Excerpt: The Resident Evil series has changed a lot over the years. Gone are the tank-like controls, the confusing backtracking segments, and the punishing inventory limitations that basically defined the first four games in the franchise (including Code: Veronica X). When you think about it, the core experience has evolved a lot since Resident Evil 4 to accommodate the fans of modern shooters, from the over-the-shoulder perspective to the plentiful ammo and health items...
Excerpt: Look, let’s just cut right to the meat of the Jill sandwich here: Resident Evil Revelations is a game you can sink your teeth into. It layers a delectable amount of graphical polish on top of a beefy, action-packed showpiece for the technology of the 3DS, and tops it all off with just the right amount of aged, B-movie cheese. Toss in a side of unhealthily addictive multiplayer, and you’ve got one heck of a value meal.
Review: Resident Evil: Revelations proves it is worthy of console love
13 February 2012
Excerpt: As someone who’s never owned a handheld console beyond the original Game Boy, certain games came and went that I would have loved the opportunity to play but simply couldn’t. January of last year, Resident Evil: Revelations was released for Nintendo’s 3DS, and, despite my wild desires to solve mysteries and shoot zombies with Capcom’s beloved Jill Valentine, it passed me by.
Excerpt: The 3DS had a rocky start. I don't need to tell you that, it was apparent by the extremely lackluster launch titles. Then the first party titles came and things started picking up. Does Resident Evil: Revelations continue the trend as a must-have game for your 3DS? Simply said, yes . Resident Evil: Revelations puts you in control of Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine, as well as some other members of BSAA, in an all new adventure that takes place between RE4 and RE5 .
Excerpt: fan. It sometimes scares me how many times I’ll buy the next iteration in the series from so many different regions, JUST to secure the various pre-order bonuses or collector’s packages that are available.
Excerpt: I'm really digging the Nintendo 3DS console but the lack of mature games is a little disconcerting. So when I heard that Resident Evil was going to made for the 3DS, I was ecstatic to say the least. We were finally getting a real MA15+ game for this console and best of all, it was based in the Resident Evil universe which would also use the revolutionary 3D capabilities of this console. It was also an original new story, not some cheap port!
Conclusion: Resident Evil Revelations was a genuine eye-opener and one hell of a thrill-ride. It handles like a dream, looks magnificent, has a completely immersive score, clever sound design and unique gameplay mechanics taking the series leaps and bounds forward. Do yourself a favour and check this bad boy out.
Excerpt: Survival horror games are at their best when they funnel you into confined spaces. This has held true for every game in the Resident Evil series, from the claustrophobic corridors of the original to the darkened, monster-rammed alcoves of the Spencer Estate. The smaller the spaces, the more potent the scares.
