Why does everyone think Resident Evil 6 is so bad?

It's the fact that it's not really Resident Evil.

If you took away the name and named it something else it wouldn't have been as harshly judged.

As a game it's pretty great, even better with coop

As a Resident Evil game it's kinda sad


Another elitist...What are you even talking about? As a game its great but as an RE game its sad?!? How does this make sense?


Because the game is held to higher standards being part of an excellent franchise. It's like the Saints Row games. They are good on their own but if it was GTA: Stilwater then the game would get terrible scores because it would be an embarrassment to the superb quality of the GTA series.

yea, and that mentality is senseless...Same with the mentality that KOTOR 2 sucked, or that fallout NV sucked....a good game is a good game

I'm currently playing through it for the first time on co-op and... enjoying it immensely. I'm not a huge Resident Evil fan but played all since 4. Finished Leons campaign an midway through Chris'. It sucks splitscreen is the same as RE5 with the tiny boxes but it'll do for now til my co-op buddy gets their own copy.

If I was to pick one thing that I disliked... the cutscenes. I like a cutscene but when it gives you control after one only to go to another after walking 10 feet... what's the point? Just annoying and so frequent.

The part when Leon has to climb a rope really irritated me as well simply because I don't think the onscreen prompts were very clear but I eventually sussed it.

Having a lot of fun with it though, and look forward to seeing how the whole story plays out.

Because its not scary anymore. I still enjoyed the hell out of it, even with it lacking any scary moments.

res 6 was amazing most are trolls that exaggerate the flaws this game has or are people who live in the 90's who didn't get the memo and see the series was turning into an action franchise.

I don't understand why many think that those who DESPISE this game just can't stand evolution in gaming.

What the hell are you guys thinking RE6 is evolving into optimistically?

Into another bland TPS? You mean, to try and adapt to a genre that we have over a THOUSAND of on the market?

And there is also a difference of a franchise evolving correctly like RE4 and evolving back into a Magikarp from pokemon like RE6


every genre is saturated with games! Just because youre more bored of TPS than I am doesnt mean the game is bad

Also what about 4 was "correct" and what about 6 was "incorrect" They took the established gameplay from four and expanded on it further making, IMO, the best gameplay in any RE game...aside from the cover system that is, which i never even used


RE4 had simplicity. When they decided to make that jump into the TPS genre they understood that it was moving on from some of it's old mechanics while still having the RE formula.

Point is, they did something that aspired other game's such as GearsOfWar and Dead Space with the over the shoulder camera. Even at it's time it was something not many TPS did effectively. And it STILL felt like Resident Evil. Not to mention the subjectivity in my part in regards to it's memorable level design and good pacing compared to RE6's mediocre pace and exaggerated use of long QTEs.

It's all a matter of opinion of course but to any core gamer that can easily identify the poor execution compared to other TPS out there can understand this.

TC you gotta be kidding me. Tell me what does RE6 do right that other TPS out there can't do?

Graphics? Nah
Shooting mechanics? Nah
Story? Haha
Physics? No Engine
Detail? Joke
New Characters? BORING
QTE? Annoying

Please other than the coop experience what does this game do so AMAZINGLY that it separates itself from other TPS? It's a disappointment in regards to it coming from a company like Capcom who are considered a veteran in the gaming industry.


Dude... RELAX. I never got any indication from the TC's posts that he's even PLAYED the game yet. Stop trying to jump down his throat.

Okay, we get it. Ya hate Call of Duty; it's extremely popular. It's also not going anywhere. MOVE THE EFF ON.

The final boss battle in Leon's campaign made me quit playing. I'll play the other's campaign someday, but that was my biggest complaint of the game.

Resident Evil 6 is not horrible by any means. However, after the brilliance that was Resident Evil 4 (yes I know some may disagree, though know you are in a small minority) and the solid Resident Evil 5, Resident Evil 6 was just a disappointment. A lot more was expected.


this guy said it perfectly

lol, not even close, I don't even like Resident Evil. Resident Evil fans like the original ones. Six is basically like Gears of War, they've take all of the Survival Horror out of it. Now it's just an action game. At least the parts with Chris and Jake.

It's sad because there's no trace of the originals. They've even said they're done with zombies.


it is nothing like gears gears is a cover based tps you dont even need the cover in 6 its lke in 5 useless at best
