Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is a spin on the classic survival horror franchise. Set during the events of Resident Evil 2 & 3, Umbrella has issued a squad of soldiers to clean up evidence that links the evil corporation to the T-virus outbreak in Raccoon City that resulted in a zombie apocalypse. The game is played from a third-person viewpoint and at all times you are in a four-person squad. The game tries to offer an exciting, smoother-playing, and tactical experience and partially achieves this goal. The controls are among some of the best in the series, but the game is actually very boring due to repetition, a poorly-scripted story, unimpressive graphics, and horrendous squad and enemy A.I.

This game is extremely violent and brutal. You can kill cops and spec-ops soldiers as well as zombies using a variety of conventional weapons. You can perform head-shots and dismemberment of limbs that result in copious amounts of blood that pools and splatters. You can snap people's necks and even see exposed intestines and organs.
This game has very strong language which includes f**k, damn, hell, bitch, sh*t, and a**hole.
Drug / Tobacco Use
Although, I am a big fan of the series, this game was a let-down on so many levels. Fun can be had, but in spurts. Just like previous games in the series, Resident Evil: ORC is for mature gamers only.
