Id have a guess and say one third didnt even finish the game

Poor critical reception and low sales...

I think its time for CAPCOM to make an important phone call to a very important person at Platinum Games... you all know whom I'm talking about!

@ritsuka666

You mean at Tango Gameworks.
I don't think he be interested because he is working on his own horror survival games Project zwei.

Low sales? You realize it was the highest grossing resident evil ever right? Leons campaign was the whole reason to play but got to be too much towards the end.

Lower sales than expected arent at all the same thing as low sales .

Anyway , no surprise there , they wouldnt even let me truly play the game solo (as in no frickin' useless AI partner) .

You wanna build it ground up for co-op fine , but have the decency of letting those that wanna be left alone , truly alone if they care . Till then , not gonna buy a RE title , that i still might have played and even enjoyed , regardless of online opinion

Regardless of how poor the game turned out even with a 500 person development team, it proves that many gamers perfer to play their horror games alone.

I would say most gamers will play Dead Space 3 offline by themselves, before seeing what the online coop does to the game.

Developers and editors need to remember that yes we live in the online digital edge, but many gamers still like to play offline or alone. It's not all about online or multiplayer to some.

Maybe Resident Evil players just don't want a multiplayer game. Maybe they just want a good survival horror.
zerocrossing  +   665d ago
Having an AI or partner with you just ruins the experience for me, being alone makes it much more tense and claustrophobic and that's the foundation for a good survival horror imo.
Baka-akaB  +   665d ago
Yeah the only games in wich i accept permanent AI partners are rpgs . The rest can die in a fire .

Ironically most of those titles even give you the option to play solo , as seen with Capcom's own excellent Dragon's Dogma

Lol I couldn't agree more with that.

Actually come to think of it, one survival horror game managed to be scary and paired you up with some AI (Not all the time mind you) that was "The Thing the game" for ps2, pc and xbox... I think, anyhow part of the reason it was scary was cause your AI partners could turn on you at pretty much anytime and a thing could F your shit up faster than you can yell WTF is that thing?!.

From one of the best games of the generation (RE4) to one of the worst...how did this happen?

600 people to make that game is ridiculous, when From Software made Demon's Souls/Dark Souls with a team that's probably 1/10th the size.
HorrorGod  +   665d ago
I've maybe spent an hour total playing online. The "Agent Hunt" mode is fun... in small doses.
RE is not meant to be an online game. I enjoyed playing the campaign solo more than anything else.

Resident Evil 6 was better than RE5, in my opinion.
And with the "classic" laser site option turned on, and the new patch that allows me to pull the camera out from the character's ass, it feels more like RE4/5.
