New Resident Evil is a shooter first, horror game second - Capcom

OXM: "Capcom isn't "aiming for another horror game" with Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, according to producer Masachika Kawata. The new title will take a "different direction", proffering "regular shooting game specs and features" under the Resident Evil brand."

Shame :s

Survival horror is dead on consoles this gen, IMO. Dead Space 2 was fantastic, but it wasn't what I'd call "horror" as such - more gruesomeness and a sense of frenzy.

MidnightWatcher2485d ago

I personally would call Dead Space a Survival Horror, but you seem to have forgotten the best survival horror was released this gen and it's called.....

Amnesia: Dark Descent.

This was the scariest game ever made and it was a huge success selling about 500,000+

Here's a video which shows how amazingly scary this game is

I spent the whole 7 mins just trying to figure out what the heck he was so afraid of -_-. I heard this game was really scary but if that vid was suppose to prove it, it fails.

I just looked up some more gameplay of Amnesia Dark decent. I really dont see how the game is so scary.

dirigiblebill2485d ago

Agreed - Dark Descent was amazing, but they've yet to announce a console version :)

sonicsidewinder2485d ago

I bought amnesia last night in a steam sale.

It is undeniably unnerving.

evrfighter2485d ago


sounds to me like you made your decision on Amnesia before you even looked the game up. Don't own a decent enough pc I take it?

Now I'm extremely worried XO

"New Resident Evil is a shooter first, horror game second" Hmmm...Like RE5?

dirigiblebill2485d ago

I think the key thing is that they're not trying to pretend otherwise this time...

Baka-akaB2485d ago

more like shooter first , action movie second , and if we feel like it we'll throw you an horror sequence as dlc .

guigsy2485d ago

And RE4. The last horror game in the series was probably Zero.

Capcom, almost every decision you have made this gen is absolutely ridiculous. What happened to you guys?

Andf where's Dino Crisis and Monster Hunter PS3?

beavis4play2485d ago

agreed - capcom doesn't appear to be a AAA developer any more.

kataloni102485d ago

silent hell is the only horror game this gen

kataloni102485d ago

Alan wake is for me goty but it wasn't scary that much

bozebo2485d ago

There are more horror games this gen than any previous gen lol.

Baka-akaB2485d ago

er no .. not even close lol.

But there have been a few good ones this gen

DelbertGrady2485d ago

All Silent Hill games so far this gen have sucked big old smelly balls.

Baka-akaB2485d ago
