FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

What do these ratings mean?

There should only be 1 mode for this game - arcade mode. After playing the game, i realise the only thing that i had been doing is replenishing bullets, shoot and advance. If anyone were to tell me this is a Role Playing Game then i believe i have taken on the role of a mindless robot on a mission to kill all zombies.

Fans of R.E will certainly remember the old days of rummaging through Raccoon City and other installments trying to figure out the next move (could be opening a damn door or vault for that matter). This installment will disappoint you big time with it's "mystery" so easy you can shoot yourself if you can't solve it.

rn

We had love R.E for

rn

- the adequate complexity involved in solving the game

rn

- The plot

rn

- The freedom to move about

rn

- the scariness of it.

rn

Which R.E 5 has failed miserably.

rn

Everything in this game is so fixed the only variation you get is choosing between Route A(has extra bullets) and Route B(doesn't have bullets) which lands you in the same space anyway. You never feel lost, you never crack your brains solving anything.

rn

The scariness is gone too. Totally. These zombies ain't the ones you fear but ones that feel more like pests sticking on you waiting to be blasted aside.In previous installments, You  run through empty cities searching for answers only to hear light moans elsewhere scarin the **** out of you. Now you see zombies almost in every corner running, talking, shouting, asians,blacks, and i wouldn't be surprise if in the name of variation they created a zombie scratching his crotch.

rn

The plot is thrown right at your face, they tell you what's going on, you are left with your partner now please survive the ordeal. The success behind games like MGS and previous installments of R.E lies in it's ability to keep you on a thread while you go through the game only to discover bits and pieces along the way. There's nothing to discover in this game except bullets.

rn

Last but not least, the aiming mechanism is so crappy that i had considered using knife throughout the entire game.

rn

I can summarise the game as this:

rn

Go A-> Shoot the zombies, find bullets to replenish

rn

Go B-> Find the 5 missing pieces to open that door located at location 1,2,3,4,5.(really! 5 missing pieces in 5 location and we make them real shiny so you won't miss them too!)

rn

Repeat till the game is over.
