While Capcom decided, over recently years, instead of developing new releases, focusing on releasing the Remaster version of the first Resident Evil games, a small team that belongs to this company, was building a Spin-off game with a limited budget called Umbrella Corps, which has a completely different style and has only a multi-player and co-op experience. I should say that Capcom has experienced a massive defeat by making this game, and the Japanese company's desperate attempt to attract new and Western audiences to the Resident Evil franchise can be clearly seen. As soon as you enter the game, your limits appear. The first and greatest problem of the game, which seems very strange to deal with it in the totally online and multiplayer titles, is a very low number of game modes. In fact, there are only two modes called One Life Match and Multi-Mission in the game, which are the same as Team Deathmatch and Kill Confirmed, respectively. Various issues, including poor gameplay, the not-so-interesting graphics, along with the problems of permanent frame dropdown, poor sounding and high pricing, have made Umbrella Corps one of the most worthless titles in this year and even the eighth generation of video games.
Unlike most resident evil games, this one is not a survival horror, but rather a third person coop action game, where you have to fight various enemies. It can be fun for a while, especially if youre not playing alone(do not play alone!). Unfortunately, it gets old really fast. The levels look same-y, and the enemies are bullet sponges, no matter what kind they are. The deluxe edition adds a little extra content. The main feature is that you can play as series regular characters. I like Wesker, but not that much, so i only bought the deluxe, because i buy deluxe from everything :)
First of all: 1) Small player base. Finding a match is difficult. It's a no-brainer, you can not play a multiplayer pvp game if there are not enough people around to play with. Nothing is more annoying in a game, than waiting and looking at the screen as nothing happens. 2) Keyboard and mouse support - they are bad. As many people said already, the mouse moves on x and y axis and resembles a joystick/analog stick of a controller. It makes it feel very awkward and is in no way precise. You eventually get used to it, but that is not an entirely a good thing - I quit the game and had to "shake it off". 3) Auto aim (on by default) and full ability to spectate enemy team in a ranked play? Wow. Spectating is terrible though Those are the main DO-NOT-BUY kinds of issues that I HAD. But a lot of players are unable to even start up the game, Thankfully I did not have those problems. As for the game itself, it is a 3v3 PVP game, with camera glued to left or right shoulder. Animations feel cheap, loading times for ultra-small maps are rather long, sounds are ripped forom other RE games, interface does not only look cheap, it's as if it was taken straight out of a console game. Oh, it was. So radial selection wheels, no typing/chat of any type. Weapons do not feel balanced, and at the same time a lot of them feel like they are pretty much the same. Melee weapons seem OP, one hit kill in a large radius in front of you (in a CONE actually, so even easier to trigger). That also gives you speed boost, so it's very easy to do, even if a better player starts to shoot you right as they see you, they will most likely die anyway. What is good though? VERY nice customization when it comes to colors and custom decals that you can create on residentevil.net site! (on a side note, the decal was resetting for me, I had to reapply it on the site, annoying) Graphics are not bad, especially for UNITY engine. Zombies, small scale combat is something else and can be fun. Old Resident Evil maps/locations. Seems to be optimized fairly well (no FPS drops) Single player missions (they might be bad, but they ARE in, probably nobody expected that) I would give the game 6/10, with an underline that I am a heavy RE fan. I just love the franchise. I would still say Operation Raccoon City was a better multiplayer game though, even today! Less generous player or someone who would read what I read above would probably give the game 4/10 and would be right :)
got the deluxe, decent content but you can skip it unless there is something in it that you really really want (Wesker, Leon, Hunk ETC)
Umbrella Corps manages to make an even worse Resident Evil game then Operation Raccoon City did. The game is primarily made for multiplayer but does feature 20 some single player missions, which are all similar and take place on the games few maps, because you are only fighting zombies you aren't even able to make any real use of the game's mechanics, the cover system just ends up getting in the way. A badly written story is told through journal entries as you play through the stages. Multiplayer mode consists of a deathmatch with no respawns and a mode with different random objectives over a small amount of maps that are mostly taken from prior areas from old Resident Evil games. The game is full of strange and unfinished looking animations, such as the odd way that your gun is always raised to the side of your face or the speed and look of characters as they crawl around on the floor. Movement usually feels like you are sliding around the map, the guns feel weak, and the melee kills are overpowered and ridiculous for the setting. The only positive part of the game is the ways that you can customize your character's appearance and gun look but there is no reason to want to customize and unlock equipment in a game with such poor gameplay. There are zombies spread around the map in multiplayer modes that might attack you, which could have been interesting in a better game, maybe a multiplayer focused mode in Call of Duty's zombie maps. The Deluxe Edition allows you to play with the character models of the series main protagonists and antagonists, this is definitely not worth the added price as the characters all look weird with the animations, have nothing unique about them like getting characters in the mercenary modes of past games, and takes away the customization options that the game gives you.
