    Revelations really knocks it out of the park when it comes to bringing that classic Resident Evil feel but a bit more modernized.

    Resident Evil Revelations 2 is absolutely great. The Raid Mode is very addictive, and the Episodes offer a compelling story. Some minor graphics flaws and simple enemies only seem to improve this nostalgic experience.

    It might not reach the dizzy heights of seminal Resident Evil, but Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is nonetheless a solid fleshy slab of survival horror that represents great value for money and a fun few hours of infected freak shooting.

    Resident Evil Revelations 2 is a pretty good entry in the series from Capcom. While the actual horror elements, barring some jump scares, aren't that common, you'll still feel a bit spooked out in various moments of the story. For those that want action, however, the Raid mode is by far the star of the package.

    A blend of Resident Evil old and new, Revelations 2 does itself, and the franchise, justice falling a little short simply due to a couple of poor episodes. [Issue#123, p.77]

    Resident Evil: Revelations 2 brings back a few classic RE staples, but still won't please most longtime fans. Those seeking standard action will still enjoy the third-person shooter gameplay though.

    The episodes have frequently quoted Franz Kafka to serve as a running theme for its ineffectual storyline. I’d like to end my review of this episode – and the game overall – with a Kafka quote of my own. “Start with what is right rather than what is acceptable.” If Capcom had done that, maybe Resident Evil Revelations 2 would have been good.

    Huge step towards the right direction. Plus it's great to see Claire back after friggin' 12 years. Raid mode is also awesome. If capcom wantsHuge step towards the right direction. Plus it's great to see Claire back after friggin' 12 years. Raid mode is also awesome. If capcom wants to please both action and survival horror fan base, all they need to do is to make a survival horror RE (like most players want) and add raid mode. Simple. Expand

    A Suspenseful story, complemented by a dark and dingy backdrop made progressing absurdly uncomforting. Each corner, each doorway and ever flickering light had me on the edge of my seat. It is truly one of the best of the franchise.

    Rev2 is a great mix of action and horror. I think it's better than the previous Revelations that was already very good.

    Playing two
    Rev2 is a great mix of action and horror. I think it's better than the previous Revelations that was already very good.

    Playing two characters at the same time felt strange at first until I realized how strategic the game could be if done correctly.
    I didn't get lost in the maps as I did in Revelations 1 which is something I appreciated (but this is really a matter of personal opinion as some players like to explore and search).

    We travel into very different environments much like RE4 and I really enjoyed the characters. I particularly appreciated Moira and her evolution through out the campaign.

    The game is a very good mix of action and suspense and I really hope a third installment will happen soon!

    Non content de recycler sa licence usée jusqu'à la corde, Capcon la propose désormais saucissonnée en épisodes et en passe saisonnier parceNon content de recycler sa licence usée jusqu'à la corde, Capcon la propose désormais saucissonnée en épisodes et en passe saisonnier parce que ça leur coûte moins cher et que le moindre petit profit est bon à tondre sur le dos des moutons. Cette fois, ce n'est pas Jill mais Claire qu'on dirige dont on se lasse à regret de son joli popotin, car même le plus joli cul ne parvient pas à vous faire rester sur cette infamie evilienne plus que le strict nécessaire.

    On a tout de même une jolie VF et des graphismes corrects mais la jouabilité, ils l'ont oubliée par contre : elle ne figurait apparemment pas dans le cahier des charges. La litanie des DLC, oui (quand on vous dit que les éditeurs japonais sont les pires au monde... c'est vrai). On s'emmerde donc très vite dans ce couloir à la recherche des clés de ceci, des clés de cela puis on passe à autre chose : ce genre de "jeu" à couillons, nous n'en voulons pas !
