I am predicting a average score. Pretty much read the read below because he makes sense.

I'm prediction an 9/10 or above. Hopefully they stay real about it. Big name franchise often get a free pass. Some people will like it just because of the name Resident Evil. In reality, this game is Resident Evil 4 in co op. The story is totally lame, it's just more of the mutated people bio weapon stuff but now in Africa because they already did spain.

The graphics are nothing special either, but maybe it's not fair, that I've already played Killzone 2.

Im really into the RE story. At least its better than the movies. And since 4 really didnt have much to do with the main story im ready to get back into it.

based upon the demos I played on both consoles.
8.5 max...anymore it would be a joke

Ghoul4001d ago

i honestly dont understand how you guys only judge a game by its controlls

sure its a crucial part, but i bet its still an awesome game. day1 buy for me.

controls make or break gameplay for me..
Gameplay makes the game for me

For me the controls as so last gen..
I am not asking for a run and gun game, but geez, for me its pretty bad

I was being generous with 8.5...the game is all about mood and atmosphere and they dont even get that done right...the loading/equipment scheme killz the mood...the wait between cutscene and action also is a mood killer

Another question is how people can judge a game based on someone else opinion?

This is a day 1 purchase for me too.

Zeus Lee4001d ago

Oh you mean like how Killzone 2s perfectly fine controls has become the unnecessary criticism against the AAA title?

...Anyways,going by the Demo,and how much videogames have evolved since RE4 came out,RE5 deserves nothing more than an 8.0/10.

SonySoldierEternaL4001d ago

exactly how i feel

it's just a last-gen game with a fresh coat of paint on it.

Ghoul4001d ago

i dont understand what you meant zeus. But resident evil is no competitive schooter. its a horror game.

shooter with bad controlls = unplayable
resident evil with bad controlls = sometimes annoying but definatly not a game breaker.

FYI, RE5 is more an action shooter than a horror game! the game is designed closer to Gears than the traditional REs! so...if they've decided to go the action route, why don't they change the controller to a more modern scheme as well? if you wanna talk horror, Dead Space is leap and bound creepier than RE5 for that matter!
