VideoGamer.com played through the first three levels of Capcom's latest with one of the UK's top experts on racism to get the final word - is Resident Evil 5 racist?
Rather than simply forming an opinion on the Resident Evil 5 racism controversy from watching trailers, Glenn Bowman, Senior Lecturer at the Department of Anthropology at the University of Kent, actually got to play through the first three levels of the game with the folks at VideoGamer.com, thus enabling him to deliver a much more measured and informed opinion than he would have been able to otherwise. His opinion of the alleged racism? "I don't think it's racist. I think people are looking too quickly to be able to jam that label onto it."
