I want to get Spec-Ops just because of the loading screens, but I'll not pay Â£40 for another Cover-based shooter
I tried the Resident Evil 6 demo, and I feel conflicted.
The Leon Section was very dull, with the only scare being a lame jump scare. Also, nothing fucking happened. Pacing was waaay off.
The Chris section was very 3rd person shooter for my liking, and not in a good way.
Surprisingly, I found the Jake section to be the best. It had good pacing, and felt the most like Resi 4.
The Combat has been vastly improved, and not at all lessened by the ability to shoot and aim. Melee no longer has you fumbling around waiting for enemies to walk into your knife while you slash their knees, but the context sensitive actions like kicks to the face or headstomps are there.
The shooting feels a little unsatisfactory due to there being little sense of impact when you shoot an enemy. This rather irritates me as I loved the little differences in animation that occurred in the prior games, such as them collapsing when you shoot them in the knee.
You cannot pause the game, the inventory/start menus are integrated into the HUD.
Enemy design is really fucking good this time round. The way enemies transform on the fly into a bunch of crazy creatures (sprouting wings/huge fucking hulk arms) is pretty cool, keeps combat interesting rather than shooting static enemies. They are not very smart though, it must be said.
Leon seems pretty dumb this time round, and he didn't have any wisecracks.
I'm willing to waive the disappointments of the game since it still has a year of development.
