OK, I already know all the superfans hate the title I have given the review....but as a hardcore RE fan myself I expected alot from this latest addition. Was I disappointed? My answer is "a little bit". Here is why. When I got my first Playstation and Played RE2 for the first time...I must say I was witnessing an evolution in the video game. Hardcore violence, puzzles, cinematic cut scenes, stunning graphics....I could go on forever. And when RE4 came along I knew that the legacy was solidified....RE was destined to be the greatest of all video game franchises of all time, no question. Now we have RE5.... the great return of Chris Redfield....so exciting. Here we go, where are the genius problems and puzzles to solve to get to the next area????? Who's idea was it to turn tradition into a lead through, rather than a mind boggle....where is the reward in that????? I used to love spending hours trying to figure it out, in this edition, I did not get that challenge. That is my major beef with the game. Now, the graphics are sick and the gameplay is pretty cool, but the weapons purchase and upgrades is also a hand out...actually quite boring. I do give it props for the team play. Even though sheva shoots chris more than the enemy sometimes it is very handy to have someone around at all times to help out in tight spots. So I will wrap this up......Story 5 stars, Puzzles 1 star, Gameplay 3 stars, Cut scenes 5 stars, menus and options 3 stars. Just being honest here. RE5 is a good game, but I feel that the tradition is slowly slipping away and turning into an action franchise.
We love the graphics on Resident Evil 5!
We bought it because we loved Resident Evil 4.We still have it and we still play it.I think that Resident Evil 4 was a better game...much better done.The movements of the player were so much more realistic than on the new one.
