    Revelations really knocks it out of the park when it comes to bringing that classic Resident Evil feel but a bit more modernized.

    Resident Evil Revelations 2 is absolutely great. The Raid Mode is very addictive, and the Episodes offer a compelling story. Some minor graphics flaws and simple enemies only seem to improve this nostalgic experience.

    It might not reach the dizzy heights of seminal Resident Evil, but Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is nonetheless a solid fleshy slab of survival horror that represents great value for money and a fun few hours of infected freak shooting.

    Resident Evil Revelations 2 is a pretty good entry in the series from Capcom. While the actual horror elements, barring some jump scares, aren't that common, you'll still feel a bit spooked out in various moments of the story. For those that want action, however, the Raid mode is by far the star of the package.

    A blend of Resident Evil old and new, Revelations 2 does itself, and the franchise, justice falling a little short simply due to a couple of poor episodes. [Issue#123, p.77]

    Resident Evil: Revelations 2 brings back a few classic RE staples, but still won't please most longtime fans. Those seeking standard action will still enjoy the third-person shooter gameplay though.

    The episodes have frequently quoted Franz Kafka to serve as a running theme for its ineffectual storyline. I’d like to end my review of this episode – and the game overall – with a Kafka quote of my own. “Start with what is right rather than what is acceptable.” If Capcom had done that, maybe Resident Evil Revelations 2 would have been good.

    (Disk version reviewed)

    Easily surpasses the previous entry and is a blast of a game with a solid mix of the campaign horror and puzzle solving from older entries but with the mix of action that the entries since RE5 have brought us, and an added bonus that you don't need to have played the previous 'Revelations' game to jump into this one. The story isn't too over the top but the eccentric characters are exactly what you would expect from a RE title. The first 'Revelations' game got to be a bit much and seems to drag on, but this really does blow that out of the water and even though it is an episode themed game it doesn't have that feeling of trying to hard to be a TV show. The 'Raid Mode' is where the replay really shines here, which is a co-op style of what was previously known as 'Mercenaries' but with a total emphasis on the leveling up of unique character abilities and even the collection and customization of weapons. The game looks amazing and stays at such a smooth and beautiful frame rate, easily surpassing several other full-priced titles out now. At the time of this review the online co-op for raid mode had not yet been enabled but does support split screen play as well as further game enhancement for those registered to residentevil.net which tracks gameplay and offers more bonus items. Very close to a perfect entry in my eyes; the only thing that would make this game better would be more of a range of weapons to be found in raid mode, which in the previous 'Revelations' entry it was a seemingly endless amount of a variety of guns whereas in 'Revelations 2' its very quick you notice you are finding the same weapons over again just at a higher level. A great play for action or horror lovers and a must own for any Resident Evil fan.

    A Suspenseful story, complemented by a dark and dingy backdrop made progressing absurdly uncomforting. Each corner, each doorway and ever flickering light had me on the edge of my seat. It is truly one of the best of the franchise.

It's a darker installment with less silly humor and was initially released as separate episodes. The disc version contains a few bonus scenarios and costumes. While I wouldn't call this a better game than the original "Revelations", I would say it has its own distinct feel. The two games compliment each other well and both should please RE fans. I would rate this with an 8 out of 10. Expand

Cette fois, ce n'est pas Jill mais Claire qu'on dirige dont on se lasse à regret de son joli popotin, car même le plus joli cul ne parvient pas à vous faire rester sur cette infamie evilienne plus que le strict nécessaire.

    On a tout de même une jolie VF et des graphismes corrects mais la jouabilité, ils l'ont oubliée par contre : elle ne figurait apparemment pas dans le cahier des charges. La litanie des DLC, oui (quand on vous dit que les éditeurs japonais sont les pires au monde... c'est vrai). On s'emmerde donc très vite dans ce couloir à la recherche des clés de ceci, des clés de cela puis on passe à autre chose : ce genre de "jeu" à couillons, nous n'en voulons pas !
