"Resident Evil 5 was a definite change of tone for the series making a move towards action and the first to fully feature cooperative action." Resident Evil: Outbreak begs to differ. It introduced co-op to the series 6 years before Resident Evil 5 was released.
Had meant that it was designed with two players in mind with the "fully feature cooperative action", just simplified it which was a mistake.
The whole game was a mistake. A mistake i had to learn about when I bought the gold edition. Clanky and stale are the two words that stuck.
Good game...not Resident Evil Resident Evil 4.5 will always be the true RE5 http://www.relyonhorror.com... That game could have molded RE6 to be better.
I liked this game. It was more action oriented, but was not a bad game at all. It gets a bad rap for little reason.
I played this game in co op with my sister from start to finish and thought it was great. Same with Army of Two. I can see where RE5 could have been lackluster on SP though, especially considering how bad your ally AI was reported to be. But as a pure co op experience, it was great!.
I enjoyed the game. You have to have the right expectations. If you go in expecting RE4, you'll be disappointed. If you judge the game on it's own merits, it's not too bad.
You know, I'm a long time RE fan and yes I prefer the older games to the modern games, but I freaking loved this game. I liked the Wesker fight that required actual co-op gameplay rather than a contest of who can shoot more enemies. The one where one of you fired a rocket, the other shoots it in Wekser's hand, one guy runs up to hold Wekser, the other injects the serum into his neck. Like that was great playing it with my friend. Full disclaimer though I liked 6 as well, so take from that what you will...
Great game but a big step back from what Resident Evil 4 was or even the previous games. But I have to say that I love sheva and there teamwork in this game is amazing.
This game was nowhere near as great as Re4, but damn if i didn't have fun beating the coop with my wife, we beat it like 3 or 4 times.
This was a fun game, just a bad RE title. I think Code Veronica is very underrated.
I'm adding my voice in favor of RE5. I too have a long road in gaming and i love the originals by nature, but i've had a hell of a lot of fun in 5 and I've enjoyed every minute of it.
Good action game. A garbage resi evil or survival horror game.
