Resident Evil 5 review

Reviewed April 19, 2009

Gary Hartley says: "It’s fine with me when the game starts to segue into cut scenes built right off the previous game’s frantic war against biological experiments gone wrong and hunting for brains, but it seems to go jarringly against what they tried to do with the last outing. For those of you out there who started the series at 4, prepare to be confused."

Zigfried says: "Throughout the first chapter — while trying to escape an entire city that hated me, while hiding in dark corners and climbing walls to escape the bloodthirsty masses — Resident Evil 5 provided a heart-pounding, frightening, and thoroughly playable adventure with some disturbing real-world implications. I knew these people weren't evil, just sick... but I killed them anyway. I had to kill them to survive — they were bursting through ceilings, climbing through windows, hiding behind fences. By the end, I was shooting everyone on sight, and feeling pleasure. Heaven help me if there was an actual innocent soul wandering the streets."

Fiddlesticks says: "These tone-downs in difficulty actually serves as more of a reason to keep playing than not, surprisingly, and you’ll come to find that even though the main quest in 5 isn’t long at all, there are still plenty of reasons to continue playing long after you’ve fired an RPG right into Wesker’s face . . . as he’s melting in a pool of lava . . . inside of a gigantic volcano . . . shouting at the top of his lungs, “CHRIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!”"
