Resident Evil 5 is only eight days away, and we imagine survival/horror fans are already on the edge of their seats, awaiting the momentous day.
And if you want another incentive for purchasing and beating the game, check out this Mercenary Mode video ; it shows you the action you will unlock upon completing the main adventure. Those who are familiar with previous entries in the franchise are well aware of such a mode: you get to revisit certain sections of the game and blast as many enemies as possible within a certain span of time. We imagine this isn't the only thing you unlock after beating RE5, but new modes always add to the longevity of any game, right? Of course, seeing this video is bound to re-spark the control debate, because many have already said, "hey, I could probably do a lot better at this Mercenary Mode if I could move and shoot at the same time." After all, you're going up against the clock and speed is of the utmost importance. But we figure that if you've already beaten the game, you've become comfortable with those "tank controls;" it also helps if you've played previous RE games, too. The bottom line is that if you enjoyed RE4, you'll likely enjoy RE5…and how many of you out there had fun with RE4? Lots of you, yes?
Anyway, it's always entertaining to blast away without the hindrances of plot or puzzles, and that's exactly what Mercenary Mode will give you. Have fun!
