remember, walking with a knife is a secret military move that no one in RE5 knows how to do

I wouldn't say that is its problem at all, actually I think it controls worse on a pad. The problem is it is designed for slow-paced movement but the action is fast-paced.

:: RE5 controls take a bit to get used to. Still I found it great fun. Awesome graphics and runs well on most systems.

Bioshock 2's DX10 is same what it was in first Bioshock? I couldn't find anything but knew what DX10 effects were in first game which was pretty much minor.

The DX10 effects are the same in Bioshock 2.

I can't stand RE5. I barely played 30minutes of it. I don't if its the controls or the day settings of RE5 puts me off. I guess I need to not think of this game as any part of the Resident Evil series.

The complaints everybody has about the controls in RE5 is primarily about one thing: You can't move while firing.

If you're okay with that, there's nothing wrong with the controls. And once you get over that tiny obstacle of getting used to the controls (which shouldn't take more than 5 minutes), you'll get a pretty darn fun shooter which happens to be very unique and different than any other shooter out there. It also has a ridiculously fun bonus mode after you complete it.

RE5 control mechanics are many many times worse than Dead Space. You can't turn around when you reload ffs, who comes up with dumb ideas like that?

Good looking game though.

Resident Evil 5 is more than worth it, even for full price. Steam sale price is a steal!

Heck, the PC Mercinaries mode itself (three times more enemies) is worth it!

Gamepad highly recommended.

Well, I just spent $49. Thank you Steam.

I bought all four DLC packs for Defense Grid, Dark Fall: Lost Souls, The Whispered World, and a pack containing Saira, Bob Came in Pieces, Crayon Physics Deluxe, Plain Sight and Blueberry Garden (mostly just wanted it for the first two).

Indie games FTW.

I agree CaptN. Fate of Atlantis was an epic game.
