No threads are going around for Resi-Evil 5, so what are your thoughts about the demo. Seeing as its coming out on friday has any reviews swung your deicison to buy Resi-Evil 5?
For me if it wasn't for GAME having them trade-in value books going around I would of most probably waited. I needed to get rid of some games which I don't play and some that I thought I would like turning to dislike them in the end. The demo of Resi-Evil 5 was good but wasn't enough to show what Resi-Evil 5 was going to be like. Its a survival horror shooter and Resi-Evil 5 has them.
Survival - Aim, shoot, run and continue process.
Horror - The 'infected' and the parasites plus the mini bosses.
Shooter - Aim, shoot and blowing heads off with the shot-gun.
When I played the demo there was no sense of that 'Resident-Evil feel' on which I got from the previous ones. I've read some reviews and it has swung my deicison to get it more sooner than I expected. I really think that the demo may of not shown all of what Resi-Evil 5 can do but there is something that is installed for us, I can just sense it.
Keep all Resident-Evil discussion in here and share your experiences and thoughts about the old Resi-Evils and to the run up of Res-Evil 5.
So, what are your thoughts about Res-Evil 5 and have you changed your opinion about it since the demo got released?

When I played Resident Evil on PS1 it was fresh and that helped mask some annoying design faults (illogical puzzles, those doors etc), I liked Resi 2 but then didn't get on with the rest of the series. I guess I'm just not a big Resident Evil fan.

I played the demo again earlier with my girlfriend, to remind myself of it. It's very good, but I don't know if I'll be getting it. I wouldn't want to play it non-co-op, that much I do know, as it is clearly designed to be played with someone else.
If it wasn't for MadWorld, I would probably choose it as my MOM prize. But I think unless something happens to allow me to afford it without blinking that I have other games ahead of it on the list right now.

I'd go with Madworld myself CheekyLee, though I'd warn you that everyone saying the downside is that it's a pretty short game.
However, most Resi fans seem to think its a good refinement on the series and I'm sure any fans of 4 will love this one.

I played the demo earlier with my family and my grand mum. And my Girl. Boyah!
Edit: that's a lie, I live alone.

Co-op is going to be brillant for Res-Evil 5. At first I had mixed feelings with Resi-Evil 5 playing it on my own. Then I went online and played it with a friend and its very good co-op wise.
Replayed the demo on singleplayer and its a thumbs up to be a good game to have in your collection, fan or no fan. I can see a rise on people having it when its lower in price.

The game split us right down the middle in the office. Tom loved it, of course, as you'll know from the review. For me though, I can't get past not being able to move and shoot. I know it's a Resident Evil thing and it's very unique to the series, but it's something that puts me off.
