Yes! I did not get to play RE5 while deployed and was going to buy. Good thing I didn't.

I beat 5...didnt like it, but i forced myself through it. It was so bad i didnt even CONSIDER playing 6.
cpayne93  +   630d ago
Its still a fun co op game from what I hear, even if the game itself isn't as good as 4.
DivineAssault  +   630d ago
It wasnt too bad.. Just real arcady.. The series went to sh*t.. little to no puzzles, no incentives to backtrack & unlock doors you couldnt access early on, & virtually infinite ammo by smashing boxes.. U can just run around blasting ppl with whatever u want without consequence of losing precious ammo.. Health is too abundant too

I beat it 2x w my cousins & it was fun but the essence of what made RE so great has diminished long ago

I loved RE5. I thought it was a fantastic game that absolutely nailed the co-op when playing split screen. Sure it wasn't a great Resident Evil game, but it was a fantastic action title with Resident Evil flare. If I didn't have so many games currently in my backlog, I'd dive right back into this game to give it another play thru. An absolute blast.

It is a good action game, just not a good RE game.
Hellsvacancy  +   630d ago
I downloaded it, I was going to play the dlc, but my Res5 game save was on my old dead PS3, id need to play through most of the game again before it unlocked

Screw that, I deleted it, one of the worst games ive played this gen, a buddy of mine said the mansion dlc wasnt actually that bad, so i thought as its free i might aswel give it ago

Its not free for me because i have to battle through sheer boredom to get there

darkride66 the game was crap and its the worst in the series...leon campaign from RE6 which is a terrible game OWN the whole whole RE5 game

your taste for gaming are simply horrible...no wonder they turn all the classics to P.O.S like game you mention....to appeal the mass casuals like you.
DarkBlood  +   630d ago
some assumption to make as a whole there @Laiyoung but no matter your just stating an opinion which isnt facts as you would love to believe
Nawert  +   629d ago
Thank you ger2396.

Best way to play is online co-op with a friend, and use a Move controller. Seriously, most fun I've ever had with a Resident Evil game. I don't care what anyone else says; if they haven't played it this way then they don't know what they are missing.
Eyeco  +   630d ago
It's a fun game with a friend if you ignore the fact that it's an RE game, certain aspects have aged rather poorly tho controls/inventory system especially can be a pain.
calis  +   630d ago
RE5 has been on EU for awhile now for the Plus members.
Vanfernal  +   630d ago
It's a good update to dust off the Move.
himdeel  +   630d ago
This game is amazing with the Move! I couldn't play it with the standard controller afterwards. It just feels so good with the device.
Vanfernal  +   630d ago
I hear you. Playing RE5 online with the Move and sniping everything with the magnum while my buddy is complaining that I don't let him kill anything is hilarious. It actually made the game much more fun.
schlanz  +   630d ago
Glad some others agree; solo with standard controller is like an 7 or 8/10, online co-op with move is like a 9.5/10.
bryam1982  +   630d ago
First to say i lov ps plus
ziggurcat  +   630d ago
maybe i'll actually try RE5 again since it's (technically) free...

and damn it, valve... you've forced me into buying a move controller after all this time.
dazreah  +   630d ago
Hmmm any news on what the EU will get as RE5 has been free in the UK for about a month.
Drakesfortune  +   630d ago
EU is getting cysis 2, ratchet and clank all for one and cubix hd on the 7th
dazreah  +   630d ago
Cheers for the info and awesome love to give R&C a go.
sdozzo  +   630d ago
With Portal 2 can we access user created stuff?
SolidDuck  +   630d ago
I though RE5 was a fun co op game, and a better overall game than 6. But weak for a resident evil game.
Phoenix76  +   630d ago
Im hoping that the UK also gets another slice of cake in the form of Portal 2 in Motion
Donnywho  +   630d ago
I actually got RE5 Gold free from Gamestop. I ordered Portal 2 used and they sent me RE5 Gold. After they apologized they instructed me to wait for Portal 2 to be delivered and then to discard the unwanted merchandise once I had confirmed the correct order had been shipped.
Omnislash  +   630d ago
Nice!! I had missed out on some of the DLC campaigns and now I'll get to play them!
Pillsbury1  +   630d ago
Yes! I was jealous of EU for getting it now we get it too! I hope we also get red dead redemption. I also want my ps vita games!!!
sdplisken  +   630d ago
sweet! i rented this game back when it came out
always wanted to try to finish the platinum on it
TheDivine  +   630d ago
Damn quit giving me games i already own. They should give a choice between a couple. Oh well. Its a damn good game despite what people say. Only things i dislike are the enemies with guns and constant knockdowns. Gets frustrating on later levels. Otherwise the game is great and is RE despite people saying its a good game just not RE. I still need to finish the dlc episodes.
Silly gameAr  +   630d ago
Portal 2@ that price = steal.
dboyman  +   629d ago
Alright Sony now give s the other EU PS plus free stuff now, like Red Dead redemption, crysis 2, etc...
ZoyosJD  +   629d ago
I have thoroughly enjoyed many of the games that Sony's Playstation Plus subscription program has brought to my Playstation 3 console.

It has been a great value, so much so that I've had to replace my hard drive, as it was becoing the limiting factor of the value I could get out of the Playstation Plus program.

If anyone in the gaming civilization of Sony's Playstation 3 doesn't have a Playstation Plus subscription, I highly recommend it.
