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.
While it's admirable that Capcom tried to make the game appealing to the largest possible audience, it was unnecessary. Games should be made not to generate the most income, but to be unique.
