Summary: The graphics were beautiful, the game play was easy to slip into, and the weapon mods are always welome. HOWEVER, the plot is a continuation of pure stupidity and a blight on a series that started off as classic survival horror/analogy to Big Business v. the Consumer. I'll give it the upside of having the 'rescue' option so you don't die straight off (most of the time) and I'll admit that it's a good way to spend a couple of days--if you waited long enough to get it for...
Frustrating Dated Controls Not Suited For Gameplay Style

Summary: Let me preface this by saying I've played just about every Resident Evil / Biohazard game, including multiple ports and remakes on various consoles, and even the Famicom predecessor Sweet Home. I was even a contributor to a guide book for Code Veronica, and have a very good minimum-ammo speedrun for several games. I'm quite familiar with Resident Evil's bloodline and style, and have excelled in them.
Summary: Let me start by saying I am a huge fan of the resident evil series. I played through all the previous titles for ps1 and ps2 and loved them. especially re3: nemesis and re2. Now moving onto this game. I have to say I was very excited about this game since it was now on the ps3 platform and would make use of the amazing graphics ps3 has to offer. And boy it does! The controls are very simple and the character responds well. But that's where it ends!
Summary: You are surrounded by bloodthirsty zombies and their annoying psycho dogs. They are to your right. They are to your left. They are, well, everywhere. You aim, and.............. "Honey. Can you come help me? I need ammo.......... I need saving............. I need............." Clunky game, made clunkier by your ball and chain. She looks good, but I wish I had left her in the car. Not sure how many more chapters I can take.
Summary: This game was very disappointing!!!! I played the crap out of the Resident Evil 4 and loved the game. The 4th one was scary and a very engrossing single player. NOT THIS ONE!!! Resident Evil 5 is primarily a Co-op experience. To really have some sort of fun is to have a friend to play with online or offline. Though, when you play the game with some one its just not satisfying.
Summary: This is not Resident Evil. This is a third-person action shooter. Does it follow in the steps of the Resident Evil storyline? Barely. This game is basically about this group of people harnessing a new virus similar to the one in RE4, and Chris along with his new partner are chosen to stop them. This is about how deep the story gets.
