Jake's game feels like the worst in the series. I just finished it and I really had no grasp of what was going on when it was all said and done. At least with Leon's game I didn't have to beat anyone elses game to understand what was going on.
Oh look... another thread derailed by Basementdude. How predictable.
But yes, I really don't see why it's Jake's campaign. Everything points to it being Sherry's. She's the senior character too. Yea, Jake had anti-bodies... But Sherry had more relevance.
Enjoy the train wreck!
But I agree, it should have been Sherry not Jake. It was her fight and she had to set him straight on 'daddy' issues so it grounded him. She's got more connection to the other leading characters, she has more history in the RE series, she's an Agent so she's an authority figure. Jake isn't any of those things... Until CapCom decided Wesker was going to be his father. Bam! Now there's a connection to someone we know about from someone we haven't met yet so he's automatically a 'hero' (<- I'm being sarcastic)
