    RE: Revelation 2 is a pretty interesting effort from Capcom to get back to the survival horror genre by improving the game play and giving a lot of content for gamers.

    Graphics: 4/10
    This is one of weakest elements of this game. The graphics are not bad but could have been much better considering the PS4 capabilities.
    Game play: 8/10
    Game play is very smooth and intuitive. Shooting is very fun, as well as the possibility to change characters and adopt their skills/equipment depending on what the current situation in the game requires. However stealth system would have been a great addition, especially when you run out of ammo, as well as further optimization on your partner's AI (when playing alone).
    Story: 9/10
    Story is interesting and is building up the suspense pretty good, additionally I love the fact they reference many quotes of Franz Kafka. Characters are pretty interesting and lovely in case of Natalia.
    Atmosphere: 6/10
    Atmosphere could have been better; the most interesting part is when Barry is in the woods. We need more of that atmosphere. The music is not scary or stressful; the enemies are quite plain and look very old fashion (design wise). Additionally the sound when using your fire arms is quite boring.
    Content: 9/10
    For the price you pay, you will have a lot of fun and different ways to beat the game.
    Co-op, raid and different difficulties are available to replay this first chapter.

    With no real gameplay innovations unique to the episodic format and the fact that Resident Evil's weakest quality has traditionally been its story, Revelations 2 is putting an awful lot of eggs in this samey-feeling basket.

    This is an entertaining, but quite linear piece of action adventure. Action is good, but the horror elements are a bit bland, since there's no time to build real tension. [March 2015]

    Overall, this first foray into Resident Evil Revelations 2 is a good one.
