I find it absolutely disturbing that people are defending this game and saying that it isn't dog crap.
Look I've played games that get flamed on all the time. I don't judge till I play them. I loved The Saboteur and Banjo Kazooie Nuts and Bolts. Would I tell you they aren't as bad as reviewers say? No. Because the faults are still there but me as a gamer avoid them as much as possible or tolerate them.
Resident Evil 6 is a different beast from Resident Evil 5. Resident Evil 5 WAS a step back from Dead Space but it still had the story and plot from the previous 4 RE titles.
Resident Evil 6 tries to appeal to the West by including jets, overpowered melee, Micheal Bay, excessive God of War QTEs, and Uncharted moments where you run toward the screen. All of these elements play poorly. Like Brad, if you play the game long enough you'll be able to be really good at the game...but that doesn't mean it's ok. Like a bad teacher that teaches horribly but you still come up with your own system to understand the teacher. In the end the teacher is terrible.
If Resident Evil 6 was more of Resident Evil 5 that would be awesome. Capcom saw the numbers that games like Uncharted, God of War, Call of Duty, and Gears of War. They wanted some of those numbers (somewhat succeeded because they got 4.5 million units sold) but ended up making a beast that tries WAY to hard to become its counterparts.
In the end, Resident Evil 6 is a step-back from Resident Evil 5. All its iterations become more like a chore and it becomes exhausting to play.
