I have always loved the Resident Evil series. Since the first game came out in the 90's and I hid it from my parents so they didn't know their underage son was playing an ultra violent game I have enjoyed every moment of zombie slaying mayhem. RE4 was a major departure from the status quo of the fixed camera survivor horror genre. The series took on an over the shoulder perspective more akin to Gears of War than Resident Evil or Dino Crisis (I loved that game too). There were mixed feelings in the fanbase about the changes. You either hated it or loved it. I am in the latter category. Some people claimed it made the game too easy, but you can fix that by changing the difficulty. RE6 follows the same play style as RE4 with the fast pace zombie blasting. You have 4 campaigns to play through, with the 4th unlocking after completing the first three. Leon's is reminiscent of the original 3 entries in the series. I was taken back to my teenage years as I wandered the corridors of the zombie infested campus and the streets of China. Mercenaries is back. There are more maps to play through and more outfits to unlock. There is even the agent hunter mode where you can play as c-virus infected monsters and kill BSA agents, reminiscent of the Left 4 Dead franchise. I love the game, but the story can be a bit convoluted. I give it a 4 because of the complexity of the story. This game will keep you busy for a long time.
