First Resident Evil Revelations review is in!

Even though the game won’t be out until January 27th in Europe and February 7th in America, the first review of Resident Evil Revelations has appeared in the UK gaming magazine, GamesMaster. While it’s a bit surprising how early it’s come in, we’ve gotten a go-ahead from Capcom it’s alright to talk about this, and if you put a bit of thought into it, it’s not the most surprising thing. Resident Evil games are often in development for several years, and often are completed several months before their release dates. The last few months up until official release are spent advertising, polishing up the game, etc., and the game seems to already be completed and ready for it’s upcoming release date.

The first review of Revelations gives the game a score of 91%, calling it a true return to form for the series. For comparison, they gave Resident Evil 5 an 87%, saying the game was a fun co-op experience but lacked in single player and scares. On Revelations front, they say the game is the scariest handheld game ever as well as one of the scariest Resident Evil games, and praise the environments, story, and scares of the game. They claim the game is, “choking full of atmosphere,” and that it is, “the game to convince Resi fans that the series is back to its best.”

Check out the full review in GameMaster’s January 2012 issue.

    Very nice! I am so pumped up for Revelations! Relieved to hear it’s getting praise already, although I’m not surprised!

    Glad Capcom heard our cries for a return to true horror! πŸ˜€

  • cool! im getting the cricle pad to see if the gameplay works better with two analog sticks πŸ˜€

    Cleary cant wait,also the new scense on the last ign article are to take a look,the last video was pretty creepy and thats what we love πŸ˜€

    Awesome! but I think I will wait for the Wii U because I believe if they are making The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess in HD then they’ll probably do the same for Skyward Sword and Resident Evil Revelations! and since we still have to wait for the Wii U probably add some new features! πŸ™‚

    Great news, but I’m hoping this will also get released on non-Nintendo ‘living-room’ consoles as well.

    It often feels as though the better a Resident Evil game is, the fewer platforms it’s available on.

    Well I can’t wait to get my hands on it, and to say Capcom heard our cries to bring back true horror seems exxagerated, more like another good hit out of a few misses. Some titles will be better than others, this happens to be better than the last game but just as good as the recent one, RE4, but mixed with the best from the series old genre. It was nicely implemented, especially having the atomsphere that was missing in 5, which felt more like a scifi thriller than horror. But all and all. But what makes this game shine is the fact Capcom took their time on this one than RE5, which seemed like a rush job. Adding new features and extras. To think all this comes from a portable title alone is almost hard to believe as it is amazing.

    Cool! Man I wish I had a 3ds or money to buy one. :/

  • mike

    sounds great but i just cannot play hand helds. i need a big tv and surround sound. hope they port it to consoles. glad to hear its scary again. re hasnt been scary since RE3.

  • Mrox2

    same as ale

  • Chris

    I’m pumped and glad to hear that. But wait a second, all the other main series Resident Evil games are on the larger game systems.

    That’s so fucking gay its not on the XBOX 360 or PS3. I have all the other RE games except for the ones on this handheld thing and on the WII.

    WTF!!! I really want to play this. Capcom isn’t thinking this out clearly. They need to release this as DLC for the bigger systems.
