    Resident Evil fans have long been clamoring for a return to form for the series and with Revelation 2 it was clearly a step in the right direction. Blending light puzzle solving and survival horror elements with the more modern over-the-shoulder perspective delivers a truly menacing experience. Some unfortunate design decisions, mainly forcing the player to switch between characters, hold it back from being among the pantheon of greats in the series. However an interesting story, horrifyingly beautiful environments, and rock solid gameplay provide more than enough to look past its shortcomings.

    This sequel still is a great cooperative game –and very enjoyable on your own–, and this version shows how well Switch can handle “big” games.

    While Resident Evil Revelations 2 borrows sparingly from its contemporaries, it is better than it's budget would have you believe it to be. The story is just the right amount of schlock with a smaller yet more focused cast. The tension is actually present in a moody well realised setting. The overall game feel lends itself to a much more enjoyable experience when compared to its predecessor too. Add in a comprehensive (yet slightly grindy) Raid Mode and you've got yourself a winner.

    Resident Evil Revelations 2 is an awesome way to enjoy the game again in a portable machine with an interesting control system and a good technical appearance.

    Resident Evil Revelations 2 still is a pretty good entry in the series from Capcom. With great horror elements, better in terms of gunplay (motion controls rules) and full of content for Nintendo Switch.

    The Switch version of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 capably handles this entertaining horror experience. The frame rate is steady and the motion controls are mostly worth using. Load times can drag on, but they aren’t frequent enough to be a big issue. If you appreciate the thrill of sharing intimate zombie encounters with a friend, the ability to play this local co-op story with one Joy-Con a piece makes it a handy game to have on your Switch.

    Really, it feels like shovelware.

    Lo unico verdaderamente frustrante de este juego son sus infinitas pantallas de carga, sin embargo sabemos que esto sucede en todas las plataformas, esperemos que le den un poco de soporte y arreglen eso.

It has really really good graphics for Switch standard and I love the fact that you can switch between characters. It gives it so much more the feeling to interact with your enviroment.
    Great game overall.
    Sadly it is a bit short in my eyes. Also the big selling point of Resident Evil games that they are frightening isnt really the case. I dont find any RE game frightening at all (compared to lets say Outlast). It is more an atmospheric shooter than a horror survival game but it is still good.
    Absolutely worth the money you spent for it.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I didn't like at all that the main antagonist of Lansdale was not killed or he was not turned into a monster, so it would be more interesting and these new three characters, such as Vester and O'Brian and Luciani did not like at all, they are very ugly and boring and it is a pity that they were not killed in the story.
