Games Review: Resident Evil 5
PS3, Xbox, 360, Capcom, £44.99
Saturday 14 March 2009
For the latest instalment of the Resident Evil
saga, Capcom has reimagined its special
brand of survival horror. Tracing the origins
of the virus that has proved so fertile as an
inspiration for the series, RE5 is refreshingly
different but unlike its predecessors, and
despite the tentacles, violent urges and
bleeding eyes of your foes, not very scary.
However, what it lacks in short, sharp shocks,
it makes up for in a new co-op mode and
varied gameplay that sees players switching
from tiptoeing through silent tunnels then
gunning down the undead to tackling tricky
problems in seconds.
