RE: Revelations; A frustrating, but surprising gem

I thoroughly enjoyed playing this 3DS- only port containg events between Resident Evil 4 & 5. Now here's the good, the bad and the ugly of this game:

THE GOOD: This is easily the best looking game on the 3ds. it takes the atmosphere of a good console resident evil title and makes it portable. the enemies are as scary as ever and the character models are nothing to scoff at. This game will give you a good jump here and there, just as you should come to expect with this kind of title.

THE BAD: This game doesn't have any real glitches (besides the occasional lag), so there's nothing really to complain about here. one major thing is that the controls on this game SUCK if you dont have circle pad pro. this really took me out of the game and created some really difficult moments when trying to kill a larger zombie. add this to a subpar storyline and you have yourself a problematic experience.

THE UGLY: Two words: boss fights. the bigger and more difficult monsters in the game are hideous. but not in a bad way, in a good way. The visuals in this game are so beautiful for the 3ds that the monsters are abslutely disgusting.

Overall, i would give this game 7.75 out of 10 because although it did have its good moments, there were a few big problems that took away from an otherwise very enjoyable experience. this game is worth a play if you are looking for a good game to waste time on for a long car ride, or if you are a fan of resident evil or survival horror in general. this game is a definite rent for most 3ds owners, but dont buy it unless you are a hardcore fan.

The Good

Graphically speaking this game is not the best Resident Evil ever. The 3DS is certainly not the Xbox or the Playstation, but you won't get this story on either of those systems either.
There was a lot of hype around this game when it was announced. This left a lot to be expected when the game finally came out, but the weapons, graphics, sound quality, story-line, and other features meet those expectations head on. It is difficult to review the game without giving away too much.

The Bad

There is not a lot bad about this game, though the controls will certainly throw some off, unless they have played Resident Evil 4 for Wii. Firing is a two button process. First to aim and then to shoot. The challenge may prove too much for some (they'll call it bad controls, I'll call it sucking at adapting).

The Ugly

There are also several points at which the enemies become somewhat repetitive, enemies fall through things instead of over them, and online play is not the best (comprised mostly of running straight through a level killing generic enemies with basic weaponry and a partner... with multiple people, online could have been made more complex/better in general). None of this really takes away from the game too much. It is a solid 9.

This game take place before RE5 and goes into the early careers of Jill & Chris in the BSAA.The game also follow other BSAA agents. With this said you will be moving around a lot as you play other characters. Moving you from a ship all the way to some snowy mountains and into the past to get some backstory on the characters and events.Sadly the story in this game is not that great.

The Controls are good and not much have change since the The Mercenaries game. You no longer have to put your gun away now you can equip a knife or grenade and just them by hitting X.

The Gameplay really goes back to series old roots. Sometimes it just best to run because a boss fight can happen anywhere and any enemy can and will come after you.Also it's up to you to find new guns most of the times.They do bring back the power to upgrade your guns.Touch screen will be used in puzzles and inventory management.

Raid Mode:Is this year mercenaries mode and it a mode that I hope to see in RE6. The raid mode have over 21 levels that you can play offline and co-op. During these level you will unlock,earn,buy new weapons. The weapons will be godlike and so will the enemies that you encounter.Due to fact that just get stronger and stronger as you play and you play on a higher difficultly.

Overall This is a amazing game it all the good things from the series put into the one game.
