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 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 offline co-op modes ensure that you have options when aligning yourself with a partner.

New Episodes Episodes and Costumes
In addition to all the campaign gameplay content included in the initial standard console release, Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition also includes two all-new episodes. These include "Lost in Nightmares" in which Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine journey back to the Spencer Mansion from the original Resident Evil to solve its puzzles, and uncover the secrets of the Umbrella Corporation; and "Desperate Escape", featuring Jill Valentine and BSAA agent Josh Stone fighting to escape the Tricell facility, and the unrelenting waves of enemies at their heels. The Gold Edition also adds two new costume packs containing a total of four new costumes. These new costumes feature full playability both in-game and in cutscenes, ensuring that Gold Edition players always fight evil in style.

Online Versus Mode now Included
Originally available only as an additional digital content download, the Resident Evil 5 online versus mode comes packaged along with the Gold Edition. In it players with free PlayStation Network memberships take control of Chris, Sheva and other RE5 favorites in online battles of up to four players where the choice is yours whether to fight alone or with a team in two game variations which include "Slayers", where you compete for points by defeating the zombie Majini, and "Survivors", where you fight against human competition.

Mercenaries Reunion
Mercenary Mode, was an unlockable mode available at the end of the single player campaign in the original releases of the game that hearkened back to the franchises roots in the Horror genre. Mercenaries Reunion is an updated version of that mode included in the Gold Edition. It is an all-out, arcade style zombie fest in which players must eliminate as many enemies as they can in a limited amount of time, using only the weapons and ammo that is found in the play environment, and a curtailed number of inventory slots. Available both offline and online, Mercenaries Reunion features eight new playable characters and weapon load outs, providing players with additional opportunities and challenges.

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. Revolutionizing the series with an unbelievable level of detail, realism and control, Resident Evil 5 is certain to bring new fans to the series as well as satisfy veteran players. These incredible changes to both the gameplay and world of Resident Evil make this a must-have game for gamers across the globe.

Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'll review the "Resident Evil 5" game at the end of the review. I want to address this Gold Edition for new buyers.

Simply put, I think getting the original standard release is the better buy, especially if you're not going to play this game online. If you're only going to use the single-player options, the bonuses that you're getting from this Gold Edition are:
* Extra Costumes - who cares?
* Online Versus Mode - you're not going to use it
* Updated Mercenaries Mode - it's not that big of an upgrade
* Two Bonus Episodes - these are solid 1-hour add-ons, but not worth the extra money

Let's address the two bonus episodes. "Lost In Nightmares" and "Desperate Escape" were originally downloads that are now being included on this disc. They're fun extras, but they're not worth 20 dollars if you're playing offline and/or alone. Similar to the bonus content in "Resident Evil 4", these are fun diversions, but not must-play experiences.

If you're a multiplayer gamer, jump right into this Gold Edition. There is a ton of content for you to enjoy. But offline users would be better served to get the original version of "Resident Evil 5", which (as of this writing) is only 20 bucks. Everyone should play this game, but this Gold Edition was meant for co-op or versus play.

The Gold Edition is also compatible with the PlayStation Move. I haven't tested the Move with anything, but if it plays as well as I've heard from a few others, then that's really the only catch for single-player gamers. Personally, I'm willing to bet that most gamers prefer a controller in their hands.

GAME REVIEW
As for "Resident Evil 5" itself, there's really not a whole lot to say. It's basically "RE 4" in Africa with co-op elements.

5.0 out of 5 stars The complete version of Resident Evil 5 March 16, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
**As a special side note please be aware that ONLY the PlayStation 3 version includes all the content on 1 disc, the 360 version of Gold Edition comes with a download voucher, which requires High speed internet access and a Xbox Live account to download the extra content without those you can not access the extra content on Xbox 360**

This game is essentially a HD version of RE4 with a co-op (2 player) online or AI (computer controlled) partner. This game is best with another player controlling Sheva but its perfectly fine as a single player game too. This Gold Edition re-release includes the following:

Lost in Nightmares bonus mission

Desperate Escape bonus mission

Mercenaries Reunion battle game

Barry Burton, Rebecca Chambers and Excella Gionne as playable characters in Mercenaries Reunion mode.

4 new costumes (2 for Sheva and 2 for Chris)

Extra in game figures to collect

Online player vs player Versus mode.

Overall this is a very good deal for those that passed on the original release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Move control scheme identical to RE4 wii controls December 20, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
While I believe that this game is inferior in mood and setting to RE4, I felt a need to give this a 5 star rating for adding co-op in RE5 as well as PS3 Move support for this Gold edition.

Because it wasn't touched on in any of the reviews that I read before purchase, I want to point out that you can configure the Move controls to function exactly the same as the Wii version setup for RE4. This provides for a much more approachable but no less intense experience that I particularly appreciated. RE4 was the only shooter-type game that I could ever get my wife into and that was mostly because of the intuitive control scheme with the Wiimote and nunchuck. As such, this gold edition was a perfect purchase for my wife and I.

If you want in-depth opinions on the campaign, I think several other reviews touch on that better than I could hope to. I just wanted to applaude the efficiency and care given to implementing move controls for this title.

3.0 out of 5 stars GOOD, BUT NOT GREAT October 31, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
If you are familiar with the Resident Evil series you will no doubt have played most of the series, especially the main series, if however you have never played any of the series or any of the series except Resident Evil 4 then you will be blown away by this game which will be one of the big releases of 2009. However if you have played Resident Evil 4 you may be somewhat disappointed that this is not an improvement on that game or is no where near as good.

Yes the graphics are stunning, the sound is crystal clear (especially when played through a 5.1 amp) and the cut scenes are great. But when compared to Resident Evil 4 you feel something is missing that would make this a truly great game, maybe they set the bar too high with Resident Evil 4 which was a breath of fresh air when it was released in 2005.

The game itself is enjoyable as you control the returning Chris Redfield who has bulked up since we last saw him and he is now joined by a new partner Sheva who will accompany you throughout the game, so you will have to make sure you keep her alive as well. She will also pester you for ammo so keep her topped up but keep the good stuff for yourself and use her to carry other items like first aid spray and bullets.

The game uses the same over the shoulder view that was used in Resident Evil 4, and you will as always have a good variety of weapons that you can find and buy throughout the game. The game is set in Africa so the locations are stunning, the enemies are the same type that were in Resident Evil 4 as in that they are no longer zombies and can run at you and attack more freely than the zombies ever could. There are different bosses scattered throughout the game but you shouldn't have to much trouble dispatching them.
