I remember checking his review about the game before. I didnt fully watch it but he seemed to really like re4r, particularly compared to re3r which he hated massively, and he still finds separate ways just " fine " ? I think it's one of the best dlcs in the series, without it, ı wouldnt even buy the game in the 1st place to play it. I even think ada and wesker have some of the best character developments in the series here with this dlc. It even ties to re5 and re6 better than re4-assignment ada-separate ways do.Here's the review from Under the Mayo.
Did you play and finish RE8?Now that the dust has settled on RE and Capcom redeemed themselves after the travesty that was RE8, I am now focusing my attention on Silent Hill. Although I must say that Konami has been ironically rather silent about those projects since the showcase they presented way last year.
Personally I really enjoyed it. I'm not the biggest fan of the Ethan Winters story (although it had its moments) but the gameplay was great. I thought the castle mansion was good too, as it had been a while since we had a mansion. I liked the fact that it was inspired by Resident Evil 4, it goes well with the RE4 remake in terms of gameplay. My only regret is that I didn't get to play it originally in 3rd person mode, but I think it is a good sign that they added it eventually. Also I wasn't really a fan of the Shadows of Rose DLC, but at least that ends the Winters story. I'm looking forward to RE9 hopefully returning to more familiar characters and story. Bring back Wesker!Yes, I did. Back in the summer of 2021, I bought the game for the PS4. I watched the DLC online in late 2022 as for the first time in ages, I had no motivation to be arsed playing something so dumb. I thought it was an insulting Silent Hill knock off.
And while the base game wasn't completely unenjoyable, it didn't feel like a real RE game. At least not like older games, like from before they became weird. But the bosses and situations were just so outlandish, that I don't know how anyone would want to treat it seriously. I would say it was a good game in terms of offering something decent to play for a few days. The voice acting was great. But it was otherwise just pretty silly in terms of the plot and setting.
I also got vibes they cut and paste too many ideas from RE4, like the inclusion of a cult leader, the castle, the merchant, and so on. A lot of it just felt like a repeat. Almost everything feels the same as 4, and when it's been so long since RE4 was released in general, it made it feel like Capcom got desperate with their creativity.
Like when the lycans ambush Ethan for example, Capcom was just copying the primary village section in 4, where the villagers chase Leon around until the church bell sounds off. So that's just laziness to have the same things occurring.
