Resident Evil Revelations 2 Complete Season

Overview -

From the humble beginnings as a handheld spinoff, 'Resident Evil Revelations' was popular enough on the 3DS that Capcom eventually went full multiplatform. With 'Resident Evil Revelations 2,' Capcom announced some big changes. First of all, the game would be a digital console title without any handheld version. Second, the game would be released in four installments over the course of four weeks, at the end of which bonus episodes would be offered.

Those two aspects alone are pretty big departure from the first 'Revelations,' but it seems that for Capcom, that was only the beginning.

Video Review


This is still the 'Revelations'/'Mercenaries' engine, and it looks in ways worse than early 360/PS3 games. Somehow, this accomplishes the B-movie feel that games like 'House of the Dead: Overkill' have done well with before.

One note on the Xbox One version. The game does a lot of checks when it loads up. Checks for DLC, Raid compatibility and the linked 'Resident Evil Account' greet the player when the game is launched. This takes some time, but wouldn't be so bad except that whenever the game is suspended on the Xbox One (say when powering off in instant-on mode), returning to the game means getting an "Account Profile changed" message and kicking backed to the title screen, followed by the series of checks.

Audio Review


Music and voice acting fare much better, and that stilted but signature modern 'Resident Evil' tone is nailed perfectly. There are talking teddy bears, and people acting serious while saying 'TerraSave.' The music is very creepy in an exaggerated manner throughout the game and is the best part of 'Little Miss.' Monster sounds could do with more variety.

Final Thoughts

No matter how many times I cringed at the ugly environments, or was flustered as story details were pushed out in favor of fixing lifts, at the end of the day, I enjoyed 'Resident Evil Revelations 2' so much that I want Capcom to make a number '3' in a similar mold. That really sums it up.
