A Resident Evil game that isn't survival horror isn't actually a Resident Evil game in my opinion. I hope the company takes a step back and realises that the fans want their RE games to be scary, that's what made the franchise popular to begin with. Sadly now they're just screwing with the fans.
the people who actually care about horror are the minority of the fans that's why RE4 and RE5 have outsold all of the other previous entries fact of the matter is horror does NOT sell like it once used to as for this game it sounds like a piece of junk to me and i wont bother with it unless i see something worthwhile
there's still a market out there for horror games but its not as huge as it used to be sales of RE started to go up the more they moved away from horror if i remember right RE5 is the highest selling one there will always be SOME horror left in RE but if your expecting it to return to the way it once was you should just stop because it wont happen
imo , it will fail unless resident evil sees the light like mortal kombat did, they followed their fans and now are wining them back (like me), i just hope the resident evil series spawns more genius ideas like nemesis or Birkin
@lociefer Resident Evil 5 didn't follow what the so called fans were asking for and it was a hit same thing for RE4 will this game be as big as RE4/RE5? i don't think so but will it fail? i don't think so it will sell at the least 2mil considering this is a non cannon spin off that will be good for itself
The reason RE4 sold well is because it's a very good game . Good games from a well-know franchise Sells ... that's a law fo the universe.
RE4 was awesome though. RE5 was a step or two down from that awesomeness.
they slapped the name Resident Evil in it to sell
resident evil stoped been survival horror since outbreak series friend, just before re4
Outbreak series was a survivor horror with co-op. If you ever played the game, you would see how scary that game can get especially when the other survivors die off. Play the game before you become judgmental.
While it's not the gameplay of traditional RE's, it pretending to. Nor is it RE6. It's a spin off set in the Resident Evil universe, so it had to have the Resident Evil title.
Re5 was OK but wasnt very much waht I wanted from a RE game. Im skipping this garbage for sure then. Have fun with your garbage crapcom, im going to get a gamecube and play the re Remake instead. Never played that one and Ive been wanting a survival horror RE for a while. I guess I wont be missing much if I skip this.
Us Horror fans can only hope for Revelations or RE6..
"It's no survival horror game” lol, soooo what your just going to use the Resident Evil name to get sales then? if it wasn't called Resident Evil no one would look twice at this crap. it's a shame it used to one of the best franchises. "Operation Raccoon City will appeal to many people. Not just RE fans, but also shooter fans in general." someone wants a piece of the COD pie, next they will announce 16 player competitive MP with perks and customisable weapons.
''There still are some horror elements in ORC. But Horror afterall is not the main topic of the game. Corresponding to this, hardcore fans of the series may not see it as a true Resident Evil title. Critic always happens. In terms of the entertainment value I am however confident that Operation Raccoon City will appeal to many people. Not just RE fans, but also shooter fans in general.'' LOL, probably to CoD-players
I was really surprised to read such a statement aswell! Throughout the interview Kawata repeats to clarify what ORC is. Still its set in the Resident Evil universe and if done well it could shed some more light on the backstory.
''Kawata: Right now, i cannot say anything about Resident Evil 6. I don’t even know if its in development. (the whole room full of Capcom employees begins to laugh).'' Kawata: Homefront shows how even the most shallow singleplayer campaigns can generate fortunes, but you know there is no temptation here for me. (the whole room full of Capcom employees ROFL collectively).
The game is horrific enough , dont worry . /s
Kawata: There's not so much terror in ORC, but believe me, it will be terrible
Well there goes my hope of an actual RE sequel with horror element out the window.
"It's no survival horror game” Nooooo, ya don't say!?
Why is Capcom trying to compete with Call of Duty? Can't they see Battlefield is having a hard time doing so? This is going to fail as most fans want a horror game, but the majority of shooter fans will be playing CoD or BF. Capcom is the most ignorant publisher/developer.
The only RE game that ever game me a real rush was RE3. When that tyrant would randomly meet up with you and you had to run away. A great thrill it was. I personally really liked RE5. Good story, very fun co-op experience. Over all just a good game. People who hate it are just butt hurt that it wasn't like the originals. Which is funny because RE4 has the same type of gameplay and general style as RE5 and that game wasn't hated.
Can't wait, sounds good, we need some variety, very excited 4 this one! :)
your joking me ffs just kill the series completely then because with the oldschool resident evil maker gone its only gonna turn into another gay shooter
At least he's being honest. I'll be staying away from this one.
This game will suck, blind fans will give their money to capcom to "try the game out"..."Give it a chance", capcom will take that money as the game being a huge success and people will get a sequel that nobody asked for, then people will moan. Honest truth guys, for the people who want to try the game, please just wait untill it goes preowned or down in price. Show Capcom they can't fuck us around....and give our most loved horror franchise to a crappy developer SlantSix
I miss survival horror. Really hope the new Silent Hill will deliver if RE has already decided it wants to stay Rambo.
and people still think that developers give a shit about their opinions. Hahahahahhhhhh!!!
