I stopped caring about the series after they decided to make it an arcade shooter, but I still might download this demo.

Are you serious? RE4 and RE5 are the best games of the series. Who cares about the arcade shooters they made.

No way! We miss the days of moving like a tank, static camera angles and not having a ****ing clue what you're shooting at. Why did they have to go and fix what was so blatantly and fundamentally broken?

havent played RE5 but 1, 2, and 3 were def better than 4. it is, after all, a survival horror series and it got turned into "heres tons of ammo go kill everything and we forgot the puzzles"

4. was. so. bland.

What the hell is wrong with you guys? RE4 was ****ing awesome and it WAS a survival horror game. Those ****ing re generator creatures scared the hell out of me the first time I played through it. It was an intense game. They still had a few puzzles in it. Also note that in the RE5 demo the ammo is very limited.

Well I was mocking him and all idiots who think games should be limited to make them harder.

4 was awesome. Since I don't have my xbox at school I won't be checking out the demo, but I'll probably wind up getting it over the summer unless they announce a Wii version sometime between now and then.

Needs a Wii version. Played the demo a couple weeks ago cause a friend works at Gamestop and it was neat.

I played it a bit ago and really enjoyed it, especially the co-op. I can tell it's going to be pretty challenging, can't wait till it comes out.

Haven't played any other REs apart from RE4, which is definitely one of my favourite games from last gen - I don't care what 1, 2 and 3 where like. 5 seems (or seemed, haven't been keeping track of it lately) too much like 4 though and I'm gonna have to wait for the PS3 demo but can't wait nonetheless.

This game is going to be pretty good, especially since you can play with a friend now. I really like how challenging the game is going to be. Team work is absolutely going to be essential in order to get though areas.


and wtf people? Seriously, play the older games.

i got it today and played through both levels, and did one in online co-op.

i liked to co-op, but if you play as the chick, her over-the-shoulder view is reversed (presumably because she is left handed?) and that kinda threw me off. wish you could shift your grip like you could in the newest splinter cell games, but other than that, its more or less RE4 in Africa in HD. I preorded it ages ago and am still going to play it to death.

unfortunately my 360 RRODed soon after playing the demo.

It wouldnt be a Resident Evil game if it were easy. Aim for the head(obviously) and you can stun the plagas niggas, then run up to them and there'll be an option to melee. That saves ammo.

RE2 is my all time favorite, though the original brings back fond memories. Nothing beats cheesy voice acting and costumes that look like they belong at a children's halloween party.

And I can't wait for a future RE game to go back to good old fashioned T/G-Virus zombies and monsters.

I noticed how there wasn't as much ammo in this as there was in RE4. Using the knife a lot seems to be a big part of the gameplay. That big guy with the axe killed me lol. I do sort of miss it when there were actual zombies, but this game is fun as hell to play and quite challenging. RE4 was challenging from the start, especially on pro mode, but then it got easier. I'm just wondering if they have another merchant dude like in RE4. That guy was awesome.

RE2 was awesome but it was way too short. I remember beating it in 2 hours. At least RE3 was a bit longer.

Demo was lame. I didn't enjoy RE4 either. I don't understand how people enjoy the control scheme.

I thought the demo has been out for a lot longer? I played it like 3 months ago.

Anyways, it was okay, pretty hard because I haven't played a RE game in a long time.

It was only up for a short time. Still aint played this, but I've heard the controls suck and your partners AI is poor. Until its released, Im going to play Dead Space.
