Resident Evil 6
Great World Design.
Intriguing narrative structure.
Uneven Game Design.
Loads of bad, overlong quick-time events.
Poorly executed scripted events lead to unavoidable deaths.

I didn't think it was possible but the Resident Evil games have gotten as loud, dumb and tiresome as the Resident Evil movies. Overcomplicated mechanics, a confusing, schizophrenic campaign split four ways and a ridiculous plot that doesn't just...49

The first and most important thing to say about Resident Evil 6 is something that’s been said plenty of times since the game’s console release last year: this is not a survival horror game. This is an action game through and through, a...-

CommentIt wasn’t until Resident Evil 4 that I actually loved a title in the Resident Evil franchise. Yeah, I’m one of those guys. Because of that it’s hard for me to avoid the comparison to what is, for me, the seminal game in the...62

Resident Evil 4 may have changed the world of video games, but unfortunately, other franchises made the best use of its ideas. Dead Space, Alan Wake, and even Gears of War were far more innovative than any Resident Evil game since. As a result, recent...70

Capcom's latest plays like a seven-year-old game, which is fine given there were some crackers back then. But, as seems to be the case in general with the triple-A side of the games industry right now, it falls down by skipping on the trickier, yet...-

But in the real world, we're left with what's in the box. It's hard to fathom how Resident Evil, which almost singlehandedly redefined the action genre just two installments ago, has now become such a strange, mediocre pastiche of the better games this series once inspired. What a bitter irony that is.40

Resident Evil 6 loses focus and fails to accurately assess which of its elements are truly worthy of being included. When this game is at its height, it sets new standards for the series in every way. Unfortunately, there are no shortage of lows either, taking what could have been an excellent experience and making it something considerably lesser.79

Series faithful might stumble through for the sake of story, and perhaps to appreciate those few moments that recall when Resident Evil was at its peak glory. But this long, poor sequel is the ultimate test of patience for even the most dedicated.45

Something went wrong somewhere along the line. The original idea might have promise, but in practice the game has failed. Threatens to be interesting sometimes, but rarely.30

Resident Evil 6 is an unwieldy tribute to the series' past, an uneven expression of its present and an unwelcome indication of its future.60
