Honestly am enjoying this slightly better than RE5, seeing as I don't really count RE5 as survival horror. When I first heard about this game I thought it was going to be stupid. I started playing and I find myself enjoying it and being a big fan of the old RE. I liked revisiting the old areas and seeing the heros from the enemy point of view. AI is very bad. Should only play with other friends. I like the graphics. Story isn't great but its not bad either. Def worth renting!

First off, most of the problems that people have been complaining about in here, I have not experienced. I found a solid 3rd person shooter, while not as good as say uncharted or Gears of War, but solid enough to make the game enjoyable.
The game is a solid 3rd person shooter, it is what you would expect if someone said it was a 3rd person shooter, you can run, shoot, throw grenades, take cover so on and so forth. The only thing that I thought was weird was the inability to jump over cover. Its not a big complaint, but it is in almost every 3rd person shooter now so its just weird not having it. Killing stuff is great, nice gore and what not. As for the random damage thing, the only enemy that I really saw this happening was the lickers, seriously you could unload on one and sometimes, not all the time, it would absorb them like a sponge. AI is not bad either, well not horrible I should say. AI players will shoot, stab, and follow you. They will randomly pick up items though. Whether they need them or not, it seems they will just ignore items for the most part. Also, one of the players, his name is like Beltran or something, he likes to throw grenades, randomly, when there are no enemies. Enemy AI gets the job done. AI soldiers will hide behind cover, move from cover to cover, blind fire, etc. Zombies are, well zombies. If you were expecting them to have great AI, well then you have never seen most zombie movies. All other enemies attack you but they are not continually focused on you. They will attack your team or in some cases the enemy soldiers as well. I came across a part where two soldiers were shooting zombies in a hall, I killed one of the soldiers and the other one ended up getting overwhelmed by the zombies. It was a nice touch in my opinion.
Sound is good, nice effects, music is ok but most of the time you wont notice it.
Graphics are great, just dark since it takes place at night.
Overall this is a good 3PS title. The graphics could be better about the same as RE5. Controls are sluggish until you get the hang of them. The A.1 and online gameplay will need a patch, but what game doesn't?This is the first RE game with run and gunning so i know theres hope! I haven't been playing RE games very long but they seem to compete with Max Payne titles well. Metal Gear still is king of the throne in the 3PS world. This game is great if your friends have it to play with online. Don't buy if you don't have friends for real. Sorry to the loaners out there. This game is best for rental in my book. Saving my money for Max Payne 3
