Resident Evil Revelations

After the disappointingly derivative Resident Evil 5 and the stale, utterly exhausting Resident Evil 6, the love I felt for one of my favorite series was at an all-time low. But surprisingly — through a port of a Nintendo 3DS game of all things — my faith in the series has been revived.

Although far from perfect, Resident Evil: Revelations manages to recapture the spirit of the originals while tweaking the core mechanics in meaningful ways. It still has some of that Jack Bauer/Michael Bay/action-gamey baggage from RE5 and RE6, but it’s much easier to look past this time around.

Lesson: Resident Evil isn’t dead. And, Capcom? If it ain’t broke, don’t use your survival horror franchise to attempt to hit every demographic under the sun.
