I can't believe there isn't a current thread about this game.
I'll assume it's because my fellow game addicts are busy playing.

The ability to not walk mindlessly into laser beams while hogging my ammo is a must.
For anyone who hasn't picked it up yet...

Aww, I want it so bad! But, I don't have a PS3
Would love to play with you Dan!
got. to. get. this. GAME!
looks beautiful and the demo was a lot of fun.
Just beat it with a friend on co op. WAY too much fun. Can't wait to go through it again! This game never got boring,. Brilliantly paces action. Cut scenes were short and sweet, not overdone (looking at you, MGS4).
Just a blast to play through, especially with a buddy.

I was hearing bad things about the controls but I put it on the Resident Evil 4 style and have had no problems. I've been playing with my brother, who has never played an RE game before. Lots of "Oh shit! Run! Run!" going on.
I played the demo and sucked righteously.
Then again I just suck at shooters.
The game is awesome, I just picked it up last week. It has gorgeous graphics and if you know someone to play it with co-op, it rocks. Theres nothing like blasting away hordes of zombies about to jump on your partners back. Shotgun rocks, by the way.
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

I've heard a lot of "meh" things about it. For the most part I've heard 3 main complaints: 1) controls are way too similar to RE4, not really improved at all. 2) the AI for your team mate is very unhelpful and frustrating, and 3) the infamous accusations of racism (but come on it's in Africa, only like 10% of the population is white)
discussion about this.
Some people bitch about the controls and I think thats just silly, the only real problem with the game is the friendly A.I. I didn't have a problem when I was playing as Chris, but after I beat it I started playing again as Sheva and Chris is a friggin moron.
The cover mechanic was also a felt a little slapped on but not so much so that it detracts in any way from the overall experience. If I were to rate the game I would give it somewhere around 95%.
I LOVE the mercenaries minigame though, that by itself would have been worth like $60 for me.
Ah I didn't see that one. But come on there wasn't even one black zombie in Left 4 Dead and I didn't hear a big controversy about Louis killing a bunch of savage white people haha
Yes. I think it's based on political correctness. Genocide of dark skined people happened in history, so touching on it is touchy. But it's actually no different to killing Spanish people in Resident Evil 4, and none of this has anything to do with nationality anyway.
But seriously how awkward would it be if you were the white guy working on resident evil 5 that always had to ask the angry black guy working there how stuff was going
"so Steve.....you get done rendering those models of the crazy black tribe guys?...we uh...kinda want to make sure it looks alright when they uh...throw spears...and uh...some of the playtesters were complaining that they were SO black that when they yelled franticly they just looked like floating teeth...sooooo....yeah...just get back to me when ya can that'd be great...Oh! also some of the guys in the office are picking up lunch, we were thinking about getting some kentucky frie- never mind...."
