Resident Evil: Revelations (HD Console Edition)
Top Critic Average
Resident Evil: Revelations is a inconsistent attempt trying to gives fans traditional Resident Evil. Yet it fails at realising survival horror and never commits to either genre it attempts to give players. There are much better options for players who want either focused styles of Resident Evil.
This new version of Resident Evil: Revelations is mainly intended for those that never played it before, and have one of the current generation of consoles. It's a simple port with nothing added from previous generations, and you can tell that with outdated textures and graphics.
If you’re new to the series and have recently jumped into Resident Evil 7, then Revelations gives you a taste of nostalgia, complete with the cheesy characters and dialogue that fans love, but most importantly, it’s a horror game at its core
Resident Evil Revelations isn’t a bad horror game. Though it is a remaster. If you’re looking for a superior horror experience, might we point you towards its sequel, Resident Evil Revelations 2 which is a far more better game?
If you know nothing but Resident Evil 7, then you may well find this as a step back, but if you’re looking for a solid Resident Evil game or simply a horror title in general, then Resident Evil Revelations isn’t a bad way to go
Since gracing the screens of the 3DS way back in 2012, Resident Evil Revelations has been one of the most anticipated Resident Evil games to receive a HD Remaster for PS4 this year. Following in the footsteps of the other Resident Evil games, Revelations follows series regulars and fan favourites Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield as they explore a terrorist hideaway and the biological organic weaponry (B.O.W) that has been created on an abandoned cruise ship, The Queen Zenobia.
If you’re desperate to complete your remastered Resident Evil collection, and have never played Resident Evil: Revelations before, the low price point is appealing. The game is certainly worth experiencing for Resident Evil fans, if only for the ridiculous and entertaining plot.
Resident Evil: Revelations is a good port. The story is fun, the atmosphere is immersive, but graphics are a little too rusty compared to the new games. On the bright side, you don't have to worry about bugs and optimization.

Visually, Resident Evil: Revelations is a bit rough around the edges but that doesn't hold it back from being an intense and enjoyable action-based entry in the series, either by playing solo or teaming up with a friend in Raid Mode.
The 3DS origins are apparent on more than the graphical side, as the episodic nature coupled with the flashback jumps and multiple characters weighs heavy on Resident Evil: Revelations' story mode, breaking things up far too often, instead of letting things flow in what is otherwise a great survival horror setting. Overlooking the pitfalls, this is still a solid action game that fans of modernised third-person shooter Resi will get some mileage out of, and is multiplied tenfold when diving into Raid Mode.
