Resident Evil Revelations Rated Nearly Perfect in Famitsu
High marks for the latest Resident Evil game
Resident Evil Revelations got some major tennage in Famitsu this week. The magazine's four person review crew gave the upcoming 3DS title a near perfect score, with three 10s and a 9.
Advance copies of the next edition of Famitsu has been given to 'Sinobi' and they claim in it the reviewers of the next Resident Evil game are praising it up and down for its massive usage of 3D for presentation.
Infact they go so bold as saying this game will make customers rethink what the 3DS hardware is really capable of, if that is the case, it looks like Nintendo has another golden ticket in its hands to sell a ton more 3DS units once this game hits the marketplace.
yup this will be one of few excellent titles, shame nintendo cant focus more on its games than stupid fad controlls.
The controls were perfect in no way a gimmick and you have a few control schemes to choose from. The game feels just like playing an older Resident Evil title and the only time the touch screen is used is during a puzzle. Of the few on the demo the touch screen puzzles worked great.
Just downloaded the demo and I have to say this Resident Evil is looking good. You're no longer a superhero like in Resident Evil 5 and the feeling of terror has returned. The new menu system actually adds to the suspense and I'm very impressed with the cruise ship atmosphere. The new item finder tool pretty much turns the game into the metroid prime helmet and seems like its going to be a little bit tedious. Aside from that I'm very excited to play through this game.
"Infact they go so bold as saying this game will make customers rethink what the 3DS hardware is really capable of..."
I second that statement, the 3DS surely impressed me with Resident Evil: Revelations. It may be a "tunnel" type game but that is a great way to display what we can expect from this device once the developers get better at it. Previous gen graphics (GC, PS2, Xbox) updated with latest technology and a hardware that can run it fairly well, you get something that mimics a lot that you would see from current gen gaming devices.
Also, on a comparison standpoint, Vita will crush 3DS on a graphic level but I have to say this game may just well prove that the gap can be worked around.
