Fixed cam is great. Every other game has adjustable cams, why make it like everything else? I agree it adds to the tension. Love the throwback! Most of you sounds like a bunch of entitled crybabies.
Because it's control system is a total piece of shit.
As soon as the main monster starts chasing you the controls of the character become virtually impossible on PC, with K&M.
Not only do you have to guess what direction you're going, when running towards the camera, when after dying several times you finally get that right, the camera suddenly switches to another position, and your controls switch out from under your fingers.
What was D suddenly becomes W, just because the damn camera switched positions,This then becomes a veritable sequence of right angled turns, and unpredictable camera jumps changing the controls directions without warning, and if I make a single mistake, and you're back to square one.,
Square one is quitting the game for good, and playing something designed to use K&M.
This isn't new, it's what makes RE1 to 3, an awful experience with K&M, and what has made me quit playing all of those games as well.
Even RE4 suffers from poorly ported controls designed for controller, and making zero adjustments for PC gamers that don't use a controller. RE2 Remake was the first RE game done right on PC, and even RE1 Remastered showed the fixed camera controls could be done better for K&M if an effort was made.
It says something when, I'm a fan of the RE1 to 3 classic zombie stories (but not 4+ parasite stories, even though fixed camera was dropped), yet only ever watched others playing the classic games due to awful K&M controls, and the fixed camera that forced them, until RE2/3 Remakes showed a 3rd person view could do the stories justice, without losing the survival horror feels.
It's not rocket science, either switch the camera, or the controls, but don't switch both at the same damn time.
It leads to people like me, giving up on the game, because console controls don't work on K&M, without any adjustments.
Fix the damn control system Bloober Team, so that when camera moves my keys stay the same during the stupid, and Bullshit chase sequence,and whatever you do don't send me back to the start of the chase, when I inevitably get tripped up by your absolutely ridiculous controls jumping around, crossed with this asinine camera fixation also jumping around..
