OXM - Resident Evil 6 hands-on: promising game, terrible demo

OXM - Releasing a demo is a high-stakes affair. If the demo's excellent, pre-orders may double. But if it's merely good, or even excellent but a little too substantial, players may feel they've had their fill long before the finished article hits shelves. And a bad demo? A bad demo can be the kiss of death. Just look at now-defunct GRIN's Bionic Commando remake. It's not a perfect game by any stretch - po-faced and clunky, with an uneven learning curve - but it's a lot better, a lot more interesting than the shonky multiplayer trial makes out.

It's genuinely all right once you're a few hours in. But it makes a horrible first impression.

For an action game it's fine. Great perhaps. But they should've just made a new IP instead of slapping the Resident Evil sticker on it. Same with Devil May Cry.

Agreed, really like the demo, and so far it is a lot better than 5.

After the demo...I know my money wont be going 2 crapcom for sure, especially after they announced multiplayer part will be split and monetized to the max !

Wasn't a big fan of the first demo, they chose the wrong levels for it and the screen tearing was awful, but I played this demo earlier and really enjoyed it, and they've fixed the screen tearing! Huzzah!

How can a game look promising when the demo has been crap shows you that the game will suck and since it's went gold thats a huge problem.

I really feel this is going to get reviewed on the franchises name and not the game it's self.
