Good score
doogiebear  +   718d ago
The score doesn't fit the review. Actually listen to what they say. It seems like it would be no big deal if one chose miss out on this one.

I agree, I got the vibe that its a great action game. Has some tense moments that are probably scarier than most games out today(which isn't hard at all) but isn't very old school Resident evily.
Looks fun though, I enjoyed the demo enough to warrant a purchase.
Bimkoblerutso  +   717d ago
I...kinda got that impression as well. Not that I think the game is incapable of being good, but the ENTIRE video review was stuff that they disliked about the game.

They said:
- the gameplay was "antiquated,"
- the writing "wasn't particularly good,"
- the graphics were "showing their age"
- the non-shooting segments "weren't handled well"
- the item management is "a dinosaur"

I mean, forgive me for being a little suspicious, but 8.8 is a score you give to a game that had a couple of minor problems here or there...
ConstipatedGorilla  +   717d ago
Judging from the review, it looks to be worth a play-through to me personally. Maybe not a 10, but it should be a good time.
SilentNegotiator  +   717d ago
No surprise that GT would give a highscore to some PEWPEWPEW even if it's full of issues.
Blacklash93  +   717d ago
GT does that sometimes, usually with big games. Lots of negatigve comments about many aspects of a game throughout a review then BAM, a score around 9. They've been like this for the Assassin's Creed games, for instance.

As much I'd rather not believe it, they seem like they're being paid off for a high score or they're too afraid of a backlash for giving a highly anticipated AAA game a low score.

I can't believe the mixed reviews for this game. Some reviewers giving 9's and 8's, other troll sites I don't trust like Destructoid and Gamespot giving it 3 and 4.5 out of 10. Then there's the pseudo intellectual sites like Eurogamer where they have the journalistic integrity of your usual rag tabloid trash magazine. I really don't know what to believe now - that's how objective gaming press is.

Uh.. were we listening to the same review?

"Yet measured against its contemporaries, it remains near the top of its class... deserves to be played by any fan of the action genre."
jeseth  +   716d ago
The scores for this game are all over the place. Unless user reviews come back with good feedback I'll wait 'til Amazon has it for cheap.

Haven't seen a game with reviews this scattered in a while
Kaneda  +   717d ago
Goog score.. Yeah! big Resident Evil advertising on their site...
Biohazard8860  +   717d ago
they got payed off by capcom.
geddesmond  +   717d ago
I'm honestly really glad to see reviewers eat this game up. I called it weeks ago. After all the crap Capcom pulled this is all they deserve. Now look at them, there biggest franchises is on the brink of destruction. All thats left to confirm is sales number and given know body I know is getting it and they all got RE5 I expect this game to sell less than a mil on both platforms first week combined.
DarkHeroZX  +   716d ago
The reviews are split on this game, sofar the metascore looks to sit around 72.

Gamestop trolls on Resident evil? They gave Resident evil 4 a 9.6 and resident evil 5 an 8.5

its a good game but not everyone is going to like it.
i myself enjoy it but i have some problems with it and understand the people who and will hate it.
but dont let the demo cloud your decision and dont be so closed minded.
the mercenary mode is decent and there isn't anything new in it.
there isn't any sense of exploration and the skill system suck my.....it just sucks.
depending on people the game will be from 7.5 to 9, not everyone is going to like but i think its a great game but i hope capcom listen to there fans next time.
keep the co-op in extra mode like lost in nightmare or something or the mercenary.
focus on 1 character.
less scripted moment.
wild open stages and more exploration
have most of the enemies use melee and keep the one with guns limited.
have more meaningful QTE like from resident evil 4,god hand,bayonetta.
meaningful friendly A.I that are not scapegoat.
real horror.
improved net-code.
bring weapon shop and management back{resident evil 4}
Chitown71291  +   717d ago
Im sorry this has nothing to do with your comment, but I wish Gametrailers would go back to their old website..........this new one sucks in comparison
iMaim  +   718d ago
where'd the video go?
was it removed? i thought the embargo was lifted.
banjadude  +   717d ago
If you go to the website, and press the download button, a quicktime window will show up instead, and you can watch it then.

That's how I watched it, before the embargo was on.
abzdine  +   717d ago
GT gives 8.8 to all games they review.
all types of journalism are corrupt, i tried the demo and it's not worth more than 1/10..

Capcom is a major publisher in Japan and websites like GT live with exclusivity reveals and things like that from their partners and Capcom is one of them.
If they review this game in an objective way they will probably break the deal.

This game is broken gameplay is retarded zombies with guns lmao.. where is the horror part ?

Thank god you don't review games professionally. I'd avoid whatever site you worked for like the plague.
abzdine  +   717d ago
a shitty game deserve shitty review scores, regardless of its name. It's as simple as this.

You know what, from now i can assure you GT will give around 9 to the next RE, because they give scores just by looking at the game's name.

"This game is broken gameplay is retarded zombies with guns lmao"

Now imagine a statement like that in an IGN or Gamespot review. That site would lose a little credibility, wouldn't it?
csreynolds  +   717d ago
You can't go around saying all types of journalism are corrupt. Tarring everyone with the same brush makes you a moron.

That said, I wouldn't have given RE6 an 8.8 either. Personally, I feel the series has lost its way...
Bloodraid  +   716d ago
I cannot comprehend why or how people take game reviews as seriously as they do. It's nothing more than an individual, or group of individuals who assign a number to a game based on how enjoyable they found it.

Even if they're being paid to give games a good score, how does it affect you? Are you forced to run out and buy the game? Are your politicians passing legislation because of it? Does it have any bearing on your life in the slightest? No? Then quit whining like a damned child.

Crying about something like this is just as pathetic as the people who complain about movie critics who dislike highly rated movies. It's childish, and ridiculous.

When you have more than 6 entries in a franchise, it's bound to go downhill eventually..

Final fantasy says hi. 4,6,7,8,9, 10 and 12 were absolutely amazing(I didn't played the first three). It didn't suck till 13! While RE is starting to suck from the fifth game.
there is no excuse for This crap.

This score reminds of when you tell a fat chick she is cute cause for a minute you felt bad for her. We love RE because we have history with it but they lost their way.. This game is not an 8.8 and only fanboys will stand up for it. Fat chicks are ugly and this game sucks. The truth hurts.
dark-hollow  +   717d ago
More like that once a beautiful, smart and funny girl, she was the best thing to happen To you, but lately let herself go and started cheating on you to other men, even though you were loyal to her for ages, and even the men she's trying to seduce doesn't even care about her because they Already have this filthy bimbo who whore herself out for $20 on Friday nights.

CanadianTurtle  +   717d ago
I feel like I'm the only human being on this earth who sees that this game has too many issues to be given an 8.8/10. Doesn't anyone realize how bad the gameplay is?

Very basic third person shooting with horrendous controls for getting into cover and leaning. Just because the game's title is a brand name like Resident Evil and the graphics look good, still doesn't qualify it as a good game.

There is no horror really. The game can be described as "wasted potential." Great work capcom!
dragonrage00  +   716d ago
Are you insane? Everyone thinks this is a 6/10 at best. This is the worst reviewed RE game ever. How are you the only one?
rCrysis  +   717d ago
The thing I'm mad about is that reviewers are either grading the game on what it is now or grading it on what it should be.

Yes I agree that RE6 has gone way past its root but reviewers are need to make a point on what they're actually grading the game on. This is why we have the scores all over the place.
turgore  +   717d ago
8.8 I don't really believe it.
It has some of the worst shooting of modern games,its missing the resident evil charm, its clumsy, story is mediocre and graphics are poop (just look at those shadows and textures)
oldfriend86  +   717d ago
It's Gametrailers, it's expected that their review doesn't fit with the score.

Look at their review of Peace Walker. Nothing but bad points about the game and it still got 9.1 somehow.
doogiebear  +   716d ago
Peace Walker was the best MGS ever (except the bosses were not as "cool"). So hush your mouth, mister!
oldfriend86  +   716d ago
No, I'm talking about Gametrailers' review of Peace Walker, not my opinion. I thought it was great. Gametrailers basically trash talked it the entire 10 minute review and their score of 9.1 did not reflect what they were saying.

Geez, N4G and Metal Gear man.
Bathyj  +   717d ago
I dont know how anyone could spent money on this with games like Dishonoured, Assassins Creed and Far Cry just around the corner.

And thats if I ever stop playing borderlands.
Megaton  +   717d ago
GameTrailers is a great place to visit if you're interested in seeing who's paying for good reviews these days.
KwietStorm  +   717d ago
lol so that's what Keyser was whining about. The site he works for is [suspiciously] the only well known review so far with a good score, so obviously, according to him, this shows that game reviews and journalism has no coherence, and is all over the place with regards to credible objectivism. Funny.as.hell. Weren't they also one of the only places that ignored all the flaws in the first Assassin's Creed, and gave it a high score? Didn't their score for the first Uncharted not even average out properly? lol Man.. Capcom was one of my favorite devs growing up, and I tried to defend them when everyone was tossing flaming bags of feces at their HQ, but I just can't do it in good faith. They really let me down with a number of their franchises, and to see them procedurally destroy what was once the king of a genre they were single handedly responsible for over the years..its just depressing. But I just don't care anymore. They showed their hand a long time ago, and I'm glad I cashed out when I did.

That's funny people are counting the low scores but the reviews that liked it means Capcoms paying people off. Silly view...quite a conundrum for developers to get praised for innovation and slammed for not keeping a title the way it was almost 15 years ago. Damned if you do damned if you don't...same for DmC.

TheDivine  +   717d ago
I cant wait il grab this 2mro on the way to work. All the people complaining this isnt RE and you want the classic RE back they just went back to the roots. Its called RE Revelations, a mix of the old and new while staying true to the series. My second fav RE ever. Unless you supported that game and bought it your the problem. If it doesnt sell we wont get a sequel point blank. If it sells gangbusters they will see theres a market for that still. RE6 looks amazing to me but the one thing i dislike already (before ive even bought it) is that its 4 seperate campaigns. It shouldve been one like Revelations. Leons shouldve been the main part with the others used here and there to break up the gameplay and tie the story together. Oh well im sure il still enjoy the hell out of it, its a massive game and well worth the money imo.
medziarz  +   716d ago
big media site, big publisher, big franchise, big money, 9/10;
expect exact same score for BO2, AC3 as well as H4,
wouldn't be surprised if the Forza spin-off and MoH get it too.
