Plot

In Resident Evil: Revelations for Nintendo 3DS the beginnings of the BSAA organization which fights bioterrorism in various places all over the globe are revealed. This time the action takes place on a giant passenger ship taken over by a “mysterious” virus. During the game player will also visit European dock city and its mountain surroundings. The main protagonists of the game are Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine.

Mechanics

Gameplay mechanics of Resident Evil: Revelations for Nintendo 3DS are similar to previous installments of the series (the ones before Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5). The title is a typical example of survival horror genre. It contains much action, but the essence of the game is exploration and solving simple riddles. The story of the game takes place between the adventures of Leon S. Kennedy (RE4) and Chris Redfield’s (RE5).

A completely new control system was used in Resident Evil: Revelations for Nintendo 3DS. It gives the user complete control over the character (the character can walk even when he aims at the enemies). Situations when during battle player was forced to remain in one place and be vulnerable to enemy attacks no longer take place. In Revelations it is possible to run through the locations and shoot at the same time. Because of this change, the developers increased the difficulty of the game – enemies are faster and smarter.

Technical aspects

The title offers high quality graphics similar in style to RE5 that was released in 2009 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game works in 3D mode which has very positive impact on the dark tune of the game.

Resident Evil: Revelations is a survival horror game for Xbox One and a spin-off installment of the well-known Resident Evil series. It was developed by the Japanese Capcom, the creators of the franchise. Initially, Revelations was exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS handheld console but in time was converted to other platforms in an enhanced edition.

Plot

The game takes place between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5. In Revelations, we are taken to the year 2005 to accompany Jill Valentine and Parker Luciani of the newly established BSAA in their search of Chris Redfield and Jessica Sherawa. The duo ends up on Queen Zenobia, a ship where a T-Abyss epidemic broke out and turned people into monsters. The story campaign lets us assume the role of several characters and contains episodes that take place in different locations, for example, in an Italian port town.

Mechanics

While developing Resident Evil: Revelations, the developers tried to combine the atmosphere and style of the initial installments of the Resident Evil series with the enhancements of the fourth one. Instead of dynamic action sequences, we get a rather modest gameplay that involves exploration, looking for items, solving puzzles, and fighting opponents. Capcom also implemented some novelties—the biggest ones were introduced in controls that allow to run and shoot simultaneously. This increased the mobility of our enemies, as well.

Game modes

The so-called Raid Mode, which a set of special missions that can be played solo or in cooperation with another player, are an important addition to the story campaign of Resident Evil: Revelations for Xbox One. The mode introduces increasingly difficult challenges and encourages replaying tasks. The players can make their chances for survival bigger by gathering and enhancing equipment for the acquired funds.

Technical aspects

The conversion from 3DS to home platforms received numerous additions. Capcom increased the resolution to match the HD standard, improved the lighting system, and rebuild the character models. The aforementioned Raid Mode was enriched with a previously unknown monster, new weapons, and an additional playable character, Hunk. The developer also enhanced missions by changing the monster setup, among other things.
