  Jack of all trades and master of none

| | See all MarcusMaximus's reviews (8)

As someone who has played nearly every Resident Evil game, I can only feel very disappointed with Resident Evil 6. The game is very much a jack of all trades and unfortunately master of none. The bane of my frustration comes from the scripted "chase sequences" where you have to evade an enemy or danger such as an avalanche. They are made nearly impossible due to poor camera angles which constantly change and make you randomly change direction (and ultimately die)
There is hardly any "horror element" left in this game, it is very much designed for the Call Of Duty generation who like to run around and spray bullets everywhere.

My advice, if you enjoyed previous games then avoid this game.

  Very good

Overall the game is very good - whether it is better than Re 5 is debatable though, as RE 6 does suffer from various problems that it's predecessor didn't : Very problematic camera positioning (especially during Chris's penultimate level), dodgy controls (especially when running) and unskippable end credit (which last for around 10 minutes).

The 5 main characters missions are different only in how enjoyable they are : Leon's is the best, with Jakes being boring. Ada's one is good, except for an unforgiving timed sequence which gets very annoying, very quickly.

Graphics are good - detailing is good, but the usual gloomy surroundings does get annoying, although Jake's blizzard map is even more so.

It's worth getting, as long as you can get it as cheap as possible.
