    After a hundred hours spent with RE6 I’m still hungry for more. While others complain that Resident Evil reached the gutter, I’m in love with the Mercenaries mode and superb combat system that lets you create unbelievable encounters. [06/2016, p.59]

    Resident Evil 6 looks great running at 1080p and 60 FPS. Capcom's game comes fully loaded, with all of its content available from the very beginning, which guarantees many non-stop hours of fun. Probably not the best game of the series and it doesn't offer any changes besides the visuals, but it offers action and enjoyment without complications, being the most ambitious Resident Evil entry in the franchise.

    The same game we played on PS3 and Xbox 360, but with better graphics and all DLCs included. Focused on action, it moves away from terror to search the spectacle.

    Even with a lifting on current-gen consoles, this is STILL Resident Evil 6 my friends, an action-focused third person action game... take it or leave it, but don't expect a good, old “Resi”.

    A bold but ultimately damned experiment, the game unfortunately does not offer any huge benefits in its PlayStation 4 re-release.

    Even though it looks more beautiful and crisp on this generation of consoles, Resident Evil 6 continues to be a game with a lack of identity and many, many problems.

    It’s not enough to say that Resident Evil 6 is poor as a Resident Evil game. That alone implies there could be a quality experience if fans can get past their preconceptions and feelings of betrayal. No, Resident Evil 6 is poor by the standards of any game, not just the high ones set by its own legacy.

    Fantastic port of the PC version to PS4. Frame rate is rock solid. Overall experience much better than the PS3 version. Like many great games,Fantastic port of the PC version to PS4. Frame rate is rock solid. Overall experience much better than the PS3 version. Like many great games, RE6 has minor design niggles, but the overall experience is so amazing and rich that they're easily forgivable because none of them are really significant. Grand Theft Auto San Andreas had some horrid, frustrating missions, and I wouldn't hesitate to give it 10/10, so I don't hesitate to give this game 10/10 either.

    Hopefully the game gets a fairer reception this time.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Absolute Masterpiece. Many engaging Boss Battles keeps everything fresh, it's like I've played at least 3 games in one.
    More games should take note from the number of boss battle in this game.
    Also the action is intense, I love it. They could lower just a bit of the unrealistic action, come on, a plane liner crash and you're telling me Leon is just fine? I could do with less "near death" scenarios as they've been overdone. However as far as combat, story line and boss battles, this is the peak of the series so far.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. its a very interesting game that's loads of fun, it has interesting and unique characters. some chapters are complicated which makes the game more fun. you can collect so many things in the game, its purely amazing. such as emblems, medals, even more medals on different modes, guns etc. it has so many difficulty settings and you can even play it online with friends and strangers. the characters all have backstories and the lore in this game is amazing, you think you know it all and boom even more comes, its an amazing feature and im glad that much effort was put into the game, it shows that capcom is a talented video game company. resident evil is one of my favorite franchises and the games are all amazing in their own way, some may be better than the other ones but it depends on the person, some might like this game over that game or the opposite way, in my opinion resident evil 6 is my favorite resident evil and i think it's very underrated, it has an amazing storyline and so many things to do in the game.

En este juego es puroEs un resident Evil menos parecido que a todos los de la saga, aquí la munición o la salud ya no era la preocupación. En este juego es puro frenetismo con acción constante con bastante variedad de enemigos según los escenarios que tocaban. 4 campañas con una duración de unas 5 o 6 horas por campaña que se puede jugar individual, pantalla dividida u online con un amigo (recomendad para una experiencia mejorada). Aunque algunas misiones sean recicladas de otras misiones al coincidir en las campañas, no ha estado normal y la historia se entiende a lo largo de las 4 campañas. Expand

    A cooperative shooter with a terrible pace of storytelling and tedious gameplay. From resident evil there are only characters. Dead end forA cooperative shooter with a terrible pace of storytelling and tedious gameplay. From resident evil there are only characters. Dead end for the series. It's funny how many people evaluate this part better than modern ones, while it is a primitive run from door to door and shooting everything that comes in the way in huge proportions. Expand

    What did I play: Survival horror or Hollywood action movie?

    I think fans of the PS1 classic trilogy immediately drew conclusions about this part of RE.

    Alas ...
