The U.S. Official Playstation Magazine reviewed Resident Evil 5 and is avaliable in the March issue. Here are some review scans.
This will be another gta 4, it will get perfect scores because of the hype then gamers will say it's overrated and u will see tons of used copies at gamestop of gamers trading it in, I played the demo. It's overrated garbage
I was going to get it but after seeing how slow it was im not going to bother i'll stick to L4D
I agree whole heartedly.
I have yet to play the demo but right now I am half and half. I know some love this series but I think it's gotten kind of stale. I am hoping it breathes new life into the genre...
Agreed 100%. Still getting it though LOL
stop hating on Gametrailers 2009 game of the year..... ;)
"stop hating on Gametrailers 2009 game of the year..... ;) " ↑↑ THIS ↑↑
u mean the game thatz coming out in more then one console will sell more then the one coming out in only one? thatz and interesting theory you have there, ill get my team to investigate this and ill get back to you right away,
I'm getting it and thought the demo was great (on 360).
"And yet it will still sell more then KZ2" If it does, it's because the series has already established a fanbase that isn't based on graphics, a plot worth mentioning and characters fans actually care about. A lot of my friends haven't played many of the RE games, if any, and yet they still want RE5. I think this is kind of sad because if you're not a real fan of the series, why bother playing 5? Because it looks good? You won't have any special attachment to the characters or much knowledge of what's going on. You'll be oblivious to any references made to past games. RE4 was a huge breakthrough for the series, and game of the year might I add. RE5 might be a little more of the same for some people, but it's enough for me, so long as it delivers on the plot. And from what I've seen, it more than likely will. I have my gripes about the demo, but none of them are game breakers for me.
I loved 4 and this looks to take a lot from that... Apart from atmosphere it looks to play the same. I am excited. Co-op looks fun too.
Completely agree. If this didn't have "Resident Evil" in the title, it would change everything. Based on the demo, Dead Space is still the best horror game of this gen. Never thought I'd see the day where I'd say EA had the best game of any genre.
Dead Space runs out of ideas fast. I got bored about 2/3rds through the game, when I was just doing the same old freeze, chop limbs drill. It's really well put together, but if 2/3rds in, the only new idea you come up with, is zombies which are fast, then I just can't be bothered.
RE4 was an absolute masterpiece. Why suddenly have so many turned on RE5 before it's even launched. Wait till the game hits the shelves and if it sucks, by all means take to the forums. In the meantime I'll be reserving judgement until I actually play the game through.
...the game looks great. I just really wish the controls were better. They updated everything else, and left the controls back in 2005. Unfortunately, the only thing the demo sold me on, is not buying.
Heard it plays and looks best on Ps3,not surprised though considering the Ps3 has actual hardware to support Hi-res textures and advanced A.I.
for real? odd..because the 360 demo looked better on the comparisons... now i'm confused :s
^ to both of you really cuz it looked identical to me. Aww I love you guys...can't be happy ever.
Earwax Reported, Bassturd, agree 100%.
yea...the games look EXACTLY the same in graphical comparisons. Its exactly the same game, the only difference is the controller its played on. anyone telling you different is a piece of sh*t and is lying. leave this one alone fany's we all know where its headed.
lol the haters, yess everybody sold their copies of GTAIV, that's why GTAIV remains in the top 5 of the most played games online...yeah nobody is playing GTAIV, right... RE5 is crazy and if the game is the same as RE4, well we have a winner, can't wait.
It seems painfully obvious it's sour grapes. GTA IV was/is excellent and by far the best sandbox game I've played (I liked it better than San Andreas). Saints Row 2 is also good from a fun perspective but as far as realistic gritty story GTA IV owns. The DLC looks to be equally as interesting, like a "Sons of Anarchy" type of story which am I totally excited about. All the people that I game with on 360 still have it and are keeping it to enjoy the DLC. Anyway, on-topic.. I am really struggling with the controls on RE5. I never had an issue in the past with the RE games but it seems the gameplay no longer works as well with stationary shooting. They need to add an alt controller scheme for more "run and gun" type play. It might not be traditional RE controls but the game is evolving to the point where they need it. I am a sucker for zombie games so I will more than likely still buy it.
I'm sure the used GTAIV's at gamestop have nothing to do with the fact that it sold 5 million copies.
Used games do not count as sold games - only to the stores like gamestop. Its first time buys that count. But you are still young and only know how to troll....don't sweat it - when you grow up you will start to learn these things.
goty contender 2009
Yep,definitely looks best on Ps3,just looked at the official Screenshots and the amount of low-res textures in the 360 version is just unacceptable. To N4PS3G or whatever you call yourself on the Internet,the Ps3 Demo is out next week,therefore there can't exist a Demo comparison.Sharpen up.
"just looked at the official Screenshots" What does that even mean rofl. Official? XD Guys.. I think every other screenshot has been fake. Resort to this man for all official news, screenshots and videos.
...Well maybe...you know...'official' means sent out by Capcom/Sony/MS? Just a thought
Seriously, what the heck is wrong with you? You've had absolutely nothing to back up any of your claims, and are making more assumptions and guesses, giving flat out erroneous responses than anyone I've seen. Here's the demo comparison - http://www.the-horror.com/i... Look for yourself, and actually look, instead of just blindly claiming "PS3 - power of the blu-ray". A lot of it is subjective, but stating that the "Ps3 version has higher-res textures,better model characters and environments,and a much more dynamic A.I." is a lie and you know it. Are you paid to spread FUD and general disease, or are you stupid? I'm going for the latter.
Hay everyone please get rid of "Return Of The Bad Guy" hes the reason people think of gaming as a childish past time with no value whatsoever. Why because as soon as they see/hear people like this any and all respect for the gaming community is lost. debubble and deface him. I could care less if It happens to me as well I just want trolls like this gone.
@ kwyjibo. That comparison you're using, those are two different builds of the games. They both look pretty damn incredible in my books but we found out later that the code they used on the demo was farther along on the 360 version. I guess we'll have to wait till the game is actually released. Not that it'll matter. It's always if a texture is slightly blurred if you pause the game and the lighting in the room is just so and look with a magnifying glass up in the corner on the third shadow on the right on the PS3 version suddenly the web lights up with "360 version superior" articles, ignoring the other 20 multiconsole games released that month that were identical or where the PS3 version was the better version. Actually, it doesn't even matter to me in the end. History has shown I can't trust my 360 hardware. I play all my multiconsole games on my PS3 simply because I don't want to risk another rrod. I remember people acted like the Orange Box was unplayable on the PS3 when in truth, that game freakn rocked. Yeah there were some framerate issues towards the end but it didn't hamper my enjoyment of the game in the slightest, and I didn't have to worry "I've been playing for 40 minutes now. Should I turn off my console and let it cool?"
All screenshots that are released of a game that is not out yet is an official screenshot.
Unlucky bots, The PS3 gets the better version... HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH AHAHAHAA!
errrr yh right
Shouldn't you be spreading your "wisdom" over at Gamesradar? Since we are errr owned by them? Pretty please? (points to the door)
I have to try the demo first but I'm thinking of actually buying this one. From all the reviews so far, it seems pretty good. I don't like the way they went after RE3 tho... I really miss the days of Resident Evil 2 ;___; that game was epic and I really hope for atleast a remake of that game.
I loved the demo, and I'm most likely going to purchase the game. It's awesome!
the game imo is far from a 10/10. IMO it felt more like 9.2 which was my user review of the game.
I played the demo yesterday at my friends house and I thought it was good. I dont know what the hate is all about but I guess people are entitled to their own opinion. The only thing I didnt like about the game is how clunky it feels. Like others have said in the past, it feels like your controlling a block of metal. But other than that, it's a pretty good game based off of what I had played yesterday.
Most of the hate comes from the fact that RE has taken a huge step away from survival-action and into the plain action game category, it might be stressful but it doesn't look very scary to be honest. Also, a lot of people played dead space and were very impressed, myself included, and they(we) are somewhat annoyed by the fact that RE still forces us to stand still like morons when shooting. Whatever scares and stress RE5 produces comes from bad and outdated controls, not because the situation is actually tense. It's easy to produce a somewhat scary and very stressful game if it has bad controls, it's another thing to give you freedom of movement, powerful weapons and great controls and still manage to scare the crap out of you.
Milo you are the man! "Most of the hate comes from the fact that RE has taken a huge step away from survival-action and into the plain action game category, it might be stressful but it doesn't look very scary to be honest." I could of used your opinion in the forums earlier. I feel %100 the same way and I know many others do as well. This is NOT the survival horror game it once was and is now more of a TPS action game with controls that do not work well with it. Those might as well be Locusts coming at you instead of zombies. They just need a Killswitch style cover system and its Gears of Evil. +bub
"...and they(we) are somewhat annoyed by the fact that RE still forces us to stand still like morons when shooting" Uh...if you played the demo you would have seen the option for the controls that let you walk while shooting. It's in there. Dev even mentioned it saying, "there is a control scheme like Gears that lets you shoot while walking". Edit: Many seem to be complaining about the game because of the lack of this feature but it's definitely in there.
What's that? http://www.consolemonster.c...
I agree it will be overhyped like many other games and my not live up to the hype. I loved resident evil 4 and after playing the demo for re5 on xbox live I am afraid they kept the game a little to similar to re4 a little too much. I dont mind it but I can se why alot of new faces to the series mostly xbox die hards who never owned a playstation might not like the control system and might not like the fact that u cant move and shoot at the same time. I think they did a great job with co op but will the ame deliver enough to live up to the hype? I think it will be a great game but I think it might not live up to alot of new people to the series.
Ehh... the whole stand and shoot controls were on Dead Rising so it's not exactly new to the console. I played the demo and discovered either the game is too hard or I suck at the game... it's probably the second choice, although I had fun sucking it up.
This is looking like it will be a great game. Still not sure if I will purchase it or just rent it from gamefly.
Says the guy with the RE4 pic.
well the guy with a cat face in his avatar says he agrees. Game looks good. Downloading the japanese demo now from PSN (don't care to wait till tomorrow for it on US store). Judge for myself how "bad" the controls are. RE controls never bothered me. Even when the camera was static it seemed everyone complained about the controls. Are people really that deficient? I have a feeling the "bad" controls for RE5 are being blown way out of proportion as well.
^ and I was pretty much right. Controls are different but completely fine. Now what my concern was was the AI teammate. Since I'll have no one to play with me unless I play online. And my concern is right. Sheva or whatever her name is...she is f*cking horrendously terrible. You have to babysit her nonstop and then there are many times that you gotta boost her somewhere where she goes off ALONE. Wtf. AI alone, getting killed. Really great. At least make her able to take tons of damage or something since she is so stupid. Instead she stands there and dies. Didn't get 2 minutes into the demo on either level before she was already dead. Oh well. Thanks for ruining the game by trying to jump on the COOP bandwagon Capcom. Guess I'll stick with Killzone 2 and Street Fighter 4 to purchase and just rent this one.
This is a must buy for me. Although no right analog aiming will feel weird, it still has excellent graphics, a solid frame rate, and of course the usual mind bending never ending go-on forever super insane twisted stupid good corny excellent weird dumb mind blowing story of Resident Evils. :)
Damn the controlls in RE5. Maybe I'll get used to them after playing it for a while, but damn those controlls.
Controls suck after playing Dead Space, IMHO. I am also curious as to why some games get passes in reviews for being more of the same, but others are crucified for it.
Cool game. I will buy this.
Your a loser just like the PS3
It's probably the 5GB install that makes the Ps3 version look and play better than the 360 version,going to have to wait for word from Capcom though to verify if the install is specifically why the Ps3 version has higher-res textures,better model characters and environments,and a much more dynamic A.I.
RE4 with HD graphics. poor facial animations, You cant run or walk while firing. add a laggy online co-op option and tons of unintelligent enemies that are nothing but foder for you guns, that when killed melt into the ground instead of staying dead like Gears or resistance... this is what they call next gen. better graphics. no thank, RE5 would have been technically impressive as a xbox ps2 or game cube game because it's essencial RE4 with HD graphics. and a new story and co-op online, this is nothing but a HD port of a Gamecube engine because thats what RE4 was made for originally.. I need something more than this, This could have been done on the original Xbox sans the graphics I want something thats stands above the last gen. Physics, animation. destructible and interactive environments, intelligent AND aggressive AI, R2, gears2 Killzone2, Bioshock, uncharted L4D, dead space. Next Gen experiences. not Last gen enjoyment with HD graphics. more of the same, which was why DMC4 was shallow. RE5 is following the same suit. I'll skip it. I look forward to Dark Void.
5/5? They're 'aving a laugh.
The demo was sh*tty anyway...
Look at these haters. Lol. GDIAF.
I'm just happy Capcom is giving us a choice to change the game mode from classic to action, which allows us to shoot and reload while moving. The is a video on the marketplace that confirmes this, but I don't know about the PS3 version.
I would imagine that it would be implemented in both unless M$ is buying exclusive control schemes now.
I can't decide if I want this or not :|
what are you talking about, show me a link thats states it is better on the PS3, the last story I read stated the Xbox-360 looked better.
Amen Tudors. I remember an article on here two weeks ago showing pictures from ps3 compared to the 360 and it was clear the 360 looked better. Hey Tudors, I guess he found that article in some ps3 fanboys myspace page.
The difference is so small no one can argue if it looks better on either console, there's small differences in lighting and smoke effects, but beyond that there is no difference at all.
I love RE4 and I am gonna get this game for my PS3 :)
Check out all the hate !! If you don't like it don't get it! who cares if the ps3 version looks better ? Not me, I will still getting the xbox version (damn those achievements);}
What ever! the game only cost 30 pounds, which means it isn't guaranteed for everyone to like the game. If it's 39 pounds, then it's a Halo/Gears/COD sort of title worth purchasing!
