New weapons, skill sets, and playable characters including Hunk, take the Raid Mode experience to new depths.
The critically acclaimed survival horror title takes players back to the events that took place between Resident Evil® 4 and Resident Evil® 5, revealing the truth about the T-Abyss virus. Resident Evil Revelations features series favorites Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, plus their respective BSAA partners - Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat.

For many people, Resident Evil 5 just was scary enough. Others complained that it had too much action. Yet more said the game relied too much on co-op play, thereby negatively affecting the single player mode.
As if taking these concerns to heart, Capcom went and made Resident Evil: Revelations, touted as a return to 'survival horror'. They may not quite have succeeded on that goal, but this is a damn fine Resident Evil game. A single player campaign actually meant to be played solo, creepy settings, and just the right amount of ammo to have you worrying about conservation.
It's just all such a shame that so much good work was undone by Resident Evil 6...
A Different REmikenotcaptain | Feb. 17, 2015 | See all mikenotcaptain's reviews »
Resident Evil Revelations is the first RE that I have played since RE4. I played the original remake for the gamecube as well. In comparison to those this game falls a bit short...but not too short. This game is indeed fun. The gameplay is super fun and it has that creepy feel that RE is so well known for.
The storyline is solid but the dialogue in the game is as good as a low budget horror film. It takes a bit away from the game but you get used to it.
The enemies are definitely creepy but I prefer the human based zombies compared to undead fish and goop. The graphics are decent but could are sub par compared to other current games.I just started playing the Raid mode and it is super fun. It is almost more fun than the story mode.
This game has a lot going for it in terms of gameplay and setting. There are just some aspects to the game that make it less than what it could have been. I would still recommend this game to any RE fan.

I felt Resident Evil Redemption went back to the roots of a survival horror more so than any other. Ammo was scarce in some parts, and the enemies added enough of a creepy feel to keep you on your seat the whole time. A great purchase and if your a fan of the series, you'll love this as well.

Honestly, I was losing faith in the Resident Evil franchise before this game came out. What began as a survival horror game that helped define the genre hid behind its guns and devolved into a survival action game. While this isn't necessarily a bad thing, it detracted from what Resident Evil was at its very core, and this is what drew fans away from the franchise.
After trying out Revelations, I was immediately pleased. The horror was well and there, in every tight corner and shut closet. Things pop out of everywhere, grab you, and just cause a general sense of panic—be it from the almost constant terror of creatures lurking in every corner, or from the scarcity of ammo and herbs making you extra conscious of yourself.
Scanning everything is enjoyable, but terribly hard, what with danger lurking in every corner. The need to survive was there, all right. This was Resident Evil back to its survival horror roots. I kind of wish it resembled the original series more (the static camera angles made for horrifying experiences), but perhaps this is more due to nostalgia than anything.
Overall, this game restored my faith in the franchise, at the very least. Based on the other reviews for this game, I'd say that I'm not alone in this conclusion. A great step back to what made this game good in the first place. I hope they keep it up.
The game is creepy, alright!Ryukrieger | Sept. 15, 2014 | See all Ryukrieger's reviews »
This game is creepy, for sure, if you like a Resident Evil that is creepy, you've come to the right game. If RE6 isn't creepy enough for you (it's a good game, really), then Revelations would be your next pick. The game still follows the playstyle since RE4-6, which is third person, QTEs, etc... you would've already at least play one of the latest 3 main games. This game brings back all the good eeriness of the older games where you'll feel like you'll die at anytime. But here's the part, I think it's mainly due to the lack of a co-op partner, but there are other parts, for example, the atmosphere is very dark. If you bring the atmosphere of Revelations to a main RE game (keeps the Co-op, I like Co-op games with friends), I think it'd make a very good compromises. And also, puzzles, there are more than RE6 for sure, which is good, it's nice to take a break once a while from the shooting and just use a bit of your brain. This game gets a 94 from me, because no game is perfect and it's just a personal recommendation!
