This is full of spoilers at the beginning..
I'm looking forward to it and I don't want to spoil the story.
You might want to skip the first part guys.
"...on 3DS, it did really well. So much that we wanted to gouge out more of Resident Evil fans' money on overpriced port jobs."
Every RE article is the same thing. People bitching about the new RE, people asking for the old tank gameplay style back, people making up stuff to justify why they think 4 through 6 suck and so on. Get over it people, RE1-3 has a dated gameplay style and it is not coming back. I loved RE4 for what it did to the series and seriously, anyone who has complaints about RE5 must not have played it in co-op. However, I have to agree with those against RE6 (in parts). I only played the demo and as someone said, the only thing that resembled RE was Leon campain (or, level, whatever). Chris' was pure Gears of War and that other guy's couldn't be more L4D. People also used to complain that the movement was stiff and not being able to move while aiming was stupid. Did you move while aiming in RE1-3? No! Did not moving work in RE4-5? Yes. Did moving work in 6? Not at all.
Now that I got it all out of my system, lemme say that I'm really excited for Revelations. I liked the idea since I heard about it on the 3DS but since I don't have any plans for buying the portable anytime soon, it's good to see it coming to the home consoles.
People stop complaining about RE 4, 5 & 6, they are not as scary as RE 1, 2 & 3 but they do have a better gameplay than the old ones and an interesting continuing story.
And there are only 2 things I don't like about RE 6,
1: the fact that we can't buy and upgrade weapons and equipments.
2: Chris campaign ending.
I have played all the Resident evils in all the playstations more than once and I like them all no matter how bad are their ratings, I like resident evil for not only its horror but also for its story, the horror in the new ones is not interesting but at least it's story is.
I can't tell if this game actually has body targeting or not because he's only shooting at the torso. It would be stupid to just shoot at an enemy who doesn't react to leg shots and stuff. The monster doesn't even stop, just plows through the bullets and knocks you down.
I miss the RE 2-3 series with the zombies and other monstrosity. Sometimes i wonder if the designers and developer are RE_t@rds for keeping on developing bad games, its not what they want its what the fans want that matters cause they are the consumers. They should start listening to fans specially when Dead Space is Way better than the past RE games.
In short return the Zombies and make it more a survival horror like the old ones instead of making bad games because the anticipated RE6 and OP: Raccoon City sucks Hard!!
Is this an apology from Capcom for the travisty that was RE6? Leon's campaign in 6 was the closest thing to the original authentic RE expeience.
This series needs to go old school quick, because Dead Space has stolen your crown!
After RE5 i vowed to avoid the series, then played RE6 after so much hype, was again disappointed. Was looking forward to this title because i know how successful it was on 3DS but, what are these enemies what happened to just plain old zombies? On RE6 my favorite campaign was Leon's because it was actually zombies not mutants, giant insect humans, and such. I know they tried with ORC and...well that was not too fun ether. I think the series needs a HUGE reconstruction.
I loved this game on the 3DS and I'm really looking forward to it on console.
If you've never played it before on the 3DS, you're in for a treat!
Not the best story. But it was very fun for a handheld game, hopefully they will add enough to make it worth while on a console.
If there is still a pain in your heart from RE6 then this is the game to check out. I personally think this should be played on 3DS but the game is still worth playing on console.
Well, after 6's tepid reception, it's a no brainer for them to try to milk the franchise for what they can before everyone starts hating on it permanently. May Capcom should hire ole Cliffy B. to pump some life back into the franchise. At this point, it sure as hell wouldn't hurt. 6 is pretty much an abomination of what made this series so spectacular in the first place. A shame, really. I was really hoping 6 would be a return to its roots. Guess not.
REMAKE RESIDENT EVIL 3!!!!!! Don't change the gameplay at all....just update it like RE for Gamecube!!!!!!
I quit playing Resident Evil after 5. 5 was laughable. Oh how I must plug in my PS, GC, & Dreamcast to enjoy a RE game.
Resident Evil Revelations on every console except Vita. Even the "pirate's heaven" PC is getting it.
Vita is dead LOL
I've played RE Revelations on a friend's 3DS. And a game this awesome should be available on as many platforms as possible. EVERYONE should get to experience this game.
I'm buying it again ! XD
@edhc44 right... becuase 2-d platformers aren't still good games.
There is no such thing as an 'out-dated gameplay style' there is only games that don't age well. Capcom could easily develop a brand new RE game with it's core gameplay deeply in it's survival horror roots, and it could still be fun, scarey and otherwise engaging just like the old ones.
RE5 was a lot of fun, but it was more of a spin-off game than anything else, and basically for the Co-op. The game was litterally broken in certain instances in single-player thanks to craptastic AI.
Haha I wanna finish this again on Wii U before I finish RE6 on my PS3.. I'll do it one day!
@hishamramzan different =/= better.
You can't radically transform a series and widely justify the change with an incredibly subjective phrase like "becuase it's better now"
Sure, the newer controlls are fun, but people mostly didn't play the older RE games for the same reasons they are playing the newer ones. They are just far too different for that to be the case.
As I'm typing this, MILLIONS of people are waiting in the wings to purchase and play a Resident Evil game in the vain of the originals.
Mark my words, if capcom made an engaging cinematic RE game with all of the core gameplay elements of the first two games, you would see resident evil sales records breaking.
Just imagine the kind of atmosphere you could get with a next gen resident evil game! The kind of atmosphere you just can't get with an over the shoulder action game.
@Tygraph he's a zombie...
@RAD_TRBO I was going to type my comment but beat me to it....except I stuck to not bothering with RE6. This is coming from one of the biggest fans of the series. I just couldnt handle the partner system in RE5.
Consoles are lame like that.
@ozzmarkk Do agree, don't see any "zombies" yet... Not too impressed with the controls, and it seems RE have lose its character. No longer the genre leader.
"Jill's caught up in a terrorist conspiracy"
Why? Isn't this a survival horror with ZOMBIES. Can't the terrorists just stay in COD and RE concentrate on SURVIVING. Urgh, who cares anymore.
@naomha1 Yeah, except Cliff retired a while back.
@naomha1 I completely agree, other than Leon's campaign which wasn't all that spectacular i hated the game entirely!
@Change_MyShorts That an RE2, i remember playing that as a kid and it was Incredible! They should just update them both to HD give them both to us in one game and....life would be complete!
@MrKirios Borrowed some steroids from Chris :)
@ZexionLuv I scream for a Steam release!
@Printul_Noptii YES, i have been saying this for so LONG! It was the BEST of the entire series, why they wouldn't do like a throwback package and just remake 2 and 3 put them together is beyond me, because honestly it would actually be quite profitable im sure!
@Printul_Noptii Hell, I'd be happy if Capcom simply re-released the PC version of RE2 on Steam and GOG.
