* PolishedPort: The PC version can run at framerates up to 120, plays very well on [=KB&M=], is pretty well-optimized, and has exclusive content in the form of ''VideoGame/LeftForDead'' [=DLC=] for the Mercenaries Mode.

** A lot of people skew towards liking certain missions or campaigns over others. Leon's campaign has a strong following since it reintroduces (and reinvigorates) the zombies the franchise was known for and has some pretty cool set-pieces, with Chapter 3 of Jake's campaign being the turning point for gamer and critic alike.

Its generally agreed upon that Leon boasts the most popular campaign out of the four available.

** A lot of people complained about the greater focus on combat in this one, especially in the Chris Campaign. The game takes place more than a decade and a half since the first Umbrella incident and the change in gameplay style can be seen as an indication of (mostly) everyone's veteran status with dealing with freaky bio-weapons. It's no longer terrifying to them, it's their job to be able to kill these things.

It's no longer terrifying to them, it's their job to be able to kill these things. Similarly, Leon's campaign is more reminiscent of the earlier survival horror titles because in comparison to Chris, who at this point has been a member of a dedicated anti-B.O.W. organization, he's relatively lacking in experience; while he is capable of fighting these monsters, Leon has spent more time as an agent of the US government and bodyguarding the president more than battling B.O.W.s, and the same can be said for Helena. Also note that he lacks the heavier firepower (at least initially) of the B.S.A.A. Jake's campaign is a compromise, with hints of the Nemesis/Mr. X confrontations from previous games. Both Jake and Sherry are physically more capable than ordinary humans thanks to their genes, and thus can go toe to toe with B.O.W.s easily, but as with Leon and Helena, they are ill-equipped compared to Chris and Piers.

** The "Chris vs Leon" fight can really get fans into insane arguments, not even [[WordOfGod Capcom's statement]] that it was a draw can sate them. Don't bring it up, ever. Just... don't.

* ReplacementScrappy: Let's face it, for all Ustanak's attempts to be a next gen Nemesis, it falls flat on so many levels. For instance, the Nemesis was a legit hunter who would show up at both set, and random, times. First several times through you never knew when or where the beast was going to show up, and the only real safe place was a save room, a save room that he would be waiting right outside when you were done. Ustanak on the other hand only shows up in set cutscenes and has bright red exploding barrels announce his arrival in the boss room for every fight. Once you see them, you know who is about to show up, dissipating any tension the guy might bring. He's less an unrelenting hunter out for your blood, and more a wanna be repeat boss.

** It's also worth noting that Piers was going to be a woman [[WhatCouldHaveBeen early in development]], but his gender was changed to avoid UnfortunateImplications about certain aspects of their relationship. We're sure [[YaoiFangirl some people]] are very happy.

* CriticProof: The game has received several negative reviews from critics and fans alike, and even a MemeticMutation with fans usually saying "Still better than RE6." And despite not meeting Capcom's expectations, the game sold over '''''6.3 million''''' copies worldwide. For the record, ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'', Capcom's best selling game, sold 6.9 million copies, so this is not a small number.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: While not humorous, the mannequin room from Jake and Sherry's campaign certainly qualifies. The main characters never talk about the room when they enter, are in, or leave it, it's never brought up later, and while there's a Green herb on one of the shelves there's nothing else of interest in the room besides the mannequins and [[spoiler: the "art" on the wall at the other end of the room]].
