Pre-Review: Resident Evil 5

Content at a glance:

Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language

This is a survival horror game in which players assume the role of one of two protagonists who must stop the spread of a virus. Players kill humanoid monsters – they are zombie-like and infected with a parasite – by using guns, rifles, and machine guns, while solving puzzles and collecting items to complete the game. In most game modes, players are rewarded with items or points for the number of kills they perform. Red blood spray is depicted when the monsters are shot, while heads, arms, and legs that get blown off can quickly regenerate. Some enemies are able to mutilate and/or decapitate characters' heads with an assortment of swords, chainsaws, and claws. The dialogue contains strong profanity (e.g., "f*ck," "sh*t," and "b*tch"), particularly during cutscenes.

The biohazard threat has not ended: Just when it seemed that the menace of Resident Evil had been destroyed, along comes a new terror to send shivers down players’ spines. Chris Redfield, returning Resident Evil hero, has followed the path of the evil literally around the globe. After joining a new organization, Chris heads to Africa where the latest bioterrorism threat is literally transforming the people and animals of the city into mindless, maddened creatures. He is joined by a new partner, Sheva Alomar, who lends her strength, intelligence and sharp-shooting skills to the mission. In order to survive, Chris and Sheva must work together to take on the challenges of discovering the truth behind this evil plot. Utilizing a revolutionary new 2-player co-op mode of gameplay, players assume control of either Chris or Sheva and experience Resident Evil in new ways. In Resident Evil 5, has players fearing the daylight as much as they have feared shadow in previous games.
