The game comes free with Resident Evil 3 remake. Being a big fan of Resident Evil games I would have probably bought it and would've regretted it. I enjoyed the game at first but the distraction it provides is very brief. It's a 4vs1 multiplayer experience, you need a PSplus subscription to play. The graphics are slightly down compared to RE3 remake. I found the controls to be difficult especially if you play as the mastermind. The sound of the game was good I liked what the masterminds were saying as they comment on their actions and the survivor's actions. What I found annoying when playing as a mastermind and what made me lose interest in the game was when some players got good at being the survivors I felt like I had no chance to win. I was getting nowhere whatever technique I would use. Being a survivor implies getting to know the maps by playing over and over again which I didn't have an interest in doing since the game got boring quickly. The game provides a map but it takes the whole screen, I think it would've been better with a minimap. I don't recommend the game at all and my rating is one of the lowest of all my reviews because I didn't like the game at all. If you buy RE3 remake, and it's actually worth it, you might want to give RE Resistance a try because it's free but my advice is don't get a PSplus subscription only to play the game.
RE resistance is a good time for a short time that I think would truly be great with a group of friends. The game pits survivors and a mastermind against each other both played by players. The survivors play like typical resident evil characters all having their own special abilities like hacking the masterminds cameras, temporary unlimited ammo and a aoe healing ability. The survivors need to collect key items in each area to advance with their being three areas in total per map. The Mastermind has a set of camera from which he can observe the survivors from as well as set traps such as mines, zombies and other creatures including an ultimate monster depending on which mastermind your playing. The mastermind are given a deck of card that include the above items and where you apply them creates a strategic gameplay style that was fun to mess around with. The goal of the survivours to escape all three areas by beating all the objects within the time limit and the mastermind has to stop them from doing so. The actions of each faction increases or decreases the time which means a well placed monster can change the tide quickly if the survivors aren't careful. Playing as the survivors gives you new micro sized RE areas to explore that I honestly enjoyed exploring and the structure of being able to buy stuff based on performance gave me strong COD zombies vibes which is rarely a bad thing. Been given an opportunity to play as Mr X, G and nemesis is also a treat for series fans even if there is very little depth present. Overall this game was enjoyable and not the afterthought I assumed it was but could be made into something truly worthwhile if tried again and given a bit more TLC

Resident Evil: Resistance’s 4v1 multiplayer mode has its moments but could benefit from some character balancing and combat feedback that feels as good as it does in single-player. Playing as the villainous Mastermind is consistently far more of a blast than trying to stay alive as the unbalanced Survivors, particularly because you can play as iconic baddies from across the series but also because messing with your victims feels so devious.
I have the patience to play the game and hope for that potential to be realized, but the unbalanced kickoff and silly decisions like attaching hosting duty to masterminds is not something I expect many people to weather for long. Resident Evil Resistance could be so much more with what it has on the surface, but what’s under the hood needs some thoughtful tweaking if Resistance is indeed a cause worth fighting for.
I have hope that Capcom will continue to work on Resident Evil Resistance and address the balancing and connection issues. In time, as players learn the importance of teamwork as survivors, it has the potential to be worthwhile addition to the asymmetrical multiplayer genre. As it stands right now, however, it simply isn’t fun to play most of the time. Stick to Left 4 Dead in the meantime; Resident Evil Resistance is better left buried until its developers have reanimated it with some much-needed updates.
