Resident Evil 5:Best looking game this gen?

Hell yeah. 

I hated the controls but still enjoyed the ride, mostly because of the awesome visuals. 

Btw, where's the OT?  I wanted to read EB's take on it but the crap search couldn't find it. 


Enjoy.

Looks better than Uncharted 2, Himumu.  Suck it, sfag.

mercs mode > the actual game.  the campaign gets a worse rap than it should though.  It's not as well paced as RE4, the story isn't as good, but the core shooting gameplay is there, which is enough to carry it.  It's also replayable as fuck. 

Except the rail shooting/el gigante part....that was some crappy shit.

edit: console versions are definitely not better looking than uncharted 2.

I like RE5 better than UC2 and I agree.

Only legitimately bad part of the game, yeah.

Game isn't as good as RE4 but I played the fuck out of it.

Agreed. The game starts to suck when the enemies start using machine guns too, but other than that it's pretty good.

And yeah, RE5 looks great. MT Framework is just a beastly engine.

RE4's campaign was definitely better and so was Code Veronica even though it might have went on a bit too long.  

Also, I definitely could have done without a guest appearance from Nina Williams.  :yuck

Why?  IMO, CV is probably the best "traditional" RE.  2nd is probably RE-make, which had OMG graphics and atmosphere but the story was nowhere near as interesting as CV.   I'm glad that I played both back then because neither would hold up today with the even more dated than RE4/5 controls.

How did most of you beat RE5 solo, btw?  I find the last two levels substantially harder without cheating and buying a shitload of ammo for the grenade launcher and multiple magnums.

Uncharted 2 and GOW 3 look better, and code veronica rocked, it was by far the best of the old school RE.

Shitty back tracking. Worst back tracking in the series. Long drawn out times without save points. It just isn't fun. CV blows.

I beat every mode on single player. Haven't played RE5 on co-op ever. Give Sheva a sniper rifle and magnum and you're good. Last two levels are all memorization, planning, and strategy.

Lol none of the pics work

Something's wrong with imageshack's left click zoom.  After picking a pic, just press right click to view instead of left clicking and it will zoom to full size.

I think it would have been waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better without the forced co-op, but I wouldn't argue against it being the best looking game in my collection.

I think it would have been much better in solo if the game had given you more control over Sheeva.  Some of the AI quirks are really annoying like Sheeva's propensity for holding onto medical aids and reluctance to use higher powered weapons.  When I gave her a grenade launcher and shotgun, she would often not switch to the grenade launcher even after running out of shotgun shells.  On the bright side, Sheeva is a much more likable character than Ashley.  It would have been much worse running around with a partner that's both dumb and annoying.

The guy I got stuck beating the rest of RE5 with fucked up on the last QTE in the game and we had to do it again. FAIL.
