Resident Evil Revelations 2

The beginning of the Resident Evil Revelations 2 tale sees fan favorite Claire Redfield make a dramatic return. Survivor of the Raccoon City incident depicted in previous Resident Evil games, Claire now works for the anti-bioterrorism organization Terra Save. Moira Burton, is attending her welcome party for Terra Save when unknown armed forces storm the office. Claire and Moira are knocked unconscious and awaken later to find themselves in a dark and abandoned detention facility. Working together, they must find out who took them and to what sinister end. Will Claire and Moira make it out alive and discover what’s led to them being taken to this remote island? A story of twists and turns will have players guessing the next step at every turn.
Headed for the remote prison island in search of his missing daughter, Barry Burton meets brand new character Natalia Korda, a little girl who has a strange power that allows her to sense enemies and hidden items. Using this skill alongside Barry’s proven combat abilities, players will need to alternate between the two to survive the mysterious island and find Moira. With terrifying enemies waiting around every dark corner, Barry will need to use his ammo and weapon supply wisely, in classic survival horror style.
Evolving the episodic chapter set-up of the original Resident Evil Revelations, Resident Evil Revelations 2 will initially release as a weekly series of episodic downloads beginning on February 24, 2015. Players also have the option of choosing Complete Season or Full Bundle, ensuring fans have access to each episode as it releases along with additional bonus content. Each episode in Resident Evil Revelations 2 includes Raid mode content and two full playable scenarios focused on the previously announced Claire and Moira campaign and the newly confirmed Barry and Natalia storyline.

  • Revelations 2 isn’t quite a return to form for the series or anything quite so dramatic, but it’s an example of doing more with less.

  • Revelations 2 as an episodic horror works surprisingly well, and even though it may discourage with its weak story and dialogues, the gameplay and strong content are saving the game. Replayability works here well too, so you can spend long hours playing this gruesome entertainment.

  • Resident Evil Revelations 2 is a robust title, despite its low-budget production. The gameplay is somehow simpler, closer to the old chapters of the saga, and yet still captivating.

  • The stubborn insistence on co-op elements impedes more than it helps. But otherwise Capcom is on a good way back to old survival horror virtues with Revelations 2. And that is something that I didn’t think possible after the Resident Evil 6 experience.

  • Revelations 2 may not induce as much heart-pounding from its horror elements as we would have liked, but it still spins a gripping tale with great atmosphere and an actually terrifying villain. Although it lacks in level variety, the campaign improves on the first Revelations quite a bit and stands as a gloomy counterpoint to the adrenaline rush of the simple yet surprisingly addictive raid mode.

  • It feels like visiting an old friend. New in some regards, but nothing too surprising. And in this case, that's actually a good thing.

  • Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is a reminiscent of the old school survival horror with some modern mechanics from the new Resident Evil. The plot is a little stereotypical, but the game has seductive sounds and atmosphere.

  • PC Gamer

    A confident mishmash of a few different Resi games. [July 2015, p.70]

  • CD-Action

    Despite obvious financial limitations the developers bent over backwards to provide us with the best game possible. Revelations 2 does not reach the level of the last three main Resident Evils, but I keep my fingers crossed for it to succeed deservedly, because it seems all these guys need to create a top-notch game is more money. [04/2015, p.48]

  • Resident Evil Revelations 2, as a full game, offers a lot of content and has great replay value. Sadly not everything in this package is good, and some parts of the campaign are a bit boring. It's a good game but it's not at the same level as the first Revelations.

  • Despite its obvious tight budget, Revelations 2 is a much better game than the last offering in the main series, Resident Evil 6.

  • Capcom doesn’t fund Revelations series properly, so Revelations 2 at times looks too old-fashioned and underpolished, – yet it still manages to be sufficiently tense, difficult and interesting for a series’ fan. [May 2015, p.66]

  • Like a punchdrunk heavyweight in the 15th round, Revelations 2 is both a sad echo of former glory and an agonizingly perfect summation of it. It should have been over long ago, but it remains a marvel to see how much will remains in the slouching goliath, the once powerful frame of sculpted muscle and sinew slowly turned into dead weight, counting as a victory anything that keeps it on its feet for another round.

  • Resident Evil Revelations 2 must be played with a second person, preferably someone who doesn't mind having a passive support role. It's easier to appreciate the story and gameplay, which aren't half bad, when you don't have to switch between characters all the time.
