Resident Evil 6 Review [Capsule Computers]

Dustin Spencer of Capsule Computers writes:

"Sixteen years ago, Capcom brought about the game that introduced a lot of us to the genre of survival horror. Sure, there were certainly others before it, but the Resident Evil franchise was the first to become a blockbuster hit and has not lost it’s steam since due to Capcom’s steady stream of support. Resident Evil 6 marks the sixth title in the main line of games, and has a lot to live up to due to how quickly the industry has evolved."

10/10 REALLY? REALLY? Wow some no name site is worried about being black balled or losing advertisement money.

futurefrog1899d ago

did you ever consider the fact that the game is just good?

Christopher1899d ago

Not based on the majority of reviews out there. Sure, it could be good and still receive a wide range of ratings. But, you don't go from a lot of 3/10 to 6/10 scores and have that one 10/10. It doesn't make much sense.

And, yeah, it's one person's opinion. But, it's likely this person's opinion isn't a very good one.

futurefrog1899d ago

I read the review and honestly he sold me on the 10. I'll be pciking up this game. I read Destructoid and Gamespot and some of the other big sites and honestly their reviews felt like jokes just to create controversy, not well written at all and purposely low-grading the game for hits. Don't believe me? Try read Destructoid's review with a straight face, it's laughable.

@futurefrog

Be honest, you were picking up the game regardless. You're just trying to justify the review score and your purchase. The game is not unplayable but it's a sad excuse for a game, and most definitely a RE game.

jetlian1899d ago

hows an opinion not good lol. what does anybody elses opinion have to do with his.

I liked the demo and will get the game. But the idea that someone has to have the same mind as others sound like a person with cult like issues

@cgoodno

Really shouldnt you read the review before passing judgment on the review..considering you're a moderator?

Getting back to the point the 3 you spoke of came from Jim Sterling one of the worst reviewers out there...he proved yet again that he is a pox on the industry.

As a side not you say 6 as if it's the highest score when you know full well that IGN, Gameinformer and Gametrailers gave it over a 7.5 to 8.9. Thats a big difference.

Ranma11899d ago

this review is as reliable as a donkeys as*hole

Army_of_Darkness1899d ago

"Resident Evil 6 is the best entry to date among the prestigious series"

Umm.. No. RE4 and RE2 are still the best.

"Resident Evil 6 is the exclamation point after a sixteen year journey, giving us further indication that the king of the survival horror genre still reigns supreme."

Dead space 1-2 reign supreme this Generation still. Sorry.

***Really shouldnt you read the review before passing judgment on the review..considering you're a moderator? ***

I did... don't know where you get off saying I didn't or where it was even applicable.

If you're questioning me because I said "It's likely this person's opinion isn't a good one," that's based on their drastically different scoring of the game and their belief that it is a perfect game when so many other opinions disagree greatly from their own. It's only a response to the above, not the overall article.

HiddenMission1898d ago

@cgoodno
Yeah when you say " And, yeah, it's one person's opinion. But, it's likely this person's opinion isn't a very good one." it becomes very clear that at the time you had not read the review...because of the part where you say "likely" right there you showed that your statement was founded off an assumption and not from the act of having actually read the review.

I also noticed you failed to address my points about the high score of 6 versus proof that it has scored a lot higher from larger sites.

These are based off of observations and facts...I dont have to imply anything Im mearly pointing out facts.

fei-hung1898d ago

Played the demo and found:

1) camera to be shitty
2) unnecessary amount of stupid QTEs
3) the game is not a survival horror as much as it is an action fest

You then add what many other reviewers have said about dodgy melee, the many wanna be Uncharted chase sequences with minimal interaction and you do start to question where the 10 comes from.

As for the big sites, they are the same idiots who give the likes of CoD, GTA and other million selling franchises high scores for the very same reasons they mark down other games.

For those who have been playing RE since RE1, kiss this franchise goodbye. It used to be a classy woman but has been replaced by a Bieber Bimbo. They sell more according to Capcom as they are easier to access by the mainstream.

RE has been dumbed down, DMC has been dumbed down, wonder what franchise is next.

***because of the part where you say "likely" right there you showed that your statement was founded off an assumption and not from the act of having actually read the review. ***

No, it doesn't do that at all. You're making a leap of logic.

The reason I say "likely" is because I haven't played and can't compare my own to his review. I can only compare it to the others out there. I would feel unfair to say "it must be bad" solely because of the opinion of others when calling his opinion "bad" is my own opinion. Once I've played the game, then I'd be able to say whether his opinion is good or bad.

***I also noticed you failed to address my points about the high score of 6 versus proof that it has scored a lot higher from larger sites. ***

Didn't feel it worthwhile. I had already addressed one of your assumptions, I didn't see the need to correct you on another. But, if you want, I only mentioned that most scores were in that range. I didn't say all scores were in that range.

You are grasping at straws here, Hidden. You are also extremely biased based on your other comment here declaring the game a good game regardless of opinion (it is the "reality" of the siutation). I have no review of the game, I am only using what I've gathered from various reviews, including this one. That includes a lot of negatives from the same sites that gave it high scores but overlooked those in the final scores for whatever reason they may have.

a 10/10!!

(insert bags of money here)

Yodagamer1899d ago (Edited 1899d ago )

I personally think re6 is definitely gonna be one of those games that is gonna be a 10/10 to some people and a 6/10 for others. It just depends on how you like your resident evil games. I knew this game was gonna get wildly mixed reception since the announcement of the game.

samiahm1899d ago

It was an amazing game, and I'm sure there's lots of love and hate. This opinion isn't bad because you think it is cgoodno.

Christopher1898d ago

It's a bad one because it deviates so greatly from the norm. Not because I think it is.

Question: have you played and completed the game? I ask because you said it was an amazing game. Another user on here that I know has played it pretty much agreed with GameSpot's review.

catch1898d ago

An opinion deviating from the norm makes it bad? That is absolutely absurd reasoning.

Sometimes things that seem obvious are wrong no matter how many people believe it. Sure, the earth is flat. I am not saying any reviewer can have a "right" opinion of the game but to say an opinion is bad because they strongly disagree with others is ridiculous.

Christopher1898d ago

***An opinion deviating from the norm makes it bad? That is absolutely absurd reasoning. ***

That's life...

Most things that deviate from the norm are seen as "bad opinions" or "bad actions" or the like.

When the majority of people rate a game between 5 to 7 out of 10, and then a few pop up with either 1/10 or 10/10 scores, those are typically seen as bad opinions. Why? Because they are extremes that don't paint a picture of the actual game to the normal person but to only those extremist types for one reason or another.

A bad opinion doesn't make a bad person. Just an opinion that can't be used well to help the average person decide on the quality of a game.

CAPsule COMputers

The name Capcom is an abbreviation of "Capsule Computers"

Gee, I wonder how it got a 10/10 here.

Merrill1899d ago

Even if this reviewer enjoyed the game how the hell does it get a 10? Trying to get capcoms attention much?

If anyone ever needed to be reminded that reviews were just opinions and nothing more, this game has provided that. I've never seen such a wide gap between scores.

Grenade1899d ago

The reviewer is out cashing his cheque right now.

discordman1899d ago

I wish I was. That would be fantastic to get paid for enjoying a game. ;) Capcom provided nothing but the reviewer's copy, and I had one of the best weeks all year going through all of the campaigns.
