I always say this, but it bears repeating: Anything Leon stars in is pure gold. This is no exception.

Resident Evil 6 is once again not the same game that many first fell in love with fifteen years ago, which will be disappointing for those that have long been seeking a game that has more in common with its roots. Nevertheless, there’s a strong offering here that embraces the action genre more than ever before, but its executed to a high enough degree for it to be one of the best of its ilk.

Parsemé de clins d'oeil (à la série et au cinéma fantastique des années 80, 90 et 2000) tout en étant cantonné dans la vision coopérative que Capcom se fait désormais de « l'actioner / horror », cet opus franchit néanmoins une étape significative dans l'évolution de son gameplay. De plus, entre son excellente durée de vie et quelques passages très inspirés, il peut se targuer d'avoir voulu parler à un plus large public en piochant dans les épisodes passés tout en dynamisant son récit via des éléments plus actuels. De fait, si les différents binômes ne sont pas aussi intéressants les uns que les autres et que la technique n'est pas toujours optimale, Resident Evil 6 a su voir plus loin que Resident Evil 5. Si on pourra déplorer qu'il ne mette pas dans le mille à chaque fois, il a au moins le mérite de ne pas verser dans un immobilisme gênant. En somme, si on attend encore le Resident qui mettra tout le monde d'accord, ce segment demeure incontestablement un morceau de choix.

Affichant une première partie laborieuse nullement représentative du reste de l'aventure, Resident Evil 6 se montre étonnamment généreux tout en se payant le luxe de s'amuser au détriment des autres épisodes.

Resident Evil 6 sigue siendo un juego tan intenso, largo y rejugable como antes. Sus cuatro campañas dan para muchas horas y con un amigo se hacen incluso más divertidas. Sin embargo, ha llegado a PC demasiado tarde y con un número irrisorio de novedades que justifiquen dicho retraso, ya que ni siquiera se ha hecho un esfuerzo por mejorarlo visualmente. Con todo, si no lo jugasteis en su momento y no os importa que la saga haya terminado de renunciar a sus orígenes, esta versión de la sexta entrega de la serie se convierte en una alternativa de compra muy recomendable si simplemente queréis disfrutar de una buena aventura de acción al más puro estilo de Hollywood, ya sea acompañados o en solitario.

Resident Evil deve decidere cosa vuole fare da grande. Sebbene la serie abbia ancora qualche strada percorribile sul fronte narrativo, in termini di gameplay soffre di una evidente nostalgia nei confronti dei primi episodi che si traduce in un pericoloso stallo. Le meccaniche di gioco non reggono il confronto con quanto attualmente offerto dal genere dei third person shooter, mentre diventano addirittura imbarazzanti quando il nostro personaggio cerca di colpire gli zombie con il coltello. È dunque forte l'esigenza di un reboot che guardi a quanto di buono fatto da titoli come Dead Space e traghetti il prodotto Capcom verso la next gen partendo da presupposti rinnovati. La versione PC, al di là di risoluzione e frame rate maggiori rispetto a quanto visto su console, non può che deludere vista la presenza delle medesime texture, che già non brillavano su Xbox 360 e PlayStation 3.

Resident Evil 6 is a truly immense RE title that succeeds as a third-person action shooter, but falls flat on its face as a survival horror game. Yes, times have changed, but if Dead Space can still provide a good balance of scares and set-pieces, then why can't Resi? Here's hoping that Capcom sees the next-generation of consoles as a golden opportunity to take Resident Evil back to its roots. Until then, Resident Evil 6 is certainly not a bad game by any means, and it'll get its slimy hooks into you if you let it.

If you prefer PC gaming in general, then this is definitely the one to go for, but if you prefer consoles or just don’t care, you won’t really miss out on much by sticking to the console version. As for the game itself? It’s definitely a good game, one that shows promise for an action focused future in the Resident Evil franchise, but too many little annoyances add up to prevent it from being a great game. It’s still a game worth playing though, especially if you’re a fan of action shooters. Shooting zombies’ heads off is something that’s always going to be fun.

Resident Evil 6 for the PC is a step up in terms of content and visuals, but a considerable leap down in terms of controls. Give me the console version over this one any day of the week.

The game has plenty of OH CRAP moments that made me jump out of my skin… and you know what? Those are some of the adventures I am looking for. I am just hoping for a bit more next outing.

What we have here is an incredibly long, incredibly flawed, and yet paradoxically engaging experience. I can't say you should go to Steam right now and pay $40 for this game. But sometime down the line, when you have a long weekend with nothing to do, you might notice it on sale and pick it up. And you won't quite regret it.

Objectively, Resi 6 is a mixed bag of nice ideas and disappointing flaws. Subjectively, I enjoyed the vast majority of it, and I'll keep going back to Mercenaries. It's cheap, big, and probably worth a punt. Or, if you like: 'Ahh! I'd buy it at this lower price.'

Nonostante questo ci sono comunque tre validi motivi per consigliarvene l'acquisto, sopratutto se adorate i titoli cooperativi. Il primo è che la versione PC è tecnicamente la migliore del lotto e, nonostante i difetti congeniti, si conferma veramente piacevole da guardare e da giocare anche senza disporre di un computer ultraveloce. Il secondo è la citata longevità: in un mercato dove le sei-otto ore stanno diventando un deprecabile standard, vale quasi da sola il prezzo del biglietto. Il quale è il terzo motivo, altrettanto importante: a cinque mesi dalla pubblicazione si spendono solo 29 euro per un download da Steam che garantisce parecchio divertimento, pur con la consapevolezza di non trovarsi di fronte al miglior Resident Evil di sempre.

Everything in Resident Evil 6 is bigger, louder, and prettier than its predecessors, but that does not necessarily make it a better game. While it finally embraces the adrenaline-fueled action the series has slowly moved toward for so long, the rest is a schizophrenic mess. Capcom can’t seem to decide whether Resident Evil is a campy blockbuster film (undoubtedly its greatest strength) or a serious reflection on the human condition. For all of our sakes, let’s hope it chooses the former for future editions.

Um´s nochmal klarzustellen: Resident Evil 6 ist kein richtiges Resident Evil mehr. Dafür mangelt es an allen Ecken und Enden an Spannung und echten Survival-Horror-Momenten. Doch selbst für kurzweiligen Ballerspaß reicht‘s nicht. Dafür wiederholen sich die endlosen 08/15 Actioneinlagen, Quicktime-Events und Schienensequenzen viel zu oft. Ich hätte nie geglaubt, dass ich das mal über ein Spiel sagen würde, aber: Zehn Stunden Spielzeit weniger hätten dem Titel gut getan. So reagiere ich auf die zahllosen Explosionen nur noch mit ausgiebigem Gähnen. So richtig schlecht ist das Actionspiel ja nicht, aber sonderlich gut eben auch nicht. Wenigstens der Koop-Modus kann mich noch für einige vergnügliche Stunden vor den Monitor fesseln. Und doch bleibt am Ende die eine Gewissheit: Resident Evil 6 hätte so viel mehr sein können.

Resident Evil 6 PC is arguably the definitive version of the game – best graphics, all-inclusive, best multiplayer backbone – and obviously worthy of a playthrough if you’re PC-only gamer. However, if you played the console version last year (our review here), it’s probably not worth double-dipping and it still handles best on a controller. In short, while it’s Resident Evil, and you know you want it, it’s definitely no Resident Evil 4 replacement.

Als am Ende zum vierten Mai der (nicht überspringbare) Abspann von Resident Evil 6 über meinen Bildschirm flimmerte, atmete ich tief durch. Nicht, weil ich zuvor aufgrund grenzenloser Spannung die Luft angehalten hätte — nein, ich versuchte, mich zu beruhigen, um beim Schreiben dieses Tests nicht wie ein Rohrspatz zu schimpfen. Resident Evil 6 ist für mich der schwächste Teil der Reihe und wirkt wie ein auf die Schnelle zusammengeschustertes Spiel mit ungewöhnlich vielen Design-Fehlern und technischen Glitches. Trotzdem: Wer einen Freund mit vor den Rechner zerrt, hat an den Gefechten mit teils gigantischen Gegnern durchaus ein paar Stunden lang Freude. Die Kombo aus knackiger Zwei-Spieler-Action und stimmiger Einzelspielerkampagne bekommt aber Dead Space 3 deutlich besser hin.

WindowsGamingTrend
I guess in the end, the problem with Resident Evil 6 is that it doesn’t have an identity. It wants to please its survival-horror fanbase, but seems to have forgotten how to walk that fine line between tense action and frustrating challenge. Capcom knows that cover-based shooters sell well, but can’t figure out how to mesh that with zombies, who never use cover and don’t shoot back. If you’re desperate for some gruesome action and you can find it on sale, you might want to pick it up, but as it stands Resident Evil 6 fails because it tries to do everything, and so it ends up succeeding at nothing.

As value for money, this game is definitely worth it with four campaigns and two extra game modes to be exhausted. However, I don’t think that this was the game for which fans of the horror genre have been waiting.

As a total package, taking everything into account and averaging it out, Resident Evil 6 is a good game. I can’t help but believe that the addition of the other character’s detract from the “real” Leon campaign, bringing that said average down rather than adding value. Each campaign feels too separate, too different, and do little to complete a story that’s ridiculous and convoluted. When I was done with my first campaign, I though “I’ll have to play the next one to fill in the blanks”. While that’s partly true, it still doesn’t come together cohesively, and ends being a disjointed mess. There’s almost too much content, diluting the shining moments that make Resident Evil 6 special. I can only hope Capcom learns from this and creates a more focused experience rooted in survival horror—exactly what made the franchise successful in the first place.

Mich stört an Resident Evil 6 nicht, dass es voll auf Action setzt. Mich stört vielmehr, dass es bei zig Action-Titeln klaut und kaum noch eine eigene Note hat. Sicher, das Monsterdesign ist schön eklig und grafisch wird einige Abwechslung geboten. Aber mit wenigen Ausnahmen kämpfe ich nach 35 Stunden noch genauso wie nach 35 Minuten, abwechselnd ballernd und nahkämpfend. Der schlimmste Feind aber ist kein Adipositas-Zombie und kein Flug-Mutant. sondern die Kamera nebst unpräzisem Fadenkreuz. Den meisten Spielern dürfte das bald zu zäh werden, mit Ausnahme beinharter Serienfans und Freunden des Koop-Modus. Nicht, dass letzterer besonders toll gemacht wäre, die meisten kooperativen Elemente wirken aufgesetzt. Resident Evil 6 will zu viel: Halb so viele Spielstunden bei höherem Erregungsniveau wären die bessere Alternative gewesen. Ganz so, wie es beim intensiveren 4. Serienteil der Fall war, der überdies weit beeindruckendere Bosse bot.

Was ist bloß mit Capcom los? Zuerst verpasst man der Resident Evil-Reihe mit dem grausigen Ableger Operation: Raccoon City einen massiven Image-Schaden. Und jetzt fährt man auch noch den sechsten Teil gegen die Wand. All die Versprechungen von der Rückkehr zu den Wurzeln, von der Wiederauferstehung des Survival-Horrors…alles leeres Marketing-Gesülze, um die Fanbasis zu beruhigen und eine Hoffnung zu schüren, die es für die Serie offensichtlich nicht mehr gibt. Schon in der 3DS-Episode Revelations hat man versucht, es allen recht zu machen, doch kam dort zumindest mit Jill das alte Horror-Feeling zurück. Das blitzt hier höchstens zu Beginn der Leon-Kampage auf, geht aber sonst im Dauerfeuer und Explosionsketten unter. Wenn man es schon ordentlich krachen lassen und Vorbildern wie Call of Duty oder Gears of War nacheifern will, dann sollen es die Japaner auch richtig machen.

Sechs Monate nach der Premiere scheint die Vergangenheit bewältigt: Resident Evil 6 hat weder finanziell noch inhaltlich so abgeschnitten wie es sich Capcom erhofft hatte – das internationale Presse-Echo war angesichts früherer Euphorie verheerend. Entgegen der Versprechen von Wurzeln, Survival und Horror gab es einen Actionzombiebrei ohne Charakter. Und während die Japaner längst mit der Ursachenforschung beschäftigt sind, unterstreicht die technisch biedere PC-Version nochmal, warum dieser starke Name nicht mehr begeistern kann, sondern in vielen Bereichen so enttäuscht. Man muss nur kurz reinspielen, um ernüchtert festzustellen, dass Angst und Panik passé sind und dass selbst die Shooter-Reste, die zurückbleiben, technisch und spielmechanisch weit hinter einem Crysis 3 oder Gears of War: Judgment vor sich hin explodieren. Damit stürzt Resident Evil in eine Belanglosigkeit, die der Reihe das Genick bricht.

Capcom continues to thumb its nose at long time series fans. Not only have they abandoned any pretense of tension and fear, they've dredged up tired old storylines and shifted the game solidly into Gears of War territory. Let the series die!

Hier heult kein enttäuschter Liebhaber. Es wurde kein Fanherz rausgerissen, auf den Boden geworfen und zerstampft. Es ist eigentlich alles noch viel schlimmer: Mein Blick auf Resident Evil 6 ist nüchterner als ein trockener Alkoholiker, aber trotzdem bin ich verstört und verwirrt von solch fundamentalen Designpatzern im Gameplay, den fehlenden Innovationen und der mangelnden Inspiration.

As such the franchise has begun to resemble one of its bloated, mutated, flesh-seamed monsters. It’s expanded beyond any plausible scientific explanation, with what is left being a cumbersome, grotesque mish-mash of disparate elements, barely strung together and about as subtle as a hammer to the thumb. And just as when you shoot one of the game’s infected J’avo in face, shooting at the core of the clockwork machinations behind Resident Evil 6’s design reveals the true nature of Capcom’s beastly franchise – it’s still the impressive spectacle it always was, but it’s become a bit of an incoherent mess.

In the search for Resident Evil's identity, Capcom seems to have given up and just thrown all of their ideas into the game and hoped for the best. The result is an ambitious but sloppy, tense but mislead blockbuster of a game that only serves to disappoint. There are moments in Resident Evil 6 that are new benchmarks for the series, but unfortunately, they're few and far between and Resident Evil 6 feels like a major letdown.

I didn’t think it was possible but the Resident Evil games have gotten as loud, dumb and tiresome as the Resident Evil movies. Overcomplicated mechanics, a confusing, schizophrenic campaign split four ways and a ridiculous plot that doesn’t just break suspension of disbelief but blends it into a smoothie make Resident Evil 6 a real chore to get through.

Resident Evil 6's messy mix of annoying quick-time events and constant set pieces makes it a poor caricature of modern-day action games.

Xbox 360GameSpot
But how far can cinematics get you when the gameplay sandwiched between them is so poorly paced, so utterly misconceived, so reliant on stick wriggles and button tapping? There's a place for contextual prompts and cinematic storytelling in video games, but Resident Evil 6 is a mishmash of elements put together without any sense of care or direction. Series faithful might stumble through for the sake of story, and perhaps to appreciate those few moments that recall when Resident Evil was at its peak glory. But this long, poor sequel is the ultimate test of patience for even the most dedicated.

Xbox 360Giant Bomb
At a glance, Resident Evil 6 is built on the basic blueprint of a good action game, swaddled in what must have been one of the most expensive productions in video game history. You could offer a lot of ifs about how to make this game better: if the fat were trimmed out in service of a shorter, tighter campaign; if the designers had drilled down more intently on one style of gameplay rather than trying to cover all of them; if the player's core interactions with the game were simply as refined as they should have been. But in the real world, we're left with what's in the box. It's hard to fathom how Resident Evil, which almost singlehandedly redefined the action genre just two installments ago, has now become such a strange, mediocre pastiche of the better games this series once inspired. What a bitter irony that is.

Xbox 360Anime News Network
Resident Evil 6 does have its hints of inspiration, like constantly mutating enemies who may become stronger, or more agile, or more resilient when you remove one of their limbs. It has a great idea in pairing you up with other players when storylines intersect, so that a 2 person game becomes a 4 person game, and the Chris you meet when playing as Leon is not an NPC, but an actual person somewhere out there who happened to be at the same boss fight at the same time. Enthusiasm for these things is difficult to muster, stultified by the conga line of scripted events. Interesting segments exist, but they are in tiny bits and pieces, and the rest of the game is the part where you think "thank god that's over, I never want to do that again."

In fact, it’s a sad state of affairs overall. The Resident Evil series has been on a roll, from 3 to 4 to 5 to Mercenaries to Revelations. Even the uneven Operation Raccoon City had a lot to love. But Resident Evil 6 is noisy, sloppy, busy, bloated, tedious, and ultimately too familiar to even appreciate for the usual ridiculousness. Where’s my copy of Resident Evil 5?
