Resident Evil 5 expands on the new gameplay features of Resident Evil 4, giving you co-op, a faster way to switch weapons or heal in real time, new melee attacks, and more control of your character. The setting of the game, more action focused gameplay, and having another character with you, even when playing alone, has taken a lot of the atmosphere out of the game and removes the survival elements that the series is known for. Combat is enjoyable and the new melee moves that can be done when you stun enemies in different ways are fun but your AI companion will likely waste a lot of ammo with most of the game's weapons and having another player with you tends to make everything very easy. There are a few co-op actions such as melee enemies into each other for special attacks or working together to reach different spots of the map that can allow one of the characters to cover the other, these areas or ones where you are swarmed with enemies (in a similar way to the opening of Resident Evil 4) are the best moments of the game. Cutscenes can include QTEs that might cause you to die which can be annoying if you or your partner are bad at them, worse if you are trying to get a good ranking on each level. Due to the co-op focus of the game the game uses levels instead of having a more open environment and the game can be beaten fairly quickly when compared to Resident Evil 4. It's worth playing if you enjoyed the combat of RE4 or if you have someone to play with but it's not as strong of an entry in the series as RE4. The Gold Edition includes some new costumes and a versus mode, these editions aren't that interesting but also included are the two new levels Lost In Nightmares and Desperate Escape. Lost In Nightmares is a prequel to the game that has Chris and Jill going after Wesker in a mansion, the style of this is more atmospheric and in line with some moments of the previous games. Desperate Escape takes place near the end of the main game and shows what Jill and Josh were doing before they picked up Chris and Sheva at the end of the game. Desperate Escape is a more action focused level and both are good editions to the main game.
At last, here comes the Gold Edition for Resident Evil 5! Containing all DLCs for the game, this edition is a must have for those who want the full experience of the game. The two new mini-campaign are very interesting to play, especially Lost in Nightmare with it much slower pace and its focus on puzzles. It's a pretty nice throwback to the franchise old days. But the real treat here is the new version of the Mercenaries mode called "The Mercenaries Reunion". More characters, more costume, this edition is packed with a ton of content.
If you liked Resident Evil 4, you will like Resident Evil 5, that simple. Why? Well, because all the events are the same. I won't name anything because I will spoil the story for someone, but there is a lot of similarities with RE4. The ambientation is awesome, the sound treatment stunning, and you can play it over and over again to unlock new weapons. Plus you can play all the bonus content, specially the one that involves Chris and Jill, which is nothing but great! One of my favorite RE games from this generation, completely recommended!
