Well RE4, ammo was so abundant, and if you played correctly, you would literally be swimming in it.

RE5 they fixed that and ammo became a lot more scarce.

I agree with Gavin their is hardly any ammo or gold compared to re4. Resident Evil 5 is survival horror at its finest.

RE5 allows you to play the game anyway you want

Drops from enemies and barrels(I think ) are random. While ammo might be scarcely placed in chests and on shelves (which it should be) if you're lucky it gets plentiful from just killing. I'm a knife and meleeholic though so my ammo was pretty much rarely used until the tougher enemies showed themselves.

I've been having to play through RE5 again since I lost all my save data on my first PS3 when it broke down. I've been finding my self low on ammo too, but I never actually run out. There's always something that gets me by.

Plus I give most of the machine gun and rifle ammo to Sheva since that's all she has and is all the AI is good at using.

I've been waiting for Nintendo to reveal a handheld with the 3DS's graphics since 2003.

If you adopt the AI's style of shooting the enemy in the chest until it's dead, then yeah it will be rare. That's why Sheva always runs out of ammo >.>

Personally my style is to shoot once or twice, melee, stomp. You can imagine that by the end of a chapter I'd already have two full stacks of handgun ammo and close to a stack and a half of shotgun shells.

I was drowning in so much ammo in RE5 Chris could have started a war, it was always Sheva who was my ammo leech.

I definitely didn't see any improvement in ammo limitations in 5 over 4.

What made RE5 worse was the continuous progress. If you end RE5 with 400 Handgun ammo in your stash, you start a 'new' RE5 game with every last round of those 400. Replaying chapters to make money and collect ammo didn't help either. At least in RE4 you could start a completely fresh game.

Thats because you use those stupid button prompt wrestling moves melees to help conserve ammo. Thats not my strategy i shoot everything which is more fun but i still run out of ammo. I disagree their is less ammo given in this game then re4. Doesn't really matter i can turn on infinite ammo if i want to.
