    I had forgotten bout this one. It does look hilarious, but I have to agree that I need to see some reviews first. It has the potential to be awesome, but currently we have no idea.

    I pre-ordered straight away :)

    It's very much the same as the first but with a lot of improvements. Timed missions are still in place though which some people complain about, even though you aren't forced to do them.

    Will wait for a demo. A lot of Capcom's PC titles seem to make it out of QA with terrible PC controls (RE5, Lost Planet) and most review sites just copy-paste the console review and never even touch the PC version or play it using a 360 controller.

    I'm looking forward to hearing peoples thoughts as well. Loved the original on 360. I am hesitant about how they may have ported across the controls.

    I think most of "us all" don't own it yet since we are waiting for some TOG-reviews. Is this a hit or what Rasta?

    If you've played the first game then this one is the same sort of thing, but with more player development and your able to craft weapons. It looks nice too, it's got plenty of content and has co op as well so thats a bonus.

    It does look like a console port tho... For instance to change mouse sensitivity, the option says "Stick" sensitivity so definately talking console controller there... It did take me a little to get used to the control system at first, but it's definately playable and a lot of fun. Fortune city is huge and there's plenty to do...

    I'm really impressed with it, definitely one of the better Capcom ports. Controls are great, gameplay is much improved over the first and there's plenty of variety in weapons, costumes etc. Also runs smooth as silk for me, even in heavily populated areas.

    Only downside I've seen so far is no option to change controls in game. Not a problem for me since the default set up is exactly what I would use anyway. You can change controls through an .ini file though.

    Also Boxing Gloves + Bowie Knife = Awesome

    I'm not sure what the go is with "Terror is Reality", seems like the way to earn money to buy Zombex at 25000 a hit. Unfortunately they didnt use the Steam in friends way of joining peeps that you know. I've tried joining games or creating games with no luck. can anyone enlighten me on that plz.

    Apart from that..just for you Phred, like i said great game, huge..great gfx, controls are good compaired to RE5..lol..

    And...er...one more thing, there is some very tasty looking characters of the opposite sex..indeed, this is definately a great game for the twisted..also Chief, i just cant go past the spiked baseball bat atm. Have you found the catana yet, now thats killin zombies:twisted:...lol......

    Oh yeah..how do we all go finding each other to coop?
