For a game's story that was supposed to be more Ada-centric (with her evil doppelganger and all), she herself came off surprisingly underwhelming for some reason. Usually my favorite female of the series, but there was something about her in 6 that was just... meh.
Renegade, maybe so I can understand more, humor me as to what was so awful about Piers. For the kind of soldier he was, he did perfectly fine in getting Chris back in shape and trying to keep him in line.
lol Well with 6 not having the same director as 5, can't blame him for having some hope for it beforehand/giving it the benefit of a doubt. Sadly though, RE5 being the only hiccup turned out too good to be true. 5 was a happy accident more than anything which they tried to replicate its success with 6, and is (unfortunately) still the most profitable game in the series sales-wise.
He seems so expendable. Like, Chris could have done that himself or taken pills, maybe. Piers character could have been replaced by pills. Nah, that's a minor issue. The biggest problem is how generic he is. He's the typical rookie soldier who feels more like a f*cking red shirt than anything else. He has no memorable dialogue and isn't that great.
What he did for Chris was great but he's so replaceable, as a character. Like I said, Jake could be an obnoxious ass but he was slick. He also carried importance. With Piers, I didn't get that vibe.
Him and Helena are my two least favorite, honestly. Although, I didn't mind Helena in the later portion of the Leon/Helena campaign. Her crazed sister was a cool entry into the plot as well, I thought.
I might like him a bit better if I give the game another go (I did beat it twice but not all that recently) but I don't think my position will alter drastically.
Dead Aim, from what I've been told, was good. I never got a copy though, because while I like gun games and I like RE, I've not seen them mix well. Gun Survivor, with its pulled lightgun support and shoddy graphics and story, was horribad. Gun Survivor 2 was just a what-if CV tie-in.
With how often they played up the Son of Wesker aspect, yes, somewhat. They even made him a hand to hand super powered monster that rocked Ustanak in a fist fight. He was a significantly weaker and dumber Wesker.
Didn't really like her new look much either as someone else said. Was a step back compared to her design/appearance in RE4 and the like.
@ Renegade: Ah. See where you're coming from a little more now, but guess I'll just have to agree to disagree. Piers to me definitely had some memorable lines, and the expendable/replaceable bit can easily be said for some others in the series too, to be fair. lol And honestly Jake was much more of a generic character/stereotype to me than Piers was. Being Wesker's son doesn't give him a free pass far as that.
Am not much a Jake fan either, but can at least see why others like him. He's at least likable as opposed to Simmons or someone.
And with Jake's current age and experience, of course he wasn't gonna live up to Wesker just yet. I didn't mind him being (in essence) a toned down Wesker though, with how much a gary stu he already seemed as it is.
He was weaker and less intelligent so perhaps that not who he was supposed to be. I don't think there was any implication that he was supposed to explicitly be Wesker 2.0 so I'm not on that boat with you.
Its not that it wasn't fun, it just didn't belong in an RE game. I play RE to be scared shitless, not have an epic melee battle with Nemesis 2.0. That didn't belong there at all.
Where did Jake even get powers? I'm pretty sure his dad didn't have it till after the injection, so Wesker definitely reproduced while he was normal. Everything about Jake just messed with me. I hope he is significantly changed if they bring him back in the future.
The purpose of that was to make a super intelligent being, which they succeeded in. It didn't give Wesker any kind of hand to hand capabilities or super strength, so where did Jake get it? And why was he your typical run-of-the-mill retard henchmen/merc? It doesn't fit.
