The fifth Resident Evil film is out on DVD and Blu-ray and Sony is celebrating the event with a free browser game. It's a simple, twin stick-style shooter where you control character movement with the keyboard and aim/fire with the mouse. Shoot zombies, collect pick ups, repeat. Nothing to write home about, but if you're a fan of the movies, you may have fun playing as your homegirl Alice for a change.
While Resident Evil 6 didn't hit the sales Capcom was hoping for, the films continue to bring in the dough. My guess is that's because budget and expectations are proportionally lower for the movies. There was a time when the Resident Evil games were thought of as the pinnacle of what videogames could do, whereas the films have always been critically panned. Strange how that can work in your favor depending on who your audience is.
