I personal do not like it. RE4 is awesome even today. It had a unique shooting mechanic thats very well implemented and suited the action well. What we have here is a very cinematic but average at best TPS.
I don't want to write a 5/10 review for a game I grew up loving. But here I will summarize how I feel after finishing 4 campaigns and played over 6 hours of mp.
PROs: -very good graphics -length sp -high production values -very cinematic -mp fun
CONs: -degenerating TPS gunplay (feels worse than RE5) -some missions repeat (padding imo) -mercs need overhaul or some form of major improvement -VERY POORLY WRITTEN NARATIVE for such a long game -too many badly allocated QTEs -laughable driving sequences -still crappy inventory systems (RE4's was so good)
As you can see, some of the cons are really serious. At first I was shocked by the 4.5 gamespot gave, but after I did leon campaign on professional, I can clearly see his frustrations.
Very dissapointed long time fan here. Sadly got to say, this game is not better than the movies. i guess I'm just venting becuase I know I will have to wait many years to see RE7 and there's no guarantee Capcom will address this issues. Sometimes i don't even thank they care.
You grew up loving RE6!? How young are you!? :P --- In blackest day, in brightest night, Beware your fears made into light Let those who try to stop what's right, Burn like my power*... Sinestro's might!
