Resident Evil 6 needs more credit

If you’ve been keeping up with Capcom’s Resident Evil 6, you’ll surely have noticed the overwhelming panning of the game from critics, who have called the game a complete mess and a broken shell, virtually unplayable.

Claims like that are unfounded.

The game isn’t perfect, but offers so much more than some are willing to give it credit for.

Leon's campaign was actually really good. This game is actually decent, yes it has its faults but it isn't totally broken and garbage. Worth the $60? Not really. My main concern is that it is a Resident Evil game and RE is known for survival horror which was absent from this game. I never ran out of ammo and I felt like I could pretty much fight my way through. There was never really a fear of dying. Overall, I'd give this game at least a 7/10.

agreed 100%, i also agree with the ign review as well, to me it's 7.5-8 game, the feel of the Japanese characters is good, decent game but nowhere near the level of resi 4

"My main concern is that it is a Resident Evil game and RE is known for survival horror which was absent from this game. I never ran out of ammo and I felt like I could pretty much fight my way through."

But it was known WAAAY before RE6 released that it wasn't going to follow the traditional survival horror theme. Did you spend $60 on RE6 KNOWING well in advance that you were going to be disappointed by it?

No, because I didn't buy it. I borrowed it from a friend. I had to find out for myself if this game is really that bad but it wasn't. Not at all. It doesn't deserve 1/10 or anything like that. Besides my point on how its not a survival horror, its still good for an action type game. I wasn't disappointed for the most part, unlike most people I enjoyed the game for what it is.

Yeah, thats what I figured. I haven't played the full game yet, but I have played the demo. IMO, even as an action game, I can't appreciate it.

what difficulty did you play on? when i started the game on professional ammo was VERY scarce, especially in chris campaign which is designed to be a shooter i actually found myself using the survival knife most of the time in his campaign but thoroughly enjoyed it

People already traded it in for credit....geez.

That box art reminds me of MW3's box art, but with purple. -_-

Just sayin.

if this game had a different title it would be praised for being a 30 hr campaign. for having 4 different campaigns that intertwine the stories, but since its resident evil it gets crapped on. re WAS known for survival horror and that stopped at re4. sadly its not known for survival horror any more. i would love to see a return to the genre of survival horror. does that mean i want tank controls and awkward camera positions? no but survival horror can still be done.. now was re4 scary at times? yes. was it survival horror? that's questionable, but the complaints that re6 is getting as opposed to re5 is ridiculous. people need to stop their shit and grow up. i normally never back capcom because i hate their money hungry ways of business but re6 was in EVERY WAY an improvement over re5. almost every complaint gamers had about re5 was addressed or improved upon( better a.i partner, actual zombies, longer campaign, walk and shoot varied races.) some people hated how action oriented re5 was and some people liked it. for the people who liked it try chris campaign and for the people who hated it try leons campaign its that simple. now im not saying capcom did a stellar job but compared to 5 they actually listened to most of the complaints with re5. and they did try to have some horror elements in leons campaign which was almost COMPLETELY absent in the entire re5 campaign. so if anything should be bashed its re 5 for being a carbon copy of re4 (gameplay wise)not adding anything new to the formula except co-op

I don't know...if this game wasn't an RE game and was just an original IP instead, I think it would be receiving a lot more hate for the abundance of QTEs, the dodgy camera, the often-awkward gameplay, the completely useless cover system, the technical issues, etc. Critics and gamers would be a lot less forgiving on the game's faults if it wasn't part of a much-loved and classic series. Hell, better games (that just so happened to be new IPs) have received a much harsher critical response than RE6 has in the past.
