By entering the european Playstation Store, you can now download the Resident Evil 5 demo. The demo contains 2 stages, playable in single player and co-op, both online and offline. The download is 942 MB.
u mean there is an option?
you can play the demo by yourself, with a friend offline, or with someone online, they included the co-op part in the demo
i want to be able to play alone. without a partner. without an AI partner!! i thought the woman was an extra character u get to play with at one point in the game. not a must partner.
nop, she's part of the game, you're a team with her. There might be some parts where you switch between the 2 but they are together the entire game.
It's up on the US Store already.
sux huh? You pretty much MUST HAVE a friend to play with. The AI is hopelessly stupid and the demo is pretty much you running for your life the entire time until you are either rescued or kill a boss type character for a key. The AI won't run, she stands there and fights and gets killed and you constantly have to call for her to run away. Sux. If the entire game is like that, it is rather disappointing. The game is very fun but this single aspect ruins it completely for me. Guess I need to get a buddy to play the game with me otherwise it won't be any fun. Kinda shocked I haven't heard more people complaining about it. People are whining about the controls, yet the controls are completely fine. I mean they give you 4 different layouts that all work well. I personally like Type D controls, being able to strafe and look around.
I don't mind AI partners. I just don't like it when 1 - You have to babysit AI partners. Here's your warm bottle Dom. 2 - AI does something incredibly dumb you can't prevent like open fire on a horde of enemies you were going to sneak past.
^^^ you played the demo yet? That is basically how the AI is. Dumb and you must babysit her the entire time. Hop online and play and it is fine if you have a good person playing with you but otherwise...going it alone seems futile. She has 2 commands, protect you or attack. That's all you can do with her.
THe graphics are very fuzzy. And I also thought it would be 60fps after seeing the trailers that caused the racist onslaught. I didn't mind the controls since i welcome the idea of games being different from one another. Will compare the both myself soon.
I did play it and I agree. The AI is quite stupid. I am DLing the PS3 version for visual comparisons. And I have the preorder paid off on the PS3. I played the 360 version and notice the only thing good about her is the way she looks. I had to revive her every time I turned around.
ya sux. Knowing me I'll get hyped up and buy it most likely but I hate that they did this to my beloved RE :( Is she with you the ENTIRE game? I really hope not but I'm guessing she is. Guess I'll just try to get someone online to play with me while I make my way thru the game. So far tho, people are pretty terrible online. I can tell they have played before cuz they know to open certain doors and things and boost and all that. Yet they choose to stand in front of the chainsaw guy and get killed...I don't get it....
just downloading it now, i have played it on the xbox a few month back and loved it.
I got this on the 360 a little while ago but since I was planning to buy this on PS3 anyway I think I'll download the demo again and compare the two. Not that I think there is going to be any difference
Regardless of what people say, there is always a difference. I am downloading it now and will flip back and forth and have a look as well.
Normally i could careless bout which has an extra pixel here or there but i was like wtf i'll try it for this game.... Did split screeen on my TV both HDMI connections for ps3 and 360 PS3 looks little less greenish (dont kno if thats a plus or minus guess its preferential) as for the detail level both are on par, went to the same spots that were highlighted a few weeks ago showin the ps3 demo(JPN demo disk ver.) and Xbox. where the PS3 version looked horrendous, well good news is they're now equal looks like Capcom was telling the truth bout having them both run the same. 360 ver.does have better shooting controls (triggers) other than that i prefer TYPE C ps3 controls closest you'll get to classic RE layout unless they add custom option
For the first time ever I found the online to be a lot smoother on a PS3 version of a game. I kept getting disconnected when on the 360 last week but the game is running flawlessly on the PS3 now. I feel more at home with the PS3 version to be honest and I'm going to go with that. The 5 gig install is a bit of a b!tch though
I just tried it out.Its weird....but I feel disappointed
the controls or...
yeah controld are terrible. really i hope they will fix it
The controls,atmosphere lacked horror,and it wasn't even that thrilling like RE4. As a huge RE fan since its early days,I'm sad to say its not as good as RE4 or even does anything new. Strangely enough I think they should make RE5 on the Wii so that way I can use the Wiimotes or the Gamecube controller.
it has been up 4 like 3h lol nice tho lol looks good havent yet found the time 2 try it tho lol
Sweet, something that hits Japan and Eu on the same day on PS3.
thats something u dont c every day lol so true lol
Are things changing for Europe.........
Looks better on Ps3,just checked it out
article is old they're both equal now just did splitscreen hdmi setup for both running at same time, PS3 verion is the same as 360 now still a lil less green tho
This and KillZone 2 demo(coming)this week ;-P Feels good owning a PS3!!!;) RE5 on PlayStation is the only place RE should be!!!
I think the demo is quite crap. The AI is awful, its just a group of enemys standing there who hit or grab you now and again. I got bored of fighting them after i killed like 5. The graphics themselves are good, but the environment is strictly limited and filled with "invisible walls" and you cant interact with anything, (reminded me alot of DMC4) Add to that a huge install, they basically put the entire game on the HDD!! That just shows they are lazy devs and the engine isnt all that impressive either, for example the bodys "bubble" away in an un-realistic way as soon as they are killed, just not impressive at all. If you sit back and compare this to say Killzone2, it really shows how either K2 is really ahead of most games, or RE5 is behind them. Actually had more fun playing Fear2 Demo lol.
RE5 is R4 on HD. I didn't like R4 but the co-op in RE5 makes it pretty appealing to me... I liked it.
Meh... look like gears of war 2 with better graphics.
I have played it and i didn't like it. I think it's a normal game with some polish graphics. but what was really annoying was the gameplay. is it me or the gameplay sucks. didn't like the movements of the char and we must always check if your partner is in need of some help. I think it could be better coming from Capcom.
sweet im going to put both demos on and change channels to see the difference im not buying it, im renting it, but il rent the best version.
Resident Evil 5 Demo suckz
What the hell .. I can only hope it's not for the whole game , but actually short sessions .. or i'll not play this game solo , ever
really, REALLY hard to make up my mind about this game... i was actually impressed how it felt more this-gen than i expected (the cinematic camera angles during revives etc), but i was also disappointed in the physics, some of the enemy animations just look horrible, especially when you blast them with a shotgun and they fly into an obstacle, they just "teleport" through it (hard to explain), it's like the weirdest thing ever. you'd think by now games this polished would have decent death animations and whatnot... all in all the game does look pretty great though. framerate could've been better. also the controls, i didnt have any initial prejudices because i remember playing RE4 and loving it, but now the same controls just felt really sluggish and unsatisfying. maybe Dead Space and it's fluid controls have something to do with it.. i dunno. and the AI partner.... again, i really dont know, she wasnt THAT big of a pain, but didnt really add anything into the gameplay either. just felt really pointless. i'm just very confused with this game, i dont think i'll be getting it day one at least. but i certainly dont want to miss it completely either... hmmh.
