Resident evil 5

hey people ive got and xbox 360 and live so ive been able to download all the videos and the game demo!!! ive got to say that i quite enjoyed the game and it looks beautiful... the graphics are great and its a fun game to play...
my only quarrel is that :
1st its a slow moving game, i know its a resident evil game and there not big on running and shooting at the same time but im too used to being able to run and shoot but i can get around that i think...
2nd the inventory you have is a bit small... you can carry 9 items and when you are holding at least to guns (pistol and big gun,,rifle or machine gun) and ammo for both guns, thats 4 slots taken. then your herbs and other medicine, then a hand grenade (which are dump) and you very quickly run out of space...

but all in all its a good game and i think im gonna get it

so what does everyone else think of the game and are you gonna get it...

I have a rendezvous with death, At some disputed barricade, it may be that he shall take my hand, and lead me into his dark land, and close my eyes and quench my breath, I have a rendezvous with death, and i to my pledged word am true, i shall not fail that rendezvous...

I won't remove the thread. This is an example of how Heresy members should not act toward other forum members, and seriously, don't pull the free speech bullshit. You're free to say what I allow you to say.

Thing on the inventory is it is going back to Resident Evil 1-3 style where you can only carry so much on you. RE5 is also going to have you running around with 2 people most of the time so you in theory have 18 slots(9 on the other char)

RE5 should be a good game. The Demo showed a lot of promise for it.

I just played the demo and this game looks great IMO. I don't have a problem with the inventory for one reason; if we take RE4 as a precedent, we can assume that most of the puzzles in the game won't require more then 1-2 inventory slots, which lives 7 for you to load up with guns n ammo.

One thing that has always pissed me off about the RE series, however, is how grossly misrepresented Shotguns are. When you fire them in the game, they hit everything in front of you, without exception. In RE4 and RE5, it's roughly the same, as the spread of shot is way too big for a shotgun. I would prefer that they functioned akin to real-life shotguns; causing mass trauma by inflicting horrific damage in a small area. So it would only affect one target, but the damage caused would be tremendous.
