A great addition to the WiiU library

I've been a fan of Resident Evil since almost the beginning (RE2). But lately RE5 and RE6 let me to think that the series was dying.
Resident Evil Revelations proves me wrong, it's not a complete "to the roots" game but it's much closer to one of the favorites, Resident Evil 4.
The pacing is good, mixing slow exploration and sometimes even that fear of turning a corner with some very fast sequences where you have to think/shoot fast to survive. It's a very good balance.
There are no quick time events (QTE) which I think was a smart move. There's no co-op in single, which adds a bit to the fear. The Raid mode does have a co-op (online only) and it's actually fun to play once you finish it.
The framerate is good, very solid graphics, using the gamepad to quickly change weapons, solving some puzzles and checking the map is cool. The is the first game I've been using the gamepad pro too and I have it since launch. Of-TV play is there too and it's cool when you can't use the TV.
-Games is a bit short, you can finish it in normal in like 9h-12h.
-The aiming feels a bit loose at start, you get used to it but if you play another shooter in between you'll notice it more.
-No split-screen co-op in raid mode.
-Monsters (new virus) feel a bit unoriginal
