Resident Evil 5 Demo Impressions

by Paul

So I downloaded the Resident Evil 5 demo the other night on the 360 and I have to say I was very impressed. It takes a lot for me to be impressed in a Resident Evil game, because I’ve never really cared for them. I’m not sure why, but I’ve never really gotten into that type of game play.

This demo was great based simply on the co-op. I didn’t really find a whole lot that hasn’t been done before, but what what is there works. You each start with a pistol and a different second weapon. Both players then take on the odd non-zombie, zombies. At certain points one player can assist another like hoisting the other up to a ladder or helping the other player jump further. You can also share items, which comes in extremely handy if you are playing with someone who isn’t super greedy. I ended up passing my grenades to my buddy since I was having a tougher time getting into and out of the item management screen, whereas he’s been playing Resident Evil forever.

All in all, I’d say that based upon this demo the game is going to be worth a purchase. Even if you don’t like the Resident Evil series that much, if you’re a fan of co-op gaming you’ll want to check this one out.

And don’t worry PS3 fans, you won’t be left out of the Resident Evil demo goodness forever. It will hit Sony’s system next week.
