Resident Evil 5 Review
Resident Evil 5 is addictively fun, what was once a survival/horror series has now transformed itself into an action packed horror third person shooter with online co-op play! Yipee! You and a buddy can team up and play through a zombie blockbuster movie, surviving through life threatening situations and incredible explosions with magnificent graphics, pulse- pounding action and entertaining in-game cut scenes. Ohh joy, shooting zombies has never been so much fun! Bring in the popcorn!
You start the game as Chris Redfield who also appeared in the first Resident Evil game and his new BSAA (organization that fights bioterrorism) partner, Sheva Alomar in Kijuju, a fictional location in Africa. Resident Evil 5, is essentially a two player game, either the AI or a second player takes control of Sheva throughout the entire campaign. Both characters have their advantages and disadvantages. Chris performs punching melee moves and Shiva holds her own by kicking. The entire game is built on teamwork, the player will come across situations that require the assistance of your partner in order to find a new route or proceed to the next section. When your buddy is about to hit the ground you can run up to them and revive them instantly Gears of Wars style.
Get ready to pit yourself against16 gorgeous levels filled with chainsaw wielding zombies, crazed town folks, undead animals and other insane monstrosities. The games graphics are to die for, the sound, music and voice over are top notch as expected and the in-game cutscenes are entertaining and do a fantastic job of telling each characters history and story.
Resident Evil 5 will provide with several memorable OMG moments from the beginning till the bitter sweet end.
Available for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
