Want horror in your Resident Evil? Wait for Resident Evil 6

This is the type of news that quite frankly can make one pretty upset. Sure the whole premise behind Slant Six’s upcoming Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is one that should hold a strong entertainment value, but will it have the horror many fans have been asking for since the release of Resident Evil 5? No.

if they can bring back the older RE games with a worthy story and updated controls, it might be worth a look. I just hope they don't continue doing trash like they did RE5. no more zombies with super speed and agility, take it back to its old roots Capcom.

The thing is, I enjoyed Resident Evil 5, it provided good closure to the plot that started with the original mansion incident. The execution of the story could've been better though (obviously is zombies and other classic enemies/aspects were present).

What made Resident evil 5 good is the co-op with another player in my opinion but it was not really resident evil

I_find_it_funny2808d ago

RE5 was a good game, but it wasn't Resident evil, as a RE game it was crap, slowed down L4D

JBoc9732808d ago

I think Revelations for the 3DS is going to do a good job of bringing back the horror aspects to the franchise.

RE5 was my favorite of the whole series. I know it might not be everyones cup of tea, but the original RE games had some of the worst controls in any game EVER.

The Co-Op in RE5 was also a huge selling point with me, more games need to incorporate that into their games.

To be honest, I've never felt any of the RE games were scary, no game has ever provided a bit of terror in me.

Two points.

1) The awkward controls were part of the game that MADE them into the games they were. Franticaly trying to gain a few precious yards so that you could turn and nail whatever the hell caught you off guard will always beat run and gun controls for the horror genere.

2) Are you telling me you didn't jump when the first dog burst through the window in the hallway? Or the first time the thing with the huge claws (damn you memory) nailed you from the ceiling? If so, then there is nothing that will make you jump. Period.

The controls made the game less enjoyable for me, the games were still pretty good, I remember having a fun time with Code Veronica on the Dreamcast.

I think I'm the type of person that just isn't scared by games or movies or anything like that, never have been. I think I remember thinking the original Silent Hill on the PS1 was "Creepy" but I've never jumped or been scared by a game or movie.

Much prefer the tighter controls and camera angles in the new RE games.

I hear you. For me it was the fixed camera angles that I found awkward, but again, that was all part of the allure for me.

Silent Hill didn't do it for me personally, not a huge fan of darkness heavy games. Having a sight line of about 1 yard just isn't my idea of fun.

HolyOrangeCows2808d ago

The camera angles made them more tense, but the poor controls kill it for me.

@ Daver
I agree with you completely. It was really fun with a co-op friend but wasn't really a Resident evil game. Ever since they introduced the plant parasite thing-a-ma-gig its story has gone down hill. I hope they somehow take it back to the roots with the slow zombie, limited ammo and put it back in a house or a resident of evil.

The last time I can honestly say RE was a horror game was before RE4. RE 4-5 were just action adventure games with plants attacking you.

Coolmanrico2808d ago

For me RE6 should have a slower pace, less ammo, a few more puzzles and enemies that can be so vicious that sometime you have no choice but to run.

I also think their enemies need to evolve. Possessed humans aren't very scary and zombies are everywhere now. As much as everyone want them back, Zombies were failed experiments of Umbrella and I don't see the point of bringing them back unless there is something about them that is different from the rest.
