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

    There is absolutely no denial that this game is very good, with a decent campaign to play through and an absolutely amazing online mode to sink hundreds of hours into. However, because it is this game's third incarnation on a Nintendo system, whether or not to purchase Resident Evil: Revelations will all come down to whether one wants to play it again, or whether or not it is their very first time. First-time players should not hesitate, as this is probably the best way to play this game - ever! Potential double- or even triple-dippers should simply consider what they are looking for. It is likely that the online mode won't be supported much longer on the older systems, and the Switch allows you to play it in the best conditions, save for the lack of means of communication with people met inside the game. Nothing can be taken away from how good the RAID mode is, though, so those who can't help but want more of it on the newest system shouldn't have any reasons to feel ashamed of themselves. It's a blast to blast oozes into oblivion.

    I found Resident Evil Revelations to be a great fit for the Switch. The campaign does a great job of keeping the player on the edge of their seat, the Raid Mode is a fun bonus and a blast to play through, and the new motion controls feel very intuitive in handheld mode. The fact that it's an HD remaster of a 3DS game does hold it back a little, with inconsistent graphics and frequent loading rooms - but all in all it still feels great to play. Whether you've experienced it before or it's your first time playing, Resident Evil Revelations is a superb action/horror title that is worth exploring.

    Stranded on a cruise ship with a bunch of zombies- evil lurking in dark places. Resident Evil Revelations brings a true sense of horror to the Nintendo Switch.

    A great horror game in Nintendo Switch, that keeps the experience of the original but with interesting add-ons like the movement-based controls.

    Resident Evil Revelations is played better than never before on Switch through a better resolution and motion controls.

    Resident Evil Revelations on the Switch is a great campaign to run through, and a fun online mode to spend time with if you’re still hungry for more. It feels a little bit aged now, years on from its original release, but it plays better than ever on Nintendo Switch thanks to gyro aiming, high framerates, and a crisp, sharp resolution. Well worth jumping in for Resident Evil fans and anyone looking for a fun, handheld shooter campaign.

    Of the two, I give the tip to the first Revelations, as that boat setting really is up there with the original Resident Evil’s mansion, and Resident Evil 0’s train as a distinctive and brilliantly designed environment. Otherwise I find these games to be unremarkable. Entertaining, but unremarkable.

    I'll give it a solid 9! And I'm gonna tell ya why!
    The story is not unique and rather cliche, but how it is brought deserves mini Oscar! Some twists will definitely please your soul) I like how the focus goes from one area with one character to another, some folks have very interesting personality and funny behavior)
    The idea with the scanner that allows you to find hidden items and fingerprints is what took me to this game) I am a slow gamer that likes entering each room, each corner searching for some loot or ammo, finding hidden safes and so on. I like when developers encourage attentive players with power ups and upgrades.
    And here lies one little bad thing. Last chapters (which are obviously Boss fights more or less) don't give you the opportunity to use all your weapon upgrades and power, cause you'll mostly need your timing skills (f!ck you Devil May Cry and other franchises) and learning the patterns...
    Other than that, it's an absolete jewel and walking slowly (yeap you cant fast run here) through the old mansion-look interiors will give you much nostalgia and warm feelings)

I played it after playing the sequel. Like the second It is well hidden in the eshop. You have to look deep and it is often on offer. The game offers around 20 hours of fun. The raid mode isn't as good as the second game.

    I prefer the second installment of this game, but this is still another must have Switch game if you are fan of survival horror games like I am. If you like sequel you should also pick this up.
