wow...this guys article reads as if he'd made up his mind before seeing anything. i can't believe this game is THAT bad.

I still don't understand how anyone can make a judgement about this game with just demo footage. I'd like to know what it's like to actually fix it.

highly unprofessional to call a game dead before arrival.
especially when its being made by sure most of these journalists have had a rich history of making survial horror.but give the poor guy a chance.
i mean dead before arrival?not even colonial marines was dead before arrival.and the other half of the previews are praising the exact same thing this is shitting over.
the guy doesnt need to pant and scream like little girl all the time.
given the game time of the demo,he's possibly grown accustomed to this stuff.screaming at every monster you see is unrealistic and stupid.
also its probably our fault he doesnt know the name of the protag.the guys a gaming journalist,its literally his job to know stuff.
not to go watch presentations and eat buffets ,and then spout ignorant crap.
did anyone ever find it odd how leon in re4 didnt pee his pants 90% of the time?why ?because he's hardened and not a little girl.
not even outlast remains scary after a while.
i mean yea,shit hit the fans,youre screwed we get it,
now get your shit together and do something about it.and for god's sake its no longer a surprise those wierd things wanna kill you so stop panting and acting surprised all the time

Maybe I just have bad taste, but this game looks good to me.

"The main character (I don’t know his name because it was never said, and there was no introduction to the demo) walks through a crumbling downtown of a city. Buildings and sidewalks are collapsing all around him. He never acknowledges any of these extraordinary events. The ground beneath him falls, plunging him about 30 feet below into unknown waters. He makes no sound. No scream, no inner monologue. Just silence."

^ It's 2014 and we're still getting triple A games that do this?! Has Shikami learned nothing from the last of us or Outlast? A main character reacting to the things that is happening to them is one of the essentials to this neat thing called IMMERSION.

It's just unplayable demo footage. Hardly something to judge the final product over.

Dragon_for_Lunch1867d ago (Edited 1867d ago )

Yeah let justified a game base on a unplayable demo, trailer or video. Its not like game in the past have fake all they have to offer in a trailer /s Dead island anyone?

theDECAY1867d ago

I actually never thought this game looked good. I was hoping for more, and all the footage I see makes me more worried about the final product. I liked RE4, but I was hoping this was going to take a more survival horror approach. That is what it has been spouting. I hope I'm wrong, but I'm won't be surprised if this is a sad re-hash of the RE4 style.

mogwaii1867d ago

It will be struggling to get out of those shackles.

randomass1711867d ago

Calling this a RE4 rehash is like saying Mighty No. 9 is a Mega Man rehash. It's quite like the former, but it's made by its creator. It will have the same great feeling but it will have its unique stylistic spin. Shinji Mikami is a game design genius and I trust him to make a great game.

nucky641867d ago

agree on mikami. he's the guy who created RE 1 and 2...i'll give him the benefit of the doubt until he shows he's lost his touch.

I really hope there isn't a large supply of weapons/ammo.

vork771867d ago

this is the creator of Re1 man he knows horror and what to do

TXIDarkAvenger1866d ago

I know that. The author of the article said there was a large weapon wheel, I don't want this to be RE6 where you can shoot and punch your way through.

jhoward5851867d ago

I'd really like to see the same demo they saw to get a better idea of why they said it wasn't scary.
