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.

"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_Lee1503d 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.

user54670071503d 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.

Hufandpuf1503d ago

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.
