RE: Revelations 2‘s second episode offers some more engaging set-pieces, horror, and high tension, but ultimately feels short-lived thanks to its episodic structure. As always, the graphics are sub-par, but gameplay does make up for this short-coming.
New Gamer Nation:
The Resident Evil series will be celebrating its twentieth birthday in a few months.
Twenty years. They grow up so quickly don’t they? It’s just a shame that they all can’t grow up to what we always want them to be and in Resident Evil’s case, that turned out to be a rather misbehaving child.
1996. It seems an absolute eternity ago when Resident Evil was first released by Capcom on the original PlayStation platform and every single one of us has distinct memories from that game. The eerie mansion, the first sight of that zombie with the intense cut-scene and the very clever plot which was forever unfolding. It defined the survival horror genre. Not only did it give gamers across the globe genuine frights, things only got better and more frightening, when nearly two years later Capcom brought us Resident Evil 2. Some argue (and I too agree) this was by far the best game of the entire series. There was some genuine thought as far as the story was concerned with this release and without spoiling the story for those who haven’t played it (yes, there are still some people out there!) the plot twists and gripping narrative certainly made this game one to remember. But again, it left us with memorable scenes and characters, such as the Police station, the laboratory and people like Ada.
Resident Evil Revelations 2 is an all around solid and engaging game that caters to both new and old fans of the series with an incredible storyline and favorable interface.
