Grabbing my copy soon enough, rented and played some of it and enjoyed it. I have every other Resident Evil game so I need this as well.

Your $20 can go further on better games ... but if you want to experience the poor pacing, overbearing quicktime events, bizarre design choices (zombies with guns and another hulking thing that chases you that looks like a poor man's nemesis) and odd zoomed in aspect ratio for yourself, then by all means, don't stay away. It makes me sad to read that some fans of the old resident evils love this game, if that's the case then the series is lost because this game falls into the trap of trying to please everyone and, in the process, losing its spirit as a solid, well made resident evil game.


Oh, you're one of those people who think the J'avo are zombies. Did you think the enemies in 4 and 5 were zombies too?

The Resident Evil story had always been leading up to what we got in RE6. There was always an emphasis on making viruses to be used as weapons and that's exactly what happens.

QTE and camera were fixed in the latest patch. They even fixed the wonky crawling/climbing stuff so that you don't have to hold down the buttons.

Yeah, it would have evolved into a dating sim where you lurk the subways of Raccoon City* as Wesker trying to take upskirt photos of school girls.8-)

Any word if/when they'll be adding in PlayStation Move functionality? After RE5 Gold, it seems like they held it out only to save it for a reissue ("gold") version.

Of course, they kept it out of RE4 HD too. Capcom just doesn't make any sense...

I understand this isnt the RE game from the past. Those have been gone for years now and I have accepted that fact long ago. As for the wasting $20 thing, I dont want to be that guy but $20 really isnt much to me. I'll gladly pay $20 for a game that I have interest in. Sure I may hate it and if thats the case then I guess you would have been right. I cant write off a game though because one person on the internet cant stand it.

The camera was actually patched a couple months ago to be adjustable, but the QTE thing is maybe a couple weeks old as well as breaking the missions into chapters.

You still have to do the QTE's, but they're FAR more easier to complete now. The climbing and crawling is now trivial to do instead of extremely tedious. It was a welcome improvement.

Even at one playthrough, you're looking at what...a 30+ hour game which maybe cost about 40 cents per hour of entertainment if you trade the game in for $10? Entertainment at 40 cents an hour is a freaking bargain IMO. Don't let the detractors get to you.

Interesting, didn't know the patches were recent. My initial reaction was to stop playing it. Boring walking sections and obnoxious QTE combined with laugh out loud bugs/animations. But it's starting to grow on me. Can't believe the difference in feel between the 4 major sections and the game feels huge so far. Feels like they wanted to be more cinematic with this than RE4 or RE5. The weapons feel anemic but looks like you can upgrade abilities. If you enjoyed RE5 or have someone to couch coop with or play online with this could be worth $20.

I ain't gonna lie...the weapons still feel anemic even with the upgraded abilities.:lol:

But yeah, totally worth it for the couch co-op at 20 bones.

If you think DS3 keeps the franchise's survival horror roots, you will sorely be disappointed bud...


Yeah, I saw the reviews -- DS2 is IMHO the best SH game on the market today. DS3 is a new direction, and that makes sense given DS2 ended the main storyline for Issac. As soon as I heard about DS3, I feared that Visceral (and more so EA) would steer the franchise in a slightly different direction.

That said, I am glad DS3 retained the single-player option.

I don't know if I would count Dead Space as survival horror. It's absolutely horror, but it's more action horror to me. I guess everyone has a different take on what survival horror is though.

Well, it makes me sad that the fact I along with others enjoyed the game has made you sad.

You can enjoy a game and simultaneously provide feedback to the developers. If for some miracle that everybody boycotted RE6 like you wished them to, it is not guaranteed that RE will return to its formal glory, it might just die off. We should continue to support it while it struggles to stay relevant in the COD action dominated western market, not bash or hate.


Personally I would rather support the upcoming re-release of RE: Revelations, sending the message to Capcom that I support RE games that carry on the traditions set forth in 1-4. It's true, I don't think completely ignoring RE6 and not purchasing it is the proper way to show Capcom that it's a disappointment, but I would say that even at $20 this game still has significant issues, plot and development-wise that make me regret buying it at launch. With that said, I'm confident it will be a $10 Best Buy coupon game at some point in the near future and I might pick it up again to see the patch implementation.

I understand this isnt the RE game from the past. Those have been gone for years now and I have accepted that fact long ago. As for the wasting $20 thing, I dont want to be that guy but $20 really isnt much to me. I'll gladly pay $20 for a game that I have interest in. Sure I may hate it and if thats the case then I guess you would have been right. I cant write off a game though because one person on the internet cant stand it.


I would agree that $20 isn't much ... however it's my opinion that $20 could buy you part of an incredible experience like the new Fire Emblem or Skyrim's new add-on.

Oh, you're one of those people who think the J'avo are zombies. Did you think the enemies in 4 and 5 were zombies too?

The Resident Evil story had always been leading up to what we got in RE6. There was always an emphasis on making viruses to be used as weapons and that's exactly what happens.


The J'avo are just a bad design choice to justify making this game into more of a shooter than past REs. I actually despise this game more because it's the culmination of the other games and they took it in such a weird, over the top direction. For example, why are there giant monsters roaming the city that you fight in Jake's level ... are those really even explained? They don't seem to be controlled really, they're just roaming through the city. Things like that just feel more like blown out of proportion set pieces than narrative-building additions to the game. I realize that RE games have always had questionable narrative choices, but RE6 felt like Capcom sold out in order to produce a game that would appeal to Call of Duty fans, Halo fans etc. There's nothing wrong with the fans of those franchises, but they aren't Resident Evil.

Sure the game has hours of content ... but I would argue that a shorter, higher quality experience with talented voice actors and a top notch story would be preferred any day of the week compared to what was delivered in Resident Evil 6.

The giants are B.O.W.'s. Bio.Organic.Weapons.

Weapons.

The viruses are being used as weapons which is what Umbrella's goal was always in the past games. That's the tone the series always had, they just never showed you the other side of which which always disappointed me. I don't find it really farfetched that there are countries that would use such viruses or buy giant monsters for their armies. Makes complete sense to me just as with the BSAA sending more than just one person to fight them.

I've followed the Resident Evil games and story for a long time and nothing in the story seems out of place compared to the other games.


Also the voice actors do a great job, I don't know what your issue is with them.

There's an easy fix for this.

That's weird. Deleting users is a very simple process and shouldn't require a format. It's like deleting any other file. Might want to try safe mode and do the "file system optimization" or whatever it's called.

It's a better game than Raccoon City for sure, but it's really just not a solid, polished RE game. I hate the co-op stuff which is only OK w/ another person, the AI is terrible in this one. It's kind of a mess really.

That said, can't wait to finally play Revelations on the 360.
