Product Details:

From the ashes of old conflicts, a new terror arises. The Umbrella Corporation and its crop of lethal viruses have been destroyed and contained. But a new, more dangerous threat has emerged. Years after surviving the events in Raccoon City, Chris Redfield has been fighting the scourge of bio-organic weapons all over the world. Now a member of the Bio-terrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA), Chris is sent to Africa to investigate a biological agent that is transforming the populace into aggressive and disturbing creatures. Joined by another local BSAA agent, Sheva Alomar, the two must work together to solve the truth behind the disturbing turn of events. Featuring a revolutionary new co-op mode of gameplay, Resident Evil 5 will let players experience fear together as terror moves out of the shadows and into the light of day.

Key Features:
  • Two Playable Characters - Chris Redfield, protagonist of the original Resident Evil and Resident Evil: Code Veronica, returns and is joined by new playable character Sheva Alomar, an African BSAA agent tasked with investigating the epidemic.
  • Two Player Online Co-op - New cooperatively-focused gameplay revolutionizes the way that Resident Evil is played. Chris and Sheva must work together to survive new challenges and fight dangerous hordes of enemies.
  • Next Generation of Fear - Features groundbreaking graphics that utilize an advanced version of Capcom's proprietary game engine, MT Framework, which powered the hit titles Devil May Cry 4, Lost Planet and Dead Rising.
  • "Quick-Select" Inventory System - Improved inventory system allows items to be traded between characters. To add to the intensity, all inventory management is done in real time; items can even be assigned to the directional pad for instant access.
  • New Control Schemes - Features new modernized third-person action game control variations as well as the return of the traditional Resident Evil 4 control schemes.
  • New Enemies Bring New Challenges - Enemies boast increased speed and intelligence, making them as dangerous alone as they are in groups.
  • Powerful New Weapons - The number of weapon variations has been greatly increased providing new ways to keep enemies at bay.
  • Fear Light as much as Shadow - Lighting effects provide a new level of suspense as players attempt to survive in both harsh sunlight and extreme darkness.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wonderful game, Partner ui needed work Playing the game i only had one serious problem, Sheva. I loved the levels, bosses, the free hand aiming, but i could not stand how painfully stupid she could be at times. at one point i watched her literally run into a giant oven, and give me game over... really? ..I was just reading the raving reviews wondering if they were playing the same game, this was written after RE6 came out, my advice, skip this one, you won't miss anything

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Resident Evil I am a casual fan of Resident Evil. I own 1,3,4,5,6,and 0. I've only ever beaten 1 and 6. I occasionally pop one in and play it for a couple hours and move on to something else. I recently started playing 5 with a friend and it is great! I hated playing this game alone I never got more than an hour in, but playing with a friend instead of AI is amazing. Best Resident Evil I've played and it makes me want to go start over and actually finish all the others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from RE5 Changes it's style and leaves horror behind Unlike previous Resident Evil titles, Resident Evil 5 is not scary. The game will provide some suspense, but the game is really more of an action horror. The game however will satisfy Resident Evil fans, It's a solid entry in the Resdient Evil franchise and it has familiar characters such as Chris, Jill and even Wesker. The games story is about 7 hours to complete and after you complete the story mode you unlock Mercenaries mode which lets you fight against endless waves of enemies in a certain amount of time and the goal is to kill as much and gather as much points for the time being, adding to the replay value. The thing that Resident Evil 5 does best is co-op, me and my buddy played through the story mode together and played mercenaries alot, the game is really fun and any resident evil fan will enjoy it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is not your grandfather's resident evil. It's been a bit of time since the 4th installment in capcoms popular survival horror franchise that revolutionized action games. Now resident evil 5 attempts to step into those shoes, but to call it a survival horror game is quite a stretch. This is defintly not the resident evil game you had come to expect. This 5th installment plays more like an action game, and pays the price for it. Thought it's a fun game, you start to see why focusing on fist pumping action, doesn't work with the set controls. There is not a cover system, aiming is similar to that found in resident evil 4 and overall it feels like a dinosaur among action games. The newly carried out (forced) co-op is both good and bad. If you are playing the game by yourself, Sheva is a pain. The A.I partner is about as stupid as it comes and often times I saw myself dying because of her. The game's main campaign is of descent length and there are some fine moments to be had, but the only thing that held me together was the production values. The story is entertaining enough, but the visuals are gorgeous. It features some of the best character models and lighting found in video games, though sometimes the textures can be hit or miss. The art direction also sets quite a striking horrific mood. Audio is solid, though voice acting can be off sometimes. The overall the game features a great looking and sounding package as it's come to be expected from resident evil game. Once you're done with the single player, the value is extended to online co-op or mercenaries mode. Both are fun game modes to compliment the excellent valued package. Overall: Resident evil 5 is a worthy entry into the franchise. Not because it lives up to expectations, but because it's a good game. Ultimately I was extremely frustrated with the game-play as I had to force myself to enjoy the story, visuals and audio to get through the game. Its frustrations would have been easily resolved had the developers added modern controls to the otherwise aging gameplay mechanics that the game has.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Part Action, Part Survival, All Awesome! I finally picked this game up and all I can say is WOW! RE4 is what got me into this genre and RE5 takes another big step forward in the gameplay, with the co-op, new inventory system, and streamlined controls, it is really an amazing video game. The main story is not too long, much shorter than RE4, but it has much more replayability. After you beat the game, You actually want to go through again on the next hardest difficulty and play around with all the wepons and outfits you unlock. If you have been waiting to buy this game, do yourself a favor and pick it up today.
