    Resident Evil 6 recibe un 6 xd.
    No es un mal juego, es decir, es como Resident Evil 4 pero peor. No me gusta mucho la interfaz y a veces el juego es muy blando, con puzzles muy aburridos y poco contenido.

    Resident Evil 6 looks like a game directed by Michael Bay, It's not a bad game, but It's not what you expect from a Resident Evil game.

    Resident Evil 6 ... Unfortunately, whether you like it or not, it was a milestone in Capcom's most beloved and beloved franchise. He tried to please everyone and did not please anyone. First of all, the three campaign system is a good balcony if it was really well used, the connection between the stories are done majestically, but unfortunately, the story is shallow. The old plot ofResident Evil 6 ... Unfortunately, whether you like it or not, it was a milestone in Capcom's most beloved and beloved franchise. He tried to please everyone and did not please anyone. First of all, the three campaign system is a good balcony if it was really well used, the connection between the stories are done majestically, but unfortunately, the story is shallow. The old plot of bioterrorism we've seen in almost every episode of the series. The high point I believe you see in the campaign of Leon and Chris ... Jake I consider additional, a shallow story, without depth and totally forced. The graphics of the game in certain points are good. Beautiful and polished, however, under the light, end up showing bad textures. At least game performance is reasonable, with few frames falling. The gameplay strays a lot from the last two titles in the series, even keeping the camera behind its back, just like RE4 and 5, it tries to create a new style, With melee attacks and the possibility of counter. It would be a good idea if it was executed right. Frequent bugs take care of gameplay especially at important times. Just like the camera, it messes up at various times, causing even death.

    Music is a plus point of the game, as is dubbing. They are two things that meet and form a beautiful couple, taking the only suspense existing in this game that has a rampant action. A reasonable gameplay, a lousy camera, a shallow script, a pathetic villain, an unnecessary death, a good dubbing, and a good soundtrack.

    Resident Evil 6 in a way is a chaos, but marked the franchise. Capcom have learned with the mistakes and brought us now, Resident Evil 7: biohazard. A solid horror game. RE6 was not made the hype and brought more damage than profits to Capcom

    Resident Evil 6 is a mixed bag of a game. It features some great action set pieces, boss fights, and great graphics for a last gen title. But the game has many flaws that hold it back from being one of the best titles in the Resident Evil saga.
    The game features amazing graphics for a last gen title. The character and monster models are very detailed and so are the games many locals. The cutscenes are expertly done allowing the characters to show a variety of emotions as well as the action being excellently choreographed with the proper lighting. RE6 has great variety of monsters some of the best in the series. The sound is well done as well featuring the crunching splattering of the monsters and the heavy noises of artillery and explosions. The only gripe that can be found with the presentation is the occasional blurry textures and last gen motion capture on the characters.
    RE6 is broken into four campaigns each starring different characters. The game plays like an average third-person action shooter. RE6 is definitely a full action game and has next to no survival horror elements. The game is an overall good action game but fails to deliver some of the horror the Resident Evil series is known for. The first campaign starring Leon is easily the best of the campaigns by adding a little bit of horror and the best bosses the game has to offer. Chris also has a great campaign but is much more action heavy than Leon’s and features less impressive bosses. The last two Jake’s and Ada’s are easily the worst because they feature very little story and gameplay that has become repetitive by the end of the game. The game sprinkles in some quicktimes events which can be very annoying and frustrating and take away from the experience. If a player fails a quick time event it is an automatic game over and the player must start again. The game does feature some great set piece action moments that will put the player at the edge of their seat. RE6 can be extremely controlling at times such as forcing a player in a fixed position limiting their view and movement. There is also an inventory system that is extremely clunky that allows the player to craft healing items as well as switching weapons. Often the player will never need to heal due to how overpowered the player is at times. The game wills sometimes knockdown the player making it frustrating and hard to get up. This feature may have worked when the games were survival horror focused but RE6 is an action focused title which only frustrates instead of helps. RE6 has solid action gameplay but suffers from bad quicktime events and scripted moments that take away from the experience.
    RE6 tells a basic serviceable story that does not add anything new or exciting to the RE lore. The game stars four main characters and a co-op partner for each. Many returning characters make a return here such as Leon Kennedy, Chris Redfield, Ada Wong, and Sherry Birkin to name a few. The game takes place in many locations throughout the world where bio terror acts have been committed. The stories of Leon and Chris are well done but Ada’s and Jake’s are not with many plot issues never resolved. Overall RE6 tells a decent story that does well at showing different perspectives but suffers when it comes to telling a cohesive plot.
    RE6 is a basic action game that will keep players entertained but lacks the complexity to be something truly greatly. The game features bombastic action filled gameplay and a decent story as well as pretty good presentation for a last gen title. RE6 is worth buying on sale or as a rent but should not be bought at full price. RE6 is great disposable fun that can be enjoyed in a few nights.

    I do not understand why everyone criticizes this game so much? Leon's company - survival horror. Sherry and Chris - action, Ada - stealth. Yes, the plot is not drawn to a Hollywood movie. But all the same it is logical to end.

    A wide selection of weapons, which is more than in the Resident Evil 7.

    Resident Evil 6 is an extremely disappointing game in one of my favorite franchises. The story is so over-the-top and convoluted that it’s obvious that Capcom forgot what Resident Evil great.

Leon tries to be more of a horror/action game and is good for the first four chapters, but ends on one of the most ridiculous boss fights I have ever seen in the franchise. Chris’ campaign plays kind of like a military shooter and has some fun moments, but fails overall. Jake’s campaign had some fun moments but is straight up action and is just not very good. The best part of Jake’s campaign was the boss, Ustanak. He reminded me of Nemesis, but not as cool. Ada’s campaign is easily the most boring thing I’ve ever played in a Resident Evil game. It’s slower paced and there are puzzles, but Capcom still managed to screw that up. The only positives in Resident Evil 6 is the majority of Leon’s campaign, Mercenaries Mode, and the fact that it is a well made game in the sense of production values. Easily my least favorite entry in the main series and I hope Resident Evil will never hit rock bottom again. It's not the worst game ever, but it's definitely not good. Expand

    The same old Resident Evil 6 that we know with 1080p60 update and now includes all of the previously released DLC. Despite the revamped graphics, the flaws are still there and still not good enough for me.

    Resident Evil 6 was a real let down back in 2012 and it still is in 2018. The updated frame rate and resolution doesn't make this game any better than it was before. Just like the PS3 version it is painfully average.

    Resident Evil 6 is probably one of the worst RE games ever. This game can be summed up in extremely exaggerated action to the point of being ridiculous. The gameplay is bad, the characters feel awkward when you control them and the animations look silly but at least all of that makes it fun and maybe you can have a good time laughing at the game.

    Resident Evil 6 was probably designed by Michael Bay. This game has nothing to do with the known Resident Evil series and it doesn't feel like that it should be. All of the playable characters went to some wrestling school as well. Just feels weird and disappointing for a Resident Evil game.

    Probably less well received than the modern RE games and all of the other older RE games come to think of it? I dunno I still find the controls and combat mechanics a hell of lot of fun today as back in the day. Visually still looks alight yeah nice graphics and animations even in 2018. While 4/5 lacked zombies and classic RE monsters well 6 has a old school monster feel to it.

While 4/5 lacked zombies and classic RE monsters well 6 has a old school monster feel to it. Four individual chapters that feel a like whole game individually with several playable characters. The skill and weapon unlocks make replaying more fun and varied. A lot of content, fluid controls, fun progression, with high octane action set in the nightmare freaky universe of RE. That was my opinion on the 360 version.

    Nostalgia is a "B". So in today's day on the PS4 in 2019 the game has the constant annoying characteristic to switch between game play, cut scenes and in game rendered scenes. To then throw you back into to gameplay. That can be quite jarring and pulled myself and co-op partner out of the game when that happened. The camera angle changes even the positioning in the level can change and the enemy can cheap shot you.. Worst of all is those sprint chase/escape sequences. They tried to for a dramatic cinematic camera angle through most of those sequences, but it a technical frustrating nightmare mess to actually play those sections (even more so in co-op). The Chris and Piers level is probably the worst for that offence with four truly diabolically awful sprint chase/escape sequences.

    Summing up RE6 is a cheesy janky action game with hoaky dialogue, lots of QTE's and loads of scripted rendered/cut scene BS. Yeah mostly silly fun action nonsense with more than a few frustrating camera and control issues.

    Undoubtedly a release that gave a lot to talk about, but thanks to its low digital price I bought it back.

    For a RE it's very bad, it threw everything away (the little redeemable of RE 5) and it's a mix of Uncharted (in a bad way) + Call of Duty.

    As an action game it can work ( and it's not a 10 either), but thanks to its duration and its extras it's not boring.

    This port add 60 fps and 1080p function and all the dlc content that were released on previous generation, but it's unfortunately the same game from 2012, it was a bad game then and a bad game despite I enjoy it... Suggest you to buy it if you are a resident evil fan and follower d the saga in bad and good

    jugablemente el título no es muy destacable y el resultado general es mediocre, pero unos acabados audiovisuales de primera, contenido a chorros y el humor involuntario que causa como producto salvan a la obra de caer en el bote de basura.

    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]

    As expected, Resident Evil 6 — four years after its original release — remains one of the series’ most underbaked, underdeveloped and downright unappealing entries in a franchise that has claimed far greater heights in terms of gameplay and presentation.
