Welcome to the jungle, wev'e got fun and games
on 15 March 2009
CONTAINS A BIG SPOILER (IT'S MARKED)
This game is now my fave on the ps3, beating both resistances and bio-shock, all of which i loved. I only have 2 chapters left to complete and i can say that i have thourghly enjoyed the game. Wor chris is as usual great, with sheva being a great partner, but not quite jill. I'm actually suprised that it is an 18, because i can't see anything different (violence wise) to resident evil 4, but hey, maybe im missing something...
I'll start with the bad points of the game first, then tell the good one's.
The bad one's-
.it may take a while to relise that sheva also needs ammo...
.the controls need some getting used to.
.wesker, a.p.u, dosen't feature as often as he should
.bagheads are much slower, less powerful and more irratating than in 4
.no merchant (everyone loved that guy!)
.2 bosses are nearly carbon copies of re4
.some areas are similar
The good ones-
.new melee combat
.unlike ashley, sheva is actually able to defend herself and is actually of use
.involving bosses including wesker (very hard) and his new aprentice, an old friend of chris's (from re1, closer to guessing yet?)
.Longer than re4
.bagheads are clumsy, so easier to kill
.Axeman is really cool, and should feature more
.great cut scene's
.No sherry birkin
.because sheva can save you and take care of herself, you take care of her
.heart pounding moments
.hours of gameplay
.allround quality, with cool trophies and lots of replay value
All those who have the gamecube remake, zero, outbreak, 4 and code veronica may well be able to see similarities and may say that its a combination of them, but its one of those games that keeps you hooked. ok now come's the MAJOR SPOILER. Jill is not dead, and she is in fact a very hard boss, but she aint a zombie, shes just normal but under weskers control. so once you free her, there's quite a touching scene between her and chris (true love? of course!)
I can't recomend this game highly enough, especially this edition, with a bonus dvd (haven't watched it yet, to busy with the game!!!!) but it's a great package. and don't get too critical of chris's new biceps, everybody likes to keep fit!
Get it and love it, even hardcore fans such as myself can't be disapointed, so BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!
