No longer do you retrace your paths going back and forth to different rooms looking for puzzle objects. No longer are you walking down creepy dark carriage ways or corridors. No longer are you shooting zombies, BUT its still a fairly good game.
Resident evil 5 is not like a cross between resident evil 4 and devil may cry. Rather than a constant area in which you roam, you not go through different chapters (levels). The zombies are no more 'zombie like' but similiar to junkies chasing you for money. saying this though, the game itself is still rather fun, with amazing grahics and a great storyline. Even if it does seem unscary and predictable at times. Buy it, you might like, but you will need to buy it if you want to see the end of a long running and twisting resident evil storyline.
