I always look forward to resident evil games,even though they aren't quite done in the same style as the first few. This is basicly a run around shooting zombies and monsters type game,but it mostly good fun and at least it's back to proper zombies and not just infected people.
The close attacks are well done and quite good fun,so ideal if you're short on bullets,though you get tired after several attacks and have to wait a while to get your strength back. My games partner and i did enjoy most of this game,the characters are great,the graphics impressive enough and the gameplay is addictive enough. Also there is a lot of it to do,as once you've completed one story,you go on to another and after the 3,you open up ada's story and they all come together nicely,so there's plenty to do. Now the down points that stop me giving it 5 stars.
You often have to rely on your partner to help open doors and stuff and if they take a while to get to you,it can be frustrating and you could be killed through no real fault of your own. Also some bosses are a real pain to kill,they keep coming back and sometimes it's hard to know what you're meant to be doing and if you're actually getting anywhere and you're never sure if you've actualy killed it as it keeps coming back larer on,sometimes i finished of a moster without really knowing how,so more button bashing than skill.
Also,some saves are regular and others take ages to come up,just loads of checkpoints if you're lucky,oh yeah,if you die after a checkpoint it says saving,it isn't a proper save though which is misleading,but you soon get used to what is a proper save.
One more thing that stood out as a bad thing,the way you are laying there injured and have to hope someone gets to you in time or you'll have to do some annoying stuff again. The action is mostly done by gun or close R1 button combat but occasionally,button prompts come up which might annoy some.
All that said,it's an entertaining game and some are sure to love it,but for me,it was just too frustrating too many times to be considered a 5 star game,well worth getting at a good price though.
