Story
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.

Exciting Two-Player Co-op Mode
The new cooperative gameplay element focuses on the realities of a dual-agent mission, highlighting the ways in which Redfield and Alomar must work together to survive the unexpected, while still allowing them to split up and work alone. To help you maximize the potential of this setup, two-player online and off-line co-op modes ensure that you have options when aligning yourself with a partner.

Stereoscopic 3D with the PC Version
PC gamers will get the ultimate Resident Evil package in the new PC version as new features will include NVIDIA's new GeForce 3D Vision technology (wireless 3D Vision glasses sold separately). Fans that pick up the PC version of Resident Evil 5 will be the first to experience stereoscopic 3D out of screen effects as their living rooms are transformed into the world of Kijuju. Infected Majini coming at players from every angle, dust flying in and out of screen and the scariest bosses to date are taken up a notch. Resident Evil 5 for PC represents a whole new level of fear that players will never forget. Stereoscopic 3D is also supported in all of the game's cut scenes - an industry first.

An Unprecedented Level of Fear
Co-producer and series veterans Jun Takeuchi (Lost Planet) and Masachika Kawata (Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition, Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles) unleash an unprecedented level of fear for the next generation in Resident Evil 5, the sequel to one of the highest-rated video games in history according to Metacritic.com and Gamerankings.com.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better on the PC October 19, 2009
By Ben
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had a PS3 briefly and RE5 was one of the games I really liked on it, but I think the PC version is the best. Any PC gamer will know there is just no comparison with the better accuracy you get with a mouse and keyboard versus a gamepad. Much more precise shooting, this is especially evident in the fast paced mercenaries mode. The game overall is pretty fun but my one complaint is that the story mode is a little short, compared to RE4 at least. Though the mercenaries mode hugely makes up for it with replay value (unlike older RE titles where I would only replay once in a blue moon). Its intense, addictive and incredibly fun - one of the best additions and modes to RE. Nothing like getting attacked by hordes of zombies and having a huge arsenal of weapons to fend them off..! Also in the PC version they added a new No Mercy mode with even larger swarms and it is absolutely nuts. Mercenaries is a blast and a MUST PLAY for all RE fans. Finally, the graphics look slightly better than the console version. You can make out a bit more detail in the PC version and it sure looks pretty. All in all I will say RE5 is right up there with RE2 and 4 as my favorites in the series. There seems to be a lot of negative reviews out there because the old RE survival horror style was abandoned. But I think the reverse would happen if they continued the same formula, there would be the "seen it, done that before" complaints. Personally I lovedd the new fresh direction RE4 took and RE5 just builds on that with more enemies and weapon upgrades.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is not the traditional Resident Evil January 8, 2010
By Webhead
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me start by mentioning I'm old enough that I played the original Resident Evil when it was a newly released PlayStation (I) game. I've played all of the noteworthy RE versions (i.e. Zero, RE1, 2, 3, Code Veronica, and 4). The graphics for RE 5 (PC version) are incredible. A number of reviews mention that this port is better than the game consoles. I can see why. The game has a decent fun factor, but here's the problem: it isn't Resident Evil in the survival horror tradition established by all the previous versions, including 4. With RE 4 the franchise did head in a new direction, finding a niche between the original RE games with the adventure/puzzle solving aspect, and the more common first person shooters that are basically shoot 'em and move on. I loved RE 4. It perfectly captured the best of both worlds. Apparently Capcom decided that the natural evolution was to move RE further into the FPS domain. Well, they succeeded. I'm no longer playing an RE game--I'm playing a shooter that is otherwise just like all the other FPS games, except that it's not a first person perspective, it's third person. There is no real story here like you came to expect in the early RE games. Really there isn't any story at all--just a continuation of RE 4's storyline, but without the logic puzzles and adventure aspect from the early games that RE 4 had managed to retain. There's lots of non-stop shooting--and no story worth mentioning. So if you want a really great FPS that is actually a 3rd person shooter with great graphics that is made by Capcom, this game should be perfect for you. IMHO, Capcom should have stuck with the RE 4 formula. RE 5 is a fun game, but not the traditional Resident Evil I have been seriously addicted to in the past. I could have survived without this one...

5.0 out of 5 stars No other options, then why not. December 8, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have played Resident Evil 5 on both PC and Xbox 360. Between the two if you have both systems avaliable to you, get the 360 version and here is why.

Xbox 360:
Pros:
1. Easy for those who have difficulty playing with a keyboard and mouse.
2. Released DLC that was not released for the PC version

Cons:
1. Missing one mode for Mercenaries mode that was released for PC "No Mercy"
2. Inventory is a pain with only four quick swap buttons on the d-pad.
3. DLC has to be downloaded offline (Only comes with a ticket for download of all DLC)

PC:
Pros:
1. Much easier to target enemies with the recticule instead of a laser sight.
2. Movements have become ever so slightly less tank-like.

Cons:
1. Lacks the DLC of both 360 and PS3
2. Requires logging onto Windows Live to play with your account.
3. No split screen.

The beginning idea:
Chris Redfield is sent to Africa to try and capture the terrorist Irving with his new partner Sheva Alomar. Like most games it is never that easy and both protaganists run into problems while on the way to the transaction point between Alpha Team and Irving.

If you only have a PC then I would recommend this for any Resident Evil fan. For a stretch I would also recommend to new players to the franchise, but if the option is there, get the Xbox 360 or PS3 Gold Edition of the game.

For what is given as a basic game (before the two platforms got DLC) this has more original content such as one new outfit only on PC for Chris and Sheva. "No Mercy" mode in Mercenaries, even with the DLC is not avaliable on the 360 or PS3 version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sets the standard for console to PC ports September 20, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Gameplay - Solid action game, the puzzles of earlier RE games are gone. The focus is entirely on action, and it's a good change. The RE puzzles have always been easy, just a series of "Do I remember where I saw the X shaped keyhole before?". If you're only playing single player, I'd say pass and get another game. If you have a friend to play with, definitely pick this up. This is what Left 4 Dead should have been.

Sound/Music - Solid, though the volume seems a little low to me.

Controls - Mouse aiming, MUCH better than the port of Resident Evil 4. You still have to stand still to shoot, but fans of the series should be used to this by now.

Online play - The co-op main campaign is amazing, other modes are all right... but if you aren't interested in the main campaign, you're better off just purchasing Left 4 Dead for a zombie slaughter fest. One thing I must note - you can NOT communicate with keyboard, communication MUST be through microphone which is somewhat of a disappointment (I find a lot of people don't have mics or are too shy to talk).

Overall - Game runs great on even some low end PCs. Kudos to Capcom. Great game for multiplayer, but if you're just looking for single player I'd suggest waiting for the price to drop a bit.
