Resident Evil 6 review: A once-great franchise hits an all-time low | PopWatch

The typical monster in a Resident Evil game is a giant shambling mess of unnecessary limbs and exposed biceps, dripping brain juice through various rows of ambient teeth. It looks like roadkill pumped full of steroids. Which is also a pretty apt description of Resident Evil 6, which arrives in stores today. RE6 is gilded with all the affectations of this gaming moment. It’s got co-op gameplay and multiple campaigns and nonstop banter and RPG-inflected skill trees (“Use skill points to purchase skills!” proclaims a pop-up instruction.) It’s a military action game and a rooftop-hopping adventure game and a shadow-clouded horror game: Basically, it’s Gears of War and Uncharted and even a little bit Resident Evil, why not? (PC, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360) D/A+

This game is getting slaughtered in the press. Capcom must being shitting themselves right about now.

They had to have seen this coming, though.

You think the press is bad? The public is slamming this game hard

It has the lowest user score I have ever seen on metacritic


Thats lower than ME3, Diablo 3 and MW3

I hope this game doesn't sell well. I really do wish to see that happen. Perhaps a commercial failure will prove as a resident evil savior?

As much as I agree with the negative reviews, this game will still sell a sh!tload or as much as RE5.

N4G and other gaming website only make a small percentage of the gaming community and the mainstream dont care about reviews...why do you think COD gets so much hate but yet still sells millions.

Capcom are not even worried because they do not care about there hardcore fanbase who made RE what it is now and only care about the money - at least Team Ninja had the spine to admit that they did wrong by not listening to the fans and giving them what they want.

I'll probably still buy it when it's cheap but I'm so glad I'm saving my money for Dishonored instead

*Bought it.
*Played it.
*Hated it.
*Bit the disc in half.
*Brought it back to Gamestop to see if i could trade it back in without them opening the box.
*Got thrown through the Gamestop window.
*Stopped at the shop on the way home to buy superglue.
*Anyone want to buy a brand new copy of Resident Evil 6?

The really unfortunate thing about this Resident Evil debacle is that somebody is possibly going to lose their job at Capcom if this game is a bomb at retail as well.

There is really nobody there at present that has a grasp on the direction the franchise is headed. So the future for this once epic franchise is looking pretty grim & that is extremely sad if you think about it.

Grim is yesteryear, this is beyond grim.

This franchise is truely dead to us old schoolers...

This makes 2 bad RE games back to back... the image of this franchise is being dragged through the mud!

One of the greats is truely going down in the worst fashion ever...
helghast102  +   1059d ago
Hey now, don't lump 6 in with 5.
5 looks like GOLD in comparison to 6, at least 5 has Lost in Nightmares.
IWentBrokeForGaming  +   1059d ago
I ment the Racoon City game, but I actually forgot to add 5 to the list... man I guess that makes 3 horrible games back to back, lol!
belac09  +   1059d ago
im as old school as they come and i actually love this game. i think its my favorite RE since 4.
schlanz  +   1059d ago
That's encouraging. I've been gaming for over 20 years and I find the backlash towards this game borderline immature... it certainly can't as bad as some are making it. I almost feel as if the negative press is pandering to the overwhelmingly negative "fan" response to the demo and the overall direction the series has taken. As if catering to their whining and bitching will gain their trust and continued patronage. Give the game a decent score and the accusations of being paid off might hurt their readership.

Anyway, when I finish Borderlands 2 I'll pop this in. I'm not expecting this to be the GOAT or anything but definitely an entertaining experience. I feel like gamers these days try hard to not be entertained. They've become a nation of sourpuss critics.

I'm liking the game so far. Good job capcom!
Gamer-Z  +   1059d ago
I just did the little brother test and he loves the game, he also told all his little friend about it. I think we can all agree who this game was aimed for and its not fans.

Lot more troll reviews out there than normal
doogiebear  +   1059d ago
Even more troll comments. Your comment being exhibit "A".

I'm so happy RE6 is getting negative reviews, someone has to wake Capcom up.

This game was simply awful. All the ones who have good reviews are either shills or viral marketers.
GiantFriendlyCrab  +   1059d ago
I played through it thismorning with some friends from my dorm who bought it as soon as it released. I am soo glad that I didn't go out and buy it immediately. I would have thrown a fit that I funded this **** heap. And that is really all it is, a **** heap. There were points that when I was playing the game, I wished that I wasn't. And there were other times when there were so many cutscenes, that I wasn't actually even playing a game. They said they were going back to their roots, and then **** us with this garbage that they call a game. It sucks realizing that you waited this long for a game, and they produced this steamy pile of crap. BRING BACK SURVIVAL HORROR!
