I may be starting a pod cast at some point with my friend Alex. Oh and thanks to Amanda for referring some customers from her table at gameworks to my website... That makes her person of the month! Congratulations.

Lets have a chat

Some people criticize me for writing short reviews. When I read reviews I don't want to read 20 paragraphs about every little feature I want to know what the game is about and if its good or not, Then I decide if I want to buy it. No I do not write short reviews out of laziness I love writing reviews and hope to professionally write someday. Quit hating people.

Resident Evil 5

Sorry its been so long for this review but school is taking up a lot of my time.

Story: The game calls itself a survival horror game but do not be fooled, Its not scary... at all. The story is okay but kind of weak at parts. It tries to do a Metal Gear Solid 4 wrap up where it ties up all loose ends but it just doesn't do it right. Story: 7

Playability: Its a third person shooter in the same vein as gears of war but you can not move while shooting. Some people complain about that but I think it makes the game better as it adds a lot of intensity to it (intense and scary are way different in my book). The game has just about endless replayability due to a huge weapon list and the ability to upgrade said weapons. Playability: 10

Enjoyment: I played this game almost nonstop my first play through. I just couldn't bring myself to let the controller go. That being said I have to say I enjoyed Dead Space quite a bit more than Re5, It was scary, Had more upgrades, you can move while shooting, It was longer and had a way better story. Enjoyment: 9

Overall: This game is a must buy for action game fans and people who cant stop till they have upgraded every last thing. I love this game and have beaten it countless times. Go buy this game it rocks. Overall: 9
