Capcom responds to mixed Resident Evil 6 reviews

Rely on Horror: The staff I interviewed explained that with Resident Evil 6, the company tried to bring new life into the franchise. According to the company, people were slowly, but surely growing tired of the classic Resident Evil formula. Slowly walking through zombie-infested houses, awkward aiming, forced camera-angles had to go and with Resident Evil 6 they wanted the series to become a more modern and fluent experience, while of course still maintaining core-elements.

Who was getting tierd of that, seriously it was the main thing about RE which added to it's scary/horror elements.

You know just because people want to go back to it's roots dosen't mean we automaticaly want the fixed camera angles back. The new over the shoulder gameplay in RE4 was fine, they just needed to add a little bit more horror which they could of easily done, look at the Lost in Nightmares RE5 DLC when your walking around the mansion in the beginging I felt like I was playing a RE remake but with RE4s gameplay.

"while of course still maintaining core-elements."

...seriously....where was the core elements of RE in RE6, they were non exsistent.

"Leon’s campaigns is more classic survival-horror"

"Jake does a lot of sneaking and stealth"

...just no

Chris and Jakes play a like and Leons sections are basicaly what RE5 would be like in a darker enviroment.

"Overall the message was that they strongly believed that the company produced a quality product that innovated the series " ignorant

Were was the innovation in RE6 it was a generic third person over the top action game and a very badly done one to be honest. Everything we saw in the game had been done before.

"and they hoped that people would accept it for what it is"

Accept a very badly done RE game which is average at best...yeah I'm not a sucker who is going to let you off again Capcom, you need to learn from your mistakes.

Seriously how many developers must utterly fail to ride on cod's coattail to realize that cod players won't give a shit about games that tries to imitate and appeal to these crowd?

nobody said "you know what, I wish resident evil was more like modern shooters" NOBODY ASKED FOR THAT!

Carl_Shocker2025d ago (Edited 2025d ago )

They forget aswell that when COD comes out those types of "fans" will drop any game there currently on (in this case RE6), forget about it and move onto the real thing, AKA COD, for the next 3-4 months while there "COD clone" is left gathering dust.

It's like online modes which used to be great but then COD gets to the developers and they make the online COD like

Killzone did it with Killzone 3
Uncharted did it with Uncharted 3
Resistance 3 did it
Battlefield is getting similar now
Medal of Honour
Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six and even Brink had COD like elements

I could go on...developers need to stop trying to be like another game because all they are doing is ruining the game in the process and ticking off their fanbase

I mean look what greed has done to something like's now a bland, generic, third person co-op game called FUSE


Oh by the way loving the disagrees above...some people can't handle the truth

Want to know something...if you put up with Capcoms crap then you'll get crap.

zeeshan2024d ago

Hey Crapcom. If you wanted to modernize it then I have two words that make a huge hint for you buttheads. Dead Space!!! Nuff said.

Shepherd 2142024d ago

My problem with RE5 was that it tried to be more action oriented but still had the old tank like controls. Should have went with one or the other. Apparently they did with RE6 and it was the wrong one. It's unfortunate really.

HebrewHammer2025d ago

I bet Treyarch and Infinity Ward are tired of making the same game each year - but they manage! lol

GrahamGolden2025d ago

leons campaign was fine and beat the whole res 5 crap jsut a bit too long stop hating
he have the best campaign from all and yes brought back some classic moments.

ab5olut10n2024d ago

Me like cookie

Is the good
Stop hate

Heavenly King2024d ago

I love this game. The Leon campaign is a mix of old RE and RE4. There is not much emphasis on puzzles, but still, there is some room for exploration. And also the game is way harder than RE4-5; so you end up without ammo herbs and ammo lol XD.

People should at least rent it, and if they like it they should buy it :). The final game is a lot better than the 2 demos.

TIP: Change the camera speed from 5 to 1.

Imalwaysright2023d ago

What? I saw nothing on Leon's campaign that resembled original RE. No atmosphere (better sound design please), no lack of ammo (playing on professional), just 1 or 2 puzzles... nothing.

Psycho_Mantis2025d ago

I agree. Sure the concept of older RE's seems dated now but who in the fuck cares? And it was the fucking point!! To be scary back then! Something that RE today really lacks. All flash, all action and no great reaction... it became a mere shell of its former self thanks to the dickheads moving RE into this "New direction" they keep speaking of. But it isnt going anywhere. For example: "Oh look, a dead zombie on the floor! I sure hope that he doesnt come up out of his sleep to kill meeeeee!!!" And then BAM! Zombie later wakes up off the floor and tries to kill you.... and thats their idea of "scary" for Leons story when it comes to being scary? >_>

007Bond2024d ago

Exactly it bugs that they don't just say "we want more sales!"

j-blaze2024d ago

carl, keep living in denial....

"while of course still maintaining core-elements."

like dark atmosphere, jumpy moments, survival horror "Leon and Jake's campaigns" puzzle solving, characters....yeah all there

"Leon’s campaigns is more classic survival-horror"

if classic means RE4 then definitely yes.

"Jake does a lot of sneaking and stealth"

yup it has the survival and tension elements.

that said, RE6 borrowed a heavy influence from west in terms of gameplay (i think it's because alot of ppl complained about the controls, stiff gameplay and not being able to shoot while moving) but it's still a great game.... Capcom and Japanese devs in general need to stop cater to the west

hey Carl_Shocker, aka Whitelightning aka MikeCosgrove "the guy who called out cgoodno!" need to stfu, you're repeating and copy pasting your shit on every Capcom or RE related article.....haters like you will be the reason for Capcom to give the franchise to the west like they did with DMC, ppl complained about Lost Planet 2 Capcom hired a western dev, ppl complained about DMC4, again, Capcom hired a western dev, i don't want RE franchise to suffer the same fate!

Carl_Shocker2024d ago

LOL....I'm the the one living in denial

Your the one who defended the crap out of this game before release and Capcom, you even said at one point it would get amazing scores....and look whats happened.

To keep defending something which has done terrible and a corrupt money grabbing company...well your the one living in denial.

See the thing is j-blaze your in the MINORITY here, RE6 was a crap game and you have to accept that because people like you is the reason why Capcom treats us like crap.

"hey Carl_Shocker, aka Whitelightning aka MikeCosgrove "the guy who called out cgoodno!"

LOL....oh good one, try to call me a bunch of past users because you want to try and get me banned. Are you serious...if I was a duplicate account I would of been banned day 1...I've been on here over a month, especialy if I called out a bloody mod.

"you need to stfu, you're repeating and copy pasting your shit on every Capcom or RE related article"

You know what I find hilarious about do the same except you praise it. So are you trying to say that anything negative about your precious game isn't allowed, sorry but I'm not the only one doing it, take a look around

Honestly some people...totaly delusional, it's like your living in your own world sometimes.

adorie2024d ago

I agree with everything but fixed camera angles. the way those camera angles were set up, they added more tension and sometimes hide monsters from your view.

cleft52024d ago

RE5 sold better than the fame RE4, despite RE4 being constantly released on multiple consoles over the years. It looks like RE6 is set to be the best selling RE game. Sells matter not the opinions of a few hardcore old fans that are being left behind. RE6 is a good Action game with a lot of content. There is barely any survival horror elements in the game and since RE6 will undoubtedly sell well that is the correct path for them to take. You don't have to like it or appreciate it. Just don't buy the game, the same way you probably don't buy the latest CoD games.

Kratoscar20082024d ago

So we have to let fans ignore a 10 years series and let it die just because they want to cater to another audience?

Whats the point of creating a series then? Whats the point of setting a fanbase? You may love this new RE formula but what will happen if lets say in 10 years sports game are the boon and we se RE 9 turned into a shameless racing game with a cannonical continuity.

I dont give a crap about CoD because im not a fan of the series but we RE cant ignore a 10 year awesome series geting pissed on.

Kratoscar20082024d ago

WELL SAID damm i have to give you a Bubble.

RE6 failed because its not a RE game.

Core elements my ass, the horror, ammunition saving, fixed healths, zombies is what made the RE series awesome.

Im tired of TPS so i take SH games any day.

OhMyGandhi2024d ago

I agree.
If a company gets tired of a franchise single most unique selling point (Read: survival horror) then do not make the game. Why the hell did the game have "Resident Evil" on the packaging if their intent was making something entirely new? I don't get it.

Whitefox7892024d ago

You missed one Carl,

"The staff cautiously proceeded to explain, that they hope everybody will judge the game by its own merit and not that of previous installments."

I must say then if that's the case how about we call it something other than Resident Evil (Biohazard)? Since well you know were not suppose to think about the previous games....

csreynolds2024d ago (Edited 2023d ago )


I totally agree with you about Lost in Nightmares, too. It felt like a remake of the original RE; it was tense, interesting, enjoyable, and I was on edge from start to finish. I just wish it lasted a bit longer!

RE6 really disappointed me. Its ambition was admirable, but its execution was deeply unsatisfying. If I wanted an action game with 'mass-market appeal', I'd have bought one of the many existing TPS titles already available. I wanted a Resident Evil game. RE6 was not it.

Okay people im just gonna translate all the PR bullcrap into one little sentence.

We wanted the call of duty fanbase to buy our game the end.

vortis2025d ago

Thanks for that translation. It spared me having to read a lot of BS.

AngelicIceDiamond2025d ago

Yeah, publishers/devs need to stop catering to the Cod crowd. If they don't know how to play the game then that's just to damn bad. Either don't buy it or learn the game its simple.

ritsuka6662024d ago (Edited 2024d ago )

Crapcom made a game that is appealing to anyone who's never played a Resident Evil title.Sadly, that's not the fanbase Crapcom should be aiming for.

edit: Article was barely worth reading.

Least i have popcorn though.

"they wanted the series to become a more modern and fluent experience"

this is all my problems with this generation summed up in one sentence.
