I give this game five stars because it is incredibly frustrating. There are countless moments in this game where you need to chain button combinations really quickly in order to complete the senario. If the combination isn't done just so you die instantly and have to start over. Jake's campaign is a pain in the butt!!. ada's is as well. There were times I just put the game down cause I got fed up. Camera angles at times are annoying because you have to run from something pushing in the direction away from it and all of a sudden the camera angle changes and your character does a 360 into whats chasing you. Ammunition is another issue! Simply not enough! I found myself kicking, punching and clawing to save ammo for when I really needed it. All in all my advice don't play this game if your easily frustrated.
After struggling through this game with my husband we both agreed it was complete tripe. There was only one moment in the game that was ever truly scary (and that was near the beginning of Leon and Helena's story) and after that it lost all semblance of fear for us. After that it was just terrible.
No terrifyingly dark alleyways, no moments where you were afraid for your life. Plenty of herbs and ammo. Just loads and loads and loads of enemies that you have to mow through which got really boring really quickly.
Then, in an effort to change things up I guess, every boss fight had to be a series of fights where the boss is never really actually dead, coupled with loads and loads and loads of utterly annoying quick time events.
A lot of this game felt like content that was just tacked on as a time sink to draw out the length of the game.
There were some enjoyable moments, but mostly not.
We loved that we got to play together on the same system, that's rare these days, and so that's why this game got a three instead of a one. Now if they just made the game actually a horror/survival shooter instead of a regular old shooter with QTEs then maybe it would've been fun.
