Capcom Confirms Resident Evil 5 Controls Change

After the Microsoft Media Briefing, Takeuchi confirmed that RE5's new controls will be on the TGS showroom floor. While he didn't go into any great detail about the changes, he did refer to them as "Gears-like" controls.

The story is too old to be commented.

They're not going for "Resistance style controls".

FatJoe33759d ago

I know, its a big shame. lol

Either way its still gonna be a hit game! The controls only take a few minutes to get used to anyway!

"So don't be surprised if at the Tokyo Game Show, the controls are different... I'm not confirming or denying anything, but we like to surprise people."

So what he's REALLY saying in not-so-many words is:

Don't be suprised if...but wait, we wanna surprise you, but...maybe you don't like surprises so...but, what if half of you DO want to be surprised?

Maybe if I just tell you that we don't know what we're doing, then YOU can decide if you wanna be surprised or not. Yeah, that'll work(^o^)b

This is a day one purchase for me but i hope they dont change the controls it to much.

Resident Evil has lost its horror side of things already and for me the controls were the only thing left which makes it feel like Resident Evil.
Thier changing it into a action game and losing its survial horror roots.

Im gunna get disagrees for this..

run and shoot??? (simultaneously)


i hope so.. i know many other people liked the old controls, but i actually put me off the game.

i forced myself to play what i could, but i just didn't enjoy it that much wih the old controls. i still respect RE4 as a great game though.

i hope the changes do make it a more enjoyable game for everyone both for those who liked the old and those that didn't.

Run and gun is standard, the tough control help induce panic and are what sets resi evil apart. you have to judge whether u can stand ur ground and commit to fight or retreat then take on the enemies, its adds tactics to the game.

god I hope its not a run and gun there are enough crappy run and gun games out there. I also dont want GoW with zombies

ZombieButcher3759d ago

A little more Gears would be nice. I prefer those over the RE4 controls. But I will still be getting this game either way.

jtucker783759d ago

I guess with this generation of consoles and all the enemies that can be rendered on screen at once that you can't fend them all off if you have to stop to shoot.

Run and gun ... or at least walk / strafe and gun would seem logical.

Megatron083759d ago

walk and strafe be nice but not run and gun.
