This poll is now closed.
i'm still on the fence if i should shell out the greens for a copy of re6. So i decided i should base my decision on fellow gamers here if i should buy or not. I need atleast 20 votes for a definitive outcome... so what's the final verdict fellas?

Judging from your first poll choice, can I assume you do are a RE fan?

In that case you need to take into account that this game is more action-oriented than previous RE games, following the trend of RE4, RE5 and RE:ORC. The horror element of older RE games is notably absent.

If you were looking for something more similar to an old-school RE game, I would recommend that you buy Resident Evil Revelations. It was praised by the critics as the closest we have seen to the older horror-oriented RE games in years. It came out last year for 3DS, and an improved version will come out in May for PC, PS3, WiiU and 360.

That said, I suppose that regardless of your preference, $20.00 for a new game that was released just 4 months ago is quite a good offer as JRS511 said. Normally it costs $30.00 though:

A new copy of 1 year old Resident Evil: Revelations also costs $30.00:

The new version for 360 already appear in the store as well:

Finally, if you are into action-oriented RE games, you should also check:

If you're a RE fan, sure. Especially as the price has dropped. I love the game, got it on day one and am still playing it.
More and more, I find myself wondering if it's all worth fighting for...for a future without fear...yeah, it's worth it. (Chris Redfield)
