Resident Evil 6 Review | Thunderbolt

Resident Evil has been wrestling between identities for a while now, and has become oddly emblematic of several Japanese publishers’ attempts to please everyone at once. Resident Evil 4 practically defined an entire genre, turning the “over-the-shoulder” form of third-person shooter into a viable thing to be borrowed, emulated, improved upon, and generally lauded. It’s no secret why the game has received approximately eight million (I counted) re-releases and is brought up in every best-of-anything list, including ones that aren’t strictly about video games. NASA sent a satellite into deep space with several copies of the Wii version, with accompanied texts about the greatest video game achievement in history. People really like Resident Evil 4. It’s a thing.

[Bart Robson, Thunderbolt] (Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360) 5/10
