Possibly the best part about the game is the sound. Music, sound, environment really gives the feeling of fear and horror. However, the fear factor cannot compare to that of Silent Hill or Fatal Frame, this game is excellent none the less. Gameplay wise, this new over the shoulder camera view gives alot more freedom then the previous set angles. Almost everything about the game has been changed for the better and I really hope that the RE5 will feature this kind of gameplay. An action game fan would definately like this game. The action buttons really keep you on your toes otherwise a swift death can occur. There was enough boss battles to suffice however, some were relatively e z. The difficulty could also be raised, as the proffesional mode did not offer the challenge that I had hoped. Well, story wise, it was a bit goofy, and only had a little to contribute to the RE storyline, however, it was acceptable. Graphics wise it was generally alot better then average and then some, but the cutscenes and some jaggy parts could have been better. Overall, this game is definately worth the time to play.
