Reviews for Resident Evil Revelations
A good game but held back by limits of its handheld originsCakefish | June 2, 2013 | See all Cakefish's reviews »
Revelations is a good game - no doubt. Everything that made the 3DS version so good is still here intact. Spooky atmosphere, lots of tension and suspense and frantic fights with gruesome monsters for your very survival - harking back to the origins of the series. However, unfortunately, this isn't a complete overhaul of the game engine, which is what Capcom really needed to do to give this game the justice it deserves on PC (and home consoles). The graphics, while outstanding for the 3DS are sub-par for what is expected from modern PC games - even though they admittedly have been upgraded, it isn't enough. Enemy AI is poor, which again, is a leftover constraint of the power limits of the 3DS - and there is little variety in the appearance or behaviour of monsters to fight.
A good game but lacking in some much needed upgrades to make the game truly shine on PC.
