Furthermore, the home console version will deliverThe fear that was originally brought to players in Resident Evil Revelations on the Nintendo 3DS system returns redefined for home consoles complete with high quality HD visuals, enhanced lighting effects and an immersive sound experience. Furthermore, the home console version will deliver additional content including a terrifying new enemy, extra difficulty mode and improvements to Raid Mode such as new weapons, skill sets and the opportunity to play as Hunk and other characters from the series. Raid Mode, which was first introduced to the series in the original version of Resident Evil Revelations, sees gamers play online in co-op mode or alone in single player taking on the hordes of enemies across a variety of missions whilst leveling up characters and earning weapon upgrades. The critically acclaimed survival horror title takes players back to the events that took place between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, revealing the truth about the T-Abyss virus. Resident Evil Revelations features series favorites Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, plus their respective BSAA partners - Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat. The action begins on board a supposedly abandoned cruise ship, the 'Queen Zenobia', where horrors lurk around every corner before players head for the mainland and the devastated city of Terragrigia. With limited ammo and weapons available, the race is on to survive the horror of Resident Evil Revelations. Expand

    Resident Evil Revelations is another great addition to the franchise. It maintains the survivor-horror feel that the series is known for. The campaign isn’t the longest, but it is engaging and well worth the time. Raid mode is fun to go through afterwards and try out different weapons. Altogether a satisfying challenge and a very enjoyable experience that I had a hard time putting down.

    Visually, Resident Evil: Revelations is a bit rough around the edges but that doesn't hold it back from being an intense and enjoyable action-based entry in the series, either by playing solo or teaming up with a friend in Raid Mode.

    While it can’t shake off its mobile 3DS roots and is aged a bit, but this was and still is one of the better entries in the Resident Evil franchise.

    If you've played other versions you won't find major differences here apart from some visual upgrades, but it holds up pretty well, and it still offers a good balance between the classic and the modern Resident Evil games.

    Resident Evil Revelations offers a good port of the original game. The game now has a solid 1080p/60fps and some bonuses in Raid mode. That being said, if you have already played it, the purchase is highly dispensable.

    If you’re a newcomer to Resident Evil, this is not the place to start. Go with this year’s Resident Evil 7 if you’re looking for something innovative, modern and terrifying. If pure action is what you’re after, the remastered editions of Resident Evil 4 and 5 are much easier recommendations.

    Although Resident Evil: Revelations remains a great game in its own right, it’s hard to recommend this HD (HD-er?) version to even staunch loyalists of Capcom’s fright fest, especially if they picked up the home console release in the last hardware generation. The exception would be those who really loved Raid, as the new Chaos mode might prove reason enough to revisit. Instead, this is probably best suited to those who’ve never played Revelations before, or who came to Resident Evil off the back of Resi 7 and are curious about the series’ history. Even if you fall into that camp, unless you’re a one format gamer, holding out for the Switch release seems wise.

I liked the pace and storyline of this game in addition to the fear factor. The graphics surprisingly hold up very well and by far the best looking Jill in the series imo. Expand

    Revelations feels very fresh as it tones down on the over-the-top action and relies more on the survival horror its brilliant cruise shipRevelations feels very fresh as it tones down on the over-the-top action and relies more on the survival horror its brilliant cruise ship setting so effortlessly produces. This is a nice change of pace for the series. The graphics look surprisingly sharp with only the character models looking quite rough. The episodic structure of the game slightly misses the mark as the tension of Jill's ship exploration is broken up by extremely dull run-and-gun flashback sequences. The story is also quite silly, the A.I. is simply bad, and there could be more enemy variety. Anyway, it is still a refreshing experience that did have some potential to be even greater. Expand

    I do not advise complaining about the plot. First of all, Resident Evil: revelations is interesting for its gaming atmosphere. Our expectI do not advise complaining about the plot. First of all, Resident Evil: revelations is interesting for its gaming atmosphere. Our expect closed space and the same sense of fear, which managed to miss many fans. Each new part of the franchise brought new types of viruses and mutants. In this part of the zombies have the features of marine life and are similar to creatures from the works of Lovecraft.

    I wouldn't count on our partner. As you know the HD version came to us from 3DS, where artificial intelligence problems. In battle, he is not very much help. The good news is that he is immortal. I didn't really like the shooting and the attack avoidance system. Scanning the premises after some time it begins to bore and even annoy.

    Resident Evil: Revelations does not seek to return to the origins. Horror here - more a tribute to the past and nostalgic fans than a full element of gameplay. But even a weak sense of horror and loneliness enough to successfully stand out from the last number parts
