Resident Evil: Revelations
Let me start off by saying Resident Evil purists probably won’t like this game. The franchise has definitely stepped away from its roots as a horrifying game to a commercial action-adventure machine leaving two types of fans in its wake; the old school Raccoon City fan and the movie franchise fan. R.E. Revelations is an attempt to appease both types of diehard R.E. fans while luring in some newbies.
This game actually makes the Nintendo 3DS worth playing. You may even forget from time to time that you are on a handheld device. The game simply pulls you in and action keeps you there. While the storyline leaves much to be desired, the impromptu monster melees won’t leave you with much time to devote to script analysis.
Normally, the words survival and horror don’t bear well for the players but this game will have you on edge. You can switch from first-person to third-person shooter at a moments whim during the game (I’d recommend first-person for creepiest effect). The Queen Zenobia Cruise Line will be a great place for you to get to know the Ooze, Revelations replacements for zombies, which will undoubtedly pop up and scare the crap out of you from time to time.
Fast gameplay, lots of ammo (at times), and sheer fanaticism make R.E. Revelations worth a go’ round.
