So this looks nothing like a Resident Evil
By which I mean it looks astonishing!
Sure, there are zombies, bio-engineered monsters, survival gameplay and a clandestine corporation orchestrating global conspiracy and international mayhem.
But in a first for the series there’s some genuinely innovative and dynamic combat, protracted explosive set pieces and (SHOCK HORROR) genuinely impressive voice acting.
I can hear the protesting survival horror purists object already, their placards reading
“Wait! Don’t. Open. That. Door.”
Well, forget ‘em, this looks soddin’ terreffic!
With three interwoven campaigns, six playable characters and a veritable cadre of gameplay styles (survival, action, platforming, melee, cover to cover) Resident Evil 6
looks set to return this series to its former glory (RE4
) on October 2nd 2012.
