I know this is only a pre-order and it will probably go down a little more but with the Amazon pre order promise its worth looking at. Probably gonna be one of the best games of 2009!
Also avaliable for the same price at HMV but I think amazon are better for delivering on the day.
Recipient of just about every game of the year award going in 2005, Resident 4 wasnt just one of the best games of the last generation it was also one of the boldest reinventions of a well established franchise ever seen. The only problem was how Capcom were ever going to top it and since almost nothing has been revealed about the game so far thats still a difficult question to answer.
Some facts are known about the game though, in that it uses the same basic gameplay and controls as Resident Evil 4, as well as some other elements from the very first Resident Evil. The latter isnt surprising as a different team are working on this new game, many of whom worked on the very first game from back on the PSone.
The trailer shows a desert, possibly Middle Eastern, setting with what appears to be fast moving zombies in pursuit of what may, or may not, be Chris Redfield. What is known is that temperature will play an important role in the game, with characters having to cool down if they get too sweaty even getting heatstroke or passing out from overheating. The game will also feature online elements for the first time in a core Resident Evil game, although again their exact nature remains a mystery. In fact the only thing thats known for certain about the game is that with a track record this good its almost certainly going to be worth the wait finding out about.
