Trivia

This is the only Resident Evil game until Revelations 2 where a Resident Evil history fact is used while loading up the next scenes. See more »

Goofs

Chris and Sheva were never given the orders to retreat, what actually happen is that they decided to flee but changed there mind once Chris decided to locate Jill. Yet, all the characters act as if they got those orders to do it. This means that either Capcom overlooked this mistake or cut out a section of the game that explains this. See more »

Quotes

Chris Redfield: [we hear Chris's voice as he is driving down a road] I should've seen it coming. It didn't take long after the fall of the Umbrella corporation, for their bio-weapons to end up in the hands of terrorists. A new era of bio-terrorism descended upon vulnerable countries. Shifting the balance of power throughout the region.
Chris Redfield: People in the destabilized areas soon feared another incident like Raccoon City was inevitable. As panic spread, governments of the world turned to the Global Pharmaceutical ...

Resident Evil: Zero Atmosphere
16 August 2009 | by CuriosityKilledShawnSee all my reviews

Resi 5 looks good and sounds good, but despite all the prettiness and bells and whistles the gameplay, I'm sorry to say, is rather mundane.

The Plagas virus from Resi 4 comes back and is infecting African tribesman and shanty town locals. Chris Redfield returns with his new partner Sheva to find out just who is pulling the strings this time. Gee, do think it will be Wesker...again?

There is very little in this game that is fresh. 90% of it is simply lifted from Resi 4 (dilapidated villages, grotty, rusting facilities, mines, yadda-yadda-yadda), though none of the atmosphere that made it so re-playable is present. Bringing the action out of the darkness and into the sunlight was a big mistake. There is also a disappointing lack of interesting weapons and upgrades cost too much, considering how little gold and treasures you encounter during the course of the levels (there is unfortunately no Cockney Merchant). Plus you never really feel the power of the upgrades.

Having played through the game twice I was rewarded with a few paltry unlockables. As well as being a criminally short and easy game there are not many reasons to trudge through it again.

A minor disappointment. I'm just glad I didn't pay full price for it.
