Resident Evil Revelations Review
In Resident Evil Revelations you mainly play as Jill Valentine, Resident Evil’s poster girl lol. I say mainly because throughout the game you also play as other people of lesser importance that no one has ever seen in the series until now, well besides Chris that is lol.
The setting of the game is mostly on the Queen Zenobia, a ship that has been dead in the water for quite a while. This setting works very well because it give the sense and feel that you have no where to go because there is nothing but endless sea in all directions. The controls in the game are exactly the same as in previous games so they are easy to get a hold of, and you have the option of changing the control style in the options menu if you like. Your A.I. partner handles very well this time around too. No more game overs every two seconds because your A.I. partner can’t get their act together lol. In Resident Evil Revelations THERE IS NO CO-OP FOR CAMPAIGN MODE, however this does not make the game any less enjoyable at all. Sorry for the caps, but I had to clarify that in case some were wondering. RAID MODE is available for those who want to play with others online. While in Raid Mode you play the same levels as in the Campaign, but there is no story progression. This is why I mentioned the A.I. partner being very good, because throughout the game they will be one you will be with the whole time.
Now I bet you’re wondering if I actually liked the game or not, and that answer is yes. There is only one gripe I have with the game, and that is the dodge system. In Revelations the only time you can dodge is when enemies are in mid attack. You might be thinking that this sounds legit, but it’s not. Trust me lol. Dodging is performed by pressing either up or down on the left control stick and the X button (PS3). This simple button combination can mean the difference between life and death. While ironically I didn’t die that much in the game, I’ve already established that I suck at dodging in it lol.
Overall if you’re ok with there being no Campaign co-op, then give the game a go. I actually liked Revelations a little more that RE6, and hope they continue to make future Resident Evil games like this one. Except for without the dodge system that is. AzureNova gives Resident Evil Revelations a 4 out of 5 because I suck at dodging lol.
