The Biggest Demo Backfires Ever

NowGamer: Has the Resident Evil 6 demo hurt Capcom's series? It almost certainly has thanks to Capcom picking a bland mix of uninspiring action and QTEs.

However, the Resident Evil 6 demo hasn't hurt the series as much as these demos hurt theirs... (Capcom, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360)

I would definitely agree that the demo gave people a negative perception of the game. Perhaps if they made the tutorial prologue the demo that would have been a better decision. That or just choose another chapter for each character.

so many qte's

I would say so, from what I have played those were the worst parts of the game so far. Although negative reviews also help.

Oh thanks goodness it wasn't just me. I LOVED RE 1-5 (yes, even RE5, and even managed to platinum it), but the demo for RE6 was just... Meh. I know demos don't represent the quality of the full version, but it just didn't feel right. Enemies using guns? The feck? RE5 may have been panned for being too "action-y", but at least it felt like RE4, albeit with a partner always with you. RE6's demo... Had TOO MUCH action. There was no single "horror" in both Jake and Chris' part. Just shoot like a madman, and spam Melee attacks. Leon's part was decent, and it could have been better if the producers just made him work solo. He's already proven himself a badass by surviving Raccoon City and the Los Plagas incident, so a new zombie threat shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Disappointment aside, did anyone actually buy the Premium Edition? The one that included Leon's jacket??

OMG, is it so hard to see that a Resident Evil in the vein of the 1st and 2nd game is what the fans want.

FFS, i can't believe how short sighted Capcom is.
