    The AI isn't always terrible, it has some really dull moments. It can get pretty ridiculous though. It was probably the biggest letdown in the game.

    I take it back. The AI is so bad that it'll make you want to snap the disc in half. Also the fact that I tried to beat RE5 on Single Player on Veteran. The only problem is IT WON"T EVER KEEP MY DATA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I finished it on Veteran, ALL S rank and now it says I never finished it on Veteran.

    That's horrible. Were you playing with a friend? I heard that sometimes when you do this? It does not keep your data. When you go to contiue game, does it show that you can continue from where you last left off?

    I got to Chapter 3-1 on Veteran. Then I quit playing that for a couple days. Then I played Veteran on Co-op and finished it and it didn't say I finished it. Then I finished it on Veteran by myself and still didn't say that I finished it.

    Weird. I have been doing co-op off and on with my brother but it says that I have completed levels on veteran, even the ones I completed with him.

    Resident Evil 5 Versus Mode 400 Microsoft points. The thing is the download is only 1.86MB. Hmm, with it being that small of a download it sounds like its already on the disc. Does this sound like Capcom is ripping people off? It does to me.

    I have heard it is already on the disc and this basically just unlocks it. I also heard that it was having many problems already so anyone who is interested in this, I would stay clear for a couple days until it gets resolved.

    Yep it is already on the disk, it has to be at 1.86mb.

    I personally wouldn’t buy it for that reason alone, to me that’s a bit cheeky.

    But fair enough if you enjoy the game Capcom worked hard on it maybe they deserve a few extra £.

    I payed 60USD for this game, that should be more then enough. Same thing with Street Fighter IV too. The alternate costumes are already on the disc but you have to spend money just to use something on the disc? Thats ridiculous, greed has consumed Capcom.

    I agree Capcom is getting a little greedy. It's understandable that DLC like The Lost and Damned which is actuall an "add-on" can be charged at 1600, but you really should not have to shell out more money for somehing that I paid full price for and is already on the disc.

    I purchased it. Though I had lots of Microsoft points laying around. If I had 0 points and it was on the CD, I would of never. I can't believe they are actually doing such a thing. Though quick question, When playing in multi player mode. How do I unlock the other characters? Sorry, just I've not played much of it, Only the campaign.

    That Situation Sound familiar.

    You have to purchase new characters from the bonus menu like you would infinite ammo.

    Street Fighter is a great game though :D
    Resident Evil 5 is a bit too short, but it has lovely graphics.
    controls are a bit slow, but typical for resi.

    Personally, I would love a remake of Resident Evil 4 on the 360. I liked that one better than Resident Evil 5 I think.

    I agree with that 100%. I've been saying that for forever. I wish 4 was 5 and 5 was 4. So I could play Resident Evil 4 on 360. I played Resident Evil 4 and finished over 10 times but only finished Resident Evil 5 like 3 time despite that I've finished the game in about 3 hours and 30 minutes.

    Now that is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. They already make millions and they want more as soon as the game is released!

    I hate when developers release a game and then release DLC for it right after. It makes you wonder why the hell they don't just add the DLC to the full game and maybe release it oh I don't know, a day or two later.
