Resident Evil 5 Demo Impressions January 29, 2009

Posted by Matthew in Demo, Feature.

Resident Evil 5

In bullet point form because I can’t be arsed typing in paragraphs:

  • Controls initially felt awkward and clumsy.
  • Analogue stick aiming is nowhere near as accurate as the Wii remote in Resident Evil 4.
  • I don’t like the new “real-time” inventory system – being torn to pieces while fumbling about in a menu is never fun.
  • Graphics are very impressive.
  • Chris looks stupidly buff, his arms take up roughly three quarters of the screen.
  • Sheva, your partner, sometimes feels like more of a hindrance rather than help.
  • Babysitting co-op AI is never something I enjoy, I hope she isn’t with you for the whole game.
  • Some of the worst screen-tearing I have ever seen.
  • Very similar to Resi 4, all the “Resident Evil 4 HD” comments seem appropriate.
  • There really is no excuse for not being able to move and shoot at the same time anymore, you can strafe but not while shooting.

id agree with literally every point made here!

Lawl, I spot a typo.
Get it together, Maf. =p

Also, Tiq’s impressions of Resi 5: massive LOL at Chris Redfield suddenly becoming a steroid abuser.

Inventory needs better D-Pad hotkeys.

Tiq referring to himself in 3rd-person = massive LOL.

4. Tiq - February 2, 2009

You still haven’t fixed the typo. =p

Where is this mythical typo?

6. Adam - February 2, 2009

It’s called Biohazard!11!!11! (Tiq = Weeaboo)

Hahaha, stealth edit… well played, man.

I liked it but the weak-assed pistol was a bit disappointing and it seemed far too difficult.

Not got a prob with stopping to aim. I kind of liked that in the first game.

Consider me marginally stoked.
