"Leon, Chris and Jake=awesome Resident Evil"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

There are a lot of mixed reviews about this game, so it really comes down to your preferences when it comes to purchasing this game. I got this title because I'm a RE fan: not a hardcore one, but enough to pre-order the game without a second thought. Let's look at the controls: Shinji Mikami really changed the feel of Resident Evil by borrowing elements from his “Vanquish” title and it actually was not bad: I thought the cover system was a great idea, and the ability to melee is another feature I enjoy. Mercenaries mode is as fun as ever, and I've only played through Leon's story and so far so good. The only concern I have with this game is that they completely took away the ‘horror’ factor: which is what they wanted in the first place anyway. It's honestly a fun game, and if you liked Resident Evil 4 and 5…this is worth the buy.

Oh btw…

don't worry, I reckon the game is a bajillion times better than the RE: Damnation and RE:Afterlife films -_-"

"An interesting development to the series"
4 stars"

After finishing Resident Evil 5, I admit this was not how I expected the series would continue. Though I am still satisfied with the majority of it. The return of Leon S Kennedy and the highly graphic combat system would probably be my highlights. The three story lines revolving around Jake, Chris and Leon are also an interesting layout to the game, despite making it feel slightly segmented. Overall, well worth it. A must have for RE fans in general.

"Do you LOVE Quicktime Events-!"
1 stars"

If you do this is the game for you! Looks and sounds great but swiftly deteriorates into one QTE after another linked together with cut-scene after cut-scene. My advice is play RE4 instead because that's where the franchise peaked and its all downhill from there

"Different Move yet still good"
5 stars"

A different turn for the Resident Evil series yet still not a bad game. Whether new to the series would have some trouble understanding whats going on but if your a long time fan definitely worth checking out.

"More Traditional"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Resident Evil 6 is an excellent combination of the mechanics of 5 and some of the more traditional elements of the Resident Evil series.

RE5 was an interesting take on the franchise, but its unusual environments and different approach to ‘survival horror’ made in less enjoyable for series fans. RE6 takes the shooting and movement mechanics and places them back into a more familiar environment (mostly the dark).

There is still quite a heavy reliance on quick-time events, which does distract from the immersion. The opening sequence is almost entirely a QTE, but this changes pretty quickly.

Co-op is still an excellent mode, but some elements could be made more in-depth in regards to using two players, some combat situations could be made more elaborate and entertaining by focusing on the two players.

The mechanics are excellent, the story and environments are much better than 5, and the amount of content is massive for a Resident Evil game.

All in all, a very solid effort, without being groundbreaking.

"Twenty bucks is about right."
2 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

It’s not as bad as most of the reviews indicate, it’s just unnecessarily frustrating in some respects. For instance the game only saves every twenty minutes or so! It checkpoint saves regularly in case you die, but if you quit you can’t load those saves. You have to wait for a save game (the little type writer comes up)… And it only does that every twenty minutes. And a little thing like a flashlight would have made a big difference. It’s dark nearly all the time, and although you have a flashlight you only use it in scripted areas, you can’t use it at will. Why the hell not- And not being able to drop guns you don’t use to free up space in your inventory, forcing you to drop ammo or precious healing items.

I had some difficulty with the camera and controls. There’s a lot of melee combat in very enclosed spaces, unfortunately the camera is completely unsuited for this. Instead of it pulling out a bit to allow for some situational awareness, it zooms right in so you can’t see what you’re doing, and bobs in and out as you get close to or move away from objects. This led to some very frustrating battles. And your character moves too sluggishly. There are times when I saw an attack coming and there was nothing I could do about it because I couldn’t get out of the way in time. A dodge control would have been handy there. I would have spent a lot less time getting knocked down. You get knocked down a lot in this game. A LOT.

The QTEs are a pain but they’re not as frequent as they are in the tutorial sequence.

I’m pleased that zombies make a return, at least in part of the game. I was never really a fan of the la plaga infectees of 4 and 5. The game is quite challenging on normal, and I’m glad to say it hasn’t introduced auto health regen like nearly every other modern game. You still need to find those herbs to raise your health.

Leon’s campaign is traditional Resident Evil, but it turns into Call of Duty with monsters for Chris’s campaign. That is not what I want in a Resident Evil game. And the camera and controls are woefully inadequate for that kind of intense action. I didn’t really like fighting the mutant gangster BOWs. Give me back my zombies!

Finally, I would have liked it if the campaigns had a better lead in or intro so I knew what was going on. When you start Leon’s campaign you’re in the president’s office witnessing him transform into a zombie. A little context would have been nice. Why were you there- How did the outbreak get started- Why does the president of the US have his office in some old, dilapidated collage campus- Context would have helped me get more engrossed in what was going on.

The good: Good characters you actually care about and solid voice acting. Zombies. Challenge. Length.

The bad: Not enough zombies. Too many QTEs. Too many things you have to do exactly right or you automatically die. Getting knocked down so often. Not enough story lead in. Sluggish controls. Poor camera angles especially when the camera changes perspective during escape sequences. Too much respawn.

Description

Blending action and survival horror, Resident Evil 6 promises to be the dramatic horror experience of 2012. Resident Evil favorites Leon S. Kennedy and Chris Redfield are joined by new characters, including Jake Muller, to face a bioterrorist threat on a global scale, as the narrative moves between North America, the war-torn Eastern European state of Edonia and the Chinese city of Lanshiang.

Resident Evil 6 features three distinct, yet interwoven story threads, each with their own pair of protagonists for either solo or co-op play, both offline and online. Leon S. Kennedy is paired with US government agent Helena Harper, while Chris Redfield teams up with fellow BSAA member Piers Nivans. Finally, gun for hire and son of the infamous Albert Wesker, Jake Muller, is joined by Sherry Birkin, the daughter of former key Umbrella scientists, William and Annette. All six must face a new horror – the highly virulent C-virus that has been unleashed on an unsuspecting and unprepared world, creating new and deadly transformations.

Features:

  • Horror on a global scale – No longer confined to a specific location, the outbreak of the C-virus is worldwide with the action taking place in North America, Eastern Europe and China
  • Multiple characters and intertwined storylines – Experience the horror playing as Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield, and Jake Muller with their respective partners
  • Solo or co-op – Resident Evil 6 delivers both single and co-op gameplay either offline or online
  • A new challenge – Confront the results of the C-virus in all its varied and deadly forms
    • Zombies make a return to the Resident Evil series, but can now run, jump at players and even use weapons, making them far more challenging than in previous games
    • The enemy creatures known as J'avo first came to prominence in the conflict zone of Eastern Europe and have the ability to regenerate when injured; furthermore, if J'avo take substantial damage to a particular area, they can mutate the affected body part into a variety of different forms, meaning players will have to rethink their strategy and adapt to this unpredictability
    • The C-virus has also given rise to the Chrysalide, which take the mutation process even further as they can undergo a full metamorphosis; spawning a whole host of horrific creatures
  • Mercenaries returns – Players will once more be able to enjoy the highly popular Mercenaries Mode
  • Redesigned control system – Resident Evil 6 features an evolved control system allowing players to shoot while moving; slide; roll in any direction and to take cover, along with the addition of an enhanced melee attack
  • Localized voice over – Resident Evil 6 will include fully localized voice over in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian as well as subtitles in Japanese, Russian, Polish, Brazilian and Portuguese
