Resident Evil has been my favorite game seires. From the first Resident Evil on the Play Station to the award wining Resident Evil 4. RE5 is a must play and it's so wonderful to see next gen graphics. Here is a list of the good and bad:
Good: Amazing Graphics and sound. Seeing the detail in HD is a big plus for all the fans of RE. Co-Op makes the game much better. Having a friend is much better then any A.I. I like the controls (Not As Good As The Wii on RE4) if the game had controls such as Gears of War, then the game would be way too easy and then scary fighting would get boring.
Bad: Where is the addicting story line? RE4 had me playing for hours with out wanting to take a break! Puzzles? It's much more fun trying to solve puzzles which has been a big part of the past RE games. Can't go backwards? in past games you can go back and check things out and use past areas to solve puzzles. Who are you selling your treasures to? It's odd that you can sell and buy items at almost any time. No need to access a merchant to store extra items. I liked that feature in RE4
Overall: This game is designed for C0-Op. Not a big fan of the level system. The type writer is missing. Some might like the auto save feature. This game has been in the works for 4 years. I feel they could have put more work into the process. A must play!
RE5 was great and I would say will be in honors for game of the year. I wanna say its as good as RE4 but it's just missing a little something I can't figure out. The co-op was the best feature so 360 n PS3 owners link up with one of your online friends and play this game!
