A surprisingly creepy iteration of Resident Evil; this game tries to return to the horror roots. The story is in episodic format, and gets a bit convoluted with constant switching between characters/time periods. It's also slightly uninspired but the atmosphere and small degree of exploration allowed makes up for it. Enemies are horrifying and resource management is more important than it was in RE4 or RE5 (I actually ran out of ammo a few times). Despite originally being for the Nintendo DS, the HD version really improves the graphics, being as good as RE5 on medium settings.
Raid mode is a fun time-waster but gets repetitive after a few hours. Recommended but I'd wait for a sale.
