**** While it's true there are non-whites in Europe, European Spanish are generally Caucasian.



** Re: No peep about ''Resident Evil 4'': European Spanish people are Caucasian, not Latino, so Leon was killing other white people.

*** I have this bodybuilding magazine where they had these freaks, these absolute freaks that made the Governator look tiny. Here's one of them.\\

*** Ignoring whether or not it's plausible, wouldn't you want to beef up if you had your ass handed to you the last time you saw your "rival"? Considering how badly Wesker beat the crap out of Chris, he probably wanted to try to be on equal footing, or at least strong enough to beat the hell out of him if he could hit him.

*** Like the story of the mother ''lifting a tractor off her crushed son''?
*** I can't remember where I heard this from, but apparently some boulders aren't completely solid and have a lot of space in them, reducing the weight. If that's true, then the bolder wouldn't be as heavy as it looked, and combine that with desperation and adrenaline, then Chris could have knocked it over.
*** He tried to push and found it ineffective and resorted to punching it instead. I seriously don't think punching a rock (with a stance that obviously wouldn't utilize your whole body) would have been more effective than pushing it. If so, they should really hire some boxers for moving companies.

*** Well, that was nice of the boulder to cooperate then.

*** ''Sending in American soldiers without the permission of the country in question is an invasion.'' Yes, perhaps you noticed when the United States did that twice in the past 8 years, to catch men with substantially less American blood on their hands than Spencer.

*** When Osama bin Laden was actually assassinated by American special forces, they did so in violation of international law. And no one gave a shit, because it was Osama bin Laden. Spencer is far worse.

*** Just FYI, and as much as it pains me, Sheena Island is canon, as it was cited in the prologue of the very canon RE0. With that in mind, Sheena is still just Rockfort bis.
*** Ignoring the small amount of places that Umbrella destroyed, the company was a cover for ILLEGAL BIO-WEAPON MANUFACTURING! That would be guaranteed to piss many countries off. Also, if you read Sheva Alomar's Personnel file, you would find that her parents were killed because they knew vital information about a B.O.W. test. Now, Umbrella was paying off the government, but as soon as this information was known to the public, that would piss off a LOT MORE PEOPLE!

*** Because they had ''dozens'' of heavily armed soldiers as backup? Did you somehow miss the fact that there were ''two entire platoon-sized teams'' of BSAA soldiers operating in the same area at the same time as Chris and Sheva?
*** In Africa they did. Not when they went after Spencer. They just send Chris and Jill with handguns. If they had whole platoons backing them up, there would have at least been a perimeter to prevent people from escaping. Plus, more than two people would have entered the creepy mansion. (Considering every single other Umbrella building in the world seems to be filled with hundreds of deadly monsters or dozens of gun toting soldiers, or both.)

*** Then what was the goal of all the complaining? Making sure everyone knew how upset critics were? Trust us, we got that message, loud and clear; we also enjoyed the game in spite of them.

*** Additionally the reason Wesker kept Jill alive was so he could use her antibodies (a result of the cure administered to her when she was infected by the B.O.W Nemesis back in {{Resident Evil 3}}) to allow the select few infected by the virus to fight it off and become the promised superhumans he will rule over rather than get killed outright. Judging from the information provided from the wiki site, Wesker considered infecting Jill with the virus once she outlived her usefullness. However, at that point Jill had so many antibodies permeating her body that she was already highly resistant to infection from the virus. The promised evolved human that Wesker wanted from his new world was right in front of his eyes, but since she was his greatest enemy second to Chris Redfield she just became another remote controlled puppet instead.

** Plus, in ''Resident Evil 4'', it was a white guy shooting other white people. As the troper above me stated, given the context and history of Africa and how the whites treated them over the centuries, a game where a white man mows through dozens of Africans nonstop, ''and'' the UnfortunateImplication that they need a strong white man to come save them from the big bad virus is going to raise a lot of heat.

*** Your partner is "black" in the sense that Halle Barry is black. Sure they have darker skin and some features but they're clearly not completely black and often lack the really dark skin or more traditional African features. The problem is that your partner is supposed to be black African not mixed American, and then they went and got the regional language wrong on top of it. Plus these games aren't made or marketed in a void where history and other media doesn't exist, just because other forms of media have made the same mistake doesn't make them immune from criticism. And I've never heard of a game being banned just because it got a few criticisms thrown at it...

*** It isn't just her hair, though. Compare Jill in the previous games and brainwashed Jill in RE5. Her skin is much, much paler, probably because of the drugs she was injected with and the fact she's been wearing a hooded jacket and mask for months.
