Resident Evil: Revelations
2 September 2013
Summary: While Resident Evil 4 is considered one of the best made games of all time, shifting the series from survival horror to combat-focused action left some fans with a vast, empty chasm in their hearts. The modern Resident Evil is tense, fast-paced, and exhilarating, but it's not horror . Resident Evil: Revelations is not a committed return to the survival roots of Capcom's PlayStation titles.
Summary: Resident Evil Revelations was a great action horror title. So good, it absolutely humiliated Resident Evil 6 by being superior in every single way -- a fact made especially delicious considering it was a 3DS game in contrast with its big-budget console counterpart. Capcom, ever ready to exploit an opportunity for a port, seems to recognize that Revelations was the better game and is hoping to pump some more cash out of the project by bringing it to home consoles.
Summary: Revelations gives you an eerie environment. It gives you morbid creatures. It limits your supply. But it doesn't amount to anything. It just is. And when a game is nothing but the sum of its segmented parts, it buckles under its lack of stability.
Pros: Classic RE-style environmental isolation
Cons: Those environments don't amount to anything horrific
Review: Resident Evil: Revelations (Sony Playstation 3)
2 June 2013
Summary: : The console release of Resident Evil: Revelations does a good job of converting the game to the consoles, offering more content and a generally well adapted transfer, though for those who’ve played the original, how interested you’ll be depends on what brings you to the dance in the first place. The story is your standard over the top but enjoyable franchise fare, and the game generally looks acceptable (if not amazing) and sounds excellent on the console port.

Conclusion: This game certainly isn’t the best Resident Evil game so far, but it is considerably better than most of the recent ones being released. Anyone who is a Resident Evil fan might want to check out this HD port and get eight hours of story, plus the Raid mode. It shows what Resident Evil is capable of, and what could have been with the other recent console titles. That doesn’t mean it’s perfect, however.
Conclusion: Perhaps not quite worth full retail value, Revelations is a good step forward for the series. Strongly recommended as a rental at the very least, especially if you haven’t experienced it on the 3DS.
Pros: Finally, a real Resident Evil, Good mix of action and survival horror
Cons: Raid mode a bit weak, Characters are cartoonish
Excerpt: Like the grotesque monstrosities that menace players of the series, Resident Evil is continually mutating. Spin-offs burst from its body like new appendages, and the series as a whole has adapted in an attempt to capture more players. As the series flung its tentacles toward fans of action games with Resident Evil 5 and 6, Revelations sprouted like a second head on the 3DS.
Excerpt: Resident Evil underwent a transformation in 2005 with the release of Resident Evil 4 for GameCube. Gone were the stiff controls of the PlayStation era, in was an over-the-shoulder camera. The franchise moved away from cheap thrills to more of an action-oriented game.
