Note: The following text may contain spoilers

RESIDENT EVIL: OPERATION RACOON CITY is a third-person action horror game, which provides an alternate view of the highlights from some of the previous games in the series as the player assumes control of a special ops team engaged by the Umbrella Corporation. The game was classified '15' and contains strong bloody violence and strong language.

The BBFC's Guidelines at '15' state 'Violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury. The strongest gory images are unlikely to be acceptable'. There is frequent sight of bloodshed as enemies, both human and non human, are shot. The non human enemies (such as mutants and zombies) can have their heads and limbs blown off with more powerful weapons such as shotguns. However, after they have been defeated enemies swiftly transform into smouldering bloody bubbles before vanishing altogether. It is not possible to inflict further damage on human enemies after death. The narrative of the game places the player's character in a squad which is constantly under attack, meaning that the emphasis is on defence and survival rather than there being any sadistic element to the violence. There is also sight of blood, eviscerated bodies, and people with missing limbs as the player's character and team travel through the various environments, but the actual violence that led to these injuries is not shown.

At '15' the Guidelines also state 'There may be frequent use of strong language (for example, 'fuck')'. RESIDENT EVIL RACOON CITY contains occasional use of strong language during gameplay.
