From the Manufacturer

Resident Evil 6

Blending action and survival horror, Resident Evil® 6 promises to be the dramatic horror experience of 2012. Resident Evil favorites Leon S. Kennedy and Chris Redfield are joined by new characters, including Jake Muller, to face a new horror, the highly virulent C-virus, as the narrative moves between North America, the war-torn Eastern European state of Edonia and the Chinese city of Lanshiang. Joining this cast will be presidential aide Derek Simmons, who vows to track down Leon for his involvement in the President's death, and femme fatale Ada Wong. But what part will Ada play as the story unravels and does she have ties to the mysterious Neo-Umbrella?

With three distinct, yet interwoven story threads, each with their own pair of protagonists for either solo or co-op play, both offline and online, not only will Resident Evil 6 deliver both different perspectives and gameplay styles but, with the introduction of the innovative Crossover mechanic players will be able to team up and share the horror. At key moments during the game, up to four players can join together online to tackle a specific situation, with some stages seeing the usual partnerships swapped to further increase the depth of gameplay.

Key Game Features

Horror on a global scale – No longer confined to a specific location, the outbreak of the C-virus is worldwide with the action taking place in North America, Eastern Europe and China.

Multiple characters and intertwined storylines – Experience the horror playing as Leon S. Kennedy, BSAA member Chris Redfield, and son of Albert Wesker, Jake Muller; with their respective partners US government agent Helena Harper, BSAA member Piers Nivans and Sherry Birkin.

Solo or Co-op – Resident Evil 6 delivers both single and two player co-op gameplay either offline or online.

New threats – Zombies make a return to the Resident Evil series, but can now run, jump at players and even use weapons, making them far more challenging than in previous games. The C-virus has also given rise to new BOWs like the J'avo and Chrysalides, which can mutate and spawn a whole host of horrific creatures.

Not only does each story cross paths, but so does the action – At significant points when the narrative draws pairs of characters together, the all new Crossover mechanic allows up to four players to experience the horror together online.

If playing Leon first, it started off being one of the best zombie first person shooters I’ve ever played. The lighting and creepiness of zombies coming out of the wood work really gave a Resident Evil feel to the game. End boss was a little long. Somewhere along the line you start to scream “oh come on just DIE ALREADY”. Playing the other characters the game seemed to change from a trying to run from zombie hordes, too a shoot’em up, shoot’em up, reloaded and shoot’em up a little more(no zombies in most off the game, your fighting mutated men). If you like that, and that’s for you then have at it. If you’re looking for the kind of game play and genre that made Resident Evil’s cult following I wouldn’t look for it here. Bottom line, it just feels like they tried to make the game for a wide spectrum of game players.
One more thing, when it says it comes with Resident Evil one to five; it’s just a code to download it from the ps network. So if you’re buying it too collect the games (like I did) you can’t.

For the avid gamer that wants to relive the franchise....this is a must purchase....well done Capcom. Hoping more PS3 franchised games will follow s. Afterall, Sony is one in only that let's you play cross generation platforms.

I pre-order this and now I'm the owner of the whole resident evil series, lots of hours of great story and gameplay on the same console.

I played this game for 3 hours and every hour I had to try and encourage myself to give it another 30 mins and maby it will get better, It did not. The game is just a series of flashing lights and explosions no room for exploration and guns are almost useless the only real effective way to dispatch enemies is with kung fu. Wepon diversity is also gone instead each character is enlisted a set of wepons and you have to unlock skills with experiance points you pick up off dead enemies.

The only and I mean only good thing about this game is that it came with the entire canon run of previous RE titles that I can port to my PSP and play while I am away from home and I am having more fun playing RE2 and RE3 on my PSP then I ever had with this abomination of a game save your money.

RE5 Gold included Oct. 3 2012
By Piyodamari - Published on
Platform for Display: PlayStation 3Edition: Standard Verified Purchase
Just to clarify again since Amazon product feature isn't update yet... "RE5 Gold" is included in this edition.

You get the PSN codes to download to download all the previous RE games... Code Veronica X NOT included (which you can still get from PSN for $20).

There are no instruction booklet at all, so that's a bit disappointing.

Notice that after the prelude opening, you can freely choose which characters you want to start with (Christ, Leon, Jake). But if you focus on one of them from start to finish, some of the story may not make sense to you later on... after doing a bit of research, here is the suggested path:

After Prelude:

Chris #1
Chris #2
Jake #1
Jake #2
Leon #1
Leon #2
Leon #3
Jake #3
Chris #3
Jake #4
Leon #4
Chris #4
Jake #5
Chris #5
Leon #5

I liked that they allow player to choose to play with which ever character they want, but I think they should at least give players a 'suggested' path to understand the story better.

Resident Evil 6 Anthology Oct. 2 2012
By Antonio - Published on
Platform for Display: PlayStation 3Edition: Standard
I love Resident Evil. I've played every single one since the very first one came out for the Playstation. Survival horror is a genre that has changed quite a bit since that original entry and I'm happy to say that at least part of this game is an homage to that bygone era.

Gameplay: The gameplay is quite solid. The cover system works well and being able to move around while shooting is a welcome change. While it may not satisfy the purists, it's a step up from Resident Evil 4.5/5. The controls are quite responsive and I had almost no trouble at all (I caught some trouble sometimes :).)

Story: There are three separate campaigns, each with a very different feel. My favorite by and far was the Leon portion, which gives that sense of impending dread that the originals in the series gave. Chris and Wesker's son both also had interesting campaigns, and it was really cool when the campaigns intersected in the story. This is also a pretty long game, so you really get some serious playtime out of it.

The Health system has greatly changed. Instead of using your entire herbs at once, you can use them as pills adding them to your case just by pressing R2. They do let you hold more weapons than Resident Evil 5, an improvement.

Graphics: Everything in the game looks great. The action looks good, the new bad guys are pleasingly disgusting and the boss fights look top notch and Interesting how The MT Framework processes the Graphics too.

Overall - a very engaging entry in the series. Well worth picking up if you're a fan. I haven't tried Mercenaries yet but hopefully it'll be fun.

Two Wishes:

First: The Anthology version that the Playstation recieved. Poor Xbox 360, Every Resident Evil game should've been on that console too!
Second: It would have been nice if Sheva Alomar made a small Appearance in the game (Or later in DLC).

Playstation 3: One Bluray Game Disc, 1,2,3,4 and 5 Games DLC.
Xbox 360: R6 Two Seperate DVD Game Discs, Resident Evil CODE Veronica X HD, Resident Evil 4 HD , Resident Evil 5 Gold, and Resident Evil Degeneration.

RE 6 Anthology Dec 5 2013
By Doc - Published on
Platform for Display: PlayStation 3Edition: Standard Verified Purchase
Well, I must say I was really disappointed with this Anthology. You don't get physical copies of the actual games, you get codes to download the games from the store (which takes up hard drive space, I have a 500gb ps3 so no it doesn't really effect me but others it may) and if you already have downloaded the games, this Anthology is really irrelevant. Avoid if you have already purchased the games in the store.

Strays from the Resident Evil feel but... Oct. 3 2012
By Michael - Published on
Platform for Display: PlayStation 3Edition: Standard
Now I am going to say this right off the bat. I have not completed the game yet. However, I have had a good amount of time with the three initial campaigns. From the amount of time I have played, this is my honest review. I might get some flak from this.

Story: The story is put together in an interesting, yet confusing way. There are three initial campaigns to play through: Jake, Leon, and Chris. The fourth campaign is Ada and it is unlocked after you have completed the first three. The first part of the story goes in this order: Jake, Leon, and Chris. After a certain point, it gets a little confusing. The reason being is that if you progress too far through one campaign, some thing may pop up where you had to have played one of the other campaigns first to understand. Hope that did not sound too confusing. The newly emerged C-Virus has emerged and the protagonists travel across the globe to contain it and find out who let it loose.

Gameplay: This is where I will get the flak. I will not lie. This is not the Survival-Horror game hardcore fans have known and played in the early years. This is more action packed and more modern. More like a game of the third person shooter genre, if you will (Future Soldier, Uncharted without the adventure aspects, etc). However, even though this game strays from it's name, the game is still very fun and enjoyable. With shooting, you can now move more freely while aim. Whereas in Resident Evil 4 and 5, you could not move while aiming. You can also customize the type of aiming laser you like and the color of the laser. They also added action abilities. These include quick shot, counters, dives and rolls, and the ability to shoot while laying on the ground. They added a melee button too. They also added skill points. These are used to purchase skills and level them up. Unlike past Resident Evil games, you cannot upgrade your weapons through a store/menu. They changed the inventory system too. They have brought back the Mercenaries game mode but have added the Agent Hunt mode, which I have not played yet. If you neglect the fact that it is named as a Resident Evil game, you could possibly enjoy it.

Specific to this edition: Resident Evil 6 Anthology comes with Resident Evil 1-6, hence it being called Anthology. This edition costs 90 dollars, about 30 dollars more than the standard edition which is 60 dollars. I believe this is a very good deal. Even though a physical disc(s) would be ideal, I am perfectly fine with these digital downloads. These are the premium editions of the games too (Of the games that had one). As of now from where I looked, Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition is 20 dollars. From the Playstation Store, Resident Evil 4 HD is 20 dollars, Resident Evil Director's Cut is 10 dollars, Resident Evil 2 and 3 are 7 dollars each. If you add this up along with Resident Evil 6, the total cost is 124 dollars. You are saving 34 dollars when you buy this. Even though this does not come with Code Veronica, you are already getting a lot for you money. Six games for 90 dollars.

Final Thoughts (as of now): Even though Resident Evil 6 strays from the rest of the Resident Evil franchise, it still maintains some of the Resident Evil features and it is a great and fun game nevertheless. The four campaigns add longevity to the game (all playable in co-op except for Ada, I believe) and each adds its own different feel. The game feels much smoother and the controls are not very confusing. Longtime, hardcore Resident Evil fans may not like the change but I gladly accept it. Most of these bad reviews are coming from longtime resident evil fans. I perceive these reviews as biased but I can see where they are coming from. If you like an action packed shooter that has some of the Resident Evil feel to it, get it.

downloads required Nov. 1 2012
By DJ - Published on
Platform for Display: PlayStation 3Edition: Standard Verified Purchase
It would be nice if the product description stated that not all the games listed are included as disks (which is the only reason I purchased this). All versions other than RE 6 must be downloaded. This is not an all-inclusive anthology, but rather RE 6 with download codes...way false advertising!!
