I got really excited when I saw they were releasing the next game in the series, and like any series, the games evolve. I love it so far...
The health system is great, you can now store the herbs in pill forms to divide up an herb for quick use, and you don’t have to use the whole plant now! The better the herb mixture (Red+Green) the more pills you can make from it.
The separate/intertwined storylines are great and very unique. Graphics and Sounds are amazing and really put you in the game. I love that they brought back a lot of characters and didn’t introduce too many new ones (and Sherry is back! All grown up).
The levels are long and enjoyable (to a certain extent), the co-op play is great to help with the tough spots (and believe me there are a lot of them in this game).
Co-Op play's partner call ("O" button) is a bit cumbersome.. difficult to call your partner while running and having to hold down "O" then the down arrow, or to thank holding down "O" and pressing L2 or R2.
Bosses, I am playing Normal difficulty and continually will get stuck at the numerous boss fights (like the ever changing/mutating boss Leon and Helena encounter... over and over again). I don’t remember having this many in any games past, but it does make it more rewarding when you take it down... only for it to come back again and AGAIN.
About-to-die resurrection, this is a great benefit... until you get help from your partner only to be taken down as soon as you get back on your feet, causing you to die instantly.
Saving, I don’t completely understand the save process in this game yet. It says if you die you continue at the last checkpoint. I experience that this is not always the case, if I had to end the game to go and do whatever, I would come back to the game only to find I have to go all the way back at the start of the level, causing a lot of replaying and frustration.
All in all, even though I mentioned a lot of cons, this game is really amazing. Great addition to the series that I hope will continue for many more to come. I highly recommend to any fan, at least to experience the ever evolving game series. Grade: A-
