Resident Evil 5: Lost in Nightmares Review


Time to go back to the place that started it all.

Resident Evil 5 Review


The evil is back.

Ever since the original Resident Evil, there's always been a reason to replay the games. Granted the last two games, haven't had nearly as much as the predecessors, but still the series has provided quality replay value since the beginning. RE5...

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City


It would've been very easy for Capcom to makeOperation Raccoon City a naked cash run, and to its credit, it isn't. A simple Call of Duty clone with Resident Evil branding all over it would probably have moved a few million units before anyone noticed,...

A few major glitches further mar the game, but that can probably be ironed out with patches. In co-op, zombies have a habit of teleporting around and shrugging off shots that should've killed them due to lag. In Versus play, it's not unusual to see a...

Resident Evil 5


Resident Evil is aboutfear; that single, paralyzing emotion that is designed to prevent human beings from placing themselves in harm's way. Some view it as the original human defense mechanism, a thing to be embraced and heeded while others view it as...

All in all, the game is a total blast and thoroughly enjoyable, with a frenetic pacing that doesn't let up for the entire run of the game. It's just not scary in the least. The total experience can be summed up to be a lot closer to that of a Gears of...

Resident Evil 6


Resident Evil 6 is a strange thing. We're talking about a game where an out-of-control helicopter smashes buildings and grinds alongside a train

Resident Evil 6 is a conflicted game that offers a fun but flawed core experience punctuated by some outstanding moments of action and suspense, along with a host of questionable design choices that often hobble what can be (and often is) an otherwise...

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles HD


With any talk of zombie killing, Resident Evil is always at the top of my list. I love the Resident Evil series, my absolute favorite being Outbreak

The HD collection brings the on-rails action to the PS3 with zombies and leeches and yeti looking things, oh my! The Umbrella Chronicles and Darkside Chronicles keep you entertained with huge worm looking enemies and zombies. Yes, more zombies. I’ve...

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City


Take one of the most successful horror franchises in the video game world and hand it off to a tactical military game developer and throw in more

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is an unfortunate addition to an otherwise great franchise. With this being the second of three Resident Evil games coming out this year it would probably be best to just skip this one entirely unless you are a...

Resident Evil 5: Desperate Escape


Another fine helping of DLC love. The second DLC released for Resident Evil 5 is here and with it a much different approach. Lost in Nightmares was more of a...

Plenty of action ; New Mercs characters ; Intense final scene

No new enemy types ; Not much story involved ; Recycled levels

[E3 2010] Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition Move Hands-On


Oh boy oh boy oh boy, we got to take Move for a spin in an actual third-party game. Impressions inside.

In all honestly, the experience was new enough that we were eager to check things out again -- we'd never actually delved into the add-on content like the Lost in Nightmares and Desperate Escape single-player expansions, so if nothing else this gives...

We played RE5 with the PlayStation Move, and lived to tell about it.
