Demo impression

#1 Edited by Unreal_dro (277 posts) -

Its really amazing. my early pick for goty 09.

The controls take a bit getting used to (thanks Gears2) cause you cant move and aim just like re4. but after 5 mins its feels great. the graphics are amazing, the open desert looks really good, reminds me a bit of Fallout3. and the new motions blur looks really good. havent tried co-op yet.

theres ALOT more enemies on screen now compared to 4. and since you cant pause the action during switching items/weapons the gameplay is alot more hectic.

I just checked the Japanese store and I can't find it. But I'll check again.

How do you feel about it? Is it just RE 4 with a fresh coat of paint or do you think they've added some good new elements?

It feels alot more faster paced and smooth.
a bit like gears2. the shoot em in the face run up combo is alot more effective since you have alot more moves than just a kick (uper cut, punch etc)

the partner AI is good, but she seems to be more concerned with healing you than shooting the enemies.

Like in Dead Space?

Oh snap. This is going to be difficult. But I can't wait for this game.

Can anyone confirm if you can use a 48-hour Gold Account to access the demo? I don't have any 1-months left and really don't want to go out and buy one just to play this.

hmmm. i don't like having a partner, it ruins the alone fear thing that was going on in all the others. but who knows. as long as they don't abandon the puzzle elements from the first 3, and make it feel frantic and like you barely surviving attacks then im down with it.

it sounds like theyve snagged some ideas from Dead Space, like not allowing you to pause to access the menu, that was a huge yet very subtle feature in Dead Space that really kept the immersion high.

Theres alot of zombies on the screen at the same time, even with 2 players its damn hard, and you have to constantly revive / heal / pick up each other when a horde comes after you (sorta like left 4 dead)
