I have loved resident evil and have played everyone starting from one and even read the books on the series. Which are well written but this game is just awful the franchise is nothing what it started out as 3 was the last good game although 4 was amazing they weren't zombies anymore and it was still fun but by god this is a load of (I can't say what I want). racing? having to climb a rope? and the story is awful I just can't make excuses anymore I am done with the series

Longtime RE fan... When I played the demo, I hated it. Didn't like the "zombies" wielding weapons, didn't like the controls, didn't like that it wasn't survival horror. After a few hours of playing, it got better and better. Once you get used to the controls, the game gets much easier. Unlike RE4 and RE5, the aspect of "survival horror" also plays a part (not like I initially thought) since you have to rely on melee or hand to hand combat quite a lot in the game. Ammo doesn't just fall from the sky like the last 2 RE games.
I don't get the people that rate the game at 1. One reviewer said that it's a "slow jog" all game. I guess that gamer know that there's a sprint button in the game. Another gamer, who also rated the game a 1, stated that the cursor is too slow. I honestly think it's at the right speed, if you think it is too slow, then you are a horrible gamer and just need to stop playing games that requires shooting and aiming.
Some reviews also rated it lower due to too much button-mashing sequences and cut-scenes. The people that say this obviously have not played the game more than 10 minutes.
Does it deserve a 10? Nope... but giving it a 1 is absurd. I would give this game an 8 because they could have added things to make it better. The only reason I rated it a 10 is to counter some of the undeserved 1's out there.
3-4 years to create this game was wasted. Mass marketing appeal to western gamers has ruined everything that made RE good in the 1st place. It's core gaming experiences have been completely ripped apart and are replaced with some generic garbage that Japanese developers think we Americans want.
RE6 more than anything resembles some over-the-top Michael Bay explosion film. It takes you through 3 campaigns - Leon, Chris, and Jake. Each is more ridiculous than the next, filled with nothing but horrible plots, boring timed button sequences, boss battles, and more explosions. There is no open world, no exploring, and no side quests, no intense zombie moments, or anything that resembles what RE is.
How do you hack up a great franchise this bad??? I'm no RE fanboy, but now I see why all the critics ripped this game a new one. All the character dialogue is just filled with terrible meathead one-liners that Japanese developers think we Americans talk like.
RE5 proved co-op play works in the RE model for game design, but this is no fun at all even with a partner. I can't think of a single positive element to the game. Even the new cover system they developed is horrendous and awkward.
You're going to be wondering what the heck is going on half the time too. You'll be walking and then some giant Gears of War like skyscraper of a zombie boss will appear out of nowhere, leaving you saying "what is that, where did that thing come from, and how do I kill it?"
Fanboys beware of RE6, and newcomers don't expect anything resembling a crumb of what Resident Evil has been in the past. Picture just running through narrow corridors, avoiding explosions, and trying to find ammo (unless you opt for the infinite ammo option in the game settings)...what the heck is a RE game with an option for infinite ammo?!? These games aren't supposed to be a breeze, rather a challenge of survival. SKIP THIS GAME and wait 4 years until the next one.
