5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly a good game, 24 Oct. 2009
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Resident Evil 5 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I was surprised with this game. I actually hadnt wanted to play it because i was never a big fan of the resident evil games and it came with my new xbox console. My brother decided to put it into the machine and i watched him, thinking it wouldnt be that good. It turned out to have surprisingly good graphics with a nice flow to the movement of the game. However, this is not what got my stuck to it like glue.

Me and my brother made a bet that I couldnt get through the entire game on the hardcore difficulty first off without any weapon upgrades and such and this is how i got into the game.
It was atcually really challenging to do without playing the game once over. But i did manage it.....just to point out.
But this game is quite challenging if you do it that way which may interest some hardcore gamers not to mention the story line is quite in depth.
But also I think it would help if you played some resident evil game prior to this one as the story for me was a bit confusing at some points as i didnt know who these people were but the game does offer an insight into the history of resident evil which you unlock in the bonus library.
The movement of the charactes can feel a bit chunky but all in all its very good, the graphics are impecible and again it is very challenging if you play it on the second to last difficulty setting (you can only unlock the hardest after completing the game on hardcore, then you unlock professional.) But it does have an easy difficulty which casual gamers may enjoy.
The fact that the second character in the game is computer controlled did frustrate me a little bit as she never really did help you to the effect that you wanted her too. While doing it on professional difficulty she didnt really help at all but I suppose thats why its called professional difficulty, it makes it harder for you.
All in all an awesome game that can challenge gamers but not so much it leaves them annoyed at the game. Very happy gaming.

Not as atmosperic as RE4 but i still think its one of the best on the XBox.Pick up RE4 on Ps2,Gamecube or Wii because its the same gameplay,brilliant graphics and even more awesome,believe it or not!!

I hadn't looked forward to it since 4 as I prefer,and still do,the fixed camera games,I like 4 but it's just not as atmospheric as the Gamecube remake and Zero,I had this for Christmas and never really bothered with it,I played the demo and thought it was okay,I recently put it on and actually found it really good,I like replaying the levels to find all the items and get more money for upgrades,had to drop my Xbox to 720p though as there was awful screen tearing at 1080i and 1080p,pleasantly surprised.
