The coolest survival horror game franchise continues its dark and gory exploration of the zombie theme. Here one of the game's earlier characters Leon return on a mission to save a VIP's kidnapped daughter. But in the creepy woods he has to face a very dark and deadly force with drooling freaks lusting after his blood, not only with their rotting teeth, but even chainsaws! Almost every aspect is again jacked up and changed to give the gamer a new perspective, in this case literally with more of a first person view and approach (your drawn weapon's laser sight beaming ahead of you). Obviously you need to collect essentials on your quest, like weapons, ammo and recovery herbs, as usual your storage holding limited supplies. You can take the game on as Leon or Ada, making it double intense. Finishing the game in good time allows for the unlocking of more gaming extras. The detail is more refined and the mood is driven to a new and intense level as the vastness of this eerie and exciting chapter in one of the best horror game series expands even further. Don't expect this game to lack atmosphere, scares, blood and screams, 'cos you're gonna get it.
