I wish the game had better controls. The game looks amazing but frustrating with the "in game" inventory management system which you are getting jacked up by zombies while trying to heal yourself. yea buddy it was super frustrating.

Your partner always runs out of ammo :(

Lastly moving around is so bad I just had to return it....I just could not play the game, I think I am just used to mwf and gears that this just did not work for me. However the story and cut scenes are perfect..

Upon receiving Resident Evil 5 I expected something BIG. I have not had the chance to play any of the other Resident Evil games past 2. I requested 5 because i have heard wonderful things about the game. I noticed that it has changed very much, for one you can not shoot and walk at the same time, secondly the aiming, really a laser sight that you can never see the end of. These where two big things that bugged me, another thing that influenced everything was the clunky movements and slow reaction. The knife was horrible and hard to use. This made my time spent playing this game different, i had a tough time playing this game, but i pushed on and finished, it was an amazing idea and if the controls where better I would rate it a ten.

I'm a bit of a "ease of use purist", but for anyone who has not played previous RE titles, the controls and perspective will seem absolutely ridiculous. Capcom, break ties with the past and come up with a control scheme that the new generation can relate to.

Otherwise, the game, story, all that are great. :-)
