Thanks for your review. I have not had a chance to play it yet. Playing the Grand Theft auto 4 game the lost and the damned.

Resi 5 is good Jose, the controls are old style because it`s meant to be an stoic method... and in a way it is more realistic :p

Once you get past the initial discomfort, it flows naturally, and as you upgrade your guns, you get that "god" feeling... especially if you have a good partner. I`ve been playing with my JP friends and I absolutely love how they have figured everything out and have a tactic for everything. Very good game, worth every penny!

okay I watch the review from xplay and it really seems that they did not like the game. 3 out of 5 for them means its just a game not bad but average. Most games that fall in that catagory are movie games and old remakes. They said that the control style was so last gen. with inovations to current control schemes in games today like gears of war 2 and fable 2 the game just seemed to focus on teh sucess of the 4th installment. What a bummer. If anyone else finds it a great game let me know so that I can check it out.

I guess I'll have to play the demo to find out myself. Thanks for commenting.

I don't think it would be much like that. I guess you could hide, but I think the zombies just keep coming. Unlike GOW where the enemy may wait and you can hide tactically. I don't see Res evil like that.

oh okay I think I got what your saying. SO would you consider it being like a gears of war type combat system. 3rd person with the ability to hide behind stuff.

I am not sure about the tomb raider, I forget what that was like. If you have played any of the resident evil games. The shooting structure is the same.
It is not like Halo or the other shooters. where you can run, and aim at the same time. It is more like when you use a sniper gun in those types. You can't move and need to aim and shoot.

Thanks Anthony for your review. What game would you compare the shooting style to. The way you mentioned it in your blog you said shooting and moving at the same time. So it makes me want to say that it has something similar to tomb raider as far as that aspect is concerned.

I think the game is pretty good. I still can't get used to the shooting controls. But otherwise it is very sweet. The visuals are incredible and the story, from what i got, looked pretty in depth and interesting. There were two short episodes on the download. It only had a bit of the overall story.
Weapons are cool with a nice variety. THe second character that constantly travels with you seems to be helpful and not a nuisance.

So except for the fact that you can move when shooting! it is a 10 game I would say.

Sweet! Guess we'll have to wait for the 29th, as we're not gold members.

Thanks for the heads up. We've been playing Conan while my hubby has been on vacation this week, so we haven't paid much attention to much else.

Newbie question - how do you get access to the demo? My hubby has been waiting forever for the new res evil, and it would be cool if he could try it out.

No,
I see it for gold members only right now. That ain't me!

It looks good though. I hope the controls are good. That is the one thing about the others that I hated. I couldn't even finish the game because of it!
