Most games receive a number of low review scores, but in this instance should Capcom be worried when it's an all too familiar story for them.
The Resident Evil brand is strong enough to move units regardless of quality
I can agree with this, but I think it will sell less than Capcom projected.
Yes definitely. I mean, a lot of fans and of course potential customers were already angry with the direction the franchise was heading. So some hardcore fans already are gonna pass on this one, then there won't be as much newcomers if they realize the latest installment is averaging a much lower average score than its predecessors.
So true but thats what bugs me with Capcom It's Resident Evil, even if they stayed true to it's roots and kept it as a horror game the game would still sell. Trying to turn it into COD to gain a bigger audience is just replacing fans with new ones, not making the audience bigger. I mean thats why they changed it in the first place to try and attact a bigger crowd for more money or to secure sales, yet they could of kept it like a RE game and it would of still sold a ton.
Really, the same can be said for most other games. They are now trying to attract a bigger audience and as a result suffer changes that make them worse. The people that get hit the most are the original fans that know what changes the franchises have undergone. Diablo 3 is less hardcore now AND it has an auction house. FFXIII was so linear even a 7 year old can beat it.
Well true I would buy but now it's so easy to pass thank god :D
The only game i would buy regardless if it's shit gothic put that name on tv i buy it bro
True but sadly this will just be a rent for me capcom does not deserve my hard earned money.
yeah true ,but it would be sad if the next instalments were exactly like this game, the future of the franchise wouldn't look very bright
Joe casual will lap up this game.
Man, I hate that guy
I'm buying it you damn elitists
ok hipster ;)
Resident Evil 6 will blow loads due to the negative reviews Fixed
gamespot res6 review 4.5/10 nuff said the game is pure garbage i bet the 4 pts went to leon campaigns only..but one guy alone cant save the franchise
So we should just bow down and obey the reviewers? I should have never play Resonance of Fate, Monster Hunter(PS2), Tenchu, Way of the Samurai, Never should have gotten my Vita. And instead spent all my days playing CoD, and random other highly review games. Yeah, no thanks. I will judge games on my own, I don't like most highly reviewed games anyways. My opinion is what I go off of. Gamespot also gave FFXIII an 8.5, and every reviewer praised Skyrim despite it's very well known crashes on the PS3, and NO one mentioned them being so game breaking. If you don't like the game, that is fine. But don't flaunt reviews like fact. I really don't care what they say, they review off of hype. Nothing more, I judge games on my own, and don't seem someone to tell me what to play. I will be getting RE6 because it was fun, though I did not like Chris' campaign, Leon and Jake's are fun.
Lovely comment. Put that thing above in it`s place.
hmm.. really on the fence on this one... finished all REs.. LOVED IT !! But the demo for 6 is so boring.... none of the campaigns amused me... i felt like, i'm just kinda forcing myself to finish the demo... Maybe i'm too old... but oh well.
Midnight release for me, sweet.
I give up on reviewers. I have not played this game yet, so I can't be a judge of quality yet, but I think the most glaring thing I saw in a review would be " The implementation of a cover system and move-and-shoot controls add to this overall shift for the franchise, making it less about its core principles and more about trying to be something it’s not." from the IGN review. Didn't people scream when RE5 came out that it was "broken" because there were no run and gun controls? The main complaint that I have seen so far is that the pacing is off. If so, that is unfortunate. IGN did not give the game a bad review at all. Gamespot did. Some are giving it really high scores. Some give it low. It looks to me like it will be a fine experience.
No. Seriously, this a poor game. Play the demo, you'll see. People were mad about Resident evil 5 because it wasn't even PRETENDING to be horror anymore, but in all fairness it was a good game. A good action game atleast, the gameplay worked and the Co-op was fun. Resident Evil 6 on the other hand, just has a lot of flaws in general. Its not so much about the direction the series has taken but more about the bad controls, horrendous amount of quick time events ect ect
That's true. Although Resident Evil 5 was far away from being a horror game it was still a really good game which I finished 3 times on my PS3.
Yeah people wanted to walk and shoot at the same time, not have the back of the character take up most of the screen, let him jump on his back and fire a ton of bullets into enemies and manage to kill enemies with quick time events, melee moves and a knife. We wanted something like Dead Space...that was so simple it was basicaly what we wanted to shoot and move at the same time. It would be like RE4 just your allowed to move...not all the added over the top moves they added. Have you noticed though that the bigger sites are the ones giving it the low scores...to me thats surprizing since I thought it would be the other way round. It must be crap if the big sites are giving it the low scores...
But they already lost me as a customer as I cancelled my pre-order after playing the demo.
Bought the game to play it with my girlfriend,yet I still think the game is a piece of **** ...
this old saying comes to mind....."a fool and his money are easily parted" Hope anyone who buys it enjoys it, After RE5 and Scamcoms DLC ripoff history I see no need to waste my money on this wanna be a RE game. If I want to play a 3rd person action cover shooter I will play some Gears or some Uncharted.
well go do that. We dont care about your gaming habits! lol Always more then 1 game in any given genre. And cover isnt needed in this like those games. Uncharted doesnt even have real boss fights or story coop. Both of those games arent scary to any degree. The game will sell and the old die hards can cry me a river. Watch RECV:HD A/S rank walk through on youtube its nowhere near survival horror. you can walk right past zombies and save ammo like theres no tomorrow. this review wont stop casuals
I doubt this game is 4.5 bad, most movie games get round about that score. Its just not what people wanted, that doesnt mean its a bad game.
Nobody cares about reviews anymore.
Sad but true
This is worrying. Capcom need to realise things need to change.
I won't be buying it. Wasted my money on Raccoon City, don't feel like getting jipped by the same company twice in one year.
I only put 5$ on it at Gamestop. I will just move that over to another game. I am glad they allowed reviews to be published today so many folks can see and then make up their minds to either continue to buy it, or steer away from it. This will be two dodged bullets from Capcon/RE this year for me. I avoided Raccoon City as well due to reviews and word of mouth. Capcom really needs to get their act together.
It will, but I think a small percentage could get altered in its life time sales only because the masses do look at reviews and scores. They're gonna see that low review number and probably decide not to buy it, While others don't care regardless and decide to buy it anyway. I can see a decent amount of people skipping this title just as easily though.
I think everyone should just try the demo. It tells you everything you need to know. Hence why I'm not buying it lol.
Contrary to popular belief, Most people spend little to no time researching a game before they buy it. Most won't even know it's out until they walk by it in the store and that when they will buy it.
yup, i worked at gamecrazy for 3 years, thats basically how it goes. "Oh snap, a new resident evil? cool lemme get that" still, I love the game :D
And that makes it better? That no matter what bad things there are in the game you just buy it anyway? Ans so gaming in general drops another notch below the lame meter. I love the direction we are heading. And people wonder why gaming sales are slowly declining.
It's nice to see so many people have hope for this game and stand up for it no matter what is said. Come back after you played it and see if you feel the same.
Possibly. RE:ORC didn't exactly sell through the roof but it did sell enough turn in a profit for Capcom. Thank the Japanese PS3 owners for that.
Hopefully the negative reviews will knock some fucking sense in to Crapcom's head and then give us a proper RE game or remake RE2...
All the casual Xbox users will still buy this. They don't know what good games are. Halo effect.
It's sad but true. Heard two guys fighting over what was the best game of all time halo or gears. Sad.
