"I've been debating back and forth about what my favorite horror game is. It's such a hard decision because there are so many to choose from. I think I narrowed it down and I have to say Resident Evil 5 is definitely my personal favorite simply for the ability to play with my friends. I think a lot of people might mention Biohazard and various other games but there's something about Resident Evil 5 that really had me on the edge of my seat. I think I was really into the story line as well as the game play. Some will say that this is close to Resident Evil 4, but I think the new look in the graphics, as well as other improvements, really sets itself apart. That is probably another reason why I think this one is the best horror games, at least for me. This game is a must for multi-playing though. I will admit the team AI in this game isn't the best, it's sometimes frustrating, but it's great when you let others join in. Just make sure you're letting the right people in though! There's a lot of action in this game. Speaking of which, I'm going to go back in and take out Wesker again!"
"Another good version of the resident evil franchise. This game will keep you entertained for weeks if you decide to play through the storyline over and over again. There were little details that I missed the first few run throughs. The game has many peek-a-boo and gotcha moments that had me falling off the edge of my seat. I had to turn down the volume of my computer at certain points of the game so that I wouldn't freak my self out while going through the story line. There were moments when I could feel my heart beating faster and my palms sweating due to anticipation of something scary happening or something that already happened that I hadn't gotten over yet."
"I'm a HUGE horror game fan. My friends were telling me about their favorite horror games to play on Steam and one of them suggested Resident Evil 5. They said it'll scare the pants off of me. I downloaded it and, boy, were they right! It's a super scary game. The graphics are amazing (some of the best I've seen) and the atmosphere of the game is so creepy. Not to mention the cool story... which really gets creepy at several points. I really have been enjoying the game and I think you will too if you love horror games. Give it a shot!"
"Boy did I have a great time playing this! And I was so convinced I would hate it because I thought the original could never be surpassed. Not true... This is the real stuff and it will hijack your brain and get you addicted. I'm not lying, it's actually really hard for me to stop playing to do something else right now. They really kept the great core of the game while adding a lot of amazing new elements. It reacts well and fast, it takes you places (scary places that is) and the stories are very very good. Don't miss out on this!"
"Resident Evil 5 and the other newer games in the series have drifted a bit from what the original games were about - the horror elements have kind of been downplayed. Now there's more focus on action and quick time events. The latter elements demonstrate, to me, fairly lazy design - scripted sequences of button pushing really don't build tension that well. This game still holds up fairly well against its peers, I guess I am mostly just dissatisfied with the direction the industry as a whole is taking."
"Resident Evil 5 is generally fun, though the series has been kind of moving away from the more horror-centric and atmospheric gameplay of its earlier years. Overall, this game seems slightly inferior to its predecessor, Resident Evil 4. If you are attached to the horror themes of the first few games, you might not like the direction that the newer games are taken, but you'll probably appreciate this game more if you just like the general cast of characters from the earlier games. "
"Oh this game takes me back. I LOVE Resident Evil. I play all the games and watch all the movies. I just can't get enough. I love the story line of this one so much. Never did I expect it to take me deep into South Africa. It's so cool! there's also so many easter egg throw backs to the older games I use to play as a kid! Can't believe it's sill $20 because it is a bit older now but I don't care I highly recommend everyone buy and play this game. You wont regret it! "
"While it isn’t my favorite game in the series, Resident Evil 5 still captures the horror game magic and is one of the best horror games on steam. The graphics are amazing, but the gameplay feels recycled from Resident Evil 4, which isn’t a terrible thing, but a tad disappointing. This game will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time. Definitely go ahead and buy the Gold Edition to get the DLC – it is worth it. Great game to grab on a Steam Sale!"
"All the Resident Evils are great, and this is no exception. I'm not really a fan of Chris, but, I mean, the action here's decent. South Africa's always had a sort of white supremacist in the jungle vibe for me, especially with all the torches. At the end of the day, though, it's about the zombies. My only nitpick is that they labeled the 7th game 5. What, do they think gamers can't count?
It's not like we're a bunch of llamas or something. "
"The Resident Evil series is the king horror games. If you want to get into horror games, this is where it starts and ends. It's been around for years and each installment is great. If I was going to pick any other game than this one, it'd be another Resident Evil game. This one is great because it has a great environment and call even be played with two people. There is so much to like about this game and I can't say enough good things about it."
"When thinking of horror-themed games, Resident Evil is the one which usually comes up for most game players... and for good reason! Resident Evil is the classic game within the genre. I recently got Resident Evil 5 from Steam and I can't stop playing it! If your a fan of the Resident Evil name, horror games, or are just looking for something new and really fun and engaging to play, then I'd certainly say to check out Resident Evil 5 on Steam!"
"This is a classic, much like the movie Out of Africa, except, without all the silly love crap. You can really live in Chris' shoes. At least, I find hours and hours have gone by when I play, and I can't remember where I've been, or why my hands are bleeding. I always tell myself it's because I'm just so forceful with the controller. RE5 is my sole reason for living. In fact, typing this review has taken me away from it far too long."
"Oh man. If you aren't one of many people who have played the Resident Evil series you are seriously missing out. It's almost like pre - The Walking Dead. Psychopaths, people, and animals transformed by a virus into hideous killing machines? Check. Witty character lines? Check. Blowing up things and punching their lights out? Check. It may not be the best horror game on Steam, but it sure earns its place among the top of the top. "
"A fantastic game and even better when played cooperatively with a friend. Continues to follow the Resident Evil story line and has great action game play that was first introduced with Resident Evil 4. You won't be disappointing in playing this if you really like the Resident Evil games. I would have to say though, even though this game could be considered spooky, I would not call it a horror game. Still a great game either way."
"This game spooked me so much. I made the mistake of playing it in the dark, and boy do I regret that. Well, maybe only a little. It certainly has a couple of points that freaked me out and messed with my mind a little, which might not have happened if I had played it with the lights on! I did have to mute the sound once or twice though, because everything is fortunately a little less scary if you don't have to listen to it!"
"Resident Evil 5 had big shoes to fill after RE4, and while it doesn't quite match up, I still thought it was a pretty good game. It's a lot more on the action side than survivor horror side, so be aware of that. The game is definitely a lot better in co-op mode- the partner AI in this game isn't always great and that can be frustrating, but if you're a Resident Evil fan or a horror fan, it's definitely worth the purchase. "
"Even if you're not a horror fan, it's hard to not to get excited by the spooky, scary games that are available this time of year. I bought a few to celebrate the Halloween season, including Resident Evil 5. I don't own RE installments 2-4, and I bought this one because I really liked the setting (South Africa) and the immersive, creepy visuals. It's scary and engrossing, as a good Hallow's Eve entertainment should be. "
"If you are a Resident Evil fan, then you are aware of the series' shortcomings. Limited point of view, non-intuitive combat, cut scenes, etc. These drive some folks away, but what you come for is the story and the eerie atmosphere. RE5 is a good installment with big sets and even bigger bosses. The story lines are getting a bit bloated which is working against the claustrophobia that makes the game what it is. "
"The Resident Evil Series is a classic that has had a number of classic iterations for many horror game fans but Resident Evil 5 is not one of them. This game has a number of flaws in the story and some glaring continuity issues which I feel make it worse than most of it's predecessors. Definitely worth a play for fans of horror games and particularly Resident Evil but there are several better alternatives out there."
"Just to get this out of the way; is Resident Evil 5 better than RE4? The short answer is no. But Resident Evil 5 is still a good game in its own right. I give the graphics a ten, the background music is frightening, the game play itself is fun and you will want to play again, which is always a plus. The story is a little long and you can't play solo, but other than that, a solid entry in the Resident Evil arsenal."
"Resident Evil has always made some of the best games, but it is by far the best Horror series that has been created. Resident Evil 5 is no different. They really increased the jump scares and it pushes you to another level when you are playing it. There is a nice set of puzzles to solve, but the horror of the game is really what stands out. There are tons of gross looking zombies to get you in a horror mood."
"I use the steam platform for gaming and one game that keeps me coming back is The Resident Evil series. Without a doubt, The Resident Evil series is the ultimate survival- horror game. The graphics are so insane and realistic you actually think you are part of the special forces unit on patrol. This version is completely playable for both newcomers and of course the hardcore Resident Evil fans will love it."
"This game brings me back! I used to play this all the time in HS, I decided to revisit it again after all these years and was surprised at how well it holds up. I really dig the story line and the game play still is quite smooth. The graphics are definitely dated in some scenes thought and there is not as much "Horror" elements as there are in other games in this series but over all it is still quite good. "
"I can't say that I am a huge fan of this game. There are definitely good aspects of it, like the graphics and the atmosphere the game provides, but I'm not a huge fan of the inventory system. Also, the AI is way too easy to fool. I found that I could just run and bypass large portions of the level. For a survival horror game, I didn't find myself pinned against the enemy that much. I would pass on this one."
"If you are a fan of Resident Evil, you are in for another wonderful installment. BSAA agent Chris Redfield is back as he travels to Africa to take on a new case of Bio-hazard chemical warfare. There is a problem when a biological agent is turning the locals into crazed killing creatures. Joined by local BSAA agent, Sheva Alomar, the two race to figure out how to combat the problem and save the residents. "
"This game was once the best there was in the genre but that is no longer true. There is much more quality content that will give you a scare. The game is dated and the story is bland in comparison to today's game. You will be dissapointed if you are expecting anything new or innovative from this game. It is best to stick to newer games where the graphics can truly make you feel like you are in the world. "
"Resident Evil 5 is my favorite game in its series. I love to play this game, especially online with a partner. It is quite challenging and the story-line rarely has a dull moment. The uniqueness of this game compared to others I will say is the players skill. This game was more challenging to me than the others but it is also the most fun to play! This is a must have title if you are into horror games."
"This game scared the heck out of me. It's October, and I was looking for a spooky game. I got more than I bargained for with this one. It had this creepy setting in Africa, and foreign stuff like that really gets to me. Maybe its the feeling of the unfamiliar that scares me so much, but I really got deeply involved in this game. Its an awesome choice for Halloween time, and I was happy with the value."
"Steam is a great place for horror games and Resident Evil 5 comes out as one of the best available. Do you like action mixed with adventure? Throw in some thrills and chills and there you have it. Quite possible the best game in the series, this survival horror game has enough gore and guts to scare even the toughest critics. If you want one of the best Horror game on Steam pick up Resident Evil 5."
"I love horror games. The Resident Evil series is one of my absolute favorites. I checked out Resident Evil 5 on Steam and I really love it. It's one of my favorite horror games on Steam right now. The graphics are amazing and the story is really involving and fun. I love the gameplay; it's very immersive and thrilling. If you love horror games, check this game out on Steam. I really recommend it."
"Resident Evil 5 on steam is a classic horror game. This game switched to 1st person and still retains the original shock value of the zombies vs humans. While this game is shorter than the previous versions and does not have as many sites to visit, it still hits a homerun with me. The game is intense and still retains puzzles to solve while you attempt to survive. A must have game for Steam. "
"Resident Evil 5 is hardly a horror game, despite the IPs history and what it tells you. Thiis was Capcom's first step into making the series into a bland action game and that's what takes front and center; the action, not the horror. As a solo game, I don't find it all too great either. However! If you can co-op with a friend? I think it's' a blast, same for its multiplayer challenge mode."
"You could call me Chris Redfield because I have been right there with him and with the rest of the S.T.A.R.S. team thru all of their battles against the biological viruses & weapons that The Umbrella Corporation and others have created that have harmed our world. This is another extension of those games taking you to South Africa where you fight against even more horrible creations. "
"If you enjoy horror based video games, you are no stranger to Resident Evil. This installment is everything you have come to expect from the brand. Great, intense graphics, great game play, and plenty of those scares to keep you on your toes. This game will have you playing through it more than once to find all those things you missed the first time. A must play for horror fans."
"I enjoy Resident Evil 5 but be aware that this is just a remastered edition so if you tried it before and didn't like it, Resident Evil 5 not going to change your mind. I think it is one of the better looking games but you won't find any additional chapters or quick time events, nor is there an epilogue that highlights what happens to the characters at the end of the game. "
"I love playing Horror games especially in October right before Halloween. That is when I usually start searching for the best Horror games on Steam. I have played quite a few horror games and I still enjoy the Resident Evil series the most. Resident Evil 5 is my absolute favorite horror game right now. I have been playing it nonstop for the past week. I highly recommend it."
"I personally think Resident Evil 5 is disappointing, particularly as a horror game. Capcom tried to make a real action game, like Gears of War, only they kept the tank controls that actually work in a horror game. It's a Frankenstein's monster of a game, only one that, ironically, doesn't satisfy a horror fan's itch. Try earlier games in the series or Dead Space instead."
"Highly realistic and scary. Your skin will crawl as you watch people transforming into mindless zombies with red -glowing eyes and appetite for death! I could almost envision myself being in that awful environment and feeling their monster breath on the back of my neck. This game is definitely the one that will give you a major adrenaline rush and keep you awake at night!"
"If you are looking for horror games on steam, you can't go wrong with the Resident Evil series. Some say that Resident Evil 4 is better than Resident Evil 5, but for me it is hard to decide. I will say that I think Resident Evil 5 is more fun if you play with a friend. RE 5 has more of a storyline than RE 4, but isn't quite as scary, if you are looking for a horror game."
"Resident Evil 5 is not really a horror game. Don't get me wrong, it has some scary parts, but it's much more an action game than horror. That said, it's a very solid action game, and if you have someone else to play it with it jumps up to great. I'd strongly suggest finding someone else to play with you. If you want a kinda creepy action game, this is a good choice."
"The Resident Evil series is such a classic horror shooter franchise and it's going strong still. Resident Evil 5 doesn't stray far from the original and it shouldn't because you go with what got you there. Kill zombies, kill more zombies, explore, kill zombies then repeat. It looks great on Steam and plays great as well. It's well deserving of the Resident Evil title."
"Steam's Resident Evil 5 is a long-time video game classic, and a quite popular horror themed game. It has achieved quite good user and professional reviews and ratings over time. Steam Resident Evil 5 represents the most recent game version, and some new features and special effects have been added. This is a very solid survival horror video game series selection. "
"Usually when I think of horror games, I think of something scary, something that may jump out at you or being scared while playing, and Resident Evil 5 is not that. I don't put that in the category of Horror. Sure, the things you need to kill are pretty freaky, but they wouldn't scare me. I don't think this is the best way to classify this game, but that's just me."
"I have always loved the Resident Evil series, so I decided to buy Resident Evil 5 when I saw it available on Steam. While the game is action pack, I felt the storyline for Resident Evil 5 was not as good as previous versions. It was lacking the psychological element that was present in the previous versions which in my opinion made the earlier titles so good."
"Resident Evil 5 shows me that each new installment of the Resident Evil series improves on itself. Right when I thought the last game was exciting, this newer version appears to continue the series. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but this is not a small tweaking of a previous installment, but a whole new adventure, with some things that are familiar."
"My favorite Resident Evil in the entire series. Graphics are great, story is great, really everything is great. I'm probably in the minority saying it's my favorite, but I had a blast with it. I highly recommend if you have played others in the series. Even if you haven't it's still a solid choice for a game. At it's current price it's worth every penny. "
"While I have a strong emotional investment in the Resident Evil game series, if you're looking for the best horror games on Steam, R:E5 is a bit dated. It was released in 2009, and doesn't really hold up to some of the latest offerings. If you're looking for the BEST horror games on Steam, you might want to skip this one and check out some newer offerings."
"The new Resident Evil looks amazing. It has a nice story and background to it. These kind of games are for fun and to do something in my leisure time. This kind of game always has made video games really relevant.. More so, the seventh resident evil ought to be more amazing than the previous one because of all the new plots and features in the game. "
"I always wanted to find a game that would scare me like a true horror movie and this is it. I literally can only play this game when the sun is out, and only at night with friends over. I may sound wimpy to some people but it is that scary and that good. I love the graphics and the suspense is awesome. I highly recommend playing it with headsets on. "
"I don't know why you would pick Resident Evil 5 over 1 or 2, but it does have its merits. It's the seventh installment (which is weird because the numbering says 5, but just work with it) so it does have very nice graphics and they have a firmer sense of lore to them, but personally I think the story isn't as gripping as some of the earlier versions."
"My favorite horror game on Steam right now is Resident Evil 5. I love the series and this game is awesome. It's thrilling and has a super immersive story. Although not as good as some of the other games, it's definitely a great horror game that stands on its own. If you have steam and want to play a great horror game, try out Resident Evil 5."
"If you want scary / horror in video game form.....look no further than Resident Evil 5. You'll play as the old faithful Chris Redfield, this time you delve into South Africa and it's by far the best of all the Resident Evils in my opinion. If was a voting man for best horror game on Steam....no doubt i'd place my vote for Resident Evil 5 !"
"This game will scare the pants off of you. I'm a bit of a scaredy cat but I can usually tough it out through horror movies and games but this one just really had me on the edge of my seat. There's a reason Resident Evil has been a long-lived and respected game franchise - they know how to do horror and do it right. Prepare to be scared!"
"This game was the worst in the series. I have played resident evil since the beginning. They clearly rushed to get this out. There were issues right from the start, just trying to install it. It kept stopping half way through. The graphics were good, but the game play was terrible. The camera was jerky, and it made me have motion sickness"
"I love playing horror games on PC, especially around this time of year. When it comes to the spooky, scary, creepy stuff, I can't get enough. You'll have fun reprising the role of Chris Redfield in this scary installment of the beloved Resident Evil series. The only downside for me is that the game isn't supported for use on a Mac. "
"Intensely narrative with a more solid storyline that earlier iterations of the game RE5 dials back the horror and gore a bit in favor of graphic awesomeness and a more solid storyline. While it doesn't have the excitement of some of the earlier games in terms of pure horror, the more well thought out plot line is a nice change. "
"Not much can be said about the Resident Evil series that hasn't already been said. This edition captures the essence of the franchise and brings about the horror that it has done so well for years. Starting in a new location to the franchise, you will face horrors both old and new in this edition. Be sure to pick this one up!"
"When my parents went out of town for a couple weeks, my brother and I played through this entire game. The co-op gameplay was incredible and should be played for just that alone. Thought I honestly found the horror elements lacking. It just wasn't very scary at all compared to the old Resident Evil games. Amazing gameplay though."
"I think that this game looks phenomenal. It combines a fantastic story with captivating dialogue and the graphics are absolutely horrifying in all the places you want and need a horror game to be. Games have come a long way since the inception of the first R.E., but this game proves that the classics remain on top for a reason. "
"I still haven't played a horror game series that draws me in like the Resident Evil series. Resident Evil 5 still manages to enthrall me like its predecessors. The assortment of weapons you can use in the game is very cool. The monsters are all well-designed and creative. Definitely worth a buy if you are a horror fan."
"The Resident evil series is always a good option for a horror game, but I don’t know if I necessarily say the fifth one is the best option – especially since it’s really the seventh installment they just call it the fifth. It’s a fun game but I think you can find better options out there. Maybe try the first or second one?"
"The Resident Evil series including 5 are the scariest and most fun horror game of all time. I often play with my daughter and I love watching her jump when they use there amazing ability to surprise you. I have played other games that are also scary but the story line along with the monster make this one of the best. "
"The site is great overall for games. You can find most genres on the site. This particular game is a lot of fun to play. The graphics are quite good and the action is non stop. The imagery in the game is almost life like. The game offers a lot of action and adventure, great dialogue and it's one I can play for hours. "
"The horror genre is my favorite video game genre, but recently there are so many horror games on the market, I don't know which to choose. I came here looking for a more narrowed down option and was told to try Resident Evil 5. I bought it immediately and was scared out of my mind. That's a good thing by the way. 5/5."
"It seems almost exactly the same as the fourth game with better graphics. It is a lot of fun, but the story could be more original. It has a more action than some of the other games too, which could be a good thing depending on your style. There is still quite a bit of horror, so don't despair if that is your thing. "
"While the beloved franchise was one of the pioneers of survivor horror I think that there are much better horror games on steam. Resident Evil 5 does not even seem to have as much of the horror aspect as others from the series, seeming more like a shooter or survival type scenario than focusing on the scare factor."
"This is a solid resident evil and horror game. While it may not be the best resident evil game out there, when it comes to horror games it still beats out many other games by miles. This one definitely fits in well with the series and deserves a play through if you have played any of the other resident evil games."
"The Resident Evil series always has good story lines, with compelling visuals and scary scenes that keep you on the edge of your seat. It's no surprise that they keep making sequels to the Resident Evil series on top of the movie franchise. Horror wouldn't be the same genre if Resident Evil wasn't some part of it."
"Yet another re-release of a Resident Evil game. But Resident Evil 5 was then -and still is- a decent, well designed game that lacks the “horror” element but has lots of soul and substance.RE5 is a great third person action game, but this version doesn't add anything relevant if you already have the Gold Edition.
"This is my favorite resident evil and I've played almost all of them. I like the gameplay it feels more fluid than most games in this genre. The storyline is a little slow at first but don't worry it gets way more exciting. The voice acting and atmosphere are much darker in RE5 than the other ones in the series."
"If you're looking for a true horror I'd look elsewhere. While the Resident Evil series was built on being horror games Resident Evil 5 turned it into an action shooter with little to no horror elements left. The game in itself is fun, but didn't even begin to make me feel scared or tense during my play through. "
"Probably would be better if you played with a friend, but other than that the game is just lacking. It looks like another game with a face lift (that's all I'll say). It's a little boring and not something I see myself playing a game. Now, if you never played Resident Evil games, then this might be fun for you."
"One of the best games in the Resident Evil franchise, and one of the scariest as well. As it is by now a few years old, it doesn't need the best or most expensive computer to be able to run, and it's still great scary fun to play. Really a classic by this point and someone every horror videogame fan should buy."
"Resident Evil 5 is another great game in the series. It's every bit as fun to play as all the ones before it. It's a first person shooter in the horror genre where you blast zombies with a variety of cool weapons. It's plays very well on Steam and I thinks it's one of the better horror games on the platform."
"I was looking to find the best horror games on Steam. I found Resident Evil 5 which initially made me excited as I'm a fan of the Resident Evil series. In my opinion Resident Evil 5 is the start of a decline of this series. The controls felt clunky and while there was a lot of action there was little horror."
"Really enjoy this one! Some people have said some negative things about how this game is a bit more outlandish than the previous games, but honestly I enjoyed the campy nature a lot. The combat was classic Resident Evil, and I really liked finally getting to play as Chris Redfield again. Love this game."
"Resident Evil 5 is a very highly rated game by Capcom. Released in 2009, it's been a hit since, and is a must-have for any fans of the horror genre. It's a lot of fun and provides plenty of spooks. It's one of my favorite games in the series and needs to be enjoy every Halloween for the ultimate spook!"
"Resident Evil 5 is a fantastic horror video game. If you are a fan of the genre or the series, I highly recommend this game. I have logged over a hundred hours on it so far, and enjoyed every minute. The graphics are nice, and the controls are smooth and intuitive. One of the best games of its genre."
"One of my favorite horror game franchises is Resident Evil. So when the fifth installment came out, I bought it immediately. Little did I know that it would turn out to be my favorite one. It has all of the classic stuff, but with a new storyline and different scenes. It's totally worth the purchase!"
"Resident Evil 5 is a unique offering as far as horror games. Part of me feels like it wasn't the best game I've ever played, but the other part of me feels like it's so unique that I'll always consider picking it up to play every once in awhile. Definitely a solid addition to any gaming collection."
"This is a great game, but not so much on PC. It's been full of bugs since its release, and they've yet to be fixed. I really like the co-op in the game, but the PC version doesn't offer local co-op! I'd recommend staying far away from Resident Evil 5 on the PC and giving it a shot on PlayStation."
"Resident Evil 5 is kind of a mediocre entry in the series. Following up the masterpiece that was Resident Evil 4 was never going to be easy, and Capcom missed the mark with this sequel. It's not a bad game, necessarily, but it's just not nearly as good as most of the other entries in the series."
"I was so excited to know that Resident Evil 5 was coming out. It continues the adventures of Chris Redfield with new and more dangerous enemies lurking to do him harm. No knowledge of previous Resident Evil installment games are needed. This is a great way to get immersed into a great adventure."
"I am not a gamer, and I have never played this game series. However, this is one game which might interest me enough to try it and perhaps even get involved within it's context. I can see why this series has continued with strong acceptance among gamers, which I am sure will not let them down.."
"Growing up in the late 90's Resident Evil was my go to game. I loved every thing about this game and now that part 6 is out, I played the sweat out of it when it came out. While it does not live up to the past released, it does give you that "Resident Evil" feel at times, although not too much."
"While RE5 isn't as good as some of its predecessors, it still is a great horror game in its own right. While I didn't find it to be as scary as the older ones, it seems to have a bit tighter gameplay. I also thought that it was easier to control than the older ones, which is a good thing. "
"Resident Evil 5 is a good game. I've played a lot of it and definitely enjoy it, but it isn't particularly a horror game, as the gameplay is more action oriented despite the horror tag. If you want a real horror game, you can play this, but I suggest looking for an alternative, better option."
"With so many games on Stream it is easy to get lost in them. I was forever searching and searching until I stumbled upon this. I have played all of the Resident Evil games and non of them effected me in the way that this one did. It has more intense story lines and character then ever before."
"Resident Evil 5 is an excellent game for people who like the horror games genre. I played this game for several hours as it kept me gripped throughout. Chris Redfield's new mission to South Africa is intriguing as he combats new horrors just as he tries to escape old memories from his past. "
"Chris is back again, and there's more zombies to take out. Being made for newer systems, the graphics really get you into it and it can get pretty graphic with the different ways Chris perishes to some of these enemies, which might be cool or gruesome to you depending how you are with that."
"The South African setting is interesting, and the game certainly keeps you on your toes as any good thriller does. If you’ve played the other RE games and enjoyed them, you’ll probably enjoy this one too; but if this is your first foray into RE, start with one of the earlier, better ones. "
"I simply love the Resident Evil franchise and every iteration they have created and released. Resident Evil 5 is no exception and is one of the best horror games I have ever played to date. It engages you in an environment that will keep you on the edge of your seat the whole way through!"
"When I went searching for the best Horror genre game on Steam, I didn't have to look hard. I quickly found that Resident Evil 5 was the best game for spooky creatures, bloody gore, and non-stop surprise encounters at every turn. I highly recommend this game to get in the Halloween spirit!"
"Resident Evil 5 is a pale comparison to the previous releases. While the graphics are neat, the whole game suffers from a lack of originality and the multi-player mode is so annoying and glitchy. It's also virtually impossible to get anywhere in single player mode. Total disappointment. "
"If horror means Resident Evil to you, then you are in the right place. Everything I ever wanted to know about the Resident Evil games - it is all here. If, however, like me, your idea of horror comes in any other form, keep looking. Good start, as long as you are a fan of Resident Evil."
"The link is to the game Resident Evil™ 5/ Biohazard 5® that was released on Sep 15, 2009 and it is currently available via the Steam store on SteamPowered. While the game is considered to be rather old the reviews of the game are very positive overall and very positive in recent reviews."
"Resident Evil 5 is a terrific new installment in the series. You'll find yourself traveling to South Africa and fighting off more horrible creatures than you ever could have imagined. You'll want to keep the lights on playing this one. Don't take my word for it, play this one today!"
"Resident Evil 5 is a game in the horror series of Resident Evil that easily stands out. It's scary and engaging with many different cities and environments to play it. The controls are good and the camera is excellent. If you want to play a good horror game, this one is recommended."
"By any objective measure, Resident Evil 5 is a very good horror game. But the series has set the bar so high with its previous installments that I can't help but feel let down by very good. This one needed to be amazing. I still played it for 100 hours or something like that though."
"If you're a fan of the Resident Evil games, you'll love resident Evil 5/Biohazard 5. Although it was released in 2009, the graphics are still amazing and situation still relevant. If you buy this version on Steam, it will be upgraded to Resident Evil 5 gold Edition. Great deal!"
"Resident Evil 5 is my personal favorite out of the Resident Evil franchise. The graphics and game play mechanics still hold up to any triple A title even today. Playing this game again brought back some great memories and it's still just as scary as it was the first time I beat it."
"I love horror games. I recently began playing Resident Evil 5. I love all Resident Evils but this one is especially entertaining to me. The story and graphics are real good. I can play this game a few times over and not get bored. I recommend this to any Resident Evil fans like me."
"The top list for horror games on Steam includes the Resident Evil 5 game which is a classic. Whenever I play this game I need to make sure that all the lights are on and that I have been to the bathroom because one time, I was so scarred that I pee pee'd a little bit in my pants!"
"Resident Evil 5 is the best Resident Evil yet! I've played all the other ones, including the recent remake of the original, and this one just blows it out of the water. This killed so much time when I was home sick recently, and made me want to go find other horror games like it."
"I LOVE the Resident Evil series and this game keeps adding to that enjoyment. Resident Evil 5 is the scariest experience you will find and it's a very challenging game. I purchased on release and still play it to this day so it has great replay value. Would definitely RECOMMEND!"
"If you are looking for one of the best horror games that would be available on Steam, then Resident Evil 5 is for you! This game is well balanced with some scares, and one of the best stories especially in a horror story outline. This game will keep you peeled for hours to come!"
"Awesome game! Great story for anyone who's played the previous 4. Umbrella is at it again, this time in Africa. Chris from the original series is the main character and it's a great ride through and through. Cool survival mode as well. Nope. Nothing wrong with this game at all."
"I am a huge fan of the horror genre, in all things (books, movies, games, etc). This solution is a wonderful option. It has great game play that is absolutely horrifying. The graphics are wonderful and the characters are intriguing. Definitely a game to make you pee your pants!"
"This has to be the worst RE of the whole franchise. You're Chris, a lightweight if I ever saw one, and you're basically just lame. I mean, South Africa's boring enough, that even with zombies, there's just not much to tour. Except Sheva. I absolutely love walking behind her. "
"Resident Evil 5 is another installment in the Resident Evil series of horror games. I personally love this game and highly recommend it for anyone looking for the best of the best horror games on Steam. There's a reason why the Resident Evil series of games is so highly rated."
"Resident evil 5 is a good game to play and I like that I can import what I saved from playing the game already over to this game. The only thing I don't like is it only supports windows 7 which I think is crazy because people with windows 8-10 or before 7 can't play the game."
"This is a great result because this is a very popular horror video game that has been around for a very long time and could be just what the user is looking for. The related products also include other related horror games that the user may want to look at and enjoy as well. "
"There are lots of Horror games on Steam. I like to stick with the classics. Resident Evil 5 is one of my favorites. I like it so much because the story and surprise are like no other game. I loved the story so much I played it a few times over. I really think it is the best."
"One of the best horror games I have played is Residential Evil5 which really kept me engaged and kept my adrenaline up.I really enjoyed playing it with my friends that we did not realize time passing.I f you really have not tried it yet,then you should because its awesome."
"As long as you aren't really hoping to be terrified by your 'horror' games, this is a great option in the genre. The gameplay is very good, and it's a lot of fun to play. Just don't expect it to truly be all that scary. I think of it more as the mood of the game, I suppose."
"Same game - different day. BUT, that's not to say that this game is anything short of riveting. Missions are exciting, graphics are bar-none, and the violence is, for better or worse, what keeps most going. With that said, I'd warn to keep this game for mature audiences."
"Horror games are my favorite! The Resident Evil games always give me exactly what I'm looking for, that on the edge of your seat, scared of what's around the next corner feeling. Resident Evil 5 was no different. It's one of the best horror games you can find on Steam."
"I am a huge fan of horror games, and I've played the Resident Evil series for years. Resident Evil 5 is another game that lives up to the hype. As a horror game, it is a little less scary than some of its predecessors, but it makes up for that with how fun it is to play. "
"I thought Resident Evil 5 was a bit of a let down. I absolutely loved RE 4, so my expectations were a bit high for the subsequent release. I thought they made some game play improvements, but sacrificed the story in RE 5. Still worth playing, but lower your expectations."
"Resident Evil 5 is a really good game but I do not think it is the best horror movie. Even in the resident evil game series, the first game (maybe with the HD remaster version) is better than the 5th one. The graphics in 5 is nice but I do not like the story in the game."
"Resident Evil 5 is one of my favorite games to play on Steam. This version is equal parts horror and action, so I find it even more engaging than the others because I like the action aspect of games way more. If you're in that same boat, then this is a great game to try."
"Resident evil has always been a personal favorite of mine. It was great then and it maintains its greatness to this day. The fifth installment is just as terrifying as the first. You'll never run out of jump scares and overall pure creepiness with the Resident Evil saga."
"Resident Evil is easily one of the most scary game franchises ever. It is filled with scary actions at every corner, and will definitely make you have trouble sleeping at night. The numerous games for this title confirms the belief that it is a very successful franchise."
"While the Resident Evil games are great I'm not sure I'd count the 5th one as a horror game. There are some horror elements, but it seems more geared towards action/adventure than horror. It's still a good game, but not one of the best horror games available on Steam. "
"Graphics are nice, but not as good as more recently developed games. It's a nice addition to the RE family, and has plenty of fans. I like it, but I'm not crazy about it. I play it if I get invited to by friends, other than that, I'm playing something more current."
"Again as said earlier, Resident Evil stands out as a popular franchise that has been known seen and enjoyed by many for more than a decade. This game stands as one of the best horror games as they know the perfect formula to scare and frighten the gamers who play it."
"Resident Evil 5 is amazing. The graphics are great and the storyline is addictive. Best of all, it can be played on a Windows platform. I have a computer that is strictly for gaming since I have yet to buy a console. I can play by myself or I can play with others. "
"Resident Evil 5 is one of the best games I've played. It's original and has a lot of new characters and weapons to use. It also let me choose from a wide variety of environments so it keeps me from getting bored by the same strategy and evil residents pursuing me."
"I personally didn't like this game too much especially when compared with the prior installment so I would not be looking into getting this again. I didn't like it as much because there wasn't as much focus on the story as there usually is in resident evil games."
"As a long time of fan of the franchise Resident Evil 5 offers one of the most immersive gaming experience ever. The story, art, and script are all beautifully done. The horror comes from the expansive and detailed world building rather than rely on jump scares."
"Although I'm perpetually disappointed to see the horror genre landscape dominated by zombies, I have to admit that Resident Evil does it right. Resident Evil 5 is no exception. The game play is awesome, the plot is serviceable, and the graphics are incredible."
"I do not understand why people think resident evil 5 is a horror game. It is but it barely makes it into that category. I have personally played this and I have not been startled by it. If you want your pants scared off, look elsewhere. Outlast is an example."
"Resident Evil 5 is a classic in the horror game arena and an almost must play for any horror fans. It features 3D gameplay in an immersive world. While the game requires a pretty fast computer, you should certainly not skip this installment of Resident Evil."
"What's better than Resident Evil 4? Resident Evil 5 of course. Updated game-play and game engine, Resident Evil 5 is also the first to have 2 man coop teams. There are some added features and more plot lines but it's still the one and only Resident Evil."
"I can't believe they put a resident evil on Steam, what a great idea. It is an amazing game that will forever be remembered and now it is on a platform that will expose more people to it. It will surely continue to inspire new gamers through this addition. "
"Picking the best horror game is like picking the best shooter, not an easy thing to do. That being said Resident Evil 5 takes it to a new level. Really popular on Steam, Resident Evil 5 has great reviews and comes from a long line of well made horror games."
"Resident Evil 5 is my favorite game in the franchise. The style of play is exciting, the pace and themes are haunting and chilling at the same time. Some times in the game I feel very thrilled, anxious, and excited while progressing. It is intense and fun"
"I'd definitely put Resident Evil 5 in the top ten horror games on Steam. It's one of the most popular games for a reason, it's a blast to play and the graphics are superb. If you want to try out the horror genre, you can't go wrong with Resident Evil 5. "
"I think this works. It takes you to an easy to navigate page. It also gives you a video of the game as well as some info about it. I also like that the buying options are easy to find and it gives you a couple different options for purchasing the game. "
"Resident Evil 5 is an awesome continuation to the RE game series. I snagged it up as soon as it hit Steam and I'll be honest, I didn't sleep that night. Not because I was playing all night either! It's my absolute favorite horror game at the moment."
"If you are looking for a good action game, this will work. Especially if you plan on playing with a friend. If you are looking for a game that will scare you, look somewhere else. The emphasis here is on killing zombies over providing tense situations."
"Resident Evil 5 is maybe one of the most beautiful chapter of the whole series. It took me a little time to get used to the new system of aiming, but, when I got used to it, I really enjoyed the game (that made me jump on my chair many, many times.. :)"
"Resident Evil 5 is one of the better video horror game available on Steam. I really like this game even though I don't think it is as good as Resident Evil 4. However, I love the classical horror genre and this game is fun to play and full of action."
"There is a little less horror in this game than I expected. I don't know, that might be a turn off for some people. For me though, it was the right mix of action and horror. This is a very interesting game. The story lines and plot were well crafted."
