Resident Evil 4 saw a departure from the series standard survival horror roots, to a more action-oriented style of play. Resident Evil 5 took the action aspect and ran with it, removing the horror almost entirely.
Resident Evil 6 – not to be confused with the recently revealed action-heavy Resident Evil : Operation Raccoon City – will be different. That’s according to According to Capcom producer Masachika Kawata anyway.
â€œThe series will see a complete renovation with the next entry on every level,â€ he said.
â€œBut we can’t forget about all the previous entries that have led to the creation of many possibilities for the franchise. I can’t say if we’re going to make [Resident Evil 6] survival horror or a shooter, but I can say that it’ll be totally different.â€
I’m glad. I enjoyed Resident Evil 5, but only because I played it co-op with a friend. If I had to play that alone, with that mindless AI goon, I’d have given up half way out of frustration. Though many see Resident Evil 4 as the pinnacle of the series – and for many reasons, it is – I’d like to see something closer to the magic of Resident Evil 2, my favourite Resi entry.
