by trollmatic Read this before buying!
This game all around is great. But what a lot of people don't know is that this game was originally made for 3ds. Which is why it is the way it is. But it is indeed a great resident evil game. It is just the survival game you'd expect. So don't listen to the other negative reviews, they just suck at the game and say it's "poo"

...is what this game should be called. So disappointed I didn't buy this preowned so I can get a full refund but this game WILL be traded in. This coop game is nothing like RE5 which was a great game. Even RE6 which was decent, is way better than this. The story mode will have you falling asleep so insomniacs rejoice! The computer controlled partner is completely useless. 1.) There are several instances where they just stand there without shooting even though you're being attacked by a swarm. 2.) They do stupid things like try to use a sniper rifle in close combat even though they have other guns available. and 3.) No matter how many creatures attack, they will ALWAYS... i repeat ALWAYS target YOU! It's like your A.I. partner is invisible. Majorly lame game. I've got a feeling this game may be like the wayyyy earlier RE games (which I wasn't really into) so if you like that, you may like this. But if you were looking for an exciting RE coop that is similiar to 5 and 6, look again.
Rated 0 out of 10 by TheGamecube64Guy I'm so getting the HD Remake!
I played through the 3DS version of Resident Evil: Revelations and I loved it. Graphics were amazing, and that the game brought back that chilling feeling from what made the Resident Evil series so popular and scary. So, now, the game will now be re-released in HD for the consoles with additional content (such as new playable characters in Raid Mode, such as Rachel Foley, and fan favorite HUNK), and a new difficulty setting, Infernal, which is VERY HARD. I just downloaded and played the 5 minute demo of this game on my PS3, and I think the game controls very well and looks very good! So, I might consider getting the full version when 5/24/2013 comes! :D To everyone else, if you didn't or did play the 3DS version, I would say get the HD remake on consoles if you want to experience the game again, or want to play on consoles if you haven't played the game already.
Rated 0 out of 10 by zurd0 MERCENARIES AND VS!!!!!
Capcom should make a RE specially for vs(re5 style) and mercenaries for ps3, like that 1 they released before for N3DS, but better and a good quality product
GOSH!!!!!! i would like to see Jill re1,re3, rebecca chambers, claire, richard, billy, enrico, steve, leon, chris, sheva, barry, carlos, ada with their costumes from past games, no lame costumes like in RE 6 , and all characters from past REs in a single game, with past real locations and creatures from re1 to re5
i really loved mercenaries from re4 and re5, awesome action
and re5 vs was like......... wow i played that for 5 years and never got bored
this would be a dream, and with a well planned gameplay i'm sure it would be a hit, i never would get bored with that game xD
Rated 0 out of 10 by CaptPicard What Resident Evil 5 should have been...
Resident Evil Revelations looks like a proper sequel to Resident Evil 4. I have not played the game (don't own handhelds) so I can't say for sure, but from what I've heard the story is actually well thought out... aka the opposite of RE5. If only they could bring Wesker back and do it right... yah... I'm still bitter. But anyway Revelations looks incredible. It seems to maintain the RE4 gameplay style without the action focus of the last two games. It looks to be playing for tension and scare factor... god I hope this is actually scary. I haven't been scared since Code Veronica. Here's hoping Capcom has finally found a good medium of action and horror!

I traded the game 4 days after I bought it. The game play felt worst than playing the first resident evil that came out for PlayStation. I like how the latest resident evil games pair you with a partner and you are able to use combat on monsters. However, it was pointless to have a partner on this game because when you are trying to kill a monster your partner shoots a single bullet for every 20 shots you shoot. I think it would have been better to play this adventure alone. Its great to be able to punch and kick monsters and to be able to rely on other source other than guns, unlike the single knife like the old resident evil games.
Rated 10 out of 10 by alskdfslkd RE revelations
Great game, I am a huge fan of RE and I have to say RE Revelations is better than RE 6. I like the weapon upgrade system better than in RE 6, the Raid mode is very addicting and fun to play. A lot of replay value in this game in my opinion. There is not much I don't like about this game except I wish there was more hand to hand combos to perform. Playing this game for the first time made me feel almost like I felt playing RE 4 for the first time - good times, good times...anyways, if you like RE series, or if you like third person shhooters, or mayabe just horror games in general go buy this game, money well spend i promise.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Mitorher A Great Revelation of Evil
Resident Evil Revelation was original a 3DS game which was ported. Note: Is was ported greatly. With added on content that makes me happy, I'm please to say that this game is heavily survival horror. Fighting the infected Rachel is extremely tough and shows that even infected sometimes show personality. The audio is amazing, one minute I'm walking the next second I hear, "Found you" making me jump out of my pants. Its a great idea to conserve ammo if you want to survive, Ammo and Herbs, Trust me if you want to survive this revelation.
Rated 6 out of 10 by Electronaut72 Lazy port of the 3DS version - hardcore fans only!
Resident Evil: Revelations is definitely tailored for the 3DS, and it shows with this lazy port to the PS3. The graphics are muddy in spots, the dialogue and voice acting aren't up to par, there's no campaign or offline co-op, and the aiming controls are jumpy. In short, this is definitely a small screen production re-sized to fit your living room TV.
With that out of the way, there are definitely some things to like about Revelations. Chronologically, it seems to take place shortly before RE5 and reveals some key story elements that haven't been touched upon yet (such as how the public came to learn about bio-terrorism). The bulk of the game takes place on a cruise ship that resembles the mansion from the first Resident Evil--very cool. Gameplay is similar to RE5 except with the ability to walk slowly while aiming. The item management system is simple, as you can swap between your 3 weapons of choice / grenade types quickly and easily (and to use an herb you need only press triangle).
Revelations starts out disjointed and slow (I got sick of seeing the TV series-like flashbacks after every stage), though it becomes more enjoyable a couple of hours in. It's not a terribly long game--probably about 7-9 hours for the average player--but it's got flashes of greatness that harken back to the classic PS1 entries. If you're a seasoned Resident Evil fan, you should definitely give this PS3 version a try if you don't have a 3DS--just don't expect something on the same level as RE5 or 6.

I enjoyed RE:Revelations on the 3DS and with this remake I'm hoping to have a similar or better than experience. But I'm hoping that they don't come out with DLC that's locked on the disc cause then it wouldn't really be worth getting this game like if they came out with Hunk (which luckily he's already put into the game) and charged $5 for him to be unlocked and be playable and then few months later here's Super Ultimate Gold Edition Resident Evil Revelations.
