"You can order the survival-horror video game in the following link: Resident Evil 6"

Even if I wanted RE6, I will not find a "survival horror", fix that please.

i really wish people didn't buy this game. it looked like utter trash.

the series will not change if people keep buying this trash.

LOGICWINS1517d ago

Your opinion doesn't represent that of all gamers. Evidently, not EVERYONE thinks its trash. I thought the demo sucked, but I respect the opinion of anyone who enjoyed the demo/full game.

Number-Nine1517d ago (Edited 1517d ago )

i wish they had a different opinion, that's all.
if they enjoyed the game then props to them.

all i want is for the series to return to what it once was. sales might say it's successful but that's just capcom cashing in on the name and reputation it once had. some genuinely enjoy it, i know. but there is certainly a mixed crowd.

Aceman181517d ago

a friend of mine finished it and gave it a 8/10. so yea there are people out there like you said who will enjoy this game.

Pintheshadows1517d ago

I garnered both enjoyment and primal rage out of it, but it isn't nearly as bad as some have made out. It is however shockingly inconsistent with regards to design, story, gameplay, set pieces.

Chris's campaign is the biggest example of this. It features my favourite moment in the game (a certain boss fight) but so much of it is derivative action game nonsense (shoot down the attack chopper with a grenade launcher) that it left me with a sour taste in my mouth.

aquamala1517d ago

what do you want the series to return to?

dreadful cutscenes/voice acting? limited saves? fixed camera? aweful controls?

Sevir1517d ago

Chris's campaign was OK, the best part of it was the segment tracking down the snake boss. That was up together well. And lemons campaign was awesome..

LOGICWINS1517d ago

Holy crap! So it basically doubled what RE5 did lol.

Grap1517d ago

so what? doesn't mean it's huge success PS3 and Xbox360 have nearly 140M fanbase when in 2008 they were roughly 50M. that's 3x.

geddesmond1517d ago

Yeah it doubled what RE5 sold but with more than double the amount of consols on the market now than there was back then and RE5 released in March. Games always do better after September. Its the weeks to follow that will determine how well the game will do compared to RE5.

For me I already see a crap load of used copies in HMV and Gamestop so I don't think this game will do even 4 mil first year let alone the 7 mil Capcom predicted. I've also noticed everyone on my friends list who got the game are all back playing Borderlands 2 which isn't a good sign for a game.

gnothe11517d ago

geddesmond..would you please stop with your lies..a traded in game has to sit 2 weeks plus before it can be resold..the game hasnt been out two weeks yet...so how have you seen crap loads of used copies...if you dont like the game thats fine..but dont try an make things seem worse than they are...

geddesmond1516d ago

@Gnothe1

Let me ask you a question. Where in this world do you live because I live in Ireland and Gamestop and HMV have loads of used copies. Maybe its policy where your from but not over here.

ShaunCameron1517d ago

The NA and EU #'s just came back and it looks like RE6 will be a success. In other words, Capcom won. Haters lost.

Lovable1517d ago (Edited 1517d ago )

Just enjoy the game people. Weed out all these "nostalgia freaks"

aquamala1517d ago

pre ordered and still playing, great game.
