Capcom sequel comes in mixed.

With Resident Evil 6 launching tomorrow, Capcom has lifted the reviews embargo and a flood of opinion has hit the web. And they’re quite mixed! Find the full roundup of reviews below.

  • Locksus

    Well, I certainly didn’t get a good impression from the demo.

  • http://twitter.com/NoctisFNCvsXIII Eli Shelton

    Wow those Low reviews just sucked and great Reviewers is just fine with me.

  • Joseph Steinhilpert

    I see the look of disguest on his face

  • Joseph Steinhilpert

    I see the look of disgust on his face.

  • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

    After playing the demo, I expected this.

    • Revorse

      Expected which? Good scores? Bad scores? Or the whole mix?

      • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

        The mix of scores.

  • Dean Winchester

    Jim Sterling loves to hear himself speak.
    He bashes everything so its expected but it appears every major review site is giving ok to good reviews while only the mom and pop no name fan sites are giving the game 9′s or higher.

    Either way….things dont look so hot if youre a resi-Evil fan.

  • xMCXx

    Yeah, 4 Players…..
    They are usually overly critical, but this time it fits the shoe.

    I don’t know how anyone can give this game ratings in the 90s/9s.
    It’s long, I’ll give it that, but it’s just mindless action reminiscing those god-awful movies.

  • http://www.facebook.com/JaeWhy SasuleUchiha

    Will still get Gold Edition.

    • Anime10121

       That’s also what I’m waiting on, 5 left a bad taste in my mouth, (and to an extent, so did 4 considering the gameplay was similar, although at least 4 “felt” more Resident Evil) so I’ll just wait for the inevitable Capcom second release with everything included version, which’ll probably, like 5′s, be referred to as the “Gold Edition”.

      • http://www.facebook.com/JaeWhy SasuleUchiha

        Actually I liked 4 and 5. 4 was my first game. And I played Revelations too. I liked them all.

        • Anime10121

          Well, I’m not saying they were “bad games” they just didnt feel like Resident Evil 0,1,2,3, Code Veronica before them.  4 and 5 are ok games, they just dont feel like “Resident Evil” games to me (and 6 looks to be the same).  Revelations was better (a whole lot better), it just needed a little more “spook” to it, (or Zombies).

          Thats why I’ll wait on the inevitable second edition of the game, as Resident Evil just isn’t a first day buy for me anymore.

  • luke12345

    Reviews are paid to bash a game once in awhile the bashed revalations and that was a brill game each reviewer looks for somthing diffent when reviewing a game thats why there is some reviews liking the game and others bashing it i think it looks brill and could be one of the best resi games yet tge only one who can like a game is the person playing it christ when resi 1-3 were out everyone bashed it because of the tank controls now they change that everyone is moaning about this is why game devolpers cant win because the game community is so pissy just play the game and if u like it u like it if not u dont

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      I can’t even read that, it’s like a 120-word sentence. Please, have some consideration for grammar. =)

      I’ve never heard of reviewers being paid to ‘bash’ a game. Certainly to praise it, but not to bash it.

      Anyway, I don’t understand your argument. At the end, you say “if you like it, you like it, if not, you don’t.” Yet, you seem to be upset that there are bad reviews? Clearly some people liked it, others did not.

    I Still Play RE_6 

    But Sometime i Agree With GameSpot Or IGN 

  • AuroraXIII

    Useless Famitsu.

    • KingOptimusOrigins111

      Famitsu always give high scores.

    • Noctionus

       Watch it to sell more than ORC.

  • http://kougeru.tumblr.com/ Kou

    Well, now I’m kinda glad that extra multiplayer mode isn’t free with the game. IT gave me reason not to pre-order the game , and it appears I would’ve wasted my money since every reviewer I find even semi-reliable gives it a bad score.

  • Luna Kazemaru

    inb4 generic comment about RE6 being like gears when they are nothing alike other then the over the shoulder view 

    • Richard Uehara

      Watch when you play Chapter 2 of Chris’ campaign lol that reminded me of one of the early missions of Gears of War 2 that’s about it so far though.

      Ps. No I am not a Gears of War fan lol

      • Luna Kazemaru

         I’m on Jake’s campaign atm but I’m expecting RE5 honestly all over again with chris story. I’m just laughing at how people are coming up with crappy cod/gears jokes when they have nothing in common but some aspects aka actions and things blowing up (i guess). Even more funny is most of these ‘reviews’ are barely bringing up the games itself and is just one big rant fest on how they don’t like that RE went all action. Sure they talk about the bad camera or something here or there but yeah.

        • Richard Uehara

           Yeah Chris’ campaign is RE5 all over again but with a more asshole-ish Chris lol. Leon’s Campaign felt more Survival-Horror. I wanted to do Jake’s first since I was looking forward to playing with him (and I like how he is dressed lol) but I decided to just go down in order. I don’t bother to look at reviews since they mostly rant about how games that I enjoy are bad.

  • Anime10121

    Wow, well that was completely unexpected, although after having played the demo, if each campaign is actually like that in the real game, then I’d say most of those scores are well deserved.

  • zakou

    Don’t care about reviews XD ill either get this game when its cheap or the gold edition. On the other hand i just ordered Dead Or alive collectors edition full price XD.

  • http://twitter.com/AceOfCakez Ace

    Wow, There are a lot of differing opinions on this game. 

  • Kazziyan

    Don’t do it, Capcom. I know what you’re thinking.

    • FaithlessMr

       What are they thinking, Kaz Hirai? O.o

      • Kazziyan

        Complete outsourcing.

        Essentially- I’d rather they look back at what they did right and wrong on the series as a whole and try for the next RE though.

        • FaithlessMr

           Oh shit.

          Yeah, it’s Capcom, they did it with Devil May Cry and that franchise wasn’t doing nearly as bad as this was, review wise…but then again, it’s all about the sales figures, and RE 5 was the most sucessful RE title, sales wise, so if this keeps up that trend, I’m guessing they’ll just keep doing the same thing over and over for some more cash instead of going for the outsourcing route just now.

          If there’s anything that could ruin this series, that’d be it :/ In my honest opinion, anyway.

          • KingOptimusOrigins111

            So basically it would be considered Call Of Evil.

            • DrForbidden

              Or Resident Duty?

              No, never mind. That sounds like a medical simulator…

              • KingOptimusOrigins111

                LOL!!!!! I think the only thing that can save Resident Evil is a reboot for next gen and going back to its roots. 

            • FaithlessMr

               I quiver at the tought :x

          • Kazziyan

            Pretty much. :/ I would love that these polarizing reviews were a nice wak eup call that the series is in danger. 

            Like I was telling naaros, they probably won’t go the route I’m hoping for and just do a complete outsource. 

            A Japanese RE still has some stance. They just need to look back for a bit and think for the next RE. That said- I also think that extra month would’ve helped with some of the issues listed.

            • FaithlessMr

               Fuck. They’re so misguided right now. But it’s a Capcom thing to do alright, to just go “Aww, screw it, we’ll outsource, we love west rong tiem”.

              My heart can’t take any more western silent hill games….so doing the same with RE :x it’s really bad. There goes my hope of ever seeing another great survival horror game on my lifetime that’s not an indie first person pc game.

              • Kazziyan

                OT but I have only played Silent Hill 3 PC and that’s partially since the sounds in that game scared me away lol, but I liked Heather enough to play. But I’m assuming that was the last good SH?

                And I agree. Every mediocre or bad sales seems to lead Capcom to think it needs to be westernized and that is in the wrong way. Raccoon City or whatever that game was called was the beginning of it, I guess.

                • FaithlessMr

                   Yeah, it was the last good SH game. And then the original team went bananas and made SH 4, which is a hot mess, and just seems like a mix of different ideas that simply don’t work well together, at all. Since that game sucked big time, Konami decided to outsource and it went donwhill fast. 0rigins was fine, the psp game. But that’s about it for me.

                  Yeah, the moment Capcom announced that Racoon city game, I kinda knew the franchise was more or less doomed for, since they are indeed trying to push this more and more over to the shooter crowd, and that’s never a good thing.

                  • Kazziyan

                    The original team left by then, right? Siren Bloodcurse was made by the original Silent Hill team, iirc?

                    It’s the same with Devil May Cry. It really did not need a reboot/outsource no matter how good that game looks. Some fresh ideas from the Japanese team would’ve been fine. They’ve all worked with Kamiya.

                    If they do this to Monster Hunter- then… I will cry, lol.

                    Is Penumbra/Amneisa (if it counts) the only good survival horror now? Dead Space was and still is solid, but I think they moved away from that.

                    • FaithlessMr

                       I’m not sure if the whole team worked on Siren or if just the serie’s original creator. I think it’s the latter. TBH I never managed to get into Siren even tho I love survival horror. I guess I need to force myself to play these because I seem to enjoy even the more awkward survival horror games from japan like ClockTower or Haunted Ground, and yet I don’t like Siren.

                      I’m not sure if the team left, but that seems to be the case. I’ve read online once (not sure if this is true at all) that the team simply refused to work on any more SH games even tho Konami insisted, because they believed that the series was running dry. Again, not sure if this is true or not, and perhaps just a fancy rumour :P

                      Yeah, these are perhaps the only good survival horror games of the moment. The original Dead Space had it’s moments, the second is already too action-y for my tastes even tho it’s a fun game. Just not very scary. It gets predictable fast. And I don’t think they’ll ever outsource MH, since it’s like one of their biggest cashcows, and 90% of the profit they get originates from Japan. If they outsourced it, I’d imagine the fan backslash would be of tremendous proportions, to a point where the franchise would just die out if they didn’t turn it back to the hands of those who’ve been working on it :P

        • http://twitter.com/gamesreflexoes Celebrinando

          say this to the 5 millions copies sold until now, the best Capcom fast selling game of all times

  • KingOptimusOrigins111

    I knew this game was going to suck. I played the demo and I feel like Resident Evil 5 is better.

    (600th Comment)

    • Kobracon

      I wouldn’t classify Last of Us as survival horror…. just Uncharted with a really smart AI escort mission/partner

      • KingOptimusOrigins111

        The infected humans would like a word with you. 

        • Kobracon

          Resistance’s Chimera would like to have a word with you. I wouldn’t call that Survival horror either :/

          • KingOptimusOrigins111

            Because Resistance was more of Halo type of game.

            • Kobracon

              Meh. I guess we’ll be calling it different genres when it comes out

    • http://twitter.com/gamesreflexoes Celebrinando

      5 millions people played the demo and bought the game. They buy what they hate? They loved it…and this reviews are just opinions and most important MIXED. 8.8 GameTrailer and GameInformer, 9 on OPM

  • FaithlessMr

    Well…I really didn’t like the demo. I’m one of those old RE fans, and I’m having some trouble accepting the new direction Capcom is stubbornly taking this series in. Revelations, on the 3DS was a prime example of a modern Resident Evil done right. One that was surely not without it’s flaws, but one that showed that we can have an action-y, fast paced Resi that still felt like it used to. One that had it’s share of exploration and puzzles (albeit toned down to a point where a monkey could understand it), but still, it felt like classic RE, with some new ideas thrown in.

    And it did it all with a cover system or a sliding and shooting system. You could walk and shoot as everyone asked for, yes, but if you died in that game, you did it because you sucked. Simple as.

    So yeah, I’ll definitely play this, eventually, simply because I love this franchise and I played all of the games before. But I won’t definitely get it right away, I’ll wait for a price drop or sumthin’. I haven’t read up the reviews just yet, but it seems some agree with me that if Capcom wants to turn RE into something new, they really should up their game and decide what they want to do with it, instead of trying to chew on more than they can take.

    • http://twitter.com/gamesreflexoes Celebrinando

      almost 5 millions of copies sold on its first week, people really hate the demo?

      • FaithlessMr

        I never said everyone hated the demo. I just said I didn’t like it, as many other people didn’t. I’m also pretty sure there’s a huge market for this type of game. But it’s also obvious that this is dividing the original fanbase for the series, at the cost of bringing more people in and turning the series into a really popular one (which manages to sell five million on the first week).

        • http://twitter.com/gamesreflexoes Celebrinando

          sure, but I see this like a smart move from Capcom

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/2JCXKQVFQW2JRYSNKRMDML7PGM TerU_Camui

    I think RE6 proves that certain games just can’t be judged from 1 person’s standpoint (ie reviews). Its ether positive or negative reviews so it seems like its all 50/50. Its up to the player’s perspective to decide if its a good game or not. I’ve read a few of these reviews and disagree with what they say are bad points yet at the same time disagree with what they say are good points as well.
    I like RE6, enjoyed the demo and I’ll take my time on getting the platinum.

    Hype or no hype I decided what I like, buy and play. Reviews be damned.  

    • xMCXx

       A review is only an opinion, as well.

      Also, I’d really like to play the demo(to make myself a picture) but, alas, only for PS+ members….

      • KingNigma

        The RE6 demo? Anyone can get it. Not just PS+ members

        • xMCXx

           Seriously?
          Last time I looked, a few days ago, it was only PS+-Members.

  • PrinceHeir

    while i love the demo, i think it’s time for capcom to reevaluate themselves now.

    i mean 600 people work on this and this is the final product :

    definitely the ideas got to spread out especially with that amount of people working.

    well after reading some thoughts and impressions. i still will be buying this game…. 

    in sometime in the near future(maybe december??)

    im getting the Anthology one since it has voucher for various RE games(i might give out some since i already own RE1-3 on PSN and RE5 Gold Edition retail version) but definitely this will be my LAST Resident Evil game unless capcom either goes back to the REmake/RE0/RE1-3/CV style of play. but yeah shame RE is suffering a some sort of identity crisis like Silent Hill now.

    and if you decided to outsource this franchise except for RE7, then this franchise is as good as dead.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/XQSNDA4V47UI7LX6IGLZJGP424 Moondrops

       you said you like the demo but won’t buy anymore RE games… that makes no sense. so do you like the game or not? if you liked the RE6 demo then why do you have a problem with the same formula for future RE games?

      • PrinceHeir

        because im tired of capcom reusing the RE4 style now.

        even though i love the demo, i know i can’t just like this style for so long.

        that’s why RE6 is my LAST. because i have enough RE4 style for now.

        plus RE wasn’t like RE4 in the first place. i was hoping they would go back to the original forumal after RE5, but nope same kinda style with a different paint.

        it’s a shame capcom has no clue on where the series need to go.

        • http://profile.yahoo.com/XQSNDA4V47UI7LX6IGLZJGP424 Moondrops

          you just said you love the demo… if you are sick of the re4 style why do you love RE6? and you used love not like, which seems to indicate you are really fond of re6

          i don’t see the problem here. games like everything on this planet, will change, there is no way the series will go back to the ps1 days of tank controls.

          • PrinceHeir

            you know what i actually love RE4 style, is just that the style is being overused now.

            RE6 will be my last RE game because i think it’s is the final evolution of RE4 style.

            i mean i played RE4 many MANY times now. probably one of the few games i finished multiple times, looking every nook and cranny like MGS and Deus Ex HR.

            even though it’s missing the atmosphere and pacing, the controls are awesome(despite being hard to get used to it)

            and yes RE6 is a great game(even just playing the demo, i played it many times. the Dragon’s Dogma demo suck though)

            though if they used another RE4 style, then that’s it no more for me. because i don’t think RE should rely too much on RE4 style despite how awesome it is.plus where’s the horror?? i mean even in RE4 there’s not much horror other than the regenerators(man the dungeon and laboratory rooms where scary as hell though)

            not really, they REmake style is actually awesome and can still hang on in today’s gaming generation.

            heck they could go ahead and copy Silent Hill 3 which feels like REmake in terms of controls and style(heck you could even move and attack enemies there)

    • http://twitter.com/gamesreflexoes Celebrinando

      say this to the RE6 5 millions copies sold until now, the best Capcom fast selling game of all times!

  • http://twitter.com/gamesreflexoes GR+ Entretenimento

    Will sell well? The public liked? Is ok

  • DrForbidden

    Wow. It seems like RE6 is really divisive. I’ll still get it, but I’m waiting for the Complete edition next year.

  • EspadaKiller

    Doesn’t matter, still enjoying the game with my friend in online co-op.

    I do have to agree that the graphics looks quite bad this time round, I find it even worst than RE5 :O  And the controls is kinda bad as well. 

  • DrForbidden

    Yup, it doesn’t look good for Capcom either. The more ‘nerd’ sites like Joystiq and Destructoid appear to give the lowest scores.

  • xMCXx

    Capcom is kinda shizophrenic.
    On one hand they make a game like Dragon’s Dogma out of the blue, a full new IP and brave experiment.
    And on the other hand they make RE6, in which they go the lazy route and full-on mainstream boom, pang, pow Michael Bay-routine.

    • Kobracon

      Capcom is a big ass company. I’m very sure there are multiple divisions. Sadly the “Milking” division is far larger than the “Innovate” division.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/XQSNDA4V47UI7LX6IGLZJGP424 Moondrops

      re5 was the most successful re game of all time, what did you think they were gonna do for the next big installment.

      i’m really surprised that you are surprised capcom is going this route.

  • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

    Buying the Gold Edition with all the DLC Capcom are shoving down MS’s ass one month early (30 days 360 exclusivity on each DLC) will be included in the PS3 version for free.

  • Kobracon

    Welp I’ve seen mixed reviews for a big game before and most of it boils down to if they were an old skool fan or not. I didn’t have the time to read through all of them but I’m sure the low scores are by the jaded fans. I’m sure there are one or two new players that gave it a low score though.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XQSNDA4V47UI7LX6IGLZJGP424 Moondrops

    its all just opinions. play the demo for yourself, if you like it buy it, simple.

    leon’s and jake’s demo segments were nice, chris… its was call of duty plain and simple.
     

    • Luna Kazemaru

       because shooting and doing ‘army; things is call of duty. Lets just go say every shooter made that deals with army based combat ect is call of duty while we are at it.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/XQSNDA4V47UI7LX6IGLZJGP424 Moondrops

        for me the chris demo felt a lot like cod, to you maybe not. that’s what i meant by opinions.

        • z_merquise

          What Luna means is that it’s not correct to say that every military games are called ‘Call of Duty’.

          Similar on how people would always say that Tomb Raider is ‘Uncharted with boobs’ or every 3D fantasy action games are God of War clones, pre- and post- GOW 1.

          • http://profile.yahoo.com/XQSNDA4V47UI7LX6IGLZJGP424 Moondrops

            thats how i felt when i played the demo. if you said you got a gears of war vibe then thats your opinion. it doesn’t mean mine was wrong or yours if right, its just how we saw things differently.

            i actually think tomb raider and uncharted are totally different games. i like both of them, and think they give totally different experiences.

        • Luna Kazemaru

           I don’t see how you can get a CoD feeling out of a TPS but yeah ok.

  • Charlie

    The problem with the Resident Evil franchise “fans”, is that they are extremely conservative in their views. Sure, we could have a classic Resi game with the same great camera angles, survival horror gameplay and excessive terrifying moments which is awesome and all. But what about the sales? We all know that survival games are not nearly as common as they were a decade ago (or not nearly as popular). Also, using the classic Resi gameplay as the core of the game would show no development in the series and feel extremely outdated. I started replaying Resident Evil 2 recently, and let me tell you something, the clunky controls are a nightmare! I guess if I was the head of Capcom I would have followed a “similar” route in terms of gameplay.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/http://www.youtube.com/user/AzureKuwait?feature=mhee AzureFlame24

      We don’t want RE to be like the old ones in gameplay.. Resident Evil 4 was perfect -_- they didn’t follow that path stupid crapcom..

      • http://twitter.com/gamesreflexoes Celebrinando

        say this to the RE6 5 millions copies sold until now, the best Capcom fast selling game of all times

  • Heavenly_King

    The complete game is better than the demo.  It offers better graphics, and the camera is not so close to the characters. Also the animations are better, and the controls more responsive I would say both demos are really old, and that explain the differences.

    It plays like RE5, but you have a lot more mobility.  If you enjoyed RE5 it is a must buy.

  • eilegz

    this its the game of the year, cant understand this review, how can this game be a dissaster

    RE has been an action based series for years now? we shouldn’t mix up
    preferences with professional critiques. Seems to me that most of the
    critics (Kotaku’s, gamespot, destructoid among others) decided to put
    their nostalgia glasses on and trash RE6 because it’s not survival
    horror…completely forgetting the existence of the critically acclaimed
    RE4 and the well liked RE5. That’s not how you judge a sequel that has
    improved upon what RE4 and RE5 offered, evolving on the modern action
    series….which also has its audience too. A lot of RE fans like what
    the series has become. Sure, RE6 isn’t perfect, but calling it bad on
    the basis that it’s not survival horror?

    So you’re telling me that the majority of people didn’t like RE4 and
    RE5? You’re telling me that most hardcore RE fans think both games are
    terrible? The acclaim and scores both installments got sure didn’t
    relfect that. If most people truly didn’t like both games, it would’ve
    caused a split as RE6. It just so happens that most of the so-called
    critics who reviewed RE6 decided to be nostalgic and completely forget
    that RE4 and 5 existed. As you know RE4 is critically acclaimed and a
    damn good game, even in this day. Of course Capcom is going to listen to
    RE4 fans and players as it was revolutionary and a necessary evolution
    to the series. Imagine if RE remained survival horror with the same
    aspects of the classics to this very day, you would see countless fans
    grow tired and stale.

    There is a HUGE difference between preference and objective
    evaluation. I also acknowledged that some (emphasis on some) fans don’t
    like the action RE titles. I’ll even say that they’re a minority
    considering the good reviews and sales RE4 and 5 achieved. As I said,
    it’s fine if you don’t like the action RE games. You don’t speak for the
    ENTIRE RE fanbase. The “we” you’re talking about only refers to part of
    the fanbase. As I said, it’s fine if you prefer the PS1 style of play
    over action RE games. That’s called a PREFERENCE. But going about
    calling RE4, 5 and 6 BAD games just because they’re not survival horror
    titles is unfair and biased…that’s not how you OBJECTIVELY REVIEW AND
    LOOK AT GAMES. This is exactly like comparing The Legend of Zelda NES to
    Skyward Sword directly. No frame of reference and not fair as the eras
    are different and the series evolved through the years with a different
    style of play.

    A lot of RE fans accepted RE4 as is and moved on with the action
    focus. You would be living under a rock if you didn’t expect RE6 to be
    action and follow what RE4 and 5 set. The ‘we’ you’re referring to is
    not the majority. But I advise you guys to wise up and give it a chance
    instead of listening to these 30 year old critics who have their
    nostalgia glasses on and think we’re living in the late 90s. For some
    reason, some people just forgot that RE left pure survival horror since
    RE3 many years ago and evolved to what it is now. Capcom has evolved RE.
    The remaining fans who have put RE1 & 2 on a pedestal should evolve
    too and accept RE6 for what it is; an dramatic horror title. Evaluate
    and review it as such.

    Does borderlands 2 a better rpg than xenoblade, final fantasy or
    others? NOPE its boderlands 2 a better FPS than call of duty halo and
    other? NOPE. But guess what its one of the best game of this year next
    to resident evil 6

    RE it wont be the best action or survival horror game but its fun,
    have decent campaign, improve everything over re4 and re5, giving a low
    score and some negative criticism its just unfair….

    this its the game of the year, cant understand this review, how can this game be a dissaster

    RE has been an action based series for years now? we shouldn’t mix up
    preferences with professional critiques. Seems to me that most of the
    critics (Kotaku’s, gamespot, destructoid among others) decided to put
    their nostalgia glasses on and trash RE6 because it’s not survival
    horror…completely forgetting the existence of the critically acclaimed
    RE4 and the well liked RE5. That’s not how you judge a sequel that has
    improved upon what RE4 and RE5 offered, evolving on the modern action
    series….which also has its audience too. A lot of RE fans like what
    the series has become. Sure, RE6 isn’t perfect, but calling it bad on
    the basis that it’s not survival horror?

    So you’re telling me that the majority of people didn’t like RE4 and
    RE5? You’re telling me that most hardcore RE fans think both games are
    terrible? The acclaim and scores both installments got sure didn’t
    relfect that. If most people truly didn’t like both games, it would’ve
    caused a split as RE6. It just so happens that most of the so-called
    critics who reviewed RE6 decided to be nostalgic and completely forget
    that RE4 and 5 existed. As you know RE4 is critically acclaimed and a
    damn good game, even in this day. Of course Capcom is going to listen to
    RE4 fans and players as it was revolutionary and a necessary evolution
    to the series. Imagine if RE remained survival horror with the same
    aspects of the classics to this very day, you would see countless fans
    grow tired and stale.

    There is a HUGE difference between preference and objective
    evaluation. I also acknowledged that some (emphasis on some) fans don’t
    like the action RE titles. I’ll even say that they’re a minority
    considering the good reviews and sales RE4 and 5 achieved. As I said,
    it’s fine if you don’t like the action RE games. You don’t speak for the
    ENTIRE RE fanbase. The “we” you’re talking about only refers to part of
    the fanbase. As I said, it’s fine if you prefer the PS1 style of play
    over action RE games. That’s called a PREFERENCE. But going about
    calling RE4, 5 and 6 BAD games just because they’re not survival horror
    titles is unfair and biased…that’s not how you OBJECTIVELY REVIEW AND
    LOOK AT GAMES. This is exactly like comparing The Legend of Zelda NES to
    Skyward Sword directly. No frame of reference and not fair as the eras
    are different and the series evolved through the years with a different
    style of play.
