4.0 out of 5 stars Beware the Raid Mode!
The main game (Campaign Mode) is a fine return to form for the series. It plays like the earlier games and that is no bad thing. It's a little on the short side and it's not without its flaws, hence the four-star rating.

It is the Raid Mode, however, that is the real star of this show. Beware the Raid Mode because it will consume your every waking hour - it is...

First things first, people looking for a complete return to the style of the original trilogy, it aint gunna happen. Those games are one of a kind and nothing will ever top them. That being said, this has been called the closest resi in recent memory to contain survival horror elements. For the most part, it dosent. The game starts off well enough, exploring an abandoned...

4.0 out of 5 stars What Resident Evil 6 Should've Been., 26 May 2013

= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Resident Evil Revelations (PS3) (Video Game)
The annoying aspect of this game is that it was released on a handheld console first making it a port to the PS3/360/PC.

This is what Resident Evil 6 should've been like.

Gameplay - It's very well done, over the shoulder view but not hard to get used to and its very smooth. No real issues.

Controls - Near perfected for the series, being able to shoot and walk either forward or backward is so helpful and less irritating!

Graphics - Beautiful crisp HD graphics, coupled with the atmosphere it makes a really pretty game! Not forgetting this is a port they have really done well.

Story - I'm not going to lie, it isn't the best but I'm glad to be playing as Jill Valentine again, the other characters don't have much development however.

Sound - The atmosphere is spot on, excellent music and sounds make the survival horror element stand out in this game.

In short I have to say I really did enjoy this more than RE6, it has more of a survival horror element which in my opinion RE6 severely lacked!

Would have been 5* if it was originally intended to be a console game in the first place!

For fans of resident evil 1 and 2 buy this game and relive all the happy memories. This game is designed for the old school fans and plays brilliantly. You will love it if your fans of the original games. If you like the newer games in the series you probably won't like it as much.

The makers realised after the success of this game that there is a huge market for the old school horror genre and as such are apparently making a new game for this market.

This review is from: Resident Evil Revelations (PS3) (Video Game)
It is quite typical for Nintendo to get one or two games that completely fly in the face of their standard cheery output. Nothing wrong with cheery, of course, but Resident Evil: Revelations stands out like a decaying thumb on the 3DS when surrounded by the all too predictable Mario remakes, rehashes and cash-ins. Indeed, when I owned a 3DS Resident Evil: Revelations was one of the very few reasons I had for owning one. So, when I sold said hand-held, I did so with sadness, thinking I might never get to see the rest of this excellent title, having only played the first few hours. I wouldn't miss Mario, Luigi, Link or anyone else, but Resident Evil I would. Happily, RE is back where it belongs - on grown up consoles with an audience who actually deserve some old skool Resident Evil. Yes, deserve, because it waas they who made RE a success in the first place.

Like many others, the huge numbers of whom Capcom are seemingly oblivious, I sorely miss the days of the first three Resident Evils on the Playstation, and Code Veronica on Dreamcast. And what the hell had Nintendo or their entourage of cuteness enthusiasts ever done to deserve Remake and RE Zero on the Gamecube? It was, and is, plain wrong. Then the years began to roll by and RE got progressively less and less like RE and more and more like Die Hard with monsters. Capcom increasingly lost their way. RE4 was good, but not Resident Evil. RE5 was okay, but not Resident Evil. RE6... you get the picture. In RE6 Leon Kennedy is back! Err... but that's not Leon, it's just some guy with the same name. The real Leon, like Jill, Chris and Claire, prowls and hobbles around the barren corridors and deserted streets of Raccoon City, popping off shots against slowly lumbering zombies and associated monstrosities. What he and his allies don't do is fly kick mutations in the face while delivering snappy one-liners.

But now we have a safe refuge away from all of that inappropriate brashness and trashiness. Once more we can amble down hallways listening out for telltale signs of the undead, while a creepy ambient soundtrack ramps up the foreboding. And it's not on a tiny screen with your face reflecting back at you, either. Will Capcom take any notice of how glad we are to have OUR Resident Evil back, or will RE7 continue to be just another average action game with monsters in? Sadly, I predict the latter. Still, we will have this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Abyss-mal., 6 Mar 2014
This review is from: Resident Evil Revelations (PS3) (Video Game)
When I heard that Resident Evil Revelations took the series back to its survival horror roots,I was somewhat cautious, but looking forward to see just how they managed to do this. In short; they didn't!

If you have played the games 4, 5, and 6, then by now you know the score. You take control of an essentially super human military trained killing machine with more than enough guns and ammunition to comfortably see you through such circumstances for at least the next few years. The game is littered with characters you couldn't care less about, and that includes the likes of Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield. I found myself hoping that, just to mix things up, they would kill off one of the series long running protagonists. How about it Chris?.... Jill?..... Would somebody else like to offer?

Nothing in this games takes it back to the "survival horror" roots they claim it to. Occasionally you may see a room that somewhat resembles, or gives a nod to something of the mansions interior from the original Resident Evil. You may get a key with an etching, or emblem on it, and have to track back for 5minutes to get to that specific door. But other than that, it's just the same old tired formula from the recent entries to the series. Even the creature design is lackluster at best.

To really take this series back to its survival horror roots, they need to start afresh. Scrap the BSAA storylines, government agents, and the current character set list. Even if it's just for one game. How about taking control of just a regular guy or woman for a change and not some super soldier government official? Bring guns and ammunition down to a bare minimum and bring in some up-close, heavy handed, melee combat. And no, I do not mean slashing wildly with a knife like you already can do. How about less frequent, but much tougher, smarter enemies? A room full of staggering, slow, enemies you have seen a million times does not create a tense atmosphere! Especially when you can stand 20meters away and headshot every single one of them without any danger.

I gave it 3 stars for fun because it's better than 5 and 6, plus Raid Mode is more fun than the main game. But that's not saying much at all. Overall it gets a 2 out of 5 from me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Resident Evil All At Sea, 7 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Resident Evil Revelations (PS3) (Video Game)
Resident Evil Revelations is one of the smaller titles to come out between the main players in the Resident Evil canon. As such very little was expected of it, but it does manage to capture something of the exploratory haunted house feel of the early Resident Evil games. Some of the more recent games have been more like Call of Duty than survival horror but here you are back to the old formula of low ammunition, deadly monsters and frustrating puzzles.

There are two parts to the game where you play Jill Valentine in one, and Chris Redfield in another. Jill's section is by far the more interesting as she explores a large cruise ship adrift in the middle of the ocean. This is very atmospheric and an original setting for a horror game. Chris's story on the other hand seems to be mainly filler, and I found myself plodding through it eager to get back to the ship. There are also occasional side plots where you play other characters, filling in the back story.

As with other Resident Evil games there is the potential to play split screen, online or locally and the game provides a decent length of gameplay, especially for a spin off title. It's far from the classic that the early Resident Evil titles were but at the same time its not the disaster the last one was. Worth checking out if you are a fan of the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best resident Evil since 4/cv, 27 May 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Resident Evil Revelations (PS3) (Video Game)
Ive read and heard alot of people complaining about how slow this game is...(news flash)...the game is suppost to be slow to add atmosphere, its not over the top like res 5-6 were, imo this is the best res game since res 4 cos its back the the old ways of finding keys and running around solving puzzles etc and backtracking.

Dont go by the demo as its only the 3rd mission and its pretty short, and for the love of god! dont go by reviews, IGN gave this a 6.5 but yet they gave the 3ds version an 8.5??? but yet they complained about stuff that was in the 3ds version? isnt it the same game? (confusing)

id say if you are a resident evil fan and want to experience the thrills and fun you had when you played 0-4/cv then pick this up and you wont be disappointed.
