Twinfinite writes: Resident Evil Revelations 2 got its first hands-on demo at Tokyo Game Show 2014 and Capcom proves to fans that they're still capable of survival horror.
No it dosen't. Nothing we've seen yet looks like they know what it is still They still want to go with the action route but pump out well crafted trailers to make it look like it's going to be horror based. Just like they did with RE5, RE6 and Revelations They added co-op again, says it all
Actually, I played the demo at TGS. It's still action-oriented, yes, but it's a definite effort on Capcom's part to bring it back to 'survival horror'.
If they wanted to bring Survival horror back they wouldn't of added half the shit in Revelations 2. They did exactly the same for RE6, people played Leon's demo at TGS and other conferences where it's set in the spooky house, said it was bringing back survival horror then the full game comes back and we find out it was a trick.
Looks like the same tune played on a different fiddle typical Capcom and their rated 12 style action horror games these days.
Oh my god seriously, you haven't even played the game and you want to tell someone who has he's wrong? I have seen the footages and I swear if capcom had never said co-op and you saw the people switching from Clair to Moira on the fly you'd be salivating from the mouth saying it's a return to form and that it adopts the Resident Evil Zero style. Seriously if you saw the footage you'd see these things. Low ammo, a nice horror setting, and the co-op character only using a flashlight meaning you're left to deal with everything on your own. Seriously how about you stop trolling these Revelations 2 articles and do something else, it's sickening to see people calling the game out without trying it out and complaing because you don't like some of the features.
It's funny how people like foxtrot who complaint sooo much and saying he will not buying the game, but in every news for Revelations 2 we saw him as the 1st commenter. Anyway, i'm glad we can switch between Claire and Moira in the fly just like Rebecca & Billy in RE Zero, one of classic RE that got praised a lot by RE fans.
@ Inception Yeah it's fricking ridiculous, besides a lot of the cover it's gotten has been pretyy positive about a more survival horror approach. The complaints these trolls bring are just dumb, co-op, that doesn't ruin the horror, read my blog I cover this subject. Episodic, hello anyone remember Siren Blood Curse, seriously just a lot of trolls trolling or babies crying.
You really can't prove anything yet until you have played the game. People who have played the demo are saying that it feels more survival horror than the past games. Yes, we were let down by 5 and 6 in terms of survival horror; but you should really sometimes give developers the benefit of the doubt. It's not like we have anything left to lose with the Resident Evil franchise.
Revelations 2 Proves Capcom Knows What 'Survival Horror' Is'' Hyperbole much? The game not looks Survival Horror. Not even close of this.
I'll believe it when I see it... In the bargain bin
Revelations was one of the better RE games. This one seems more focused on horror, but still maintains the action. So, I'm excited.
Well where to Beguin with this... Its co.op again :/ its a AI character what you can't control :/ its shit action again :/ story is kind of a rip off of code Veronica's prison island :/ the graphics suck ass... The game play looks just as bad as resi 6 the story sounds kind of stupid.. Oh look its Claire ! With Barry's daughter........really what a coincidence ! No shit..... Come on ! I seriously give up with this now :/ I'm gonna wait till the original makers come back to do one or I'm not brothering!!
you can control A.I. character like RE 0
"its a AI character what you can't control" Nope, you can switch between Claire and Moira in the fly, just like Rebecca and Billy in RE Zero. "story is kind of a rip off of code Veronica's prison island" Classic fans DEMAND a setting like code veronica and capcom fulfill it. But now someone complaining it's a rip-off of classic RE, LMAO. "I seriously give up with this now" Yeah yeah than don't buy it. Problem solved.
Until Capcom truly goes back to their survival horror roots and formula that made Resident Evil 1 and 2 a smash hit success or evolve and do something on the level of Outlast (music, atmosphere, limited weapons if any at all, true scare moments etc...), they will continue to skate uphill trying to get Resident Evil back to its former glory. But even if Capcom does get some of that glory back it might not or won't be enough or will be to late because the survival horror genre is making a come back big time from other developers using the power of these next gen consoles doing and adding things in the games that hasn't been seen before, each and every day Capcom loses more and more ground to these new developers if they keep putting out these Resident Evil games that's supposedly gone back to its survivor horror roots when the game is very similar to the action aspect (RE5, RE6) in the games in some form or fashion.
I do agree with you to a certain extent. I also think we need to be careful what we wish for. Resident Evil 1, 2, 3 and Code Veronica X are great games (Resident Evil 1, 2 and Code Veronica are in my top 20 games easily) but I also think a lot of younger players simply would not be bothered with the puzzle solving, back and forth style of gameplay and limited ammo. It worked well back in the PS1 days because it felt new and revolutionary. If the franchise went back to limited ammo, locked camera angles, puzzles and 10 minute journeys to and from areas, I think a lot of people would also complain. Trust me, I would love to see how it could work and no one supports the idea more than myself of removing the action and focusing on the horror, but we would also have a ton of people complaining about it. Still, we have REmake HD to look forward to.
Love how everything RE gets good press but evil within seems to get crapped on... IMO The evil within blows revelations 2 out of the water.
I agree with you, best believe Capcom is shaking in their boots knowing they're gonna have to face their former employee's game and get shown how to make a true survival horror game in this next gen.
Really ? looked like Resident Evil 6 all over again, made me interested in The Evil Within even more.
