GameSpot - Resident Evil 6 Review

GameSpot - Resident Evil 6's messy mix of annoying quick-time events and constant set pieces makes it a poor caricature of modern-day action games.

That's about what i'd give it.

I have had this game since 23rd September.

realiks1783d ago

But it was very anticipated and I expected at least 8.
This year FIFA got only 8.

But this wasn't on my wish list.
I except more from Assassins Creed 3 and FarCry 3.

Hatsune-Miku1783d ago

These games should be released for the vita because I'd buy it first day. They need to put the resident evil collection which is from resident evil 1 to resident evil 6 on the ps vita .

The only way to save this series is to re-boot it and make it survival horror again.

Well there you have it folks. I guess gamers weren't moaning for nothing.

Eurogamer's review (6/10):

"The game represents a tremendous amount of effort and investment and, for those impressed by such things, Resident Evil 6 may delight. But all the effort in the world won't make up for a lack of vision. This game is blind to imagination and focus. Capcom's uncertainty about the series' identity post-Mikami (and post-Uncharted) is hardcoded into its structure: four campaigns offering different, flawed expressions of that potential. And the inevitable price for this wavering is a lack of coherence. Resident Evil 6 is an unwieldy tribute to the series' past, an uneven expression of its present and an unwelcome indication of its future."

Dark times indeed for the franchise.

The game sucked. I'm glad someone finally pointed it out. I wanted to like Resident Evil 6, I played all 6 campaigns of the two demo's (One public the other dragons dogma promotion) but it's a flawed game in general, as an action game AND a horror game. If only it played as good as it looks...

Information Minister1783d ago

I'm surprised they had the guts to be honest with this game and speak their minds about it. Didn't think gamespot had it in them to resist publisher/developer pressure. Considering their track record and all...

Personally, I would give RE6 a 5 or a 6/10 at best. The game feels uninspired, and after 2 hours I still couldn't get around the controls.

AsimLeonheart1783d ago

LOL!!! HAHAHA!! Where are the defenders of the game now??? Where are the guys who said it is a day one purchase?? Come on guys speak something! Are you okay?? Are you breathing?? LOL!
Well fun aside, this game really seemed heading for a disaster. I hope it will prove to be a good wake up call for CAPCOM. I hope they abandon the dreams of their very own COD money printing machine and make games for the gamers. Just try to excel at making your games CAPCOM and the success and money will follow. You do not need to run after the money by moulding the franchise into whatever genre is popular.

lociefer1783d ago

and after all this ud think crapcom would take notice, but nooooooo, i hope it sells like shiet so they can get their epiphany

JoySticksFTW1783d ago

I'll probably get it when it hits the bargain bin.

I know, I know...

It's just that the RE and MGS franchises are must-haves for me.

FF was once part of that trio of must-haves too, but you know how the last few games turned out.

Hatsune-Miku1783d ago

I can't wait to see the ratings for zombie u because resident evil 6 is just a mediocre game that shouldn't score less than a 7 out of 10. Resident evil 6 looks better than zombie u in a lot of areas but zombie u might turn out to be better than resident evil 6 when its released in its final form.

crxss1783d ago

it's just one reviewer, even though it's probably true.

what's really sad is that i'm always going to get a #'d RE game as long as i have the console for it. i'll leave it to everyone else to make a statement by not purchasing it and forcing Capcom to stop putting out a mediocre product and make RE better.

PopRocks3591783d ago (Edited 1783d ago )


So you WANT a game to be awful and fail...

You're honestly the worst kind of fanboy in existence. I may like and defend a lot of Nintendo products, but I don't post shit about hoping for Sony and Microsoft consoles/games to fizzle and die. Honestly, the people agreeing with you need a massive reality check.

On topic, I played the demo for RE6 and really did not enjoy it at all. More reviews for this have been coming out and many of them have been six out of ten or lower. I'm not buying this game. Not my thing.

knowyourstuff1782d ago

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.

gta28001782d ago

4.5 seems like a generous score for this sorry excuse of a Resident Evil.

abzdine1782d ago (Edited 1782d ago )

so pity you base your future purchase on review scores. Go check the game demo out or rent it and stop caring that much about what others are thinking in your place.

RE6 is shit, the demo, the trailers and different info all tend to go the same way. you liked the demo go buy it, you hated it like me you dont buy it. it's as simple as this.

knowyourstuff : "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"

The answer is in what you said. You are nothing but a troll. you judge reviews as troll just because they are below your own expectation. As i said up, go play the demo you'll know for yourself. Stop being media whores they fart you smell.

jony_dols1782d ago

The gameplay clip at the end made me chuckle.

wow , is it that baaad ?!

Copcom ruined up the series ....

after the gamecube remake no resident evil really came good.

TongkatAli1783d ago (Edited 1783d ago )

You meant after RE0. The demo was horrible and tried to be gears of war which kinda made me vomit from the inside. Gears is awesome, but it was definitely a WTF moment seeing Chris sprint, lol.

osamaq1783d ago

from the video review " series has lost its way "

neogeo1783d ago

Thats what they get. capcom said survival horror does not sell. Now lets see how this crap sells.

OhMyGandhi1783d ago (Edited 1783d ago )

yeah, without a doubt.

People WATCHED videos of the game in action, they saw the michael bay set pieces, yet so many still said that this game was returning to it's survival-horror roots.
People are absolutely idiotic.

The series is dead.
don't reboot it.

Capcom needs to make a new survival horror IP,
and study up on what made "Dead Space" a nearly perfect modern horror title that actually -frightened- the player.

No FanS Land1782d ago

HA! I knew it! I said back in spring, when capcom was hyping RE6, saying it will be the best game, I wrote : Can I had a big fat LOL to this news?. Never thought I'd be spot on though!

abzdine1782d ago (Edited 1782d ago )

they westernized the franchise too much and just made it look like an Army of Two or any other pure action game.
RE lost its soul with RE4 even though it was a great game it lost what made RE one of the best game franchises of all time, and that is puzzling, stress when you only have 1 bullet left and your health is in danger..

They will not get one cent of my money and i hope most of the RE fans wont do it as well so they learn that we also have a word to say because they make the games for us !

i'm SO SO SO much looking forward to that game Until Dawn by Sony, man it looks promising !!

negative1782d ago

Well I'm glad I actually played the demo and didn't simply read this review and the trolling that follows.

I'll pick this up soon.

jony_dols1782d ago

'Capcom said survival horror does not sell.'

The only reason RE1 Remake & RE0 didn't sell too well is because Capcom made another stupid move by keeping them exclusive to the Gamecube; a console that only had an install base of 20 mill compared to the PS2's 150 million.

Resident evil 2 topped 6 million sales on the PS1 alone, & that's not factoring in the N64 & PC sales.

Survival horror does sell, GeOW clones grows stale fast.

Yeah, this was brought up in Neogaf a couple of days ago. Didn't believe GS would have the balls to do it, but I commend them. If a game sucks, then it sucks...regardless of how big the franchise is.

Btw, for anyone who wants to see all the reviews so far

DTOID gave it a 3 ROFL!

Imalwaysright1783d ago

So true. Too many games got a free pass this gen because of the weight of name on the cover. FF13 got more than 20 9+/10 scores wich is laughable considering how the game was recieved by the fans.

grailly1783d ago

I just hope that this would happen more often, because now the reviews seem inconsistent as there are many bad game with good scores

BuLLDoG9091783d ago (Edited 1783d ago )

Next its COD's turn, this could happen to black ops 2

Archmagel1783d ago

I can only agree and bubble you up once, but I would sit here all day and do it if I could.

I hated the gameplay of FF13 so, so much, but if they just had a movie of the game, I would watch it. Good story, but I would rather someone shoot me in the face than play it again.

CDzNutts1782d ago

I've always loved Resident Evil. But once RE5 came out with babysitting a sh*tty AI (Sheva) I skipped it.

Then I played the demo for RE6....and it was clear to me the series is d-e-a-d.

Those reviews you just posted sound pretty accurate with the POS demo I played.

On to the next...
