Played thru Leon, Chris and Jake 1st campaign. Kind of gives you the feel of what the game is like. Definitely a more action oriented game and less survival horror. Difficulty seems moderate, even while playing on Hard ( Veteran ) your AI partner is actually useful now and won't burn thru your resources this time around. The online co-op for the campaigns is fluid and quite interesting. Whoever joins you has infinite ammo and such. To be fair I read you must finish all campaigns solo tho to unlock Ada Wong's campaign. Plenty of gameplay customization, like activating the laser sight similar to RE4, default shooting hand, camera movement, etc. Cons: There is no real pause in the game, action still goes on while you duck and 'pause' . Formula may be a deterrent to die hard fans of the series, being more Hollywood and action oriented, and somewhat of a mesh of different genres into one game. Pros: Production value very high, sound is excellent, graphics are great ( 2012 ). The game has Quick Time Events incorporated but it is not dependent on it by any means like in Asura's Wrath. The game is engaging, enemies are unique, and has its cool I'd-like-to-do-that-again moments. Plus, the game seems to be LONG. You really feel like you are getting your money's worth in gameplay hours, not just a short 9 hour story mode ( like the entire Uncharted series ). Undecided ( ? ): You upgrade skills instead of weapons, which is more of a shooter characteristic, and you can only carry 3 skills at a time. Note that I am no Resident Evil fan, got into it with Resident Evil 4 ( which is great ), beat the meeker and way too easy RE5 and only watched the 1st movie. The game will appeal to more people and will prob haul in more gamers into the series the way #4 did. Oh yeah, and it will sell millions, which is what CAPCOM expects to do. Full review coming in near future.
