Tried the demo at the weekend, it plays alright but this is now an all out shooter, which is great if that's what you're after.
The gun customisation is just a complicated gimmick really, and doesn't add anything new it just gives an impression that the game is deeper than it really is, and the graphics have lost that sharpness and detail that the previous games had.
It sounds like i'm really down on it but as a shooter it seems fine.
I dunno, i've played the game both solo and co-op and i still think it gives more jumps in that single demo than i got throughout the whole of Resident Evil 5. Even playing through the demo the second time on my own i was bricking it at the points where i knew they were gonna jump out. 5.1 surround sound headphones might help with that though. For me Dead Space played through headphones with the lights off is a completely different experience and the only way to play.
Its never gonna recreate the feeling of the original, that was a one off, we've been there and done it. This looks like another great entry to the franchise to me and i can't wait for next week to come around.

I didn't enjoy the demo an I really wanted to. It started off on a good note but as soon as I came across the waves of shooting AI, I began to lose intrest very rapidly. I know EA said that co-op won't ruin your SP experience but parts like that drill just gave off the impression that this was built for co-op and watered down for SP.
I'll probably pick it up somewhere down the line when it's less than for £25 and preowned.
