I like the sound of that. The first RE games were the best.

JellyJelly2697d ago

It doesn't look anything like the old RE games though. I'm really hyped about it and I hope it turns out to be as good as it looks. Just want to read some reviews first (GameInformers and Eurogamers mostly).

I saw a review on G4TV and I gotta say I was somewhat let down. I thought this game would have some gunplay, but it doesn't. It's all malee. Still going to play it and judge for myself though.

@DarkTower805 There are guns but it's not the main focus for killing zombies. The developers said this a few times. It actually makes sense because the game takes place on a resort island. Pretty sure you won't find a lot of guns there.

JellyJelly2697d ago

@DarkTower805 - Review or preview? I just looked but couldn't find it. Do you have a link?

I don't care so much about wether it has guns or not, I'll be getting that fix from BF3 regardless :)

DarkTower8052697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

Oh ok, didn't know that. When I see a game that I like, I stay away from most of the articles about it to avoid spoilers. Good to know though, thanks.

@jellyjelly, it was on Game Break on AOTS yesterday.

JellyJelly2697d ago

@DarkTower805 - I tend to do the same but in this case I want some confirmation on wether it's good or absolute crap. Seeing as how the developers track record is kind of shaky.
