Resident Evil revelations is a great new installment to the series. This takes Resident evil back to it's survival horror roots. As always the story of the game is fantastic. The ship that Jill and Parker are on known as the queen zenobia is incredibly Erie. This just adds more to the horror feel of the game. Also returning from the old games are limited supply's. That means limited ammunition and health items so use them sparingly. The voice overs as always are less then impressive just being really dull and not helping with the feel of the game at all. The 3D aspect of the game was minimal and by that I mean they used it for subtitles ,and when you pick up an item. the aiming can also be done in either first ,or third person you can change this in the options menu to suit your preference. The graphics are also very nice to look at. If you're Fan of either the resident evil series or survival horrors then rent this game. trust me its worth it. I give this game an 8 out of 10 becuase although it's good it has some flaws. For instance you move like a tank and it takes forever to get from place to place. The load time for loading a new area can range from 15 -60 seconds, and the voice acting as I said before is just plain bad. Though this is my personal opinion , so keep in mind these flaws may not bother you as much as it id to me.

The game has that beautifully crafted Resident Evil look. Interesting story line that gets a little muddy towards the end but the story is also a problem. A welcome addition to the portable handheld yet the episodic presentation takes you out of the action and slows down game play to recap and go back and forth in the story line. It seems that the Resident Evil has gotten faster in its round type game play but what this player misses are the puzzles that were unique to the first three games and Code Veronica. The 3D doesn't do anything to really impress but the game is fun but more movie than actual game. It is also kind of short. Outside of Mercenaries this is a sign of better things to come.
Overall, Resident Evil: Revelations boast several triumphs, being a great display of the 3DS' capabilities, the game is worthy of it's upcoming console release. However, some downfalls means there is leeway as to how much you would enjoy the game. Please read my review and disregard the score.
THE GOOD: Revelations' wowing potential is instant. Boasting true "Survival Horror" gameplay, the game's great ship location offers dark corridors and beautiful sights. While the culprits are not the typical undead this time, rest assured that ooze zombies will keep you on your toes. They bear an aptitude for grotesque mannerisms and sudden appearances. The games best feat is the amazing soundtrack, along with other important sounds, you'll want to hear this mobile masterpiece.
THE GREY AREA: Revelations employs the series' long used chapter system. On one side this benefits the game being handheld, plentiful save points and chapter endings help short game sessions. On the other hand, chapters harm exploration, and the developers use it as an excuse to avoid the ship area. You'll be constantly zooming away from the horror bits for episodic gun-happy levels, and by the second half, the game is more action than horror. A tense last level also doesn't help the game's real problem...
THE BAD: Suffice to say, this isn't Shakespeare(though the game loves Dante). While the story starts nice and mysterious, things go downhill after the plot thickens. The game develops a cliche action movie plot regarding the BSAA, a rival anti-Bio terrorist organization, and long thwarted Bio Terrorist. By the second half of the game, not only is the the game more action-oriented, but the story is either very predictable, and starts a ridiculous cycle of bad plot twists, accompanied by goofy dialogue. This is a plot-heavy game, so if you can deal with a detrimentally goofy story, it might not affect you. Otherwise, the game can seems to take a dip in quality because of it.
