Never before have a played a game with such a loss of identity. If this game can be classified as survival horror then so should all over the shoulder shooters. Where is the scare factor? This game does nothing in the way of new ideas to expand the Resident Evil realm. Nothing about this game is scary. If anything it should be classified under overly frustrating, driving, shooting game. Game play wise, it was your run of the mill 3rd person shooter. I found myself actually using melee more than shooting. Bosses were dull simple "Shoot the Glowing Red Spot" characters. Graphically it did not impress at all. It seemed as if Capcom spent more time trying to get the shooter elements down and rushed the overall look of the game. On the bright side, the way they split off all the characters into three separate quests where nice. It would have been nice to fight some zombies in more than Leons campaign. So, simply put, if your looking for puzzles, scare factor, and a great story then look somewhere else.

This game was fun. No where near as bad as critics made it out to be. Albeit there are some spots where camera gets annoying. About 3-4 in total. Game is definitely worth renting. After reading a few proffesional reviews it seem like most of the complaints stemmed from the game being difficult. For example they criticize quick time events but really they are only annoying if you are bad at them. I didn't even think they where worth noting till reading other reviews. And despite there being very few camera issues reviewers blew out of proportion. I think it because the few times it happens is when you can be killed instantly so again their inability to cope with the quick change during the game effected there enjoyment. That being said the game is solid 8-9 to but if you are bad at games in general or quick time events specicficlly, it might effect your experience with title.
Gave it a ten just to even out what I think is an unfair score the game has because it is not broken or anywhere near as glitch as other big name games. Rent it.

Resident Evil 6 was a well designed and all around decent game for the most part. As someone who has played each game in the franchise from the beginning this game was not disappointing. The overall feel of the game was reminiscent of RE:5 as far as general control. New features that have been added to the game primarily the feature of having more than one story line to play through is absolutely great! Almost like having three games in one. The re-addition of the all-famed zombies in the Leon campaign is something great to see back into this franchise; getting back to the roots that started it all. If you have enjoyed any other RE games, this is definitely a grab and an enjoyable title for anyone!
