The joy that gamers get when they grind through the Resident Evil series comes to a screeching halt when they start to play Resident Evil 6. To find out the reasons why Resident Evil 6 failed, just try spending an evening with it.
Capcom's Resident Evil series has a reputation for dishing out some the best survival horror games in the genre. That is, except for Resident Evil 6. It aimed to please a wide range of players, particularly those of first-person shooters, but ended up pleasing no one.
While some may vouch for the zombie shoot-em-up, their voices are smothered by the litany of complaints about how bad the gameplay mechanics are and how terrible the style is compared to its predecessors. These are the biggest reasons why gamers hate RE6.
