For all of you out there that didn’t like the old style of Resident Evil, and love action games, welcome to the new Resident Evil! I must say I’m loving the look, I’m loving the style and after seeing a few in game videos I’m really looking forward to playing this game.
They’ve taken a step away from the horror, and single player seems to be a thing of the past. This time you’re seeing the story from a different kind of angle, from that of an Umbrella special unit. The time and place being Raccoon City during same time that Resident Evil 2 took place. For all of you out there that loved Hunk and his mini game from Resident Evil 2, keep your fingers crossed for a guest appearance from our favorite Umbrella operative.
It seems that the unit we’re following is after Leon Kennedy the hero from both Resident Evil 2 and 4. This probably means that we will also see Claire Redfield somewhere in the story, at least I hope so. There are SO many things that I want to see now that they’ve taken a step back to the first outbreak and Raccoon City, the places we can revisit, the original zombies walking around and filling up the streets trying to eat your brains out.
Er Story Trailer
From what we’ve seen in the game play videos, it seems to have changed quite a lot, we still have the 3d person look. But the way it plays has changed from the slower movement and stop to aim kind of game play to: action, and a lot of it. This time Umbrella faces the governments own special forces that tries to stop them from completing their mission (whatever that may be). So this means that there will be humans shooting back at you this time around, and at the same time, zombies are walking around the streets of the conflict. Awesome setting for an action game if you ask me!
This also gives a lot to ask for when it comes to multiplayer and co-op, we can finally be up to 4 people playing alongside each other to finish the missions; this is a step further from Resident Evil 5. Will there be multiplayer where you can either be on the governments’ side or Umbrellas? So that you can fight it out on the zombie filled streets of Raccoon city, now with objectives and deathmatch modes like seen in games like Gear of War? I hope this game will bring this and maybe even more, come on Capcom! Show us what you can do!
