This is one of the best RE games since 4!RetroHellspawn | Aug. 23, 2013 | Review of Resident Evil: Revelations
Resident Evil has started going more down the action road than the horror road, which is not how most fans prefer the game to be. In my opinion, the only bad Resident Evil is Operation Raccoon City, but I haven't played it since they updated it as I got really pissed and sold it to buy RE6, which I honestly approved of. I digress, Resident Evil: Revelations is a great game with great gameplay, calling back to the older not-so-linear roots with actual puzzles (however easy they may be), and actually having somewhat foreboding atmosphere. To be honest, the game hasn't scared me, but that's because I'm well rounded as far as horror goes. The only games that actually scare me these days are Amnesia, the Penumbra series, and Cry of Fear. (I know, they're "overrated", but they still scare me to the point that I don't even play them much so I don't feel that paralyzing fear.) Though the game doesn't have much in the sense of scare factor, it definitely pulls off a good atmosphere, one that I enjoy much more than Resident Evil 5. The only flaws I can think of that this game has are that some of the character design is... Weird. The female characters in the game all look like they're modeled after the Kardashians (I honestly have no clue how to spell that, nor do I care enough to look it up) or some other slutty "celebrity." That and the graphics aren't quite up to the current Resident Evil standards as far as visuals go. Resident Evil 5 was great for the time, and 6 was absolutely stunning, but this was somewhere between. I know this review is a bit of a rambling mess, but I didn't really think this through that well. Either way, this game is great, and CAPCOM deserves your money for it.
