    The Resident Evil franchise is one of my favorite franchises in the gaming world. Some fans of the original three titles started criticizingThe Resident Evil franchise is one of my favorite franchises in the gaming world. Some fans of the original three titles started criticizing the last couple entries that it went too far away from the horror genre and became too much of an action game. I personally did not mind the change, but I can see where those voices were coming from. The first Resident Evil: Revelations game was a step back to the horror genre and though it included plenty of action, both older and newer players of the series generally praised it, rightfully so! The latest entry, Resident Evil: Revelations 2 - Episode 1 continues in that direction as it provides plenty of scares and horrific environments filled with zombies and monsters, but it also provides enough action to please fans of 5 and 6. The story in the first episode is also very exciting, probably the best and most interesting one in the series for a long time. It will be told in three more episodes and I can't wait to find out how it will end. The stars this time around are two well-loved characters from the very first game, Claire Redfield and Barry Burton, and introduces two new members as well, Natalia and Moira. Moira is Barry's daughter who gets kidnapped along with Claire at a party and they both wake up inprisoned in an island facility where they try to escape from, while Barry enters the same island in search for his daughter and along the way meets a young girl named Natalia, who also seemed to be kidnapped. With two playable characters in both sides of the story, the co-op also returns as well, whcih I absolutely love because I usually play the Resident Evil games with my brother! The two controlable characters differ vastly though, as Claire and Barry are badasses with weapons and melee kills while Moira and Natalia are more for puzzle solving than action, though they do their killing parts OK when they have to. After finishing the first part of the story, Raid Mode provides plenty more fun as well. It is not as fun to me as The Mercenaries mode was but it's still very good. Unlockables, collectables and upgradable skills will also keep hardcore fans engaged for a long time. They graphics are excellent still on the PS3, and as usual the voice acting, music and the sounds are as good as ever. The weapons also feel great and the martial arts finishers are here too. If you like the series you will like this game as well, very well worth the price! Outstanding! Expand
