Hopefully a real scary adventure

Honestly didn't bother to buy RE5 cause it was crap, they kinda removed the zombie/scare stuff and seemed more like a house of the dead than an RE game. RE4 wasn't bad but still felt like more of an arcade than a survivor horror and barely had any scares.

As an RE fan since the RE2 days, I expect a good product that's worth buying this time.

Still got faith in Capcom :-)

PS: they said it's gonna be a port, but I'm glad it's coming to pc, better a port than nothing.

Don't Agree

RE5 was fucking shit .
If you want a good coop game, play left4dead or cod5 or something. THIS IS RESIDENT EVIL!!!

If people really crave cooperative gameplay, CAPCOM should make RE0 co-op... That shit was scary, puzzly and just a massive mind fuck with Bec's ass gettin in the way if you know what i mean
