Trivia

The beginning of the mansion of the "Lost In Nightmare" scenario bears a striking resemblance to the mansion of Resident Evil Remake. Some resemblances include the main hallway's staircase, the rear staircase, the dining room, the stairway hallway that had a birdcage in the Remake game, the piano song "Moonlight Sonata" to be able to take an emblem, and to use that emblem to open a door, and a monster crashing through windows.

stunning video game
17 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

I never played any resident evil game because i never been interested in any zombie movie or plot but definitely i have been curious about Resident evil since it have a lot of fans. So i began to play Resident Evil 5 the visuals really impressed me, and i mean the movements, distorsion, dust, details etc. but to be honest i didn't like at all the gameplay in the beginning. After finishing one time i figure that Resident evil 5 is made that way because the creators want to maintain a tactic gameplay, i like Resident evil 5 a lot because you have to think what to do and where to go before all zombies are in your back. The plot is real interesting is one of the best i have seen in PS3 or Xbox360 games because the plot is detailed and argument very well all characters and story maybe the only i dislike in the plot is that Chris and Sheva (the protagonists) don't get too well because both are very serious. Cutscenes are another great part of resident evil 5 the cut-scenes have been done extremely well, cut-scenes are in real time but they aren't in full screen ( disappointing ). Action is intense and add a lot of fear and make player think what will happen next, bosses are simply amazing and extremely fun to play i know a lot of resident evil fans dislike all the action in Resident evil 5 arguing that resident evil will transform into an action game instead of horror; but for me the action in Resident evil 5 leave me more tense and anxious to see what next in the game.

GOOD -Stunning Graphics; distorsion, details, human movement, environments. -Amazing gameplay: very tactical and intuitive -Accion and Horror; at hand one to another can be an extremely good mix -Co op: at last some game that can be played both ONLINE & OFFLINE -Plot: complex and intriguing -Great bosses

BAD -Sometimes i wish Sheva and Chris don't was partners, as they can be friends. -Sometimes the IA parter can be frustrating -Cutscens should be fullscreen

9.3 out of 10
