TechTree: "When games like RE5 first started surfacing on the Web, all were excited about the visuals. Now in late 2008, when next-gen is basically current-gen, gamers need a lot more than visuals. I played two levels of the game, the same levels that were shown off at various game shows. The two levels comprise about 20 min of gameplay, but the brief experience clearly showed a game with immense potential. You play as Chris Redfield the original protagonist, who looks lean and mean in his HD avatar. Sheva the much talked about female companion was also a part of the adventure, and as expected she does add some neat little touches."
