From the ashes of old conflicts, a new terror arises. The Umbrella Corporation and its crop of lethal viruses have been destroyed and contained. But a new, more dangerous threat has emerged. Years after surviving the events in Raccoon City, Chris Redfield has been fighting the scourge of bio-organic weapons all over the world. Now a member of the Bio-terrorism Security Assessment Alliance (B.S.A.A.), Chris is sent to Africa to investigate a biological agent that is transforming the populace into aggressive and disturbing creatures. Joined by another local BSSA agent, Sheva Alomar, the two must work together to solve the truth behind the disturbing turn of events. Featuring a revolutionary new co-op mode of gameplay, Resident Evil 5 will let players experience fear together as terror moves out of the shadows and into the light of day.

Great game if you don't like scary thingsbartlec2 | June 14, 2013 | See all bartlec2's reviews »
This is a great game. I absolutely love it! The graphics are good, quite realistic. The plot is interesting, while still being the silliness that Resident Evil does so well. One thing that may be a drawback to some is that this was when Resident Evil started becoming much more action oriented than horror based. That's great for someone who doesn't like to be scared, but still likes the Resident Evil world.

Such controversy with RE5 and RE6, going from ye old beloved horro survival to a full action packed game style, being RE4 a transition between them. I loved how thew co-op actually pulled out quite good in this one, even though of the "rasist" controversy of the enemies and the actual location of the story, the game was good, with a variety of weapons and enemies, but what killed my mood was SPOILERS the ending, with certain character dying.
Great Action Co-op Game.Ishakuro | June 6, 2013 | See all Ishakuro's reviews »
This game really doesn't feel like the older Resident Evil games.Fans of the slower pace and ambient terror of the first few games won't find much to enjoy here. If you're a fan of shooter gameplay with a strong co-op focus, this is a game you must try.
It's worth noting, the game can be played solo, but I would not recommend it. The co-op AI is below average even for the time. At least once I recall the AI picking up the mines I was placing on the road behind me. If you get this game, get a friend to tag along.

Resident Evil 5 was my second RE game after 4. RE4 is one-of-a-kind and can never be duplicated in my eyes, but man, RE5 brought out the big guns in this one. I was impressed with the graphics and I played the whole game in co-op, which I think is the only way to play this. If you play it by yourself, it won't be as great. The AI is awful and will definitely give you a bad opinion. If you have a friend to play with, you are in for a ride and will experience what I believe is one of the best co-op experiences I've had in the last few years. Get a friend, play this and love it.
A classic action experienceacloggedtoaster | May 10, 2013 | See all acloggedtoaster's reviews »
Resident evil 5 stays true to classic resident evil games, forcing players to move or shoot, but not both at the same time. The difficulty has been toned down in comparison to RE4 and the horror aspect is lighter. The game features various enemies, great graphics, and great coop. The game feels like it drags on a bit and gets tedious towards the end. Running this game on any mid range pc should bring high-max settings with a good frame rate. You probably wont feel like replaying it when you finish it.
