This review is from: Resident Evil 6 Archives -Xbox 360 (Video Game)
Let me start by saying this: I've been with the series since the first game. Granted back then my brother and cousins used to scare me with it, I still played it straight on up until 6 now.
It's getting a lot of bad press, which is saddening. The series is not dying and the game itself is not bad. Sure, I wouldn't give it a 5/5 or a 10/10 but that's because it's not perfect to me either. I hate some of the storylines, especially one character and one ending. I hate how the split screen in Mercs is smaller than full screen (there's a huge gap space between the split screens and the sides). I don't like the new use of herbs. I loathe the L + R button combinations you have to make.
But I would recommend anyone who loves the series to give it a go. Don't listen to the professional reviewers at game magazines and websites. Form your own opinion.
Sure, the game isn't scary. There's a few jump moments when you first play through, but nothing that will give you nightmares. A lot of people complain the game is too actiony. I don't think so. There's suspense (not to be mixed with scares) and puzzles too. It has the feel of the old games with the mix of the new. Don't expect Resident Evil, or even RE2 and RE3. The games have been more action based since 4. It's nothing new for the series.
The menus take a lot of getting used to. And some weapons may be limited to some characters, but that isn't much of annoyance. Especially since melee is its own button, and yet not easy to abuse as you also have to focus on your stamina.
The costumes are a little cheesy, but when aren't they? The storyline is a little crazy, but when hasn't it been? All in all, I'd give it a solid 4/5 or 8/10. And again I urge you to play it, especially if you wanted to play it but have been turned off by the reviewers.
