  1. Beginning of the end for sure, even though it was an okay game in play.

    It’s where the seriously goofy plot elements and the Wesker/Chris wank that the series suffered from started. Even the innocuous supporting cast, an effeminate boy in a collar that they linger a cutscene of Claire stepping on for a suspiciously long moment, should clue you in that the direction was more about what a writer should have spent into kleenex than writing something good, and that’s before getting into what else the Ashfords indicated about that.

        >bad boss fights, tons of backtracking, no difficulty
        Literally describing Code Veronica.

        • One of the most common complaints about CV is its difficulty, its easily the hardest game in the series aside from the original US release of 1, and the only game in the entire series where you can actually completely fuck yourself over and put yourself in an unwinnable state. you literally don’t know anything about the game.

      • kek still bitter since the 90s? 3 is an awesome game, and I prefer it to 2. Nemesis was very fun to encounter. Didnt need more enemies and exploring the city was incredible. What a terrific game.

        same as 1 and 2, it’s more difficult if anything
        >1 new enemy type
        important why?
        >illusionary choice system that barely does anything
        I’m sorry you were too stupid to understand that you could get drops from Nemesis.

        > CV is the closet to the original RE1 in the entire series
        Yeah, I remember how in 1 you could double wield and when cutscenes were about outrunning a helicopter and then doing backflip in slowmo to kill 50 armed guys in 1 shot.
