That first Spec Ops mission, which you can download for free right now, was just a small taste of what you can expect from the Spec Ops campaign. It’s an appetizer, if you will, and today we’re getting more of the main course. I finally got the chance to play Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City last weekend and while I definitely went in with some insanely low expectations, thanks in no small part to TJ’s pseudo-rant on the game, I actually had some fun with it. It’s not great, in fact, it’s a struggle for me to even call it a good game, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun with it. After beating the USS campaign I reluctantly decided to download and check out the lone Spec Ops mission, and I had more fun fighting Nemesis as the good guys than I did getting my ass kicked by Leon and Claire as the bad guys. Head past the break for more info!
According to a description of the DLC provided by Capcom, the pack offers “3 tough new Spec Ops missions. Following intelligence from Jill Valentine, Echo Six elite squad continue the hunt for the crucial evidence that will prove Umbrella’s guilt in the Raccoon City outbreak. The chaos that has overtaken the city means a brutal battle for survival. Every squad member must bring their specialist skills to the fight to ensure the mission succeeds. The missions take you across the city. First to City Hall and deadly USS sniper squads; then to Umbrella’s secret underground facility and a brutal encounter with the Nemesis; finally through the city sewers and a desperate rescue mission and escape from G-Birkin.”
So that’s three missions that probably take 30-40 minutes each and 250 extra cheevos. Who here’s getting this, and I’d also like to know what class you’re most fond of. I’m more of a Vector man, myself. There’s nothing quite like cloaking, running up behind an unsuspecting soldier, kicking him in the knee and snapping his neck. So good.
