Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 June 2022
I love the SE series of games and have completed 2,3 and 4 to Platinum trophy level.

It's a tried and trusted successful formula and SE5 delivers more of the same and does not vary much from the other games, although the campaign levels are significantly larger and to a degree, less linear. Graphics are detailed and pleasing.

A couple of issues with the character animation - it seems a bit slack after pressing triangle to interact there is an appreciable delay to the action being completed to the extent where I have wondered if my initial button press had registered?! Personally I find it a shame that you can no longer kill enemy soldiers by shooting a grenade on their belts, however blow up a soldier and his tin hat can end up yards away which is quite cool!

Axis Invasion is an interesting addition to the game although I suspect people will only try each mode once just to get the achievement.

I have not tried multiplayer yet, although I have completed the Campaign on Authentic difficulty - quite a challenge! I played Multiplayer extensively on SE4 but I don't really feel tempted on this as the movement is a bit to clunky for my liking.

Overall I love the game though and for me it has replay value as those killcam shots/explosions are sooooo satisfying.
