Resident Evil 5 preview and impressions

Even though the brand new minute long Resident Evil 5 teaser trailer exposed at this year's E3 was over before most of us even realized what the hell we were watching, there were a couple of details about the fifth chapter in Capcom's long-standing survival horror series that were given away in the video, such as the game's drastically different locale (or at least, what will be one of RE5's locales)...

The story is too old to be commented.

That trailer was awesome. Also cool to note it was all ingame on the 360! Now we can expect some good looking zombies or what ever they become this time around.

The game looks amazing but they must add a lot more new gameplay features to RE4 formula since many recent shooters are copying its system and upgrading it. From Gears Of War to Dark Sector, they own something to RE4, hope fully RE5 can be as good and fresh as RE4 was when it was released.

Agreed, to both aboves.

I strongly suspect this game is going to be a watershed game for the series. I have a good feeling about it.

It would be a shame to see it restricted to just one platform concept (i.e. horsepower), so I hope they can squeeze in some ingenuity for a distinctive Wii version too.

There's so much visceral potential in what the PS3 and 360 can offer to this RE episode, but the added control dimensions just simmering under the Wii's hood should not be ignored.

These graphics really are a huge step up from 4. RE4 was my favorite Cube game. It also won best graphics of the year.

This is one of Capcoms best franchises. I'm sure they will raise the bar.

The only other Capcom game hotter than this one is SFIV, but I think that is just a rumor for now.

If Wesker managed to revive Umbrella or how the hell did the Tvirus (seeing that those seemed like zombies) was released again... maybee a secret facility in africa or a deathtrap for the heroes..
