    It may not be a radically new Resident Evil 5, but the PC version of the game still manages to hold its own with an improved control scheme and extra Mercenaries mode.
  2. Resident Evil 5 isn't exactly perfect, but it's so close, none of its flaws upset the experience as a whole. Buy it for yourself, but bring a friend for maximum enjoyment.
  3. There a few things that we do not like on the PC (controls for example). But this conversion is a lot better than the catastrophe that Resident Evil 4 was on the PC.
  4. Resident Evil 5 is "only" an amazing game, a label that the 90% of the third person shooters would want for themselves. The cooperative mode is just sensational and the story mode is plenty filled with non-stop action. The huge amount of contents will make you forget the lack of any kind of innovation in its concept.
  5. The single-player and co-op intertwine really well.

    Although not as good a game as four, five is still extremely entertaining and this time even very well converted! [Nov 2010]

    Where did this famous horror go? RE5 still could have been a great action game. If only the controls were suited for the action game. Co-op mode is worth trying you can curse level design and A.I. all together. [Oct 2009]

    I have played a bit of this on PS3 then on PC and it looks a lot better, especially the resolution causing the image to be more crisp instead I have played a bit of this on PS3 then on PC and it looks a lot better, especially the resolution causing the image to be more crisp instead of upscaled 720P. Also the framerate is no problem, the engine is very optimized and I can run this maxed out in DX10 easily. The controls aren't that bad, I've played other pc ports like Dead Space, Lost Planet, etc. You should just customize controls or simply learn it. I don't know why others complain about not being able to run and shoot when all the RE games have been like that, and it'll probably stay like that for quite a while. Expand

I find using the keyboard and mouse a little bit challenging, and standard controllers won't work. It's best then to get an XBOX360 controller for ease and compatibility. Gameplay wise, Resident Evil 5 is a little less creepy than Resident Evil 4, but, in my opinion, a little more fast paced. The new save system and inventory system takes some time to get used to, but otherwise, all's great with this game. The extras add a nice punch, and the smooth graphics deserve a thumbs up. Verdict: An immersive experience indeed. Expand

    I don't compare this game to any other Resident Evil and I've never played any of the previous titles before. I have played this game and haveI don't compare this game to any other Resident Evil and I've never played any of the previous titles before. I have played this game and have beaten this game the most out of any ps3 game in my collection and that I've rented from gamefly. There is something about the graphics, the story, the gameplay and the customization of weapons that keeps dragging me back in and making want to replay it over and over again. It isn't scary, it isn't horrifying and the game is filled with action more than survival horror elements. If you can get past this fact and play it with an open mind (especially if your an RE fan), you'll enjoy this ACTION game. Expand

    The story is great and told well, even though it's nothing really new in the RE franchise. The game's graphics fit in with other The story is great and told well, even though it's nothing really new in the RE franchise. The game's graphics fit in with other recent action game titles but they do not really shine. If it weren't for the controls, I'd be giving this title an 8 for solo and a 9 for coop. But I found the console-like controls to be extremely frustrating and I never grew into them the whole game. While this maybe an awesome title to play with a controller, with a keyboard (at least to me) it is not. Expand

You'd think after four previous versions of the game, they would get things right. Different mouse sensitivities depending on if you are running or walking causes dizziness. The ability to buy guns and not ammo just represents a bad design decision. Interactive cut scenes just cause death while you try to relax in between levels. An obvious console port that is painful to play with a keyboard & mouse; yet the inaccuracy of a game controller for first person shooting frustrates matters even more. The best feature of this game is the co-op mode combined with decent graphics, but frequent disconnects will keep you looking for something else to play. Expand

    The controls alone make this game a waste of time. I can't believe the user reviews are so high.
