This review is from: Resident Evil 6 Archives -Xbox 360 (Video Game)
I gave this 4 stars because it is a serious improvement over Raccoon City, but I think the negative aspects outweigh the good. The item menus are a mess, and you can't pause the game. These are game play issues and it seems like the developers don't use real-world testing on their games. I need to pause games, not to look up cheats or read the walk-throughs like some people, but because I have to pick up my kid at school. I also use a normal un-modded controller, and can't waste time scrolling through seventeen items for what I'm looking for. Herbs now have to be mixed and taken in pill form instead of the one button quick fix they used to be.

Aside from game play issues, I hate that it is now just a shooter and mutant bio-weapon freakshow. Bring back plain old zombies and in game challenges like mixing formulas and finding a save spot and a typewiter ribbon. I don't even think these developers ever played the original games. Even the familiar "Resident Evil...(#)" voiceover when you start the game is gone.

I've spent quite a few hours playing it in the various characters and as a time-killer its fine. As a franchise addition I don't see any value. The story is so forgettable I would have to read a synopsis in order to find one. When will game developers realize that classic formulas shouldn't be messed with and we don't all want CoD clones.
