I don't think I like Resident Evil 6
*may contain some minor spoilers, so read with caution*
I'm definitely not a lifelong Resident Evil fan. The first one I ever played was RE4, and I actually just played that for the first time about a year ago. It's definitely an amazing game, my only complaint is that it felt a tad bit padded to increase the length. Soon after beating RE4 I played RE5 and enjoyed that one a fair amount. It had some excellent moments, but I felt the pacing was off in that one too, and it times I felt like it was missing a "survival" aspect.
So now I'm on to Resident Evil 6, and I've played almost half of the game. I've beaten Leon's campaign and just wrapped up the 3rd chapter of Chris'. Leon's campaign had it's bright moments, but was plagued with unnecessary QTE's. Chris' campaign doesn't have the QTE's, but it also doesn't even feel like a Resident Evil game. It's filled with action sequences, gunfights with the J'avo, and clunky cover-based shooting. In all honestly it reminds me of Gears of War with less precise cover controls.
I can't quite put my finger on it, but I think RE6 is missing the "survival" aspect even more, and that is what's making me dislike the game. I remember in action sequences in RE4 you could always evaluate your surroundings, check your ammunition, determine how long until you were attacked, and figure out your attack plan. In RE6 (mostly in Chris' campaign) you're instead thrown into a generic gun fight where you either have to take cover or strafe to avoid being shot. There doesn't seem to be any strategy left, at this point it just feels like another third-person shooter.
So, any recommendations on if I should even see the game through? Like I said, I beat Leon's and am 3 chapters through Chris' campaign. I enjoyed Leon's campaign significantly more, and Chris' campaign is really starting to feel like a grind. How are Jake and Ada's campaigns? More comparable to Leon's or Chris'? And what are your guy's opinions on the game?
