Mikami: “I won’t play Resi 5″

Friday, 28th November 2008 18:07 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Speaking in the latest issue of the Official PS Mag, Res Evil originator Shinji Mikami’s admitted that he’s unlikely to play the game’s fifth instalment.

“I probably won’t play it,” he said. “I won’t like it, because it’s not going to be the game I would have made.

“It’ll just cause me stress if I play it. I think it could be fun for gamers to play it, but not for someone who has developed Resident Evil games.

“If I see anything in Resident Evil 5 that isn’t done well, I’ll be angry.”

Do not make him angry.

    Im more interested in the new Mikami Suda project than I am about RE5, which is pretty much a known quantity at this point.

    Mikami is a legend. Can’t say I blame him for not wanting to play it, as the series is very close to his heart.

    Not the latest issue, fellas!Ccouple of months back actually :)

    Made me a bit sad when I saw the story spreading round the nets. Did no-one read the interview at the time? :( Took me *ages* to organise the thing.

    I know I could be crucified for this but I don’t like RE4.

    But I recognise why people did like it and why it’s clever, but you can pretty much forget RE5 for.

    Resi’s not the game it used to be. I don’t mean it’s not good any more, it’s just… not the same. I kinda miss the old-style Resi. If they were going to do the Resi 4 style ‘actiony’ game then I wish they’d also continued to do the more explorey puzzley sort of game as well.

    That’s typical Japanese.
    He said “I probably won’t play it …” not “I won’t play it …”.
    So guess what: He will play it!

    … and so will I. Always loved the RE-Series especially RE4. Even liked the cheesy RE movies with Milla.

    I will play it eventually. After RE4 I can’t miss it, really, it’s just a matter of how long it takes for me to get it.
