Resident Evil 6 review round-up: Critics divided on all-acti

Good to see some publications have the integrity to give it the thrashing it deserves, ive bookmarked 'polygon' for future reference because of their review.

I'd like to know what half these reviewers were smoking when they were handing out 8's and 9's for this game. Like Gamespot's Kevin Van Ord said in his review, the resi franchise has lost its way.

I'd give a left b*****k to just simply have an HD version of Revelations on the PS3 and 360 instead. That was a good game so it's a bit silly that 6 has gone to s**t.

I wouldn't give my own left b*****k, one of you lot can take one for the team instead.

At least some of those sites had the balls to say it as it is and give it the score that it deserves. Shame on you CVG.

The fact that you gave it an 8, yet you tell us that the game has 'zero scares' and you 'wouldn't buy it full price' is odd. Very odd.

Overall, not a game deserving of a place in any self respecting gamer's collection. By not buying this game we collectively send Capcom a harsh message. Remember your roots!

Well can hardly shoot some dudes reviewing a game for getting perks when elected officials do it on a much bigger more serious scale.

Both Joystiq and Destructoid are fine examples of how you both run a games site and do reviews, exactly the right mixture of humour and fact.

Both sites are on my bookmarks because over the years both have more than earned my respect as both an avid gamer and someone who appreciates well written articles.

CVG, IGN, OXM, every single one of the sites are advertising revenue based, think of them as basically the gaming worlds version of the SUN newspaper, the STAR and the MIRROR.

I applaud anyone who has the nuts to call a spade a spade and a pile of complete rubbish exactly that.

Oh by the way i have played it just in case you are interested, its absolutely no more than 4/10 and thats only based on some slightly well implemented ideas on Leon's campaign and even then im being kind, very kind.

I was just about to volunteer and then Paradaz pushed past with with his hand up..and i've got a signed bit of paper with his name on to prove it....honest squire :) . And to the forum poster commenting to the positive from his own experiance, i would say "how dare you, form your own opinion will you, you scallywag you" :) , although on reflection, probably a good idea, i actually really liked Resi 4 in co-op , although cant bloody finish the bastard thing.

Is the Resident Evil scare factor the only criteria to rate it?

If it's an 8 from the reviewer's perspective, then it's a logical statement to say that the developers don't deserve the full 70euros.

Destructoid: 3.0 - It's bad enough that the game -- at its very best -- is so pedestrian, but to screw up in areas that even third-rate shooters manage to get right is something Capcom should find degrading. It's not enough to say that Resident Evil 6 is poor as a Resident Evil game. This is unexceptional tripe that becomes insulting once the woeful missteps come into play. Resident Evil 6 is not just a step back for the series, it's a step back for common garden, unassuming action-shooters.


Thank you for having some b*****ks to tell the truth. And also thank you to a few other reviewers for being honest and having a backbone.


The rest of you that scored it 7 or higher should feel ashamed.
