Resident Evil 5 - Sheva

Never an ugly sidekick

The number thirteen has always been shrouded in a macabre and mysterious light. What better way than to celebrate the thirteen harrowing years that the Resident Evil saga has provided us with. It seems only yesterday that I was screaming in terror after a group of zombies dived at my through a window for the first time. That’s enough nostalgia for now.

XBOX 360 and Playstation 3 owners have been given the chance to preview the latest game in the series; Resident Evil 5. Taking place in Africa, the player takes control of Chris Redfield, the all round apple pie scoffing muscle man from the first game, as he investigates reports of a viral outbreak. In the Resident Evil world, Viral outbreak is usually followed by mass amount of zombies.

Chris is joined by Alomar, a beautiful local who provides support and teamwork to the gameplay. To look at, the game is astounding. Your eyes adjust to the ingame lighting and the detail on surroundings provides an in depth experience. The infected locals are vicious and well armed.

Textbook standoff

One of the demo levels required me to barricade Chris inside a house in an attempt to hold them off, only to have the windows, door, and even the ceiling to be penetrated by a horde of bloodthirsty zombies.With 2 playable levels on this demo, Online and offline 2 player support included, I am already shaking with anticipation for March. An intense experience indeed.
