I finally got round to playing RE6 yesterday. Spoilers to follow...
So far, I've only played through Leon's scenario (I played as Helena) and at the beginning it was quite awesome. The outbreak in the American city was very reminiscent of Raccoon City, and they put a lot of effort into making it look like we were actually experiencing an outbreak, by having townspeople running for their lives and disasters breaking out everywhere (unlike the older games where you just start off and there are zombies everywhere and that's it). It really felt like they had taken all the best parts from every RE game I've ever played, and put them all into one.
Then it got to the Chapel, and that was just dull. the puzzles were tedious, even the characters were getting pissed off.
The outbreak on the plane was very cool, but too short.
Then the whole China sequence was boring. Being chased around by that guy who kept becoming more and more powerful. We've killed him. Oh no we haven't. We got him. No, he's back again. I was really getting fed up by this point. The never-ending-enemy thing has happened so many times in these games, that it's become an annoyance.
It's a beautiful looking game, the lighting effects are fantastic, and it's nice to finally have physical attacks that we can use at any time, instead of having to wait until the enemy is stunned before we can throw a punch or kick. Love how the characters use the enemy's weapons against them - something I always thought should have been in RE5.
It also felt good to be back in urban environments, since RE4 and 5 were both set in primitive locales in the arse end of nowhere.
The story of RE6 seems a bit of a mess, and I don't think it's as well presented as Revelations was.
Obviously I've still got quite a lot to do in RE6, but I just think that my enthusiasm for the series as a whole is just not what it used to be. It has been a while since I last played any RE games, and RE6 hasn't quite sparked me up the way I was hoping it would. Anybody else care to let me know if the rest of the game is worth looking forward to?
