Gamespot gave it a 45/100. That is like the kid in the special class calling you stupid.

I'm about 5 hours into Leon's campaign and I love it.

Always loved the RE games, and if you do then you'll enjoy this one.

Famitsu gave it a 39/40. Not sure what to make of that. There's quite a few people I notice commenting on how they think it's a great game and how a lot of the western gaming media have got it all wrong but really they're only saying that as they just bought it. Give it a few weeks as always and let's see what people really think about the game. It's NOT Resident Evil anymore, and that's coming from someone who loved RE5.

I'm not praising it just because I bought it.

If I hated it (like I did with MW3) then I'd give up on it and sell it.

There will always be exceptions of course, I just mean't generally speaking on the internet there's a lot of people going a bit crazy about how this game's been received.

People are going crazy because we can't believe the bad reviews. It's a really good game. People still think 'Resident Evil' and they compare newer games to the classic PSone versions.

Resident Evil has changed. Simple as, either accept it or choose another game.

RE6 is pretty much like RE4 and RE5.

Have you played this yet?

I've played both demo's at length (which equals six separate sections from the campaign). I think people are upset not because of how it strayed from the original Resi formula (everyone accepted that years ago) but because it now has nothing in common with RE4/5 even. I don't see how you can say it's "pretty much like" them when it feels completely different to play.

What chapters did you get from the demo? Like I said, the section before the opening titles and chapter 1 is more like Operation Raccoon City, but Chapter 2 onwards is more like RE4 and RE5.

The demo was poor, and shouldn't have been released. Unless they put a good chapter in the demo, it'll get judged.

Says it all really hasn't even played the full game yet and thinks they can give an opinion on the full game

well as i've said before i finished leon's scenario last night and i can 100% say this game is still a resident evil game and that it felt just like resident evil 4

they only different is hud cosmetics, you move slighty faster and the 360 degree camera control but please when you have played the full game give a proper opinion

thomas2400 - totally agree. It was a bad demo. It happens, you get bad demo's that don't reflect the best part of the game.

This is why I never play demo's. They can be offputting. But you're right, unless you have played the game from the start and played until at least Chapter 3, then you don't really have a strong opinion of the game yet.

I never gave an opinion on the full game. I played both demo's which probably equals around 2 hours worth of gameplay is more than enough to get a grasp on the gameplay mechanics and to know they are completely different from Resi 4/5.

Funny because you haven't finished the game yourself and have only played 1/4's worth (which is known to the be the best part) yet you feel inclined to not only judge the game but to also tell me to play the full game before offering an opinion. Funny guy.

What is exactly different about them though aside from button layout? can you list a bunch of differences that actually effect the game so people can see what you mean

So how do you feel it's completely different?

The camera isn't locked to the back of the character (which leads to the biggest difference in feel)
The characters are too zoomed into the screen
Different controls and aiming system
Different inventory
QTE
Cover system

Different controls and aiming system L1 raise gun R1 fire, where have i used that before

Different inventory, Resident evil 1-3, Resident evil 4, resi 5, resi 6 all different inventory systems and please please don't sit there are pretend for one second that this is worse than the 9 slot resi 5 system where an egg is the same size as a rocket launcher

QTE, this is getting funny you love resi 5 (and i'll get you like 4) but a look of these problems where in previous game such as QTEs

Cover system, nothing wrong with it infact it saved my life a few times in a boss fight, not much need for it in the demos though so you probably didn't get a handle on it

I've never used the cover system, I just shoot lol

I see no problem with QTE's - you just have to pay attention.

To put this into perspective we'll also include another recent Resident Evil game; Revelations on 3DS. The feel of Resi 6 in terms of controls is nothing like RE4/5/Revelations, it's loose, the characters lack the weight and feel of these games and the actual mechanism of control is completely different. Whether you like it or not is up to you, I'm just highlighting the differences, same goes for the inventory.

I know full well there are QTE's and even a form of cover system in the odd later section of RE 5 but the QTE's in RE6 are different, they are more frequent and imo more annoying (stick waggling). The cover system in Chris campaign is just on a whole new level (Gears of War style).

But you've only played the demo, i can tell you the QTEs are not that frequent

And again with the inventory it works perfect

up and down - items that can be used

left and right - weapons

how can you possibly have a problem with such a basic concept

I've played two demo's and the QTE's were more frequent than RE4/5/Revelations and not only that, they were different as I said. You've only played Leon's campaign yourself

Never said I had a problem with the inventory.

Yes i've actually played an entire campain so i think i know a little bit more than you do about the game

QTEs are not that frequent what you need to remember is demos have to try and include every element of gameplay into a short space of time

This is getting a bit childish now, that's not what the reviews say nor from my own experience. I'm talking about the whole game (which you haven't played yet) not only Leon's campaign which is generally considered to be good.

So nnnrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Your right this is getting childish, if you buy the game and wish to discuss the campains in full with a proper opinion then we shall but until then let's leave it as i have the game and think its great and you don't have the full game so have no opinion of your own on it
