Having just finished this game, I am a little confused about all the negative reviews. Yes the game is shifting away from the old school "Horror" theme that some fans me be used to. However, what makes this game great from a campaign perspective is that with 4 different unique characters the replay value is high. Beyond that every characters campaign is unique so you get a different feel for the game throughout.
The campaign is long and exciting and I for one was very pleased with it.
This game had alot, For hardcore fans it ended up being a slight let down, mainly because of the fact they changed the gameplay quite abit [in my point of view] I think playing it alone, is kind of boring though, playing Co-op with someone you know [or atleast mic] is quite interesting though, kept me going through it despite the fact i do not find much enjoyment in it, i think the "agent hunt" [where you are a special zombie type trying to kill agents as they play the story mode online] is awesome but, the problem with it is that its far to easy for the players to win and you to lose, other then that one mode flaw, this is a good game and if you are bored i'd atleast give it a shot
I've been a fan of the Resident Evil series for quite some time now. I was very excited to get a hold of RE6, and when I actually started playing I wasn't disappointed. However, I wasn't quite satisfied either. Luckily, I have friends and family who played through the entire game with me, making it much more enjoyable and chaotic than was probably intended. I did play through Ada's story alone, though, and it just seemed a bit stale to me. I think that if you have somebody to play with, this game is great. But if you try to go it alone, you'll probably find the game leaves much to be desired. The first story (Leon and Helena) was very good on it's own, but the rest (Chris/Piers, Jake/Sherry and Ada) get very repetitive and don't really change anything up besides the type of enemy you're facing (Zombies vs. J'avo). I would agree with other reviews that say Capcom has found a sort of comfort-zone in where the series is at and seem hesitant toward any major change, which is what needs to always be happening if they plan to keep this series alive.
The game is definitely a great experience when playing with others, but when playing alone it lacks the ability to keep me hooked, which is why I would only rate it as a 6.
