Resident Evil 6 Trailer Review


When I clicked the 'play' button I was not sure what to expect. A long list of possible protagonist's came to my mind. Chris, Jill, or maybe they would acknowledge the movies and Alice would take the lead. Imagine my horror when that familiar bowl cut came into view.

In RES6 the town of Tall Oaks has gone bat shit crazy and all that stands between them and total annihilation is, you guessed it, Leon S. Kennedy. The first 30 seconds of the trailer are spent watching Leon twirl like a ballerina and talk to some blonde woman who will without a doubt have to be escorted from place to place a shoved into dumpsters for "safe keeping". I was so disgusted that I almost closed the tab completely but then something bad ass happened.

Chris Redfield is also in the game and it would seem he is used in a main part of the story. The trailer shows Chris running through streets infested with members of the un dead and shows off a pretty good over the shoulder camera angle of him cutting through zombies with a semi automatic weapon. But it gets even better, towards the end of the trailer we are introduced to a brand new character in the RES series. No name is given but it seems that this new bald zombie killer may have an antidote to the virus hidden in his DNA and he too has a female sidekick who will no doubt be on dumpster duty too.

Multiple storylines? I like. Too bad we have to wait until November.
