The latest Famitsu review scores include Resident Evil 5 (PS3/360) and 7th Dragon (DS).
Dengeki didn't like Biohazard 5 so much. I really can't believe Famitsu scored it that well! The jury is still out.
man the demo sucks download it from LIVE/PSN and try it out for yourself rent RE5 before buying
thats looking foward to playing RE5...i was dissappointed with the controls as well but all it takes is a little getting used to...Im looking foward to playing it online co-op.... Its a 1st day purchase for me..as well as Killzone2
actually hi-def I rather enjoyed the demo myself. and i look forward to playing the game, truth is its already paid off. i mean why do people hate on it so much, is it because its just like RE4, the game that sold massivly and won game of the year awards. come on, why fix whats not broken, if they changed it people would be saying it should have stayed like RE 4.
Ive been saying that all along...people loved RE4 for the graphics,controls and gameplay...and now RE5 has better graphics ..same controls and same gameplay..and they hate it? well its nice to see im not the only one looking foward to RE5.. bubbles 2 you bro
i'll probably not buy it, but definitely rent it... I hated the demo, but am interested in seeing the story...and i'm sure that after I get used to the controls a bit more, it won't be so tedious... for the record...I disliked Re4 for the same reasons...so don't come flying at me about 'its SUPPOSED to be like THAT!!'...i know I know...like I said...I hated it the first time, too...
Yakuza 3 is doing very well too. I hope they work hard in getting it to the states and EU. It doesn't have to be translated completely, just subtitles will do for me.
Problem with RE5 is that it's trying to emulate a shooter but does not have the controls for it. Why do they give us all these enemies without the proper maneuvering abilities. RE4 was revolutionary for it's time and the controls fitted the GameCube very well (1 analog stick only) and was the platform it was designed for (announced as a GC exclusive after all). Taken that into account and the fact that people didn't play shooters all that much at the time, this was an amazing feat. But the controls are outdated. Just like the old RE tank controls are outdated. You say "why fix what isn't broken" but the problem is that the controls are broken (and also very unrealisticly so). So yea anyway I'll just add that I also like the game but I can't deny the fact that I want better controls. Especially if they're gonna release a bunch of enemies from all corners.
Go Yakuza!! Same score as RE5 from famitsu and outscoring Biohazard with Dengeki
barom the reason they added so many enemies is because they want to make you nervous make you think "OH CRAP WHAT DO I DO" instead of "OH CRAP THAT SCARED ME", it would seem they are trying to do a different kind of scaring in the series now, instead of fright, more like worrying. but thats just IMO.
I'm kinda curious how ammo management would work in RE5. I mean, you cant give half to your partner you have to give 30 pistol ammo atleast. I hope they fix this at least with a give half option. I understand it's to expedite the process of handing out ammo. But it'll be useless if the giver runs out of ammo too and be unable to defend himself.
I just don't know how Capcom make street fighter 4 and perfects it and lets RE5 go out without serious gamer feedback. The controls are not marioesque they are stiff and clunky. Lost Planet 2 fTW!
This game scored higher than Resident Evil 5? I find that hard to believe, but you never know with Famitsu reviewers. Just look at the video I embedded. It looks like a slightly average PS2 game. Complete with stiff animations and repetitive gameplay. This would have felt dated ten years ago. I mean the PS3 has a ton of good looking exclusives this year and this is what caught your eye? I don't know what to say. Something tells me that if Yakuza 3 was a multiplat you wouldn't be interested at all. Watch the video, I dare you.

If you're going to show something, do the game justice. http://www.gametrailers.com... all you did is show the fighting gameplay. There is so much more to the game.
Yakuza 3 effin sick! The battles have always been like that, but not 12 to 1. Please release this in the States Sega.
That's why it was GOTY 2005, this is 2009 and all that's advanced in that time is graphics? That just doesn't cut it. Seems like Capcom just wanted to make a quick buck so they enhanced the graphics(which was gonna happen anyway because it's a new generation of consoles) and they just put in the exact same gameplay but throwing in co-op to not make it seem like a rehash. The co-op is the only reason I'll be getting this game.
Wow, Yakuza looks way better than GTA4... more polished too. If only i understood japanese perfectly. Seems like a very interesting game.
that is the score it deserves i think.
the game sucks it is re4.5
Halo 2 and 3 got 10's across the board. How does IT get a free ticket?
300 million fanboys that would tear down your house and endlessly spam your website for a low score, you would score sequels (that weren't as good) as high if not higher than the first game.
Is just me or Famitsu has really bad taste? People say that Famitsu it's the most important video game magazine on Japan but I was talking with some japanase guys on justin.tv while broadcasting "Demon's Soul". And they said that nobody cares about Famitsu in Japan... Famitsu it's just another one from the bunch.
i knew it ^^ i got feeling this game was going to get 8 or 8.5 ^^ well looking down " Yakuza 3 " got great scores cant wait for that game
Hehe, funny thing is just got down re-playing through that RE5 demo :). Can't wait for the game's release!
Yeah man another exclusive Sony PS3 game Yakuza 3 only getting AAA+ reviews. ' ' [PS3] Biohazard 5 85 85 85 85 ' ' LMAO resi5 sucks, and even though its clearly superior on Sony PS3 becuase of Blu-ray and the best Dual Shock 3, but this game is going to flop hard. the demo was garbage too..
Eight Hundred Dollar swag bags, insure 10's.
i would give the game 10 too if they'll give me a 800$ giftbag.
Still getting Resident Evil 5, day one. As a fan of the series, review scores mean nothing to me. Even so, I don't get this staple that a game has to score a 9 or above consistently to be a must buy. Uncharted, a game I enjoyed greatly, scored a whole bunch of 8s around, and it was one of the best games that came out that year. People need to end this "9 or above = AAA" bullsh*t.
bu but teh RE5 is teh flop
Wow, like someone mentioned earlier, Famitsu must really love RE5. In my opinion based on the demo, it doesn't even feel like a 9.5.
And this must be what goes on in the heads of people that are ready to sell their scores.
really, its resident evil many of the fans of re: 4 will buy this game. Demo was awesome i don't know wtf you're talking about, esp with the online co-op
I don't know what to believe, since Famitsu is crazy and all. I did like the demo though, which is weird considering I didn't like RE 4. Might be giving this a try.
i was disappointed in the control scheme at first, but i got over it, and i thought it was really cool. i loved RE4, so i can't see how RE5 is suddenly unbearable. i'll probably buy it eventually, so i can play it with my fiance and roommates. currently, my budget is limited, and KZ2 is my February purchase, and i'll decide on if i'll get RE5 next month, but i'm still behind on other games from last falls complete glut of titles (ie, i still haven't picked up Valkyria Chronicles, Dead Space, Eternal Sonata, Bioshock, and more).
I wouldn't use the word hate. I think "disappointing" would be appropriate though. Think of RE4 - arguably one of the finest games last gen. Released early 2005. It was a huge step up for the third person genre. Graphics, tech, gameplay, animation. Raising the bar in survival horror standards. Then in 2006 Gears improved 3rd person controls. 2007 gave us the gorgeous Drakes Fortune Then 2008 gave us the finest survival horror game yet released. It had the best Dolby Digital sound stage, graphics, particle effects and atmosphere from any horror title to date. The controls were refined to work excellently with added weight to stop the character from running and gunning. Keeping it slow, to add to the tension. (Instead of using a wonky control scheme to add to the tension) The new standard of keeping the game moving when going to inventory was introduced to survival horror. Stategic dismemberment. Excellent character animations and hit zones. No hud present so the player isn't constantly reminded that they are playing a game. No cut scenes - everything is viewed from your standpoint. The game radically raised the bar for survival horror standards. The game - Dead Space. RE5 doesn't look like a bad game at all, but from playing the demo it appears to be RE4 with HD visuals. The enemy animation is the same as RE4. The hitzones are the same. All that is different is the co-op, doubled the enemies on screen and they've copied Dead Space's inventory system. Now. Perhaps none of this is bad. If you like RE4 then RE5 is cool too, because it is more of the same. I think the "hate" you are seeing is more "frustration" because of RE4 raising the survival horror bar, then RE5 coming along and being happy to sit on the same bar which since 2008 is now well below the current standard set by the new champion. Personally I love Resident Evil and was hoping that the game would take that crown back from Dead Space, but it hasn't. There is too much that would need changing in the demo, from animation, to enemy AI, to controls, to shooting hit zones, to balancing. RE4 controls kind of worked because of the limited number of enemies on screen. Now that we have loads on the current gen systems, it makes the wonky controls stick out more. And the copy and pasted enemies that all die in exactly the same way, every time you shoot them, is a constant reminder that you are playing an HD title built on a last gen engine. I know I'm taking about a demo and not the full game but will the game control completely differently to the demo? Will they update all the enemy animations before launch? Will they write a new AI routine for the enemies before launch? Basically will they re-write most of how the demo plays before the game launches? No. So I feel pretty justified in saying that RE5 doesn't meet the survival horror standard, unless the demo is not indicative of gameplay in the full game ... but would Capcom release a demo that is not indicative of gameplay in the full game? No. My 2 cents. I'll still rent the game for the co-op, as it will be a laugh. I don't "hate" RE5. I do feel the demo was a big let down though, and the full game would need to be a radical departure from the demo to make up for all the last gen tech. Oh well. Maybe they'll step up to this gen with RE6.
I'm guessing RE6 will be the real sequel.
did good i cant wait to get it. but re5 kinda got overkill from famitsu i think that re5 is gonna be like a slow pace thriller with 10 fast moments. capcom should put re6 on the wii so they can test things out like what they did with 4 and made the best game ever for its time and set the ground for games to come. re6 wii can look good and Capcom can do what ever they want. because meh its a wii its not gonna look bad if it flops like its cuz re5.
