Gamespot's ECTS impressions have been superlative so far! Cheers, GS writers!
Woo! YES! The dream comes true! I can't wait.At the start of the game, none of the players are actually able to attack each other, but as we each started to take hits from zombies it became clear that the virus infecting Raccoon City was getting into our bloodstream. A microscope-style indicator in the lower right corner of the screen gave us an idea of just how infected our blood was, and as the percentage rating neared 100 our character first began to limp, eventually could do nothing but crawl along the ground, and then died.
Nothing surprising in that you might think, but seconds later we were back in the game--as an undead version of our former character. Unsurprisingly, our only goal at this point was to track down more fortunate players and do our best to ruin their day. The gameplay wasn't radically different in terms of character control, although one nice touch we noticed is that because zombies can't open doors they just have to hit them until they can take no more punishment and swing open.

Instead of a taunt button, they should something for shouting various zombie moans and such. :D Do you like they'll let you eat brains?
Also very cool about the game:
Looks like with this and Biohazard 4 the series is finally evolving into something new. Took enough time. :wink:Our first job was to barricade the doors to the outside by moving large pieces of furniture, but it was only a matter of time before the undead found a way in and started causing problems.
Personally, though THIS NEWS is enough to make my head explode, I'M SO EXCITED! I WANT IT NOW! ROX!

P.S. Shinyaku Seiken Densetsu rocks city blocks! Totally awesome and remade in many ways you wouldn't expect. Lovely music remixes too.
