Resident Evil Revelations
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 But what a lot of people don't know is that this game was originally made for 3ds.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"
Terrible Game and not survival horror
Okay let's clear this up, this is a wannabe survival horror game and a desperate attempt to get more fans, the controls are so terrible they're worse than the first Resident Evil, this is more action than RE6! This is nowhere near survival horror, it's a awful game so don't waste your money.
What I want for Resident Evil Games
I'm probably being generous with this game by one point but it does something more than just try to have scary parts like Resident Evil 6 did. Resident Evil 6 for Leon's campaign might have had great atmosphere at the beginning if there wasn't fifty zombies piling after you fighting for screen time. Not to say that these monsters take the Amnesia route but they find that good spot of being plentiful but not to the point where I'm completely over them and I do like the shooting mechanics as it takes that route of being an upgrade of RE4 without making it the crazy combo system of RE6. Also the raid mode is fun and it's got nice atmosphere in the ship bits. Since that's the main part the game is overall good, but not perfect.
The game looks great for originally being on a 3DS, but it does show at times. The story is broken into different parts with each part starting with a recap of the previous episode which was made because it's a handheld and they wanted emphasize the story. I hated this when Alone in the Dark Inferno did it, but it has a reason here so can't hate it too much. I will the story seems convoluted at times when you have to ask yourself when did a ship filled with monsters become the solution for three different factions.
I hate the side parts when different characters because it feels like I'm playing a different game when the invisible hunters show up I nearly throw in the towel. That is stupid Capcom, not scary. Especially since it's with the worst characters of the game. Now these aren't really horrible I just think the game would be very much stronger without them and the more the game is like the parts on the ship, the better it is. Hopefully this is where Resident Evil goes from now on instead of trying to climb to the top of the shooter hill.
All i can say is that I'm glad I only rented this game and didn't waste $50 on it.. Resident Evil 5 is sooo much better.
Re:Revelations its all about the puzzles & surviving again! Of course not like our old RE games, but still its pretty good! Graphics are great for a game that was designed for Nintendo 3DS. Don't like the voice acting, (Specially on Jill) but overall this game is good and a real RE fan would appreciate the quality of this video game.
...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.
This game is very good I like how they went back to the horror roots of the game and this is a perfect step towards the old ways.
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.
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.
this is a good game and it has some intense parts. you have to stay on your toes and make sure you have a gun ready so you can shoot at any moment. good game.
