RE5’s Co-Op Play

Resident Evil 5 just demonstrated a few new levels for their game right as they gave the release date (March 13th 2009).  It included all the standard Resident Evil stuff.  There are mobs of crazed enemies and lots of intense running and fighting.  The graphics are sharp too.  That’s really all I can say.  They didn’t try to reinvent the wheel with this one so it doesn’t seem like much has changed from RE 4.

The one cool addition was Co-Op play.  The two demonstrations featured Chris Redfield and Sheva Alomar.  You will have a AI partner for single player with some hope for a good Co-Op game.  The big bonus was how intuitive the AI was.  Chris could order Sheva to help secure objectives or pick up ammo, but she would often act in a fairly intelligent manner on her own.  The AI seems competent in battle which should keep this from falling into babysitting duty.  There are plenty of gimmicky partner stuff too, but I think the big draw should be just how well they’ve advanced the AI for a good partner shooter.
