  • Summary: (Downloadable Content) This is the first installment of new content for RESIDENT EVIL 5. During the main story of RESIDENT EVIL 5, Chris Redfield alludes to a mission where he lost his partner Jill during a conversation with Sheva. Now you can find out what happened during that mission at Spencer's estate. This package also allows you to unlock two new characters in the all-new The Mercenaries Reunion. Play as one of the unsung heroes of the original RESIDENT EVIL, Barry Burton, or step into the designer-made high heels of one of RESIDENT EVIL's newest villains, Excella Gionne. There are also additional figures available in Extra Figures to round out this action-packed package. Expand

  1. A sublime pack for Resi veterans with great replay value. Essential. [May 2010, p.120]
  2. Lost in Nightmares is exactly what Resident Evil 5 should have been from the very beginning.
  3. It's short and a bit thin on content, but what's there is pretty, well-produced, and a satisfying if slightly silly curiosity for anyone who remembers the first Resident Evil even a little bit fondly.
  4. Lost in Nightmares is a shining example of what DLC should be; a short but sweet extension to the original story that offers something different from the main game whilst retaining its overall tone.
  5. 75
    Even if you enjoyed Resident Evil 5, chances are you've moved on by now and shouldn't rely on this content to draw you back in. But for diehard fans – myself included – Lost in Nightmares' revisiting of the series' past, replete with geeky, self-referential humor is definitely worth the modest asking price.
  6. All in all, a decent package for Resident Evil 5 fans, especially those who have a partner to tackle Lost In Nightmares with.
  7. I like the concept of returning to the mansion (or its doppelganger) with a new emphasis on teamwork, and I like the two additions to Mercenaries, but there isn’t enough substance in action, storytelling, nor the puzzles to make Lost in Nightmares stand out.

    Everything you could have dreamed of in a resident evil game all in one!! downsides are: a little short (but still a gud 3 or 4 plays replay) and no save system. Love it though!! Expand

    I'm surprised the reviewers are giving this DLC such low scores because in my opinion this is what Resident Evil 5 should've been. It's scary, tense, eerie, and a tease of what a true next-gen Resident Evil experience could be with today's technology. I just wish it had zombies, than it'd be perfect. Expand

    Even for $5, we expected more creatures to blast, rooms to explore and weapons to fire. Those glaring omissions make Lost in Nightmares a good, but not great journey into the world of survival horror. Good luck. The problem with a lot of these reviewers is that they were "expecting" more. For $5, I wasn't expecting much and quite honestly feel I got MORE than my moneys worth. Lost in Nightmares is amazing and if nothing else, serves as a $5 demo showcasing what RE6 could look like. Fix the door entry transition, and this would be a perfect 10. Expand
