Resident Evil 6
Top Critic Average
The same linear, patronisingly simplistic time waster it always was, but if you really must have a remaster of Resident Evil 6 this isn’t a bad job.
As in previous versions, Resident Evil 6 is a game that you can love or hate, depending on what you expect. If you're looking for classical survival, you won't find it here... but if you are looking for mindless action movie full of content, you will like it. The Switch port is at least very good: it looks and moves like a charm.

It’s not enough to say that Resident Evil 6 is poor as a Resident Evil game. That alone implies there could be a quality experience if fans can get past their preconceptions and feelings of betrayal. No, Resident Evil 6 is poor by the standards of any game, not just the high ones set by its own legacy.
_______________________ “Awful level design, repetitive structure, and mediocre gameplay plague all four of the game’s campaigns.
You can't polish a turd, and Resident Evil 6 is proof. This remaster may look the part at points, but its limp collection of lacklustre campaigns will leave you feeling dead inside. A low price point means that co-op enthusiasts may get some mileage out of the solid Mercenaries mode, but make no mistake, this is still a quivering corpse of a game. Avoid like a C-Virus plague.
Boasting a mostly decent remastering effort and a much welcomed wealth of content set against a frustratingly incoherent set of campaign scenarios and frustrating clunkiness, Resident Evil 6 on PS4 is the definitive edition of the series’ most divisive entry and is perhaps more easily recommended to the uninitiated rather than those who were turned off by the game’s original PS3 outing.
While still not my favorite in the series, it’s still a fun action game, especially with a buddy going through it with you. Also, for 20 bucks, you’re getting a giant package. A full 25-30 hour campaign, tons of multiplayer modes, and a really solid looking action horror game. The Resident Evil fans should really pick this up even if it isn’t the best game in the series.
If you’re after a straight-up action shooter, you could do a lot worse than Resident Evil 6, but if you’re looking for an experience similar to the earlier games in the series, then you definitely won’t find that here.
Four years after the original release, Resident Evil 6 is pretty much the same game. The HD version shows the usual technical improvements of many other remaster (1080p and 60 frame per second), but nothing more. Disappointing for the fanbase, Resident Evil 6 is a huge title but is somehow inconsistent, unable to pursue neither the fast paced action of the fourth chapter, nor the survival horror spirit of the origins.

Resident Evil 6 continues down the divergent path of shaping the series into more of a third-person shooter game than survival horror, but there’s so much content here that’s actually fun to play through it’s difficult to criticize it too much. Resident Evil 6 HD won’t convert any haters, but if you loved the 2012 release and can’t wait to jump back into it with a friend, this is still the same game you enjoyed from four years ago.
