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

Thatguy-3101903d ago

Lol you aint missing much dude. Guess ppl are going to talk it up since its a ps plus freebie now.

Temporary1903d ago

I beat 5...didnt like it, but i forced myself through it. It was so bad i didnt even CONSIDER playing 6.

cpayne931903d ago

Its still a fun co op game from what I hear, even if the game itself isn't as good as 4.

DivineAssault 1903d 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

Anon19741903d 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.

FunAndGun1903d ago

It is a good action game, just not a good RE game.

Hellsvacancy1902d ago (Edited 1902d 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 wonder they turn all the classics to P.O.S like game you appeal the mass casuals like you.

DarkBlood1903d 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

schlanz1902d ago

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.

Eyeco1902d 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.

calis1902d ago

RE5 has been on EU for awhile now for the Plus members.

It's a good update to dust off the Move.

himdeel1903d 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.

Vanfernal1903d 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.

schlanz1902d 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.

bryam19821903d ago

First to say i lov ps plus

ziggurcat1903d 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.

dazreah1903d ago

Hmmm any news on what the EU will get as RE5 has been free in the UK for about a month.

Drakesfortune1903d ago

EU is getting cysis 2, ratchet and clank all for one and cubix hd on the 7th

dazreah1903d ago

Cheers for the info and awesome love to give R&C a go.
