Goofs

In-game files as well as Resident Evil related material state that the Tyrant T-103 was created after Umbrella recovered the research data from the original fight against the Tyrant in Resident Evil. Among the Tyrant T-103 specimens is IVAN, Sergei's bodyguard. The problem is that IVAN appears and fights Wesker in-between the events of Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil which was about one day earlier than Jill or Chris fought the original Tyrant meaning IVAN would not be created for about two months as the necessary data to do so had not yet been collected.

A step. Not necessarily in the right direction, but a step nonetheless
27 April 2008 | by Mr_OfsnartSee all my reviews

This is a new sort of incarnation for the series in many ways. It eliminates the survival-horror and replaces it with running and gunning. Not that this is a bad thing - I quite enjoyed the change of pace from "how do I combine these things?", "what does this thing even do?" and "Oh, God, I forgot to use this back there, now I have to backtrack" to the much less frustrating "shoot, kill, throw grenade, listen to one-liner, shoot some more". There is no new story to absorb, just a refurbished stroll through the Resident Evil time-line, which makes storytelling as simple as replaying key events from throughout the series. It isn't groundbreaking or revolutionary in any way, just another installment in the franchise. However, I liked the added behind-the-scenes levels which told a bit more about the shady Umbrella Corporation and the backstories of certain characters, and the linearity helps to explain the sequence of events more. There isn't much about this game I can hold to fault, just don't buy it expecting any new story lines. All in all, it is a solid rail shooter without any serious defects save for the fact that Albert Wesker's cretinous voice seems to want to narrate the entire game.
