Capcom's Resident Evil 5 looks to improve on the previous version in every way, making this a killer survival horror game to look out for on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. HD available at source. SD embedded.
either way. Does anyone else feel like they were hoping that RE5 would be more like the original games? More survival horror, less gunplay? I think games like Siren/Silent Hill(which also has a siren in it) are taking that gameplay and are the only ones really moving forward with th e real survivor horror series. Anyone play Obscure? Re5. The sound is pretty impressive. Sounds like it has some sort of audio occlusion. They sound like they are inside. Then she sounds like shes outside, when she says "take this"
Both versions have been shown, both versions we're playable at E3. MS even showed gameplay in their Keynote.
I really think everyone is overhyping Left 4 Dead and forgetting that Resident Evil 4 did win GOTY at its time. Resident Evil 5 looks to take it up a notch especially with the AI being smarter. Anyone who has played RE4 on its hardest mode will tell u just how hard that mode was especially when u had to try an gaurd that girl from getting killed by the enemies. I think this game is really getting overlooked and easilly will be one of the top canidates for GOTY 2009. As for the ps3 version being shown, I think at e3, they had the 360 version up and running aswell at the MS press confress. I cant wait for this game, it is going to be tons of fun and scary as hell.
I cannot wait for this game. Definite pickup for me.
How come the bullets can kill the zumbies but CAN'T tear their clothes when they are hit? Don't you guys think that this is extremely stupid, I mean u can see blood coming out but no holes or what so ever in their clothes!!!
The lighting looks phenomenal. The girl's character model is pedestrian. The zombie animations after they get shot still need work especially the two he kills going up the stairs. The camera still needs a little work. The textures are flat.
the 360 version is turning out quit well, http://www.gamersyde.com/st...
Even Left 4 dead looks more like the original resident evil than this. Good god, the resident evil series and games have gone from good and scary to worse and enjoable but now with this coming out it's just pure poo and embaressing... Take a good look at it and compare it's quality to other games coming out. Zombies are no longer zombies, the T-Virus is just an virus that jumpstars dead bodies and mutates flesh, It dosn't make bodies melt in to the ground and it has no connection to.. what are those? flying demons??? Graphics are poor and outdated and nothing like the gameplay trailer shown a year ago. In that trailer the shadows actually were DARK, now all shadows are bright and extremely dull. In my eyes they have spaced out too much and need to go back to resident evils original scary/action design. Keep it clean and simple but none the least scary!
looks good on the ps3
I've seen it looks at least this good on the 360 also in the MS show @ E3
Liking it a lot. Like CViper said, I love the sound in this game more than everything, very immersive. There are obviously many bugs to be worked out (look at the guy flying UP the stairs lol). But I'm looking forward to getting this game on my PS3 next year :D
Yes, that seems to be a reoccurring problem, they react wildly when you shout them during their animation (getting up). No doubt this will all get ironed out, they still have 6 month development time.
hope they change the animation when the crazy guys die `coz they look the same as re4 and aren`t that good to be honest,besises that the game is looking awesome.
game is really looking awesome but the ai is really slow
But after those i felt it kind of fell off. It lost its scare tactics roots and got into a more action-based approach. Whil many say RE4 was the best one, i'd have to partially disagree. Gameplay wise it was good because it just worked well. But it lost the fear that RE1 and RE2 imposed. The idea of not being prepared enough, or think jumping out and closing you in. idk maybe it is just me.
I have to agree with you 100%. RE1 and 2 was scary as hell. RE3 wasn't that good imo and while RE4 had a very good gameplay (as you said yourself) it lacked alot in the scary department. Unfortunately, RE5 seems to go down the same road as RE4.
I liked RE4, but I didn't think it was even on the same level as RE2 (mainly because they are just different games and the overwhelming fact that there weren't any eff'n real zombies in RE4). I loved RE when it was released, then RE2 game out and was everything RE was, but with better graphics, less cheesy voice acting, and an awesome story. But I'm still picking up RE5 because I love resident evil and there is co-op play, although I'm still super disappointed they are going with the parasitic take over zombies instead of t or g virus zombies. But that's just one man's opinion.
I didnt like 3 because the nemisis guy was actually just like the guy you fight in re2. You could play it 4 times(alternating 2 times as Leon and 2 as clair) and on the 3rd time(2nd as leon for me) this big scary guy would chase you till you wasted him, and come back later, like nemisis. Also there is a different ending and weird boss. so I never finished re3, cause I thought it ripped off re2. I had code veronica, that was good. Never played 4, sold ps2 before it came out for it. I think this will be an awesome game, I think this video was just on really easy mode.
the part where you shoot a guys head off only to have to start shooting the parasite that came out is getting reeeeeeal old. still will buy it but lets get back to a zombies and......a brand new storyline (with new characters) for #6?
Looks very nice, I only wish they had some kind of bullet holes when you shoot the zombies.
Cant wait till this comes out. Was really hoping Left 4 Dead would come to ps3, i dont think ps3 has any Zombie games yet almost 2 years in its life cycle. Edit Below: For some reason Siren just doesn't seem like a zombie game to me its kind of boring IMO. Im talkin more of dead rising and left 4 dead which both are not on ps3.We have to wait till 2009 just to get a good zombie game.
Try out Siren. Its getting pretty good reviews.
i loved re4 and 5 is looking good so i will more than likely pick it up. @6i dont see how anyone liked deadrising i hate that game but that just my opinion
left for dead is coming to ps3 so don't worry you won't miss out.
What happened to all the female villagers in the game?
Not too excited about RE5, I would like to play it myself though, instead of watching some doofus at the controls. How about the dialogue? Man is it dog****. "This is HQ the helicopter's been downed." The way the line was delivered, is just horrible...
Ah SH!T I'm outta control!! I love it haha -Edit- @SilentShank They're bringing back the voice actors from the first game maybe? lol I wonder if they're going to throw in "jill sandwich" just for kicks
flaws I see, enemy AI may react too slow on occasions, sheva standing a foot away from her target (a flesh eating zombie), having to do the assistance jump movement to get her down instead of up, controls seem confusing, and shooting a zombie mid animation. Besides that, this seems like a solid game, as long as online co-op has no problems.
I loved RE:1,2 and 4 and I'll prepare to be burned but my fav has to go to RE:Code Veronica, it was an awesome game imo.
Yes Code Veronica was really good, still have that for my dreamcast. RE5 is looking really good as well, can't wait to play it.
please bring this to the wii
haha I think ur the only wii fan here.
After seeing that, theres no way it's going to Wii. The RE4 vs RE5 comparison video was biased to favor the Wii.
I dont know about anyone els but doesnt the death animations look kind of flunky? Almost like they where in RE4? Imo, wouldnt it make sense to put in rag dolls for the death animations? Since rag dolls are pretty much the trend nowadays and i think it would look better.
Am I the only one that thinks the aiming control seems to be a pain???? Looks like it's annoying to aim comfortably... I hope you can increase the sensitivity.
Its not, it's basically just the way you aim in RE4 (from the looks of it) and there were no problems there.
That's my point... The little bit of gameplay I tried once on RE4 was on PC and the aiming wasn't that great.
Whoooop has a point. The aiming in RE4 wasn't that fluent. Yes, it worked quite well, but it took getting used to. It could be done better. I'm sure they'll tweak it.
Looks very average and generic. Halo wars and white knight story will own this game to pieces
the aiming is my major concern with this game. it is playable but i know a lot of game overs will be the result of not being able to aim quick enough. please bring this to the wii for aiming perfection
A Wii port would take a while, as they'd have to absolutley destroy the graphics. I can't see that happening until a HD Wii exists.
Good looking game, stupid control and gameplay scheme. Just look at how stiff the animation is on the characters. The enemies movement is very alive, and show good fluidity. But the main characters walk around like they got a corn stalk up their butts. I cant believe they didnt push the envelope and put in better controls. This game also doesn't look as scary as the past resident evils. I dont know, Im very unimpressed.
...that is, he helps the other character to jump across to another building for nothing but to set up a scene so he can use a sniper rifle. That entire sequence looks great but its pointless. I hope the final game is not so scripted (but it will be). That is, the player has the choice of going the path as seen in the video or maybe both characters could head down to the bottom floor and shoot out the door. I loved RE4 but am hoping RE5 won't be as scripted and a bit more sandbox.
I noticed a prompt to "Hook" enemies when there's one group on a staircase. I wonder if that's always an option or if it's a counter to lunges. Either way, it could definitely add nicely to the gameplay. I always hated only having the knife and kick prompts when enemies are stunned.
it's the exact same thing as 4, just with better graphics and coop.they still even have a health bar.there is no new gameplay.
the game looks so easy... it's like a slow paced action game. capcom should bring back some elements from the firsts RE games (1,2,3).
Code Veronica was the best
i would like this trailer on PSN in HD, k'thnx P.S. Sheva is still the hotness :P
PS3 version definately looks better. 360 version looks washed out probably due to compression.
You must be thinking of the compression on the PS3rd-place version needed to fit all the texture maps into the limited ram.
hear, watch the vid, or take a 720p version. (360 version) edit- better link right hear. http://www.gamersyde.com/le... and this one 2 http://www.gamersyde.com/st...
Both versions look the same
Don't want to rock the boat or anyhting but i was watching the 360 footage of this on live and it seems to look a bit cleaner with better lighting... could just be the vid though.
i think any of the trailers look better downloaded off of live or psn. the KZ trailers (from psn) looks so much better than what they look like elsewhere.
Streaming video tends to get compressed pretty heavily, too.
This seems to be a really good action game. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be much of a horror title (just like RE4).
that's what i think too. i wish they'd get back to the "horror/suspense of RE 1,2.
Looks almost as good as the Xbox 360 version. This may be the first game I buy for both systems.
This game looks like it's going to be wicked fun.
one of my biggest gripes about RE games.
this game is like Resident Evil 4 with better graphic. Even the movement of the enemy are the same, and even the sound!
Anybody else not thrilled with the RE4 Aiming system as I am, especially after getting used to games like Gears of War and Uncharted? Yeah, it will make it more "action packed" than scary. But looking at this trailer, they've already passed that line. They might as well just implement the new aiming system of today's generation. Of course, that's just me though. Feel free to disagree.
