Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Review Summary

FairCritic Consensus

Resident Evil Revelations 2 continues the side series's maintaining of the franchise's original design, but ultimately it is just that. It's lacklustre graphics and reliance on familiar game design led critics to agree that it was good, but simply a stop-gap between major releases.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 might not move the series forward, but, at the same time, it isn't at all the cheap cash-in it easily could have been. If you're a survival horror fan in need of a Resident Evil fix, Revelations 2 will definitely be fulfilling.

Overall, though, Resident Evil Revelations 2 suffers from the same disjointed quality that initially makes it look appealing. It's a good game that potentially could have been great had Capcom just given it a bit more time or a bit more direction.
