Episode Summary

X-Play checks out games that end in 2!
On tonight's episode of X-Play, we review Resident Evil: Outbreak File #2. Capcom’s survival horror series is as difficult to kill off as one of its shuffling, groaning zombies lurking behind the corner of a gloomy hallway. The prolific publisher has given its undead franchise new life by taking it in different directions, albeit with some mixed results, from the gun-toting Resident Evil: Survivor to the multiplayer action found in Resident Evil: Outbreak. The latter game sold well enough to warrant a second online-based adventure, which features four scenarios designed to test your teamwork ability as much as your survival skills. Once again, Capcom is taking you down to Raccoon City, where the grass is green and the ghouls are ugly.

How hard-boiled can a guy get? It looks like nobody turned the burner down after the original Dead to Rights in 2002 wrapped up, because Jack Slate is a cop that’s so hard-boiled his insides are starting to turn green and cracks are starting to appear on the surface. Leave it to X-Play to tell you if this is a good thing or a bad thing.

Many game sequels have been accused of delivering “more of the same.” And depending on the quality of the game in question, “more of the same” isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In the case of Stronghold 2, we were fully prepared for more of that good old castle building/storming goodness. And sure enough, that’s what the game delivers along with a heap of problems.
