Revelations 2 can most likely be considered the swan song of the Resi 4-esque games of the series, with Resident Evil 7 being shown as what appears to be an attempt at putting a foot into the door of the already overcrowded first person indie horror games that infests Steam as so many other PC marketplaces, but as a final battlecry before giving up and copying what everyone else is doing, Revelations 2 takes the best of all the Resi games since 4 and slaps them all together into a rather enjoyable experience.
Resident Evil Revelations 2 gives a slightly slower and more atmospheric game than Resident Evil 6 gave us but the setting and enemies don't really feel interesting or like anything new. The different chapters have you playing as Claire and Moira, Barry's daughter, or Barry and a little girl that he meets. Unlike the previous Revelation title, this one adds co-op and has you followed by another character, unlike RE5 and RE6 you can switch between characters and only one of the two in each group is really meant for combat. While I think it is missing some of the atmosphere, entertaining B movie writing style of RE4 and the older ones, and a interesting new setting and enemies the game is still enjoyable and much better made than the recent RE 6. If you have a friend to play with it should be even more enjoyable. The Raid mode fell short of the previous fun mercenaries mode as it lacks the more hard hitting attacks, it feels like a grind with oddly made microtransaction style gameplay, and enemies getting higher levels rather than just being fun to fight like in previous games. The Deluxe Edition also includes some bonus chapters where you see another part of the story as Moira and another with the girl Barry is with, these are good editions although the one with the young girl is more of a departure from how the rest of the game plays.
I liked this game a lot, but enjoyed the previous Revelations more. There are no scares to be had in this game, just a lot of action. The story mode has 4 playable characters and is fun, but Raid mode is where you will spend the most time. The DLC levels were also pretty decent. The story mode has 2 challenges that unlock after you beat each level. One is time trial, where you have to get through the level before time runs out. You gain extra time for killing enemies. The other mode I didn't like at all. This game has a few invisible enemies here and there. This second mode makes every enemy invisible. You can only gauge where they are based on sound. It's very annoying. The level variety is pretty decent, but everything is very dark, like in most horror games, so you can't really enjoy the surroundings. It doesn't follow the story of the previous Revelations game, so you can play either or both. The first one was a little brighter and I enjoyed exploring the cruise ship much more than the drab buildings in this game. There's some really great action segments in this game, but I just wish it had some scares. Resident Evil is turning too action packed and just isn't anywhere near as scary as it used to be. There's also far too much ammo laying around so the games just don't have tension anymore as you can waste ammo and never feel like you are going to run out.
Resident Evil Revelations 2 is, like Resident Evil Revelations before it, a return to form for Resident Evil. It feels a lot like Resident Evil 4 given its over-the-shoulder perspective, but it also feels like Resident Evil 5/6 since you have an AI partner, except this time you can actually switch between the characters, and you have more than one team, and each team feels different, as one team has one character hold the flashlight and the other hold the guns, while the other team has on character hold both the flashlight and guns while the other character can see enemies behind walls. Given the setting and enemies, it all feels like a return to classic Resident Evil scares. Almost anyway. The enemy, settings, etc. however are a bit uninspired, too reminiscent of The Evil Within. The same goes with the villains, as they seem to retread the same grounds that previous villains have. Evil organization? Check. Ouroboros? Check. Big bad trying to make themselves a living god? All the checks. Resident Evil Revelations 2 is a very good game, far more deserving of the Resident Evil title than Resident Evil 5 or 6. Hopefully there will be tweaks made to Resident Evil Revelations 3 (if it is ever made) to finally make a true return to Resident Evil.
Claire Redfield and Moira Burton have been kidnapped by a mysterious group and brought to an isolated island. There, they discover that that mutants are roaming around the place and killing every human they found. On the other side of this story, we follow Barry Burton, Moira's dad and support character of the original Resident Evil. He's here to rescue his girl and just happened to meet Natalia, a kid with the power to "sense" the mutants around her. Resident Evil Revelations 2 has an episodic format so the adventure is far more linear than it was in the previous entry. However the game still has a lot of exploration to offer (The factory in episode 3 has a particularly good level design). The story is pretty good (In Resident Evil standards) and there are a few nice surprise that will please the fans. The big feature of this game is the return of the Partner Zapping mechanic that was first introduced in Resident Evil Zero. You control two characters at the same time, switching between them at any time. Each one of them has its own specialty (Barry and Claire are here for the shooting while Natalia and Moira can find hidden items and finish off knock down opponents). Making a good use of each one's abilities is the key to progress. Raid Mode is also available. It works just like before and is just as addictive. The two story DLC are also interesting to play. Moira's one is pretty challenging too. The game has a very good atmosphere but players should be aware that this entry was made using a lower budget than Resident Evil 5 or 6. The presentation is serviceable but nothing much. It's not a big deal, though. However, the game's real weak spot is its mutants. Compared to other Resident Evil games, Revelations 2 feels lazy in this matter. Resident Evil Revelations was an very good game marking the franchise's return to its horror roots. Revelations 2 continues on this path and while it has a few weakness (Monster design and the episodic format) it's still a great survival horror game.
