Resident Evil 5: Lost in Nightmares
10 January 2013
Conclusion: While I certainly feel that Capcom could of stretch out the this single chapter into three chapters --1-1, 1-2, and 1-3--, mimicking the chapter structure of the game, for the low price of $4.99/400 MS Points you can’t go wrong with this purchase. For those who haven’t picked up Resident Evil 5 yet or sold their copy already, I recommend picking up the game and downloading this DLC package, or wait until March 9th and pick up Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition which will...
Excerpt: Resident Evil 5 has been on shop shelves for a full year now, and Capcom has decided it's about time to supply the game with some more DLC. Lost in Nightmares is the first of two playable expansions to the Resident Evil 5 story, filling in some of the gaps left in the main adventure.
Excerpt: In the first of two planned downloadable episodes to be tacked onto last year’s Resident Evil 5 (which both require the original game disc to run), Capcom has revealed the details of Jill Valentine’s previously unexplained disappearance during a mission with Chris Redfield prior to the events in Africa.
Conclusion: Lost in Nightmares was constructed specifically for the Resident Evil fan base. It's a brief run, but it has enough call backs, in-jokes, and references to satisfy the legion of fans clamoring for a return to the series roots. The AI is still garbage, but the way in which Resident Evil 5's mechanics function under the series older style of gameplay is quite impressive.
Excerpt: It's been a year since Chris and Sheva survived the horrors of Uroboros in Africa, but the story of Resident Evil 5 continues on in the newest DLC, Lost in Nightmares. Set roughly two years earlier, this latest adventure takes veterans Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine to the creepy Spencer Estate to arrest one of Umbrella's founders, Oswald Spencer. The excursion quickly goes south, and you'll have to survive numerous death traps, hideous monsters, and a few puzzles.
