dont agree. I thought the gameplay was really sluggish. It felt as if i were a tank. Aiming is a little weird. And overall i don't see much of an improvement from RE4. The animations are pretty poor considering a game like this and the graphical details outside of the character models aren't so great. I thought the co op was cool, only for a bit though, i can't see myself comming back to it. Well the game aint gold so there is still time to improve.

I finally got around to playing the X360 demo this morning, and I was truely disappointed.

It felts so clunky and sluggish. You have to stand still to shoot, then move to somewhere else, the stand to shoot again.

The aiming is really bad as well, with the slightest move of the analogue stick moving the red laser sight miles from where you want it.

The inventory panel again is really clunky, and basicly crap.

With games like Gears of War, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune, and even Dark Sector and Lost Planet that play from a 3rd Perspective View and play a whole lot better than RE5, I think Capcom need to start worrying. This could be a HUGE disappointment.

They must not have played anything near the demo I screamed at for hours on end.

Its from Empire, so i will take this with a grain of salt.

Still i didn't like the demo at all, and at present i'm giving this one a miss and will probably pick up Halo Wars or Sega Mega Drive Ultimate collection instead.

Edit - Who ever disagreed please state that is it because you think Empire reviews are reliable or you don't like the fact that i didn't like the demo?

But if it's higher than a 9.8, I'm going to cry foul.

EDIT: 10/10 (5-stars)?

Better than Killzone 2 confirmed. /sarcasm

I seriously wonder how some websites can call themselves reviewers. It's true everyone has their own opinion but when you say MGS4 and Wii Music is tied *cough 1UP* then there is something wrong. I also played the R5 demo and I seriously think it's not better than Killzone 2 but whatever, it's their opinion.

yet KZ2 only get 4/5. oh oh.

This game is a few months off release yet so how the hell are they reviewing it?

I know the game is probably like 98% complete with just some fine tuning and polishing being done here and there, but this review is so early I question what it is based on?

Its only 42 days away. Not that I agree with them lol.
