Excerpt: Resident Evil: Revelations for home consoles is a remastered version of last year’s 3DS game which made a valiant effort to reconnect with the series’ survival horror roots by including features such as limited ammo, dimly lit corridors and shambling enemies.

Excerpt: It’s funny how over its past few installments the Resident Evil franchise has gotten more love for its spin-offs than for its main installments. When it originally released on the Nintendo 3DS in early 2012, Resident Evil: Revelations was heralded as a breath of fresh air for the series by moving away from the co-op action-fest from recent memory and back to its roots as a survival horror game, and for the most part it did quite well.
Summary: It has been a dark time for the Resident Evil series. The abominably disappointing Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City and Resident Evil 6 utterly lacked the nail-biting action the series was once known for, making it impossible to see in them any glimmer of the franchise's former greatness. So in a sense, the release of Resident Evil: Revelations on consoles and PC is cause for celebration.
Pros: Both your weapons and your enemies feel powerful, The Queen Zenobia is an intriguing location, Episodic structure keeps the pace brisk
Cons: Not scary, Most enemies are uninteresting, Too much backtracking
Conclusion: I was ready to give up on the Resident Evil series but Revelations gives me a lot of hope that Capcom still knows what they’re doing. Moody, suspenseful and elegant, Revelations does away with the extraneous complexity of other recent Resident Evil games and gets back to the basics of survival horror. It’s amazing this experience fit on the 3DS last year, and now it’s available in full HD. Don’t miss it.

Excerpt: Hvis du fra starten konkluderer, at Resident Evil-serien på det seneste selv har stavret rundt som en af dens virusbefængte zombier, har du nok ikke overdrevet. Efter at spillene over en længere periode har befæstet deres position som hjørnesten indenfor survival horror-genren, har de i de senere år vist en tiltagende usikkerhed på egne evner. Det blev bedst udtrykt med , hvor skizofrenien virkeligt poppede sit hoved frem.
Pros: Virkelig god stemning, Spændende, Til tider skræmmende
