Yes, and yes. Resident Evil 5 is an awesome game, with a ridiculous amount of replay value. I'd ignore the people who have been bitching about the controls- they're fine, even though they aren't identical to Gears of War. The story is also great, but different.
Is it better? No. But RE4 is unquestionably one of the best games of last gen. I couldn't possibly imagine it being considered anywhere outside of last gen's top 5 overall games. Is it still awesome? Yes, totally. It doesn't get the credit it deserves. It's still an excellent game. If you're a long-time RE fan, you might not be too happy with the action-game-style direction, and may have some gripes about the story, but if you won't let those little things ruin it for you, you should have a wonderful time with it. It's good enough to be a GOTY contender this year. While I disliked the real time item and weapon exchanges at first, they really were a smart choice. The co-op stuff works great throughout, though keep in mind that it sort of hurts the game's fear factor since you're not completely alone. Also, for the record, Sheva is a pretty fantastic AI companion. People don't know what they're talking about. They apparently expect her to just hold weapons and health items and not use them, which is absurd. Yeah, she'll use the stuff, so the best solution is to just not give her the weapons and herbs you want to use yourself. Or simply play co-op with a friend. Sheva's also a total babe, but that's a topic for another day. Get RE5. If you want to wait and get the upcoming version with the added DLC, okay. Or if you're able to download DLC online, you might just want to get RE5 now and download the DLC later if you decide you want it.
