RE6 is way better than the RE3 remake. But a lot of fans will never appreciate RE6 for some reason. The same to a degree, occurred with Code: Veronica.
Out of the first four RE games, I think CV is bashed by some, but admired by most. Yet I feel it's undervalued nonetheless.
I know CV was incredibly strange and that divided some people, but the game was a cluster fuck of creepiness.
I noticed that a lot of fans who think chris is overused also include his appearance in re6 along with re7 and revillage.
While ı understand for re7 and revillage not to mention, his utilization in those games is simply not as interesting as in re6, ı dont really understand the criticisms for re6 at all. Not to mention he wasnt the only returning character in that game there were multiple, more than any previous entry that featured returning characters.
They also think his storylines in those 3 games are simply the same even though they arent.
This is where re3 2020 comes into play. Probably cause jill wasnt utilized for a long while before 2020 where her last appearance was rerev in 2012, ( Her last appearance in timeline is still re5. ) they simply think jill was utilized well in that game just cause she returns after a long time. While for re6, chris doesnt seem to be liked cause he returns again after re5?
Personally ı dont feel like they've done jill justice since re3 really. Remake ruins the relationship between her and barry and while umbrella chronicles is a bit better, its re3 retelling is still awkward. And she was done a major disservice in re5. Though ı still like patricia ja lee as va a lot, it bothers me that she doesnt voice jill again. She should have returned in rerev to voice her.
I still dont mind her appearance in re3 2020 that much, it doesnt bother me as much as re5 and rerev but then again ı simply dont see jill that great except re3 unlike many people. My like for her kinda decreased after ı thought more about her appearances and characterization.
As for recv, yeah ı noticed a lot of criticisms for it too. I kinda relate to those criticisms. In terms of design, ı find the game step back from re3 and even re2 somewhat. Though ı dont agree with exaggerations for them and ı still prefer it over re1 and remake. I think it also has the best story from pre-re4 entries.
I dont think it's underrated. It received enough praises and its important plot points were followed with darkside chronicles and re6 which improve from the game. I think those 2 games are definitely underrated.
I would say from pre-re4 entries; re0 and outbreak games are the most underrated. The former also seem to get plenty of criticisms and the latter are forgotten most of the time.
