Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City may not be the return to survival horror that some fans of the series are wishing for, but it does look like it's shaping up nicely as a third-person shooter. Check out this lengthy cinematic trailer, in which spec-ops soldiers and Umbrella security face off while fending off hordes of zombies and other T-virus-mutated baddies.

If you're a seasoned RE fan, you'll definitely spot some familiar faces in there. As a series vet, is that enough motivation for you to pick up a title that strays so far from Resident Evil's roots? Or is Operation Raccoon City's tactical shooting gameplay simply meant for a whole different audience? Let us know your thoughts in the comments or on Twitter.
