Good

Not as bad as you think...

This game was dissappointing, ONLY b/c you can only be Tyrus (the girl from the first one). Axe Battler and Gilius Thunderhead are both in the game, but they are not playable characters (which sucks). It was still a fun game, and much more challenging than I expected. There are some boss fights that are just cheap, but I was supprised by the ease in which I beat The Death Adder (the final boss).

All in all, this was an entertaining game. I do not feel like I wasted my time at all beating this game. It was definitely something to do until Bioshock and Resistance 2 came out.

Also: In case you haven't read any other reviews, this game is somewhat choppy and should have been beta tested!!!!!

While other reviewer (not all) didn't seem to think this game was that good, I liked it. By no means do I think it's the greatest game ever but it is far from terrible or unplayable. I thought the graphics were good, the sound was good, the cinematics were good, the game play was good. I love the beasts you get to ride and control! The one thing I am negative about is the locations where it saves and you can continue from if you are killed. At times I had to start from what I thought was a ridiculously long set back. During those parts I would get kinda bored playing the same thing over and over. Fortunately, this is not the case for the whole game.

Again, the game is very good. I don't feel like I wasted my money buying it. As far as replay value I'm not sure yet I haven't really tried replaying it because I spend too much time playing/replaying RE5! Greatest game to date on PS3 in my opinion!

The game is not as bad as everyone is saying. However, it does not break any new ground. It is simply an updated version of the classic, but of course not quite as exciting. The voice acting is so laughably bad, it's actually entertaining. The gameplay was a pretty good experience - not mind-blowing, but good. Overall, I had a good time with it, but it was a bit easy to beat. Not worth buying, but indeed worth playing if you like gaming.
