I was really excited to buy this game, since I loved the first five games (yes, even RE5). I downloaded the RE6 demo the first day it came out. I hated, hated, hated, hated it. I kept hoping for some of the magic of the earlier games to show itself, but it never happened. Just constant running and shooting. Very boring. RE should never have turned into a "war" game. If I want to play a war game, I'll buy Call of Duty.
Unless the actual game is completely different from the demo, I have no intention of buying this. I appreciate Capcom trying trying to continually re-invent the series (RE4 is my personal favorite), but this is a failure, IMO.
How is a DEMO going to show you the real game in any way? YOu just get a feel for what it's like. You barely play any of it. I did the same thing with Assassin's Creed. I tried the demo and thought the game sucked. Thought the controls were clunky and thought the game felt boring. But I recently got the first one at gamestop for 10 bucks, and now i've got #1, 2, Brotherhood, getting Revelations sooon and can't wait for Assassin's Creed III lol. Needed to actually PLAY the game to learn the controls and shit.
Point is even with a demo, you still don't know what a game's like.
I really disliked the demo...BUT... I decided to take a chance on the game anyways and guess what ? I made the right choice. I love this game now. the cut scenes are top notch entertainment in the first 5 minutes of the game and every minute there after. unfortunately the demo is a bad example to make up peoples minds.
@MARY: I had the opposite affect. I thought the demo sucked, but that it was just a sample. Surely the stages would be, as they've always been, mostly non-linear, with back tracking. Surely they upped the pace for the demo. Boy was I disappointed. Pure regret.
Just bought this game now that it was $19.99 I take back my original comment and find the (whole) game to be pretty good. The demo was terrible, though. I'm hoping the next installment will be closer to the style of RE4 (my favorite) than RE5 or 6.
