So they delisted them because they realized demo and discount were too good for switch owners?
The core mechanics are the same across all four campaigns in RE6 (although Jake has a rather unique fighting style with his optional hand-to-hand combat). The gameplay is quite exhilarating, but don't play it like a cover shooter. Run, dodge, dive, slide, roll. Try quick shots where you squeeze both triggers to auto-target enemies and stun them at the cost of some stamina, and perfect parries where you obliterate them with a well-timed counter-attack. Lean heavily into melee moves, including melee moves that trigger only when you're running at full sprint, i.e. Sherry's flying jump-kick to the head for instant cranial combustion.
Yeah, I know it’s been said over and over, but Capcom’s Switch support is simply baffling. I wonder if someone at Nintendo killed someone at Capcom’s puppy because that’s the only explanation I can think of. Their 3DS support is a distant memory.
How is the coop compared to RE Rev 2. Im currently playing that through with my partner and we are enjoying it but its a bit restrictive/slow especially with only one person being able to shoot
I maintain that RE5 and Gears are still the two best coop shooters of last gen. Just a blast to play
Ha, you'll adore RE5 and RE6, both players are crazy gun-wielding kung-fu ninjas
Awesome. Sounds perfect. We went straight from Wolfenstein Youngblood to RE Rev 2 so as much as i enjoy it, it really doesnt quite scratch the itch. Im loving the horror though.
Start with RE5. It's basically co-op RE4.
Honestly, it's the first time I play RE6 and I'm a bit shocked at how good it looks on the Switch screen. Seems to be native too. I'm almost tempted to buy it despite people saying it sucks.
Interesting. RE6 ran at a pretty solid 60 on X1X & PS4 Pro if I recall correctly. I wonder if that means RE5 on Switch will run at a notably lower frame rate than the other current gen versions? I say this as RE5 had some frame rate issues on Xbox One & PS4. Even on the X1X and PS4 Pro RE5 didn’t run at a locked 60.
RE6 is a great game. Just take your time and experiment with the different mechanics. The campaigns throw everything and the kitchen sink at you (in terms of setpiece ideas, etc), and they can be uneven at times, but they're pretty much always interesting. And then Mercs alone will justify your purchase.
From which store did you download it?Just got done with the RE5 Demo, key things
- Your save carries over to the final game (It's only the first level on the first difficulty)
- It's carrying the graphical upgrades from PS4/X1 so it's running unlocked but stays at a decent level of FPS (I'm not the best at this, but it seemed a consistent 30+)
Very impressed with this port, since I didn't expect 60FPS unless they kept it very similar to the 360/PS3 release in-terms of graphics.
