Resident Evil 5 isn't survival/horror. You won't be scared while playing it; you probably won't even be on the edge of your seat. If you're one of the players that cannot bear this revelation, this sequel will be an enormous disappointment. If, however, you can look past that – or merely love RE4 for its gameplay style, don't mind a rehash and could care less about the scares – Resident Evil 5 is a great game. Amazingly, it's actually better the second time around because you're fully prepared for the disappointments and can enjoy the game for what it is.
