Did You Know?


Actress Eva La Dare once acted in a short film called Evil Resident (2002) as a character called Eman Valentine. Although the film is completely unrelated to the Resident Evil games, years later she was hired for the role of Sheva Alomar in this game, which coincidentally has a character named Jill Valentine.

The RPG-7 is technically NOT a rocket launcher because a rocket launcher fires a rocket designed for that launcher, the RPG series are grenades, modified to be fired. However it is plausible to say that Capcom called it that because that is what most people call it. See more »

Good, but not quite...
29 March 2009 | by angie2911See all my reviews

Having just completed R.E 5, I have to admit to feeling somewhat disappointed. As a HUGE fan of R.E 4, my expectations were set quite high. After all, Resident Evil 4 was ground breaking stuff. Sadly, I don't feel this sequel delivers.

The plus points are fairly obvious - huge similarities in terms of game-play, controls and the overall feel of it, just like R.E 4. Alongside stunning graphics.

The minus points were, in comparison to 4, 5 only lasted approximately 10-12 hours for the main story whilst 4 lasted about 20+ hours. The depth of complexity the former title had was missing (the many cut scenes requiring quick reactions, the deeper story line, the riddles, puzzles and various locations). Granted, some of these featured, but they were scarce.

So in closing, 5 is a good game. A very good game. Nicely done, and enjoyable enough. But, it's not a truly great game in terms of a follow up to 4. It was promising, and something we fans eagerly waited for. But Resident Evil 4 STILL reigns supreme. R.E 4 - 10/10. R.E 5 - 7/10
