Oh, right. Forgot 0. I'd probably put it before Revelations 1 and after Outbreak's.

Even if RE4 didn't fuck over the series and didn't open the way for a decade of trash RE, it still would have a few too many redundant/lame rooms to beat other Mikami games like REmake and GodHand.

I'm not so down on 5. It's clearly nowhere near as good as 4, on pretty much every level. It's not as personable or charming. The gameplay, structure, level design, and mechanics are sometimes half baked and uninteresting. The co-op is pretty mediocre all things considered and tedious when played solo.

But.

It's still kind of fun. Despite over the shoulder becoming the norm, no one has really matched RE4's use of it. How it feels tense and really hammers in you to be careful and thoughtful with your shooting. It's why to this day it's still really playable. When people complain about not being able to move and shoot they show that they don't get it.

Still, RE5 is one of the few games to kind of understand that tension that comes from over the shoulder and so I can still play it despite is lesser quality. And co-op is pretty fun. It's a solid game.

5 isn't bad per se but it's not on the level of 4

People with poor opinions of 4 have poor opinions in general and should be laughed at

few games hold up to 4 so I don't hold it against 5. I think RE4 is my most replayed or bought game ever. I have bought it on GC, Wii, and ps3 and I've beaten it at least 6 times on each system. It's getting close to another run since I'm in the RE mood. I should go through the entire series tbh.

Defending RE5 is like defending a bollywood ripoff of Terminator 2. Though RE4 was the beginning of the end. The original demo they released for GCN when it was still a horror game looked so amazing. Then REmake flopped and they changed everything for the babies who were too stupid for exploration and combining things. At least 4 was good for what it was, even if it was nothing RE, but 5 wasn't even good in what it tried. Thankfully 7 finally killed all that shit for good. :rejoice

I agree that RE5 is not on the level of RE4 (not much is!), but it was still a blast to play and I probably replayed it more times than I did RE4.  It was a really fun action game that I liked playing solo, co-op, and even enjoyed the online versus stuff in.  I thought it was an excellent game in its own right.  Really the only RE games that disappointed me were half of RE6 (Chris and Jake's stories) and Revelations 2, which just felt so jank and low-budget crap that I never did play beyond like two chapters.

Still disappointed that Capcom has yet to follow-up on what happened after Revelations, since two of the bad guys got away in the end.

:what
I've never heard you talk about it ..... Not like you do RE4.

5 was the last one I played since 7.  I thought 5 was ok.  The rushing hoards were tense.  But didn't get me excited enough to try 6.. by word of mouth, seems I didn't miss out on much. 

As much as 7 makes me feel like playing RE all over again for the first time, I wonder if I'd feel the same not playing in VR.  :doge
Tell you what though... This is the 3rd game I've ever played where I'm probably gonna have to get the paid DLC, I'm enjoying it so much.

That's because I played the shit out of it before you got on all these boards.

I also played the shit out of the 3DS Mercenaries game.  Loved that shit.  Wish it had been ported to something else.

Honestly, as much as I hate 6 the one good thing I can say about it is the Mercenaries is solid.

I think 6 would be overall solid if the campaign was tightened up. Imo, all of Leonís campaign is actually good.... and maybe half of the rest.

I just really like these games in coop. :-/

Yeah.  Leon/Helena was good, plus Ada.  Chris/Piece is...eh.  OK at best, if that.  And Jake/Sherry was crap.

Leon's first two chapters really set the tone for how I wanted the rest of the game to go.

"You just murdered the President, your closest 'friend'/ally post-Raccoon City in cold blood. Now you're trapped in a Biohazard outbreak again. Are you a bad enough dude to survival horror the night?"

Then it gets stupid. Until China. Where it picks that tone back up (in the background) but goes fully-action. :yuck

Chris' campaign is :yuck because a lot of it just poorly made.

Sherry/Jake's campaign is meh. Could cut like 90% of their campaign, make the lab into Leon's campaign (featuring Sherry as a throw-back, who gives a shit about 'Wesker's son?' Double-so in that they haven't mentioned him since!) and expanded that outbreak in America (and China I guess) out more than they did.

Ada's could've been alright, but the stealth is broken (like the rest of the characters) which makes it pointless.

raid > mercenaries

In no universe is that true.

RE6's demo was enough for me to never play it. It was atrocious. Also, being able to shoot while running? Fuck you Capcom. Buckling for those feggits that demanded RE turn into Dead Space was :barf

My favourite thing in RE5 was playing coop and both getting the cattle prod. You could juggle the enemies in between you and a friend by just wacking them after their stun animation ends. Great fun.

Stolen from reeeeeeeeee:


Quote
Just announced on Capcom's Resident Evil 2 Launch Event Stream. Ghost Survivors is a free content update for REmake 2 that will be hitting post-launch, no date yet, but it's a new game mode where you can play as multiple characters, it'll be a mode with randomized elements, an in-game shop (not micro transactions, earn points in-game by performing well), and should be very replayable they say. Hints it might be like a randomizor/rogue mode, but no 100% at this time. Confirm that Robert Kendo, a USS Member and Katherine (mayor's daughter) are playable in it, surprisingly the characters from the main game not confirmed playable at this time (but say more characters to be revealed).

More info to come soon.

---

SLIGHT UPDATE: Not much more, but this mode seems it'll be dished out in volumes over time, three volumes, the first one will hit at an unknown date, have Kendo, a USS Member, and Katherine playable. The mode may have a loose "alternate reality" story mode and randomized rogue-like mode, but it's a bit unclear right now. Confirmed this first volume will include a brand new enemy that's not in RE2 normally, and again is a free content update.

If you actually go back however many months to play it when there's gonna be so many other things releasing, then sure.   :trumps  Sounds like a Shadow of the Tomb Raider let down scenario to me.  I should've not gotten that at launch.

Unless they radically changed everything: No. Each ones campaign is the same. Only minor differences (A/B scenario changes room orders/directions, like one character comes from the north in the Sewers where in the B scenario that character comes from the South, "Zapping" system hold-overs [just a gun and extra item space] being saved).

Each one takes a similar time-frame.

I could see it being something like eight hours the first time through and then three hours on a second run when you know how to get through everything.  Maybe that's what they meant.

I played Claire A some years back, after a decade+ of not touching the game, and i beat it in under 4 hours.
I didnt remember most puzzles etc, so 3 hours when you remember everything, seems plausible.

Scenario B was significantly longer tho.
