Resident Evil: Revelations Review (PC)
20 June 2013
Conclusion: Resident Evil: Revelations is a pretty good game in terms of pure gameplay, although quite a few glitches and issues weigh it down. Even so, the entry is by far the most survival horror one the franchise has seen in recent years, and the Raid mode should entertain fans. In terms of the HD remake, the results aren't that pretty, due to low-quality textures, especially on the PC, and due to some very simple mechanics or effects.
Pros: +Good survival horror experience, +Episodic plot keeps things fresh, +Reminiscent of classic Resident Evil games
Cons: -Low-quality graphics and textures, -Quite a few bugs, -Confusing environments
Conclusion: Revelations also boasts a co-op mode, though I didn’t have nearly as much fun with it as I did the main story. In what I consider a good choice, Capcom kept co-op out of the main story. Though much of the campaign is spent with an AI partner at your side, co-op is a separate mode in which small chunks of the campaign are taken out to be cleared.
Pros: A welcome return to survival-horror. A great setting. Sleek controls and interface.
Cons: Action-heavy segments feel out of place. Co-op underwhelms. Occasionally terrible textures.
Excerpt: I'm on a boat. Okay, so Resident Evil 6 failed to live up to expectations. Throwing the kitchen sink at players and tallying up not three, but four complete RE campaigns didn't capture survival-horror as effectively as we might have hoped. Despite existing in the medium for over 15 years, Capcom's zombie franchise has seen its fair share of diminishing returns. Still, sometimes all you need is a brief vacation to get back into the swing of things.
Excerpt: Resident Evil Revelations shocked the world when it was released last year for the Nintendo 3DS for all the right reasons. The game set the standard for what a high quality title could look like on the Nintendo 3DS with incredibly detailed graphics and superb lighting that created some of the most chilling settings in a Resident Evil game to date while showing off the power of the handheld platform.
Excerpt: Resident Evil Revelations was first released last year for the 3DS. For a handheld RE, it was quite impressive from a graphical standpoint and the game gave us back the more horrific atmosphere that was present in older RE titles. You can read my review for the 3DS version of Revelations here on The Gamers' Temple if you want to see all that I had to say about the 3DS version since this review focuses mainly on the additions in the new console version.
Conclusion: I would recommend double dipping on this HD version of Resident Evil Revelations. It was a great game on the 3DS and is even better in HD with a proper controller. This game still puts Resident Evil 6 to shame. If you didn’t get to try the original on 3DS then i’d definitely recommending running out to pick up a copy.
Excerpt: И так неважно стартовавшая 3DS от Nintendo к моменту релиза своего основного конкурента — PS Vita от Sony — растеряла все преимущества. Основная причина — малое количество эксклюзивов (а те, что были в наличии, не раскрывали всех возможностей свежей портативной консоли), ради возможности увидеть которые потенциальные покупатели могли бы перестать быть потенциальными.
