Product Description

Platform: PC | Edition: Standard Edition

Manufacturer's Description

The sequel to one of the most critically acclaimed games of recent years is finally here and the world of survival horror will never be the same again. Chris Redfield and new partner Sheva Alomar must face a new menace in Africa, as they take on an even more bizarre range of monsters and mutants.
Series regular Chris Redfield teams up with new girl Sheva
Not only can enemies use weapons but they can also drive
The new enemies are faster than zombies and cleverer than ganados
Now you've got two people to worry about - yourself and your partner

The first Resident Evil for the new generation of consoles doesn't just improve the quality of the graphics but also the abilities of the enemies. No longer do you face off against slow moving zombies, but instead mutated humans who will anticipate your actions and even set-up barricades to block your exits.

To combat this new menace you not only have a permanent onscreen partner but a wide range of more athletic moves, including dodges and the ability to take cover behind any piece of scenery. The biohazards are evolving yet again - and so is the game itself.

Key Features
  • The next chapter: Continuing the story from Resident Evil 4 and movie Resident Evil: Degeneration, this has topped gamers' most wanted lists since it was announced.
  • Evolving threat: Hugely varied gameplay as you battle motorbikes in the bush, race along deadly enemy-filled rivers and combat some of gaming's biggest bosses.
  • Super model: Stunning graphics push the next generation consoles to their limits, with hordes of enemies onscreen at once and a larger, more interactive game world than before.
  • Afraid of the dark: Realistic lighting system will blind you in bright sunlight or leave you dangerously vulnerable in the dark.
  • Two's company: For the first time ever in Resident Evil you can play the entire game with a friend, either on or offline. Or have the computer back you up as new character Sheva.
About the Developer: Capcom
One of the oldest and most respected Japanese publisher/developers, Capcom are very secretive about their internal studios. Their names are not made public, but they've been responsible for classics ranging from Street Fighter II to Resident Evil and Mega Man to Devil May Cry.

Review:
Recipient of just about every game of the year award going in 2005, Resident 4 wasn’t just one of the best games of the last generation it was also one of the boldest reinventions of a well established franchise ever seen. The only problem was how Capcom were ever going to top it and since almost nothing has been revealed about the game so far that’s still a difficult question to answer.

Some facts are known about the game though, in that it uses the same basic gameplay and controls as Resident Evil 4, as well as some other elements from the very first Resident Evil. The latter isn’t surprising as a different team are working on this new game, many of whom worked on the very first game from back on the PSone.

The trailer shows a desert, possibly Middle Eastern, setting with what appears to be fast moving zombies in pursuit of what may, or may not, be Chris Redfield. What is known is that temperature will play an important role in the game, with characters having to cool down if they get too sweaty – even getting heatstroke or passing out from overheating. The game will also feature online elements for the first time in a core Resident Evil game, although again their exact nature remains a mystery. In fact the only thing that’s known for certain about the game is that with a track record this good it’s almost certainly going to be worth the wait finding out about.

4.0 out of 5 stars Huge Replayability 30 Sep 2010
By CalUKGR
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Reading through some of the user reviews for RE5 I think I might just be in a parallel universe. The endless gripes and whinges from people who want to snipe at the game for 'not being as good as RE4' or being somehow (impossibly, imo) a 'shoddy port' of the console version... Frankly, these kind of 'reviews' are laughable.

I love RE5. Not because I'm a RE5 fanboy (I'm not - I haven't ever played through RE4) but because it's a well-made, hugely replayable and fun game. I think it looks outstanding on PC - far from any kind of 'shoddy port' in fact (and, yes, I also have the 360 version which I have played to death, so I do know the difference). I have experienced absolutely NO stability issues with the game running in DX10 on Win7 whatsoever. None - in over twelve hours of gameplay. Windows Live connectivity is automatic and free and also perfectly stable.

This is a large, linear adventure/survival horror game with a very enjoyable RPG aspect (level up your weapons with loot and experience points). You can play the entire game in SP with an AI buddy called Sheva - or you can play co-operative (online) with your friend taking the place of the AI). Many have moaned about the lacklustre quality of the game's AI: I experienced few, if any, problems with it in SP and actually found it quite helpful (pay special attention to Sheva's weapons load-out and level up her guns and she'll perform admirably for you).

Beautiful level design, marvellous graphical FX (especially under DX10) and an engaging storyline all combine to produce an endlessly replayable series of missions. Some of the dialogue is cheesy, but the real-time in-engine cut-scenes are beautifully produced (unlock some of the hidden costumes and the cut-scenes will feature them on Chris and Sheva - nice).

4.0 out of 5 stars It's death, but not as we know it... 24 May 2011
By mosta67 VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Resident Evil 5 goes mainstream, but turning it's back on the creepy horror for guns and action in sunny Africa. After the damp castles, dreary streets and overcast European villages it's time the S.T.A.R.S operatives get some R&R, cracking skulls in the sunshine.

Sent to Africa to investigate B.O.Ws (bio-organic weapons, not stray dogs) Chris Redfield packs his speedos and suncream, and finds the mutant earwigs from the prequel have spread south to Africa from Europe - damn those lax immigration laws. He picks up a local tour rep, Sheva, a far cry(!) from Ashley, the limp President's daughter from Resident Evil 4, who is handy at not only pointing out the best bars, but also can waste ammo and get stuck on scenery like any good PC controlled AI.

On the way, the pair get to sample a local beheading, get chased out of town by the village butcher, go on monster truck safari with motorcycle gangs, take a boat trip tour to the local tribes, where they bring their own brand of 9mm humanitarian aid to the sick; and take a visit to the local factory, getting to play with the largest tapeworms you've ever seen. Chris meets up with Jill Valentine, dressed as a Venetian doctor from Assassin's Creed 2, his ever mutating buddy Wesker and a cast of thousands to double tap, burn, stomp, combo, kneecap and otherwise offend another ethnic group.

After all these years, S.T.A.R.S still hasn't trained its people to run and gun at the same time; in these days of lynch mob executions, stopping to aim at a baying mob is just silly - Hollywood has been training stars to shoot and walk with knees together for years, so more action / less horror in this title should have meant upping the pace in terms of combat.

3.0 out of 5 stars Resident Evil for Dummies 24 Oct 2009
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I have enjoyed playing Resident Evil in the past, however with this one i was bored from the start. It feels like Capcom have gone for making it easy to help it sell. It's far too easy, just follow Sheva, she always heads for where you need to go. And where are the puzzles. Having an unpredictable, uncontrolable and manic AI controlled companion is a disaster. Much of the time she's running ahead ( even though she's in support mode ) preventing any strategy such as picking off enemies with the Sniper Rifle. Other times she lags behind. What Capcom did was to saddle the player with a computer controlled player that they have to baby, watch and protect.
On the other hand being a PC controlled character she is an unaturally good shot, which also takes fun and challenge out of the game. The limited item slots issue is petty inconvenience, especially since Sheva can't manage her own inventory, another thing you have to take care of, well that's if she hangs around nearby long enough. Otherwise you have to chase after her to give her some ammo. She also has a nasty habit of picking up Proximity mines you have laid if she isn't very close to you at the time you laid them. It pales in enjoyment compared to Resident Evil 4. All in all a sad and embarrassing surrender to appeasing people who can't be bothered with more challenging game play and bogged down in petty difficulties. All the more dissapointing because Res 4 was such an outstandingly good game.
P.s the controls are annoying.
Addendum. I have had this game for over a year now and it is the only one of all the resident evil/dino crisis series that i have not replayed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome
As a RE fan, I must to say RE5 is just more than awesome.
But one thing I want to complain is the control. It's a little bit cumbersome. And moving shot is not available.
