Seven Years Later... "RESIDENT EVIL: Degeneration"

I remembered this game back in my high school days. It was the first ever "zombie game" on the gaming console that actually rocked and spooked the hell out of lots its gamers. Resident Evil or Bio Hazard aficionados is going to love this new animated movie follow up movie from the Resident Evil game series.

Spoiler Alert
(May Contain some story reviews, summary and images which might spoil you.)

The premise of the story is set seven years after the outbreak of the T-Virus in Racoon City. The threat of the zombie infestation is now under-controlled but terrorism and violence is still rampant in the new society.

Claire Redfield is now a non-governmental organization representative which handles search and rescue of chemical and bio-terrorist attacks. As Claire arrives at the airport for some official NGO business, catastrophic events after the other started happening. A zombie appeared at the airline terminal and attacked and started infecting (literally biting) by-standards. Later an airplane crashed down on the terminal containing a number of zombies (humans infected with the t-virus)

Claire, together with the remaining survivors sought refuge and radioed about their where abouts. An rescue team was sent to save the survivors which was lead by Leon Scott Kennedy together with ex-SWAT police officer Angela Miller and Rani Chawla.

What happened next was a series of events and conspiracy, all unfolding the plot about the government, the bio-terrorist, and the world (This is me saying that the spoiler is over).

The Resident Evil: Degeneration special DVD and Blu-ray releases are slated for December 17, 2008 in Japan and December 27, 2008 in North America. For loyal aficionados of the Resident Evil game series, this movie is definitely a must. It is the movie which will conclude the game series (...or not. You will know once you've watched it), just like what the Final Fantasy Advent Child movie did.
