Resident Evil 6 brings together three separate campaigns in what is likely Capcom's most expensive project in the series yet. It is believed that more than 600 developers have been working on the project, of which Japanese developers make up less than a third of that total number.
CVG's first impressions of the game, now after more than ten hours of cumulative play, suggests that the game has become fully westernised. Foreboding locations and tense pacing has been replaced by a comprehensive action model - one that is cursed by comparisons to Gears of War, fairly or not.
Given its intention to thrill, it is not clear whether Resident Evil 6 has the capacity to horrify its dedicated fan base.
