At the risk of being biest, I LOVED THIS GAME!!!!
I loved the story mode,the new game +,The Mercenaries mode,all the little things you can get in the bonus features,like the figurines and the infinate ammo.The only thing I have against this game is I beat it in about 2 and a half days,I just wish it was longer.And given the way it ends I am under the impression that the next game won't be as potent.

This game is awesome.The graphics and gameplay are a 10(a little upset I could only play this in 720P and my buddy who has an Xbox gets to play it 1080p).Other than that I have no complaints.I finished the game a few hours ago and loved it.The boss battles are epic and the controls only took a little while to get used to-I got used to playing 4 on my Wii-a lot easier,just point and shoot.Anyway, all the complaining about not being able to run and shoot,I just didn't get.If you'r a real fan of this series you'll know YOU COULD NEVER RUN AND SHOOT in any of the RE games(besides the survivor games).Running and shooting takes away from the suspence of it in my opinion(NOT TRUE IN DEAD SPACE though).The story in this one is by far the best in the series.The buddy system in the game is also a plus-thought I'd hate it, wasn't too impressed with it in ZERO.Still miss the traditional slow moving zombies though!!!!Don't know about online play-haven't tried it, I don't like people enough to play with them online(lol).

I've always loved this series, but I just couldn't get into this one. There are no more zombies. The camera is problematic. You often find yourself struggling to see where you're going, often while running down narrow corridors from bad guys. Also, the camera's too close. Here's my biggest complaint: you hold the left stick + X to run. To turn/look left or right, you use the right stick + X. Since you can't do both of those at once, it makes it hard to run and look where you're going at the same time. Maybe they wanted to make it harder to run from enemies or something, but in reality, you can run and look where you're going at the same time. When I'm running in this game, I have to stop every time I want to turn left or right. It just annoyed me to death. On the other hand, production quality is as high as ever for this series. It looks as good as anything on PS3. I guess I just like the earlier games in the series better. If you loved R.E. 4, you'll probably like this one. If you had a frustrating time with 4, you'll be even more frustrated with this one.
