Listening to Zero punctuations review of silent hill home comming.
Zero punctuation puts it the best about combat in a SURVIVAL horror game..."Haunted towns are affected by the economic crisis too and they can't afford to leave many bullets around but you know what? thats a good thing survival horror combat is supposed to be hectic pannicy and often not worth it, if im not dreading every monster encounter then its not horror is it? its just setting up an unpaid pest control buisness.”
RE4 isn't like this but i dreaded RE4 Wii's combat because it was just that hard, maybe i was playing it wrong but i had such a horrible time with the game *i eventually beat the PC version with a trainer* but it was insane i would get EVERY and I mean EVERY last scrap of ammo, herbs...ect every thing i could get inbetween the start of the game and the time you leave the small little cabin when you first meat spanish dude and you have to fight your way through that valley.
I would upgrade/buy what i needed dark cloakity mccloak guy (who seemingly was infected like the rest but didn't wanna kill me and that was never explained that i know of) and i would proceed to fight my way through the valley with its 500 or so it seemed enemies i wouldn't miss a single headshot i wouldn't miss a single stick of dynomite (since though i hate the wii the Wii mote gave amazing accuracy) but seemingly i would all ways run out of ammo, get killed or have like 2 bullets left, I have since been told i can run away but seriously some of these freaks were relentless..infact one time i got every pickupable item in the place while avoiding every enemy only to get near the end and be stuck being 20 spanish weirdo villagers and 10 spanish weirdo villagers with no where to go.
So with no choice but to fight my way through and then ending up with about 10 pistol ammo left and like 1 shotgun or whatever weapon I had at the time id meet mc dark cloakity villager guy that didn't like me, then proceed out his house to find my first chain saw dude and be killed because i had not enough ammo to take him down. I didn't dread enemy encounters cause i was scared of them but that they were so freaking hard half the time I had no choice in running away in this game specially If I wanted ammo or freaking gold
RE5 seems to be different combat seems to be easy from nearly every single trailer, gameplay segment and live feed of gameplay i've seen specially in coop modes....I weep for Resident evil...I bought RE4 wii never finished it, sold it (along with the wii) pirated RE4 pc used a trainer, and i have no urge whatso ever to pick up RE5 yet every game before these two I religiously searched for in their gamecube incarnations...Oh well now im just bitching.
