the re series needs to split into 2 series one that plays like re4 and another that plays like re5 I will say that if you put to many realtime events in you will take away from the game play and really frustrate players by making them wait for it to be over.

Played RE 1 to 4, finished only 3 and 4, have to say my favorite is 4 and then 2.

Quicktime events suck, playing 2 characters with different routes is very nice, something like RE4 gameplay on a less rural place.

A more storydriven plot where we also help ppl escape the zombies and gather to survive ( of course not all survive but without choices between saving one character or another meaning someone survives and the other dies) but not like some games the ppl have quests and quests to do, have one continuous quest that evolve where we help the group but its secondary to the main plot, while some people might or might not have something to do with the main plot.

Go away for a while then come back rebooted.

RE6 is awful and it p#ssed me off severely! QTE's every two mins is a joke!

Reboot is needed and I love the series so much that it cant be left in the darkness. =(

Reboot might save the series if they truly care about true Resident Evil fans but something tells me they care about money mmm

full re boot of the first three will do me fine, especially 1 and 2.  Do that on the next gen consoles and ill be a happy man

mixed reaction is all I got to say.  People complianted it wasn't a survival horror any more.  Well this game is a survival game or fps root.  While RE5 was good game but not true to RE genre.  This game they tried too much and it didn't feel right at time.  RE1 was good because itwas like a movie.  They got carry away here too, just like square did with FF13.  Where is the exploration part fo the game.  All I do was run through less interative enivornment.  I used to like to read those goofy wall post. 

 

I do like that it got back too its roots as a survival game (but not horror).  Game controls weren't different, I got used to RE5.  RE1 is still my all time favorite game, even dead space was a knockoff of it (scary tricks not the space story line).  Actually Deadspace 1 was the closest thing to RE1 that I ever played lately. 

 

I do disagree this is a 4.5, it isn't that bad it is more of a 7.5 like most reviewers here gave it.

Resident evil needs to go back to the start. I agree with you 100 percent true fans understand what re is and 5 and 6 were not there were action not scary and not puzzles. Capcom needs to not worry about increasing sales and needs to worry about the true re fans.

Maybe, Capcom should start from the very beginning. Make a few remakes with original horror elements and after that proceed creating new RE series with the same horror type approach.

i hope it fails to force capcom make good games

RE5 and RE6 are the worst RE sequels 

they were FPS but with third person camera

lol at all the fanboyz, for me after playing RE 1 then 2 then 3 then 4 I can't say herp derp RE 5 and 6 are good...they are not, they are utter boring crap.... they are not RE games they are FPS with RE name

 

IN FACT if RE5 and 6 had different names they might be reviewed better!!! cause now we MUST compare them to RE 1,2,3, and 4

 

if you want to throw away ur money, that's your right, but it won't make RE6 any better, the game is bad its BAD how do i know... cause I played 1000+ games before it and i know BAD games when I play them.

when zombies pick up guns it usually means the movie/game is utter shit.

 

lol at pron/RE voice overs comparisons, haha :D

 

anyways, like you said Danny RE went down hill ever since they made RE5.... if they want RE to be great again they should stick to the survival/thriller/horror recipe that made all the older games great, every shotgun shell counts, every inkwell is a treasure, every zombie encounter is a fight for your life.

 

I hope RE6 fails so that RE7 won't.

 

I'm sick of game companies thinking we all want mind numbing FPS games with boobs....

Gamespot's re6 smear campaign.  Shame on you gamespot . Maybe everyone at gs is angry because capcom only paid  famitsu and didnt care about crap sites like gamespot XD .

Okay, everyone at Gamespot is going to back up the old dude (Kevin). That's fine, I have to say "Hello," everyday to my douchbag boss, and smile. My point, Resident Evil 6 is a new game! It's does not say Resident Evil, RE 2, or 3 on the box. It's new game play. If anyone wants old school Resident Evil, then go play an old school game. Gamespot needs new game reviewers, a lot of reviews I read from you guys seem like you're being forced to play a game, and logically that unhappy forcefulness is reflecting on the attitude of your reviews.

hahaha "What're you buying?" I've actually been thinking of buying a game cube o_O always wanted to play that RE1 remake and RE 0

I'll also be buying RE6 sometime.

 

Thank you Danny, this was hilarious XD especially the puking part :P

I have good amount of counter arguement (more when you got to 4), but what ever. Almost seem you guy are doing a smear campaign with all this stuff about one game you guy don't like, so that this game won't sell?

 

Anyway there series need a reboot  period, for many reasons beside story and them getting back to the so call roots of what made the games so great in the first place. If the reboots doesn't work, then I really think it's about time to put the old dog down for good.

What conspiracy theories are you talking about? I didn't bring any on my comment. Agree the game is going to sell just base on the name itself mostly.
