Capcom unleashed Resident Evil 5 in all territories last week and we've covered it pretty good with the PS3 version and tons of gameplay videos. Here's the classic First 10 Minutes video, this time from the Xbox 360 version, showing a bit more on the story. The game itself is very good, great graphics and gameplay. Many of you probably already own the game, so feel as always free to share your impressions in the comment section.
Dritwood's speaking: I wanted to support Manager's impressions of the game with a short comment. I was not entirely convinced by the demo myself and I have to say that once I got the game, I completely changed my mind and just got sucked into it. Some will certainly bitch about the oldish gameplay feel of the game but don't let it keep you away from Resident Evil 5 as it'd be a huge mistake. Soon enough, you'll forget about the somewhat awkward controls and you'll simply lose the notion of time while playing, which is always a very good sign.
The coop mode is excellent and although it tends to make the game a little easier - in normal mode at least - be sure that some sequences are challenging enough to feel all the tension you need to get. Graphically, the game is just stunning and the pleasure of discovery is emphasized by the fantastic scenery, the great character models, the realistic lighting and the over the top cutscenes. So give a go at it, it'd be a real shame to miss such a good game, no matter what some people say about it.
Okay not many, but a handful! :D (1 Hour ago)
@Sdarts: Recently 3D World really delivered some nice local co-op. I do agree that companies are skimping on that. You'd be surprised by how many local co-op PC games you can find if you look though. (1 Hour ago)
@Sath: I know you will only read this later, but it was nice chatting with you and GriftGFX as well, and don't forget The Division will come out on PC, which will be the best version, no online pay. (1 Hour ago)
@Sdarts: nice chatting with you this morning, gotta hit the gym for 1hr and 30mins and come back home, probably play some Warframe or watch a movie or something. (1 Hour ago)
I rather keep my money and buy great SP games and using those "Ps+ money" for DLCs than pay for a game and pay for online and pay for potential DLC, i dont think so! (1 Hour ago)
Thats why games like Destiny and The Division for me is 95% not a purchase since they require PS+. Destiny is a FPS, great if they had solo mode outside Ps+ and The Division, outside graphics, meh. (1 Hour ago)
