For years now, the main Resident Evil games have been getting bigger and bigger. They're still scary, sure, but they're less traditional survival horror and more action game. That's where Revelations comes in.
Glad they cleared this up for people who don't know and just jump to conclusions when they hear a new RE game is coming out.
Yes I'm glad they cleared this up. Thank you Kotaku and Crapcom! I guess this means they've been lying all along about getting the series "back to its roots". This is more like damage control now. It's no secret they were selling the name to fans and newbies alike while tarnishing the series altogether. Now they're saying the numbered series isn't even the true experience?! HA! Screw you Capcom! I hope all the fans read this article. I'm done with RE... Maybe all of Capcom for f**king over their fans into believing they were getting a real RE game until now.
Best way to deal with this is to wait for a sale. Like $5 or something.
Oh yeah, no more Capcom launch games at $60 a pop. Going second hand only (minus that remake of the GameCube game coming) Edit: no I think I'll buy that used too, out of spite
The RE series is dead confirmed by themselves...with this statement i lost every bit of hope that maybe RE (the canon numbered series) will return to its roots (and success)....Revelations are very cheap made and suffer from previous terrible Capcom mistakes (idotic Holywood features , uninspired , unimaginative , bad concept art and lot others) also they made it episodic to drain money as much as they can (offcourse mimicking the lame-also cheap- Walking Dead series)... now they clarify that numbered series will be action-only :(:(..after RE Remaster i would stop buying any RE game that will come afterward ...bye bye RE for good
How are they draining as much money as they can by going episodic when you can buy and try the first episode for $7 instead of buying a full packaged game for $60. Plus by going digital they make money only when people buy the episodes and not when the game is sold to retailers in the physical form. Also I think you have the wrong impression of the Revelations series because the first one was great.
Actually it's coming out on disc, with more content that won't be in the digital copy straight after week 4.
I see why you only have 2 bubbles troll!!! and also i have to tell people this all the time if you dont like it then dont buy it your ruining these things for the others if you cant except change then dont even bother commenting.
He is not trolling , they already lost a huge chunk of their fanbase and they come out and say that means thats it for us old school resident evil fans .
i dont have the right to comment and say my opinion???... why are you calling me a troll??? what are you?? some kind of Capcom s advocate ...my opinion is that the Revelation games are nt so well made and dont have the right production behind them so they re decent mediocre (crap for me) RE games in comparison to the old original games before 4 ....Capcom once again choose the wrong path by putting them as the classic horror games which fans ask and mutating the numbered series to shit COD clones ( afterwards they wander why their games dont sell)...so man stop attacking me ...make a comment for the game
You STFU i recon i have an opinion too and i think yours sucks im a fan of all resident evil games and yes ive even played 1-3 and code veronica i like the whole series equally and i know as much about the series then you do so accept change or STFU
-claps- Powerful argument, there's no proof that the changes to the series is hurting the RE.........err oh yeah Resident Evil 6's reception and sales.......nevermind.
I'm not convinced about Revelations 2, the episodic structure puts me off, but the first Revelations was an awesome game.... still the best looking game on 3DS and its raid mode was totally addictive
So let me get this straight they are basically admitting that there's no hope for the main RE series. They are trying to make out like Revelations is the horror series but they are just the same as the main series. They added co-op, I mean if you really were trying to separate them then you wouldn't of added it, it would of just been Claire and that's it.
Now this is what i call .BS , i mean come on here , they should try to appeal to your already half lost fanbase not mass audience . That is a statement i didnt want to hear . So Resident Evil 7 will be even more action oriented than 6 . :(
all im saying is if you cant except change then dont even bother arguing about it on comments and there is still tons of fans like my self not just the old ones if there werent then we woundt have a remake and a sequel on the way so they apparently still have hope for the series.
@Austin48 No offence but if someone has been a fan since the series since it first came out then I think they are a fanbase more loyal then a fan who has just started to like it when it changed for the worse becoming a a shadow of it's former self You are a fan of a franchise which isn't like the franchise anymore. So in a way how can you be a fan of RE when it's not even RE anymore, you like something totally different and in my opinion that doesn't make you a fan if you need a franchise to turn into something else for you to enjoy it.
"You are a fan of a franchise which isn't like the franchise anymore. So in a way how can you be a fan of RE when it's not even RE anymore, you like something totally different and in my opinion that doesn't make you a fan if you need a franchise to turn into something else for you to enjoy it." I wholeheartedly disagree with you here. I have been a fan since Resident Evil 1 on PSX, I own every game (except the Wii rail shooters and outbreak) and I am still a fan today. I enjoy the story canon. I liked the idea of the intertwining stories of Resident Evil 6. When Resident Evil 4 was released everyone was singing it's praises and it was the game that took the biggest drastic step with the over-shoulder view. Resident Evil 5 and 6 simply built on that engine. Capcom have gotten so much mixed perceptions from fans that I don't blame them for changing the formula (fans were complaining that the gameplay hadn't changed during Resident Evil 3, and now fans complain they want to go back to this kind of survival horror). While I agree that Resi 1,2,3 and CVX are the best games in the franchise, Resident Evil still has fans from the originals who still play today.
Revelations is good but its not the traditional survival horror RE we love. And shouldn't it be the other way around Capcom? Why would the main RE titles that started it all transition into an action game. If you wanted an action game, should of used the revelation title.
Because people complained during Resident Evil 3 that the game was stale and repetitive. Now people are doing a 180.
RE is completely ruined. I don't want to babysit AI in a survival horror game I want RE2 and 3 in 1 game, loved the combinding herbs and ammo and Nemisis of 3 to everything else in 2. That's what I want more of!
In RE Zero you 'babysit' AI and lots of classic RE fans praised the game for the "partner zapping" system, which from the gameplay trailer capcom decided to use it again on Revelations 2. So i'll suggest you to play the game first before complaining.
Resident outbreak have coop but people not complain anything
In Outbreak's defense it was still a survival horror. Resident Evil has become like a Micheal Bay & Uwe Bowl take on zombies.
Yeah and before Outbreak there's RE Zero where you must co-op between Rebecca and Billy. Hell, even in RE 2 there some co-op between Leon and Ada or Claire and Sherry. But all i seen are people praised both RE Zero and RE 2.
RE2 for me is the best game in the series..i will not colling that real co-op,it is on small segment of the game more like escort just like RE4-only some segments of the game not the whole game from most players these escort-co-op segments are the most anoying one ;P
@grayfox Sherry and Ashley can't do anything compare to Moira in this game. And what about RE Zero? practically you did co-op the whole game with Rebecca & Billy. But like i said, i only remembered classic fans praising the game.
From what I understand Revelations is viewed by fans as a halfway decent "Resident Evil" game. So I guess that's how they are different, considering RE6 wasn't even close to a halfway decent RE game.
Yup. I just finished it on PC. It's like RE4 with slightly better controls and NPC AI(I'm looking at you Sheva). I liked it better than RE5, haven't played 6 yet but I hear that's the worst one of the bunch.
Lmao I feel soo sorry for people who support CRAPCOM's rubbish antics. Only reason anyone gave a damn about REVELATIONS is because fans are desperate for anything close to a decent RE game. I just finished REVELATIONS and bloody hell where do I even start? Awful monster/character design, tedious, NOT scary at all. People complain when CRAPCOM rehashes content for SF, but everyone's praising them when they're literally re-releasing RESIDENT EVIL from the gamecube? Someone should wake me up when CRAPCOM releases a NEW GAME worth caring about.
Or desperate for anything resembling what they played 18 years ago refusing to accept the fact that the PS1 era ain't coming back. RE fans are just plain jaded and stuck in the past.
So does that mean that Resident Evil is COD based or Action? s/ And the RE: Revelation is the real horror survival? CAPCOM had tried to compete and dethrone COD, with their RE6 game but they failed.
This games shit now :/ I'm so annoyed by this...the last great resident evil was the remake on GameCube follow those resident evil 1 2 & 3 the remake and code voronica. Resi 4 was okay but that's where it started to go down hill number 5 & 6 absolute shit! This ones bollocks too so my advice don't buy it or your just encourage em pure and simple....
"Capcom Explains the Difference Between Resident Evil and Revelations" One completely forgets its roots for the Call of Duty crowd and the other's a backstabbing sequel that completely forgets which company platform it started on.
Looking at gameplay videos of Revelations 2, you can see how archaic and clunky the game is. It's not fluid at all. Sorry but making clunky controls does not mean horror, this was an excuse back in the 90s but not anymore. You can make a fluid game and still make it scary. TLoU is a great example.
Or Dead Space, at least the first one that is. Speaking of clunky controls, what's with Capcom putting the crouch button where the Left Stick is?
Absolutely. Why L3 = crouch? I think they just absolutely must go with the 1 button = 1 function solution, at least as much as possible. Don't know what's wrong with X.
