Mad World & Resident Evil 5 - which are you most excited for?



Ah hype, it can help and also ruin a game. RE5 and Mad World have both been hyped so much that anything less than amazing is going to disappoint most people. Some reviews that are out on RE5 have been a little critical of the game for straying too much from the suspense that Resident Evil games are known for and focusing a lot on action, even more so than Resident Evil 4.

Mad World on the other hand hasn't really been criticized at all and that in itself kinda scares me, since no game is going to be perfect. Potential is something that this game has an advantage over Resident Evil 5 in my opinion. For me, I know which game I'll be playing this week.....

If you are a owner of a Wii and a Xbox 360 or PS3, which game are you more excited for?

mad world i don't even own ps3 x360 and never will, resident evil 5 is going backward for me it has OLD controls i don't see that as next gen or new just a gamecube copy....even capcom themselves have been talking rubbish about the controls things like restrictive controls add tension NO THAT'S OBSOLETE CONTROLS ARE NO GOOD COMPARED TO Wii witch is what he was really referring to and trying to brush it under the carpet... i don't see how res evil 5 with gamecube controls is going forward wen comparing to wii a wii version with a slight graphics downgrade but a huge gameplay upgrade is what i would spend my money on.....

Yes, I tend to agree with you guys. If Resident Evil 5 had Wii controls, then the game probably would be more enjoyable(nah there is no doubt that it would be). Mad World's main draw is the gore and the controls that let you make the gore happen on screen. The Wii shows that control interface means a lot in the end.

Being an RE fan I can tell you that most of us want to play RE5 mainly because we want to know what happened to Jill Valentine and if she or Wesker die at the end of the game. But once that information is out there, I doubt any die-hard fan would want to play it. Because RE5 is an action game not a survival-horror game. It will be a hit with a lot of gamers, though. In regards to Madworld, it needs to succeed or else ppl will claim the Wii has no hardcore user base. It's like IGN said at one time, where are the Nintendo gamers? How come they're not supporting games like No More Heroes and other similar games that target core gamers? They need to support MadWorld.

Strong Third Party efforts that have some kind of advertising do well on the Wii. Resident Evil 4, Umbrella Chronicles, Call of Duty:World at War have all done extremely well (World at War is just under 1 million sold world wide on Wii). No More Heroes didn't have any ad campaign in the USA but it still sold pretty good (almost 300k). People buy Nintendo games because they usually already know that it's going to be a great game. Also with all the PS2/PSP ports in 2007 it's no wonder people are shy to make a hardcore game on the Wii with full funding and support. People are also shy to buy these games because the question of quality.

Now with Mad World we're seeing ads, we're seeing effort and we're seeing a hardcore Mature rated game that seems to be so over the top that people are going to take notice and buy it. I see strong sales for Mad World, it will probably be a slow burner like Resident Evil 4 continues to be for the Wii.

I cant go back to gamepad and play resident evil 5 its a great game but after RE4 and wii controls...
Madworld is a new ip and everybody needs some fresh air not just sequels.
BTW No More Heroes is my my favorite game on Wii (after Zelda) got shitty graphic but awesome gameplay/plot/characters.
