The adaptations of video games to the small or big screen do not always end up giving good results. We have the best example with the recently released Resident Evil series on Netflix, since the specialized press has not hesitated to criticize it harshly, although not as much as the users themselves, who they have cataloged it as a terrible product.
You just have to take a look at the scores it has obtained on the Rotten Romatoes portal, where professionals have given it an average of 51%, although only 25% of the public has ended up satisfied with it. For its part, in Metacritic the press has given it an average of 53 points out of 100 compared to the 1.6 mark by the community.
posts to compare to other Netflix video game series we find that users have given a 6.8 to the adaptation of The Witcher, a 6.9 to The Cuphead Show!, a 7.9 to the Castlevania animation series and even a 9.3 to Arcane, the League of Legends series.
In short, this makes resident Evil in one of the worst rated series in the entire Netflix catalog. And the truth is that you yourselves have not been very different in the criticism that Frankie recently published, in which his final assessment indicated the following:
Resident Evil, the Netflix series, wants to offer many things at the same time in those eight hours of footage except one: what gives character, identity and a reason for being to Capcom video games. Something daring, of course, but in the way in which the series has been built and assembled, they end up making it a mistake.
