Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition Review | NZGamer

Now, in time with PlayStation Move arriving and a fourth Resident Evil movie in cinemas, Capcom have released the Gold Edition of Resident Evil 5. Obviously the main core of the game remains unchanged, but for those who haven’t had the opportunity to play RE5, the Gold Edition packs in a lot of extras with a great price tag.

The story is too old to be commented.

i might pick this up along with Move. i was afraid of 'tank-like-response'.

It is worth it. I had RE5 and then traded it for the Gold Edition when that premiered. It had been on the shelf waiting on the Move launch. Like many gamers I find the B Control configuration preferable. It has been a blast and alters the dynamic of the game. And I find myself headshooting far more than my original play though.

sounds cool.. thanks mate!

It is worth it. Move adds much to the gameplay and I actually prefer using move over the DS3 with this game. It is awesome.

@morganfell Same here, I like to play using the B control scheme and I also find myself getting a lot of head shots.

Just bought this yesterday, will hopefully try it out later tonight but if I don't get the chance, then tomorrow.

I like it, good stuff and I agree with pretty much everything. Although I still think part 4 was better

I was a bit disappointed with the Move control setup. It's like RE4 whereas I was hoping for a bounding box type of aiming like in Killzone 3. I wanted to use the Move to turn the camera and the character.

Fortunately I am enjoying Gladiator Duel using two Moves, I don't care much for RE5 anymore :)

...its not enough to make me revisit RE5 again.

I still remember the infected running full steam at you only to start moving slow when they get closer. Shooting the crap out of them and it does not even result in any visible damage yet alone a blood stain.

I would have been more excited to see an HD makeover of RE4.


With HD ports of PS2 games coming to PS3 more and more often, I can totally see it coming, and with Move support.

I liked RE5 more than 4, but I think that was just because the story was more linked to the main story line and had a lot more Wesker in it.

I'm sorry but....
