Released to much controversy, due to its supposedly racist depiction of African villagers, Resident Evil 5 defied the critics to earn an impressive 86/100 on MetaCritic, with critics praising the scope, visuals and unexpected co-operative features.
The fifth instalment in the popular zombie-genocide simulator, Resident Evil 5 follows Chris Redfield, a previous protagonist from an earlier game, who has been hired B.S.A.A. to investigate rumours of possible bioterrorism in a remote African village. Chris is escorted by a local, Sheva Alomar, and together they uncover a nefarious scheme to resurrect the T-Virus, and encounter an old enemy. Their mission drags them from dusty, sun-baked shanty towns, swarming with infected villagers, to subterranean caverns and swamps.
Resident Evil pioneered the Survival-Horror genre, with its unique blend of intentionally sluggish controls and forced perspectives. Resident Evil 4, a last-generation classic, stripped away such archaic genre tropes, reinventing the series. With this in mind, it’s disappointing how strictly the fifth game adheres to the fourth, with barely any changes or significant improvements made to the control scheme or basic set-up and design.
Resident Evil 5 is undoubtedly a great game, with top-tier graphics, thrilling set-pieces and enjoyable co-op features, but bar the improved visuals, the differences between the fourth and fifth instalments are minimal, despite the four-year gap.
