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 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.

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.

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

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.

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!

Good review...

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

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.

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

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.
