Facing non-stop attacks for virtually the entire length of the chapter, players will not be able to breathe easy until the credits roll. Providing truly intense action, Desperate Escape is absolutely worth the price of admission alone, while the additional 100 achievement points and two characters for Mercenaries Reunion are merely the icing on the cake.

Despite Desperate Escape being little more than a rehash of any number of Resident Evil 5's levels, this is still a hugely enjoyable example of why DLC has become a vital part of the gaming landscape. For the meagre sum of 400 Microsoft Points, or £3.99 over PSN, you're getting another quality episode, and anyone who enjoyed the game's campaign won't be disappointed with more of the same.

While Desperate Escape is shorter than Ramon Salazar and doesn’t exactly revolutionize Resident Evil 5, it is a good DLC package for a scant 400 Microsoft Points and provides ample excuse to play more Mercenaries. Unlike the last episode, there are no half-assed puzzles to deal with or keys to be fetched and out of the two Desperate Escape provides the most entertainment value for your virtual dollars. It’s a fun little send-off for Resident Evil 5—nothing more, nothing less.

Desperate Escape offers a nice piece of DLC for fans of the game who thought that Lost in Nightmares was a bit too slow for their liking. However if you’re a traditionalist that doesn’t like the way that the series is headed, then you probably aren’t going to be too pleased with Desperate Escape.

While there is nothing particularly wrong with this add-on, being released just two weeks after the excellent Lost in Nightmares makes this title seem a bit weak in comparison. If you found Lost in Nightmares to be too slow paced, then perhaps Desperate Escape will be more to your liking.
