Despite all these improvements, my experience with Resident Evil 6 still resembles a bell curve. It shows a brief glimpse of great promise before squandering it all away by repeating the same mistakes made in the last game. The Leon/Helena campaign is the best of the lot. The initial few chapters therein capture the essence of its Survival-Horror roots, harking back to the suspense and tension created in the first three games. The updated controls and inventory system work well with the slow, deliberate build-up characterised by sparse action and shambling zombies. In fact, the first 40 minutes of the campaign were so genuinely interesting and atmospheric that this game would have easily deserved an 8/10, if it had just stuck to the same formula.

If you think this was bad, the Chris/Piers campaign takes this brand of mindless action and dials it all the way to 11. There's hardly a moment of respite, with a relentlessly boring onslaught of pointless chases and annoying boss fights garnished with the drudgery of repetitive QTEs. This campaign underscores the poor cover-based combat, dodging mechanics, and the general travails of re-purposing controls meant for a Survival-Horror game in an action-packed Third-Person Shooter.
I can't think of many things that can compare to the agony of taking down an infuriatingly tough and abundant new enemy class dubbed as J'avo, which mutate into tougher and grotesque new abominations, even as you run low on ammo. This is a textbook example of how sexing up the Survival-Horror zombie world with action straight out of a Call of Duty game can screw up a formula that seemed to be working for the quiet bits of the Leon campaign.
Whoa, dude, at least buy her dinner first!
What you are left with is a tasteless pastiche of video game cliches that betrays the veterans of the franchise. Even in its quest to achieve popular approval, it isn't remotely competent enough to win over any newbies either. This game, then, is a failure on most counts and will only please the sort of die-hard fans who tend to buy anything with the Resident Evil sticker on it.
