Resident Evil 5

http://www.bit-tech.net/gaming/ps3/2...vil-5-review/1

The controversial but long awaited sequel to Resident Evil 4 has finally arrived. Set in Africa, Resi 5 tells the story of Chris Redfield and his new partner, Sheva. Has swapping dark hallways for over-bright shantys made the game better or turned it into a biohazard though? We find out.

Resident Evil is, and shall always be, associated with running out of ammo, impossible puzzles, infuriating camera angles and a forboading sense of dread and isolation. I guess Capcom forgot this when they made Resi 5.

are all those images in this article screenshots from the game or pre-renders from a press pack? If the former than damn that's some pretty stunning graphics!

Slightly gory/morbid question, but is there proper damge modelling in this game? a couple of the images show chunks missing from sides, apparently lining up with the weapon's barrel - if you shoot a zombie in the side, does a chunk go missing?

In the Demo I found Sheva to be useless... She got me killed on more than one occasion... I might just get a gamecube and Resi 4 agian, that game was awsome...

TBH Joe, you've done better reviews than this. It's not crap, but some parts, like the game itself, felt a little unfinished and without that usual polish we've come used to from you.

That said, you do highlight the issues with the game. From just playing the demo on PS3, you are thrown into the game and are ready to tense up for the first onslaught of the infected, only to think, 'Oh.. was that it?' I get more frightened playing Fallout 3, tbh.

Press pack, unfortunately.

looks shiny but the whole concept has been redone so many times in previous resident evil games, there seems to be nothing new to see here. They have also showcased 4 of the bosses already lol ..what are they thinking ? I'm just happy with Killzone 2 and Street Fighter atm, with some Warhawk filling my time now and then, i'll give this a pass ..or should i say fail ?

I've had a couple of people say this to me - note to Capcom - only release demos if they're a GOOD representation of a game.

I thought RE5 was too easy compared to previous titles. Ammo magically appears in crates, new guns just lay out in the open, puzzles were way too easy, lacked diaries (most we cheesy and a failed attempt to bring back past diaries), lacked security doors that required codes from various sources, lacked important elements from RE1-3 etc etc. What the **** happened to reading in games?

For anyone that never played the originals, do yourself a favor and go buy a copy of Resident Evil Directors Cut. That's how RE5 should of been with it's puzzles, diaries, guns, ammo etc.

reliant totally on a weird man in a cloak for your ammo and guns.
I never was able to get ammo from the weird man in the cloak. Anyways I will be getting this game and i probably be disappointed. To me re4 was a masterpiece I have literally played through that game 3 dozen times. I've played it where i only use the guns i pick up or just use the handgun that you start with and all sorts of ways, which to me playability the second and third time through make a game. Re5 though has basically the same features except the ability to play with a friend online which I have said if they allowed you to do that on re4 would be one of the greatest games ever made to me. But i know that you can't follow up such a good game, like re4, with another game that is better. So of course it will get a seven, at least it doesn't get a 3. And I will be playing it on hard because who plays games on normal anyways. Good review though thx bit-tech.
