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.

The replay of the main campaign is "eh" because things become really silly once you're walking around a small village with a gatling gun... but it has another mode which kept my nephew entertained for a long time after the main story.
The story, is downright awesome. The way it seamlessly connects to the rest of the series is amazing. I found easy to follow with A LOT of twists and turns. It takes you through an emotional roller coaster, made my heart stop a few times. There's sorrow, anger, happiness, ect. It drew me in and didn't let go. I had to find out what happened next, very likable protagonists and very well done antagonists in the story. This was my favorite part of the game, I felt completely connected to the characters and story, like a game should.
A very difficult game at a few points, that is doable. I like a challenge, but I want it to be something I can do at some point. There were 4 points in the game I REALLY had to work at for awhile. Amazing bosses! You have to go beyond the normal point and shoot, almost like puzzles to find out how to defeat them. Very well done.
Wide variety of environments in the plot. I liked that while it took place in Africa, each different chapter had a very different feel to it.
The selection of weapons is awesome, and upgrading them is fun.
Lots of awesome extra goodies in the game.
I cannot think of any right now.
I HIGHLY recommend it. Probably in my top 5 favorite story play throughs. Amazing experience!
On a personal level, I miss good old zombies sometimes. Something about people with infected eyes just don't illicit the 'jump' moments that regular Zeds can. And I found the black ooze/tentacle monster to be overused in this game. Not that gameplay was redundant, it just seemed like an easy way out for monster creation; just making black masses of tentacles. That said, there is nothing like the old school "You can aim, but not walk" controls out there anymore like in this game. It adds to the genuine feeling of 'creepiness' of the game.
Resident Evil 5 is truly a great game that should be judged on its own merits, not by how far it strayed from the old RE games.
If your into the Resident Evil Series, then it's worth having in your collection at the least. Many people where not overly happy with this installment of the Series...Personally I did like it, but there where elements that could have been cleaned up a bit. Capcom did an excellent job of fixing what most gamers saw as flaws when releasing the Gold Edition, and even further making RE 6 even better...My bottom line...Either you like the Series or you don't...I do. So I would recommend this title to those collecting the games.
