About Resident Evil 5
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
organization, 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. In Resident Evil 5, Capcom will teach players to fear the
daylight as much as they have feared shadow in previous games.
New technology developed specifically for the game, as well as incredible
changes to both the gameplay and world of Resident Evil make this a must-have
game for gamers across the globe.

“…successfully builds on the foundation of its predecessor while taking
it in a drastically different direction. Having a partner introduces new degrees
of gameplay depth and dramatic tension that make the game that much more
exciting to play. Though the slow, deliberate movement and shooting may not
appeal to everyone, this new sequel’s frequent large-scale battles and co-op
play still offer a fun and exciting adventure.” 8.5/10 – Gamespot
“…there’s a wealth of replayability through item collection, weapon
upgrades, score chasing and the unlockable Mercenaries mode. But this is no
gentle nudge to the formula of the previous main RE games; it’s an evolution.
And if you can accept it as that, you just might love Resident Evil 5. The
extra content packed in with the Gold Edition is just that: extra…Its
inclusion doesn’t necessarily make the Resident Evil 5 experience better or
worse; it just extends it.” 9/10 – IGN
