Well, a very enthusiastic review, but one I'm in almost total disagreement with. By the way, zombies have ridden trucks, fired gattling guns, and displayed intelligence before. It was called Resident Evil 4.

I haven't played RE5 and I can't remember much about RE4, so I can't say whether I agree with this review or not. What I can say is that I enjoyed reading it. True's enthusiasm for the game is obvious, but never excessive (apart from the final line perhaps). He doesn't really deal in specific gameplay issues -- well, he does, but the focus is more on expressing his personal experience of the adventure and explaining how RE5 met and surpassed his expectations. For me, that was an approach that resulted in a very engaging and convincing review.

Thank you, Janus and thank you Zipp. That sentenced you mentioned was more a reference to old-school RE Zombies that were slow, stuck their arms out and moaned like a hoarse porn-star. In my mind, the Ganados and the Majini are pretty much the same thing in a different location, but I could see where it caused some confusing so I changed it.

I think you deserve special mention for the enthusiasm you show in your review. You actually made me question if I hadn’t enjoyed myself more than I thought I had while playing the game. However, the piece came off a little too much like a blog post for me. There are some points EVERYONE complains about (such as Sheva’s AI) that you seemed to have no problem with, further adding to the feeling like it might be a slanted review, and there’s a whole section of one or two sentence paragraphs that reads very awkwardly. Still, I respect a reviewer who pronounces his love (or hatred) loudly from atop a tall tower, and no one stands taller than True.

The only problem almost everyone seems to proclaim about Sheva's AI is that she's far too keen to heal you. Even this is more more 'in passing' complaint that a substantial one.
