Resident Evil in 3D
It goes without saying that the graphics and scenery of Resident Evil titles is pretty gruesome, but for those who play shooter games for the graphics alone, not one of the Resident Evil games has ever been a disappointed and the same can be said for the latest Mercenaries title. However, the graphics are taking one step up now as the latest release of Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D adds another dimension that makes the zombies, guns, and characters all jump right back at you in a thrilling, albeit almost frightening manner.
Popping out on a handheld console
More remarkable then the fact that The Mercenaries is available in 3d however, is perhaps the fact that for the first time ever the popular franchise is taking a stab at the handheld gaming market with its latest release intended for use on the Nintendo 3DS gaming console. A collection of stages that are compiled from Resident Evil’s four and five; the game is set against time in typical Mario fashion as players attempt to get through as many enemies as possible in a very amped up manner. There is no simple squashing of heads however, as the word decapitation may be a bit more appropriate.
Networked of single game play
Adding to the draw of the 3DS version for gamers who may not be used to the small screen play, is the fact that the Mercenaries 3D can be played solo or jointly via the network with another player for maximum enjoyment. Therefore, you can get your mates involved as you race against time in the fast paced action shooting play of Resident Evil to kill as many zombies and government agents as possible before the clock runs out.
Choice of Resident Evil favourites
If this is not enough to have you considering purchasing a Nintendo 3DS just for the experience, Resident Evil junkies may be intrigued to hear that they get to choose their favourite characters from all of the different franchise titles to use. In a complimentary fashion, you also will get the chance to defeat some of the most notable enemies of the legendary game as well including the horrific Pop Karimu and the Executioner in full 3D colour. Add in the skill slot feature and you can pretty much customize Mercenaries 3D into the perfect gaming experience for you.
