I've just bought Resident Evil: Outbreak expansion. I like the base game. Compared with Thunderstone and Ascension (which I have both of the games and like them for their respective mechanics), this games add an element of unpredictability (you don't know which monster that will appear from the mansion) which creates an enjoyable tension among my group of gamers.

Also, this games forces you to think of the most effective combination of cards to build your deck according to the character you have at the start.

With the new expansion, it introduces the OUTBREAK mechanics which provides greater tension in the game play.

However, I was highly disappointed with the quality of the printed artwork. Many of the images seem so 'hazy' especially with blue Action cards. In addition, there are some white stripes that marred the image quality. Overall, it seems that those images have been scanned by a poor quality scanning machine and then later on printed on the cards.

Another gripe I have is that the card dividers that come with the box set only covers the Basic cards and the cards of the Outbreak expansion. It does include any separator for the other cards in the Base set.


For the price I've paid, I feel it doesn't seem to be worth it as compared to the other deck-building genre. Just want to know any of you guys who have the games faced similar problems and do you think we can do anything about it (especially with the quality of the artwork).

I find the artwork to be ok. I kind of like the gloomy feel.

As for the dividers, I felt the same way. I guess thatBandai still has a lot of homework to do on this format of card games.

I did dividers for the base set which I printed and laminated. Works pretty well.

Resident Evil Deck Building Game: Nightmare has a storage box and dividers for the first four games' cards. They even fit sleeved.

The designer claims it will also hold the fifth expansion and that the sixth game will be a new base game.

@ Patrick.
Sorry for the use of the capital letter. Was deeply disappointed with the cards I received. It looks like somebody have taken the image with a camera of a cheap mobile phone and then put the image on the card (see below). Also, you can see that some consistent white line that marred the image in all the action cards (you may have to click on the image to go to the image gallery and then look at them in the original size). Does anyone of you face the same problem with the cards?

Maybe, I'm having a wrong expectation that leads to my disappointment.

I apologize for the white space in the image. I don't know how to crop it using my current software. I am not that computer literate.

 


Does anyone know how I can resize this image in my post?

I see what your saying with the art. The scratches were added to add to the design of the cards, to further the gloomy type of atmosphere. If the pictures were perfectly clear, it wouldn't quite fit with the rest of the card.

I think that the artwork of the cards from the previous sets do justice from the original games of the series, with poor graphics. But like we can see at the cards inspired on the latest games (RE4 and forward), the graphics are too much better. I have high expectations for the upcoming expansions artwork, which will follow the release of the console games.
