"Over the years, the Resident Evil franchise has changed quite a bit. When “Resident Evil 4” released, it had the series’ traditional survival-horror elements while adding action into the mix. Its successor, “Resident Evil 5,” went down a more action-oriented direction with less horror. While many seemed to enjoy “Resident Evil 5,” long-time fans of the series were not pleased with the new path the game followed."
