The first few Resident Evils were shining examples of how to do a survival horror game. Even RE 4 was great. Then Capcom replaced turn-your-sound-down scary with all out action and that's where it all started to go horribly wrong.
Next came Resident Evil 5's co-op, Operation Racoon City, multiple character storylines and the implosion was near complete. Resident Evil Revelations shows promising signs of a recovery, but we have worrying feeling that this franchise is not too far away from being swallowed up by the mutated dustbin monster.
