*spoilers I suppose*

Sherry was a dropped ball on Capcom's part considering her backstory. She has like 1 line in the cabin talking about how her childhood was ruined from her parents' obsession. Steve was a similar situation but they managed to change him as the story goes on from cocky moron to well intentioned screw-up to last minute redemption. Sherry gets no such treatment. She stays the same throughout the story.

They want to make her a 'kawaii' character and the most effective way to do that would be to also make her the well developed 'woobie'. (go to TV tropes if you want proper definitions of what those are.) However you never get a sense of her vunerabilty from a shaky past. All you see is a girl that's in over her head for most of the game.

She could have been the 'break-out character' of the series ESPECIALLY since we haven't heard from her since RE2 and was speculated to be in RE5. Making her the annoying escort from the earlier games to a competent replacement for the original cast would have been a great move. However she shows little confidence or leadership skills. It wouldn't be so bad is she wasn't supposedly trained and 28.

Go to 6:40 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zruKkJ66tA It's hard to not crack a smile and show pity at her TRYING to show some sort of authority but acts like the new girl in school. It's almost as if it was her first time ever even showing identification. I'd hate seeing her go into a bar. The bartender wouldn't believe she's over 21 especially with the way she acts/looks.

Having Jake be her sidekick only makes matters worse at proving her to be a 'faux-action-girl'. If he's not catching her from being pushed by a GUST OF WIND he's tackling her to avoid a piece of debris and saving her from helicopters. Steve did similar situations with Claire but she also saves his ass by using her brains to get him out of a trap/saving him from falling.

That's what made Steve and Claire play off each other much better. They'd both need help and would get each other out of situations. There was no expense paid to either character's competence because they helped each other consistently. It's more one sided in Jake's favor in this game despite Sherry being the supposed authority figure. Hell Steve and Jake are younger than their respective partners yet Claire proves of more use to Steve even though she's only 19 and untrained.

I know I'll be flogged for this but Capcom made Sherry more of a dumb blonde or at least a klutz in this game. Maybe they WANTED her to be the character the male characters felt inclined to protect and sympathize for but in doing so they made her a weak character from a physical/mental/story point of view. Her and Jake are overkill for the audience they are targeting.

Guess I better exchange my flame-rounds from the inventory box and pick up the flame-shield....

I think I'll probably receive a well earned tl:dr....


Oh well, not much else to do when it's your night off from graveyard shift.

Capcom fails at telling a story for the most part. A lot of the crucial plot elements of RE6 are lazily shoved into files. If there so lol "important", why the hell are they hidden and why can't they show them in-game?
