The first North American review score popped up online today for the upcoming multiplatform title, Resident Evil 6
Not bad. Although early magazine reviews are usually high.
True, unless you have a troll magazine/website like Edge or Eurogamer which give bad reviews nitpicking games to no end just for hits. It doesn't even matter if the reviewer has nothing objectively bad to say about the game, just that their personal taste in games doesn't match up with whatever they're reviewing. Don't you love it when you see a game you love ie. your favourite fighting game or racing game, and the reviewer absolutely hates fighting or racing games in general and complains the game doesn't draw him in to like it enough? Or when reviewers are so incredibly jaded that they hate absolutely everything except Portal and quirky RPG's?
Final Fantasy XIII ^^
Should I buy the collector's edition (own PS3), or just the regular game? I have RE4 & 5, but want to try out the previous ones.
@knowyourstuff Uh, yeah. Isn't that the point of being a critic? Rating media based on how enjoyable it was to you? Not sure why you expect someone to give a game a high score just because you like it when it does absolutely nothing for them. @Commander_TK You'd be better off to just buy the base game. Anthology just includes voucher codes for the previous Resident Evil games. You'd be better off just buying 1-3 from the store for $18 rather than paying the extra $12 and being left with two games you already own (unless you want to give them to someone).
In that case, you could easily corrupt the score system by placing selected reviewers who has no interest in that particular game and it will always end up having a poor score. What you mentioned is too abstract and has barely any solid foundation for reviews. In that case even the outlandish 0 user reviews could be valid because what you said clearly applies to them as well.
a good critic does "nitpick." that's what i want them to do. so i know exactly what i'm getting. i got burned a lot early on in this generation cuz i trusted the reviews of these mainstream guys like ign, gametrailers, gamespot.
its not called being a troll, its called wanting hits. sick of the word troll
Dam you 9GAG...now every time I see the RE6 logo I see a giraffe man getting head :(
Damn YOU man! Now i see it! Lol
This will be a 7/10 or at most 7.5. RE series has lost its touch
holy cow, the capcom SHEEPS are gonna burn you XD .. run run run run
you do know that the plural of sheep is sheep, right? and why are the sheep if they like the series?
TheRealSpy the same reason people hate on COD just because some fans like it to a points a company doesn't seem to change anything. Dead space 1-2 are what RE games are suppose to be. But they see a bigger shooter market so they went after that. capcom overall are worst than any other publisher, while everyone is greedy capcom is greedy on a different level.
resident evil 5 got a 9 and look how that turned out i just cant trust capcom no more
maybe you should stop trusting the source of those reviews instead ...
so expect the game to receive scores from around 8-9 for this game.. I can deal with that..
I expect theyll be less than that actually judging by the demo. Expect alot of 6s and 7s.
Me too. The demo didn't impress me much.
I clicked on the review simply out of curiosity Honestly, it coulda been a 10 or a 2, its not gonna influence my decision to buy in the least From what ive seen on re6 and Capcoms history of delivering the goods its day 1 for me
By delivering the goods you mean half-assed products followed by DLC that should have been included on disc, which they won't do until the release of the Gold edition?
@Hoje0308 Read his comment again. Carefully. Now slow down, wipe the drool from the corner of your chin and read it again. Do you see where he says "its day 1 for me"? I believe that means he will be buying it on the day of its release. So when he says delivering the goods he means that what Capcom will be "delivering" will be a more than satisfactory product, or "the goods". Now run along and play with the traffic.
Old McGroin : Nicely said. I have to add one more thing. "day 1 for me" ..."FOR ME" Read that? Personal opinion. Yours doesn't matter to him, Hoje.
It's the two of you that need a lesson in reading comprehension armed with the ability to know the difference between stating an opinion and making a claim. The part where he says that the game is a day one purchase because of his own observations is not what I take issue with. Like everyone, he's entitled to his opinion and I won't argue that point. What I have a problem with is the claim that Capcom has a history of "delivering the goods". This is put forth as a factual statement and I disagree. Capcom continually releases titles that are not complete and then delivers paid DLC for the next six months, at which point you can expect the announcement of some kind of "Gold" or special edition that contains assets that either were, or should have been on disc. Unfortunately, this has become a common practice in the industry and Capcom is one of the worst offenders. The fact that you are either unable or unwilling to understand what was written is plain English says more about you than I ever could. I'd ask you to go play in traffic, but you're probably required to wear a helmet and an orange vest at all times.
@Hoje You got something wrong here capcom does include the dlc on the disc you just have to pay to unlock it.
@ Hoje well said mate, you couldn't have said it any better, and great come back. bubbles for you.
As fun as this game looks and how interested I am in it's story, it's gameplay is clunky as all hell and whoever designed the controls should be fired. So I'll be passing on this. If PS+ gives it away for free I'll play it, otherwise it's a complete pass for me.
Do they? i havent downloaded the demo yet.. Damn man, u killed my hopes now lol
the Leon section is really good because it has a slower pace, so the controls work fine. But on the other 2 sections of the demo, which were basically 3rd person shooter segments, the controls were not as intuitive as i hoped. Which is weird because i though they had the controls for the action segments nailed with RE:Revelations. Still, there is no need to buy into all the hate going on here in N4G. Just download the demo and pass judgement. For me, like i said, the Leon part was good, the rest a bit clunky but not at all broken
@ TronEOL I thought the exact same. I played Chris and Leon's sections on the first day and thought the controls were a little clunky and that the camera was a little too close to your character. But I went back to it the next day and played all 3 characters sections and it really grew on me. You should give it another go, might surprise ya.
# TronEOL Man, you put the nail on the head. Agreed. I booted this demo up and was excited as it had all the elements of what might shape up to be a blockbuster of a game. And then I started playing it.... :-(
I played both demos and loved all 3character campaign experiences. Before anyone says i dont know anything about the series or its roots ive bought every game day one and ive loved each game for different reasons. Part 6 looks to be my fav next to part 2 and 4
It's kinda sad I thought of Resident Evil 5 when playing this....almost didn't bother finishing it. My character would randomly run in the opposite direction just because i changed direction. It takes 4 headshots to kill a zombie? And somehow they enter the matrix and can dodge your shots whenever they want....And I keep tripping over zombies, yet can't stomp them. The demo was clunky as hell and no horror element at all to it. lucky for capcom ill still give the game a chance, but based on the demo I'm not expecting a great resident evil game.
Not gonna buy it, I'm gonna wait for my super RE fanboy friend to buy it and I'll watch him play through some of it. Who knows, maybe I'll convert.
90 ? are they f...... kidding me ? that pile of shit ? H.O.R.R.I.B.L.E controls A.W.F.U.L camera A.W.F.U.L music and sound in general..seriously they should fire the guy who made those supposed "intense"action music..it remind like i was playing an atari game No horror No survival Bullets and health everywhere You can complete a lvl without using a single bullet or knife by just smashing the r1 button aka kick this game has NOTHING to do with the biohazard franchise. i wonder how much capcom is paying these reviewers
Maybe the whole game is good.
*SPOILER* ... The story itself is So (...) Linear from what i have heard lately ! Its like ORC all over again sadly.
The story is so linear? You mean it moves from Conflict to Resolution in chronological order? It's like ORC all over again? What are you trying to say? I'd argue RE2's moved in the similar fashion as ORC's where you're experiencing a central plot through 2 perspectives. Both scenarios unfolded in a linear narrative. If you're using the word Linear to represent 1 dimensional storytelling, in which we move through the beginning, middle, and end in chronological order, then you may want to do a little more research since we're approaching this through a 4 perspective intertwined narrative. I mean yes, we will go through each scenario from beginning, middle, and end in a chronological order, but the plot as a whole with Ada giving an alternate perspective through the campaign with unique revelations and everyone ends up in the same setting by the conclusion. I don't feel like this is linear in the sense you are trying to use it.
What is the meaning of the acronyms H.O.R.R.I.B.L.E. and A.W.F.U.L? If you actually played the demo you would jave noticed that your bullets run out and you can't keep melee'ing enemies because you lose energy. I experienced camera situations and clunky responses too, but it wasn't awful. Leon's mission was better IMO. RE5 visually looked better and they need to improve the animations. Technology now allows you to have hit detection and he should bump enemies out the way while running. That straight line sprint looks retarded.
You my friend, have given an accurate run-down of the exact issues which plague the demo in it's entirety. Thank you.
It's a really old build. The final build which was shown off at TGS which also Magazines have had since the game went gold almost 2 months ago have had significant improvements to its controls and camera, I went into playing the demo think it would suck. To be quite honest I was surprised. It plays a hell of a lot better than I imagined especially Leon's portion, all the character campaigns had there hiccups but they played well enough. A hell of alot more responsive than RE5's copy and past RE4 iceberg controls. In short, and in my humble opinion the hate this game is getting is completely unwarranted. I can't wait for October 3rd. Haters on N4G can ignore it all together. because they weren't gonna play it to begin with.
I dont think it deserves all the hate, but I do hope the camera and animation issues are taken care of. I will stand behind the fact that RE5 visually looked better. The environment doesnt feel alive in this game. It felt better in RE5. Did you notice how bad the tennis court looked in Leon's mission when you were trapped in the hallway? OMG that looked like last gen. Seeing what Sony Santa Monica and Kojima have done with this gen technology they dont have an excuse for this kind of work. Especially when they've shown they can do better
At least it will definitely be better than heavenly sword.
"its stories - while a little too goofy to really take seriously - are nonetheless fascinating" Great game or not, I'm having trouble not shaking my head at this sentence. Is he saying the story so chessy it's good? Is the story so off the wall I'll be "fascinated?"
Fascinated by how off the wall it will be. That statement kind of made me scratch my head too.
Anyone who has been with the Resi series since '96 will tell you the story to EVERY Resi game is overblown B-movie tripe. It's why I love it!
Also, Spoiler Alert: You kill the final boss in Resident Evil 6 using an RPG.
Yeah, he contradicted himself, but crazily I understand what he was trying to say. I think he was captivated by just how ludicrous the story is...but even then, that's nothing new to the Resident Evil series. Anyone remember Code Veronica's plot? Brother with dual personalities, hints at incestuous love, Steve, and everything else involved. I sure do and as crazy as it was, I loved it. If anyone saw any Resident Evil story as not "a little too goofy" they're kidding themselves, but that was always part of the charm. I mean a guy who wanted a mansion full of puzzles and traps that housed a bio-organic facility...I mean c'mon, at some point you just have to roll with it.
i believe what i saw and what i feel not what they want me to believe and i will say it again and again . those crapcom guys dont get the message until now , we want a ( SURVIVAL HORROR PUZZLE GAME ) we dont hate to be ( some ) action but we want agood horror action situation like - resident evil 3 - when the situation need to be in a horror action , we want agood and fair resident evil NOT cod resident evil or army of two resident evil or gears of war resident evil , damn crapcom leave this game alone you are not worthy to work on agood and big game called ( RESIDENT EVIL ), damn just look at dead space 1 , 2 and learn if you dont get the message , shinji mikami where are you ?!!
Exactly this. I couldn't get enough of Resident Evil 3 and 4 (never got a chance to play the first two). RE3 was downright terrifying. Nothing you did stopped Nemesis. Never been more scared of an enemy/boss in my life. While upping the action, RE4 was still scary because you didn't know what was coming (constantly changing environments and enemies) and you always felt a bit under-prepared and under-powered at each encounter. Same holds true for Dead Space. Resident Evil 5 on the other hand left you far too strong, and the atmosphere was gone (too many levels in broad daylight). If Capcom had a brain they'd have peppered those daytime levels with moments that had you say: "F***, I have to go through that shadowy spot?" Resident Evil 6 is (at least partially) back in an urban setting. It's dark and it's chaotic. The question is will we feel threatened? Will we freak out and occasionally run away at times? That's what Resident Evil used to be. I hope that comes back.
Yep, i urge you to play the first RE it has pants pissing moments because you cant shoot the enemies all the time because you would had get run out of bullets pretty fast, you must sharpen your knife skills there (Not so much in RE2). The Nemesis fighst are really tense, in RE4 facing the Desgarradors were really tense too.
You are right , but im still gonna buy it .. 1-im bored xD. 2-my friend will buy it too so im gonna play with him 3-it have few new things in the gameplay 4-the game is very long that will make me play it atleast a week lol I played worst games and i think i can handle the disappointment in this game , i think it will be a normal game
Do yourself a favour, fans of the series a favour and the industry in general a favour. Get Borderlands 2 instead.
i hear the name of borderlands 2 a lot , but i never cared for it i dunno why , even when i want to watch a video for it something happen that prevent me or make me forget , lol ... i love all resident evil games , only raccoon city which was normal to me and boring for my brothers , i will give it a chance because of that , a lots of people said resident evil 5 was sucks but i loved it even though it didn't have horror in it at all , that's won't stop me to enjoy a good game , im just hoping it's not like the demo , it had many many problems , it's almost unplayable for a lots of people but i can see from the gameplay some potential to have fun in it .. i know that you guys here all gonna disagree , i just want to have fun , it's the first game will release next month and im bored as hell...
Well, lets hope the PC controls are a bit (lot) tighter and the visuals are clearer. The demo was cool, but wandering around in the dark, through the HDR blur until you collide with a zombie and are forced to mash the karate button isnt particularly intuitive.
Karate button. Made me LoL. Unlimited crane kicks in RE6 FTW!
I'm sure it will do better than the shity movie. Zombies that can breathe underwater. Bs. Thank God wesker was president of the US or else the movie would have been a complete bust.
LOL, man...that was pretty good.
Zombie are dead. They don't breathe. I haven't seen the movie so I don't know what you're talking about, but zombies being under water wouldn't slow them down.
Resident Evil movie zombies are not undead zombies, they are virus zombies. Anyway, zombies eat people yet they are dead. Explain that?
"Explain that?" That may be difficult since zombies arent real! And thats exactly why in the movies they can make the zombies do whatever they can come up with. In fact EVERY movie director, author or game developer can make them do whatever they want since, again, they are NOT REAL! But i will try to explain why they eat ppl. Presumably, whatever is affecting the corpses, in this case a virus, has altered the dna, and recreated the spark which gives life. Not enough to ressurect, only to reanimate, meaning it has life but is not alive. The spark begins by arcing between the multitude of motor synapses in the brain. But since the spark is rudamentary it only functions on a baser level: instincts. Instincts passed on through millions of years of evolution take over. Instincts such as the need to EAT. Cmon ppl, its ZomBIOLOGY 101 =)
Really can't imagine Re6 being a 9/10, that would make it almost as good as Re4.
why dont people realize the demp was an old build?
Do people not remember how great RE5 scored? Things rarely live up to how we remember them, the earlier RE games were good for the time, but I much prefer the new ones, especially with the better camera and better controls overall. I would expect this game to score really well, so I'm not surprised by the score in the least.
I had a blast with Resident Evil 5. Aside from the forced co-op, I thought the game was excellent and didn't deserve all of its hate. Was very disappointed that 6 has the same forced co-op, but that even so, the rest of the game got worse in almost every way from RE5.
Factually though, it does come down to what YOU really think of the game, we can rely on the critics with similar tastes in gaming genres, but no two people can agree on everything without one disagreeing. I for one, can not wait to play this game- I'm a fan of RE but not entirely because of its tension and thrilling/ survival horror elements, but because of the action elements as Im a big fan of the TPS genre, I'm not a nostalgic and 'old'/ 'original' fan like most people who have recently commented above and it is clear I'm going against the current. Not only that but I have also followed the story from the very beginning and cannot wait what is to be uncovered in the this next chapter of the series :D please feel free to waist your time clicking the disagree button :)
Based on the demo, i give this game 4 out of 10 meh's
