Resident Evil 6 Producer: 'You Won't Be Disappointed'

NY Post writes: Resident Evil 6 came out yesterday, and while we’ll have a full review of the game shortly, it was such a marquee title for the month, that we wanted to find out more about it.

The sixth official, numbered game in the long-running horror/action franchise is probably the longest; finishing Leon’s campaign for instance, can take at least eight hours on single player. (And that’s just one of four separate campaigns players choose from; but you have to beat the first three to unlock the fourth one.)

Each campaign has a different style of play that is reminiscent of previous Resident Evil games. To learn more about that design decision, as well as some other key features of the game (you can finally move AND shoot at the same time!), I recently spoke with a producer on the title, Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, over email. (PC, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360)

"To all our old Resident Evil fans, new Resident Evil fan and lapsed Resident Evil fans, this is a horror game that all of you can enjoy. Please check it out. You won’t be disappointed."

OH. MY. GOD. The denial here is just so pathetic he should've just ended the interview with "Hope you enjoy it".

Resident Evil 6 Producer: 'You Won't Be Disappointed'"

Too late, too late.. I am disappointed already Crapcom '-'

Wow. That last statement from the him sure sounded a lot like begging. I'm passing on RE6. I base most of my purchases on review scores and head to head results. I think this guy knows that most gamers do the same and that RE6 is in big trouble. Hence the begging at the end.

I kinda feel bad for's sad seeing people make mistakes.
showtimefolks  +   1153d ago
don't buy this game these developers are lying you will be disappointed no doubt about it. This is not horror this is a 3rd person action shooter with quick time events like heavy rain and ausra wrath

so its not a horror game
its not a very good 3rd person cover based shooter
and its not a very good QTE game like heav rain

it does nothing exceptional

capcom you are the worst PUblisher in gaming right now and worst than activision or EA combined.
Lucretia  +   1153d ago
funny because me and my fiance are loving it. If the old school players dont like leon's campaign there is a problem. It's way tougher than RE4 and 5. more enemies, You die a lot, the ammo runs out so fast, your stamina drops to zero if your grabbed.

i can understand the hate for chris' campaign, but not leons
Carl_Shocker  +   1153d ago
Jeez Lucretia...your lies and denial are worse then Capcoms

Tougher then RE4 and
Tctczach  +   1153d ago
Were they even serious about this game? It sucked IMO. It didn't feel like RE at all. Quite sad actually.
xPhearR3dx  +   1153d ago
Honestly, I felt Leon's campaign did at first. In fact, half way through chapter 1 until the end of the chapter screamed classic RE. Then it just fell off from there. Towards the end I was screaming WTF is this.
Pozzle  +   1153d ago
It's strange that a lot of people say Leon's campaign reminded them of old RE. I thought Ada's campaign was closer to old-school RE than anything else in the game. Leon's was just a slower-paced version of RE5 imo.
LiquidSword93  +   1153d ago
Wow! The producer is stepping in to dismiss our fears. I guess everyone should just trust him and pay the 80 bucks for this wonderful survival horror game! /S

I am dissapointed. Gonna do an achievo round up and trade it in.
Jovahkiin  +   1153d ago
Just finished Leons campaign ... it is kinda growing on me. The lack of costume select or weapon select or weapon upgrading is a severe letdown though.
MxRBrobaFett  +   1153d ago
"You won't be disappointed" is what the old guy said before I got in his van... Not falling for that one again
taquito  +   1153d ago
"You won't be disappointed" was disgusted, it looked awful, horrid controls, ran terrible, textures were unbelievably low res, pc version better look 10x better, so glad i rented, its going back tomorrow

re5 on pc was a VAST improvement over the console versions, but this one needs even more!

You mispelled "horrible".
RivetCityGhoul  +   1153d ago
as someone who loved RE 1-5. i gotta say the game was highly disappointing. everything about this game made me cringe. its nothing like 5, 5 was so much better than this shit.
AdaptAndOvercome  +   1153d ago
I'm not disappointed. I like it.
Blues Cowboy  +   1153d ago
Wow... are 3 people really disagreeing with that? Really? Pretty sure AdaptAndOvercome knows whether or not he's disappointed and doesn't need to be told what to think...

(I was a bit disappointed)

I have played every Resident Evil game I can think of, this is different but it isn't as bad as people are making it out to be.

TheDivine  +   1153d ago
Minor frustrations aside so far im diggin it. Leons campaign screams classic RE (Raccoon City like environments and classic zombies), Chris' screams RE5 (action and whatnot), Jake's is new and fresh (feels like playing Wesker really), and from what ive heard Ada's has the classic puzzles and all that jazz. Theres def something for every RE fan. You might not like all of it but damn is it a huge game and it does try to include all fans.

The action is fun also. It takes a while to get used to it and learn the complicated stuff like sliding, rolling, dodging, and other aspects but once it clicks your good. Its faster and more intense which some may not like. To me it feels like an evolution from 4 to 5 to 6 as opposed to a totally new game. I just wish there were more closed environments that require keys, exploration, and backtracking. Theres some but its mostly pretty linear which is the biggest thing that hurts it imo. I also miss the slow pace and stopping to examine everything. Still judge for yourselves.

All that said so far i think i enjoyed Revelations more. I liked the exploration and having to find weapons and level them up (attachments and all). I really loved the ships atmosphere and the dark gothic story. The disjointed story hurts RE6 unless it gets tied together nicely later on (which it might). I do miss alot of stuff that gave it that classic feeling but alot of it makes the game more fun and enjoyable to play. Pros and cons.

Nice try but no cigar! we are very dissapointed
Rockefellow  +   1153d ago
8 hours for Leon's campaign, huh?
Playstation1984  +   1153d ago
it took me 7.30 hours to do with exploring.
GTRrocker666  +   1153d ago
Im going to have to rent this.. surely it cant be THAT bad... can it?
Playstation1984  +   1153d ago
no it's not, it,s the best resident evil so far. It took me about 8 hours to do leons story and i enjoyed it, and when i unlock infinite ammo i will replay it. My personal opinion is it's worth your money, to many people cant't except times have changed.

Where do we start a petition to get these Executives at Capcom FIRED??

Their investors will not be happy after seeing the numbers for this game. lol.

WE ARE THE CUSTOMER HERE. We are the ones calling the shots. We just need to organize.

If a hundred thousand people can make a petition to get Dark Souls released for the PC then a few million of us can get these scumbags ruining our games fired.

Now if a petition to fire people is too insensitive for you, we could also just sign a petition showing how many of the oldschool fans boycotted the latest installment. I'm interested in finding out how many of us oldschool RE fans there are out there!

But I want to see some blood for this. It's more entertaining that way. I want an apology from every member on the RE6 team.

It's arrogant to assume somebody won't be disappointed. Try asking them first.

"To all our old Resident Evil fans, new Resident Evil fan and lapsed Resident Evil fans, this is a horror game that all of you can enjoy."

Sorry Capcom but something that does everything will never be exceptional at one thing and that's what RE6 is, a game that tries to do everything and please everyone but falls short in all categories.

nope, gonna buy dead space 3 instead, at least the characters don't move like fucking tanks!
GenericNameHere  +   1152d ago
Jeezuz, did they really have 600 people working on this game? Or is that an exaggeration?

Sometimes, having less is better. Less people working on a game means less creative differences, less arguing between dev members, it's easier to express your idea and thoughts into making the game better, and people will pay more attention since there. Case in point.... I don't know. Go find out for yourself. I don't want to spend a few hours looking for games that had less than 50 people working on a game and whatnot. I'm pretty sure there are games that had less people working on it, that are popular now though :S
