The game's surroundings were truly sun-drenched and remarkable, but the whole experience was more of a mixed bag. Anyone who's looking for an action game will likely enjoy Resident Evil 5 if its entirety plays out like the E3 demo did. It does have good, RE4-style controls, but those may feel cumbersome to first-person shooter veterans. Your traveling companion has respectable AI, though her presence detracts from the purity of a "survival horror" experience even more. By no means is it an awful title - on the contrary, it's coming together nicely - but it just doesn't give off that Resident Evil vibe anymore. Didn't Lost Planet already fill this role?
