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.
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.
Excerpt: The cranky grandmother of console survival horror games has crept on to the Nintendo 3DS with Resident Evil: Revelations. With brand new territory (both the console and setting) for the series, the burning question is: how does the zombie-slaying handle on Nintendo’s latest handheld? Does it perform graphically? Do the controls translate well to a portable console? And is the story as unintentionally hilarious as Resident Evil tends to be?
Conclusion: Het maakt niet uit waar je roots liggen: Resident Evil Revelations biedt vermaak voor zowel oude als nieuwe fans. Ja, het speelt en ziet eruit als één van de nieuwere titels, maar neem even de tijd en het wordt al snel duidelijk dat Capcom op bepaalde gebieden heeft gekeken naar hun oudere avonturen. Vooral de gedeeltes op de Queen Zenobia zijn uitstekend te noemen en doen bij vlagen denken aan de oude dwaaltochten in mysterieuze landhuizen.
Pros: Mix tussen oud en nieuw, Toffe singleplayer, Raid Mode
Cons: Paar mindere hoofdstukken, Zwakke dialogen, De Ooze zijn een beetje saai
