About writes: "The Resident Evil of 2009 is a rather different beast from the Resident Evil of 1996. The pacing, gameplay, and even the enemies are completely different from the way the series started. These changes, for the most part, have been positive and 2005's Resident Evil 4 stands as one of the best games of all time thanks to these changes. Resident Evil 5 takes that award winning formula and twists it even more away from the series' roots. Did this change pay off?"
