Resident Evil 6. Capcom (2012) Xbox 360

I LOVE the Resident Evil series probably even more than the Final Fantasy series and when Resident Evil 5 came out I was so hyped it was ridiculous.

Admittedly I am in the salty category, as when we reviewed it I wasn’t exactly complimentary. Basically it seemed OK at the time, but looking back it was very glitzy, but lacked any substance, and has way too much boulder punching to be taken seriously. It didn’t just jump the shark, it jumped the shark in a volcano.

This is the ORIGINAL release of a Game that not only spawned (to date) over 20 sequels, but currently has 3 remakes.

So, for a game to get 4 remakes, it must either be one of the best games ever, or a deeply flawed gem in need of a polish.

So what is it? Continue reading

I am torn. I can’t decide if I like this game or not. I don’t hate it, it isn’t Umbrella Chronicles bad, it is just weird.

Dead Rising 2: Off The Record, Capcom (2011) Xbox 360

dead_rising_2 Off The Record

Dead Rising 2: Off The Record is an enigma wrapped in a cliche. It is the retelling of a story, and getting itself a little confused along the way and attempting to fill in the blanks (badly).

Does that make it a bad game?
