Dear Survival Horror Fan Club,
I finished Resident Evil 6, and love it!!! Sure the boss recycling is annoying and the boss battles became exasperating and monotonous, and there were some less polished sequences, but overall I found the game awesome.
Resident Evil 6's graphics, complimented by a nice quantity of zombies and mutated foes, great enviroments (like Tall Oaks and China), some heart wrenching moments, a serviceable and creative gameplay, and plenty of emotions in its rollercoaster ride style of pacing, provided me a great time!
I played it in singleplayer, with the AI companion, and for the first time in a Resident Evil game, I can say it didn't deter me from having fun, unlike Sheva did. To be fair Sheva was only part of my problem with RE5, being the rest of my complains centered around the severely miniscule inventory and the cooperative focused boss battles.
For the first time I can get behind this direction for the Resident Evil franchise. Of course I would love that the game was slower paced, scarier, and zombie-centric, but I'm not displeased with the new direction.
Survival horror was awesome, at the time it was invented and florished, but... right now I don't have the patience to either survive through the long hours to wrap my head around the puzzles, or consult a faq each five minutes of playing.
So, without further ado, I hereby surrender my Survival Horror fan card.
