Resident Evil: Revelations (HD Console Edition)
Top Critic Average
Another Resident Evil: Revelations port suffers from the laziness of developers, which translates into outdated graphics and the lack of worthwhile innovations (original game was released 5 years ago). On the other hand, you should buy this game if you love Resident Evil series and have not played through earlier versions of Revelations.

It's still a better-than-average game that features a classic series plot and two of my favorite characters. If you go into it with the understanding that this is a port of a handheld game, you should be more than pleased with it.
If you have already played as such, its purchase is highly dispensable.

There isn't much new on show here, but fans won't really mind - it's an entertaining romp through the Queen Zenobia emulating the heydays of the series. When you're low on ammo and out of herbs, dreading ambushes at every corner, you're reminded what made Resident Evil so good in the first place.
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
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.

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 on PS4 is a solid representation of the second-generation of games in the franchise that gets new life once again on current-gen consoles. Folks who never played the game before will get the most mileage out of this. If you only played it on 3DS, it might actually be worth picking up again as the experience feels different in the dark on the big screen. Those who already played it on PS3, meanwhile, really don’t have much reason to take this trip once again as it doesn’t really offer much that’s new. As much as I loved the original on 3DS, playing it a third time admittedly blunts its impact.
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.
I'd dare say that most Resident Evil fans have possibly found a way to have played this already, and there is really no incentive to come back for another round.
