Resident Evil Revelations
IT's about time!!
I have been a true fan to the resident evil series. I love one, two, code veronica and part four. The 5th was okay I guess and the 6th was awful . I was so disappointed in the last two. I started playing the resident evil revelations and I think they have redeemed themselves with this one. I am really happy and enjoy playing this one a lot. I am only on episode 5 and I can not wait to see what happens next. This is my first review I have ever written about any game and it was well worth it. I give this game two thumbs up.
Puts the Story all Together
I have been a RE fan ever since I got RE 4 for my Wii console. I also bought 5 and 6 (don't get the HD remake of 4 for Xbox or PC - the game play is horrible!). Anyway, I saw Revelations and thought that I would try it. The game blew me away! They introduced a new scanner that is used to gather biological data on enemies after they are killed has well as search for hidden ammo and grenades. It's a cool feature and I love using it. What I like best about the game is that each chapter is played from a different character's perspective and the QuickTime movie vignettes give you a little more information each time so the entire story is put together and makes sense. The only reason that this didn't get a 10 rating was that for HD graphics, they still can't get the mouths to move in a natural way. Most of the closeups of the characters talking still look like puppets. Maybe I am being picky, but the game is written for 1080 definition. Otherwise, this game will give you hours of entertainment. I recommend plotting your movements in the ship because it is very easy to get turned around and the plot map that supposedly shows your movements and destination aren't always accurate. Plus, they don't show the direction you are facing, so a lot of time is wasted clicking back and forth as you move. The heads up display map is only good for the section you presently occupy, so I have gone in circles several times which can be frustrating. I have the same complaint about the last boss. I am playing in easy mode and can't finish the game because it is almost impossible to kill him! I shudder to think how hard it would be in normal or advanced play mode! However, the game is great and I highly recommend it.
Worth getting for old school fans and RPG lovers
First off, Id like to say I was blown away with how much depth raid mode has, that mode is like borderlands meets resident evil ; the only thing that let me down was your level is shared between all characters in raid mode. So I feel like it lost some replay value there, but don't get me wrong it's replay value is immense. The guns have randomly generated stats ie: fire rate, reload speed, damage. Along with special affixs that can appear on them like increased reload speed and capacity, or even run speed. The mods you can get for your guns are extremely varied, there are mods for your classic gun damage, reload speed etc... then there are mods that effect how you would play: increases damage the closer/further away from the enemy you are. All of these things add depth to this mode and it makes it feel like it wasn't just an afterthought to tack onto the main game. Oh, did I mention there is named monsters in raid mode! :) The campaign while good really does feel like it was tacked on to raid mode just because of the shear depth of that mode. All in all this game is worth getting both for old school fans of the series and RPG lovers.
Resident Evil: Revelations
Resident Evil just doesn't stop with the action. I didn't think that after the release of Resident Evil 6, there wouldn't be any more Resident Evil's. The last resident evil had a great campaign and I have high expectations for this one. I hope it comes with a cool bonus. Pre ordering soon !
The Evil is back
Loved the game, it's about time Resident Evil gets back to it's roots.I would say pick this game up it will not be a let down.
Great for 3DS, Should Be Better On Console.
This game is absolutely great! The story is phenomenal and the characters are great! This game blew us away for graphics on the 3DS, it should be a major improvement for consoles. Can't wait for this game!
Best Resident Evil Since RE5
Watching 7 hours of this game was compelely worth it! 15 hour single player story, not including difficulty setbacks, co-op raid mode, weapon upgrades, better than Mercinaries mode, not timed. Jill, Chris are back as this game takes place before RE5's Lost in Nighmares DLC, ALL RE FANS CAN CELEBRATE!
Capcom don't let me down.
I really hope this resident evil will be a $50 worthy buy. Resident Evil 6 was a let down. I returned it within a week. The console version is going to have alot more than the 3DS version. Like, high quality HD, better lighting effects, great sound, improved Raid mode, new weapons, modes, enemies, and characters. Overall we get to shoot some zombies in the face. Pre-order!
I feel insulted by capcom
Having been an all time fan of the franchise it felt like seeing on of the movies... bad scripts, cliche characters and a story line that barely keeps itself... not to mention the poor gaming. It feels as if capcom got every kid on internship and made them work on this. I really wonder who wrote this script? and why most girls have to go around half naked? I get it that it is a nintendo 3ds game so movements and graphics are not that great when translated to bigger consoles but the story line and script has nothing to do with this.... this game is not even comparable to a gun survivor version of the RE
RE1-3= Revelations, RE5=RE6
Ive been seeing a trend with the reviews on this and Resident Evil 6. It seems like the people who liked parts 1-3 happen to love this game. But the individuals who liked parts 4 and mostly 5 seem to like part 6. I happen to fall in the group of individuals who loved parts 5 and therefore was very happy with part 6. I don't know why this is getting reviews better than 6, when its literally like half the game 6 is. It was originally designed for the mobile market and was ported to consoles. Truthfully, for me and the things I loved about 6, this game is a little boring. I almost stopped playing it. I had to realize that this and Res 6 are not competing with each other, its just that some consumers like 5-6 and some like 1-3. Res 5 was my favorite Res game by far, especially with the 2 player co-op. THE @ PLAYER CO OP IN THIS GAME IS BROKEN AND EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE TWO CHARACTERS IN THE CAMPAIGN, YOU CANNOT PLAY STORY MODE WITH TWO PLAYERS. I stated that in all caps because it was not made clear to me when I bought TWO copies of the game to play multiplayer. It does have a 2 player mode (on two separate xboxes) but you don't even have cutscenes in that bare bones version. Anyway - If you love RE5 Get RE6, if you loved RE1-3, get this.
