RE fan!

by Andrew Chen on 3/31/2009

I am a RE fan and I've played all the RE games ever released. Although it's not the same as the previous RE in terms of game play, it is very action packed like 1st person shooter game. I really enjoyed the game because of its realistic graphics and the collaborative mode was awesome, too. Play for yourself and you'll know what I am talking about. Read More

Review We could probably easily get away with not calling the Resident Evil titles survival horror anymore, and that's become most evident from the newest release, Resident Evil 5. I don't mean this in a bad way though, in fact, Resident Evil has transformed into a damn solid action title, but I fail to see anything terrifying coming out of the series since having the zombie dogs jump through the window in part 1. However, even though Resident Evil has lost it's ability to scare me over the years, it's improved ten fold on the playability side of things, and it's transformed into a top-tier series that's worth taking a look at for just about any action game fan out there...There are certain elements to the Resident Evil games that fans seem to think are integral to the series. No running while shooting, businessmen with world domination ideas, and a plot that's as far out there as the creature designs tend to be. For the most part I won't disagree with this, and while I'm in the camp of people that think running and shooting wouldn't ruin the gameplay, I can see why the developers opt to keep that style of gameplay present for the latest entry...But really, any complaints I have about the AI and QTE bits are pretty minor in comparison to the game as a whole. I definitely loved this entry into the series, and think that it's a great follow-up to Resident Evil 4. It might not innovate as much as the previous entry did, and the bits it borrows from titles that were inspired by its predecessor don't seem to have the level of polish that I think they should, but for the most part the game is a joy to play, and something that any action game fan should be willing to check out. If you have a friend to play along with, then that's obviously the way to go, but don't let the thought of playing with the AI deter you from picking this up. It's a great game, and well worth your time.

Review Isolation is a powerful tool for instilling fear. Staring down an overwhelming horde of supernatural foes with only a handgun at your side isn't enough; true terror dawns when you realize you are alone, and no one is coming to save you. Until recently, if you had told me that it was possible for Resident Evil to harness dread and desperation by giving players a competent ally who can bail them out of trouble, I would have rolled my eyes in thinly disguised disbelief. Now I've played Resident Evil 5, and I believe...The latest entry in Capcom's zombie-infested juggernaut pairs special agent Chris Redfield with Sheva Alomar, allowing you to play co-op through the entire game. If you think having a buddy in the field diminishes the stakes, think again; working with your partner explores new avenues of fear and intensifies every encounter. It was terrifying to see a chainsaw-wielding, burlap-wearing freak bearing down on you, but wait until you see it happening to your partner only feet away. You'll watch through a sniper scope as an infected mob surrounds your friend, and frantically lob grenades at hulking abominations to buy time for your partner to line up a clear shot. The presence of another player transforms Resident Evil's signature style of combat into a harrowing mixture of tactics, cooperation, and survival ? all while retaining the same carefully crafted atmosphere of looming horror and anything-can-happen thrills. If you aren't playing Resident Evil 5 with another person, you're really missing out ? not only on the best this title offers, but also on one of the best multiplayer modes in gaming, period...Resident Evil 4 was among the best games of the last generation, setting unprecedented expectations for the next entry in the series. Resident Evil 5 succeeds in staying close to what gamers loved about the last title, but it also takes risks that pay off in unexpected ways. Co-op changes your approach to survival horror, and the masterful pacing ensures you never take your eye off the action. Like its predecessor, Resident Evil 5 is destined to be remembered as one of the best games of its time.
