I think most of the bad reviews for this game come from cod fans who don't like change, they would rather play the same game year after year. As you all know resident evil has been changing since resident evil 4 released back in January 2005. Although i love the original resident evil style, i think the changes they made were necessary to keep fun and diverse game play. The biggest change which is switching the camera angle to a third person over the shoulder view really makes game play alot easier and less frustrating . Resident evil 6 took this and added to it to give you more control over your character as now you can dodge , duck , dip , dive and dodge as you shoot through hordes of a wide variety of enemies not just brain dead foe. Another change that was made that i thought was very useful is hand to hand combat, as we all know ammo can sometimes be scarce in resident evil games so having another means to kill is warmly welcomed :note resident evil 4 and 5 started to include this but it was limited to counters. Now you can start brawling with zombies anytime you want instead of having to time the counters. Anyways i could go on alot longer but the main point im trying to make is change is good and thats what this game has done success fully. I recommend renting this game if not buying it because it has a great coop (even split screen which is rare now days) and great replay value do to the returning mercenaries mode. 9/10

Such a disappointment.
The good stuff. 4 Campaigns! YES! All Co-op! Totally awesome.
Leon: Okay, classic character. The closest thing to resemble Zombies in a RE game since 4. Helena is okay. Still not scary.
Chris: Okay, classic character, no more muscles. Drinking problem!? Piers is... unimportant. J'avo are awful. All action, everyone compares it to COD and they're not wrong.
Jake: Not too bad. A little ridiculous. Nemesis guy is no Nemesis, but a decent attempt I suppose. Shelly is offsets Jakes ridiculousness by being rather useless. But whatever. J'avo still ruin everything.
