    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.

    I would actually rate this a 9 but I believe this game is the most under appreciated game I’ve ever known about. I want to help offset allI would actually rate this a 9 but I believe this game is the most under appreciated game I’ve ever known about. I want to help offset all the unnecessary zeros and other low scores. Yes I understand this is more action, Michael Bay based, and very un-survival horror like the older entries. That’s not always a bad thing, I’m glad they decided to go with one last action based RE game before going back to more survival horror like in 7 and remake of 2. Games are played because they’re fun, and I would have to say the gameplay in this is the best of any RE game-being able to move and aim/shoot, dive, roll, and melee at will. Yes it’s more of a gears of war style of gameplay, but I enjoyed playing through it. You will also get your moneys worth, as the game takes you through 16 hours worth across 4 campaigns. Most resident evil games you’re lucky to beat in more than 9 or 10 hours. I’m a huge fan of all resident evil games, people need to expand their horizons and not expect every frickin RE game to be like the original 3. If you want a fun time with a game, and not take it too seriously, you will enjoy this game. This game gets waaaaay more hate than it deserves. Expand

    wow, so many people bashing at it.... It's not the worst game of the generation like some of you say,just wow x-x. What train hit you to saywow, so many people bashing at it.... It's not the worst game of the generation like some of you say,just wow x-x. What train hit you to say such things? Yeah sure,it's not the same Resident Evil that used to be, but it was still a fun game to play ( better than 5 in my opinion). You can play a campaign up to 7-8 hours ( 4 campaigns in total, not 3) on a harder difficulty. There are a lot of quick time events,sure but I think that they're set for the right moments, an example is when you get grabbed by a zombie, of course you have to try something to escape right? And QTE are also used to enhance some cutscenes, making them more intense, not to mention that on Easy difficulty those cutscenes QTE will be done automatically..that's something no one talks about ¬_¬ . There's also a lot of variation in the game, from driving(flying,etc) to some light puzzles. The graphics aren't bad either and the storyline is pretty alright ( not the best but acceptable). Ammo is pretty scarce as well and the environment is well made. It's not horror but Leon's campaign has a little level of creepiness. The only bad thing about this game that I can say, is the online mode. While Agent Hunt is a great idea, it's entirely broken, you can barely move or do anything useful. It turns from fun to a chore. Mercenaries it's okay I guess, more intense ( a little bit),but not that much better than RE5. Annnd..the other modes you have to pay for...Ustanak was meh , great idea to look at but when you get to play it, it's kinda bad in my opinion. They should've put way more effort in the Online modes (that's cheap) . It's also a bit sad that the costumes are removed from the campaign. The game has ups and downs for sure, but it's not a bad game like some of you scream out there or bash at it. If some people would complain less and not right off the bat, playing the game more,the might see,that there was effort into it. To me overall Resident Evil 6 was a pretty good game, I hope the next one is even better. (Sorry for my english) Expand

    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 was probably designed by Michael Bay. This game has nothing to do with the known Resident Evil series and it doesn't feel likeResident 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. Expand

    There is only "Resident Evil" name left from this series of games.

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

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

    Alas ...
