5 / 10.0

This remastered version of Resident Evil 5 has not changed even a bit. The graphics are still the same as in the original one, 7 years ago. This "remaster" is for the players that have not tried the original.

It’s incredibly disappointing to see Resident Evil 5 get such a bare bones release on modern day consoles.

9 / 10.0

When I first played Resident Evil 5 back in 2009, my enjoyment came from the new way the game played, new enemies, and new environments. Today, however, my enjoyment comes from remembering all the good times I had playing this game back in the day both by myself and with others. While the game still is pretty fantastic, it just does not hold my attention the way it originally did.

Resident Evil 5 is a confounding game: it can be criticised for both mirroring its predecessor too closely and also for changing too much. When all's said and done, though, it's a decent romp that's brilliant when it's not bewildering – and when you consider the sheer amount of content included for the asking price, it's worth a punt. Plus, you get to punch a boulder.
