I like it. Better than I thought.
on August 17, 2014
Lol I was hesitant to buy this game because of all the bad reviews I read. I watched gameplay of this game online but even that didn't convince me that well. A lot of people kept saying the controls were bad, gameplay was bad and that the game took away the survival aspect of past RE games. Not to mention some said the game was too difficult. Oh well.
After almost 2 years on the market I decided to just take a chance on this game since I was bored with my current games and never played this before and since i am a RE fan and the fact I paid less than $10 for this game brand new I figured why not. I am not new to the RE serious although I never played any of the side RE games on other systems. I played RE1 back in 96, RE2 in 1998, RE3 in 99, Code Veronica on the the Dreamcast when it came out and then on the PS2, RE4 and RE5 and I loved each and every one. I own RE1, 2, 3 and code veronica on my PS3 and I have RE4, 5 and now RE6. I am not going to do an in debth review since so many others who liked this game said pretty much the same I will say.
Graphics: Very good. Nice shadows. Not a lot of lag, if any because I haven't experienced any
Sound: Very Good. Some sounds were recycled from previous RE games but it's nothing bad about it. I like the music in the game too.
Acting: Good. I can say that since RE1 the acting in all RE games afterwards has been much better.
Controls: Good. The tank controls are gone although I never had no serious issues with them. You use both analog sticks to move around. Like in other games AND YES YOU CAN FINALLY SHOOT AND MOVE AT THE SAME TIME!
Gamplay: Good. The game is broken in 4 campaigns. Leon, Chris, Jake (a new character) and Ada. They did a patch on this game so ADA is unlocked from the get go. No need to beat the first 3 campaigns first. Chris's and Jake's campaign have a lot of action. Leon's action doesn't pick up til about the 3rd chapter or so. Ada's is about the same as Leon's although her's seems a little more difficult plus she is the only one that does without a partner.
Each campaign is broken up into 5 chapters. Each chapter is about 1 hour long including the cut scenes. The story line is a bit confusing compared to other RE games. They took away the "notes" you would find in game that would tell a little bit more about what was going on. The game autosaves now, no more typewriters. The menu systems is different. In RE5 your weapon (or whatever you put in the slot) corresponds to the directional pad. In RE6 its a little similar but now everything has its place. Left and right on the D pad sorts through your aresonal. Up and down deals with your grenades and first aid sprays (yes, those are back lol) Your herbs have their own slot.
No more merchant and weapons can no longer be upgraded. You get skills that can help in combat. All characters have improved moves now. You can dodge punches yourself without waiting for a prompt like in RE4 and 5. I wouldn't say this game is an improvement over RE4 and 5. At least not to me. It's still good and better than I thought. Infinite ammo returns but this is the first RE game that I have played that does without an infinite rocket launcher. There is a LOT to do in this game though so it should keep you busy for a while.
