Reading the reviews so far confirms my fears on Resident Evil 6. When I first saw the first look of gameplay, I was completely turned off by how it looked more like a third-person action game. I then got back into the hype though when they mentioned multiple campaigns, and the announced Agent Hunt mode (similar to L4D versus mode ). But when I tried the public demo, I got turned off yet again thanks to the horrible camera angle and controls.
I'm not all that surprised with the reviews. Why can't Capcom just give us a survival-horror Resident Evil title? Why evolve the series to the point that it's unrecognizable anymore?
I'll still give this game a chance though, playing the game with a friend should be entertaining enough. You never know, it might turn out to be a great game to me, but I've been wrong before.
If you know any more reviews that need to be on the list, feel free to hit the comments.
