What the heck… is going on here? I’m not sure if it’s the low brightness or odd camera angles, but I’m not super-impressed with this clip of Resident Evil 6‘s “Agent Hunt” gameplay. I guess I never imagined the Resident Evil series as an action-driven multiplayer game.
I’m going to stay positive and not pass final judgment until the game is released, but the bipedal melee combat in this video just looks… clunky and repetitive. I do like the idea of transforming into a death-dealing frilled-neck lizard, but I’m concerned the novelty would wear off quickly.
While I feel the refinements in the fourth and fifth games were done well, this just seems to be taking Resident Evil in a direction it doesn’t need to go. That said, I thought co-op in Resident Evil 5 was a mistake, but enjoyed the hell out of it — twice — when I finally played it, so I’m happy to be proven wrong.
