Resident Evil 6 is the heavily anticipated addition to the legendary survival horror series, bringing back your favourite characters and the best in spine tingling suspense and action. This game revels in a global horror experience combined with chilling, adrenaline fuelled gameplay, combat, and atmosphere. Not to mention, as always, a rich and heavily textured storyline that truly draws you into the game. Welcome to Resident Evil 6.
The game is set ten years after the Raccoon City incident, and there are both new and familiar faces returning to the fray. You will have the ability to play as more than one protagonist, and each of these playable characters come with their own unique storyline, companion, motivation, and perspective on the events occurring.
One such hero is Leon S. Kennedy. You will find yourself in Washington, D.C. with the President of the United States, who is planning on revealing the truth behind the events of Raccoon City in the hopes of preventing future bioterrorist activity. However, a bioterrorist attack is launched at your location, mutating the President and setting in motion another battle for Leon's survival. Meanwhile, another hero has just touched down in China, which is also under threat of another bioterrorist attack. This hero is Chris Redfield, a Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance member trying to regain control of the outbreaks wherever he can. These storylines will eventually overlap, leading to a greater plot and conclusion.
The gameplay within Resident Evil 6 is action oriented, although returns to favouring the survival horror aspect that made the series so legendary to begin with. The signature over the shoulder style camera has been incorporated once more, which gives more dynamic views of the revamped close quarters combat moves, as well as the ability to wield dual pistols. These combat improvements and introductions add to the adrenaline fuelled experience that is fighting for your life against hordes of zombies, and to the exhilerating experience that is playing Resident Evil 6.

The Resident Evil 6: Steelbook is an epic adventure, with 4 scripts, 8 heroes and a million zombies! It's a great game from Capcom. It took to me a long time to beat it, but the only thing I want is to do it again!
Resident Evil 6: Steelbook is a really great action game! It's really good if you are a fan of the Resident Evil universe and like the characters. There is no horror here, only some moments of stress and hectic game play. There's fine action and good graphics.
Great Game. Great price. For me it is one off the greatest games ever and one of the best Resident Evil Games. 5 stars
Undoubtedly the worst the Resident Evil that I have played. It is a shame that such a good saga has come to this. I hope that CAPCOM return to the Resident Evil of the origins soon!
Purchased this as a collectors item. Certainly the metal case is better than the normal plastic edition. However the booklet inside the case was thin, 4 pages thin. It has 2 dvd for the game and no extra goodies. It all depends when you see value for the case being metal.
Resident evil has clearly moved on from the old day's, it's become more about the action than the scare and more about body count than puzzles. But this isn't a bad thing, this game is great if it didn't have resident evil as it's title but as it does I only gave it 4 stars because it is lacking in the old school feel of res and a lack of puzzles but the number of zombies you fight is great and the action sequences are great aswel.
Resident Evil 6 is no longer the same game as it was in its first phase. The first were masterpieces, but now the games have gone too much to the shoot 'em up side.
Actually I didn't expect to recieve the game that fast this is my first time buying from zavvi, and I am very satisfied..... exact item, fast shipping, reasonable price ..... so what else do you need???!! thank you zavvi.... :)
Capcom have learned how to tell a story. If you are a fan of the RE universe and know the characters this is a blast! But unfortunately the QuickTimeEvent-based gameplay is so frustrating at times that I fear that newcomers won't stick for long.
Resident Evil 6: Steelbook is a far cry from the initial installments. With so much content control issues, gameplay can be overlooked. This game is a blast from start to finish and with high production values that are comparable to a Hollywood blockbuster. This isn't Resident Evil anymore but definitely a step in the right direction. All I can say is bring on Resident Evil 7!
I've been playing Resident Evil 6 for a few days now, unfortunately I feel Capcom and the games developers have failed to learn any lessons from their previous games. I'm a big fan of the series and feel kind of let down by the latest release. The problems start with the trivial rookie errors; for a start you are bogged down by tedious requests to "press A" "press START" for no reason! Constantly having to accept a "save successful" message, yet you can't actually save the game at any point you like. The chapters are far too long, it takes over an hour per chapter! You can't actually pause the game at all! The old market system of purchasing your weapons, storing them and deciding which you'd like to use is gone, so you are bullied into using all the weapons. And your struggle to have the space to store even ammo for these weapons. The RE5 store/safe worked much better; you also have no choice on upgrading weapons or outfits. The story lines are much the same and pretty monotonous, it's also annoying and uninformative. The skill system is far too limited and very vague. On a plus side the game looks great. The game play mechanic is much smoother, and the AI system much smarter. It's a shame Capcom seem to have removed all that was good about RE4 and RE5, and just hoped bigger would be better. The fact is that it could and should have been better!
I have all the previous Resident Evil games, and hesitated a bit about buying Resident Evil 6: Steelbook as I'd read some negative reviews, but I love it! I haven't stopped playing since it arrived, recommended.
Resident Evil 6 is a very well put together game with its 3 story lines following the most popular characters from the earlier games. Although i am yet to compete RE6 I have settled into the story really well and this game never fails to make me jump at certain parts, so it still holds onto the true aspect of the Resident Evil franchise. I highly recomend this game to anyone who likes a good shoot-em-up-zombie-killer-thriller of a game!
This game really was worth the wait! Incredible!
Resident Evil is awesome! I've been waiting for this game for ages, and now I can't stop playing it, it's amazing!
Resident Evil 6 brings together some old characters with new concepts and gaming styles. It is very well designed with little finishing touches that made me smile. The title system and customised dog tags would be particularly good for those gamers who like to play online and multiplayer, plus the skill point system helps to give you a challenge or a break when appropriate. With a classic like Resident Evil you need to find the unique balance between old mechanics everyone's finally gotten used to and new maps, weapons, and action. Yes it can get very 'trigger happy cut scene' at times, however it's nice to feel involved, especially to keep you on your toes like this action horror/survival game should. All in all this new addition to the family mixes things up and sometimes makes you feel you've landed a head shot, whilst the rest of the time sees you scrambling on the floor wrestling for your life. My tip for anyone wondering whether to play is this: if you're one of these edge of your seat gamers that likes playing soldier and survivor, give it a go!
Good story line with great graphics and video play. Controls let me down a little as it feels sluggish at some points (I.E fighting bosses). Overall a great game.
I'm a massive fan of the Resident Evil games and have been since the first Resident Evil. I thought judging by the fantastic reviews of 4 and 5... could 6 live up to them? And boy has it! The interlinking campaigns of Leon Chris Jake and Ayda where a real addition to the games overall storyline, you can play through them again and again only to find out more information that you might have missed the first time round. I really enjoyed all the campaigns and am now shooting my way through more zombies and javo in the mercenaries mode. The thing I like about Resident Evil and Capcom is that they take their time and bring out an awesome game like this and the previous ones. I say now bring on the hordes again in Resident Evil 7.
Resident Evil 6 is brilliant, a vast improvement over the horrible controls of number 5. Gameplay is excellent and the graphics are amazing! Co-op is brilliant although it can be clumsy sometimes: if you get too close to each other you can end up knocking each other over very easily. All in all full marks!
Resident Evil 6 is a brilliant game! Great game play and at a great price. Definitely recommend!
