Backhanded Box Quotes: 'A Flushed Turd Down A Toilet Drain'

Welcome back to "Backhanded Box Quotes", a collection of measured, thoughtful, sometimes plagiarized criticism from the user reviews of Metacritic and elsewhere.

This week, well, what can we say. Resident Evil 6 released to a critical bloodbath. Metacritic counts 2688 negative consumer reviews — not all of them written — for this title, and it's not just because people are upset about DLC or a bad ending. I'll just step aside and let them take over, because holy shit, this is bad.

Resident Evil 6

Released: September 25

Critic: Karibito (Metacritic) • "The reason It gets a 0 from me, is because it has the misleading title of a numbered RE sequel but the product i ended up playing was something like Gears of War meets CoD." Score: 0.

Critic:TheWarHorse (Metacritic) • "RIP Resident Evil series. You were once a mighty God of the video game industry and now you've been reduced to a flushed turd down a toilet drain." Score: 1.

Critic: Darkaroff (Metacritic) •"En fin señores estamos ante una ESTAFA por parte de CAPCOM!!!! Esto no es Resident Evil, si eres fan de la Saga ni se te ocurra comprarte este BODRIO!!!!" Score: 0.

Critic: hersheygames (Metacritic) •"Resident Evil 6 is so devoid of horror elements and is such a typical dudebro action game for the casual masses that it vomits laziness, insulting effort and sheer boredom." Score: 0.

Critic: Busterofwar (Metacritic) •"A poor attempt at turning Resident Evil into Uncharted with awful action scenes and a billion quick-time events." Score: 0.

Critic: Nichtswisser (Metacritic) •"It's like trying to have sex with your girlfriend while the phone rings every minute or so." Score: 4. Hey. It's still sex.

Critic: CriticoDubioso (Metacritic) •"NO COMPRÉIS SEMEJANTE INSULTO A LA SAGA." Score: 0.

Critic: Kalashr (Metacritic) •"This game is like a cancer in late-stage. Don't want to see it ever again. My eyes are bleeding after 10 minutes of gameplay." Score: 0.

      Agreed. Although I see Nichtswisser's point as well.

    I wish Metacritic would get rid of the 1 to 10 scale for user reviews. Everyone just hits 0 or 10 (almost everyone). Let's just do "like" or "dislike".

      Sounds good to me, leave number/graded reviews to pro's, and like/dislike (not the bastardisation of the english language that is Facebooks' "unlike") to the unwashed masses.

        It is a word created through necessity. A toggle. You like. To dismiss the like. You UNlike. The English language is both fluid and alive.

          This is true. Facebook doesn't have a "dislike". Their unlike is to remove a like.

      Agreed. Scores for official reviews, comments for users.

    OK so are the quotes even being read now or are they just taking a bunch of the most popular ones and reposting?

    There's two in Spanish and not even a Translation, surely the writer of the article could have taken the twenty seconds I took to cut and paste it into google translate.

    “En fin señores estamos ante una ESTAFA por parte de CAPCOM!!!! Esto no es Resident Evil, si eres fan de la Saga ni se te ocurra comprarte este BODRIO!!!!”

    or in English "Well gentlemen this is a SCAM by CAPCOM!! This is not Resident Evil, if you are a fan of the series do not ever buy this mess"


    “NO COMPRÉIS SEMEJANTE INSULTO A LA SAGA.” is "Do not buy such an insult to the saga"
