New details emerge - and it looks like a major overhaul for Resi fourth time around
New details of Resident Evil 4 reveal that, incredibly, the game is entirely free of zombies. Instead, according to sources in Japan, you'll be facing "villagers". Rather than having to fend off dumb, shambling members of the undead, these people have smarts, so it should mean that the game's enemies will be far more interesting in their AI and behaviour. Plus, they come armed for the fight and can throw their weapons of choice, which includes sickles and axes.
As the game progresses, the enemies increase in awareness and intelligence. While, early on, you'll be able to lock on to a bad guy and simply pump lead into him, later in the game he'll keep his distance. And, if you decide to give chase, he just might scarper around the corner where six of his mates are waiting with bow guns - which is a real example from the game in action. To add insult to injury, in the latter stages the screen will be pitch black and you'll only be able to see the townsfolk by moonlight.
