    Sounds very good, but I am very pissed that they kept the "no shooting while moving" while getting rid of any remnants of fright. If that continues into RE6...grr.

    I will be renting it but the lack of fear and horror keeps me from buying the game.

    The 'you need to stand still to shoot' idea kills me and, personally, it killed the demo. i just don't understand WHY they'd stick with that antiquated control idea. stupid stupid stupid.

    as big an RE fan as I once was, i do not want RE5. usually, if GR reviews a game as good, i'll play it. but i played the demo and hated it. Capcom could have made something that could have been a GOTY contender. RE5 just seems like a missed opportunity. They reskinned RE4, sped up the infected, because they aren't zombies and gave the awful AI character a gun. I may rent it in a few months just to see what the buzz is, but i highly doubt i'll be buying this. No hard feelings to you though GR. It was still a very well written review, as always

    @GearsofRabies, Not only nazi zombies but the whole freakin game's split screen is like that. I rally have no idea why, its not very reveloutionary to me, it just seems stupid

    I think RE4 is better then RE5. I remember the first time I played RE4 I was like holy then I played the RE5 demo and was like meh its okay. But this game still seems pretty cool. Nice review by the way.
