Heya Probester, I believe you're fairly new right? I've read some of your reviews, but I don't think I've said "Welcome to HG," yet.

So I just did.

Anyways, about this review... good effort here, you obviously take pains to be serious about the game and take a look at it from a long-time-fan perspective. To that end you come at it with a decent intro that offers an interesting stance: someone who was annoyed with RE4 who ended up liking RE5.

So what happened to change your mind? You never REALLY tell us. Instead you spend most of your review talking about controls and mechanics, something we could learn from an instruction booklet or probably even from wikipedia. Why didn't you stick with your original approach, and tell us HOW this game turned you from hater into lover?

That's the story I want to hear, the one only you can tell. I can't get THAT from an instruction manual (I might be able to get it from wiki, but it would be deleted pretty fast).

Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."
