what do you think of the direction this series is taking?

I personal do not like it. RE4 is awesome even today. It had a unique shooting mechanic thats very well implemented and suited the action well. What we have here is a very cinematic but average at best TPS.

I don't want to write a 5/10 review for a game I grew up loving. But here I will summarize how I feel after finishing 4 campaigns and played over 6 hours of mp.

PROs:
-very good graphics
-length sp
-high production values
-very cinematic
-mp fun

CONs:
-degenerating TPS gunplay (feels worse than RE5)
-some missions repeat (padding imo)
-mercs need overhaul or some form of major improvement
-VERY POORLY WRITTEN NARATIVE for such a long game
-too many badly allocated QTEs
-laughable driving sequences
-still crappy inventory systems (RE4's was so good)

As you can see, some of the cons are really serious. At first I was shocked by the 4.5 gamespot gave, but after I did leon campaign on professional, I can clearly see his frustrations.

Very dissapointed long time fan here. Sadly got to say, this game is not better than the movies. i guess I'm just venting becuase I know I will have to wait many years to see RE7 and there's no guarantee Capcom will address this issues. Sometimes i don't even thank they care.

It should slow its descent. It's about to crash!

-par for the course as technology improves
-only if the game is good, so...
-nothing to do with RE per se and if the game still sucks, it matters not
-I have a DVD player
-wholly subjective

Yea, I see your point. But if I don't write anything nice, you'd think I was trolling. Get what I am saying?

I like the new mechanics, but hate the God awful camera angle. If they could blend in the atmosphere from classic RE games with the new RE game's mechanics, it would awesome.

The graphics look worse than 5's and the game isn't as smooth either.

It's not. I thought it was just the demo, but after playing the retail version, it was apparent that it wasn't.
