When it was first released, the Resident Evil series was billed as a survival horror game. Ammunition was scarce and untold horrors were unleashed upon the player. This lasted until Resident Evil 4, which shifted the series away from survival horror to the action genre. Resident Evil 5, soon to be released on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, continues the slide away from horror started by the previous game. Resident Evil 5 once again stars Chris Redfield, who fans will remember as the protagonist of the original Resident Evil. Chris is now a member of the BSAA, an international group who deals with handling biological crimes. His current assignment finds him in Africa, where a new bio-weapon not only leads to present day threats, but unearths past threats Chris has thought to be long buried.
