It's action packed, tense, scary, brilliantly paced, full of "wow" moments, features incredible visuals, is jammed full of replay value and surprises from start to finish. Four years later gamers expect this and more from Resident Evil 5. While in most cases Capcom has delivered the goods, making what will undoubtedly be one of the best games of 2009, it doesn't quite have the magic that made Resi 4 so special. Thankfully Capcom has clearly learnt from its mistakes with the PC version of Resident Evil 4 and delivered an excellent PC game that has the edge over the console versions in a few areas."
