    Revelation has some flaws - an imperfect controlling system, some short and too easy levels and really stupid story moments, that are typical for the Resident Evil series. Still, despite all this, the new RE is a great game. Episodic formula works great with telling a large, multithreaded story, the game has some real horror, great boss fights and a new game mode. It's definitely worth your time.

    It’s been so long since I could say, without any second guessing or qualifiers, that I like a Resident Evil game. I don’t just like Revelations — I adore it. Slower mechanics, scrounging for items, and marching headlong into the unknown are features not entirely lost in new RE games, but they’re rarely expressed as well as they were in pre-RE4 titles.

    Porting Revelations to make it readily available to millions of gamers was a smart move by Capcom, but if you have played the 3DS version already then there is nothing new here for you. For everyone else, Capcom has done console and PC gamers a favor in providing a thrilling and riveting addition to this truly evil series.

    Revelations is definitely reminiscent of the old school days of the series, and those craving that particular experience should not miss out.

    This HD version shares all the problems its predecessor has, including noticeably limited enemy variety and weak allied AI that can't hit the broad side of a barn.

    Revelations is a decent adventure, but it doesn't come close to reaching the heights the series has in the past.

    Challenging, fun, exciting, creepy,
    As Resident Evil fan (since Re/bio1)I like the way they brought back the old school "survival horror" and mixed it in with the new school look.
    But the Controlls are a bit annoying (at the first moment) and I wasn't happy about jill's look, not the best(preffe the design from re5) but it is okay.
    so um,
    9/10.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I originally played this on the 3ds when it first came out but since sold off the 3ds and the game. But I have since found it on steam and found it to be a much more excellent and well rounded entry in the RE franchise. I haven't felt scared playing RE since RE3 Nemesis and Code VEronica X. This game delivers top scary moments unlike some of the post RE4 games. I know RE4 was popular with the fresh look and controls but it lacked the fear factor and tension of the original trilogy.

    Revelations gets the action and horror balance just right with the new scanner to add more depth to finding items and studying your enemies. Not only are we treated to some old characters and enemies but the new t-abyss creatures are a welcome yet terrifying site. While I will miss the bog standard zombies of old the T-Abyss creatures make up for it. The return of the Hunters is a great nostalgia moment and they are as dangerous as ever.

    The overall plot is very good, out of all the RE Franchise Revelations feels much more character driven. Your not just stuck with one character to play as too. You jump between 4 pairs of characters to control throughout the game. Each pairing has different exclusive enemies to face so the game wont get repetative.

    Graphically I wasn't expecting a huge jump from 3ds to PC but they are good enough. But on a large screen the sight of a T-Abyss creature or a Hunter coming at you is much more intense than it is on a handheld console.

    Not much else I can say except if your a resident evil fan you will love this game, if your new to resident evil this is a great game to try out

    This game is nothing like the original Resident Evil games. For the first few chapters (the chapters last about 20 minutes at a time) the gameThis game is nothing like the original Resident Evil games. For the first few chapters (the chapters last about 20 minutes at a time) the game has a little bit of backtracking on an empty ship, then it turns into pretty hardcore action straight onto the end. It feels like a pint-sized version of Resident Evil 5. There is some backtracking included, but only after clearing out rooms filled with ooze. At that point, the ship is so uninteresting the backtracking just wastes time since there are zero interesting puzzles, just finding keys.

    There are times this feels like a kiddie game despite the overly sexual Jessica and a tiny bit of cursing because of silly anime style side characters and the weak gore factor. There is blood spurting and splashing, but you can't even get decapitated and the enemies melt into puddles of ooze. To be expected being original made for a kid's handheld console.

    After finishing the game, I have to say this is the weakest ending to a Resident Evil game ever. Good thing it wasn't a part of the main series.

    Emotions usually run high at game launches and people only want to listen to what they want to hear, but I'll say this game isn't worth full sticker price. It plays like a slightly enhanced mobile game and not the HD remake you would be expecting. There are some genuinely thrilling moments (this is an action game, not scary like survival horror), but overall I'm a bit disappointed.

    This was a major step backwards from RE6 in virtually every category. I expected much better from the latest of the Resident Evil franchise.This was a major step backwards from RE6 in virtually every category.

    terribly ported game. to be honest, on a 3ds it might be fun to play, on a pc its just a waste of money.
    the graphics are dated, the are many ugly looking textures and videobugs like floating blood,
    enemies often get stuck walking into objects, the levels are so short and boring, then youre spammed with video cut sequences, and to make it even worse, you have to watch a resume of what you just did in a short video as well, every few levels.
    i didnt expect much, but this game still disappointed me.
    if youre looking for a fun resident evil game, buy any game but this. honestly. in my opinion, even racoon city was more fun to play.
    graphics 0 sounds 0 (pistol sounds like a toygun, etc.) animations 0, story 3, controls 1, actual fun while playing 0 all together its not worth buying, not even on sale. get it on ds or else it will feel like a robbery.
