    While it's disappointing that the Resident Evil series has gone more for action than horror, this is still a good game.

    I am a HUGE Resident Evil fan. I have played every game in the series (many multiple times) and consider myself an expert on the series itself. Ever since I first played the original RE, I have been a...

    Low expectations for the upcoming games.

    This game is not better than its predecessor: RE4, the new feature of playing with a companion is not good at all, it's annoying for you to take care of Sheva when you have to take care of your own li...

    Resident Evil 5 builds upon the reputation of the fourth game and successfully ends one of the longest running arcs.

    Rated on July 16, 2012 by DrHyde

    Resident Evil 4 (and by extension 5) was a very polarizing game. Purists found the game horrible as it removed much of what Resident Evil was, but people new to series and casual players enjoyed it. I...

    Resident Evil 5's already-short length isn't really made much better even with the DLC that comes with the Gold Edition.

    Rated on March 02, 2013 by NightFox313

    Let me get this straight: I am a fan of the Resident Evil games, and the Survival Horror genre that it pioneered. Even though I haven't played many of the games (just REmake and RE2), I've played enou...

    An ok shooting game that unfortunally lives of the hype of Resident Evil, not really amazing but nice fun.

    Rated on April 05, 2013 by alienbitch

    I wasn't so overwhelmed at first, simple tasks and a partner that is more in your way than anything else. But this game is what you make of it, and I decided to make it fun. As an old fan of RE I trie...

    While it's more action oriented, Resident Evil 5 brings back a few things, creating a well balanced Resident Evil Title.

    Not worth spending $50 on, but worth playing a good few times after getting it anyways.

    Resident Evil 5 Gold Adition, surly is a great game. Very addicting for those who are into 2nd or first person shooters. Like the original game (which isn't too diffrent or barly at all) has diffrent ...
