"Resident Evil moves up a notch"
5 stars"

Has to be the game of the year, it looks amazing, as already mentioned the difference between cutscene graphics and the actual game is barely noticeable, also features some interactive cutscenes, mainly dodging bosses, which is something I've seen used in Bourne Conspiracy and seems to work well. Instead of just watching a cutscene you've got to have your wits about you to get the combination of buttons right.

I've nearly completed the game and it took me ages, each level is well presented and some of the boss battles feel nearly impossible. Even with this i've still got heaps to unlock including weapons upgrades, files and more. I like that theres plenty of containers around to break to find ammo and other useful tools.

I agree not being able to move and shoot can be hard and i wish the knife could be left in hand when you run out of bullets as its slow to withdraw but I really can't fault this game at all.

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Must have for resident evil fans, although it isnt as great as speancer mansion it's still definitely worth a go, plus co-op is completely engaging.

Fighting wesker hasn't been more exciting!

"Stuck in the 00's"
1 stars"

Ok, so I haven't played it the game all that much. I am sure the story is great once you get into it, and it becomes a little more engaging…

BUT, you have to get up to that part, if it even really exists.

First you have to get past the horrendous controls, which haven't changed since RE3 (at the time they were a breakthrough for RE, but have since dated), you have to get past the fact that there is NO REAL STORY in the first 30 minutes of the game. And if RE5 is like other RE games, that's about 20% of the entire game with no story…

I got this game for cheap and I still paid too much.

Unless you are really a RE fan, I would stay away. I am one to a certain extent because I really admire some of the ground breaking stuff that has come out with the games, but this one is well below their usual par.
