    Now word of a PC version coming around, huh? Anyway, good news that they didn't change anythingso I can shoot black people so it's still realistic. Shooting whites in Africa... doh! :)

    Doesn't change the fact that it plays like a pig (well... the demo does anyway...)

    enjoyed the demo, but the controls felt stiff as. still looking forward to it an insane amount though.

    couldn't see the fuss when the racism "row" first broke out and i can't now either. black people in africa, who'd have thunk it?

    QFT, the whole thing was silly to start with, imagine someone would sue each time a game shows a white person in america / europe.

    What if it was set in the far east and all the bad guys were yellow (chinese, japanese) or green (philipine, malaysian), why is a situation like this never seen as racism?

    It would be more racist if they had set it in Africa and there were no black people IMO.

    good for them for not getting scared. It's not like they haven't had 4 other similar games with many, many white people.

    "The controls feel stiff" - Has never played an RE game.

    "You can't move and shoot" - Has never played an RE game.

    Seriously people, stop disliking a game for the reasons that make a game series what it is.

    Can't remember which developer said it but move and shoot is a westerner complaint. They were going to change it for RE5 to meet the demand, but I guess not. Move n shoot on mass groups is a movie stunt anyways. As for the "stiff" control, if they were any looser you might as well just play Craplo 3.

    Topic: People would complain if it took place in South Africa because of its' rough history.

    Oh wait, because I didn't.

    And said demo (before you even take control of Chris) warns you that it is not a final build......

    It is shameful there is no Wii version. The controls rocks for such games. The console has the best control for shooting games. Yes, it beats the mouse. For example, Check out Metroid Prime 3.
