Yeah, great video game, not a great RE game. Would have been received much better if it was an all new Capcom game. Sort of like DMC was supposed to be Resident Evil 4 but instead Capcom decided to make a whole new series out of it and it has been very successful with 5 installments.
Good news is RE6 campaigns, especially Chris's, ended in a manner that points to an RE7 and from what I have been reading, Capcom wants to do another "reboot" and go back to more horror elements and make the game scarier. They really heard the backlash from fans and video game outlets and have to go back to the drawing board.
