Sheva, come on, hurry!!!
4 August 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Short review Is it a bad game, no. Is it disappointing to fans, yes. I fortunately wasn't a fan, and found this game to be loads of fun. I have put in a lot of time playing through the story, mainly just for farming loot. Once you get an fully upgraded Magnum with unlimited ammo, then the game is a breeze. That gun kills every thing. And you can also give Sheva the Desert Eagle. While it is fun playing with these weapons, it does ruin any sense of threat or difficulty. And I never had any problem with the partner's A.I., lucky for me I guess. There are plenty of unlocks to be had, and collectors items to be found, so it adds to the replay value. Of course there is the online co-op, I've never tried it. And lastly the mercenaries mode, pretty much just a horde mode type game-play, it's still fun.

The game is really goofy and over the top, but the game play is fun, and it's fun to watch ( Xcal and Waldo-dude). There are plenty of oh sh-t! moments during combat. It isn't all that bad, surely not as bad as RE6 anyways. I like it, that's all I have to say.

Chris need more protein.
