Should i get Resident Evil 6?

I loved Resident Evil since its release on Playstation. I have played every major entry in the series and loved them all even 5. Is resident evil 6 so bad that a fan of 5 would not like it either?

It's definitely a divide. I'd honestly say give it a rent. It tries to bring a little bit of everything in one package, and I don't think quite excels at everything.

If you prefer the newer TPS shooting style, then you may be glad to know you can now walk and shoot simultaneously. The game is very much melee-focused, and the different campaigns highlight different playstyles.

I can say that I enjoyed it to an extent, but I don't know if I'd say it's better than 5.

No don't buy it. I'm a fan that has a open mind to the series and I thought it was horrible, so much that I traded it back in.

Depends,if you dont mind qte spamming maybe you will like it

the action and puzzle element is not really constant due to 3 seperate campaign
my grammar sucks and i dont care
disappointing game of the year = re6 (6.5/10)

if you're a fan of the series, go get it. It's not that bad, but honestly RE5 was better.

well I mean if u loved all the prior RE games and are a big fan of the series why would u even hesitate to not get RE 6? I would think RE fans have already played RE 6 by this time...don't understand why u would even ask

Too much action
Too many QTEs

I haven't played much (demo and some of Jake + Leon's campaign) but what I have played has turned me off entirely. I don't recommend it.
Why? Because **** you is why.

I've been a fan of the series since the first one on PSX. I enjoyed RE6 for what it was. Don't expect a return to form of the old games, but if you like action it's a decent TPS. I'd give it a 7 - 7.5 out of 10. I'd say rent it or at least download the demo. If you like what you play then pick it up. I was lucky enough to snag a brand new copy for $40 a couple weeks after it came out, so you might be able to find it cheap online if you look around.

Of course not. You should definitely buy it for sure. If you're a long time fan then I'm almost positive that you'll get some enjoyment out of it even IF (emphasis on the word "if") some of the gameplay elements turn you off. The interesting thing about Resident Evil 6 is that you will feel like the game is finally breaking free from gameplay limitations and that it's starting to feel like a real chaotic outbreak. If this game came out a long time ago it would have been a dream come true for fans of RE2 and RE3.

But as it is, after RE4 and RE5 already hit the scene, people can't look past the games flaws. I would say it's kind of living in the realm that Sonic Unleashed was in. Meaning, long time fans will have fun with the game because there IS some fun to be had with it. But the game definitely has some flaws that hard to overlook or ignore. It's unfortunate, but the game is like in the 7.0 or 7.5 range. Fans will enjoy it, but it's nothing special (like RE games usually are), and non-fans should definitely do some research, or rent it first to see if they do enjoy it.
