Storyline

The war on bio-terrorism continues as Chris Redfield, Leon Kennedy, and other famous Resident Evil stalwarts battle a seemingly familiar adversary. However, as these veterans of survival horror pursue this latest threat, their nightmare reaches critical mass when it is discovered that it is in fact Ada Wong's dark clone, Carla, who is championing the most deadly bio-weapon yet - the C-Virus. Chris and Leon have eradicated some of the worst viral strains, from Raccoon City and beyond. But can they overcome this most deadly strain yet? Moreover, when push comes to shove, can they shed old compassion and take down their former friends? How will a conflicted young Wesker come to terms with his lineage, and where will his true alliance fall in this deadly chess match? Resident Evil 6, available October 2nd, 2012. Written by Capcom

First Time Both Leon and Chris Would Share Starring Roles in a Resident Evil Game See more »

Goofs

Jake and Sherry easily retrieve their firearms from a normal-looking locker, including all of their supplies from the past six months. This is highly unusual considering that they are held captivated in a place guarded with high security system (which also has electronic locks) and armed J'avos. See more »

Quotes

Derek C. Simmons: Find anything interesting?
Ada Wong: A recording from six months ago.
Derek C. Simmons: Then the trip was worthwhile. What's the matter? You still haven't figured it out? Allow me to clarify. Tomorrow, the U.S. will suffer a bioterrorist attack. After that, China. And then major cities all around the world will suffer the same fate at the hands of Neo-Umbrella's very own Ada Wong.
Ada Wong: If you think I'm going to sit back and be your scapegoat, Simmons, you've got another thing coming.

A decent action game, though it's supposed to be a survival horror
26 December 2012 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

Being a huge fan of RE series, I have played most of them (with the exception of Survivor titles). This year RE fans are in for a threat: two RE titles out in the same year. Unfortunately, the first one, Operation Raccoon City, is truly awful - I don't even think that it deserves a place in RE franchise. It left me skeptical as to whether the second one, announced in mid 2012 not long after the release of RE:ORC, would suffer the same fate.

Fortunately not. RE6 would somehow make up for the disgrace of its older brother.

The biggest surprise in RE6 is that you've got to play four different scenarios - one is unlocked after you finish the first three - with multiple different characters. While multiple scenarios and characters is nothing new to the RE universe, previously it was never taken too deep. Past ones (like RE2 with its famous zapping system) felt almost nothing more than same scenarios only slightly altered for multiple characters. With RE6, Capcom has taken nice steps ahead. Those stories are inter-connect each other - similar to RE4, but not just 2 stories, it's 4 this time - you'll get the idea when, for instance, meeting Leon while playing as Chris, meeting Jake as Chris, and so on. This results in a nice mixture wrapped up in an amazing big story as a whole. Seriously, not many games offer this.

However, RE fans who fell in love with the series after playing the survival horror genre-defining RE1 might be very disappointed. True to form, RE has since left its survival horror roots in its subsequent iterations, but it's RE6 who takes the biggest defect. If you compare it with RE1, the comparison couldn't be bigger: there's no 'challenging' puzzle solving and scattered eerie personal diaries which RE is famous for (Puzzle solving is present here but in much simpler ways).RE6 gameplay is strictly linear - all you have to do is follow the designated path - pretty straightforward, you see. Besides, it has the intense fast-paced gameplay, i.e. most parts of the game consist of running and shooting. I guess it is something Capcom might never think when they created the original RE back in 1996..Needless to say, the legendary box-item placement is nowhere near, replaced with a simpler item-management tablet (not as many things to pick though, besides medicines, magazines, and weapons) Sure, the game has its own scary points, like abominable monsters and creepy creatures which are still omnipresent in this game, not just zombies. But considering how far this game has departed from its survival-horror root by dropping many elements of it, I prefer to call this is an action game rather than a survival horror title.

Above it all, though the genre is misleading, I found the RE6 is quite decent. Its usage of multiple characters in multiple paths through the great story lines for each delivers well, like having 4 games in one title. Fans of shooters should love it. If you are a RE fan, this is worth trying as well, though maybe you have to pretend that this is not a RE title..
