    The CVG review is up there in "questionable" territory -

    No scares, no surprises, lots and lots of shooting...
    Resi 6 delivers plenty of bang for your buck, and co-op makes everything better. But is it worth a more discerning dollar? Let's put it this way: we wouldn't buy it full price.
    Samey shooting starts to grind
    Zero scares
    QTE sections wrestle control from you, vehicles drive like boxes on wheels
    8/10

    O_o

    Most of the positive reviews seems to based on the amount of game there, rather than the quality. It is like 3 (average) games in one.

    Also, shut up Spuds :)

    The cvg one certainly doesn't read like an 8.

    Reviews are all over the place. Even w/ Sterling's hyperbole on the D-toid review, Cap's full-on action switchover from RE4 to RE5 was a massive warning sign for this one. Combine that with what the "AAA" industry is aiming for today in terms of sales and you have the so-called "Michael Bay game" that disconnected publishers think gamers want.

    Well a 6 from EG & Edge is encouraging. I'll pick this up before the year is out.
    Poverty knocks, so will be looking for a pre crimbo bargain.
    I only have this and XCom on my radar anyhow.

    Can't even be arsed finishing this. I desperately want to like this. I love everything Resident Evil. I even enjoy the movies a great deal for fucks sake. This though, this is pure, 100% genuine authentic horse shit.

    Pretty surprised that Games tm went with a 7/10 after the epic trolling they gave it in a recent preview where they basically said it was a candidate for worst game of the year.

    I played the demo and it wasn't for me so won't be getting it, but I'm not making it a mission to tell everyone how shit it is and telling those who enjoyed it that they are wrong.
    I've been playing video games for quite a while now and can smell a stinker from a mile away. Having played the second demo, I can say with certainty that I would never give it a 9 for design, 8.8 for story and 8.2 for gameplay. Because it's fucking madness.

    I don't know. Their review scores entirely exist in the 7-10 scale. So pratically the game got 0.9/3

    An 8.8 for story for any Resi game is madness, frankly.

    If it helps the Ada campaign is actually meant to be pretty damn good from what I've heard.

    As in "they should have just jettisoned all the others and just focussed on making the whole game around her" good. Apparently it's also even more old-school resi than Leon's too, with proper puzzles and everything.

    I see a rather large shitstorm has erupted over at CVG towers.

    Rob Crossley has intervened in the comments saying he doesn't think it's a good review, and Rich Stanton has gone on twitter saying "HATE having my stuff on CVG. Fuck that site" and also accusing sites that give the game a bad score are lowballing. Despite his own text matching up pretty exactly with all of the lower-scoring reviews elsewhere. Some very poor professionalism there. Funnily enough, he's a contributor to EG, who would count among the sites he is accusing of deliberately lowballing. I think he hasn't done his career any favours at all with all this.

    Which all suggests to me that, quite simply, the review should be taken down by CVG, re-done by someone else, and Rich Stanton shouldn't have his work published on CVG anymore (or anywhere else he just collectively insulted like EG, Edge, etc).

    At least Rob Crossley managed to maintain his professionalism in his response.

    In a post Uncharted world "story" is a code word for "set-piece count".

    I've completed all four campaigns now. I think the worst things about the game are the QTEs and the vehicle sections. They are utterly abysmal. The car chases remind me of a very poor man's Midnight Club, the helicopter and plane bits were reminiscent of a poor man's Battlefield. There's also a snowmobile bit which actually wasn't that bad.

    I read sme stuff abut the snowmobile section - think it was the Games tm preview the other month - and they said it was one of the worst parts that they played. Was it driving into the screen trying to escape an avalanche by any chance?

    Supposedly Sherry's story is 90% running into the screen.

    It was the Snowmobile bit I was doing last night.

    It was fucking shit.

    For some reason I persevered though and managed to get through it...and walked straight into a fucking stealth section.

    Think I'm definitely done now.

    Gamespot gives this a 45? They must have not bought any advertising from them.

    That said, I find this especially surprising. I see them as a pretty lenient site.

    Still find it amusing people believe game publishers bribe reviewers.

    On a Resi note these scores make me want to try it out less.

    It was a sarcastic comment. You clearly don't remember the Gerstmann debacle, though.

    I've enjoyed the first two Leon chapters, am I a bad person? I suspect it's all downhill from here though.
