Being a long-time RE fan, I enjoyed most of the games the series has produced. Resident Evil Revelations 2 is certainly no exception. Granted that the graphics aren't exactly 'up-to-date', but the gameplay and story certainly makes up for that and especially for what is considered to be a low budget game for only $25 for the whole season. Excluding the Raid mode (which I will get to in a bit), I always able to play through a solid 3 hours with the first episode. This is actually wonderful considering the entire season will essentially be around 12 hours roughly; so it's definitely not a short game. The first campaign did not scare me so much considering that I've watched many videos with Claire Redfield gameplay, however, Barry's campaign certainly did give me quite a few jump scares. Both campaigns are certainly fun to play and while some may complain that the environment may seem dull, I myself am quite pleased with the background environment during the gameplay (brings back memories of Code Veronica). The dialogue has improved over the past few games and while Moira's dialogue may seem over the top, it should be noted that this is in fact Barry 'What IS this' Burton's Daughter.
Raid Mode as always is quite fun. I have played the Mercenary Mode in the past RE games and they have certainly kept me entertained. However, I do prefer Raid Mode in the Revelations series since it's definitely a lot faster paced, with options to upgrade weapons, fight over-sized monsters charging towards you and it certainly helps practice your aiming for when you go through campaign mode without sacrificing precious ammunition.
That being said I am definitely satisfied with the first episode of this game and would actually recommend it for those interested in playing. However, if you are an old-school fan who enjoyed fixed camera angles and painted horror game background, you might wanna steer clear of this.
Hope this helped!
This first episode of Resident Evil Revelations 2 is not fantastic but quite efficient. Playing with groups of two characters is nice, the atmosphere is as dark as we expected... Well, it does the job and makes us impatient to play the rest of the game in the next episode.
The gameplay is really interesting and the game is awesome. The graphics are excellent for an episodic game and Moira flashlight is very good . This game is better than 6 and 5 .I hope Resident Evil 7 be good like this game.
Revelations 2 plays really nicely and the first episode really makes me begging for more. I really like the overall feeling of the first episode and even after finishing the 2-2.5 hour campaign of the first episode, there is tons of content in the funny raid mode. Other than some magazines, I really like the new additions to the gameplay with moira and that other girl. The only letdown are really the graphics, but that's okay with me. It's not always the looks that matter. Btw: Barry dropes an amazing line at the end of episode 1. People how played the original first resident evil will love this ^^
Revelations 2 is a great game, the characters is charismatics and the climate is very good. Barry has a great personality, Claire have the same characteristics on other Resident Evil yet. The monsters are nice and fun. Soundtrack is ok. Graphycs is a negative point in this game, I have played on my ps4, and the graphycs would be better. But its dont disrupts the gamming.
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.
However graphics and atmosphere need to be improved substantially if they want to reach the top.
Overall rate: 7/10
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 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 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.
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.
I liked this game alot as a resident evil fan and when it first came out I made lots of accounts on here to push it's score up on different platforms maybe not this one I cant remember sorry for tricking people I feel bad about it now
