Just because, someone's gonna do it eventually, despite Brad being bearded for a couple months now.

This game looks so amazing.  I only wish they'd allow players to aim and move at the same time :(  I just couldn't seem to effectively control my character in the demo  :(  In the end no matter how great the graphics and story if the controls prohibit me from controlling my character effectively then it's a deal breaker for me.

I have to say Giantbomb has some of the best videogame video reviews in the biz....I love you guys.

I was disappointed with the demo, but having the game on friday it took half an hour to get used to the controls.
I completed it earlier today. I love the game.

Hahahah, loved the ending. Definitely gonna pick this up.

Good review, Brad. There might have been a few spoilers in it though...yikes.

This game looks AMAZING

Thanks for actually reviewing the game and not trying to turn it into a politically correct PSA.

Great game, great review. It's finally nice to see someone review this game that a) doesn't start crying about racism and b) doesn't give it an absurdly low score because it didn't revolutionize the genre.

Nice review Brad. The game looks pretty good.

A lot of times we have to step back and reflect on how great a game is. Sometimes we get too caught up in the hype and extreme expectations from every game.

Haha, nice ending. I'm sure Jeff doesn't like that.

Great review, might pick this up.
Thanks Brad

So far .. my bro and I love this game. Get it!

Posted by Gearhead

I must say, I don't mind the controls. At least the AI is built with these in mind. Also, ending was priceless.

Posted by lemon360

LOL the ending was fucking hilarious!!

dcpc10 : this game is far from boring. it's actually one of the best paced games i've played in recent memory, and (as usual) the demo doesn't really do it justice.

this was a great review. i especially agree about the graphics, as i'm continually floored by how good this game looks even 4/5 hours in. plus, i lol'd @ the ending.

Loved the spider scene knowing you hate spiders XD

I think NOW might be a good time to collect RE4 on the wii in the bargin bin before going on to this...

Posted by coffeesash

Wow, spoiler cutscenes from 75% through the game :P

Posted by jlaudio7

LOL nice ending, vinny.

Posted by MetalGearSunny

This review reminds me so much of the MGS4 review....

Posted by Brackynews

Gesticulating Brad.. gesticulates well. ;)
I have to rent this soon.  Not gonna slog all the way through it until the summer though.

And one thing I'll say is the parasitic creatures are cool and all when they split in half, but are really not any more impressive than those in the original Parasite Eve.  Those PE rats are still nightmare worthy.

If I dont know much about the story, and havent played any of the previous Resident Evil games (Except a little bit of RE4), would I still be able to get the gist of the backstory, and follow along with whats happening in the game, or will I be completely lost?

If anyone could answer this question, it would be a great help to me. Thanks!

LOL that spider stuff scared the heebee jeebees out of me :D

I wonder: Is Brad the coolest reviewer IN THE WORLD wOOOOt!!!!

Posted by Death_Burnout

The beard still lives!

Posted by AndrewB

What're you buyin'?

Posted by DiGiTaL_SiN

The last spiders bit must've been at Jeff's request!

Posted by Shabran


that ending was hilarious

I can't believe Brad came! Bring back Kevin, Rich, and Alex, and I will die for this site.

Posted by MrBump

I creamed my pants... JUST FOR YOU BRAD!!!

Posted by giyanks22

Nice ending...

Good review...

The controls just felt way too awkward for me in the demo, and I just can't see myself getting into it.

Posted by Afroman269

@ dcpc10

You look boring.

Posted by Matfei90

Great review as always.

Posted by Alphazero

My wife overhead Brad talking as I watched the video review and said, "That sounds like Tom Brokaw."

There you go, Brad. The voice of the greatest generation.

So you got that going for you. Which is nice.

Posted by sneakysnake128

hahaha good ending

Posted by MeatSim

Capcom better make up for the lack of mysterious merchant in this game with a mysterious merchant business simulation game.

Edited by chuckimus

I was semi interested until I played the demo... this is a pass for me.  Wonky controls.  

Look at the boss near the end of the review... seriously... just chug away on the gun and... what?  The character movements are stiff stiff stiff.

im currently playing though this game, and I def recommend it, so much fun co-op.
