    Change from horror but still great

    From survival horror, to nearly pure action. I still enjoyed this game.Adding co-op was actually an amazing touch. The game is good. But playing with a friend is what made this game great! I've never replayed a game as ... Read Full Review

    forced co-op and dated mechanics ruin this game.

    Resident Evil 5 tries to play off Resident Evil 4's success, but fails. There is no option to play this game solo. You have to play with either an a.i. controlled partner, or with a split screen local or online player... Read Full Review
