Kennedy and his new partner Helena Harper; but when the venue becomes host to another bioterrorist attack, Leon is forced to face the infected and mutated President, making the hardest decision in his life. Meanwhile in the Eastern European state of Edonia, mercenary Jake Muller, the son of late bio-terrorist Albert Wesker, flees from the authorities during a bioterrorist attack.

Resident Evil series has always been about survival against all odds. With limited pocket space and ammo, we slipped through the first games in the series, step by step, knowing that a new and unknown danger to fool around the next corner. Since Resident Evil 4, that many consider to be the best in the series, however, changed the pattern, and the series has now evolved into an almost pure action-fest, with the zombies as extras.
With Resident Evil 6 will Capcom recall the horror of the series 'start, and combine them with the later games' action sequences. Currently we have only been watching the latter, but with Comic-Con trailer that was recently released, we feel some of the scarier parts of the game as well. And we meet our first zombie snake. Jackpot!
The game will be launched 2 October.

Compelling story. The only flaws here and there were some gameplay mechanics. Nevertheless, it's still is an awesome game to play with. Some people, especially old-school RE fans might be disappointed with the shift and changes in gameplay.
