Resident Evil 6's messy mix of annoying quick-time events and constant set pieces makes it a poor caricature of modern-day action games. Click on Read More to check out The Good, The Bad and the critic scores.


  • Intriguing narrative structure  
  • Great voice acting and action-packed cutscenes draw you into the story.


  • Loads of bad, overlong quick-time events  
  • Excruciating overemphasis on mediocre set piece events  
  • Ruins the pace by constantly ripping control from you  
  • Poorly executed scripted events lead to unavoidable deaths.

4.5
How far can cinematics get you when the gameplay sandwiched between them is so poorly paced, so utterly misconceived, so reliant on stick wriggles and button tapping? There's a place for contextual prompts and cinematic storytelling in video games, but Resident Evil 6 is a mishmash of elements put together without any sense of care or direction.

79
Evolution and ambition are only natural for a franchise as old as Resident Evil, as is the need to respect a long-lasting legacy and the fans that have come to appreciate it. But in trying to serve all masters, Resident Evil 6 loses focus and fails to accurately assess which of its elements are truly worthy of being included.
