Its systems are either unreliable or illogical, and as a result, it feels almost impossible to get a foothold. The first time an enemy kills you when they should have been dead, you may shrug it off. When it happens the dozenth time, you'll probably wonder why you're playing Umbrella Corps at all. There's ultimately no good excuse.
The other online mode (there 's a terrifically boring, tutorial-like single-player campaign as well) gives you one life and as such is more tactical, functionally more akin to Counter-Strike of Search and Destroy. But it still can't make up for Umbrella Corps voluminous problems elsewhere, and £25 is too much cash for too little in the way of quality. A confused and confusing shooter which can't capitalise on the famous franchise it leans on.
Umbrella Corps is a bad competitive shooter that doesn’t even know how to take advantage of its few strengths. Its mechanics frequently contradict each other, balance is absurd, controls are clumsy, and it fails to pull anything meaningful from the Resident Evil universe other than some recognizable settings. With no great story hooks for horror fans and mechanics that can’t compare to most modern shooters, Umbrella Corps feels like a game made for no one.
