One of the most popular Resident Evil titles comes to PlayStation®4 in full 1080p HD with an increased frame rate. Featuring single-player and co-op modes and a dramatic storyline, this fully-loaded release includes all previously released DLC (Lost in Nightmares and Desperate Escape story expansions, Versus mode, extra figures and 4 costumes), and the previously PC-exclusive No Mercy mode, as well as the new mode “The Mercenaries United” which combines the two fan-favorite modes, The Mercenaries and The Mercenaries Reunion for an even more intense experience.

Despite a straight port, Resident Evil 5 has aged well. There is a good amount of content here which should make the wait easier for Resident Evil 7.
It’s incredibly disappointing to see Resident Evil 5 get such a bare bones release on modern day consoles. Capcom has shown in the past that they can add meaningful content (such as characters in Devil May Cry 4) and improve flawed releases, but this port does none of it. Instead, players are left with a heavily frustrating game that doesn’t deliver satisfying action yet focuses on that aspect. Resident Evil 5 had its time to shine in 2009, but even rose tinted glasses can’t save this game in 2016.
Even at the budgeted price point, Resident Evil 5’s reemergence feels a bit disappointing. The fact that Capcom was unable to obtain a steady 1080p 60fps on current generation consoles is astounding considering five-to-seven year old PC hardware is capable of running it significantly better. That’s not the worst part, though: Resident Evil 5 has not aged well.
