RE6 - Good/Bad/Ugly

The Good:
- 4 long campaigns which can be played coop
- Graphics & sound were good
- Introduced several new characters (Piers, Helena, Jake)& brought back some old ones (Chris, Leon, Sherry)
- Run and shoot (FINALLY)
- Melee was fun
- Skill slots add variety to your character
- Additional game modes & features were nice (I really like the cutscene timeline they added)
- Ustanak was an awesome bad guy
- Lots of new enemy types

The Bad:
- A lot of the action sequences are way too over-the-top (nearing the point of ridiculous)
- Cover system is useless, I didn't use it at all
- Weapons feel good, but there is no customization and nothing really new
- Some people might not like the controls but it didn't bother me (it's RE which has always had weird controls)

The Ugly:
- Weird menu system that is different which each character and inventory management is an issue
- They still put lots of quick-time-events (QTE) in the game, I personally hate these

Overall, I liked the game. Most people will complain that it's not "survival horror" anymore... but it hasn't been survival horror since RE2 but who cares if the story and gameplay are enjoyable? It's inevitable that after 6 games (and countless sequels/prequels/etc) that "survival horror" games will turn into action games (see Dead Space 3 as another example). Most people will be good for a RENT or buy if you are a hardcore RE fan.

if you are a fan you must play it is a long game around 25 hours but good story line must play to see what will happen in the future.

Resident Evil 6 Review

I decided to give this game a chance and ignore the advice given by others. I made the mistake of playing Jake's campaign first. It nearly killed the entire game for me as I had virtually no interest in either Jake or Sherry. The saving grace of this game was Leon's and, to a degree, Chris' storyline. I was ready to give it up prior to playing through their respective campaigns. Visually, the game looks great and it plays well enough. The actually story was decent and the monster designs were mediocre at best. I'd say it was a lackluter entry in the franchise saved by Leon's chapters.

Pros
- Great visuals
- Solid sound design
- Entertaining Co-op

Cons
- Unresponsive Controls
- Uninteresting character design
- Boring lead in Jake
- Cumbersome melee mechanics
- Nearly forgettable story
