Gonna be awesome, loved RE4, but this one is gonna be better in terms of visuals, story, location...etc. but still gameplay wise have the same formula as RE4 with added co-op for offline and online.

The best in any aspect! Action in RE5 is so much intense and awesome! Bring it on!!!

AI looks horrible, and I hate the partner/co-op system, but I haven't lost ALL hope yet. There's still time

They're not going to remove the co-op if that's what you're suggesting...

I wish the enemies would stay instead of dissolving into thin air.

Haha yea, what is that all about !

I think it looks pretty good for RE4 fans, but for me the feel of the old RE games is totally lost now, I don't like the idea of adding Co-op to this either, it feels like they are trying to make it less like RE and more like Gears.

I may get it for the story, but gameplay isn't really interesting me that much.

RE4 on steroids indeed.

Zombies are supposed to be clumsy not downright retarded.
Commented on 2008-07-17 18:10:12
Who says zombies are not retarded? Ever seen a zombie in reallife? ;)

About the game.. In HD the graphics look less impressive then I first thought, but still good enough.. Since the game is not coming out before March 2009 I presume they will polish it up a bit more with better textures etc.. I also miss blood and wounds on the enemies when you shoot them, I would like to see that added in the final game aswell..

The only game thats up there with Gears 2 in terms of graphics

The visuals are unbelievable. I watched this last night.

Next gen, what a beautiful thing.

This game is looks really amazing! Oh and for those who are complaining about the co-op, its not a far drift from the series, RE Zero had co-op.

Not really, but it sure tried. At least they got it right with this game. Resident Evil Outbreak 1 and 2 receive an honorable mention.

The only thing I found strange with a video I've seen(on another site), is that Chris can actually survive up to three chainsaw hits before dying. I find it strange as to why the developers did this, because having a certain foe who could one hit kill would always put someone on edge. Now that feeling of watching your own back and always being aware of what's going on is somewhat gone.

Not to mention the reality factor that if you got sliced with a chainsaw the chances of death are very high :S

It looks incredible and the graphics seem to be pulled off effortlessly. It even looks like it might be 60fps! There's no problem with the textures, they've just added this brown filter/colouring. Personally I preferred the more colourful look when they first showed the game, maybe they think that murky colours and desaturation would sell better to western gamers as so many western games have that look, lol!

Don't worry, if you saw the preview trailer shown at E3, they showed Chris exploring a variety of areas with different color palettes, so you most likely won't spend your entire time in the current land being shown. Capcom will probably make it have as many different environments as RE4 or maybe more.

That's cool. So it's just brown while they're in that dusty town? I can't wait to see the more colourful levels then! :D

It looks great but I am very dissapointed how RE-series turned from a horror game with zombies and a spooky mansion to an action game with angry farmers and no spooky at all. Really dissapointed.
Commented on 2008-07-20 16:34:46
The castle in RE4 was spooky
Commented on 2008-07-20 17:43:06
And the village under storm in the night was spooky too;)

Code Veronica was the most scariest in my opinion though.
