Hit and Miss

I'll start off by saying that this game is fun in Leon's campaign, but not so much in the other campaigns. However, despite this, this game has more negatives than positives.
Pros: Nice cut scenes, pretty good graphics, some cool new controls like rolling, and a great campaign for Leon.
Cons: Camera Angle is too close, the other campaigns are simply tedious and uninspiring, boss fights are pretty lame, quick time events ruin the game if you don't use a specific skill to make them easier, boss fights are easy, enemies aren't as scary, and the overall story isn't that good (ok endings).

For instance, Chris's campaign has you fighting bio terrorists with guns which is more annoying than fun and best resembles a COD wannabe. In Jake's campaign, most of the time you are running and fighting the same bio terrorists which gets old pretty fast. Overall, if Capcom only focused on Leon's campaign, ditching the other ones, this game would have been a lot better. At best it is worth a rent for Leon's campaign. Other than that, it is not worth buying.

Survival Horror needs to make a comeback.

Survival horror needs to make a comback and this was a fail. This game was pure action, and no horror. No puzzles? seriously? that is what makes a resident evil game. Being able to revisit areas. The graphics are great. The action scenes were neat... but how many lives does Leon have for christ sake? This game had too much action to the point of irritating me. I had some fun, but mostly, I was peed off and annoyed. I miss how previous Resident evil games made you use your brain to use strategy and figure out puzzles. The gameplay was harder but that also made it more challenging and therefore better than this mindless crud. I gave this game a 6 because that is probably the amount of times I actually had fun playing this game.

Resident Evil 6 will be set in China, a coastal town called Lanshiang in the year 2013 & there's No Hope Left. Like RE5, RE6 will feature a coop story mode that can be played online. In this reviting tale RE6 let's you play as 6 lead characters & 3 distinct storylines that can be played independently & weaved together. It is up to you to play RE6 & put the puzzles story together. You can play as Legend Survivor Leon S. Kennedy & his partner Helena Harper to play the game in a sorta classic RE suspense. If you're into action & tactics then Legend Chris Redfield & his partner Piers Nivens story shall keep you busy. If thats not what you want then Jake Muellers son of Albert Wesker & his partner Sherry Birkins will leave you at the edge of your seat in this thrilling campaign. There is a 4th campaign which lets you play as Ada Wong a RE4 favorite & rival of Leon which overlaps from the others & adds more depth to the overall narrative. The Story is somewhat acceptable, Gameplay is a little clunky but overall okay. Combat has gotten some changes but doesn't go well with the game. Capcom has added Customisations to control you're RE6 playthrough. Camera control is the most frustrated issue & so is the HUD but you can customise you're HUD to how much info you wish to see & customise your aiming reticle. In-game Menu Settings is weird but takes time to get use to. A.I. Partners have improved but sometimes can be a little off & Aim Assist kinda sucks. CG looks great but sometimes shows some tearing during a cutscene. Multiplayer will be the same but 1 added feature is the new Agent Hunt Mode where you'll get to hunt down human players as J'avo Creatures but this feature will be unlocked once you've completed the main campaign. RE6 has its ups & downs but you gotta give credit to Capcom for going back to its roots. While there won't be any different endings to the 4 campaigns in RE6 Capcom hopes you will at least enjoy the game & have fun. Resident Evil 6 gets a 7 out of 10.
