Resident Evil 6: Most Underrated Resident Evil Ever

Jed Pressgrove from Fate of the Game says: "Resident Evil 6 was a critical and commercial failure. No one should feel sorry for poor Capcom, the company who sold us at least five versions of Street Fighter II. It’s simply unfortunate that a reasonably entertaining game like Resident Evil 6 was skewered by video game journalists and fans."

Everybody said this game was shite, but it was really more like garbage. So you see, it was underrated.

It was trash. Had more than 1000 people working on it, yet was a terrible action movie wannabe.

And out of those 1000 people, none noticed the giraffe.

Resident Evil 1-4: Scared the hell out of people, tense, emotional.

Resident Evil 6: Getting chased by a tank in a mansion, finding a motorcycle, using it to jump over a helicopter.

Seems legit.

Played an hour of the so-called traditional RE Leon Mission. Popped it out of my 360 and traded it in. I figured, if that was best the game had to offer, the bad missions might be too painful to play through.

Found this....sums up my hour and change long playthrough..

Yeah...ok then

Have you played the old RE games, if you did, did you actually like them for what they were. If so how can you like the new RE.

It ruined the franchise

I was a big fan of the old games when they came out. But going back to them is not much fun. I articulate the reasons in the piece.

Mr_Nuts1798d ago

Are you kidding, I'd rather play the old ones and even the remake more then RE5 or RE6

FateoftheGame1798d ago (Edited 1798d ago )

Good for you. As a fan of good shooters (Contra, Metal Slug, Doom, Wild Guns, Sin and Punishment, and, of course, Resident Evil 4), I'd rather not play the outdated Resident Evil games. In addition to their laughable shooting mechanics, they have clunky movement controls. Capcom corrected the idiotic movement controls of the old REs with Devil May Cry. Like the old REs, Devil May Cry switched camera angles frequently, but Dante ran exactly where you wanted him to without as much fuss.

Tbh, the most underrated resident evil games were the outbreak seires, played like the old ones, multiplayer online, i think it was too far ahead of its time, if capcom were to remake them and put them on the online market, theyd make a gold mind, the games concept was a gold mine just too ambitious for its time. Now that we are all about online it can come out with is eyes closed, people would buy it, whether it be to remember the old feel, to play coop on a game that mostly ppl never played on coop or etc

resident evil 6 was far from underated. The game was an action hollywood style game. No sense of a "survival" theme. A tank chasing you down!? in a mansion... wtf happened to resident evil.

CaEsAr-1798d ago

Resident Evil 6 is an awful game.

'Resident Evil 6:Worst Resident Evil Ever'

That headline is more fitting. I've completed every other Resident Evil that has been made, but couldn't bring myself to finish Res Evil 6, it was a mess. There's no justifying it I'm afraid, it was crap.

EDIT:I will add that if Capcom want inspiration on how to progress the survival horror genre they only need to look at the survival horror aspects of The Last of Us.

They need to remember why people were interested in the franchise to begin with, it wasn't for the big action scenes, it was for the scares.
