Just a quick reminder to anyone who's been keen to check out the Xbox 360 demo for Resident Evil 5, which we reported
a little while ago would only be up exclusively for a short while.
We've already pulled it down and had a bit of a run through, and can tell you this is one of the most spectacular looking next-gen games out there. Controls are indeed something of a difference of opinion, and even Resident Evil 4 veterans (such as myself) are likely to feel there could have been compromise made here in certain areas (at least allowing the right stick to swing completely around the character to take in the visuals). Whichever way you look at it though, this is still an intense outing, and one definitely worth checking out.
It's early days yet though, and while each play through of the demo levels might be short, there does seem to be serious potential here for typical Res Evil craziness in bosses, action, weapons and terror. If you grab the demo, make sure you let us know what you think.
