    If you have X360 controller, you will definitely like it. No doubt about that. But the game is a survival horror. If you shoot a whole round of bullets at one zombie you will regret it. And if you think that you can ram into every one and shott'em, no it's not. You have to run away from the zombie to a safe distance and should start shotting them. Initially when i played RE4, i hated it because of the slow character control and gunplay. But later, i found the tip and haven't laid the controller till i have completed game. I doubt RE5 will be enjoyable as RE4.

    In terms of horror it's now way near to F.E.A.R. That's for sure. You'll not be feared by the creepy sounds or the red dressed girl or a flesh eating man. In RE you'll fear as you are running out of ammo or your health or by a mass group of zombies. And if you have decent skills in the gaming there will be nothing to be feared.

    FEAR isn't much big of a horror as compared to Dead Space. Damm game almost make me drop off my chair!

    Although Resident Evil 5 is already in X360 & PS3 but the PC version will bring some of the additional goodies to it.
    Yes this is not as good as RE4 but heck it does have an eye candy & worth playing 3-4 times.

    The best fearful game I had ever played is nosfearatu. Man it's just soo awesome that
    I just cannot compare any other game with it :p

    I've played RE4 & it's sluggish control system was a annoying experience for me. Why they don't make this games control like max payne ( or any other TPP game ). So you can control your character with a mouse flawlessly.

    If this control system will be solved in RE5 then I may consider buying it :p
