I agree. The new camera in 4 and 5 was used to shoot things you could not see with the original angle, and to kill the enemies faster since they were tough.

I wouldn't classify RE4 and RE5 as action or FPS, no more than I would Survivor or Dead Aim...
RE4's camera was just a new thing for Capcom to try out, much like they have been trying new stuff for the past almost ten years, with the Outbreak series, Survivor series, Gaiden, etc, and I think the over-the-shoulder camera just happen to be very succesful and very popular.
I have spoken to people whose complaint(singular) about RE5 was that you couldn't move and shoot at the same time, I personally thought it was an idiotic complaint,and everyone on this forum should understand why, but those people go into RE5 thinking it is the Gears Of War or Halo competitor, and it is definaetly not.
NiteKrawler;40295 said:Well the over-the-shoulder cam isn't the only thing, as Dead Space had it and it was definitely survival horror. But there was definitely no lack of ammo, and the horror aspect was naught. Of course, none of the RE games have been very scary.
I agree that the run n gun complaints are just stupid. The people that want that option need to go back to Halo and Gears. They usually drain my IQ anyway.
NiteKrawler;40314 said:When I think survival horror, I think of being scared constantly and always being on edge. I was barely on edge at all with RE5 especially. I'm not saying it is a bad game at all, just that I don't feel that it is scary or survival horror-ish... And ammo might have well been infinite, because I never had to conserve it.
Spike991;40318 said:Well I guess it varies among different people, as I ran out of ammo plenty of times, and not because I was just constantly shooting either...
I think that I was on edge for RE4 like I was with RE1. I have heard people say that RE4 is a great game, but not a great RE game....well I think that it stays true to the story, the controls are the same, just a new camera, but I think it still qaulifies as Survival/Horror...
It has lost a few things, like now we have more enemies come out at us, and there are a few button commands, which actually come pretty natural, considering RE3 started with a dodging command, and this really isn't so much different.
NiteKrawler;40327 said:Yep. I'm not sure what RE4 and 5 are classified as, but until they are classified as action then I guess they are still survival horror. I guess what I have been trying to say is that, I found it harder to survive in the old ones.
