Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness has had its first reviews.
The CGI animated series, which aired on Thursday, is based on Capcom’s successful horror video game series.
In the first season, the story streams between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5.
The four-episode series was created by Hiroyasu Shinohara, who is also the author of the Resident Evil franchise.
The official summary reads: Resident Evil has distributed over 110 million copies worldwide.
Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield, a popular pair, feature in this CG serialised drama!
You won’t want to miss this bigger-than-ever spectacle.
Some critics praise the animation and action, while others claim there is a lack of character depth and a compelling tale.
No one is going to mistake it for high art, but what is atypical of video games and illogical in Milla Jovovich’s movies surprisingly works as a CGI four-episode TV series.
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness lacked a riveting tale and compelling supporting characters.
“On the whole, the anime is a delightful side tale that allows Leon a great chance to come back into the forefront while paying homage to the franchise’s horror roots.”
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is not made for fans of the video game series, the zombie genre, or even the heavy-handed political thrillers that it claims to revere.
