At least we can move and shoot now!
Dead space brand > resident evil brand
Until Dead Space 3, which is looking to be more lile DS = RE (Meaning they're both action games now, not horror games)
Still don't really like the direction RE is going but i'll give RE6 a shot.
At least bla bla bla. Kid journalism.
GOTY! Loved the demo and love the improvements capcom have made since e3.
This game will not do very well on Metacritic. It is not 2008 anymore. They are trying to go after the COD market, it shows and it's not working.
Tell that to higher sales numbers than ever. The 3 versions of RE5 have half a million more sales than the 4 versions of RE4.
But still less than RE 2 on all platforms.....
If Capcom were to release RE5 today it would not do these numbers. RE5 despite being action-oriented had the advantage of being introduced on new hardware at the time. RE6 doesn't achieve the same technological leap and looks like RE5 in disguise. The franchise is a shadow of it's former self.
Resident Evil Outbreak File#2 was the first RE that had move and shoot. But I like how he long empty hallways is bringing RE back to it's "roots"......
Unfortunately, on all platforms (excluding digital sales) RE 2 actually sold half a mil less than RE4, and RE3's sales were just sad in comparison. And like I said RE5 outsold RE4 by half a mil. Not to mention that preoders for RE6 already beating out any previous preorder records for the series and will have the advantage of a further established system fanbase.
