 Disappointing RES 5

| | See all PSH569908's reviews (2)

I have been waiting nearly two years for this game to come out after playing Res 4 and Code Veronica previously. However I was dissapointed from the word go. I felt that the gameplay resembled a shoot em' up. I would have gone and bought Call of Duty instead.
The previous games involved puzzles and problem solving in order to progress and more often than not, for me anyway it took some time to figure them out. It was not just about killing zombies and bosses which this game is clearly about.
In Res 5 there isn't such a need to conserve ammo as in previous making the game easier. Theres handgun rounds and shotgun shell almost everywhere you look.
Res 5 also lacks the haunting surreal aspect for example the old castles and mansions with something waiting to jump out at you but you couldn't predict when. You had to scour the whole place for clues, especially Code Veronica.
I appreciate games evolve but I feel that it lacks any of the class of previous games. The graphics also don't help.
At one point where you have to utilise sun light and mirrors to open a door, those who have played will know what I mean, I thought the game was improving but sadly not.
New comers may enjoy it but sadly I didn't

 Good addition to the Resi series...but is it Resi?

Well - being an avid Resident Evil fanatic - I only felt a joy of a delight when I heard Resident Evil 5 would be making its way onto the Playstation3. What with Resident Evil being perhaps the second best franchise behind Metal Gear Solid (perhaps it could even top it after this installment) - I couldn't wait to play it. I didn't even bother with the demo - as usually - demo's are a pretty rough indication of games anyway.

For those of you that haven't had the pleasure of owning the Resident Evil series games from day dot - Chris Redfield returns to action - one of the original surviving members of S.T.A.R.S. from the Spencer Mansion incident all those years back. The great thing about this game, is that you can actually read the history of the RE series as you play - so this game was made for new gamers of the franchise to join in on the history of the game - as well as sticking to the routes for the old school RE fans. However - something is missing here for the old schoolers - and I'll get that in a moment. Something which made my playthrough bitterly dissappointing.

Graphically - the game is stunning. Its flawless. You can't take your eyes off the detail that has gone into this game. The graphics all over the RE series has been nothing short of phenominal - in my opinion some of the best graphics I have seen in a long time since MGS4. Lighting effects are down to a T - and the dark moments are abit eerie to say the least! The voice acting is back to its cheese grating best - a step back from RE4 where it seemed to be actually breaking the sound barrier (RE is notorious for having awful voice acting) in the franchise.

New players picking up this game, will absolutely love RE5. Its action packed, its shooting evil things and blowing up gas cylinders and killing over the top giant monsters. Plus you can blast away baddies with your mate as a co-op option - and on the PSNetwork, where people can JOIN your game! Which is a little bit cool! But do you really want other people playing the king of survival horror with you?

Die hard fans of RE will feel abit left out here. RE5, felt too discriminated to the other half of its audience. The worst thing they could have done - was base the game on a co-op module of play. Let me put this straight - RE was never co-op. There were one or two moments of AI co-op in the previous games, but enough to pass judgment, and enough for an enjoyability level - but not solely based on working together. RE5 has quickly withdrawn its cards on the RE fans around the globe. RE stamped its seal of approval on the survival horror genre - but this game feels too action packed. Infact - its purely action packed. This isn't what RE is about. Its about solving puzzles, backtracking to your goals and discovering sinister plots to the storyline.

The game itself is far too short - you spend most of your time spamming at enemies, and near enough, you will find yourself looking at a cut-scene to every new scenario - to which you'll find yourself shooting your way through another 20 people. This is repeated through 6 very short chapters. The co-op style of play in this game sucked the life out of RE. And thats the truth.

For me - the RE factor vanished in this game. It didn't feel like RE. It felt like another game completely. And although there was the same lovable characters - I felt gutted. RE5 is not better than RE4. Its not better than RE2. Its not better than RE1 - but it IS better than RE3. In my opinion, it could have really boosted the franchise in the right direction. Instead, its taken a huge step back.

If you LOVE action - you will love this game. If your a Resident Evil old schooler - you may feel a sour taste in your mouth.

 Have trouble letting go

This is not like other resident evil games in the fact that you are in Africa and some parts of the game are not as dark as others like you would expect from a resident evil game. The game play is great, the graphics are awesome. When I started to play this game I thought I was still on a cut scene but it was actual gameplay (Awesome Graphics) What makes this game great is once you complete the game you unlock various things from a new game mode to new outfits, weapons, unlimited ammo etc. The game is addictive beacuse I have completed it three times on different difficu;ties and the game is only 75% complete. You have to recover all the hiiden emblems, all the different hidden jewels throughout the game, complete it in certain times to unlock even more goodies. There is co-op mode as well which is a nice experience but resident evil is best played on your own in the dark. A must for those who like the series and enjoy in depth games.

 totally wrecked resident evil

i WAS a massive fan of the resident evil series but this game has put pay to that.
the storey line is rubbish and predictable, the gameplay is annoying as you can't move while aiming. the only thing going for it is that the graphics are good but thats not enough to save this game.
im so glad i didt buy the steelbox limited addition as it would of been a massive waste of money. DON'T BUY THIS GAME
