Resident evil 5... *Spoilers*

#1ChrissieXIIPosted 1/17/2013 12:01:13 PM
Anyone else prefer Resi Evil 5 to Resi Evil 6???

Resi Evil 4 was without doubt great and yes Resi Evil 5 strayed from survival horror. But it was still eerie, scary and took the series to a new level. Chris was more likeable and Sheva was a good combatent partner. The back story with Wesker, Jill and Oswell E Spencer helped to clear things up and served as a great plot. The location and change of zombies was also done well I think. And its ultimate finale in the volcano leading to Weskers well deserved death capped it off.

Resi Evil 6 was good but it murdered survival horror and horror altogether becoming an eventual third person shooter. Enemies weren't that scary and there was far too much action then horror. I think the game spread across the world too much resulting in wide spread action rather than confined horror in one location i.e. mansion in Resi Evil 1 or land mass like in Resi Evil 5. Derek Simmons didn't stand in Wesker's shadow well and ultimately fell flat as the final boss.

What do you all think? Opinions very welcome. Remember this is a 5 and 6 comparison.

It's the worst main game there is.

and yes Resi Evil 5 strayed from survival horror.

4 did that. 5 only continued that.

The back story with Wesker, Jill and Oswell E Spencer helped to clear things up and served as a great plot.

...what'd it clear up?

The location and change of zombies was also done well I think.

...there aren't zombies in 4 or 5.

And its ultimate finale in the volcano leading to Weskers well deserved death capped it off.

About time they killed him.

Resi Evil 6 was good but it murdered survival horror and horror altogether becoming an eventual third person shooter.

4 did that.

Neither game was the least bit scary.

TC if you want to talk about the game that strayed away from the old games that would be re4 not re5. re4 and re5 dont have zombies in them. When was re ever scary? If re6 murdered survival horror then what the hell is no hope mode? is it my imagination? Capcom labelled re6 as a dramatic horror game. Since horror is subjective, just because you dont experience horror dosent mean its not a horror game.

I thought RE6 was closer to this "survival horror" you're talking about compared to 5...
It's all a matter of opinion...I think 6>5..I love 5 though don't get me wrong..
