|Resident Evil: Revelations returns the game to its horror survival roots while offering it a much needed redemption after a series of failures in 2012.
Set between the events of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5; the game tells the story of how the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance was established. While investigating the actions of a bio-terrorist group, Chris Redfield has gone missing with his last location being the abandon SS Queen Zenobia.
Gamers will once again take on the role of Jill Valentine as she works with Parker Luciani to investigate the horrors of the Queen Zenobia, stop the terrorists and save Chris.
Resident Evil: Revelations has a gameplay structure that kept the best elements of Resident Evil 4 while reintroduced content from the classic games. New to the series will be the bio-scanner that allows players to find items and hidden secrets. The currency system has been removed in favor of having to find weapons and upgrades.
Unlike previous games, Resident Evil: Revelations has abandoned zombies in favor of a new kind of mutation that is based on an aquatic theme and feature vampire like traits. The Ooze creatures may have the "zombie" characteristics but they are a different type of mutation.
While Revelations is a much better game then Resident Evil 6, it dose share some of its flaws. The obvious being the laughable plot of terrorists using zombie virus. As with previous games, it really lacks the horror element while having a fear factor that is the equivalent to a Twilight-film.
Resident Evil: Revelations is the redemption the series has long needed, despite its faults. However it would be in Capcom's best interest to learns from its past failures and make an attempt to reboot the game back to its roots of terror.
