    RIghts the Wrongs of the Past

    I'm going to give two disclaimers at the beginning of this review. One is that I've only ever played the PS1 Resident Evil game before this game. The other is that I spent little time at all with this version of the game. Taking into account these two facts, I'm not really fit to review these version as a game, but rather as a port, which is what this review entails. Resident Evil 6 originally came out in 2012, and coming from the divisive Resident Evil 5 it was under heavy scrutiny, and was trashed as a result. The core gameplay from that version is mostly unchanged here except for one aspect I'll cover soon, so if you hated it back then this version won't change your opinion. What it does change, however, is that the game is in 1080p at 60 frames per second. I'll explain what this means for those less technologically engaged. 1080p refers to resolution or amount of pixels on the screen, which is 1920 pixels by 1080 pixels, compared to the original 1280 pixels x 720 pixels is ran at, which is about 2.25 times more detail, and looks much cleaner. 60 frames per second refers to the amount of times the game takes in input per second and refreshes the screen, which is twice as much as the originals 30 frames per second. This actually has a huge effect on the responsiveness of the game, the only real change in gameplay. These two factors make the game look pretty darn great compared to the originals release, and while doesn't look better than native PS4 games, is pretty darn good looking. In addition, this version includes all the DLC, which includes single player and multiplayer, as well as the old mercenaries mode, the original campaign, and local and online co-op, although you can only play with other PS4 owners, so your friends would need to upgrade two. In conclusion, this port looks good, feels good, and is a great value compared to the old release, and would recommend it wholeheartedly to fans of Resident Evil 6, and would encourage fans of 3rd person shooters to give this definitive and cheap edition a try.

    Great Action Game!

    I really enjoy this game despite its shortcomings. The game seems very unfocused because of the 3 campaigns (4 if you count Ada's). It's almost like the developers tried to please all fans by making each campaign focus on aspects from past games in the series that were popular such as RE3: Nemisis, RE2, and RE5. Leon's campaign focuses on Horror, Chris's focuses on action, and Jake's focuses on survival. While it's awesome that you get to play as 6 characters (8 with Ada's campaign) it makes the game as a whole very inconsistent. It's still a blast to play though. It's much more enjoyable with a friend. I really like the new move sets that each character can perform. You can counter attack, slide, dodge roll, take cover (though it's not very useful except for in Chris' and Jake's campaigns, and the aiming is kinda wonky), shoot while moving, and sneak attack. The weapons aren't upgradable anymore, but you can purchase "Skills" that can increase attacks, defense, ammo drop rates, etc. The bosses are over the top and, for the most part, fun to fight. One boss in Chris' campaign in particular was very awesome. The setting was claustrophobic and it played out like a game of cat and mouse. Overall, I feel this is a great game in the Resident Evil series and worth buying on current gen consoles if you didn't buy it the first time around. Otherwise, I'd say skip if you already own a PS3/Xbox360 version because even though the textures are slightly better, runs at native 1080p and the frame rate is at 60fps, it's still the same game.

    An Underrated Gem

    Resident Evil 6 makes it debut on the Playstation 4 and, while it's not a new title, the game itself is a must-have for any Resident Evil fan. Yes, it's true that critics upon its initial release didn’t receive the game warmly yet it was, nevertheless, a hit amongst fans and, really, who would you rather listen to? Combining elements from both Resident Evil 4 and 5 into a great amalgam of different characters and playing styles, Resident Evil 6 really gives the player a diverse experience that is as rewarding as it is challenging. For those uninitiated with the title at all, Resident Evil 6 plays similarly to Resident Evil 4 and 5 while, thematically, it ties together a lot of loose ends from the aforementioned games. In other words, you can expect a mixture of horror and action gameplay with a strong emphasis on atmosphere as a whole. A split-screen couch co-op mode is available that is a blast to play with a friend or loved one although the single player mode is just as engaging so, either way, you'll be having a good time. This particular edition of the game has been given the HD treatment and it shows - the graphics are excellent considering they are from a generation ago and the frame-rate increase is flawless. Overall, Resident Evil 6 is a great conclusion to the series thus far (as we're all waiting with bated breath for Resident Evil 7, no doubt) that will satisfy the expectations of anyone who enjoyed Resident Evil 4 and/or 5. A highly recommended addition to any horror connoisseur’s collection!

    A good remaster

    Resident Evil 6 is considered the weakest of the Resident Evil main franchise. There are many reasons for this such as the Michael Bay stylized frequent explosions and set pieces to the rampant Quick Time Events. The story isn't the best and there is a lot of backtracking with all the individual campaigns. For those who favor the traditional survivor horror experience, you will find it strange to be using cover shooting in a Resident Evil game. Nevertheless, the game's combat system is more fleshed out and being able to shoot, while moving is a huge plus compared to earlier games (the Revelation games have adopted this). The more in-depth melee and countering system gives you more option aside from just using your guns. The game's story is also a decent length with four campaigns each lasting about five hours each. Fortunately, you don't have to babysit your A.I. partner though the game is best played in co-op. The best part about this remaster is that the game runs at a higher framerate that usually hits 60 fps. For RE6, this is a huge improvement since the game's combat is much more faster paced compared to earlier entries. This version also includes all the DLC for mercenaries and the various mode. If you haven't played RE6 yet, this is the version to get and for the price it's definitely worth picking up given its wealth of content.

    It's ok in my opinion

    The graphics look better but still aren't the best but that's not my issue with this game. I feel the controls aren't well utilized and the story isn't captivating enough to keep me wanting to play it through. The extras and price point makes you want to pick it up especially if you said no to the last gen version but I just don't see myself playing it through. Leon's campaign is probably the best out of all the others because it sticks to the horror part for the most part. The leveling system is not good to me at all. I didn't like re5 but I did like the leveling of guns and in this game leveling seems to be lacking. I would say if you haven't played the last gen then pick this one up if you want a cheap game to play and want to add to the re series of games you've played and completed. The extras and price point makes it worth it especially with best buy rewards with the 20% off. Otherwise pass and never look back if you think you will get the best RE game ever because this game is definitely not it.

    Why so much hate?

    Don't know why people have so much hate towards this game. There's nothing wrong with making this an action game. Based on the scale of the story they had no choice. Each RE game got progressively larger in scale, you can't make it a survival covert horror game when the story is such a large scale in RE6. Just because they made RE6 an action game, doesn't mean the RE series is changed forever, it's just changed for this game. RE5 was also very action-oriented but it didn't get nowhere near as much hate as RE6. RE6 is a great action game in its own right. This remaster is excellent in terms of frame rate, resolution and graphics. The gameplay remains as great as the original. There's also new modes like an amped up Mercenaries No Mercy mode. I recommend this game to anyone especially at this price, can't complain. I'm expecting this to be the same if not better for the RE5 and RE4 remasters.

    Fun Co-Op Game Remastered for an Unbeatable Price

    Many long time fans of the Resident Evil game series were disappointed with the original release of this game for PS3 and Xbox 360, but don't let this sway you from giving it a play. Resident Evil 6 is fantastically remastered in its clarity and impressive 60 frames per second. The game plays very well for originally coming out in 2012. It tackles 4 different and fittingly long story lines. Each have unique gameplay experiences. Individual campaign stories interweave with one another, being led by new and veteran characters from the series. The campaign is fun and even (YES) creepy and frightening at times (especially Leon's story). Grab a friend and play co-op from beginning to end, it's even more fun! I've had a great time playing this game. For being a well-remastered edition costing only $15 - $20, you can't go wrong!

    Fun local co-op

    Resident Evil 6 offers a fun local/multiplayer co-op experience. There is four campaigns which can all be played with a friend. The story is straight forward and will not leave you in awe honestly. Pros: Coop/multiplayer. Very few game supports local coop which is why I got this game. The price, affordable/cheap. Includes all the DLC. Fun MP/local gamemodes. Graphics is good and the voice acting brings the classic voices from character we like playing (Leon from RE4, Ada Wong, Chris Redfield etc). Cons: Resolution when playing local coop has black boarders and limits your view. Makes it very difficult playing from a distance. The campaign story is quite weak, especially when compared to the story/plot twist/moments from the old Resident Evil games. You won't find that true RE story experience we all love.
