Back in 1998, a little video game known as, Resident Evil, was released for the Playstation. The game, which is considered to be the first of “survival horror” video games, had a similar effect to gamers as George A. Romero’s, A Night of the Living Dead, had on audiences. It was like nothing gamers had seen before and it included my favorite horror creation of all time: zombies! Unbeknowst to me, my favorite video game series also had a series of novels; the first is the awesome, Resident Evil: The Umbrella Conspiracy.
The game is fun for any horror fan, especially for fans of the series who are looking for a refresher. And if you haven’t played the games, the book is the perfect place to start because it will give you all of the entertainment and zombie action that you are looking for. So, pick up Resident Evil: The Umbrella Conspiracy for a quick and enjoyable read. Or else.
