For these unaware, Resident Evil Revelations initially arrived again in 2012 on the Nintendo 3DS, then made the leap to PlayStation three. Now, as a part of the 20th anniversary celebration of the sequence, it has obtained a high-definition replace and arrived on PlayStation four. How will it really feel on the present era?


The sport begins with Jill Valentine, former S.T.A.R.S. member, and her new associate heading to a spooky deserted cruise ship often called the Queen Zenobia looking for lacking agent, Chris Redfield. They quickly uncover that not all is because it appears, and a story involving terrorist group Veltro begins to unravel.

The story isn’t merely restricted to Jill and her associate, nonetheless. With out spoiling an excessive amount of, you’ll play within the position of Chris Redfield in addition to some new characters, all of which tie collectively fairly properly in the long run.

The story is probably going one you’d anticipate from a Resident Evil title, and performs with some outdated concepts in addition to new to make an fascinating run.


Upon arriving on the Queen Zenobia, the ambiance instantly turns into considerably creepy. Diving proper into the toughest problem, you really want to have the ability to preserve ammo and dodge your foes, a minimum of in the start. It does change into simpler as you achieve entry to extra ammunition and the Genesis system, however there have been nonetheless a number of occasions I obtained too carried away with making an attempt to kill the whole lot attacking me and paid the worth.

The aforementioned Genesis system has all the time been an fascinating one in my view. You possibly can put it to use to have a look at your environment and find hidden gadgets, for one. One other extraordinarily helpful means is to scan your enemies, and, upon reaching 100%, achieve a therapeutic merchandise. You achieve extra share as you scan foes in additional harmful conditions, corresponding to one about to claw your face off, however it additionally decreases as you scan the creatures extra typically, making it much less helpful in a few of the later areas, though the additional therapeutic, even when it might probably take some time, can nonetheless be fairly a lifesaver in the event you dive in as I did.

On the word of enemies, you received’t see the normal zombies, as you possible anticipate to not by this time, because the T-Abyss Virus has mutated the hosts into a brand new kind of creature often called Ooze. These beasts may be fairly fast, extra aggressive, and have quite a lot of assaults, relying on the sort; Some can fireplace off projectiles, and a pair even have one-hit kill assaults if you’re too careless. That stated, you do have the power to maneuver and shoot concurrently, which might tremendously assist even the percentages. There are additionally some extra basic enemies to tackle, corresponding to mutated canines and the Hunters.

Truthfully, the sport struck fairly a pleasant stability between mixing outdated and new, and this stability stays immediately. The bogus intelligence can be respectable by way of truly serving to you, not like many have complained in prior titles with companions.

A brand new version is none aside from the Raid Mode, which was additionally within the recreation’s sequel, Resident Evil Revelations 2 Gamers who’ve gone by The Mercenaries in prior titles will really feel at residence as they progress by numerous levels with a number of characters and quite a lot of weapon configurations. If you add within the further characters and equipment content material, this mode can suck up fairly a little bit of your time, maybe far more than the primary recreation itself.

Graphics and Sound

Some have complained that the graphics are less than the PS4’s customary, though the body fee continues to be fairly easy. That stated, it must be remembered that the sport started as a title for the Nintendo 3DS, and, with that in thoughts, it truthfully seems and sounds fairly good even immediately. There are occasional spots that appear off, however the work is certainly evident within the recreation, and may be appreciated.

Closing ideas

In case you haven’t performed the title but, and even in the event you had been interested in one other run, Resident Evil Revelations on the PlayStation four supplies fairly a little bit of enjoyable. Those that aren’t within the Raid mode or downloadable content material could also be extra content material to play the title on the PlayStation three, however the further content material does make it value a run on PlayStation four as properly, in the event you loved the mode within the sequel.

Closing Rating: four.25/5
