Resident Evil 5 Game

The biohazard threat has not ended! Just when it seemed that the menace of Resident Evil had been destroyed, along comes a new terror to send shivers down player's spines. Chris Redfield, returning Resident Evil hero, has followed the path of the evil literally around the globe. After joining a new organisation, Chris heads to Africa where the latest bioterrorism threat is literally transforming the people and animals of the city into mindless, maddened creatures. Chris must take on the challenge of discovering the truth behind this evil plot. Promising to revolutionise the series by delivering an unbelievable level of detail, realism and control, Resident Evil 5 is certain to bring new fans to the series. New technology developed specifically for the game, as well as incredible changes to both the gameplay and world of Resident Evil will make this a must-have game for gamers across the globe.

  • Chris Redfield, protagonist of the original Resident Evil and Resident Evil: Code Veronica, returns
  • New environments and a diverse assortment of locations
  • New enemies bring new challenges - speed and intelligence make adversaries as dangerous singly as they are in groups
  • An arsenal of weapons at the players command to keep the evil at bay, including knives, pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles and more
  • Lighting effects provide a new level of suspense in both harsh light and deepest shadow
  • True high-definition gaming on multiple game platforms, using an advanced version of Capcom's proprietary game engine, MT Framework, which powered the next-gen, million-plus hit titles Devil May Cry 4, Lost Planet and Dead Rising

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.

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 Is it any good? yes.....and no... 13 Mar. 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Special Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Well this definatly isn't as good as the "limited editions" that japan and the US received and i would recommend the purchase of the standard version because the "making of" dvd here really doesn't justify the extra money.

As for the game, the graphics are excellent as you would expect from capcom and they have really pushed the boat out on rendering the detail and lifelike accuracy. But....for all the time, effort and money they have spent on the graphics they have somewhat neglected the control system and story. The control system is over complex, too many button combos combined with the awkward inventory system results in many a death scenario.Keeping an eye on,...and supplying ammo to your partner AI can also be an irritation in battle but grab your self a friend and this game is a great 2 player game and so much easier with 2 people. The control system just doesn't seem to become second nature to the player so spoils the flow of gameplay somewhat.
Storylines for resident evils have usualy conflicted but this has some really big problems especially regarding Wesker, this won't bother you if you started from Resident Evil 4 but Resident Evil fans from the first game onwards might be saying "what the...??".

We've all heard the rumours of the ridiculous ending....and sadly...it's true.

Over all a good game, flawed and awkward to play a lot of the time...but well worth a shot and I certainly have nothing but praise for it's graphical technical achievements.....and it's got Wesker in it!! what greater reason does a Resident Evil fan need to buy a game!?

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun but could have been better. 8 May 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Special Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Resident Evil 5 had a lot to live up to. Resident Evil 4 is widely considered as the best game in the franchise and just one of the best games ever to be made period. Unfortunately, Resident Evil 5 doesn't quite reach the branch mark set by the previous game.
It feels like all Capcom have done is remade Resident Evil 4 with nicer graphics and a co-op character but haven't added any other new elements to the game. Although the game is fun and the option to play with a friend is cool, after you complete the game (which won't take long, the game only has about 10 hours of game play and its not very difficult) you won't have many reasons to re-play the game. There are collectable items to get (weapons, costumes, etc) and the game has trophy support but it depends on the kind of gamer you are if this will be enough to get you to keep playing the game.
Mercenaries makes a welcome return from Resi 4, this option lets you take on hordes of enemies either by yourself or with a friend, which is a lot of fun. The recent multiplayer DLC does add more to the game although I've heard its not that good. The limited edition copy of this game isn't really worth getting, as all you get is a metal case and a making of documentary.
Overall Resident Evil 5 is fun for awhile but I can't help feeling the game could have been so much better if they had added some new ideas to the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars A solid game! 25 Mar. 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Special Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've played almost all RE games and love them all; it is a fantastic story with ambient and exiting gameplay. When RE 4 came I missed the zombies like so many others but the game it self was rock solid. RE 5 is in many ways like RE 4 and it's equally solid. The main differences are a new location and new characters compared to RE 4 in addition to a few minor changes; otherwise it's pretty much the same, i.e. very good indeed including some stunning graphics. Ok, the control scheme is still far from perfect with sometimes a jerky result in the characters movement. The camera is not following you good enough at corners but none of these problems really affect the over attractive and intriguing experience. I really hope for more RE games, new style (RE 4 and 5) but even more the old style (RE 1-3 + Code Veronica and the Outbreak-series). Sometimes I really don't believe that Capcom realize the immense magnitude of love that's surrounding this series!

4.0 out of 5 stars Double Team Fun....Resident Evil at it's Best 10 April 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Special Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Resident Evil 5 - Limited Edition (PS3)

Ok the control dynamics is still frustrating as all Resident evil games are (referring to the typical "Stop & shoot" mechanics), but then give it time you get used to it as you do with all 'Resi' games, it is a learning curve.

The best feature about this game by far out of all the series i would say is the Co-Operative gameplay. Play with anyone offline or online, one thing annoying about offline 2-player gameplay is the split screen. The 2 screens per player is cascaded making each user screen smaller, still it does grow on you....eventually

The story is probably the drive behind the series. Once you have played the first Resident Evil you will want to play them all because of the well structured and intriguing storyline.

Its just Resident Evil at its best. Hopefully there will be a sixth.

5.0 out of 5 stars RE5 is Greate ........... 6 April 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Special Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all i like to talk about the limited edition version , its fantastic grete looking game very unique case its made of a light metal with give it the uniqueness , the extra DVD is cool you an see the making of RE5 and the RE Degeneration trailer which is nice too.

Second thing is the GAME .... WOW ... the game is grete , the graphics are cool , the story is related to the original RE , the game still have the RE soul , the control is little confusing in the begining but you will get use of it soon , the cooperation mode is nice too , yes it is like RE4 but trust me it is much more better than RE4 , If you are an RE fan you have to bring this version its perfect.

A fan of the resident evil game series this was a no brainer purchase. Not as good as number 4 but still worth a punt for some zombie slaying action.
