I was so pumped for this game, and then I played it...yeh. Total disappoint. I understand that capcom wants to appeal to a more broad audience with being a more action game, but it just isn't working. The game is seriously just annoying to play. They need to go back to good ideas like resident evil 4. I don't know what they are planning for the next game in the series, but they really should listen to the fans and make it more of a horror game.

If Capcom would have changed the character's names, changed the title, marketed this game as the first game in the beginning of it's own franchise and didn't associate this at all with Resident Evil, I believe it could have been a smash hit. However, calling this a Resident Evil game makes it a major disappointment because it's an even larger departure from the series than Resident Evil 5. It's no longer Survival Horror and is instead of the "stupidly annoying action" genre. Don't get me wrong, overall it's a very entertaining game, but it could have been so much more (or less) than what it ultimately ended up being.
