So ı finished playing as sheva after a long while. Out of my curiosity, ı replayed re5 with her and to my surprise, ı enjoyed playing as her more than ı was remembering. It was overall similar as playing chris, though ı decided to rely on longbow and ı enjoyed using that weapon. She's also more faster than chris with faster melee moves though ı dont find her melee attacks as impacful as chris' punches. Still it was quite fun.
Honestly after playing as her, ı can safely say that ı think re5 is better than re4, particularly chris' scenario compared to leon's. However ı still get underwhelmed from jill's dlcs. I prefer separate ways over jill's short stories. I still wished they gave jill a more proper scenario. Rerev could have been this but it changes the playable characters during the story. If it was more akin to rerev2 where claire and barry would get their own episodic scenarios, then ı think ı would have liked it more.
I also relied on a trainer to change melee attacks. I dont like arm stun melee attacks in re5 so ı modified those to different ones. It feels hard to downright impossible to perform finishers constantly on majinis with aı partner, with the trainer, it became much more possible and easier to do so.
I can see myself going back to replaying the game now. It's been a while, ı dont have as many hours on re5 compared to re4 and re6.
