Because the Resident Evil 6 Metacritic scores are a little on the low side there have been suggestions that there is no hope left for the franchise, but is it really bad as all that?
Short answer, no.
Certainly there are been a few negative reviews, but to characterize it as negative overall is a bit of a stretch. I can understand if every reviewer out there was saying it was a mess, but there's a good chunk of professional reviewers out there that think overall the game's actually pretty damn good. Wouldn't it more accurate to say that reviews are "mixed"? As for it being the end of a series, not a chance. People are acting like this is the first time a game with "Resident Evil" in the title has been met with mixed reviews.
RE6 should die quietly like it didn't exist at all. oh and i dearly which that Capcom go bankruptcy so Sony buy them off and then fire them all, and then make Inafune make a megaman game :)
Agreed...RE should have stopped at 4 and died with some dignity. My only fear now is that they make a new Mega Man and rape him like they did RE :( Also I noticed you avatar and allot of people are fearing that adding co-op to DS3 is a step in casualizing DS...hopefully DS3 is not action pack and less horror.
i hope so too :(
Really, the game is not that bad. I will admit that the controls and camera felt a little weird at first; you get use to it eventually. I did start the series at 4 and I think it is a definite step up from both 4 and 5. You do have to give capcom some credit for packing the game with content. It is not perfect like all games out there. It is, however, enjoyable and very much playable.
go play RE0,RE1,RE2,RE3,RE code veronica and then state your opinion. "You do have to give capcom some credit" LOL
"You do have to give capcom some credit" For stuffing the game with content. Am i really obligated to play the previous versions to give my opinion on this game? No, no.
these older RE's so ancient now, the game play mechanics are very outdated compared to today's games. I think it will be hard for someone to enjoy these games today without the nostalgia.
Hope is meaningless in games. It's sells or it doesn't. If it bombs, then resident evil might change for the best. If not, you all know the rest.
-I didn't read the rest of the article because of spoilers, but what is the writer getting at? Is the author saying Society is incredibly Negative at the moment and it's reflecting in reviews? If he is saying that, he's right. America is drowning in a depression, and this years election is not inspiring any hope either. The people are frustrated and the rage is being taken out all over the place, in the digital and physical worlds.
Chris dies :( Then you can press continue and start the level again - Chris died about 20 times before I passed his play through.
Awwww.. I F'ing hate cheap deaths! :'(
I think the complete game is really awesome! The only trouble I had was the camera, but once you lower the speed to 1 (out of 5)it is really enjoyable. It is harder than previous games, because the areas are bigger than in RE5 (more like RE4), and zombies can appear from every possible side, so you end up with no bullets and herbs. So far I am playing the Leon campaign, and all I can say is that it is terrific!! it is a mix of RE3 (you are on the streets with crashed cars and fire everywhere and the zombies come from unexpected places) and RE4 with improved mobility. The game is not puzzle heavy as the old RE games, but still it offers moments of exploration. This time the AI companion is quite useful, because it does not borrow items from you, and can not die; in case the AI behaves like crap in a certain situation XD. For me the Leon campaign can be the whole game. The other campaigns are like bonus :). Instead of Buying weapons and upgrade them, you buy and upgrade skills and abilities. It is a nice twist from the gameplay of RE4-5. In general the only complain I have is that, even though the game looks good, RE5 looks better. ¬_¬ 8.5/10
re5 is not better look closer.its the desert lit envirement that makes it appear better but its not
My gf bought the game for me. I see it has so many mixed reviews. But evrn that can't wait to play it. Go watch. INDIE GAMES:the movie. Makes you appreciate more about ppl who make games, and for that I take all the developers for making games.
A friend of mine went ahead and got his copy. The game isn't bad at all, in fact i think i'll pick it up.I watched him all day play his and from what i can tell its preety cool.Leon quest seems to be the best. I haven't enjoyed a true re game since RE3. God i missed the zombies.
