Review: Umbrella Corps

More like Resident Evil’s corpse.

Did you know that Umbrella Corps released on PS4 and PC recently? If not, I don’t blame you as it released with no marketing or fanfare, and after playing it I can see why: It sucks. I think Capcom knew it was bad early on, hence why the Resident Evil branding is nowhere to be found in the game—even the iconic rumbling voice saying “Resident Evil” has been replaced with a woman simply saying “Umbrella” without much passion. I guess it would have been more expensive to have her say the full game’s title, and Capcom clearly wanted to cut its losses.

The easiest way to describe Umbrella Corps is a frantic arcade multiplayer third-person shooter that feels closer to something that should have been free-to-play instead of being offered for $30. Playing as a generic gas-masked guy with a few different guns, you’ll be running around zombie-filled locations based on the Resident Evil franchise in one of three modes. You can unlock various other boring black gas masks for your character, as well as other customization options, all of which are equally dull.
