i am sorry you lost me at chapter 10 to 13.


the game goes fully third person shooter.

the game has nothing to do with survival horror at all.

There is a point in the 11th chapter where I thought it was getting a bit too RE5-ish, but generally, I had no problem with the later chapters. I'm not a big fan of the urban environments though, at least, not as much as the earlier ones.

I wouldn't say that. few chapters go full-on action, but most of the chapters had a focus on horror.
I'm surprised you didn't like Ch.10, one of my favorites.

nether any levels had any focus on horror the whole game just feels a fun challenging third person shooter.

the only thing horror i have seen are just easter eggs to movies not even the atmosphere is scary.

I agree it's not a survivor horror game. It's RE4 facelift with less ammo.

Really? The beginning of Ch.5 is straight up horror. Regardless of whether you were personally scared or not. So is the entirety of Ch.7, and some other chapters that escape me at the moment.

I mean, I wasn't really scared either, then again, I wasn't scared of RE2 and RE3 too. But I can still recognize they are Survival Horror.

So... Survival Horror?
The reason people call RE4 an Action Horror because it empowered the player. TEW gives you much less ammo and enemies that are resilient and challenging.

I can say the same thing for most classic RE games (which people hail as exemplary Survival Horror games).
I revisited RE2 a few weeks ago, and honestly the game wasn't scary at all (Aside from THAT licker jump scare) and I finished the game with lots of bullets that didn't get any use.

Point is, even if you aren't personally scared, you can still recognize that the game is going for Horror. A Horror movie that fails to scare you is still a horror movie.

fails to scare me?

the game Hardly tries to scare me thats my biggest issue with game.

Classic RE are outdated they were scary in the 90s but atleast those games actually TRY to scare you.

even i find RE4 is more scarier with it's very few scary moments.

TEW on other hand just feels third person shooter dressed up as horror game and it drops it's disguise when you reach the last few levels.

Stuff like tough enemies, aggressive atmosphere, and low resources are all attempts to create horror and tension.
For example, the invisible enemies in chapter 5 are a clear attempt at horror, so yes, the game does try to scare.
