The series is taken in a completely new direction with this entry in the franchise, and it offers a true third person squad based shooter. The story is set in September 1998, and the action centers on the ill-fated Raccoon City and the horrific consequences of the deadly T-virus outbreak. Umbrella Corporation must cover this up and thus orders an elite team into Raccoon City to destroy all evidence of the outbreak and eliminate any survivors. However, the US government has quarantined the city and dispatched its own team of elite soldiers to determine the source of the mysterious outbreak. You will take on the role of an Umbrella Security Service soldier, competing alone or with up to four players co-op in a battle against all the competing forces at play in Raccoon City.
With the entire campaign being 4 Player Co-op this game is a must play with your friends. If your hoping for the Left 4 Dead style gameplay then you picked up the wrong game. Operation Raccoon City offers a co-op experience for you to enjoy with your friends that will keep you busy for hours, especially on the harder difficulties. There are a few multiplayer modes besides that campaign that you can play and it offers a triple threat style gameplay. Regardless of which side you get placed on while in the multiplayer realm you still have to worry about the infected that are left in the city. You have to worry about all kinds of threats from zombies, lickers and some of the bigger bosses like tyrants and the Nemisis.
With the campaign running just over 4 hours with terrible story telling and a multiplayer experience to keep you busy this is a must own for any Resident Evil fan, but if you’re hoping for the ultimate scary moments that made this franchise famous you will be let down. This is going to give gamers the chance to try and see the Raccoon City incident from another perspective and offer a great co-op adventure with endless hours of killing your friends and zombies. This is a definite rent and a must but for those looking for a game to play with a squad rather than playing with random people. I really feel like they could have told the story better and offer more cinematic moments with Leon and Claire but overall the story is about Umbrella and trying to destroy the evidence they implicates them.
