RE4 sucked its not an resident evil game it has no connection in story in nearly any way shape or form, It didn't reinvent the over the shoulder view because guess what the over the the shoulder view actually has to be good in the game let alone do something new, Over the shoulder had been done before RE4. Crapcom hasn't made a game i enjoyed in a long long time.

P.S: when you click your link it goes to the gears of war 2 review here, it doesn't go to that image.
P.P.S: whats funny is the creator of resident evil the guy that created the shitty RE4 wont play RE5 though they are the same action games in the end.

*the above is opinion only, and constitutes no gurantees or contractual repsonsiblities.*

P.P.P.S:all so gears of war you actually use the chainsaw, in RE4 only the enemy is allowed to use it.

Ciffy B mentioned a couple of times that he was heavily into Resident Evil 4. Getting some inspiration is one thing, but collecting stuff from my favourite game for my game is pretty lame. The connections between the berserker and the other guy are nothing short of embarrasing!

I corrected it.

Who wouldn't have copied Resident Evil 4 though? I mean that game was THAT good. Someone was going to have to build on it.

Pointing out those similarities in the two games is kind of ridiculous. It's like pointing out that Doom is in the first person perspective and has guns therefor every game that involves either of those is a shameless rip off.

The chainsaw in RE4 also only makes small appearances, where in Gears it's a core game mechanic for the enemy and the player alike.

How many games use use guns? Every single first-person-shooter is a ripoff.

This is nothing but flamebait, flamebait I can kind of agree with, but flamebait, regardless.
