Resident Evil 7 is the latest entry in the long running series, but it's demo Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour doesn't really live up to the reputation that the franchise has built.
Capcom confirmed to GameSpot that the demo is a prologue to Resident Evil 7 and a standalone experience--you won't find its content in the finished game. It also confirmed that the full game features a different protagonist than the one you play as in the demo. Link: http://www.gamespot.com/art...
And? That dosen't mean it's going to change the tone the game is going for. Yeah it might have a different character and story but the theme/stone of the game is set in stone. A difference kind of horror instead of survival horror First person More like P.T or Outlast then Resident Evil Will things found in past games even be in this game...I highly doubt it. After RE5, RE6 and now this it's clear Capcom doesn't get it...or they don't care.
People should give this game a chance when it comes out instead of jumping into conclusions and jumping into assumptions. Plus, don't forget there is a reboot coming out for RE2
Once again gtfo u idiot.
ive said it again in previous post ...RE 7 is even more alien(and mediocre) than RE4,5,6... imo they try to appeal to a completely different audience alienating completely the original RE fans...at the start may have some hyped/curiosity sales ..but a sequel or even this game will be a total flop, as its already a bad copy of PT/Outlast cutting every relation from any RE succesful formula.... if i had to choose this abomination or a RE6/5/same-type-sequel, i would pick Re5/6/same sequel anytime
I agree with @Austin All you do is bitch about games. Now onto the article; How do you even know this is a representation of the final product. It's a teaser gameplay, same as P.T. and nobody especially you know how that game was going to end up since it was never like previous Silent Hill gameplay. So quit your bitching.
It's just funny how no one cared about Silent Hills being in first person but people lose their minds with RE being first person
@Foxtrot I agree with you, it seems more catered to VR then an actual Resident Evil game. However, I am willing to give it a chance.
It's the best RE game I've played in years. It doesn't seem like RE because it doesn't have the terrible voice acting that plagues the series. Really atmospheric and very unnerving. That was what I thought about the original when I first played it too. I only ever really enjoyed the original game in the series, but I'm interested in this.
You guys slinging insults at Foxtrot need to GTFO. This is a forum full of opinions. Opinions differ from one person to the next. When Crapcom said they know what fans of RE want and are going back to the series roots, I wanted to believe them. This demo is a sad reminder that Capcom is flexible enough to keep their heads up their asses for a very long time. This is nothing like the survival horror that made the series great, and the game is a sequel to the crappy RE games they said they were going to get away from. Crapcom Lied. And ripped of PT.
No, Capcom didn't get it WITH Resident Evil 4 and 5, and RE4 to an extent, because that is when the series really began to change. But go on and complain. Business as usual.
Survival horror has nothing to do with perspective. Just because its an fps then its automatically isnt SH? Doesnt work that way. Cap already confirmed combat and limited ammo, and said combat is more akin to RE1 which is more situational.
Everyone with doubts needs to read this article. Now. http://www.ign.com/articles... #4 should make most fans happy. Furthermore, why do people keep comparing this to the P.T. demo? P.T. didn't create the first-person horror genre (neither did Outlast for that matter). You guys are basically flipping out over a tech demo that has nothing to do with the final product. Wait until we see the actual game before throwing a tantrum. From a technical standpoint, the franchise had to evolve again somehow. As much as we all love the classic RE games, going back to the fixed camera angles and and tank controls isn't practical anymore. We've also become desensitized to zombies. That's not to say there won't be any in RE7, but I like the "fewer but more meaningful enemies" approach.
Guys, hating games 6-12 months in advance is just what Foxtrot does, no matter how little information he has to go on. He's like a meteorologist who predicts rain every day, then crows about it when it finally happens. OT - This series stopped being "Resident Evil" with RE4 and needed to reinvent itself. I love the demo, so does everyone else I know, and we've all been playing RE since day one.
all your disagrees prove Resident Evil is dead. People now want this first person BS. MIGHT AS WELL CALL IT A DIFFERENT GAME! Why call it Resident Evil anymore? They're riding on the coattails of P.T. and Outlast to cater to the bonehead P.T. masses that just can't give that demo up. Well here it is now, you can finally STFU. It only took a well known franchise's demise to make it happen.
You can actually feel the horror theme a lot in this new teaser/demo compared to the old titles. Having limited vision like in real life VS playing on a flat screen, the immersion is so intense I think some won't be able to play it! I'm really impressed with what I saw and after playing RE5 & 6, I prefer this one over those titles with just the short demo I saw.
Sounds like you'd enjoy Outlast then, since this game seems like it's really trying hard to copy what people are loving these days.
I would rather play a full version of the demo than to have a game like Resident Evil 6 or 5 (The Call of Duty of Resident Evils)
Exactly. Thank you.
No joke. "Resident Evil" doesn't mean what it used to anyway, so I'm very happy to see this series reinvent itself.
I've already preached reasons on every duplicate article that pops up on this matter, this is more Resi Evil than 4, 5 & 6 put together, I didn't fear the enemies in those games, the enemies feared me. BIG problem isn't it? this new approach is closer to feeling as helpless as I did in the original three games, and heck even Silent Hill! this is a welcome approach, one that will hopefully bury the blemish that 5 & 6 left on a once iconic series. Where were all you Resi 5 & 6 defenders when the games were getting roasted?
4 was good, 5 and 6 were meh. But as for it being more Resi Evil, it's more likely trying hard to be Outlast and P.T. which got a lot of praise from the gaming community compared to past Resi Evil games.
The doom and gloom feeling came from the original Resident Evil games amigo, not these new games, horror was around way before those games came about! gameplay style is more Condemned Criminal Origins, Axe gave that away swiftly, but from what I've played.. I liked, I liked a lot! much more in common with the classics than the recent Resident Evil games since 2005 have ever been.
Another article like this...enough already, we get it you are afraid of change when the changes are absolutely positive. It's going back to the horror roots like we wanted, it's getting the old light puzzle elements back, the only thing that's really different is that it will be in first person and that just makes the horror aspect better. It's not tank controls like RE1-3 and it's not the action that people didn't like in 4-6. Give it a chance or do you WANT another RE6?
I would love another RE6! :D
It's OK for a series to reinvent itself as long as it isn't a product of focus testing 12 year Olds , soccer moms, and frat guys.
Yawn...these articles need to stop getting approved.
Well...Resident Evil 4,5,6 weren't Resident Evil either.
THANK YOU! Someone with sense
Enough with these opinion pieces give the game a chance it's Resident Evil 4 all over again people couldn't accept change back then they can't now and I bet this game will succeed just as good as RE4 did Resident Evil 7 will sell a lot.
Worthless article. Not even a mention that RE7 will work with the PSVR, which will completely change the experience of the game. When I played the demo, I didn't think of it as a first-person shooter.. I thought about what I was seeing was going to feel like when I'm seeing it wearing the PSVR.
Day 1 for me.. people will cry about anything nowadays without even knowing that full specifics of the actual full game :3
The formula for RE changed with the release of 4. The series went too action orientated and took away the survival horror the original 3 games created. 1-3 played one way, 4-6 played another. Might be logical thinking 7-9 also play differently. At least they are changing the formula unlike other developers.
Its too soon to jump to any conclusions but if the final product arrives and it has no guns I would be supremely pissed off. That's what RE is all about, the tension of surviving and shooting zombies/monsters. I think the final game will be quite different then this demo, or at least I hope.
It's already confirmed to have guns, herbs, inventory and all that stuff.
Not many played Gun Survivor see...
And Resident Evil 4 wasn't "Resident evil" either but it was a cool, slick, third person shooter where the main character had a cool jacket and said badass movie hero cliche oneliners..so it was ok.
I think RE has changed with 4,5,6 and Revalation 1,2 however, Revalation 1 came the closest to 0, 1, 2, 3. As I stated before Resident Evil 7 is a change and I am going to take a chance if the game is good
People want survival horror. you get it and complain about a demo that is not the full game. just a show and tell. For me I pre ordered the game already.
Im just gonna copy paste what i posted on the other article about Re7 I agree that Re7 Demo doesn't look like Resident Evil, but the final game will still be focusing on survival horror, zombies and puzzles. I believe that horror genre is actually very tricky to develope for. The less u add actually makes it more effective. Just jook at Dead Space which keeps its formula since the first game, but the more they add into the game, just make it less effective and less horror. Horror genre is the ONLY exception of improving the game will make it better, so i congrats Capcom having the balls to change RE7, even though Umbrella Corps looks like piece of shit,
It feels like its horror without the survival aspect to it. Like walking through a haunted house except with puzzles. Based on the demo you can't fight back at all, there's cryptic puzzles and weird unseen occurrences, and whats the most jarring is RE7 is the first game in the series to introduce supernatural elements to its formula. Previously everything could be explained through a virus or science and DNA, but now we got ghosts and goblins coming out of the woodwork. People saying this isn't RE are fully correct in that statement, not because of the FPS aspect, not because of the lack of fighting back, but for the addition of supernatural elements. It feels like Capcom is just trying to copy what Silent Hills set out to do with its presentation and puzzle solving.
Do u read any news the games teaser isint part of the full game so we don't know if it has supernatural things.
I'm talking about the ghost girl popping up twice, the mannequins, and the magically changing notes.
the demo was good... but resident evil?? where are the zombies? the gun? the green herbs? umbrella? every resi-esque things??
Wait for the full game because all of that is in it :3
Resident Evil 6 was a 'Resident Evil' game. And it was absolutely awful.
didn't feel anything like a resident evil game. felt more like silent hill. i was hoping capcom wasn't going this route with the series. glad to hear it is just a prolouge.
Yeah, Its P.T.!
And many say RE4,5 and 6 aren't Resident Evil, and that RE1,2,3 are Resident Evil - Your point, author? Move on and stop clinging to mediocre nostalgia.
I find it funny how people say resident evil 7 isn't resident evil. While 4,5 6, revelations 1 and 2 are resident evil. The formula got changed before to match the gen of the ps2. Now it's been changed again to match this day and age of true horrors. I thought resident was a load of crap after 4 (4 would've been a decent game even if it wasn't titled resident evil). But after that the franchise was on a downhill spiral. I'd rather this first person horror over the crap caps was pumping out.
So, are PC owner going to get the try this demo ?
