Resident Evil 6, for all intents and purposes, was not the greatest game of all time. It did not mop up many game of the year titles and received mixed reviews. Giantbomb awarded it a 2/5 and Gamespot a 4.5/10, this was combined with User Reviews on Metacritic that tore the game to shreds to bring about the consensus that this was a less than stellar addition to the Resident Evil franchise. Despite all of the word of mouth, the harsh critics, and those who despised the game entirely; it went on to become one of the top selling Capcom games of all time, just under a million shy of it's predecessor Resident Evil 5. It also boasted the highest initial shipment of a Capcom game, with 4.5 million units shipped worldwide with its release.
Cinematic trailers have become more impressive with each generation of consoles, and despite my inability to mimic their unique feeling in-game, it is hard to be too bitter about it. The sole purpose of a cinematic trailer is to reel the viewer in while giving an "idea" of what the game will offer, and stands as physical evidence of the hard work and dedication going into the development of the title on all fronts. Sure, I may not be able to recreate an archer quite as cool as the one in the trailer, but that is perfectly alright if the overall quality reflects what went into making him so awesome in the first place. For now, I will simply bask in the beauty and professionalism put into these amazing teasers of what is to come...even if they turn out to be a lie.
