The lights are on
As of June 30, 2012, the Resident Evil franchise has sold more than 50 million copies, and with 4.5 million copies of Resident Evil 6 being shipped across the globe, there's a chance it could be the most successful Resident Evil title to date. This initial shipment is the biggest in Capcom's history.
But the question is: Will it sell? Game Informer's Tim Turi is a fan of its co-op, but reviews and gamer opinions are divided. Did you pick it up? And if so, are you enjoying it, or regretting your purchase?

Awesome. Just as good as I thoughtit would be. I'm still on the first campaign (Leon's) but its fun as hell. And its already made me jump twice. That's all I couldve asked for. I know chris and Jakes campaigns are more action oriented, which is fine, cause thats how RE 5 was. No game will ever pass the perfection of RE 4 but this is as good as it gets.
I want to say part of this is due to advertising. I've seen so many promos for this game, including one in a movie theater. Negative reviews may be enough to convince most to stay away, but the consistent television advertising will draw plenty in.
Great. RE6 is awesome. The brightness is my biggest complaint. Zombies with guns is also highly annoying but its whatever. They're going down. :D
Love it. People had their expectations set to high and in my opinion are looking at the game in all the wrong ways.
Yes, there are some glaring issues to be had and the controls/camera can be a pain (weren't they always) but at the end of the day Re6 is a blockbuster and succeeds in every way a Michael Bay film fails, so stop comparing the two...please. This isn't a third person shooter like every other tps this is a resident evil third person shooter ad separates it from the junk on the market.
I think RE6 looks pretty good, and as soon as I'm able to put some money together and find some free time I'll be joining my friends in whatever madness comes our way online.
I love the Resident Evil series, except for Raccoon City. I really didn't enjoy playing it. All the people I talk to about it say it not all that bad. I thinking about purchasing it.
I got mine. And I am loving the hell out of it so far.
I am about an hour and a half in to Leon's campaign, and I am really liking it so far. I am excited to play this game with a friend, which is something that I didn't really do in RE5. It may not be the antiquated survival horror system pre-RE4, which is my personal favorite, but I would say that this is a solid horror/action game that many different types of gamers can get into. More importantly, I am really glad that the game doesn't suck.
