First of all: THIS IS NOT LIKE ANY OTHER RESIDENT EVIL/BIOHAZARD GAME! To be honest, I didn't know anything about this game going in but the second I saw that this game was made with unity I was like ?What have I gotten myself into?? There is no story to be told here, it's just a bunch of mini missions with small objectives in tiny maps. The first few missions require you to kill 20 zombies and pick up whatever they drop. Which is A LOT easier than it sounds, I've just been using my melee weapon throughout the whole thing because all the zombies die in one hit of a melee attack anyways. I got this game from the Capcom Humble Bundle for a $1, and that should be the only price you should pay for this game. It is not worth $30, it's barely worth $5. For fans of the survival horror genre, I do not recommend this game. There's barely any survival aspect at all considering everything dies in one hit. For any other fan? If you're really willing to try this game, get it on sale, better yet get it from Humble Bundle right now since it's a $1. But this is not a full retail game, it's an arcade game, an overpriced arcade game. 3.5/10. If it wasn't for the price of this game, this score would be higher.
..If this wasn't in the resident evil franchise, i'd never have played it. in fact, this is only part of the series in name only. There is no survival, or even horror elements here, just pure third-person shooter action. That's not a problem for me, but if you're expecting a resi game, move along, there's nothing to see here :) Also, don't play it alone. The bots do a good enough job to help you out. The fight as well as can be expected, and don't get stuck, and generally, try to help you as much as they can. In that sense, they are more useful than most real players yet...it's just so boring with them. You are better off with real humans if they are willing to talk. As always, it is best to play this with friends. Preferably someone who knows the series. He might tell you interesting things about the levels :)
Okay... uhmm... I played when it was released, and I doubt that they added more features now or fixed their mess. I haven't played since then, and won't play ever again. Should I say that Umbrella Corps is amazing and puts to shame most titles of the series? No. Will I say good things about Umbrella Corps? No. I'll be real about it. Being a fan over the years of the Resident Evil series (both games & movies), makes me despise this game so much because it COULD have had so much potential or even be with more ambition, but... no. This is a game where Capcom did a VERY poor 'work' to make it. Where to start? Hmm, with something less frustrating... first: Bugs! It had a few here and that were nothing serious, but still they existed. Second: Repetitive. A lot. I'm not kiding, you are doing the same things that bound by less than 30 missions that's WAY too boring (collecting samples... going through a boring process through a lot of zombies... kind of the same thing over and over in a really boring way), and not really worth to even try it out. The online part is pretty messy too, and boring. It's like the only purpose of this game, is to make you collect DNA samples. They should rename the game as: DNA Corps: Umbrella Samples, for real. Plus, couple of connection issues occured and probably still do. Third: Mechanics! Quite simple ones, that are kind of ridiculous for a game such as this. Melee attacks are weird and not alright. Shooting mechanics are a bit messy. Oh, one additional to this: The camera. The bloody camera is over the shoulders, and the character in the game shoots SO weird, like he raises and aims way off, like his arm with the pistol reaches his shoulder. I've never seen this one before. So weird! But let's just pass this one, shall we? Not satisfying... not at all. Fourth: Maps... only one I liked, which is the one that's like playing in Resi 4. All maps though, to me, felt a bit small. They aren't the best, but they ain't.... oh well, maybe the maps are the only good in this game. Maybe, just maybe. It's still debatable though with the following, which is.... fifth: CUSTOMIZATION! Customization is alright, bringing you a couple of stuff here and there to change, in various parts. Not much to say about this one, thus, now that I'm rethinking about it, I still do believe it is debatable if the maps or the customization are the best parts of the game, seriously. Last but not least.... sixth: the guns! They are... okay, but they won't save the game, really. If you guys believe that No Man's Sky was bad, wait til you see THIS one. At least with No Man's Sky, the guys there still struggle to update it and add features/stuff they promised the game would had. With Umbrella Corps, on the other hand, this is simply a garbage game, developed badly, Capcom didn't really focused as they should on many things around it, it comes from a very well known company (difference with No Man's Sky) and it's simply... NOT worth the money. Proceed with caution spending 29.99$ for this ridiculous and boring Spin-off of the Resident Evil series. One of the worst games, ever.
The game's single player is the same missions and settings over and over. The AI is terrible even for zombies. The game play is lack luster in single player and extremely repetitive. No real story or anything it doesn't deserve to be called Resident Evil. The multiplayer is slightly better because other humans can provide more of a challenge. However the weapons aren't balanced and the 3 on 3 combat is poor. There are F2P games that are superior to this title in every way. Also good luck on even getting connected to other players because they are rare.
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.
