"How it changed it for the worst" Fixed.

From RES4 onwards the series has been in free fall of horrible titles.

Hopefully the new RE game changes this and is looking like it just might.

Don't get me wrong RE4 was a good game, I just wished they called it something else and left the RE brand for zombies not pathetic parasites that are in now way scary.

I fully agree. While RE4 and 5 were pretty good games, they didn't deserve the RE name. I want fixed camera angles and tank controls back :(

No IMO RE4 was the pinnacle of the series and fright wise it went down from RE5, but was highly entertaining and worth the money and then some

ಠ_ಠ RE4 was not the pinnacle simply a turning point in the series. RE4 was an amazing game, but was not what most true RE fans we're looking for. The early mock ups of RE4 that had Leon in a large castle with
a dark fog chasing him was far more appealing then what RE4 actually turnout to be.

nope, it's not better .. I liked zombies + fixed camera.. with fixed camera there was more horror, because you didn't know whats behind the corner.. from 4 to 5 it became a shooter with horror elements.. 5th is only a shooter...played it once just because to see a story (can't wait for Revelations) :))

YoungKingDoran2753d ago

yeah, who didnt love RE4?
however, it couldve been a spin off.
or better yet, half way through the game, when you think youve got everything worked out, BAM zombies AND plagas.
now that woulda been cool.
