*There is no way to compare RE5 (Or RE4) to the first three titles. No way. Though they are following the same story line, the mechanics changed so radically between 3 and 4 that it basically became a new game. For better or worse, judge as you may- It's still the same story line and there is still just as much to love.
*Yes, RE5 it is much like RE4. The control scheme is mechanically the same (With the addition of new actions) and you still have to stop to shoot (Which, technically, is tactically sound and every army and law enforcement agency knows this)- But that is where the similarities end. In RE4, you have this sense of isolation and total self dependence; If you get into trouble, you have to get yourself out. It was this claustrophobic atmosphere that made RE4 one of the greatest games ever. In RE5, you always have backup. Through most of the game you're in contact with some outside force aiding you in your struggle. It's no longer that creepy, just tense.
*No puzzles. At all. At least nothing that could ever be considered a puzzle in good conscience. RE4 had a few puzzles to speak of, but those really just felt like a formality. In RE5, they've nixed them all together.
*Last but not least; Sheva Alomar. A lot of players seem to hate having an AI partner following you around, keeping you alive, carrying stuff for you, helping you solve puzzles, etc. Ignore those players. They obviously have no idea how to use team commands and have no clue what they are talking about.
The game is worth every penny.Read more ›
The graphics are fantastic and it performs very well with modest system requirements, a true visual achievement.
The sound design is solid except for the lack of footsteps, seems like a silly gripe but if your enemies aren't screaming at you from behind you won't know they are there even if they are in full sprint.
The value of this game is very high, especially at it's current price, lots of progressive features and challenge to keep you busy on top of it's enjoyable game play formula.

Due to Windows updating to DirectX 11, this game crashes right from the start. The only way to get it to work is to downgrade your system.Published on April 18, 2014 by Matthew Waterman
