    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!

    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.

    Resident Evil 6 PS4

    Resident Evil 6 for the PS4 is basically the same game that released for the PS3 but with better graphics, so if you're expecting something new or different you'll be disappointed. The graphics are improved, it has a good story and can be fun to play, but the cover system, inventory, and upgrade system can be a chore to use. Also, the game has a strong action focus which will turn off many fans of the older Resident Evil games. If you like action games you should consider picking this up, but if you already have it for an older console there may be little to entice you to buying this.

    RE Variety

    Resident Evil 6 contains 4 different campaigns. This is a huge game. It offers variety. So if you like shooters such as Call of Duty, action set pieces like Uncharted or the classic creepy RE style, it's all here. Plus you have the return of several fan favorite characters such as Leon, Chris and Sherry. All released DLC is included. This version is also the PC port, which runs at 60fps and full 1080p so it looks better than the previous PS3/Xbox360 release.

    The best port of RE6 yet

    While opinions of Resident 6 being a "resident evil" game are mixed, this small review is focused solely on the port aspects of the game compared to the original PS3 and 360 versions. Graphic quality has definitely been bumped up in clarity and resolution, and the frame rate is a steady 60FPS for almost the entire game. Audio presentation is the same, with Dolby TS supported from the previous generation. All the dlc is included with this port as well, but its primarily for multiplayer/mercenaries. For $20, the value honestly can't be beat.

    I can not believe people say this game is not good because it has too much action. I love the action and the fact that it has four campaigns is awesome. Note that this is not a remastered version. This is simply a ps3 to ps4 port but it has all the DLC and a new mode to play. I love it and have had fun playing with a friend online. The game looks great, not ps4 great but good enough. I highly recommend this to all my ps4 friends. If your looking for a fun co-op game with action through out, here it is.

    All Resident Evils starting to show up on PS4

    This game is not the best in the series, it is in fact one of the weakest, BUT for $20, you get the game, ALL of its DLC, and the game can be loads of fun if playing CO-OP. If you didnt play this, at this price you cant really go wrong! Its worth collecting all main RE games. 0,1, (2 is being developed), (Hoping 3 is announced @ E3), 4 is this Fall, 5 is this summer and 6 is right now...on PS4! cant ask for more. well maybe Dino Crisis Remasters...but thats real long shot.

    Resident Evil 6, made better

    Resident Evil 6 has been ported to the next gen systems but it goes with saying that updates were applied, for the better. 1080P Resolution and 60 Frames per second make this title one of the franchises most action-packed games and slick to boot. The story remains the same, but what you get for a budget priced game is a much smoother playing and graphically superior version than its last gen counterpart. A must for any Resident Evil fan!

    Awesome / Different RE Play

    This game was very different from the Resident Evil play we are used to. It is more of an Action game and less of a puzzle / thriller. There are multiple story lines within the game, all that intertwine, and once you finish one-you can move on to the next. Which is awesome. So after you finish the Leon and Helena mission there are 3 other story lines. I played most of the game split screen co-op mode too. Which was fun.

    I bought all of the Resident Evil games on the PS4 because I was curious on how they would compare to the PC versions I already own to be honest they are very close With the exception of antialiasing differences and some small control issues on RE4 they are really quite good if you own a gaming pc get that if you have only a PS4 you are getting a really close experience

    Great two player game

    I was very happy with this game for several reasons: 1. It's a two player game. There are very few fun two player games on the PS4 and this one was a good one. 2. The game is pretty true to the previous resident evil games. The game play is great and the scare factor is pretty good too. All in all I really love this game. I highly recommend it.

    This is a very good game. Very scary so if you're not a horror fan like me. Don't buy. This game will make you look over your shoulders. Its very engaging. I recommend playing two player because its hard for one person. My daughter and I are doing very good. Its a hard game. But its worth every moment of the game play.

    Bringing such a focus on fast past gaming to a franchise known for suspense might not have been the most fan pleasing decision, but I still find the game play to offer some satisfaction. And the ability to play through with your friends in the co-op feature is something I really enjoy.

    Just bought a PS4 and didn't have any games so bought a few. This one was fun and nice that two players can play at once without having to go online. Multiple difficulty levels...just finished the lowest level and I found that challenging enough..can't wait to increase difficulty.

    I'm a big fan of the Resident Evil series so it was a no-brainer for me. Had to get it and add it to my collection. Enjoyed it on the ps3 and definitely enjoyed it even more on the ps4. Better graphics and improvements at a very cheap price, what more can you ask for? It's a great buy.

    Still very fun after the years it has been out, one of the more unique resident evil games. It offers four different campaigns with four different protagonists in a full story that they tie together. Really fun, if you haven't played it is fun especially for the price.

    I played this on 360 and I loved it. This game is definitely worth getting if you enjoyed it on Xbox 360 or PS3. Any resident evil fan should pick this up for PS4 or Xbox One. I may also get this for Xbox One since I enjoyed the game so much.
