this game deserves every sale :D

Great sales, but I thought this game had a bigger following... It spawn several games, and several movies. Am I wrong?

Good. It was a good game, now Capcom it's time to modernize the gameplay for the next installment. It doesn't have to be a complete revamp just upgrade the gameplay experience like Metal Gear did from 3 to 4.

good game, but did not deserve to sell 5 million copies.

RE4 was one of my favorite games of last-gen.. 5 was awesome and I loved playing through it with a buddy who loved 4 as much as I did (playing with someone who actually understands the story/characters and gets excited at the same great moments makes the game that much better). I was disappointed at the lack of scares, but I couldn't help but find the cash spent on the game justified. Not like Capcom needs the millions and millions of dollars.. but I'm happy to see solid sales, because that usually ends up meaning a sequel is on the way (at SOME point, anyway.....).

Hats of to Capcom. Good job on the game. They could have done a better job with the extra charge for the "Versus" mode. Someone above mention that they thought the RE series had a bigger following. It does, but look at what great games are currently out there to play too.

@PorcelainGod - There's no need for name calling. Thw demo was okay, but honestly I have been playing KZ2, Gears 2, and Fallout 3 to have time for it now. So I did not buy RE5, but to call someone else an idiot for buying a game is not necessary.

edit: Why did you not like the game? I know a lot of people were turned off by Capcom not sticking to the original roots of the RE series. Is that it or did it just totally suck for you, game play, graphics, etc? How much of the game did you play?

what a stupid game. nothing about this game is even close to good. the fact that "zombies" can shoot guns and ride in vehicles is just plain retarded. the control scheme is just horrible.

this game got its sales from the previous 4 games. easily one of the worst/overhyped piece of garbage games ive played this gen.

"Almost as bad as GTA4.

A garbage game selling to idiots who will buy anything with a famous name on the cover. "

There you have it ladies and gents, the great and all mighty Dumba$$ does not like RE5, so anybody who does like it is an "idiot".... Lol!, control scheme to difficult for you?!?!?...
So, now I'm the halo name considered to be for idiots or intelligent beings?

After RE 2 it kinda went down hill for me. That's when I fell in love with Silent hill. But then after Silent hill 2, that series went down hill as well. What the hell is up with these sequels.

@ above
Totally agree, Resident Evil 5 is one hell of a game and I hope it sells ten million. Congrats Capcom!

I think it was a great game if we put aside the fact that it wasn't true to resident evil roots.

Steve0074065d ago
