"The fact that I've beaten this game three times should prove how good it is, if that doesn't than the fact that this game has taken me away from Left 4 Dead should. The coop is fun, the gameplay is good, the visuals are amazing, and this game has a lot of replayability. When you're done with the main story you can play the Mercenaries Mode alone or with a friend and when you're done with that Capcom has a Versus Mode coming up that will cost around $5. All this put together makes this game great; if you're like me and you were expecting something along the lines of Resident Evil 4 then you will be disappointed. RE5 took a lot from RE4, but it didn't take the things that made it amazing: innovation, evolution, and originality. RE4 was the first of its kind, it evolved a much loved series, and did so many new things and did them all well. RE5 fails to reach those standards, but that shouldn't detract from the overall experience. I realize this review has been generally negative, but that's just because this is from hardcore Resident Evil fan's point of view. Is Resident Evil 5 game of the year? Definitely not, but it is a game that all gamers should check out."
