A nice attempt at duplicating the fourth game,
This review is from: Resident Evil 5 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Fans of the series will know that the 4th game was the turning point in the Resident Evil franchise. So I was pleased to see that RE 5 was following the same stylus as its predecessor, here are a few points that a first time buyer should take into account:
~ An excellent storyline with plenty of old and new faces to fall in love with.
~ Now you have a partner who actually fights along with you and you can even build up levels of trust with her. Or if you prefer not to use an AI you can always complete the game with a friend as your partner with a second controller.
~ The graphics are breathtaking and incredibly well done particularly in the action sequences with the good ol quick time events.
~ The gameplay itself is fun with interesting puzzles and enemies to fight your way through. New experiences are aplanty in this game.
~ The enemies can be very tough, especially boss battles.
~ The storage space is EXTREMELY limited, therefore making storage incredibly difficult.
~ Having an NPC character can make the game problamatic at times as she doesn't read your mind, hence she might do something very stupid...
~ Whether you're a first time 360 player or a pro it doesn't matter: the controls take a while to completely master
Despite certain controversy when this game was first announced it has been an enjoyable experience, enough to get me motivated into completing it a second time - check out the unlockable sections! This game is definitely worth purchasing. Have fun zombie killers! ;)
