I read all the bad reviews but when the game was on sale for $10 on PSN I purchased it. I enjoyed it! The story was okay not excellent and could have used more detail but that was really my only gripe with the game. Gameplay was fun, controls fluid, I liked the inventory system it was easy to use, nothing wrong with big action scenes to me I think it's exciting, graphics were great, I didn't find the insertion of button actions to be intrusive and mess up the game either, they don't occur as often as reviews I have read imply. If someone was interested in playing RE1 then yes they would be disappointed but if the game wasn't labeled a Resident Evil game it would be gotten better reviews.
