After a long hiatus, AK has returned with a new review. This time it's Beautiful Katamari. Check it out here!
I also got to play the Resident Evil 5 demo. As great as the game is, I was a bit disappointed. After playing through Resident Evil 4 more times than I can remember, on Gamecube, PS2, and Wii, RE5 seemed to lack that scare factor. The demo wasn't long, but it did throw you into a heated zombie attack.
First, the good. The game does add a shortcut to switching weapons, and while it was a bit unintuitive at times, it does help after practice. Also, the enemies do use some stronger weapons, including a psychopath with a giant axe.
Next, the bad. Dragging along the other character as a CPU was pretty bad in my eyes. Yes, it actually felt WORSE than Ashley. I'll no doubt check the game out with one of my friends on co-op, but through the whole battle I felt more worried about my CPU character than myself, which isn't good. Also, the game wasn't the least bit scary. The scariest part was when Mr. Giant Axe appeared, and it was nowhere near as scary as when Dr. Salvador revved up that chainsaw. Perhaps the daylight had something to do with it.
I'm very excited for RE5, but the game doesn't look to match the near-perfection of RE4, despite its minor improvements. We'll see in March how well Chris Redfield's newest adventure goes.
Remember man, it's only a demo. When you play games, you can't expect TOO much. It's like when people over-hype games, when they actually get their hands on the game they have the tendency to not enjoy it. When you play, u need to keep an open mind. We'll see how it all turns out.
Nice review! :) And RE5 can't be that bad can it :? Maybe it's best to play as co-op rather than with CPU
nice review and nice impressions check out my impressions in my blog :D and trust me playing co-op with a friend is WAY better
