"After the lacklustre reception of Resident Evil 6 and Raccoon City - both of which I actually enjoyed - there were high hopes for Revelations, an HD remake of last year's 3DS game.
Not only were these games heaped with scorn but they divided fans of the series and highlighted just how far removed they were from the cult PlayStation original and unsurpassed Resident Evil 4. Neither felt like a true Resi game - for all the graphical improvements, control tweaks and new characters, locations and game modes, they left the majority of the gaming public cold. Fortunately, Capcom was listening and the new Revelations is not rotten like the undead that star in it. Far from it. This is arguably the best instalment for years."
