1.0 out of 5 stars Camp Noob Hack Lag = Most Annoying Game Ever Made, 14 Aug. 2011
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
It gets to an inevitable point where every game is prone to either being:

a. hacked
b. suffering from lag or disconnection
c. full of people who noob
d. full of people who camp
e. any two or more of the above

The result of the five above points are quite simply that this game, for all its technical achievements, is the most annoying, pointless, frustrating game ever made.

3.0 out of 5 stars Resident Action, 15 Oct. 2009
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Lots of people have compared Resident Evil 5 to its contemporary competition (Dead Space) or immediate predecessors (Resident Evil 4) and have noted that the control system is flawed and that the game is essentially a RE4 rehash with less invention. Having recently rerun through Resident Evil on the Gamecube, itself a remake of the original on the PSone that started the franchise all those moons ago, I haven't been able to look at the latest installment in the same way since. The transition has witnessed the evil pretty much disappear and the action cranked up to the max. Resident Evil used to be about dark settings, creepy music, sparse but tough enemies and slow burning tension. The best thing about replaying the Gamecube version was the realization that there is not enough ammunition in the game to kill every monster that appears. This heightened the tension to heights the action sequences in RE5 will never reach and created real anxiety. There was a sense of tactics about the old games that meant that you had to be intelligent with where and how you used you ammo, in Resident Evil 5 you have a vast selection of heavy artility weapons and endless ammo. It makes shooting zombie after zombie after zombie, in bright settings and hardcore music fun but ... it's not the gloomy, atmospheric Resident Evil that I fell in love with. I'm not saying that the direction the franchise is going in is the wrong choice but I would welcome a return to old school Resident Evil with improvements attached. The old RE's suffered from lots of running backwards and forwards over familiar settings and some rather irritating and silly puzzles, additionally the camera angles where sometimes so bad that you couldn't actually see what you were shooting. I'd like it if the next Resident Evil installment had different game modes that incorporated all of the best elements of all of the previous titles to offer an action romp for those that just like blasting stuff and a single player atmospheric mode that appeals to those of use that prefer the old school style.
