Resident Evil 5 Review

Posted in Uncategorized on March 19, 2003 by admin

  • Solid gameplay, similar to RE4
  • Great value in the forms of extra weapons, modes, and online play
  • Accessible


  • Very little ambiance-driven scares
  • Story is incoherent without the wall ‘o’ texts

  • Buy:  Rabid fans of the series and anyone who enjoyed RE4, as well as action game fans with the patience to learn a quirky control scheme
  • Rent:  Gamers who were iffy about the demo, or want to spend a good weekend with the game before waiting on a price drop
