Maybe if it came out last gen, but RE5 felt dated with its tank controls as soon as it was released. Big part of the reason versus mode sucked. --- Ghaszaszh Nyirh. Of the Old Ones, the scrolls say that he loved the debasement of his slaves the best. And they go to him willingly.
RE5 is the King of Modern RE in terms of .... well, everything, from graphics, to story, to weapons, to the tight gameplay, to features and to the Mercs.
RE4 in comparison is weak and outdated. RE6 in comparison is overly loosened, terrible gameplay, and story that is all over the place. The game cannot even decide if it wants to be action or horror, and felt so forced.
Bring back RE with 5's gameplay and CVX's atmosphere, and RE is gold again. --- Chris and Leon Bromance - October 2nd 2012
It definitely isn't better than 4, but it's a really good game. If they had just injected more horror (or really any horror) into this game, it would have been a great sequel to 4. But it's still a great action game and has tons of replayability. --- "damn, it's like a disco ball's in front of my face!" -chris redfield
