In Resident Evil: Raccoon City there is a lot of thrill because you are surrounded by a monstrous mutated city but you are not scared because of the powerful guns in your possession. At times, you are cornered by the resident evil but there are ways of escaping that you have to find out. The game is termed by some critics as a franchise bastardization.
Its horror/action it shouldnt be called resident evil... I will explain Resident evil gave birth to what we now call survival horror. You are pit with countless enemies and limited weapons and ammunition to defend yourself so the game is mostly strategizing, running and hiding. That what gave resident evil its fame.
