After an initially positive critical reception, Resident Evil 6 has been taking a bit of a battering from the critics. Recent negative verdicts include a measly 4.5/10 from GameSpot UK’s Kevin VanOrd and a damning 3/10 from Destructiod’s Jim Sterling, who unapologetically labelled Capcom’s action adventure blockbuster “a Michael Bay movie”. Our guess is he probably didn’t think much of Transformers…
However, if Metacritic user scores are anything to go by, Sterling’s evaluation could be complimentary by comparison.
Based on nearly 4,500 ratings from PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners combined, RE6 is today sitting comfortably within the category of “overwhelming dislike”, with an unfathomably low score of 0.4/10 on both platforms. Reading from the negative user reviews submitted, common criticisms appear to be an over-reliance on quick-time events, constant cutscenes, tedious combat sequences, clumsy controls, and the near-total abandonment of survival horror.
In Capcom’s defence, RE6 has garnered some respectable verdicts from the likes of Game Informer, GameTrailers, Strategy Informer and IGN, crediting the game’s ambition, longevity, cinematic presentation and memorable moments. Yet, it would seem a percentage of fans are profoundly unsatisfied by the Japanese developer’s latest release.
