My Problems With RE5 PVP

Posted by ShadowKiller (894 posts) -

First off I wanted to say I love everything else about RE5 and it's probably my game of the year. But I'm finding the new RE5 PVP is full of glitches and small things to piss you off. Did any of you guys notice this?

  • It will say that a match has already started once and then when you go back again that same match is still there and you are still unable to join.
  • Sometimes if you kill someone, as soon as you go to steal their gun they will respawn right behind you and since you are already weakened from fighting them a few seconds ago you don't stand a chance.
  • Some enemies will walk into your opponents but won't attack them only to attack you a few seconds later.
  • There are really no way to tell if people are your skill level. (Although I can understand how they didn't want to have a ranking system)
  • It's full of kill stealers... well not really capcoms fault.

    I'm not complaining because I lose a lot since I win most of my games but I just think that it would be a better experience if some of these things were fixed over time. How are you guys liking the PVP?

I hear a lot of japanese RE veterans complaining about the RE5 PvP, too. They think it needs more tuning because it is currently unbalanced.

Weapons are unbalanced. Whoever has the stronger weapon wins. RE veterans tend to choose the same character since there is one character widely considered to have better starting weapon. Some people think that Capcom need to bring in the stun effect in campaign when you shoot enemies in the head, hands, or feet to make pistols more effective in veterans' hands.

They also complain that players tend to be not so aggresive in slayer mode, especially team slayer. They think Capcom should add more incentives for players to kill each other.

I just finished watching the quick look and I dont think ill be picking it up. I was thinking about it before since it was cheap but they played against 2 weskers and they were shooting them in the head and somehow wesker had time to turn around, pull up there gun and shoot them in the head. Because they had spent time to unlock wesker they won because they had a magnum, I dont really call that good game design. In the end it might just end up being magnum battles. Apart from that it just looks like content from the disk, even at 2mb I dont think that can cover the netcode of the game so its probably on disk content. Though saying that, the netcode looked awful.

I had no idea how horribly unbalanced S.T.A.R.S. Wesker is but after seeing the Quick Look video I'm pretty pissed at Capcom. Chris has a shitty handgun, Wesker has a magnum, a hydra, and a Samurai Edge. Who do you think is going to win?

Everyone just picks someone with a machine gun, it kills you before you can with a shot gun. I don't find the Survivor mode fun, I do enjoy slayers, except when all the people do is try to kill you and not the enemies

I called this shit the moment they announced Versus mode.

I'll pass on this mode.  Competitive Mercenaries almost sounds interesting, but I can meta-game through the leaderboards without spending five dollars.

I agree by just seeing the video review vinny made. It is pretty laggy.
