Why Don't You Watch 20 Minutes of Leon Gameplay from Resident Evil 6

Roughly 20 minutes of Leon storyline gameplay from Resident Evil 6 has found its way into the wild today that I'm fairly certain was part of the E3 2012 Capcom presentation (other appointments and a terrible que process kept me from attending while I was at the convention).
Two things strike me most about this footage. The first is how Resident Evil-y a lot of it looks. Dark passages being explored, jump scares; the atmosphere is certainly there and that's a big plus for me. Second, there are a lot of CGI cutscenes this time around. And I'm not just talking about between sections. Move down a hall...cutscene, go to open a door...cutscene, move a piece of wood....cutscene. Pulling the player out of the game for a cutscene is sometimes bad enough when it happens every so often, but here I fear that it's threatening to ruin the atmosphere entirely.
Watch the footage below and let me know what you think.
