Resident Evil 6
Resident Evil 6 is one of the most ambitious titles that Capcom has ever produced. It is fair to say that they went all out with Resident Evil 6. Some people say that Resident Evil 6 was a little too much and it would prove to be the last (well as of now) of the more action-packed Resident Evil games.
Four for The Price of One
The story in Resident Evil 6 is massive. The story is set all over the world and it is basically centered around a new virus which is called the C-Virus. The game has four different campaigns that are all interconnected in a very clever way. Seriously I cannot overstate the huge effort that putting this campaign together must have been.
Each campaign has a main character. Leon, Chris, Ada, and a new character called Jake who is Wesker’s son! Each character is joined by an accompanying character just like Resident Evil 5 with Chris and Sheva. Resident Evil 6 does not just have four different people to play as from a story point of view. Each character actually has their own feel and abilities. This does help to keep things fresh and I think it was very ambitious of Capcom to do this.
Can I Play by Myself?
The AI in Resident Evil 5 was not very good. Thankfully, Resident Evil 6 has made some great improvements in this regard. The AI is not super dumb and you will not find yourself cursing at them every five minutes. However, they do give you the option to play it with just the one character if you want and that is my preferred way of doing things.
The multiplayer is every bit as good as it was in Resident Evil 5, if not even better! Seriously if you can get a friend to play through this with you, you guys are in for one heck of a great time.
Resident Evil 6 took the action to a whole new level. The series had been getting more and more about action rather than survival horror and this game is the apex of that. You can now run and shoot at the same time, you can roll, slide and in general, the core gameplay is very similar to other 3rd person action shooters of the day.
Some people absolutely hated this! I for one though think that the game doe splay very well. Yes, it is nothing like those older classic games. Yet you can clearly see the level of progression from Resident Evil 4 to what would become Resident Evil 6. Both Resident Evil 4 and 5 sold phenomenally well so it was no surprise that Capcom decided to kick things up a notch for this game.
Level Me Up!
One other thing that was new to Resident Evil 6 was the way the game would throw skill points at you. These were there for you to upgrade your character and while I appreciate the idea and get what they were going for I do feel that it felt a little out of place in a Resident Evil game.
Some Real Bang for Your Buck
Resident Evil 6 could have just the campaign and that would be fine, but there are other things to have fun with here. Mercenaries is a survival shooter kind of game and it is a lot of fun. They also allow for up to 4 player action which is pretty neat. There is some extra DLC that you can get which I would recommend if you do like the multiplayer aspect of Resident Evil 6.
I can see why some people were very turned off by Resident Evil 6. I though do feel that this is a better game than what Resident Evil 5 was. The story is great, but a little long and being able to play as four characters is fun. The multiplayer that is here is awesome, especially playing through the story with someone. Also, though even if you had to play through the game on your own, I feel that you are in for a good time.
