Ashley Oconnor: It’s been a week since Resident Evil 6 hit stores here in the US and the overall consensus is very mixed. I’ve been playing every night since launch, and my conclusion? Resident Evil 6 has a great story. The gameplay, however, while above average is very lack luster compared to other Resident Evil games in the franchise. Resident Evil has definitely evolved from its original release in 1996 from a genre defining survival horror game into a full-blown action game.
