Rated 1 out of 10 by yama Not Resident Evil anymore
Everyone who likes this game is obviously not a Resident Evil Fan, they probably started playing from Resident Evil 4, so basically they don't know how resident evil 1,2,3 were like. and cant compare 4,5 to it. for me a loyal Capcom Fan, im very disappointed at this game. WHAT EVER happened to the Type writer Saving system, the safe room, the one angle Camera, the crazy hard Puzzles, the deep story line, the clues, the closed doors with keys, the scary voices, the corridors, when u open a door or walk the stairs and it shows an opening door in black background ? i guess im the one in the whole world who views things this way. and the game finished in like 5 hours? and i choose the hardest mode. ahhh what can i say, PS1 and PS2 were the best times for the best games. PS3 killed everything .. This is a Shooter game just like Lost planet and so on with no story at all, repeating "wheres jill? wheres jill?" the whole game, if you call that a deep story. then hope is lost.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Mervyn G Not the best Resident evil game but it's decent
Capcom has taken out the challenge from this game. The zombie are way easier to kill and the player gets lots of ammunition to taken them down. I really don't like aspect because I'm used to conserving my bullets in Resident Evil 4. Another thing i hate about the game is the length. It's way too short for me. The things i like the game is the action, the sound, level design, and graphics. The action is non stop leaving you with a rush of adrenaline. The visuals are amazing, some of the best i've seen in a video game. The level design is pretty interesting because of the mixture. You aren't stuck going to the destination through one way because there are some missions where you can use vehicles. The sound brings is great. The bottom line is if you want to collect all the extras in the game then you should buy this game. If you just want to play the beat the game once, then you should rent it. It shouldn't take that long to pass because it's a really easy game.

.. OK-dokes .. First run I've got, am completely awed by the graphics alone - hence I thought 4 was sick, but 5 was sicker, & Capcom truly evolves graphic-wise .. then having the run past to ending chapter 2s, immediately I feels Black Hawk Down gests - being the background in Africa .. then from there onto the Marsh-land - which gives off slight Lake-Placid feels going to the 2nd pieces of door-puzzle - & the locals there have poised by the Uro-virus as well, & more brutal than the goons on earlier chapters .. & continues their swarms 'til we get to fight Irving ( who've desperately injected the virus just to hold Chris + company ) .. & that's enough spoilers from me, if any of you haven't play already, then by all means quit reading, & just on to the game .. & it's online - so team-up, or brawls - the game's universe has spread that far so let's meet-up or brawls - doesn't really matter to me .. ;D .. the game earns Gold on March's '09 Game Informers ;D ..

I played the demo for this game and I was impressed. The graphics were pleasing to me, but not the greatest. The storyline is going to be good just like all the other Resident Evil games. The enemys you fight are very ruthless, which makes this game kind of difficult or some getting used to. I had some pros and cons for the co-op mode. Some of the functions they do together as a team are cool; for instance, if you get an enemy on their knees your player can do a melee attack and the co-op computer will follow with their distinct melee attack. Also, if the player your using is getting grabbed or attacked the co-op computer will save you, which I thought was great. The cons is that sometimes it seems like the co-op computer is getting in the way of the gameplay, and when ammo comes up short they become more of a burden than help. I don't think the co-op mode with the computer is through the whole game, but if it does I'm probably going to be disappointed.
Rated 9 out of 10 by SheldonTheory4280 R.E.5 Has HIGH Replayability
The truth of the matter is the game is great but it isnt perfect. I found myself replaying the game a total of 4 times once on Easy, Twice on Normal, Once on Hard(which unlocks Professional mode which at this point i dont care for). The game itself is rather difficult no matter what mode you play it on and the hardest part to be honest is more the mutants or zombies than the actual level bosses and monsters were which was a bit disappointing. The most frustrating aspect is when you have to literally just wait on Sheva but when your not waiting on her, she actually is very helpful. Now i gave the graphics an 8 because the best looking parts of the game were the videos with Chris and Sheva and the Villians. The mutants, and monsters were'nt that impressive.
Now the gameplay and story are great which had me play it more than the one time. I feel Resident Evil fans will enjoy it more than someone just looking for a new game to pick up for a cheap price
Rated 10 out of 10 by Samanoske Akeshi Awsome game
It has awesome graphics it has incredible boss battles i play it alone and the AI was very good my partner sheva has save me lots of time from doom and she is never in the way and very help full.if you have someone to play it with is better. the controls are good like a traditional resident evil game but the only thing that it would have made it better is if you could move and shot and the menu it is in real time at first it is frustrating because there is lots of action and lots of zombies running at you but then i found out you could assign weapons to the d -pad and it was cool. The sound is very scary good voice acting excellent scenes beautiful story if you have not been from the beginning of the series you will cash up with this game. the game is like a addiction you don't want to stop playing it the game is very entertaining from zombies with machine guns wish is weird to chainsaw maniacs wish is scary one it starts running to you. i give this game a 9 out of 10 it is a classic game very good i have a lot of fun playing it.
Rated 0 out of 10 can't wait.
I am a big fan of RE. since the original to now, they have all been great games. and I loved when RE4 came out, I loved the new action. I think it would be fun to bring back zombies, but make it like the Dawn of the Dead remake type zombies. slower are just easier to kill, but it's understandable why they use the gonadoes. I did play the preview. my only concern was the weapon selection menu, I understand it makes the game harder, and scarier. being that you can be attacked while switching weapons, so it's more like being in the battle personally. but it's just to complicated from what I saw. I think it would be nice if you could set certain weapons to quick switch buttons. and the controls. I can't tell you how the controls for RE4 were, since I played it for gamecube. but movement wise, Chris seems like he is carrying a 40 pound weight strapped to each leg. He is just way to slugish. but I am pretty sure that I will be able to get over that.
Rated 10 out of 10 by That kid who's obsessed with Resident Evil If you don't own it- you're different!
Resident evil has never failed to suprise me. Having played it since it's debut in 96', it's a franchise I've followed, religiously, from console to console and has never let me down. This game once again re-revolutionizes the style of Resident Evil, while holding true to the story for the fans. With co-op, Resident Evil 5 now shifts gears into a more action-based gameplay in contrast to the dark, slow, and terrorising environment of its predessesors (except RE4). The old environment wasn't bad, but five games of the same stuff would've been pretty boring and repetitive. By playing this game it makes me want to reflect on its opposite which was the beginning of the Resident Evil series and play them again, but, at the same time, move foward in the story. Put it this way: RE has been basically building from its dark and slow beginnings, to its fast paced action-packed ending. If you don't own Resident evil 5- well... you're just different.
Rated 9 out of 10 by juknow One of the best games
This game has surpassed it's predecessor Resident Evil 4 in so many ways. One of those ways was coming out for next generation consoles. Another way was when it got a facelift with the new graphics given by the ps3. The story of Chris and Sheva is simply amazing, you'll want to keep playing for a long time to come. The amount of weapons you can have at any one time is simply amazing and they're all deadly, especially with the upgrades you purchase for them. Of course it takes some time to upgrade them but when you do it's well worth the money you spent. The storyline and cutscenes are awesome and the online capability are what make this game a memorable experience that you won't be able to hold back when you talk to your friends once you've beaten the game. Whoever has enough cash I urge you to go out and buy this game because if you haven't played it then you're missing out on something that will be spoken about for a long time.
