Resident Evil 6 Game Review
Resident Evil 6. I believe I’ve waited about 3 years for this game to come out since beating Resident Evil. I downloaded the demo right away and loved it. Unfortunately prior to the midnight release I read probably the worse game reviews I’ve ever seen. One video game site rated it 0.1 out of 10. How in the hell do you give a game a 0.1? The demo alone was atleast a 7.5. As long as the game turns on it should get a default 5/10 I mean come on. I think Capcom pissed everybody off or something. Not to mention this is there most money making franchise and they’ve spent more money on this game than any other game produced by the studio. These reviews were just hurtful…. but not this one. This is a real review, my rebutal. My thank you to Capcom for making such an incredible game!
It really brings back the dark and scary tones to the game. Made me jump a few times but creeped me out most of the game except well lit daylight sections which just focus on the action capacity of the game. I still say they strayed more towards action but it is still a creepy scenario to be in.
The prelude to the game is amazing. Very intense, dramatic, and fast paced. Gonna be honest I was a little let down when you click start and the announcerr doesnt say “RESIDENT…EVIL…6!!!” like all the previous games do. And then I beat the prelude and he does it in a very epic way to officially start the game. Way to make us “wait for it” lol.
Alot of people complained about the controls. I like the convenience and less overwhelming focus on items and upgrades. Honestly my complaint would be the pause feature not being available all the time. I mean serious sometimes I have to step away to use my phone or the bathroom.
This game is jam packed with action, crazy scenarios and some pretty cool chase scenes . While their still a little stingy on the ammo side it helps you stay conservative and focus more on accuracy.
So far we’ve only beat Chris and Pierce scenario which is nothing short of amazing except one part I address in the spoilers below. Their mode alone could have been an entire game and I would have been satisfied but lucky for me Capcom was generous enough to give us two more to go. The confrontations between the other characters is incredibly well implemented in the game. I do like the characters but I think it would have been nice to give us Claire instead of Marlene, and Jill instead of Pierce but the guy really grows on you. The three different stories is also a great edition especially for a conclusion to the saga (if it is).
Scare factor 10/10
I give this game 10 out of 10 Staaaaaars! – (see what I did there)
Would have gave the story telling 10/10 but Ada’s “death” was random and I really hope it doesnt stick. I did get a good laugh out of it but I dont think thats what they were going for.
Would have also liked to see the return of Albert Wesker. Definitely one of my favorite characters of the series. If you beat RE5 in professional mode he emerges from the lava. He even came back in the Re5 movie
