Very Good

Not Bad

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!

Weak

Trying not to be horror but action. . . and fails.

For fans of Resident Evil it is obvious that the horror element is nearly gone from this series. It is trying to go the way of an action series now.

Sadly the game fails at this and it is not just a simple fail. But an epic, glaring, red hot poker in the eye kind of fail.

The controls are VERY rigid and hinders the gameplay. Storytelling is weak since you are thrown in and have to "unlock" items to the go back to read about story.

One strong point of this game is the graphics. They are incredible. If the controls and storytelling were better this very well could been one amazing game.

Sadly, the flaws are too great with this game to really bring it back (pardon the pun) from its slow and fustrating death.

Unless you are a hardcore Res Evil fan this game is only worth even trying if there is nothing left to play. Honestly, hardcore Res Evil fans may be forced to admit the flaws are too much.

File this game in the coulda, woulda, shoulda been great category.

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.
