Resident Evil 5 (PS3)
Advantages: Great action and suspense
Disadvantages: Not as many puzzles
I have always loved the Resident Evil franchise from when the first game came on the scene years ago now and since then have either owned of played all of them on different consoles. The latest to be released last year was Resident Evil 5 and is still pretty good although for me I'm not sure you'll ever beat the original. There is still plenty of action in this particular offering and creepy moments but felt there were less puzzles and things like to figure out than before which was part of the fun.
If I'm being honest though I did still really enjoy this latest version and found it as entertaining as before despite a few elements missing. In Resident Evil 5 the story comes full circle and again you get to play the game as Chris Redfield. He was one of the two characters to play as from the original game if you remember. As the player you are given an overview of what he has been doing in the previous few years and what he's up to right now. He has started work for a new organisation now called BSAA. He used to work for STARS of course and this is a very similar, but smaller group. He has been sent to Africa on a new mission in which illegal weapons are being dealt and sold and it's up to Chris to put a stop to the plans. Should be a simple enough mission you would have thought compared to what he's used to!
He is in a for a nasty surprise however and with his partner Sheva ends up facing some of his old foes and has to fight his inner demons. Again we go back to the simple but successfull survival horror theme and fighting loads of zombies which has always been great fun and challenging. One of my favourite things about this game is that a second player can now enter the game and play in split screen action which is great. Player one always takes the role of Chris and player 2 the role of Sheva.
The camera angles are similar to resident evil 4 and feature the behind the shoulder view and when you shoot or try to attack with a knife you have to stop. When you fire the weapons you have to point the dot and fire. I must admit I found it a bit challenging and hard to get used to this but once you do it's fine.
One thing that hasn't really changed is that it's still as creepy and scary as ever and you will have great fun fighting the zombies and jump at various points. The lack of puzzles is a shame as I used to like that part of the game but apart from that it's not bad and a good addition to the series. If you love Resident Evil like me it's worth purchasing.
Summary: A pretty good addition to the Resident Evil series
