Summary: Don't buy into all the unnecessary hate. RE6 is a very fun game. The gameplay feels incredible and provides some rather addicting gameplay. The game is also a blast in co-op and features split-screen which is a major plus in my book. The game features a load of content which could keep you playing well above 80 hours. Yes the game has some weak bosses here and there and few weak segments like a horrible swimming section.
Summary: Whether you liked the old games on PSone or the retro ones on Gamecube/PS2 or the newest ones on 3DS or PS3 you probably will find something worth playing in this rather expansive game. The game allows you to choose from a huge cast as you slowly unlock them all (not available from the start though). I always liked RE1-3 so I was pleased to see the game opens with Leon and that his campaign has the classic RE2 and RE3 vibe.
Summary: When I first played this, I would have given it 2 stars. Maybe it's because I was very sick the first time I played it. But, I got better, bought a bigger TV, and played it again, earning the platinum trophy in the process, and my opinion of it improved. It certainly is no longer a survival horror game, however, it still manages to retain most of the spookiness and foreboding atmosphere of the earlier games.
Summary: Just a note about current availability of this product. Since it is pretty much sold out everywhere, it is far cheaper to buy a copy of Resident Evil 6 and then download the other titles off PSN. Same product you would receive in this box, but without the secondary market pricing. Also, until April 30 PS+ subscribers get a discount on the downloads of these titles. Total cost of this set of games is under $47 for subscribers during this sale, and under $70 normally.
Summary: This game was trashed by critics, but I had more fun with this than most of the well recieved games in 2012. A game full with content and some of the best third person shooter combat I have ever played. Thanks to the breadth of options in the combat Mercernaries mode is quite the highlight.
Very happy with this game and recommend it to RE fans and newcomers!

Summary: RE6 is a good game. Based on the previous RE5, the survival horror feel to the franchise has faded away but finally I could say that this entry satisfied me with moments of ohhh's and ahhh's. The familiar zombie enemies from the original RE games have come back from the grave and made me feel like Im finally playing a Resident Evil title and not another "Action Evil 5"(RE5) and its been years since I felt that since last I played RE3 nemesis which is my favorite along...
Summary: I'm convinced there's a bug in the ps3 version that screws up the brightness. In order to play it effectively, I have to turn the brightness and contrast on the TV to the max, and turn the in-game brightness setting up to the max. If i don't, I can't see anything and randomly get killed without ever seeing where it came from or even what killed me. Every other game I play on the ps3 (including resident evil 5) looks fine at medium brightness settings.
