Gamekult review: Resident Evil 6

"What has the legendary Chris Redfield come to? What happened?". Piers Nivans is the only one to find the right words when he questions himself in the middle of the second campaign, around that awkward moment when boredom meets incomprehension.
Yes, how could Capcom release such an indigestible entry, a laborious TPS who thinks it can copy all that glitters in the West, without ever making the right choices? Caught between archaic gameplay, design punctuated by innumerable displays of poor taste and a multitude of sloppy sequences that ruin all attempts at immersion, the result is really disappointing.
It is true, by focusing on quantity over quality, Resident Evil 6 does ensure copious content in solo and coop, an argument that may find an echo among fans.
But it is the only asset of a game which, like its characters, never managed to assimilate the mutant genes it absorbed. (PC, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360) 5/10

I am buying it. I don't give a damn about reviews anymore. I enjoyed both demos, every gameplay video I have seen is great and I am a fan of all RE games; so this is a must buy for me.

I wonder when people will stop listening to reviews, and judge the games by themselves, watching gameplay vids, trailers and playing the demos.

I have had lots of fun with games rated mediocre like God Hand, Shadows of the Damned, NeverDead, etc. That is why I don't trust reviews.

From the demos I can tell this game plays very different from your standard 3rd person shooter; and I love that because Capcom is trying new things. I hate when every other game tries to be a clone of other;because playing the same thing for 3-4 times gets boring, that is why I am happy with Capcom this time (even though I have hate them in the past due to their Disk locked content nonsense). The gameplay takes a bit to get used to, but the more you play it the better it gets, and if you are playing with a friend, it is a blast.

I am writing this, so people can make their own opinion of the game, and not follow like a zombie every review out there.

Can not wait for tomorrow!!

They had two demos, three campaigns each thats six in total and they were terrible. Most games sites even admitted that

Capcom have shown plenty off for this game, nearly runing half the game if you think about it and it looks bad

Reviews have came in and most of the big name sites, sites you wouldn't expect to go against Capcom are saying it's crap

I think people made there mind up BEFORE the reviews...

Plus we already knew half of the story through previews alone

I'm glad you liked the demos but like Carl_Shocker has said most people made up their minds before the reviews were released like myself.

I hated the demos and I found the controls and camera infuriating to the point that I simply just didn't want to play it anymore.

If you can get past all of the games flaws then good for you but don't assume people are just hating on the game because of the reviews (which are mixed) because a lot of us have played the game for ourselves.

There's going to be so many pre owned copys of this game on shelves by next month.
