This game is great even though it has its small shares of slight annoyines, but overall I had a great experiences. The story, although a bit hard to follow since it keeps you in the dark for most of the time until the end, was well thought out and interesting. The combat was like none other on the 3DS at the time of this review. The tense enviroment and action sequences are challenging and fun, dispite some difficult encounters such as the last boss. But then again it was the last boss so it made sense. The puzzles were more for children since they didn't really offer any challenge what so ever though. The bonus modes unlocked at the end were a ton of fun and actually more fun than the actual story mode, adding a lot of replay value. The only bad part was the lack of people playing this game online so I was not able to try out the online mode. This game has a ton of unlockables and great replay value. I almost didn't want to send it back to GameFly. I hope Capcon's next 3DS installment is just as great as this game.
Let Me start off by saying that this is a great Addition to the Resident Evil Series, it stays true to the series in terms of game play and adds a new chapter style that works perfectly for the 3ds.
The game looks visually awesome, with fluid animations and smooth frame rate through out most of the game. The Graphics are strong with great lighting and color effects, with the only downfall being the monsters which are all the same color, grey. Some stuttering mostly through the scenes where the game transitions maps, and loading times are somewhat long.
Revelations has a very robust music track that sometimes over samples and becomes distorted on the 3ds hardware. I have never noticed this on other games, however no other game has come even close to being as loud.
The game will take about 10-11 hours to get through and you will enjoy every minute. the multi-player (which is essentially a co-op version of single player) is online and makes very good use of these capabilities, allowing for Leveling up similar to what were used to in this generation of games.
BUT with the Circle Pad Pro it actually controls WAY better than RE5! The story and Graphics are on par with the RE5 or RE4. the 3D in this game is awesome and helps the gameplay too. Play this game with a good pair of headphones and you will get the best Audio a RE game has had in a long time! MUST BUY! If you have a 3DS this must be in your top 5 games!
