PushSquare.com: "Controls seem to be the staple mark of the Resident Evil experience. Ever since the Resident Evil 5 demo hit the XBOX Live last week hordes of Gears Of War-elitists got to put their trigger fingers to the test in the latest iteration of the popular survival horror franchise. Their response? "Sucks".
Let's clarify that this was the general reaction we got from a selection of the forums we frequent. We're not here to judge or comment on the 360 contingent.
After getting our hands on the game we quickly figured that there are two types of people in this world: those that played Resident Evil 4 and those that didn't. The ones that didn't will find Resident Evil 5 clunky and irritating as they ache to sprint around the gloriously realised interpretation of Africa shooting zombies with an overpowered machine gun. The rest of us will find the game archaic but competent."
