After an initially-positive critical reception, Resident Evil 6 has now come in for a real pasting from various prominent video game sites – leaving it with an Xbox360 Metacritic average of just 68.
All the negative reviews seem dead on to me.QTES are not even enjoyable they are a chore boring and uninspired as well with the shooting mechanics.Only enjoyment I get is watching the cutscenes.
It's not because QTEs are boring, it's the way they were handled by the game. Uncharted, God of War, Heavy Rain all handled QTEs very well and won't be the good games they are now if QTEs were removed from their gameplay.
I usually hate metacritic and all... but holy shit is the user score on this game jaw-dropping 0.4 I have never seen a score that low before Capcom... this is a wake up call Hell, revelations should have been RE6 Just do what you did with revelations, and the game would do better
Haha, I turned the demo off whilst playing Leon 's campaign. The camera was abysmal to say the least and the ability to kick zombies annoyed me. In addition, the horror element - it failed. Me: "Oh no! A zombie which appears to dead lying in front of me, I sure hope this zombie doesn't come to life" * zombie stands up on second trip* Me: "how unexpected!" *facepalm* No wonder this game failed.
camera is abysmal yet for some SUPER odd reason people loved the old crap camerra from RE1....Im confused
... because it added to the gameplay Not knowing what was round the corner was terrifying, for example when a hunter would just sprint round them, scare the crap out of you and attack before you get the chance to react. If you've played them and enjoyed them for what they were at the time you would know this
Yes, he explained it well. It feels clunky when I have to turn the character's body to look around in a TPS whereas the original camera was fine.
the camera back then was needed for the pre-rendered backgrounds. There is no way the old re games on ps1 could change camera angles. That is why the controls were like that, so you could maintain control of your character as the pre-rendered backgrounds changed. Also this is an action game now, and it is stuck in the early 2000s in term of design. If you want to be an action game then people will complain if it has crappy controls, crappy shooting, crappy cover, crappy animations, etc. the first RE came out in 1996 on ps1 with pre-rendered backgrounds. RE6 is a crappy action game in 2012 with full 3d environments and crap camera. Nice try tho, RE 6 sucks.
Glad to see this one getting ripped. Critics went too easy on RE5, but better late than never.
I don't like to admit this, but so do I.
I smell a reboot starting on next-gen systems. Let's get it right this time, eh Capcom?
Nah....RE7 will come. With no improvement.
5 friends stumble onto a mansion. 1 gets killed, 1 gets taken. You play the game from the perspective of the 3 remaining friends with their own paths and discoveries of horror. No machine guns, No previous characters, Just you and a scattered group of friends in a creepy mansion trying to escape. Could be choose your own adventure type with different outcomes on who survives. make it a prequel.
you know....this reminds me of DMC4 everyone wanted it to fail, everyone hated it, then we got the New DMC made by westerners and people were begging for DMC4 to come back. watch what happens next
DMC will suffer the same fate
I know right...if Capcom themselfs can't make a good sequel to one of their franchises then giving it to an average western dev who are as ignorant and arogant as them won't do them any good.
Even though I want to play it, I'm not getting it now to send Capcom a message
you and me buddy only i dont want to play it... saw the review. it's basically: walk 2 feet> quicktime event> walk 2 feet> wait for ai partner> walk 2 feet> quicktime melee enemey to death> walk 2 feet> cutscene> walk 2 feet quicktime event>etc props crapcom for destroying one of my favorite childhood franchises.
I don't think DMC will suffer the same fate though. RE5 and RE6 are much worse by comparison. DMC they just changed the style of the character to be a litle more emo which is like a style choice. They didn't fundamentally RUIN the gameplay and atmosphere (tension) like they did with RE. Although it did look like there were fewer enemies on the screen than the original trilogy and the game looked very LINEAR from the demo. But you have to give the developers the benefit of the doubt until we actually play it. Looked boring from the demo though..
They didnt only change the characters style in DMC. The gameplay is substantialy different, the animations are crap, trickster abillities are apparently gone and the regular enemies dont offer any danger. We knew RE6 was going to suck and we know DMC will suck too. Way to go CAPCOM.
Leon's campaign isn't that bad , haven't played the rest yet . But it's not as bad as some reviews
Well youre saying the best campaign in the game "isnt that bad". Thats a sign bro.
the game is nowhere near those bad scores, haters were barking on every RE6 article about the game having no horror, no puzzles and regenerating health, guess what?! the game has the same level of scares and puzzles of RE4 "which considered by many the best RE game" with no full health regeneration as some here claimed.... the game is much better than RE5 and one of the best in the series
Japan. Platinum Games the king. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance,Bayonetta 1-2 and Nintendo games,Zelda,Mario etc. Capcom best franchise Resident Evil huge failed 6 episode...sad.
I'm glad re6 sucks. Thats what they get for cancelling legends3.
Why don't they take a hint? I hope sales are bad so that they rethink the series and go back to the drawing board. Preferably the drawing board with Resident Evil 1-3 on it. Go back to what makes games good. God I wish Inafune would come back to the Onimusha franchise. Oh well I guess I got Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z to look forward 2.
This series needs Shinji Mikami back in the drivers set to be great again. I'm looking forward to his new game next year.
The good news is: Dead Space 3 is 4 months ahead.
