Forums - Gaming Discussion - Resident Evil: Attracting CoD fans 'the dream,' says Capcom. 'Action route makes sense'

Then it's indeed a good thing they still release things like Revelation for fans of the old formula.

Gotta please 'em all!

Resident Evil should be Resident Evil, not another shooter.

All I know is that the trailer looked epic as hell, and I am thoroughly stoked for this game. And yes, I have played the Revelations demo and am excited for it as well. It is possible to enjoy both styles of gameplay :P



Could I trouble you for some maple syrup to go with the plate of roffles you just served up?

Yes, the trailer was surprisingly good



idc how much RE has become like COD i just hope it doesnt have a forced AI partner to babysit if you choose to play solo, i dont think it be to hard to make slight tweaks to the campaign structure to allow a mainly single player character experience like RE4 was

Its such a shame. Why couldn't capcom have made a new up for this 3rd person action design?
Here's the problem. Rather than create a new up and have the same game mechanics as resi 4 5 and 6, they change the resident evil series forever. So fans of resident evil survival horror are thrown by the wayside. No matter what anyone tries to say resident evil from 4 onwards is not at all a survival horror game. Its a 3rd person action shooter. Capcom could have had 2 franchises. But chose to kill 1 and put a different game under the first ones name.

Its a shame. Because Alan wake was built to be an action thriller. It has much much better controls than resi 4 and 5, much better visuals and hugely better music and storytelling. I actually first played resi 5 after Alan wake, and boy is the difference night and day. Resi 5 felt like controlling an 18 wheel truck with an rc remote. Yet even though Alan wake is infinitely better than resident action 5, it will never sell as well because of the name.

Maybe that's why they killed resident evil in favour of resident action. Because they knew the name would carry it. Look at final fantasy.

All in all I would much rather have had capcom make a different series for their action stuff. So the fans of old resi could still have their survival horror game. Is that so hard to be mad about?

Action is always fun. I remember playing the GC and Wii versions of Resident Evil. Lots of action, and it was lots of fun! Left 4 Dead would be another example I think, but you still need to keep the basic RE formula./

This, Valve showed us with L4D you can make an action packed zombie game very good 

This and that. it will bee easyer for me to play for one. i couldn't play any before 4, and the controls on 4 and 5 were imo, not worth the time it took to beat the game in under 2hr's.

respected nor and agreed. although i like the change, having options for gameplay mechanic's would be ideal.
