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.
