It just depends on the person really, and if they judged the game on its own, or if they compared it to the games that came before it. As an RE entry it doesnt seem like it holds up to the rest, but as an action title its average or good to those who enjoy the genre. Not everyone will hate it because if they arent familiar with the series and go in with no expectations theres not that massive amount of hype for it to be weighed down with, others opinions will always differ and there will always be games that cause a divide between fans or non fans. But theres no denying the game has badly done mechanics and some strange design choices. Ill still check it out to form my own opinion of it, but theres really no reason to hate anyone who does enjoy it, just ignore them and move on. I recall you feeling the same way about RE5, but this sounds like it was the final nail in the coffin for the series for you. I dont think capcom will get the picture anytime soon anyway.
This is gonna be my final topic on Resident Evil 6 until the end of the year when it will probably end up being my biggest dissapointment of the year. I have come across certain posts of people trying to defend the game and then having a dig at it's fanbase for wanting it to be like RE1,2,3 and Code Veronica. It's like people were saying stop living in the 90s fanboys but hang on a minute.
Hang on though the majority of the fans have Resident Evil 4 as their favorite in their eyes as the pinnacle of the series. I mean it's on many people best lists by not only fans of the series but game magazines,sites and had bagged many awards such as GOTY 2005 which it truly deserved. That was when the series changed it evolved with great controls,good pacing and many other good things.
What the game didn't have you do was certain button prompts every 5 or so minutes,rubbish inventory system,poor combat and the various quick time events only really happened at key points not all the time whereas with number 6 it did. You didn't have to keep pressing L or R to climb a rope or rapaidly press the certain button 3 times in a shark chase. Yes you did if Del Lago managed to knock you out of the boat but that was to be expected.
I have also heard people comment and saying why they say it's good because it's a big game. So a big game doesn't mean a better game. I mean Sonic 2006 had about 3 stories and a final version and that was s***. Some people are saying Kevin doesn't know what he is talking about well to be honest I can actually see where he was coming from.
Worst of all are the people who say why can't they just accept Resident Evil has moved on. We have since number 4 which is a magnifcent game and still worth a playthrough now and again. It's likle fans are thinking it's people who played the older games are b****ing about it. Wrong people who played the likes of RE4 are too. Why can't some people just admit that it was bad game.
I just don't like it when some people have a go at certain people or sites thinking they got it wrong. I always determine a game on how it plays and it's enjoyable. The controls are a mess, Quick Time Events to frequent and most of all the inventory system sucks. Oh and Chris Redfields campaign is basically similar to COD and it's boring.
I didn't base my review on GS opinion I thought overall it was a bad game the demo sucked and the actual game does as well. People gave good valid reasons so stop having a go at them.
Why cant people except that the series has gone downhill when they changed from survival horror to 3rd person action from RE4 till now? I thought that aside from ORC, the Chronicles series on Wii and Mercenaries on the 3DS, the RE games from 4 were all good action games, but not even close to compare to the original games in the series.
yes after shinji mikami leave resident evil. resident evil series have different focus to entertain us. is not survival horor anymore re become horor action shooter :) but what people say i still love this game except bad camera in re6
Well, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I think it's perfectly fine for anyone to like or dislike the game, as long as they're not shoving their opinions down everyone's throats. If that's the case, then I can see why you are bothered by those people and what they're saying. But if that's not the case, I'd just ignore what they're saying and let them enjoy their game, no big deal.
I've beaten Leon and Jake's campaigns so far and I'm about half way through Chris's. I'm pretty much an RE fan boy having played and loved all the games and movies, including the live action movies, so maybe I'm blinded by my love of RE but the official score of 4.5 is too low in my opinion. Yes the game has frequent and usually unnecessary quicktime events or button prompts but other than that I'm finding it to basically be like 5 but slightly better. Yes it suffers from a few issues but 4.5 is too low. I'd say it should be given atleast a 6 but like I said that could be my love for the series partially blinding me :P
@Blueguy93 Revelations is a fantastic game I rated it a 9 out of 10 whereas number 6 I only rated 5 out of 10.
@kbaily : That's what I am trying to say some people seem to forget that Resident Evil changed with number 4. Number 5 wasn't as good because maybe of the high acclaim number 4 got. Resident Evil 6 though is just bad and some people try to have a dig at fans of the series for saying the latest installment sucks just can't accept it.
@TheGuardian03 Well not everyone thinks so and so is bad it's that some can't accept peoples opinion. Resident Evil 6 is a mess and I don't know where the series goes from here.
I have a question: How does it compare to Revelations? I love that game, but want to know if you think it's better than Resident Evil 6.
There are always delusional fans who can't accept when something they like sucks. I think many have realized that Resident Evil peaked at #4 and there was no where to go but down. #5 was stooped in racial contreversey and most were disappointed in the final product. And as you and I know all too well there are folks who defend Sonic Next Gen and we can't fathom why. I mean I love Mario but I'm not going to let rose colored fan glasses from admitted that the series is starting to stagnate. I liked New Super Mario Bros. 2 but I do wish it would've taken more chances. Be a fan, don't be a retarded fan.
i didn't like the demo, i haven't got my copy of the game yet i should get it tomorrow though but i'll have to see if i enjoy the game but everyone seems to hate it i wont judge the game until i have played the full game i may enjoy it i don't know i have played every RE game its one my favourite video game series of all time, hopefully i can at least enjoy the game and not hate it but i shall have to wait and see.
