RE5 mercs vs RE6 mercs

#1DarkkefkaFFXPosted 1/16/2013 10:01:43 PM(edited)
You know guys..I've become to LOVE re6 merc. much more fun than the main game to the point where I don't even play the main game anymore.

I've had RE5 and Re5 Gold since they came out..but I NEVER really got into the merc in re5. I only did it a few times with Chris to unlock stuff thanks to his rocket launcher. Am I missing out?

I used rebecca a few times. i think she would be my main if I got back into re5 merc.

There is no such thing as a "Quick Time Event done right".
A game that has Quick Time Events is a "video game done wrong".

I never liked Mercs in RE5, but I think it's more to do with the characters and locations rather than the gameplay (I loved RE4 Mercs, which is the same minus melee kills giving you bonus time).

The faster pace of RE6 is better suited to a mode like Mercs if you ask me. Previous Mercs games were far less cheap, but whatever. All RE6 Mercs needs now is a mode without a timer, some extra characters like RE5 Reunion had (Claire, Jill, Barry, etc.), and possibly some more maps.

Claire wasn't in RE5 Mercenaries, I don't think, but she was in Mercenaries 3D.

I personally think this Mercenaries blows compared to RE5. There scoring system is lousy, the game revolves around just countering and CDG. Maps in general are boring. Having a huge artificial difficulty spike towards the end is irritating. Nothing is more awesome than having a good run ruined because of one mistake.

RE5 is repetitive, but characters and strategy differed based on level. There was also a nicer progression in score as you got better.
