Resident Evil 5 is one of the most hotly anticipated games of 2009, after the previous game was widely praised as the best of the series. While many may wonder whether the zombie killing crown now belongs to Left for Dead, it would be foolish to discount Capcom and their venerable much loved genre defining series.
This benchmarking tool is basically a non-playable demo, that allows you to check if your system will be able to run the game or not. After the demo runs, you are given a verdict, after which you can alter some parameters such as resolution, graphics levels, motion blur and so on if your system failed the test!
While the console games were released earlier this year, the PC version features more content and support for the NVIDIA GeForce 3D Vision Tech. If you're computer's powerful enough, and your screen good enough, you'll be able to experience zombies in 3D if you buy the special glasses.
At over half a gigabyte, this tool is huge for a non playable demo, but it'll save you time later, or inform you that you need save up to upgrade if you want to have a go at 3D gaming.
