This alone makes it a perfect fit for RE fans or misses more depending on how much you value the horror elements than the action. Ethan Winters also makes a comeback and is clearly the most malleable character in the game. Thankfully, Lady D, as well as the other Lords you encounter, provide more than enough interesting personality to carry you along.

This is also a small experience by Resident Evil standards, but it proves that the change for the first person in the series could work for an even more action-focused entry. With how much you value the actual terror (and the panic that comes with entering a room with only a few bullets and no healing items) vs. satisfying gunplay, exploration, and upgrades, you swap the placement of this game can do 7. For our money, however, this is a slightly weaker entry than its predecessor offered.
