Resident Evil 5

High-Def Digest
15 September 2011
  • Summary: The latest installment in Capcom’s best-selling Resident Evil franchise took us on a decidedly different adventure from previous games in the series. In many ways it continued what its predecessor, Resident Evil 4, started, by focusing more on action and spectacle over horror and a creepy setting. Gone are the staples of the survival horror genre, like ammo conservation, sudden scares, and a foreboding atmosphere.

Resident Evil 5: Collector's Edition Review (PS3)

About.com
28 October 2009
  • Conclusion: The Resident Evil 5: Collector's Edition bundles on the the hottest games of the year with some incredible swag, including a Chris Redfield toy... it's a hard to beat package, though the game itself could still use some work. Don't get me wrong, it's pretty and plays wonderfully. But at 12 hours it is shorter than the other Resident Evil games and it seems to be obsessed with cut scenes.
  • Pros: Luscious graphics and animation, Playing with a partner is a blast, Decent replay value and tons to find, Resident Evil is still an incredibly tough series to beat, Luscious graphics and animation, Playing with a partner is a blast, Decent replay value and tons to find, Resident Evil is still an incredibly tough series to beat
  • Cons: Slow, stop and shoot gameplay isn't for all gamers, Overly cinematic, seems to want to be a movie as much as a game, Getting online games started is a chore, Slow, stop and shoot gameplay isn't for all gamers, Overly cinematic, seems to want to be a movie as much as a game, Getting online games started is a chore

Resident Evil 5

Playstation Illustrated
28 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Resident Evil 5 , much like Resident Evil 4 before it, looks simply beautiful - well, most of the time. The graphics are crisp and detailed and the player is able to see every little detail, from the red eyes of the infected Majinis you'll be battling against, to the pulsating flesh of the bad-ass bosses. Your heroes, Chris Redfield (from earlier RE games) and Sheva Alomar, are simply beautiful specimens of humanity.

  • Conclusion: It’s hard to say which version is superior, although if you like your visuals, the PC version is definitely worth checking out if you’ve got the hardware. Those worried about their ability to even get the game running on their rig should consider checking out the benchmark tool that was released prior to release. Other than that, it’s simply down to which platform you prefer.

Resident Evil 5 review (PS3)

HonestGamers
17 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Upon opening one door on their way to the rendezvous point, they encounter their first Ganado.....I mean Majini (same thing, different ethnicity). After blasting it to hell, it doesn't take long for our heroes to find themselves in deep doo-doo, as they get chased around the town by a horde of Majini led by a hulking chap wielding an executioner's axe.

Resident Evil 5 (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
14 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Resident Evil. Since its arrival on the PlayStation, the series has built up an almost legendary status. Resident Evil 5, being a direct sequel and a pretty similar game to one of the best games of last generation, has some huge shoes to fill. “Welcome to Africa” The game starts with Chris Redfield, the star (pun intended) of the original Resident Evil and Code Veronica games, arriving in a dusty African town in the fictitious country of Kijuju.
