Resident Evil 5 was something of a departure for the RE series.

While the hugely popular 4th instalment brought action to the fore, stylishly combining controlled gunplay with the series' trademark creepiness, the most recent offering focused perhaps a little too much on the action. With way too many quicktime events and action set-pieces diluting the quality of the overall experience, it left a bitter taste in the mouth of many of the series' traditionalists. All of which was understandable given the prevalence of games such as Call of Duty, Killzone, Uncharted, Gears of War et al.

But if the new trailer released this week by Capcom for Resident Evil 6 is anything to go by, it looks like we're in for a welcome return to the series' schlocky, camp, horror roots.

Check it out.

I cant see anything but a lady sucking off a giraffe-man in that logo :C It's worse than the Lisa Simpson Olympics 2012 one!

Looks...confused to me. They're trying to evoke fond memories of the series' roots whilst simultaneously moving even further towards the CoD style of gameplay, neither of which is something I'd really like to see in a new Resi game (emphasis on the 'new', there).

And visually it looks kinda underwhelming. At this stage I'm all in favour of giving Resi a bit of rest, until they've found someone who's got a bit of vision for the series again, frankly.

I've no problem with Resi 6 being a third person shooter as long as Capcom due a proper job with it, unlike Resi 5 which was sort of a half way house between a Resi game and a shooter.

I actually lost interest in the Resident Evil series after Code Veronica as 4 and 5 seemed to stray too far from what I liked about the series. What I'd love Capcom to do is release HD remakes of 1, 2 and 3. REmake on the Gamecube was superb and a similar job for 2 and 3 would go down a treat!

If this is an original thought by evilashchris, someone should write an article about it (referencing the original Olympics logo controversy) called "Have Capcom made the same logo mistake as the Olympic organisers?" and watch the hits roll in.

As long as it is humorously serious in tone. :)

MCV also seem to have picked up on it. Surely they don't read here?!

I love it. It's the rally game I've been waiting for since Rallisport Challenge 2 (and it's a lot more technical / satisfying than that!) ...
