Resident Evil Outbreak File #2 – Consumer Guide

Daniel Weissenberger's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Strong Language, Violence

Parents, don't even consider buying this for your children. It's deeply, horrifically violent. There's blood, guts, animal mutilations, and all of the mature subject matter that people have come to expect from the series.

Longtime Resident Evil fans should run out and get this game immediately. In addition to offering an unparalleled co-operative multiplayer, the solid single player experience delivers fans of the series exactly what they've come to expect.

For those afraid of innovation and excellence, the game is fully playable under the old (character-relative) control scheme. Using the direction pad to play offers the classic, awkward gameplay that longtime Resident Evil fans are so fond of.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing Gamers will be in trouble. Much of the dialogue isn't subtitled, and playing the multiplayer mode without voice communication can be a baffling ordeal. Worse still, being able to hear the approach of enemies or a door being knocked down is vitally important in the game, rendering this title very unfriendly to the hearing-impaired.
