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 .
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.
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

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.
Review: Resident Evil: Revelations (Sony Playstation 3)
28 May 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.
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
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.
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
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.
