5.0 out of 5 stars
Amazing quality, Feb 2 2009
Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars
I downloaded the demo off of xbox-live, and unlike the reviewer ' Anon "anon" ' I understand that demo's are "demonstrations" of a game...and not the full game.
Anon "anon" if you do not understand what a demo is, please please PLEASE do not make an entire review based off of it! You waste your time, the time of those who read it, and you submit false/inaccurate reviews.
If you loved resident evil 4 you will LOVE this game!
To correct the misconceptions created by Anon "Anon":
"I didn't see any real campaign mode or anything" THE ENTIRE GAME IS A CAMPAIGN! You were shown 2 pieces of that campaign! DO NOT EXPECT TO DOWNLOAD AN ENTIRE GAME FOR FREE WHEN IT IS CALLED A DEMO!
"I find this a kind of lazy production on the part of capcom,"
Yes...very lazy of them to go out of their way to make a demo for fans to enjoy...damn them for taking the extra effort to bring us a free sample! They should have been nice enough to personally come and deliver free copies to everyone's door on a silver platter!
"and to be honest the controls are not so great(bout the same as resident evil 4)."
Yes...let's complain about the controls in one of the highest rated games of all time. The controls aren't perfect, but no game has perfect controls. These are a tweaked version of RE4's controls, they are a lot more fluid and, they are also the controls for the demo, RE5 even put up a disclaimer saying that the demo isn't a complete version of the game and may not perform as well etc,. etc,.
"It's basically a fraction of the game resident evil 4 was."
...Demo's DO tend to be a FRACTION of a game...please...stop being dumb. If you didn't know, you can go to stores and buy FULL-LENGTH games! Surprise Surprise, Capcom wasn't handing out free full-length copies of RE5 on xbox-live before the games release date...
"Catered to the left 4 dead crowd, not really resident evil fans. "
...This is just like RE4, but with a new story-line and upgrading graphics, controls and online/offline multiplayer mode! Which is something the Resident Evil series has always needed. This game is catered for the gaming community. PERIOD. Anyone who plays the Resident Evil series will certainly love this game!
