This is game is well....interesting.
GR hit it right on the nose...great gameplay and plot but it seems more like a "okay, I got lost in the woods and there's rabid bunnies chasing after me that I have to shoot" then an actual survival-horror. The visual effects are excellent, even the co-op mode is great(sometimes too great as your partner seems to be very selfish when it comes to picking items); but it doesn't even play like a Resident Evil game.
Is it worth your money? Definitely, great re-playability factors as well. Should it be called Flubby Bunny Hunting 5 instead of Resident Evil 5? Also a definite yes.
Great game, missing the "Resident Evil" theme. Only slightly disappointing, hopefully the next game in this series is much SCARIER! Mwaahahaha.
