I agree with the other sentiments that Capcom needs to pick. Are you going to be a first class shooter or a first class survival horror because they're really not cutting it combining them right now. I found myself not caring a whole lot for the piecemeal playtime with each character. I would rather they had picked a character and stuck with them throughout and then have a much bigger developing story. Maybe have the other characters available for certain multiplayer or Mercenaries. As the game feels much more like a shooter the amount of times I was cursing at the screen due to the awkward controls and layout for choosing weapons etc was way too much. The controls were in survival horror mode it seems. I missed how you could assign weapons to your directional buttons and I think the system they use is lame. Plus the points you acquire to upgrade defense, weapons etc would take several playthroughs to aquire enough to be really kickass. There's no way I want to play this more than once. I'll just play RE5 again. While it has the same shooter/survival horror dilemma it has better controls and focuses on just the two characters throughout. This is a series I always look forward too and I would say this is the first time I've been disappointed. Several times I thought about returning it with not bothering to finish but finished it just to wrap it up. This better not jinx Dead Space 3! Rent before buying.
