Hello my dear readers! Long time no update right? Sorry! Holidays and then winter has had me preoccupied. In addition, more life drama then one can handle. But enough of that on with the review!
Recently I got my hands on a copy of Resident Evil 5. I had to replace a couple games and Gamestop.com had an amazing deal of buy 2 used games get one free (of equal or lesser value.) So I bought Halo 3, Resident Evil 5, and Left 4 Dead. RE5, being my “Free” game. Anyway! Booting up the game I felt excited as a little school girl getting noticed by the boy she likes for the first time. (And for me that’s saying something I never am that excited about a video game..) Anyway we boot it up, and start playing. (Co-op with a Friend of mine. Who goes by the Xbox Live Gamer tag, “ganadoleader,” which ironically is a reference to Resident Evil 4. It means “Cattle Leader.” (However, this is another story entirely.) The game rings so true to the RE series. Only thing we found we didn’t like was the inventory system. We agreed that the inventory system from RE4 is superior. However, I didn’t want to label this as a con, because it somehow works with the game. (The D-Pad for quick select is quite handy..) I for one have never been a fan of the laser sight system it has in play but I have adapted nicely and am adapting to the RE play style quite rapidly. I highly recommend picking this game up. Pre-owned at game stop it’s $9.99 GO GET THIS GAME NOW!!!
5/5 - *****
