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.
@KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (4 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (4 Hours ago)
i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (5 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (5 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (5 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (6 Hours ago)
tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (6 Hours ago)
