Rather fun, took AC6 and added stuff to it. The non assisted view is a pain in the ass to use some times.

Yea, that non assisted view sucks. Pretty much kept me from buying it... so far anyway. Might get it later when I have a video game hiatus or something.

+1 I couldn't believe that's actually considered a hardcore feature or something. It's annoying as shit at best, and makes me feel like I'm playing the little planes in Combat on the 2600 at the worst.

The only thing I found it useful for is when I have a bandit on me and I need to air drift the son of a bitch other than that it's a pain in the ass and you don't get as much xp if you don't use non-assist mode.

Google, mother fucker, can you use it?

You have flight assists on or off. When you have it off you're able to have more control over the plane. You're stuck with the most terrible view in this mode though which is zoomed a long way out from the plane, but not from directly behind the plane at all. Ever. It's always some ridiculous unhelpful angle like from the rear quarter and from completely unhepful heights relative to your plane. It makes doing a simple loop a head-ache inducing mess and working out if you're pointed close to the direction of an enemy to get a lock a complete guessing game.

I have no desire to buy the game after playing the demo.

I thought RE5 wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. The controls are so fucked up to use and the gun sights never automatically aim so you lose all sorts of time when you are being bombarded by the infected.

last one i had was falcon 4.0 or something like that. it was real good. hard, though, unless you put your plane on indestructible and unlimited ammo mode.

I'm puzzled as to why they fucked with it so much. I mean, kudos to them for not resting on their laurels and keeping the game fresh...but RE4 was considered by many to be one of the best games ever. I wouldn't think the next installment would need much more than minor tweaks to the gameplay.

My dad was pissed that you no longer can pause and go into an attache case.

That doesn't always mean much though. They've been wrong many times before and like some games that I'd call garbage.

One thing I love about this generation of consoles is the ease of getting demos. If you can't rent a game, you can quickly go check out a demo and see for yourself if the 6.7 score is justified.

Which IMHO for this game, I can see it.

i dont know if id say many. the only game i can really think of off the top of my head that they gave a high score to that i wasnt crazy about was gears of war. most of the time i think their reviews are pretty accurate. i read reviews from other sites too, but igns always the first one i go to.

yeah, and i like not having to buy strategy guides or call the frigging nintendo power hotline like in the old days when you need help with a certain game. just go online and you can find everything you need in a few seconds. :talon2:

I don't think any game deserves a 10. You can always find a way a game could be better. Especially that one.
