Check out the hotness! Resident Evil 5 is easily looking like one of 2009's best incoming games, and these new gorgeous screenshots do little to dissuade such theories.
They mainly show off Chris and Sheva working together in their bid to promote racial harmony -- kind of like Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder, except with slightly more killing involved. The most striking images, for me, are the daylight ones. They look incredibly rich and especially beautiful.
One of Resident Evil 4's best elements was that some of its scariest moments occurred during the daylight in outdoor environments. I'm glad Resident Evil 5 is continuing that, proving that scary games don't all have to take place in dark corridors. Not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just I like my horror to come in more than one flavor.
Either way you slice it, this is looking great. Do you agree, or are you some sort of mutant?
