Blending action and survival horror, Resident Evil 6 delivers an epic dramatic horror experience. Resident Evil favorites Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield and Ada Wong are joined by new characters, including Jake Muller, to face a new horror, the highly virulent C-virus, as the narrative moves between North America, the war-torn Eastern European state of Edonia and the Chinese city of Lanshiang.

The experience remains largely as flat and as tepid as one might have remembered. It may not be the most forgettable title with the Resident Evil name slapped on — remember Operation Raccoon City…no, anyone? — but it’s arguably one of the flattest in terms of offering up worthwhile moments that aren’t copy-paste’s of other franchise’s notable efforts. Pocketed moments of fun and folly with a co-op buddy aside, there’s little reason to return to the series’ sixth main entry, low price point and all.
It’s not enough to say that Resident Evil 6 is poor as a Resident Evil game. That alone implies there could be a quality experience if fans can get past their preconceptions and feelings of betrayal. No, Resident Evil 6 is poor by the standards of any game, not just the high ones set by its own legacy.
You can't polish a turd, and Resident Evil 6 is proof. This remaster may look the part at points, but its limp collection of lacklustre campaigns will leave you feeling dead inside. A low price point means that co-op enthusiasts may get some mileage out of the Mercenaries mode, but make no mistake, this is still a quivering corpse of a game. Avoid like the C-Virus plague.
