My husband and I love this game. It is great if you like to play the campaigns together. What I like is that you can start the game alone but if you have a friend that wants to join in you start at the same level, you do not have to reset the game! It is a must buy if you love to play with a friend at home. Right up there will Resistance (the first one). In addition, it is a fairly long game so you get your money’s worth. The only thing is that this game is a little scary for the little ones so I would not recommend it for anyone under 13.

Ok, let me get this out of the way, I have played both the 360 and PS3 version through the first couple of chapters. I don’t see a difference, both versions look fantastic!! This is an absolutely beautiful game on either system, I purchased the PS 3 version because I am still, and always be a fan of the Dualshock controller, I guess you could call me a dualshock fanboy.
Ok some reviewers hammered home the comparisons to RE 4, and that’s fair, apparently Capcom didn’t want to stray from what worked for them and RE 4 was a runaway hit. I like that the game “feels” familiar but different at the same time. I played the demo a lot to get a handle on the controls, because we can all agree that they take a bit of adjustment from other 3rd person games. I know for the purity of the game Capcom decided to leave the run and gun aspect out of it, but I can’t tell you how many times I wish I could pull a Gears of War tactic out of my a$$ during some of the more intense encounters, but after adjusting to the RE frame of mind I adapted quickly.
The story has enough cheese in it to keep me happy, I am perfectly happy with the story, my level of escapism with the game was just right, I don’t need a life altering story to make me love a game.
I can’t recommend this game enough, it is perfect for me in many ways. In my opinion it deserves my 5 Star rating.

add me for some co-op! I am trying to get more friends on PSN!
I am adding that the inventory/cash system is ridiculous lol. You can literally farm levels for cash, ammo, weapons and treasures over and over and over…
I still love the game though, online co-op is amazing.

FOR THE FANS OF RESIDENT EVIL 4: This is about the best sequel to RE4 that you could hope for. The graphics are excellent. It has a lot of big guns and intense action, and it adds co-op play to the mix. The controls have been slightly enhanced, as this new installment mirrors some of the tweaks that games such as Gears of War and Dead Space have added to the template RE4 created back in 2005. However, you cannot move and shoot, and you may be a tinge disappointed with the fact that neither Leon or the Merchant return. If that’s what you wanted to find out, you can stop reading now.
Are they gone? Good. Now it’s just us in the room.
You guys remember Resident Evil. You remember the exploration, the emphasis on limited ammo and weaponry, the 3D characters against static backgrounds with jarring camera angles to heighten tension. You remember the scares, the jumps… the “Survival Horror”. And if you remember RE4, then you remember that you’ve already had to kiss all that goodbye.
You also remember the storyline. You remember the evil, faceless Umbrella corporation. You remember battling with all of their insane Bio-Organic Weapons, monsters and zombies. You remember how each subsequent installment in the series was crescendoing to a final showdown with Umbrella, all while revealing more and more mysteries about the elusive company. You remember the ending of Code Veronica, which was set up as a lead-in to that aforementioned final confrontation with the next sequel. And you also remember that sequel was RE4, which flushed that whole entire plotline down the toilet in the very opening cut sequence. Let’s recap.
RE:CV Ending/Chris Redfield: “It’s payback time. We’ve got to destroy Umbrella. Now, let’s finish this once and for all!” – The jet shoots off into the sunset, the credits roll.
RE4 opening: Umbrella went bankrupt and was destroyed, here’s something else.
Well, gee. That was pretty anti-climactic.
