Talking About Games Review: Resident Evil 5

Talking About Games:

"To wrap it up, I must say that I have not been so satisfied with any game since Dead Space came out last fall. While I was not one of the eager Resident Evil fans that bit like a starving zombie at every new piece of information about RE5 before it came out, I was certainly happy to buy the game and I was completely floored by the experience that unfolded. Rarely has a game ever taken its core mechanics so far and executed them so well. Never has there been a cooperative experience that demands so much teamwork out of both players – even beloved games like Gears of War 2 and Left 4 Dead allowed more room for personal glory in their cooperative campaigns. Resident Evil 5 really has it all: a story that is exciting and interesting from beginning to end, moments that are truly unforgettable, characters that are worth your attention, well-executed gameplay mechanics that couldn't have been cooked any more perfectly, an overflowing amount of bonus features and reasons to keep playing, and the best presentation the Xbox 360 has ever seen. If there are a thousand different factors that make a video game worth playing, Resident Evil 5 does all of them "well" at the very least. There may be a couple of hiccups along the way, but all of the brightly-shining greatness that makes up for it is enough for me to call this one a grand success. So, I have two questions for you: Are you busy? Do you own Resident Evil 5 yet? If you answered "no" to either of these and you have a friend nearby, you are truly missing out on one of this generation's very finest offerings with every passing moment."
