Disagree here. RE5 has much more story than LP2. The crux of the problem with LP2 is that unlike in LP1 where you follow Wayne's story, in LP2, you're just controlling different characters on different squads for each mission and thus you never have any reason to connect with any of the characters. There's also no over-arching plot or anything that ties them together at the end, either.

Now that said, frankly, I've always thought RE stories are a load of crap. You play for the scares, and in that dept., RE5 is a disappointment.

IMHO, Dead Space is the RE of this generation; it does RE better than RE5.


RE5 areas were kinda a huge drag for me and people i talked to. The most thing people complain about is not being able to shoot while walking or running. You can get used to it but the replay on this game for achievements and unlocking everything is a huge chore and it gets so boring after you beat a mission 2-3 times. Playing RE5 solo is so boring and finding someone willing to play this with you is slim to none. You can jump into random games but enjoy playing with these people and good luck...

LP2 is 4 player co op or dm type stuff and it really is an amazing game when playing even with random people on it. I rarely ever come across some rude person doing stuff to annoy people like in halo and other games. It is a nice community with people actually helping as in team work which most games have a lack of these days.

LP2 worth $40 what i paid for it still it is a great game.

RE5 is worth about $10 and good luck finding someone willing to play with you. If they agree expect them to maybe make it through a 15-30 min level then leave you and not play it again for months or even longer.

I was able to snag a copy for roughly the same price at GameStop (normally $17.99 used), but apparently used copies are difficult to find. I've also seen used copies in the $15-ish range on Amazon.

I haven't played it myself yet, but the impression I get is that if you are in the mood for a faux-retro game that unabashedly rips off old-school Zelda (all very blatantly and lovingly), it's totally worth $15. Has that really quirky awesome 3-D voxel/pixel art style, makes tons of super-geeky gamer in-jokes, etc.

I played through re 5 with 3 different and very willing friends so to the guy who said you won't find friends to play with is making assumptions and could be wrong depending on your friends. Me and my friends all loved re5 and I did not know about cheap games when it came out so we paid 60 a piece

Resident Evil 5's highlight for me is Mercenaries mode. I STILL break that out with my gaming buddy all the time. It's fantastic fun. The game's mechanics work so well for it.

Compared to RE4, it's not really a good game. It's like Viewtiful Joe 2 compared to VJ1. The second team had no idea what made the first game work. Campaign is just garbage. Mercs is still fun though.

Lost Planet 2? Hated it from top to bottom. It has a few decent moments and some clumsy, really awful attempts at massive co-op set pieces, but the resulting game is just poorl

Dang. Mortal Kombat's $2 more on Playstation. Presumably you need the better d-pad?

Wha!? The ending of the game is the epitome of an over-arching plot that ties multiple characters together! I will agree though that there's a lack of attachment to the characters, personally though I see that as a good thing... as much as I enjoy playing Capcom games, I've yet to find one I haven't found to be hokey.

I've heard that's not really better? That Microsoft (inexplicably) didn't seem to understand what's wrong?

I'm not even sure if you use the d-pad for this, or the stick...so maybe it doesn't matter?

Oh I should just buy the Playstation one, but for some reason $15 feels more expensive to my brain than $12.99 :lol:
