Haven't played RE5 yet, but from what my friends have told me is that RE4 > RE5

Well yeah, I beat both, and I have to say I enjoyed RE4 more than RE5.

Darn it you beat me to it. I was thinking about making a RE4vsRE5 thread.

Anyways, I find both games to be equally fun.

4 is an inferior game.

It's really a tough call. Leon's a better leading man, Sheva's a better partner, 4's a better story, Wesker's a better big bad...

One thing I really missed was the volume of QTEs in 4. Those were actually well-done, and kept you on your toes during the cutscenes. The only time 5 felt like it reached that same level was the short run in the underground temple, on the tanker in 6-2, and the in-between phase with Wesker.

I like them both, but i will say at the beggining 4 was actually a little scary/creepy at times (that damn chanting creeped me out). While 5 never was

In RE5, you can finally kick Wesker's ass. You have no idea how long fans have been waiting to get that guy.

In RE4, Ashley was a real pain. She couldn't fight back and she keeps getting grabbed by enemies and gets taken away. Now in RE5, your partner can fight alongside with you (if you can get over the fact that she shoots your ass for a few times through each level) so RE5 wins best partner.

Better cast of villains I will have to give to RE4 because Krauzer and the Big Cheese were awesome. Excellia I don't call an awesome villain because it isn't the first time I've seen a woman that had a lust for power and gets incredibly annoying.

The inventory I'm obviously giving to RE4. Why Capcom didn't move that to RE5 is beyond me.

Most attarctive women I'm giving to RE4 because Ada in that red dress is one of the many reasons people buy the game.

Best weapons. Again, RE4.

Best story plot I'm giving to RE4.
Presidents daughter kidnapped > Trouble in Africa

Best boss battles I'm going to give this a tie.

Best enemy AI. Again, tie.

Best main character. Chris wished he was as awesome as Leon.

RE4 retained some spooky elements from it's predecessor.
The zombified enemies in RE4 looked freakier, the pale white look and the continuous chanting just added to that effect.

RE5 wasn't scary at all. I did like the idea of having a partner that can actually fight, but Ashley being unable to fight gave you a tougher time to battle your way out of the game, which I like.
The more difficult the game is, the more thrilling the game becomes.
At least for me, because I like difficult games. RE4 was more challenging, and I prefer it more than RE5.

How Capcom didn't make part 5 as awesome as 4 is an incredible mystery. I'm not saying RE5 sucks, it's just that it doesn't live up the hype as RE4.

That would explain this game's near downfall. I now fear what will happen to Resident Evil 6.

What downfall? It's a critically acclaimed game that's a ton of fun to play and it selling well. Sounds like a success to me.

I actually find the series does well with a more action based stance, it was more fun to me then 4 but 4 was more compelling

4 was better at telling its story, with a more entertaining main character, is pretty much it.

4 is the better simply because it's more consistent. RE5 was great before the enemies got guns and it implemented some dinky cover system and started playing like a 3rd rate Gears of War clone.

In the end 5 came across like it didn't know what it really wanted to be. And that's too bad, had they just kept it going as it was for the first 2/3rds it would have been much better.

RE5 got me to play a Resident Evil game for the first time since the very first game, so I have to give it that, at least...stick out tongue
