    It won't wow you, and it won't disappoint you: it'll basically just kind of be there.

    With a decent story and a lot of replay value this title could last you a while and is available at a sensible price, but it's not without its issues and will take up a huge chunk of your memory card. However, it is worth playing and if you enjoy and want more games like these on the Vita then you should consider supporting it.

    Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is a pretty cool game also on the PS Vita, despite a substantial technical downgrade and its some issues with loading times.

    RE Revelations 2 on PS Vita is the same game we played on consoles, but heavily downgraded visually. This might be fine, but its framerate issues make it only recommendable if you can't play on any other platform or really need to play it on the go.

    Resident Evil: Revelations 2 on PS Vita is a flawed port that only comes recommended if it’s your sole option of playing the game.

    Not the best port made for PS Vita, nor the best survival horror that we remember. Technically flawed, still manages to entertain for around 6 hours.

    A good game, ruined by a flawed conversion. If possible, it’s better to buy it for another platform.

Remember this Game was Programmed first for the Big Powerful Consoles and the Pc version require a lot of Minimum Hardware i believe its the Engine and Mass of the Polygone amount at the Same time witch are not Originally optimized and developed on the Vita we can be Happy that we r getting a Portable version :). .

Again, not graphically as good as the PS4 version but all the content is there including all four episodes, the extra episodes and the full raid mode experience including most if not all the extras available on the console version.

    Capcom deserve credit for making the effort to port this to the Vita knowing that most Vita players (especially in the West) want AAA releases like this more than anything else. I was disappointed when they decided to release it 'digital only' in the west but that feeling quickly subsided when I realised I could get a physical copy from Play Asia which I could play in full english. It now sits happily in my physical collection of vita games while also not taking up space on my memory card.

    The game itself is great, it plays really well and I'm really loving being able to play a proper Resident Evil game during my lunch breaks at work and on the train. The raid mode is surprisingly fun and addictive and it's worth mentioning a patch was also released recently which fixed a few things and made a few improvements.

    If you're a Resi or Vita fan or both, this needs to be in your collection. It's also great value content wise for the price

    Awesome game! Great gameplay and story. Cross buy with ps3 and a lot of replay value. Survivor difficulty is hard enough. We want more portsAwesome game! Great gameplay and story. Cross buy with ps3 and a lot of replay value. Survivor difficulty is hard enough. We want more ports of big productions! Indies are great but Resident evil is better. Now psvita needs RE4 Expand

Although their is graphics downgrade and frame drops for me it happen 3 times during the main campaign lasted only 3-5 seconds, plus the load times are long. However, take all that aside the game is simply fun, the story is good, the characters are great(Favorite Barry), plus the awesome addicting raid mode. I got the physical version and as i first time player this game earns a 7.5/10 and a worthy game in my PS Vita collection. Overall, check it out because the game is fun to play. Expand

    Bad. It's very very bad. I'm not comparing it to big consoles versions and downgraded to floor-level graphics is not worst part, but re:r onBad. It's very very bad. I'm not comparing it to big consoles versions and downgraded to floor-level graphics is not worst part, but re:r on 3ds was much better than this though it was much weaker console. Worst part is optimisation. When you got severally hit it becomes complitly unplayable. Controls freezing like hell and it looks more like punishment for buying it not game and fun. Because of graphics level it completely impossible to see pale red clouds of monsters and even worse with those invisible mothefu...monsters.
    I regret for wasting my money on this. It's got two patches already and they weight is half of game each and after those there no improvment of game quality at all. Programmers weren't even trying do something worth, they just downgraded and cut of all stuff that vita have no power to vield.
    It's not optimised, bad looking, hard to control and it's my worst vita experience of all time. Don't even think to buy it.
    Ps and i'm not talking about gamedesign where you must replay all levels for two times 'cause developers are lazy bastards and they don't care about game itself - just profit.
