What exactly is a "Set piece" as reffered to in the review?

Forgive my ignorance. Im just curious. Im a huge fan of the game though.

I was wondering the same thing. I think it might be random junk in the way like pipes you have to jump over on a walkway for example. Or maybe desks or whatever. I'm not 100% sure if that is correct though.

 No offense but that doesnt actually help me understand what that reviewer meant. According to what im getting from that link is that the video game equivalent would be a "level". Wich every game assuredly has, No?

It's kind of like a scripted event, like trucks appearing out of nowhere and buildings exploding. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/VideoGameSetpiece

I think the Wiki article sums set piece up perfectly.

A cat knocks over a cup, a man slips on the spilt cofee, slipping his slams a door that knocks into the president of the United States of America whp presses the button and wipes out 90% of this blessed earth.........

 A Micheal Bay set piece in a nutshell. We have a saying im the UK, 'all fur, no knickers' (it's an analogy for a street hooker) but it sums up the set pieces in RE6 perfectly and any piece of trash cinema.

 

A well composed set piece can be poetry, set piece after set piece with no substance or build up is trash... Like this game.

 

If you think I'm being harsh or trolling, I'm not. I'm really enjoying RE6, but it's faults are rancid and the critics knocking it harshest are on the money.
