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.
@Megido: Brothers is one of the best games in terms of storytelling. (11 minutes ago)
I'v heard good things about Brothers ofc, but i haven't played that yet. (6 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: The Darkness was the last good game they made, then all the talented people left and started Machine games. Wolfenstein was greatm, syndicate sucked. It's all the proof i need :) (6 Hours ago)
Not that I have high expectations for CrossFire 2.. but it's interesting to see SmileGate spending so much on its development. (8 Hours ago)
@Megido: Seems a bit harsh.. they may not have reached Butcher Bay quality since that title.. but I don't think they've been putting out pure trash. (8 Hours ago)
Too bad starbreeze sucks now then :P (8 Hours ago)
StarBreeze is working on the CrossFire franchise too: [url] (11 Hours ago)
