Should I play RE5?

#1SheenaTheWomanizerPosted 11/30/2012 10:57:25 AM
So I have played all the older REs but skipped 5 for obvious reasons. But I liked 6 allot am kinda wondering about the Chris backstory and killing Weasker... But is it really that bad? Just want some real RE fans input.

Go ahead and play it. Then judge it for yourself if its a good or a bad game.

No it's nowhere near as bad as people say and if you liked 4 you'll be fine with how 5 plays.

Resident evil 5 is a great game. Don't listen to all the hate it gets. Yea sure it may not be like it predecessors, but the game is great fun and that's all that matters.

As said above, it's not a bad game at all, but it may take some getting used to with the major control differences of 5 & 6.

Gold edition is also free for PS+ or $30 which are AMAZING deals.

If you do decide to get it, gimme a call at my PSN in my sig.

What I would GIVE to play the Biohazard/Resident Evil Outbreak series online again. Kevin Ryman makes Leon Kennedy look like a whelp.

I got the Gold Edition a few months ago for like $15-20 new at Best Buy, so check your local electronic/gaming stores first.

5 is a great game. You will have control shock though if you played a lot of 6 lol.

I did enjoy 5, and enjoyed 6 too, but as a huge RE fan I feel after 4, the games have just lost their charm.

I can't even properly describe what it is, as I do enjoy the newer games, just not as RE games.

This is probably one of the reasons why I'm so gutted Sally Cahill was replaced as Ada. She would have been the last link connecting the older titles to newer ones...

All that crap aside, 5 is a good, solid game, and is really enjoyable. It's more polished than 6 as it's only about 1/4 of the size and had more time in development.
