When I first approached Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I was fairly cautious. I had been burned many times by Resident Evil games in the past, but having played through Episode 1 and 2, most of my concerns were alleviated.
At this point, I think I can heartily recommend Revelations 2 as a whole, even if Episode 3 drags momentarily.
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.
The Resident Evil series continues with Episode 3 of the Revelation 2 story with the story unravelling around the Overseer.
