  1. *Scratches Head* Well, what to say about this? I’d complain generically that it “doesn’t look/feel like survival horror anymore” but what would the point be? It’s gotten further and further from survival horror for two straight (virtually identical-playing) games, now. And that hasn’t been a bad thing. It’s got all the Resident Evil earmarks, but I’ll be curious to see how any real feeling of atmosphere or jeopardy is maintained with what looks to be an increased emphasis on combat over survival. Still, it’s a first trailer and it’s early. It should make for a hopefully very telling E3 demo, though.
