Resident Evil 5
Released March, 2009
The Pros:Online co-op is a major new addition to the RE franchise. Co-op partners helping each other out works well. Fantastic graphics.
The Cons:No pausing while managing inventory can be too stressful. Archaic controls feel pretty bad (can't aim and move at the same time). Although irrelevant for many, the use of a laser only makes it quite difficult aiming if you're colour-blind.
Known in Japan as Biohazard 5, Resident Evil 5 is the first of the Resident Evil series to allow cooperative play for the full storyline, including both online and offline. This is a fantastic feature for households with one console and more than one game enthusiast.
