Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition, the Playstation Move-compatible version of Capcom's premiere title, is due for release on September 17th, and you can nab it off Zavvi for just £12.99, with free delivery for release date!
RE5 was a rather successful game, selling millions and copies but, in the run-up to its release, garnering a rather bad amount of press. It's old news and something I won't bore you with now, but RE5's racial sensibilities were questioned. If you're not bothered by this, then RE5's blend of horror-infused, co-operative zombie-slaying may be just the ticket, if you can stomach the stubbornly old-school controls and fairly awful dialogue.
Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition bolsters the original release with PS Move compatibility. The Playstation Move is Sony's answer to the Wiimote, a wand-like, motion-sensing controller, which, in RE5: Gold Edition's case, can be used like a gun, directing the Move remote at the screen and blasting away at the hordes of infected locales, swamp-lurking crocodiles and inexplicable scorpion-bat-thing.
I was very excited when RE5 came out, as I'm an old fan of the series and was looking forward to how Capcom would build on the genre-defining RE4 for the next generation of consoles. How disappointing it was when I discovered not only had Capcom failed to push forward with this terrific foundation, but that they'd essentially copied it, animation for animation, and ported it to the PS3, albeit with a shiny new coat of paint. If anything, RE5 is inferior to RE4, with less space to explore, less atmosphere to the locales, and a general sense of deja-vu pervading everything from the controls to the boss fights. I hope PS Move-compatibility injects some much-needed excitement into the game, as its sorely lacking in ambition.
