The US OPM’s given Resident Evil 5 top marks in its review, as you can see in these scans.

The text’s a little small on those images, but not so much that you can’t see the glow. There are negatives, however.

“If there’s any quibbling to be done about Resident Evil 5, it’s that much of the game content and scenarios are derivative. You’ll recognise ‘influence’ from Matrix, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Metal Gear, Tomb Raider and probably every monster-related vehicle ever made, but it’s the way that RE5 reinterprets, reconstitutes, and just plain reuses them that distinguishes the game.”

It’s out on March 13.
