Andrew Weymes of The Nightly Gamer writes: "Video games are probably the most rapidly evolving forms of media. What was fresh and exciting two years ago can be looked at as archaic by today's standards. In the time that a developer is developing a game, other developers could have released several other games that redefine what a proper control scheme for that genre is. This seems to be the case with Resident Evil 5. It is definitely a great game and worth a play for people who enjoy shooters and cooperative play but its control scheme is in need of a major overhaul. If Capcom were to release another Resident Evil game, it would need a completely revamped control scheme. The control scheme for Resident Evil 5 doesn't need to be scrapped entirely but there has to be some serious modifications if the series is to maintain the level of respect that gamers have for it."
