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.
They injected life into the game. And it's now a world that looks like ots enjoyable to explore, not just a gap in between colossi. (1 Hour ago)

boss rush mode. the game has a perfect place. It could very well be a perfect remake for everyone, but as it is it isn't. too much content deviations. and the ps3 is up to snuff as the purist version. (9 Hours ago)
@jmd749: thats just daft. There is nothing wrong on SotCremake for anyone that wasn't there, that din't scale the tower with all the lizard/grip, that didn't catch a eagle, that didn't did all the (9 Hours ago)
@nostradamus: If you want to be so purist, then I could argue the PS2 version is the version to play, afterall PS2's resolution is the resolution the creators created the game's assets to be rendered. (10 Hours ago)
