Wow I was remembering this the other night speaking to someone about the original Rez Evil - and I always remember the way the guy said 'Barrrrry Burrrrrrton!' - great stuff
Haha yeah that is dreadful! I remember being stuck in the museum for ages and then got scared stiff anytime you went into a room and was chased by a zombie - fine game indeed. They moved away from the suspense side of things too much for me and made the series more into action games, and Rez Evil 4 was decent, but it just didn't have the same spark I felt.It's absolutely ridiculous isn't it? Still a hell of a game but things have moved on a lot.
The voice acting was just as bad...
Nicolas Cage is a high energy performer who enriched, like, the majority of those films (including Leaving Las Vegas, which he won an oscar for, and yeah I know the academy awards don't mean squat). I feel like he gets a lot of shit because people think 'good acting' is like this objective standard that only encompasses pain and sombre emotions, when really certain actors are meant to play certain parts and there's a good reason why even the most venerated of actors tend to play similar roles over and over again (bar maybe Daniel Day Lewis but then he is a Millwall supporting son of a poet laureate who spends his spare time making shoes in a secluded italian village, so he is basically a living, breathing romantic figure).
Who would you rather watch, honestly, leonardo di caprio or nic cage?
