This game is terrible. I received it on Wednesday, played for about 4 hours, then sent it back Thursday. The story line is stupid. The camera controls are frustrating, and the overall experience of the game is weak.
RE Revelations is a nice mix of the modern RE games, and the old school style games. Though it does pull a lot more from the newer ones.
First the things I did not like:
-The buddy system in the game removes a lot of the tension
-The setting. It's cool that it's a cruise ship but has been done before ( and better in Resident Evil Dead Aim)
-Episodes. While it was neat, it really broke up the flow of the game though it did allow for many different locations and characters. I do think that the different characters sort of took away from the story a bit at times.
What I did like:
-Old School RE Vibe. Ala Resident Evil 4
-On a cruise ship. That can be really creepy if you think about how massive a cruise ship is, how empty it can feel and how vast the ocean is. Being lost on a monster infested cruise ship in the middle of the ocean is a pretty scary thing.
-Controls. They were handled well enough to give you the actiony vibe of newer REs but keep the feel of the older ones
-Jill and Chris. Both continuing RE characters we all liked
-Parker: How can you not like this guy? He's great
Overall the plot of the game while still kinda cheese is a lot of fun, and helps give you that creepy RE atmosphere. The ship lended to some new elements like swimming through sunken parts of it. That was really cool.
If you are a fan of older RE games definitely check this one out. If you like the newer ones, check it out. There is something here for every player.
Verdict: Rent (or buy if you really like RE games)
