I've been hearing there is a lot of forced stealth segments in the game, please tell me this isn't the case.

If it's true, all my hype will deflate instantly. :(

Okay, I don't recall anyone who had the game mentioning that..not a one..outside of the obvious intro stealth section if you have weapons how can they force you into stealth?

You are not forced to doing stealth, but by doing stealth you save ammunition and the enemies can't see you :)

Not exactly the glowing review I was expecting, gotta admit it dampened my excitement just a little.
Thanks for the Review, mohd.

I've heard someone says that, not on this forum.

Developers can find ways to force stealth even if you have weapons. Like introducing some enemies that can't be killed, so you must sneak past them. I'm willing to look past the segments in the prologue, but if the game has too many of that, then it's disappointing.

I don't care much about graphics and I'm kinda glad game won't let you headshot every living being you'll see, so it's looks cool for me. Too bad you can't play on hard difficulty first time..

I couldn't resist reading your review - thanks. From what you say it sounds like the game needs a patch to finish it properly - would it be better to wait until Tuesday for a patch if there is one..? The stuff about invisible walls blocking bullets is awful, and also the fact that RE6 has better gameplay (god I hope not!). Textures and frame rate has me really worried as I'm playing on 360 - screen tearing has been mentioned in other forums.

If anything your review has reminded me to keep expectations in check. I don't think anything can top RE4 for pure fun in gunplay, but I was hoping this could get close.

Btw, how is the pacing, the flow of the game? Mikami usually gets this right.

When I played it for the first hour, I was annoyed, but then I got used to it. The crosshair when equipping a pistol/handgun lied to me for sometimes (like when I aimed at the enemy's head, my bullets didn't hit at all).
