    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.

While I can't say tha the game is anything that unique, it's mechanics and gameplay are solid with some good voice acting and all the campy and cheesiness to be expected. If you like the action games in the RE series, or just want to play using classic characters, it's recommended, but can't say that for everyone. Expand

    Good game, but unacceptable port! RE:R2 is NOT a technically demanding game, yet the frame-rate, which was more or less a rock solid 60fps onGood game, but unacceptable port! RE:R2 is NOT a technically demanding game, yet the frame-rate, which was more or less a rock solid 60fps on PS4 & XBOne, dwindles often below the 30fps mark, yet there is no clear evidence as to why the Switch couldn’t hit 60fps as well, this is hardly Metal Gear Solid 5 they are porting after all. Things in the original releases, such as aiming, were a breeze, and very fluid. Here however, aiming has become more imprecise as a result of the wobbly frame rate, which is as you can imagine, more than a little frustrating. Load times have also taken a turn for the worse too, waiting times for the campaign can last upto nearly 3 minutes. Nevertheless, the game is still enjoyable minus the jarring setbacks introduced on this port. The game features all the DLC content from the off-set, the campaign is exciting, and the Raid Mode is still an absolute blast to play. The portability factor is what you will predominately decide your purchase on obviously. Even though the port underdelivers on expectations, you are not going to be able to play this game to this level of quality anywhere else for the time being, as despite the critical words I have towards this port, it is still vastly superior to the PS Vita version. Overall, a great budget game, ported poorly to an (arguably) overpowered handheld. Hopefully Capcom will continue to support this version with patches for improvement to performance in the future. 5/10. Expand
