Resident Evil Resistance
Top Critic Average
The Mastermind gets to have most of the fun in Resident Evil: Resistance, but surviving is less than a blast.
As a freebie included with Resident Evil 3, you can't really fault Resistance, but it helps that its asymmetrical multiplayer is also a lot of fun. It's a unique take on the Resi universe and I hope it finds some longevity.
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.
There’s a long way to go for Resident Evil Resistance before it can compete with its single-player counterpart.
The Resident Evil multiplayer curse continues. Resident Evil Resistance presents some promising ideas, and messing with people as the Mastermind has its moments, but unsatisfying action, clunky level design, a lack of content, and manipulative microtransactions snuff out the game's potential. Sadly, trying to wring more than a few minutes of fun from Resident Evil Resistance is futile.
All in all, Resident Evil Resistance and its various concepts certainly show promise. Heck, it can even be an adrenaline rush when things go right. As it is now, however, the lack of content prevents it from reaching its true potential. It’s not dead on arrival like Umbrella Corps was. Unless it gets more fleshed out, however, Resistance is more akin to an ambling zombie that’s holding on to life.

Resident Evil Resistance is likely going to fall by the wayside like the repugnant Umbrella Corps, and be remembered as that thing nobody wanted. For years fans have wanted a new Resident Evil: Outbreak and sadly, they are going to miss something that manages to be as good as it.
At first glance, Resident Evil Resistance seems interesting and creative. However, level design issues, illogical challenges, and numerous technical problems do not let it find its place among other online titles, and soon few people will want to experience it
