"Not a 'survival-horror' experience"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Resident Evil 5 is a good game, and with the additional content in the gold edition, it's great value for money. In an ocean of awful PS3 games, RE5 stands out as something worth getting your wallet out for, particularly if you're short on good co-op games, but if you're looking for a true survival horror experience, look elsewhere. In the single player campaign, your partner Sheva is with you at all times, so you don't get that feeling of being hopelessly alone that gave Dead Space and Bioshock their atmosphere. Also, ammo scarcity ceases to be a problem in the later stages of the game, and every time there's about to be a zombie encounter, suspenseful music begins to play so that you'll never be surprised. These things make it unlikely you'll be scared by RE5, but as far as zombie-killing games on the PS3 go, RE5 is about the best you'll find.

Description

Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition that will include the original game plus all additional content, making this the ultimate Resident Evil 5 experience.

Previously only seen during cut scenes of the original RESIDENT EVIL 5, the first new episode titled “LOST IN NIGHTMARES”, finds BSAA agent, Chris Redfield, working with his partner, Jill Valentine, as they investigate Ozwell E.

Spencer, the evil mastermind and co-founder of Umbrella Corporation, has been hiding a new evil deep within the basement of his mansion. Chris and Jill discover this grotesque evil standing in their way as the two enter deeper into the catacombs beneath the mansion.

Simultaneous with the release of “LOST IN NIGHTMARES”, new costumes for Chris and Sheva will be made available, allowing the player to experience RESIDENT EVIL 5 with a fresh new look and feel through both game play and cut-scene playback. A new refresh of Mercenaries Mode, “ THE MERCENARIES REUNION”, gives players new playable characters and weapon load outs which provide players additional challenges as they aim to shoot down as many enemies as they can within a limited time. Each piece of downloadable content will contain two new playable characters. The GOLD EDITION will feature all eight.

Utilising the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 unprecedented power, Resident Evil 5 promises to revolutionise the series by delivering an unbelievable level of detail, realism and control. Resident Evil 5 is certain to bring new fans to the series while expanding the world of video game entertainment to new heights; confirming once again Capcom's long standing reputation as a bold innovator within the industry.

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.

Co-producer and series veterans Jun Takeuchi (Lost Planet) and Masachicka Kawata (Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition, Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles) unleashes an unprecedented level of fear for the next generation in Resident Evil 5, the sequel to one of the highest-rated videogames in history, according to Metacritic.com and Gamerankings.com.
