Re: Resident Evil 5 Demo

lol, yeah I have no idea what the fuss over the controls are. Sure it isn't perfect but in reality I didn't find any problems with it. Even if all those other faggots keep whining about not being able to run and gun. I played it, and I have to say even though it took me 5 times before I managed to finish a level (online).

The only thing I have to complain about playing co-op online is that sometimes your partner is an idiot. Those 5 times that I failed, my partner kept hogging up all the ammo. Therefore I would run out and get killed. Then, I managed to find a more decent partner and we ending passing the level with the chainsaw zombie. Although I did screw up once when I accidently shot a barrel near him/her and almost killing him/her. Well I should say him since I was the girl in this one.

I felt that the stages could have been a little bit longer but they served their purpose of being a tease for the main game. However is it me or for the 360 did the controls feel really weird to anyone else at first?

You'll get your merchants, if they have gold in the game to collect then chances are there will definitely be merchants to buy weapons off of.

Also on the subject of if Sheeva dies you die, Well seeing as how both her and Chris are the main characters in the game, what the hell did you expect? To continue the game without her or do you just not like the idea of being tied down to a partner throughout the entire game?

I know I sure don't.....honestly when I heard about this whole co-op thing, I thought you would be mainly solo during the game and only during certain points you were be in co-op mode(like the escort missions in Resident Evil 4) however if they did that I guess the online Co-op wouldn't work....I can expect getting pissed off at a lot of my partners online getting killed before me.

Re: Resident Evil 5 Demo

The difficulty has been put up more than RE4 I can say that but the controls are mainly the same. The changing weapons on the fly is annoying as hell especially when your crowded. And the very limited Ammo is a drag.

Re: Resident Evil 5 Demo

Everybody hates the demo for stupid controls and outdated gameplay.
Capcom is considering tweaking the controls, but that'll just screw up the difficulty considering they built the game around craptastic controls. And of course, people aren't reasonable enough to accept a patch.

Anyway, I'm gonna play it right now :D

Re: Resident Evil 5 Demo

It seems harder than RE4, this slight difficulty increase is a good thing.

Re: Resident Evil 5 Demo

Personaly i dont mind the controls it took me about 4 palythroughts to get used to it. After that its pretty automatic.
Although i kept gettin the 'run' and 'item' buttons mixed up since they switched it.
I beat the 2 on Single player but not online co-op the people im with arnt good and im doing all the work. The AI sheeva does better. But what do you expect its the first day.

The chainsaw guy(2nd lvl) took a while run back and forth. The blood was a little wierd you could tell it was overly animated.

Re: Resident Evil 5 Demo

Well the Demo Was ok.
Can't wait to play the real thing.
I'm ok with the controls since it's new and it's fun.
Though I died two times before I actually beat one of the levels (online)
The controls were confusing at first because I was Switching the items and ammo around.
It's a little more difficult and well is it me or is it just more slower to move around when aiming?

Re: Resident Evil 5 Demo

The switching ammo is what killed me the most during both bosses. I had to have a friend come over to kill the chainsaw guy and killed him faster when I found out that you can hit him twice if the second person goes near him and hits him immediately after the first person hits him.

Re: Resident Evil 5 Demo

I loved the demo honestly.
Personally I played the Xbox 360 demo at a friends house a couple days before the demo came out on the PSN store yesterday so the controls for me weren't that hard to get used to on the Ps3.

I didn't really have a problem with the controls, the only thing I have a problem with was having to hold down the left stick to run rather than move it forward all the way. It would also be nice to have a quick turn around feature, because if you're trying to out run a shit load of guys or if I just need make a quick turn it would make not getting randomly smacked with a weapon easier.

The lack of ammo wasn't really a problem for me either considering after every bullet I shoot or knife swipe I make I use the reaction commands for hand to hand combat. Shooting exploding barrels as well as fire ones also saves on ammo and really helps during both demo samples when they're trying to swarm from all directions.

My only gripe with this demo so far is playing with sucky players considering they get stuck in a corner and you have to go and save them in a mass of infected which pretty much gets you killed in the process, that and I'd like an option to be able to play with people on my friends list rather than random people. Also in the actual game having the ability to talk on the headsets would help too, but I don't know if they'll do that :/

I honestly went through both areas without dying once and never had to start over, in the area with the chainsaw I had a guy who knew how to play the game as well as I did so we were on the same page and even though in the survival I had a guy who didn't really know how to play at least they didn't die and because I managed to get to them in time.

My final comment would be that I rather enjoy playing with Sheeva of the two. She's a bit faster, she has a wider variety of combat options and she can stab people on the ground which is something Chris can't do :/

YES they will let you do that when you go to co-op online there is an option that you can change who you can play with and one says 'Play with poeple ONLY on your friends list' and you CAN also use mics i dont know how but i played with some people who used them.

Re: Resident Evil 5 Demo

If so, I wouldn't know I'll have to try because the fact that they turn around so slow is pathetic also after reading several of the comments on Gamefaqs about the demo I don't understand why they didn't give us the ability to move and shoot.

Well thank you for clearing that up, if there's anyone who wants to hope on a game on the PS3 version just send me a message here or on PSN if you already have me added.

Re: Resident Evil 5 Demo

Well I guess they wanted to keep a little original feel of Resident Evil.

Yeah Look in the loading screen and it shows how to quick turn.
Plus, I hate the most that they have to move so slow to aim somewhere else.

Plus I do too have PS3.
So Yeah I'm open for uh some co-op.

Ok I downloaded it around 10:30, and it was hard as hell killing the axe man, and the chainsaw enemy as well on the demo.

I played first with the CP and then with my friend and I rather human than CP by far. Its fun when you actually have someone who knows how to double team properly.
