This is an amazingly well-designed and fresh game. The Resident Evil series has needed a complete overhaul for quite some time, and the game developers definitely delivered in this installment. This game's visuals are astounding to say the least, and the control couldn't be tighter. The only problem I had was the lack of a strafe capability, but that's forgivable when you take into account the number of things done right in this game. Firstly, the enemy A.I. has been turned up a notch. No more mindless zombies. These enemies are smart, and present a challenge, much more so than the zombies of old did. It requires you to think about your next move, but, think to long and you’re dead, don't think enough and you’re (you guessed it) dead. There is more ammo to be had this time around, and a bevy of weapons make this game a blast to play. Even the second time around you get new weapons that you couldn't obtain until beating the game once. The interaction between the character and the environment is now a huge part of staying alive. No more pre-rendered backdrops either, all of the graphics are produced on the fly. I would recommend this fans of the series and newcomers alike, it's an awesome gaming experience that should not be passed up.
