Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

I ended up doing a double bill of watching Underworld: Blood Wars and this back-to-back, and I felt that Resident Evil was the funner movie of the two to watch. I’m not a huge fan of the series, but I’ve seen them all, and so I figured I’d see how they “end” it. It had some pretty fun/ridiculous action sequences, although the quick cuts (editing) throughout did get distracting at times. It’s not a great movie, but I had a pretty good time watching it.

I picked this up on 3DS last week because it was on sale for $10, and I’m sure glad I did. I have a hit-and-miss relationship with the series: I have fond memories of playing the first one, and maybe a bit of the second one, the last one I really enjoyed playing was Code Veronica on the Dreamcast, I tried Resident Evil 4, but just didn’t really get into it, and although I had fun playing 1 level of Resident Evil 5 in co-op with a friend, I never got the chance to play more of it (tried solo, and wasn’t really enjoying it much) – and I skipped Resident Evil 6 altogether. This one though, I had heard that it was pretty good – back to the ol’ confined horror of the original – and so far I’m really digging it. It really does look fantastic on the 3DS – with the 3D effect being fun in this context – and I also like the Metroid Prime-like scanning that you do in the world. And who says tank controls can’t work? You sort of get a version of it with this, in that you can’t move when you’re shooting, because you suddenly go in a first person view. I really like it, and I’d recommend picking it up, as it’s pretty cheap now. UPDATE: I was informed by my Resident Evil sempai, Alex Aniel, that you can in fact move while shooting, by holding down both L and R.
