Previously only seen during cut scenes of the original RESIDENT EVIL 5, the first new episode titled “LOST IN NIGHTMARES”, finds BSAA agent, Chris Redfield, working with his partner, Jill Valentine, as they investigate Ozwell E. Spencer’s hideaway. Spencer, the evil mastermind and co-founder of Umbrella Corporation, has been hiding a new evil deep within the basement of his mansion. Chris and Jill discover this grotesque evil standing in their way as the two enter deeper into the catacombs beneath the mansion. Simultaneous with the release of “LOST IN NIGHTMARES”, new costumes for Chris and Sheva will be made available, allowing the player to experience RESIDENT EVIL 5 with a fresh new look and feel through both game play and cut-scene playback. A new refresh of Mercenaries Mode, “ THE MERCENARIES REUNION”, gives players new playable characters and weapon load outs which provide players additional challenges as they aim to shoot down as many enemies as they can within a limited time. Each piece of downloadable content will contain two new playable characters. The GOLD EDITION will feature all eight.

After buying the Limited Edition, I was a little bitter about this re-release. But after selling it and purchasing this version, I'm pretty fine with it. All content released for the game, including Versus mode, is made available and I pretty much prefer that than downloads. Since my old save file still works, I can't complain.
Strangely I found the 2 Extra Bonus Chapters to be more enjoyable than the actual title itself. They did a better job of invoking the feelings I thought Resident Evil 5 could have done better. "Lost in Nightmares" has the old school scary Resident Evil vibe we're all used to. It's what Resident Evil 5 should have been. My only gripes with it were that I wish it was longer and had more enemies. Nevertheless it somewhat fills the void for those who miss the old titles and not being able to play as Jill in the main campaign. "Desperate Escape" is the more action oriented chapter of the two, not scary, but intense. What "Lost in Nightmares" lacks in enemies is all made up for in "Desperate Escape". These extra chapters improve on the main campaign in bite-sized chunks.
This Gold edition also adds a new mercenaries reunion mode featuring past characters like Barry and Rebecca. It's a nice throw-back for past Resident Evil fans like myself. Unfortunately, though, characters aren't interchangeable within each mode. Each mode is fixed with its set of characters.
Your old save file still works, but requires a new install of 6gb. You can delete your old 5gb install. The installs are rather big for the added content, so that could be a problem for some. If you don't want to buy, there's a complete bundle on PSN. Just know you're missing out on a Cool Slip cover with Chris and Jill on it if you choose not to. If you're a hardcore RE fan or haven't gotten the game yet, definitely pick this version.
Only problem is the computer always gets you killed and it uses the laser system like in PS2 RE4.
Those are the only problems that I have.
