Resident Evil 6 Chris demo is action-movie paradise | Destructoid

Destructoid: I can't believe I'm saying this, but I actually preferred the non-horror, Call of Duty-inspired Chris section of the Resident Evil 6 demo to more horror-focused bits starring Leon. I REALLY don't want the Resident Evil series to turn into just another competitive, fast-paced shooter, but I'd rather play that kind of game than the walking slowly down corridors for ten minutes brand of "horror" that I found in Leon's scenario.

Man, I really hope that was just a bad demo. Leon's part in Resident Evil 6 was the stuff I was most psyched for. Now I'm afraid it will be the worst. (E3, PC, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360)

"action-movie paradise" ironic way to put it. though i love how all these idiots are buying into the hype and are even considering buying this game, not because RE has turned into nothing more B-action movie wannabes. But the fact that all of you disregard that this game is just about assured to be "Incomplete & Have Locked On-Disc Content" that way they can sell all your content back for premium. I've seen alot of people who were jumping at CRAPCOM's neck for that exact thing now that this game is coming out all huff & puff talk is out the window. Nothing but Hypocrites on this site.

As much as i want it to go back to being survival horror, i don't see it happening but i do think the game will be alright, just that it would be alot better with survival horror.

Agree completely. The game doesn't looks necessarily "bad", but it no longer has that "classic" feel (but I it doesn't intend to... it's quite clear it is action focused). I do wish they could cater to action fans and the horror fans since they are having multiple campaigns, but what I have seen from Leons footage is still a bit heavy on action. I will have to wait until I see more. It doesn't necessarily look bad, but it does look different. I will wait until the gold edition, directors cut, goty edition version is released (as usual) before I buy.

I was shaking my head when the guy asked what can the enemies do to counter your sliding and movement enhancements. He said they can shoot you.. how about that.

Wish I was there so I could say thats retarded. So much for survival horror.

Looks like Leon's campaign will be more survival horror.
Chris' campaign will be action-oriented.
And Jake's campaign will be a mixture of the two.

That's the vibe I get.

Apparently Leons story has hardly got any survival horror elements in. Journalists has apparently said while previewing the game that it's the worst campaign out of all 3 because they just use cheap ways of adding survival horror elements and because it still plays like a full on action game.
Son_Lee  +   829d ago
And we've seen, what, 10 minutes of Leon's campaign? Out of 10 hours or so? Of course they won't show the horror sections - or best sections for that matter. They just wanna show what will "wow" everyone. And action wows more than horror.
user5467007  +   829d ago
Well what Capcom apparently showed was the horror sections

I mean if your were if there situation you would want to give gamers the impression that you've listened to them. You wouldn't show off action if your trying to convince people it's survival horror. They wouldn't keep that from us if they are trying to sell us the game.

Not what i wanna hear from a supposed "survival horror" game but not unexpected since seeig the gameplay videos of RE6.

Well the game is said to be 30 hours long in terms of the campaign. That has something going for it. I will buy this game when the price drops to the bargain bin, because then I'll be less disappointed than spending 60 bucks.

I'm only going to play this for the story. Going into the game expecting an action game still isn't enough to satisfy me. I remember when I played RE5, and I knew it would be more action oriented, but I was still disappointed because I didn't like the direction the series went.

I remember reading somewhere that Capcom said RE6 will be less scary for people who were too scared to play RE5. WHAT?! I don't believe it! Is there anyone here that was actually that terrified of RE5? I refuse to believe such rubbish. Whats with these developers making games less scary so that they can get a wider audience when clearly, the wider audience wants more scare factor.

Been looking forward to RE6, hearing that any part of it isn't looking good is distressing, regardless of supposed genre.
Good thing is, as long as you haven't been living under a rock, you know that the Leon scenario is poorly portrayed in the demo, the bulk of which is an atmosphere focusing escort mission, bad move on Capcom's part.
Still a day-one purchase for me though, I have no doubt that although not perfect, this game will be amazing.

The only way i would get interested in a RE game if Crapcom launch RE Outbreak File 1 and 2 HD Collection with FULL online, or better yet RE OUTBREAK FILE # 3 with new characters and classic RE gameplay.

The outbreak series made me feel fear because the zombies are relentlees and there are a FEW safezones were zombies doesnt respawn and the viral status made me feel like that any action i would take would be crucial. The flashback and end of the Road scenarios are my favorite areas in ANY RE.

This action oriented series is not RE anymore, even Leon chapter doesnt give me any scare in the slightest because Leon has too many moves to counterattack any zombie action, complete fail.

An Outbreak File #3 would be amazing!

This series need an OUTBREAK iteration to get in shape, with todays online capabilities RE OUTBREAK could be the game that can restore RE former glory.
