Resident Evil 5 Review | Halloween Love
2009 was proper across the finish of a tough patch in my life the place I used to be primarily homeless, and to maintain it easy, I’ll simply say, I didn’t have the means to be maintaining on the most recent video games, so this one handed me by. I’ve performed practically each single predominant recreation within the RE franchise now, with only some remaining blind spots (5 was one among them). Properly, in 2021, I can lastly verify this one off the record.
I used to be a bit apprehensive about it getting into as a result of RE has at all times been strictly a single-player expertise, however in 5 you’re meant to play with a companion (as in an actual individual, both a pal or a random on-line participant) and in case you play alone, you’re coping with an AI companion the entire time.
I’ll say, that it was irritating just a few instances, the place my companion would block me and get me killed or get caught or go off and die. Nonetheless, they labored on sharpening the AI sufficient that it was fairly rattling clean and even useful at instances (with out doing an excessive amount of heavy-lifting for me).
This was additionally what should be essentially the most action-packed RE recreation of your complete franchise, as in additional motion with automobiles, and swarms, and lots of gun-wielding enemies. It felt extra like a Tomb Raider or Metallic Gear Stable recreation at instances.
I used to be stunned simply how very similar to RE4 it was too, one thing that didn’t occur once more till Village, with having the ability to accumulate treasure, improve weapons, and so forth. It additionally marks the ultimate recreation within the sequence the place you’ll be able to’t transfer AND purpose on the identical time, which was fairly archaic for 2009. Even so, it was a enjoyable recreation and I loved my time in it.
And… there was a chainsaw man. You possibly can’t go incorrect with a chainsaw man. At all times terrifying.
I additionally performed by way of the 2 story DLCs, “Misplaced in Nightmares” (which was extra of a traditional RE expertise), and “Determined Escape” (which was mainly simply Mercenaries, however with cutscenes and checkpoints).
