Variety: Resident Evil 5 Review

Capcom's Resident Evil franchise pioneered the survival horror videogame genre in 1996 and brought it to new heights with 2005's best selling Resident Evil 4, spawning three movies along the way. But sometimes a revered veteran falls behind the times. The highly anticipated Resident Evil 5 offers few terrifying moments or new ideas, mixing tired features from the series' previous incarnations with poorly implemented ones borrowed from modern games, all set against a backdrop with disturbing racial overtones. While it has already scared up a massive initial shipment of 4 million units, Resident Evil 5 is unlikely to survive gamers' long-term judgments.

The story is too old to be commented.
