ZConnection writes: Last week, I wrote an essay of sorts over at my website questioning whether Resident Evil 6 lives up to its predecessors. Instead of just offering another opinion on a game that has already garnered more discussion than the presidential election, I thought I’d look at things in a slightly different way. The reviews for 6 are mixed to say the least, but what about the Resident Evil games of the past? What did the critics think of those games at release? It wasn’t exactly a definitive study – there aren’t many complete sources for reviews on the original games – but I found out quite a lot. Today, I’m going to compress the 6000 words to something a little more accessible.
