Resident Evil 5 Taking a Step Back?

Kube00 Says: I finally got a chance to play the Resident Evil 5 demo for the Playstation 3. I gotta ask myself, "Is the game going backwards? Is Capcom focusing too much on co-op play to try to make more money while isolating its dedicated fans?"

Originally, the game was made for you to play it at night-in the pitch black-surrounded by the moaning and shuffling of hungry zombies seeking your flesh. I literary screamed like a girl many times when playing this game when I was younger. The series is known for missing the run-and-gun along with complex puzzles, and find-the-piece and take it here quests. The non-existent run-and-gun creates a tense atmosphere, as you have to find a place to stop and shoot the encroaching enemies, making every shot count as they keep coming. If you want a run-and-gun semi-horror go play the one shot wonder, Dead Space.

Capcom played way too much Left 4 Dead, Prince of Persia, and Gears of War 2 last year.

Oh, and this game IS NOT scary. What happened?

Ouch ouch ouch.. and ouch.. I don't think the demo was as scary as the RE games have been in the past.. but then again.. I didn't like the demo for L4D and I LOVE the game.. so we'll have to see what the full version holds

...and agree with some of the comments the author makes. I've decided in my mind that this is not a game I'd want to play in the single player offline. The NPC is far too liberal with bullets for me. Besides after a couple of rounds with a real live player, I truly believe this game is meant to be played online co-op and the single player game was an afterthought.

Single player alone gets Frustrating. I wouldn't play a level again if it was offline.

With co-op, I could play the same level multiple times without getting bored. Also made some friends by doing so.

Last time I checked I had the ability to walk backwards and shoot at the same time. What gives? This doesn't have to be RE 4.5.

I barely played 5 minutes of the demo before I shut it off and deleted off my hard drive. Too many other great games to play before this one.

bgrundman3558d ago

I really wanted to like it, I just couldn't get a handle on the controls... it was too much of a hindrance. I guess I am just spoiled :P

JimmyJames703558d ago

I agree with @bgrundman, I wanted to like it, just couldn't get into it.

It takes time to grow on you.

The Online-coop is what you should try.

bgrundman3558d ago

I will be interested to see if it sells better on 360 or PS3. Anyone willing to make a bet?

I wish they'd stick to what they're good at: tense survival horror, limited ammo and strategic stands.
