Probably Brad, he seems to really like these games, but I remember him mentioning that despite liking 5 and proclaiming 4 as one of the best games ever, he isn't interested in this one. I don't blame him. I also don't really have any interest in this one.

#6 Posted by FourWude (2261 posts) -

Theere's a reason I've given up on this game. It's just bad... bad with no redeemable quality, like ORC.

#7 Posted by Phatmac (5725 posts) -

I could have told you that Resident Evil 6 won't be that good! It controls bad and the cover system is horrific! I hated the demo!!

#8 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

Oh, this is going to be fun.

#9 Posted by Morningstar (2150 posts) -

Damn, and damn it all again. Another game series down the toilet...

#10 Posted by stryker1121 (1404 posts) -

Wow, that's some honesty for you, although he did deep-six those damning tweets. Shall be a very interesting week next week when RE6 drops. Schadenfreude city. I haven't played the demo but the direction Capcom took the series after RE4 sent up red flags for sure. I'm willing to wait out the reviews besides VanOrd's, but this ain't a good sign..unless you hate Capcom, of couse.

I just replayed RE5 and damn that game is really great the setting was fantastic, and it still looks amazing. For some reason though i'm not excited for this one, i loved both 4 and 5 but i don't know about this one. Maybe all i wanted was another RE game like 4 and 5 but in a different setting, like India or somewhere exotic and unknown.

#12 Posted by spankingaddict (2661 posts) -

I don't buy this hate , or at least don't take it seriously . Re6 is gonna be good , I'm calling it .

#13 Edited by Shookems (474 posts) -

I think Alex put it perfectly when he compared the most recent trailer for this game to the resident evil movies. They seem to be on par in terms of quality.

RE6 is going to blow.

#14 Posted by GentlemanlyGentleman (320 posts) -

I was willing to put up with some of the shit this game was going to throw at me. But now I really don't know.

Are you talking about your demo impressions or do you have an advanced copy? (Not being a wiseass here FYI)

#16 Edited by GunstarRed (5120 posts) -

These were posted days ago, I'm surprised people didn't post this sooner. I'm getting the game, but I have a strange feeling all the hatred is going to be justified.

They were very clearly about RE6 though, one of them mentioned snowmobiles.

#17 Posted by cbarnes86 (556 posts) -

Granted RE5 was very different from the originals, but I really enjoyed it as a game. Not very scary, but fun nonetheless. I played the demo for RE6 and feel it is a more refined RE5 and adds more fear factor to the mix. I will definitely buy this game and more than likely enjoy it quite thoroughly, no matter what reviewers say.

#18 Posted by Shaka999 (470 posts) -

I hated that RE5 forced you to play Co-op with a shitty AI partner. 6 seems to alleviate that issue, but I still need to play the demo. hopefully it's more RE4 than RE5.

#19 Posted by TooWalrus (13169 posts) -

Don't know what they're whining about, that sounds great.

#20 Posted by Brodehouse (9878 posts) -

RE6 has nothing to do with 4 and 5. 4 and 5 were fun TPS games with an interesting movement and upgrade mechanic. 6 is... Like some other kind of game. If anyone lumps this in with 5, they're crazy. 5 was co-op RE4, this is... Something else.

#21 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11631 posts) -

Even as someone who liked RE5, everything about this one has sounded dire.

#22 Posted by TheHumanDove (2523 posts) -

I'm not one who hates the more 'cinematic' experience really. A lot of cutscenes doesn't bother me in the slightest, so I'm not too worried yet

#23 Posted by xaLieNxGrEyx (2605 posts) -

It can't be worse than RE5

#27 Posted by AngelN7 (2970 posts) -

I don't understand why the controls and the camera felt so bad (in the demo at least) to me RE5 was great didn't care for the "can't run and shoot" and for the lack of "horror" the game had very tense moments managing the inventory itself while the game was running made it more frantic , the story was good like a good cheesy B-Movie kinda thing the characters were likable (Josh was awesome) and whatever the fans of the old games either left with 4 action controls or with 5 action pace but this isn't even that is just technical stuff that's really bad and Chris campaign wich is the worst parts of RE5 (zombies with guns, awkward cover system and all that crap) so yeah I'm not expecting much.

Do any major Japanese games ever get bad scores from famitsu? When ever I hear of a famitsu score it is always in the high 30's

Famitsu doesn't score its reviews based on the games. Famitsu scores its reviews based on what the people who will buy the game would want the game to be scored. Every part of Famitsu is advertising designed to make you feel good about buying games.

In these parts, we don't take Famitsu seriously. ;)

For example: they gave Haze 34/40. HAZE! :P

^And that. Don't forget that little detail. :P

#33 Posted by AltonBrown (950 posts) -

PLAY gave it an 88, and OPM gave it a 90. Granted, maybe take those with a grain of salt, being early review scores and all. For what it's worth, I thought the public demo was pretty fun.

#34 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18955 posts) -

Two questions:

1)Who is that guy?

2)Why is RE6 a bad RE game? What's it supposed to do that it doesn't?

Can you elaborate brah?

I feel someone else would be better qualified to answer your 2nd question (If they feel like they can- I certainly don't)- but I can give an answer the first one.

Kevin VanOrd is one of Gamespot's reviewers. He's one of their more popular reviewers actually- especially given how he was with the site ever since a little bit before the Kane and Lynch incident.

#37 Posted by Dallas_Raines (2159 posts) -

Both demos were legitimately bad, so...not a shocker that the game is terrible.

#38 Posted by DeathbyYeti (743 posts) -

I seem to think multiple games in the last year or two have been walk shoot cutscene

Best example is Max Payne 3

#39 Posted by jimmyfenix (3853 posts) -

reviews are opinions , if you hate the game fair enough but you shouldnt shoot the game down cause one guy doesnt like it.

#40 Posted by Rafaelfc (1332 posts) -

I really liked the last demo... I really am curious to see how the Review cycle will play out for this game. And also I am doubly curious as to what Brad's opinion will be (I mostly agree with his opinions on games)

I may get this either way because it's a numbered Resident Evil game, but I may just wait for a discount if word on the street is that it's as terrible as VanOrd made it seem.

@WarlockEngineerMoreDakka: Just so you know 34/40 is a bad score in Famitsu

#42 Edited by WarlockEngineerMoreDakka (432 posts) -

@Bocam said:

But... But...

34/40 = 85%! :P

And it's lowest individual score from the Famitsu reviewers was an 8! XD

Oh wait- that's right, anything under 9.0 / 90% sucks by default. >_>

You may have a point then it seems. :P

(And yet there are some sources that called it a 'glowing' review from Famitsu. Especially since it still got a Famitsu 'Gold award'. :P )

#43 Posted by FirePrince (1763 posts) -

lol, Resident Evil 6.

#44 Posted by Carryboy (647 posts) -

Dont care still hyped!!!

#45 Posted by Sackmanjones (4688 posts) -

So where does it say he's talking about re6?

Already read some glowing reviews of the game. I'm not worried

It's just the assumption everyone's making, since its the only immediate upcoming game we can think of that would be able to match VanOrd's criticisms. (We could be missing something of course- certainly a possibility)

And don't forget the pitfalls of early reviews. ;)

Unless you choose to ignore said pitfalls- in which case, more power to you. :)

You underestimate Capcom, clearly. As someone who hated RE5, this game is building itself to be the worst main entry in the franchise. The demos were atrocious.
#48 Posted by tonnous24 (43 posts) -

I was surprised by how good the latest demo was. I wrote RE6 off at E3 after that demo made it look like trash.

#49 Posted by falserelic (5412 posts) -

I heard that RE6 is going to make people's minds accelerate.

#50 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (4339 posts) -

Well fuck. Kevin is the only reviewer over at Gamespot that I like and looking at that disappoints me. I loved 4 and liked 5, looks like I'll wait for 6 to be dirt cheap on Steam.
