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 on the Xbox One is a solid port of a five-year-old survival horror adventure that’s perfect for those jumping into the franchise for the first time (or those who are looking to triple dip).

    If you know nothing but Resident Evil 7, then you may well find this as a step back, but if you’re looking for a solid Resident Evil game or simply a horror title in general, then Resident Evil Revelations isn’t a bad way to go – just maybe ignore things when Jessica starts her Chris Redfield daydreaming.

    Resident Evil: Revelations is perfect for fans of the franchise who don’t own a 3DS or didn’t take advantage of the last-gen release. Equally suited are die-hard fans who want the chance to experience the game again (or even again), this time with Trophy and Achievement support. It was a great return to the elements that made Resident Evil great, and helped Capcom to realise how we wanted Resident Evil 7. Get back on that ship.

    This version received a bump up to 1080p resolution, just as you'd expect from a remastered classic. It also sports an improved frame rate, increased environmental detail, and refined creature movement. That's not to say it looks perfect; some of the textures are noticeably low resolution. But all told, this is the best that Revelations has ever looked, and series fans won't be disappointed.

    Resident Evil Revelations arrives the way that we expected but without surprises. The extras included in this version do not stand out in more ways than having all the content on a disc and a 'face washing'. At the plot level it brings some interesting things about the plot and the moment in which it develops, so this new version is the perfect excuse to play it.

    With Resident Evil 7: Biohazard suggesting that the main entry games are again pivoting in a new direction, Capcom's re-rerelease of Revelations may be its way of showing fans that it's also committed to the "classic" Resident Evil formula with this side series. While the visuals have aged considerably in the short timeframe, the classic Resident Evil gameplay and feel is still there, complete with a bonkers B-grade storyline. I’d dare say that most Resident Evil fans have possibly found a way to have played this already, and there is really no incentive to come back for another round.

    "Resident Evil Revelations" was a pleasant surprise when it was first released on the Nintendo 3DS in 2012. A critically acclaimed title, it"Resident Evil Revelations" was a pleasant surprise when it was first released on the Nintendo 3DS in 2012. A critically acclaimed title, it was considered to be a return to form for the series. This Xbox One HD port features 1080p/60 FPS and enhanced lighting effects. Visually, the game has never looked better. Additionally, all DLC is included as well new features exclusive to console. So if you've never played "Revelations" before, then you can't go wrong with this $20 edition. Chronologically, the story is set between RE 5 and 6. It follows Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield as they try to stop a bioterrorist group from unleashing a virus into the oceans.

    While "Revelations" isn't scary, it is a solid entry that recalls some of the older installments in the franchise. Like the classic RE games, it includes a few goofy lines and some dorky characters (i.e. Quint and Keith). However, the plot does resemble an episode of "24" more than it does "Day of the Dead". Ultimately, this is a satisfying action-based horror game. It may not rank with the best of the series, but it's nowhere near the bottom of the barrel. Overall, I'd give this a 7.5 out of 10.
