So the first Resident Evil 5 review has been released by IGN and there are some interesting side stories around the review already.
First up we have the review itself which can be found here, all in all IGN have done a very nice job with the review and have convinced me even further that I need to pick up this title.
Their review had very little mention of nay racism in it apart from the bizarre economic system of the game which has you stealing from the village to buy guns which you then use to kill the villagers..
However over at VG247 they have uncovered a bit of a cover up by Capcom as they have specifically requested that the Island stage complete with spear chucking natives not be mentioned or shown in any reviews.
Luckily for us the Internet is a powerful thing and the afore mentioned Island stage can be viewed above.
If this stage is the source of the racism claims in Resident Evil 5 then the claims are complete garbage. That’s not racist, possibly a little naive from the developers but most assuredly not racist.
The rest of stage can be seen in the videos embedded through this link.
Oh yeah the score.. Resident Evil 5 has walked away with a 9.0 on it’s first attemptâ€¦ not bad at all.
