I just think it plain sucks. Both of them.

Truth. And it's really irritating that they didn't fix the longevity issue with the sequel, isn't it?

So, SO wrong. The third one did kinda suck, but 4 and 5 are awesome. I haven't paid much attention to the spin-offs, although I do expect to get Operation: Raccoon City and the remastered Code: Veronica, as well as the remastered 4. And where's my fucking PSP one, Capcom? Hmm?

It takes mediocre bits from existing games and makes them into a larger mediocre game. It even tries to borrow Dead Space's atmosphere and put it in RE5's setting. They might as well have just tried to remake House of The Dead for all the new ideas it's got in it. I might pick it up when it's sub-10, because it's still a zombie game and therefore a required part of the collection.

And you forgot the zombie version of Red Dead Redemption, Undead Nightmare

1/12 Judas Priest
3/12 Deep Purple
5/12 Dan Patlansky
11/12 Dead Daisies
