With Resident Evil Revelations, the famous franchise returns to Survival Horror territory. The story is simple. The BSAA has lost contact with Chris Redfield and his partner Jessica Sherawat but their beacon indicates that their actual location is in the middle of the ocean. It’s soon clear that both agents are captive aboard the Queen Zenobia, a huge commercial ship which disappeared a few days ago. Jill Valentine and Parker Luciano are sent there to investigate and rescue their comrade. Revelations is a synthesis of what was good in the old Resident Evil games and in the new ones. The controls are inspired by Resident Evil 5 but improved. This makes the game easy to pick up while it still feels like Resident Evil.
The structure of the game is similar to the one used in the old games. While you have a clear objective indicated on your map, you’re still free to explore the ship as long as you have the key necessary to open each door. Exploration is the key to survival here, for this is your best opportunity to scavenge ammunitions and green herbs. During some chapters, you are to control other pairs of characters for more action oriented sequences that offer a good change of pace. The bestiary offers a good variety of enemies too.
The story is also a huge improvement from Resident Evil 4 and 5, thanks to manga writer Dai Sato’s efforts.
The games looks superb for a Nintendo 3DS port and the soundtrack is my favorite in the franchise.
Resident Evil is back from the Dead.

After the disappointment of Resident Evil 5 and 6, Resident Evil Revelations is a welcome entry, reminding people who play it why Resident Evil was good to begin with.
Resident Evil Revelations ditches the action oriented combat that the series adopted in previous titles and goes for a slower, more survival horror oriented combat. Ammo is limited, enemies are vulnerable to headshots, and so on. The story is standard Resident Evil fare, but this time there is a sense of isolation and claustrophobia similar to the original game. A new feature to the game is the ability to scan enemies and objects. The only real reward for doing this is getting herbs whenever you reach 100% with a scan, which can be good or bad depending on whether or not you are looking for a true survival horror feel similar to earlier Resident Evil titles, but it is completely optional.
Resident Evil Revelations is a breath of fresh air and shows that a good, or at least decent survival horror game can be made if developers are willing to actually make one.
A welcome returnJaded_Alyx | Feb. 19, 2015 | See all Jaded_Alyx's reviews »
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.
