A look at the direction Resident evil has taken since it's inception in gameplay format to the what we play today. Is it better than the old days, or does it not even hold a candle to the glory days?
REmake, Resi 2 and Resi 4 so both I guess, just not 5....that...did not...compute
**Turns into Zombie -End UWWHHHAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAH
I've preferred the old myself. The new RE's are all just hordes coming after you instead of slow paced methodic gameplay.
I liked the story and I agree with you on the direction of the RE games, but it was a little hard to read due to some grammatical errors.
I completely agree with the author. I have been a big fan of the franchise(it was for a long time my favorite video game franchise, and that is saying a lot.) since the first re game released on the ps1, the franchise alone made me want to get a ps1 initially many years ago. But after playing halfway through re 4 I knew the series was beginning to go down the toilet. And what I realized after playing halfway through re 4 people are starting to now realize after playing re 5. The only good things that I can say of re 4 is the game-play(the old style of game-play is good also as it instills suspense) and the amount of content that is inherent to the ps2 version that I own, everything else that made the series great and successful in the past is gone. Re 4 was such a chore to finish for me the first time around that I did not even try to play it again and I did not even play the bonus content(except for the bottle cap mini game which wore real thin after a short while) because I was so disappointed on how fast the series turned for the worst. I only stomached a few hours of re 5 before I stopped playing, maybe I will give it another shot in the future. Believe it or not the original version of re 5 was supposed to go back to the series roots, but due to the stupid controversy involving a particular race capcom had to include co-op and thus the game had to change drastically due to the inclusion of co-op. Imo from what I have read the original version of re 5(before the inclusion of co-op) was above and beyond miles better than from what I have played of the final version of re 5, if anyone is interested in info regarding the original version of re 5 before it was changed go here:( http://www.relyonhorror.com... ). I own all of the re games from the ps1, ps2, ps3, and ngc(re 0, re 1 remake) and if capcom don't get their head out of you know where concerning where they are taking this series currently(ie: re 4, re 5) and start making good re games by taking the series back to it's roots, then for the first time since the beginning of the series I will stop buying future re game releases.
@skyblue14213 I have to agree, it felt longer than it had to be and there were very annoying parts which seemed to never end. In particular; inside the temple areas. I'm not sure if others feel the same way about that.
