i gave this game a 7 out of 10. bad things were that the game had very high disturbing scenes and game AI. Good things were that the gameplay was good. One other bad thing was that alot of events kept on happening over and over again like it was never going to change story scenes or events.
I wish the game was how RE1 was with finding clues and atrifacts to solve a puzzle to open different doors and new areas. It made it more intresting and had a different feel to the game. This game is pretty much in a different type of genre as a shooter actaion game like ORC. With that said this game looks amazing and you get used to the controls which arent even that bad. The story is intresting and having alot of fun doing coop. This is a buy for me
First things first. I am not a RE expert. I haven't followed since the first game release, I don't salivate over upcoming releases, I don't make it my life mission to every exact detail about every playable minute. That said, I do know a thing or two about the series.
And what is terribly disappointing is the fact that if you dropped the infamous RE title, dropped the names of the main playable characters, what you are left with is a pretty generic sci-fi shooter game.
A virus turns people in monsters, enter gun action and dark spaces and you're all set.
But this is supposed to be Resident Evil. I understand the change, the game evolving as the world of gaming evolves as well. Younger people are getting into the game, younger people are expecting a certain style: Put me in an area, give me a direction to go, do not allow me to go back after checkpoints, and my God give me away to use lack of brainage (made-up word) to do things on my own.
All I have to do is press a button to fire a gun and I'm all set.
From what I said at the beginning, I am familiar with classic RE survival horror drama. You're enclosed in a rather large space with winding hallways and dark shadows and doors. You'll have to go back and forth to find items, locate clues, defeat enemies, meet characters. I'm out of bullets! I have no more ink to save at the typewriter! WHAT DO I DO?
A drop of a pin, what was that? Heart pounding, blood-pressure rising, and just when you're about to die of an actual panic attack you advance to the next room, break the code, beat the puzzle.
Resident Evil 6 has nothing of the sort.
It's a game with an incredibly interesting concept depicting a purposefully viral outbreak of a virus nicknamed after a letter of the alphabet. Chaos ensues.
Someone wants to take over the world.
The monsters/J'avo and mutated beast are pretty impressive.
The storyline, even with Ada's secret campaign: lackluster.
