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. (PS3, Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360) 4.5/10

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.

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.

Ouch!
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...

R.I.P Resident Evil :(
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.
AsimLeonheart  +   753d 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.

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-Miku  +   753d 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.
crxss  +   753d 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.

@Hatsune-Miku

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.

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.
gta2800  +   753d ago
4.5 seems like a generous score for this sorry excuse of a Resident Evil.
abzdine  +   753d 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.

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.

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.

abzdine  +   753d 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 !

'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.

CDzNutts  +   753d 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.

Look at this!! This is the exact opposite of what RESIDENT EVIL STOOD FOR!

-Camera all over the place (still unhappy /w fixed camera in the originals are we?)
-Action game
-Not scary
-Actual game not challenging
-No survival element, feels like a chore
-QUicktime events
-Waiting for COOP AI in a RESIDENT EVIL GAME

Shoot me. The only thing that gives me solace is all the agrees that this game is complete garbage.. but people are still buying it....

RE1,2,3,0,& CV! Those were the days!

MY GOD. It's like the executives at Capcom are TROLLING US. It is like they are saying, "how bad can we make this game and still have these idiots buy it?"

For the love of gaming people.... save yourself some time and go play with one of these instead:

It will require more intelligence than playing RE6 and you'll probably have more fun with it too.

"RE1,2,3,0,& CV! Those were the days!"

Yes Yeahokchief but Where is the survival horror nowadays at all?

I loved early resi's and Silent Hill 2 is my favourite game ever but not any more we have nothing but dead space and although i enjoy it it's not as good for phsychological horror like res and SH (I also fear for the next Dead space as it could possibly be going to feel stale or will move over to more action as well. (I am hopefully very wrong)

We need a brave studio to give the fans what they want but I think it should be a new IP. of superb creeping horror.

Lets just let Silent Hill and Resi die a death now. Enough hope lost already :(
showtimefolks  +   753d ago
I was totally extending this and more. Capcom have become so blind by their desires of money that they are actually messing up once great franchises

I was reading the preview for lost planet 3 somewhere and it said that LP3 is more RE than RE6, and that's just sad.

Will buy this game when it's under $10 which at this rate will be soon

My fellow gamers if you want an actual great RE game please speak with your wallets, show capcom that they messed up and our money isn't growing on trees. If this game sells really well than its another sad day for gaming and capcom will make RE7 even more sucky an even more quick time events.

I had a lot of fun with Asura wrath and that was all quick time events but done right so it can work but not in a RE game. Heavy rain also did it ncely

Here is hopoing RE6 tanks and capcom open their eyes and make the next game really great

GIVE ME ONE GOOD CAMPAIGN INSTEAD OF 4 or 5, STOP TRYING TO PLEASE ALL TYPE OF GAMERS JUST FOCUS ON YOUR RE FANBASE AND MAKE A GAME NEXT TIME. HARD TO PLEASE EVERYONE

Good job IGN.

I'm tired of these damn movie games.
I'm tired of these QTE games that weren't in the past.
I'm tired of these scripted event games!

I want to play the damn game, dont take the controller out of my hands! Ninja Gaiden 3 comes to mind (another great series ruined) when I see BS like RE6

RE was never this S***! I'll definitely pass. And this is from a gamer that beat all RE games except 5. I even beat Code:Veronica, that was a great game by the way.

From that vid, I'd score it lower. I'm going to rent & see how it is before I completely dog the game.

@Poprocks359

I don't necessarily think that Hatsune Miku means that he/she wants it to fail, but because the game sucks, and not just a bad Resident Evil, but a bad third person shooter in general, that he/she hopes it fails for that reason.

It's not going to fail, it's got Resident Evil slapped on the cover, but the game is easily one of the worst third person shooters this gen.

I'd like for this game to fail because it's a garbage game. What's wrong with wanting a good game to succeed and a poor game to fail? I don't see anything wrong with it because when people act like sheep and buy a crappy game, companies like Capcom will continue to milk said crap because they know their sheep will buy it.
Tapewurm  +   752d ago
This is how I look at it......there are several reviews out there...some good and some bad...I have actually enjoyed all of the core Resident Evil games since the release of the 1st one...I liked 5 just as much as I liked 4....so I am going to pick this up and judge for myself. You have to remember that game reviews are that particular reviewer's OPINION.....and we all have differences, likes, and dislikes that are unique to us.....after playing the demos, I think this game warrants a purchase.

I guess I'll have to wait for Zombie U for a real zombie experience even though I purchased this game already in the "Archives" form. If you take away the added bonuses in the archives version your actually only paying 19.99 for RE6 if you payed full retail for the added content so I'll take that.

I doubt the game is 4.5 bad. Ive seen reviews from as low as 3 to a high of 9 on some sites. IGN actually has a well written review that explains its downfalls and says what it has done right too. The game is prolly closer to 7.9 they gave it than a 4.5.

6/10 translated to 3/5, meaning it's a good game.

Resident Evil 6 is "bad." I'd say you're correct it not being 4.5 bad. I'd say it's more like a 2/10 bad.

Why call it Resident Evil then? Why not create a new Ip instead of riding on the coattails of past games. Its fine if you enjoyed the demo then more power to you, but to just buy it because its a 'Resident Evil' game is just silly, show Capcom with your wallet, its the only way to get them to listen.

Well said Klank - they should have just called the game "People on Bath Salts Shoot Em Up"

I was pissed that Capcom cancelled Mega Man but now after seeing how they are rapeing one of my favorite franchise I am glad that Mega Man went out with some dignity.

@The Klank, everyone sang the praises for resident evil 4 even thu it was the beginning of the survival horror end, and it was the best selling RE title to date, if re4 failed, Capcom might have reconsidered the series direction, but the fact that RE4 and RE5 are the best selling titles to date in the franchise proves that Capcom isn't making any changes soon, and to answer ur question i loved the demo yes

True, RE4 was the beginning of the end for survival horror, but RE6 is so far removed from that game even, it just doesn't sit right with me personally. This will probably sell like hotcakes anyways, I didn't enjoy the demo, that's probably why the review scores are all over the freaking place. I just wish Capcom would at least create a new Ip that was actually about survival horror and let RE become what they want it to be. An action 3rd person shooter.

Thats what I don't get. RE4 took everything out of RE but people love that game like it was the only RE game made. Once I saw that if an enemy died ammo appear, the series was already dead! Lets not forget you could BUY GUNS FROM A MAN THAT APPEARS EVERYWHERE! If u hate 6 and 5 please just say u hate 4 too.

Yeah I got the game and I slowly got into enjoying it like I slowly got used to liking RE4 and 5 with the controls and gameplay, it isnt all too bad, I guess we all have different tastes..
