Resident Evil: Revelations (3DS) – Better Than I Thought

I downloaded the demo for Resident Evil: Revelations for the 3DS on a lark, knowing full well that me and horror (be it movies or games), don’t actually go well together…in fact, I can’t go through a horror movie without an extended amount of cringing. It turned out to be one of the best looking games I’ve ever seen on a Nintendo portable platform.

If you have not checked out the demo yet, head over to the eShop and start downloading now. I’ve still haven’t gotten used to the game yet, having made it only to the part where the character I was playing found the hidden object scanner. The enemy creatures look absolutely scary and you’ll need to be prepared to expend plenty of bullets to take each of them down.

There’s only one difficult mode for the demo and there’s no ability to save as well, but yes, the game seems to be a good sampler for the real thing that is scheduled to be released early next month. Will I be getting the game? Maybe not (the reason is in the first paragraph), but if you enjoy the series or the genre of games, feel free to check it out!

    I wasn’t a big fan of the demo, to be completely honest. See, what bugged me (and has done since Resident Evil 5) is how linear these games have become, and how shooter-heavy.

    Where’s the real horror elements, such as only having enough bullets to shoot down one zombie, and no idea where to find more? Revelations gives you a whopping big arsenal, even in the demo. Yes, there are more monsters to shoot, but that moves the game closer to action than horror. A good horror game has only a few enemies, but you’re meant to be frightened of them.

    It looked good and controlled well, but lacked any atmosphere, just like Resident Evil 5.

    Oh well, hopefully Fatal Frame gets a western release.
