'Resident Evil: Revelations 2' is suppose to continue the style of its predecessor and return the series to its horror survival roots. However Capcom is still trying to shoehorn co-op into another game despite how unpopular it is with fans.
Every gamer would agree that they are tired of co-op being forced into another Resident Evil game. Just make a damn MMORPG already or give up on multiplayer.
outbreak had good co-op but that's about it
They should remake the Outbreak games or port it, I would like to play them
Hell yea out break was some real resident evil type shit. Its just sad that when they did outbreak u needed to buy a modem for the ps2.
My problem is the fact that capcom says they've been taking fan feedback, but this co op garbage directly contradicts that
Not really because a lot of the RE fanbase seems to like the co-op as well. It's rather split.
RE fanbase? Sorry but the majority of that fanbase would of probably been introduced to the series with RE5 or RE6 and in my opinion they are not RE fans, they have become a fan of a changed franchise which has become a shadow of it's former self. I bet they wouldn't be a fan of the actual RE games would they People who like co-op are the people killing this franchise.
I would choose a good creepy atmosphere over a co-op any day. But since Capcom seems to have forgotten how to make good horror games, I am OK with a good co-op mode. Co-op was the only thing I enjoyed about resident evil 5, which was also the last game Ive played in the series. If they don't get the core concept right I will not buy another resi game, but if they do and then put a co op campaign on top of it this will be massively appreciated.
Problem is .. its all a line. Anytime they say were taking in fan feedback.. they are just trying to lure back their original customer base by bull sh*tting. They have been doing that a lot. Like when tehy said RE6 was going back to racoon city roots horror wise. Then you play the game and the zombies have assault rifles and there are 100s coming at u at the same time and u have unlimited ammo... oh and you dive and roll away from them, use martial arts, and have dual handguns. lol... ok capcom. Jerks.
But it does make sense for Chris and Leon to have all that. They're no longer rookies. They're trained professionals. Well-experienced. Elite status. Plus the threat they now face are no longer local. It's now global. Way too big for either one of them to take on by themselves. So co-op at this point is logical in the overall RE timeline.
Chris was never a rookie in any of the games. He was former airforce/ military and became a cop as part of a special unit. Doesn't change the fact that he now has unlimited ammo and looks like he is roid raging. Are you really going to dive and roll away from zombies? lol.. or do fancy spin kicks or suplex wrestling moves? Don't know how global or local factors into the horror. It changes nothing for coop. You can have other characters in the story without turning it into coop and giving everyone unlimited health and ammo. The first couple of re games treated every character as a real breathing person. All these RE games do is make every character some sort of clichy. Chris- the guy from gears of war... ada- the chick who for no reason keeps disappearing from a guy she had romantic feelings for lol cause shes somehow now batman with a grapling hook. Wesker- the guy who is suddenly a bond villain who wants to kill the planet and rule it?... where as in re1 he was just trying to sell a corporations secrets to the highest bidder and make some extra cash.
I personally don't EVER see co-op as a bad thing. Especially if it's optional. I think having options is always a good thing, I mean look at how a good game like Titanfall is stunted by it's lack of features and game types. It had potential to be AMAZING, and it was simply PRETTY GOOD instead. I never played the Co-op missions in Far Cry 3, (mostly because Nobody else was ever available to play with) but at least the option is there.
Optional is good. I agree. But resi forces it on you and if you don't have a partner they force an AI one on you. Just want a traditional RE game from 7 tbh.
Counterpoint - Co-op is good
Open-World Resident Evil (done right) is what i'm curious about.
Co op is the worst thing that has ever happened to Resident Evil.
I wouldn't say that, but the games just turned into action movies. Which makes it sad. I want something dark, gloomy, almost hopeless feeling. Be afraid at what might be around the corner next.
I'd say that Las Plagas was the worst thing that has ever happened to Resident Evil (crossbow sniper zombies were just goofy, and it got worst from there!), but co op is right next to it as well.
I quite liked RE5's coop. The problem with the game was not that you could play with a friend.
I like the path that Kojima is taking with Silent Hill by instilling a sense of horrifying ideas in the players mind. That is an excellent way to scare the shit out of the player. With Resident Evil, Capcom for the moment is taking a lot of ideas from the movies with all the matrix action and some john woo action. It took away from the horror. I mean... especially with zombies equipped with assault rifles, rocket launchers and portable gatling guns? They even coordinate a tactical ambush! Ridiculous! Scaling back to being real slow and steady on the horror scale will certainly bring this series back on track to success with the horror fans and newcomers looking for real horror. For example: An RPD father rushes home after news breaks of zombies infesting Raccoon City, to get his family to safety. (I'll leave the rest to your imagination...) No guns, no bullshit easy mode. Just horrific stories and horrific scenes while being very emotionally attached to the characters that may or may not join you. Maybe even pull a Morgan from Walking dead and then never meet again till near the end...!
The problem was exactly that, playing with a friend, because the game was designed around it.
If they are going to add co-op to a resident evil make it an option in the game. For an example you and your body decided to play resident evil co-op should be online like multi-player, no split screen and in multi-player should have modes like 4 vs 4 match with zombies so like ur team vs the other team between that you have to go through zombies, buildings etc.Or mercenary time limit.
Loved the heck out of RE5 because of it coop.
If only Capcom makes RE: Revelations 2 to feature 2 different storylines, one being truly alone, without Moira or Claire, and another being with an AI/Player controlled partner, then that would be awesome. Imagine playing the same game but with different scenes because you played the game twice: first without co-op, second with co-op. Now I would agree to this, simply because I will probably not play the co-op part. To be fair, many gamers who didn't grow up with the original RE games, those without co-op, seem to like RE5 and RE6; and there's nothing wrong with that. As for me, I would rather play a Resident Evil game without forced co-op.
I love co op and I thank Capcom for still offering it. I wish other games did the same. Right now there's only really Lego games, makes me wonder why I bothered with second controllers for my consoles!
no... coop doesnt fit to the canonical numbered series and it has a point should not be forced ...but in the spinoffs it s alright , in Outbreak was very good athough it was online
What CRAPCOM needs is to make a GOOD game...
I love the co op and i hope it stays in the series but they should make it optional to benefit us all.
which is the split screen not online.
I would choose a single player Resident Evil any day in a second, over co-op version. Surviving alone just makes it much better. Capcom don't realize that there still are pretty many of us, who actually loved the older RE games. But it seems they wanna appeal to new players by offering co-op, and gameplay mechanics that hold your hands while you play. At least in older RE, you had to think and survive alone. RE5 co-op partner AI drove me insane, when kept dying to those darn insects. If I want co-op I play a game like Borderlands. Anyway, at least we get RE1 Remaster :) and I hope REV2 ends up being good...but who knows.
I wouldn't mind co-op of it separated you both more.. At least you'd get the isolation then. There are all sorts of scenarios I can think of with puzzles or exploration that could benefit from being in totally different places. Having to get back to fend off whatever would be panicky and much better than 2 players sticking together.
Resident Evil 0 did that perfect, my favorite in the series.
Gears of war did it best for co-op.
Gears Of War is a TPS, not a survival-horror game.
Agreed but I want disputing that. I was making an observation on co-op in general.
i think i rather have coop as a seperate mission type thing. basically have a single player type game as main focus. doesnt have too have much enemies and focus on story without a mission based structure. co -op can just be rehash of single player assets, add mission structures possibly extraction type like find civilian a and then extract to safe zone or heliport. could even be squad type. i knw that last gen brought in the popularity of co-op built into main campaign but they only work for action type games.
Co-op should've been restricted to the Outbreak series because those game required team work in order to survive. Granted, the people i played with weren't helpful at all.
It's always a slippery slope when you add co-op to Horror, and Capcom fell right into the trap of ruining a franchise. Dead Space fell right into that trap as well, by forcing co-op. But i do blame that on RE4 instead, because they thought people wanted more action instead.
