i'm a huge RE fan, RE1 being my favorite game in the series! sure RE5 wasn't my favorite game in the series, but i enjoyed it for what it was, personally i liked RE4 slightly more than 5. and after playing the RE public demo i get where people are coming from with how the controls are and how it seems like just a action shooter now. but it's still just a demo and anything can happen.
sure i had trouble adjusting to the controls at first, but that's cause i was so used to using RE4/RE5 controls, but it did not take long for me to get used to it. the camera could be improved slightly in my opinion, but it's not that big a issue to me, Leons portion reminded me of past RE games, which i liked, sure some of the zombies can use weapons, but not all of them do, and even then there still zombies, so they can't really use the weapons effectively which would make seance, plus they are C-Virus zombies, not T-Virus zombies, so u have to put that into account. being that said, anything is possible considering we don't know what the full effects of the C-Virus can do yet. so for all we know the C-Virus could cause zombies to take more hits, use weapons some times, not all the time, and shooting them in the head may take more than one shot some times, it's the C-Virus people, what do we know yet till the game comes out.
the inventory system is different, but overall it's just something i have to get used to is all. now as for Chris, a lot of people think his part of the game is too much like COD. if you were a true fan, u would know that the BSAA fights Bio Terrorism Threats, meaning they don't just fight B.O.W's, they fight against people who use them, so it makes sense for him to be up against these people, whether they have guns or not, they are using the C-Virus and B.O.W's, and must be stopped. even in RE5 people had guns, might as well call RE5 COD as well right? no! it was obvious that terrorism was going to be a new plot point in the series, aka resident evil degeneration, revelations, damnation which i saw already on Zune, and the enemies in his part of the story are not zombies with guns people!!! there using the C-Virus, they mutate and that's it, zombies can't use guns, get that through your heads.
