Resident Evil Revelations Review
Author: Jeff McAllister
In recent years, the Resident Evil games have been slowly descending into a festering pit of mediocrity. The once true survival-horror series has practically changed genres over the years, becoming full on action titles and doing away with any tension and suspense the series was known for. It’s not a change that anyone wanted to see and fans were hoping to someday see the series return to its hair-raising, spine-tingling, spook-fests that the original games had been so many years ago.
Resident Evil Revelations was released to high-acclaim last year on the handheld Nintendo 3DS, although the system’s layout prevented decent controls without the add-on circle pad; the game was an actual survival-horror game that brought the series, at least partially, back to its roots. Now a year later and nearly 6 months after the craptacular Resident Evil 6, Revelations is finally getting the full screen treatment with upgraded visuals for its release on the Wii U, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
