It's one of the most anticipated titles of 2009, and for survival/horror fans, it most certainly tops the list. Resident Evil 5 is primed to deliver the freaky, jump-out-of-your-seat goods in spades, and gameplay trailers like these should quench your thirst for the next few months. In looking at the action, this style reminds us very much of EA's fantastic Dead Space, what with that dynamic over-the-shoulder view. Then again, we also have to remember that RE5's predecessor - the critically acclaimed RE4 that rejuvenated the franchise - helped to pioneer that camera view. RE5 may be faster and even more action-oriented, but provided the atmosphere is compelling, is that necessarily a bad thing? We don't think so.
