An excellent Resident Evil story told from several fan favorite character's point of view. With four separate yet similar campaigns, Resident Evil 6 delivers plenty of gaming to go around.

pro

Shoot and move at the same time! This long complained about and requested gameplay mechanic is now incorporated.

pro

Camera angles for cutscenes and some in game combat is very impressive. They make you enjoy these moments even more.

pro

Sound in this game is superb all around. Great voice acting is spot on even if the script is not at times. Environmental and creature effects top it all off delivering a great blend with the music which is perfect for every situation you encounter.

pro

Collectible figures and medals leave plenty for those wanting to quench that completion need.

pro

Standard Resident Evil online modes are still here with cooperative being the main one. Three of the campaigns were designed around cooperative gameplay. Agent hunt mode mixes things up and lets you play as an infected.

con

In numerous campaigns you find yourself replaying the same redundant set pieces without discovering new plot material. Having one campaign and jumping between characters would suit the game better.

con

Options are nice, but Resident Evil 6 has too many menus for you to navigate through. Simply starting a normal game feels like a bad QTE (quick time event).

con

With Resident Evil 4 helping pioneer QTEs it is really disturbing to see how poorly Resident Evil 6 incorporates them. The QTEs are very limiting and often do not represent any action your character is doing. Several sections of the game also overuse these poorly crafted QTEs.

con

Multi-tiered Boss fights drag on through many chapters and numerous battles while not innovating or expanding on them in any good way.

con

Partner AI is overpowered. They will never die unless an event in game requires it, and they will never run out of ammo.

con

Camera angles during melee combat can be problematic at times.

con

Horrible low resolution textures are way too frequently mixed in with beautiful textures and lighting.
