What do you think, better or worse than Silent Hill?

Interesting, it's all going to depend on how the controls work though.

AWESOME!!! This is going right to the top of my Most Wanted list... I'm a huge Resident Evil fan.

Here's a clip of the N-Gage version, naturally I think we can assume the graphics will be a little more polished for the iPhone:

Not a huge RE fan, but it could be pretty fun.

Awesome! Will probably buy on the name alone

No DPad - iPhone and iPod Touch gaming. Who says gamers need a dpad?

Well look on the bright side... at least Capcom have the decency to give us a full Resi style game, rather than a Resi Duck Hunt *wink Konami wink*

We don't know if this will be a full game or what yet, being on the iPhone with touch controls you can probably expect it to not play like the console games.

Well this quote from the PocketGamer article suggests it'll be a proper Resi style game based on the Resi4 control scheme:

"You'll be able to view the action over Leon's shoulder as he attempts to break through the zombie infested airport, aiming by sliding your finger around the screen and moving with a virtual D-pad"

If it's a port of the N-Gage version (which my cousin owns) then it'll play very much like Resi4... minus the flashy graphics of course.
