    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

    Tem muito tempo que joguei, lembro que a ambientação é bem legal e é bem mais dinâmico que o 4, no geral é um jogo legal.

I genuinely feel there is little replay-ability in this title, once you know the story that’s it really! The games have become way to action orientated and linear to really challenge you further… Sure the hardest difficulty setting is beyond ridiculously hard, but it’s more annoying than challenging! On first play however my experience was genuinely a good one and it’s nice to have a partner join you in the game, even just to carry some extra loot… It’s just a shame how the franchise is diminishing in quality and seriously forgetting its horror survival genre defining roots!

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