Too much game play in the dark or night. Unlike previous versions: balance!

I have purchased the game yet but all video reviews I could tell the gameplay is mostly done in the dark and visually it gets very bland. HD is fully utilzied when there is light and colors and this installment is just not very appealing. I'm just saying

Its need to appeal to all those kiddos from RE1&2&3. I wouldnt be "scary" if those things could be seen in daylight, right?

I think if you actually played 1, 2 and 3 you'd know RE6 is set in more dark areas than those games. At least in the original games you didn't need to max out your brightness just to see anything. RE6 is dark because it hides the crappy textures.

forgotten to mention that those games are in 2nd person view on a static background. Agree, the dev made it harder to see, which is a good thing, that way it could give horror fan cheap scare.

really? I'm pretty sure in both 1 and 2 there wasn't a single time the game took place in daylight.

There's more scares in the first hour of Leon's campaign than in RE5 (whole game practically in the daylight) in it's entirety.

I think what he meant was, RE1 and RE2 are very bright. The only real dark areas in RE2 were the Chief's back room and some parts of the sewers. Compare that to RE 1.5, which was a very dark looking RPD building, or RE6, which has a lot of dark areas.

Yup nailed it. I never struggled to see anything in those earlier games compared to RE6.
