For me, it comes down to two questions:

1) Was that demo based off the near completed version of the game, or was it the demo from way back in March?

2) The game is split into 3 campaigns of two chapters each. How long is that actually going to last?

I tend to really enjoy the RE games, even though they have taken a turn towards action. Are any of you guys picking it up?

I played RE5 in my friends house and i didn't like it and i just thought resident evil games sucked , but the RE6 demo changed my mind. I'll probably get it when the price drops. :)

I've already bought it. For some bizarre reason it was released here in Australia yesterday, so i've been playing it. And i've been loving it. Admittedly i'm a big RE fan, and in the severe minority of RE fans who don't really mind that the series has gone a more action orientated route.

For me, it comes down to two questions:

1) Was that demo based off the near completed version of the game, or was it the demo from way back in March?

2) The game is split into 3 campaigns of two chapters each. How long is that actually going to last?

I tend to really enjoy the RE games, even though they have taken a turn towards action. Are any of you guys picking it up?

I can answer these questions for you.

1. I've only been playing Leon's campaign, so i can only comment on his part of the demo. The proper game is pretty much like the demo from what i can tell. It's a bit smoother and i've noticed a few different gameplay tweaks and features i never noticed in the demo (you can counter enemy attacks) but it's pretty much the same. That being said, the game gets better as you play. Eventually you get used to the controls and the gameplay mechanics (quickshot is surprisingly useful). It also gets much better looking. Seriously, it wasn't until i reached Chapter 2 of Leon's campaign that i started to notice how good things look. Basically the demo doesn't really do it justice.

2. Each campaign has 5 chapters. I'm at the beginning of chapter 4 of Leon's campaign, and it's listed my playtime as 5 hours. I am playing on Veteran difficulty, and i've died a fair amount, so that probably adds to it but i wouldn't worry about length if each campaign is this long. Also there's a fourth campaign after you beat the other three, and that one has five chapters too.

Probably wait for a price drop. I was originally going to pass on the game completely but the demo was fun so I'll give it a shot. I probably would even pick it up day 1 but Dishonored comes out a week later and I'm not sure I'd have RE6 finished by then so I'll wait.

RE6 is terrible compared to the amazing RE5. I don't know what went wrong in development, because the game is visually poor and has weak gameplay compared to it's predecessor which was released 3 and a half years ago. The demo was so average I was shocked. Definitely not getting it.

i dont plan to. it just looks like its been so focus tested that its not really anything anymore. even if they had the right direction, im not convinced the team has the ability to craft good situations after RE5.

Day one for me, I was a big fan of RE5's co-op campaign as well as single player. Don't know why people hated it, but then again most gamers are very picky with what they play.

Doubt it. Leon and Ada's campaign seem like fun but Jake's and Chris' look absolutely abysmal. I'm anxious for the reviews when they hit on October 1st at 9 am.

From what I've seen and read about the game, this seems like one I should avoid at all costs.

I lost interest after RE2. Unless I hear a STELLAR review (from a source that I trust), I'll probably pass. Of course, I was cynical about Dragon's Dogma and I LOVE that game (even though I had to start it over because I lost my save (with 30+ hours). Also, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite was a game I couldn't stop playing. So who knows, maybe Capcom will put out a winner this time.

Resident Evil is one of my favorite series, every since the original on the PSX I've been hooked. However, I was so disappointed with RE5 it has soured my taste for the games. Just when I thought things were going down a different, but favorable avenue with RE4, they decided to really exploit the new direction in RE5, and the results were quite negative.

I will probably wait on RE6 til a price drop. I'm pretty sure I will not purchase it at full-price. My new survival horror fix though is the Dead Space series, so I'll probably just wait for DS3...

Not anytime soon. First, I'll read the reviews. Then I'll scope out some gameplay footage on Youtube (I have to believe TheCoopMode guys will play it). If it still sounds/looks worth taking a chance on, then I'll wait until Capcom releases the inevitable 'Gold' edition and then catch it on sale for $20 or less. So, probably in a year to 18 months from now, I might pick it up.

most definitely, but I'm a little lazy so I usually just pre-order and have it delivered to my house. I went with BB, but every retailer has a different pre-order bonus http://www.dlcpreorder.com/resident-evil-6-pre-order-dlc-bonus-ps3-xbox-360/
