'When it comes to longstanding adaptive franchises, few can compete with the likes of the Resident Evil series. Beginning as a humble fixed camera survival horror in 1996, Capcom's now flagship IP has evolved a great deal to arrive at its current 3rd person, action focused state. However as a by product of such change, Resident Evil has more than a few miss-steps in its history. This coupled with Resident Evil 6's commercial and critical under-performance means Capcom has its work cut out in order to push this franchise back to its previous heights.'
