I don't think Four Eyes is useless. If you're playing her then have use the pherimone grenade with her. It's good when you have a horde coming at you. Use it then throw a explosive grenade right after. Easy way to thin the horde.
best tip out there always have bertha in the squad for health and either be lupo for maximum strength and damage or be spectre to have the item view perk which will get you loads more xp by the end of the mission. four eyes is just usless!
Here is a better tip. Play as Lupo. Take the Cowboy Shotgun. Pick the Super Soldier skill. Now when you see a group of enemies, pop super soldier to gain limited invulnerability, then run in and blast the hell out of them with the shotgun at close range. most enemies will go down with one or two shots at most. And because Lupo reloads so amazingly fast thanks to her skills, you will be able to wipe out large groups taking little or no damage.
Survival tip in co-op- don't walk in front of your teammates that are shooting at enemies and then complain that you got your head blown off by a teammate. We are not mind readers! Obviously this is veteran or pro difficulty only.
Just fix the AI and this game should be ok. You know it sucks when you get stuck in a level because the AI won;t follow you through the door to get to the next load point and you have to start from the checkpoint again just to correct it.
This game has problems but I still like it. I can go with my gut and not have listen to other people's opinions to make a decision for myself. Everyone hating on this game and have not even played, it owe it to themselves to at least rent it and see that it was not that bad.
i am gonna get this game the only good review is playing a game for your slef. on one side of the coin you get game that are not as good as they make out like cod on the other hand you get games they slag off but turn out to be good when you play them and i get the feeling when i get to play operation raccoon city it is going to be an example of a good game that gets bad reviews.
This must be for the 5 people who still own the game. People who didn't return it or burn the piece of crap that it ended up being. First disappointment of 2012 (glad I didn't buy it). This is proof that a franchise name doesn't make the game worth anything.
I'd also like to give some tips:
- If you walk towards a wall, you will never stick to it. Push the analog stick firmly, and you will. This will help people who are frustrated with the auto-stick system.
- Use zombie shields against zombie hordes. Grab a lone zombie and immediately throw it back towards the crowd. It will buy you some precious seconds to run back, gain some ground and start shooting under less pressure.
- Don't be afraid to use your grenades. If you kill zombies, grenades can be random drops, as well as sprays and herbs. If you prefer to preserve ammo (also dropped from zombies at a random rate), there's plenty of grenades scattered throught levels waiting for you to pick them up. Just search a bit. And learn when to use each one; stun buys you time, incendiary inflicts massive damage over time, induces panic and also blows people away upon detonation, same as frags.
- Make good use of your abilities. No abilities are useless, and thus, no character is useless. Four-Eyes is not very popular as of now, but she is a pretty damn nice tool if used correctly, for example. Keep in mind that even AI squadmates utilize their abilities, so upgrade your main character, but don't overlook the other characters.
Hope this helps people realise that RE:ORC is not a perfect game, by a long shot, but it's definitely not a "bad" game either. It's an above average squad shooter that focuses on its excellent multiplayer.
