Honestly, I went in to play this game with an open mind. Read a lot of mixed reviews overall, so I decided to see if the game could suit my wants..
All in all, I gave an 8 for review because I really really enjoyed Leon's campaign because it brought back the memories of the old Resident Evil's ability to scare the heck outta you when in darkness. Upon completing Leon's campaign, I tried out Chris' campaign and was disappointed that it turned out the same as Resident Evil 5. So I stopped without even completing the first chapter of Chris'... Nevertheless, I enjoyed the game very well to play a good 15+ hours worth.
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.
