ORC suffers from a bad, poorly thought-out story and characters without personality. The set pieces are forgettable and the atmosphere is nonexistent.
The graphics look fine, with pretty good character models of familiar RE characters in Heroes mode. It matters very little, though, since there’s nothing interesting to look at.
The music fails to set the right tone. Familiar RE sound effects are cool, naturally, but almost seem out of place in this spinoff gone wrong.
Insufferably bad AI, unbalanced enemies, spotty aiming and a terrible sticking mechanic destroy ORC’s great-in-theory concept.
Four multiplayer modes extend the fairly short campaign - but the gameplay is so bad, there’s no real reason to play any longer than you have to.
