Resident Evil: Revelations was a 3DS exclusive when it first made its way into the world. While it was a well-received success on the handheld, however, there was a huge chunk of the Resi audience left out in the cold - console and PC gamers. Thankfully, with this release Capcom is looking to redress the balance.

Revelations is set in 2005, between the events of RE4 and 5. It’s based around BSAA (Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance) co-founders Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield as well as their new partners, and former FBC (Federal Bioterrorism Commission) agents Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat. We start out in the middle of the Mediterranean controlling Jill Valentine. Accompanied by her partner, Parker Luciani, she's heading to what appears to be an abandoned cruise ship in search of Chris Redfield and Jessica Sherawat at their last known GPS location. Horror, of course, ensues.

Revelations has attempted to revisit Resident Evil's roots by incorporating much more survival horror than the previous few titles, as well as focusing more on exploration and puzzle solving. This is a survival horror game that’s actually quite scary at times, believe it or not. It has a very eerie feel as, for example, you’re wading through partially flooded corridors wondering where the next BOW’s going to jump out from.

A new feature to Revelations is the ‘Genesis’ – a tool that can be used to scan the area for any hidden items (ammo, herbs etc) as well as to scan BOWs. Each time you scan a BOW, you receive X%. Once you reach 100%, you’ll receive a herb, which can be used to heal your character.

To keep things fresh, there's also Raid mode, which can be played online with a partner. Each stage of Raid mode is an extract from a campaign mission in which you’re tasked with killing the enemies quickly and accurately. As you complete a stage, you earn more BP points, as I mentioned earlier. You’re then able to spend these (and any points from the campaign) on new weapons, upgrades, herbs etc.

All in all, Revelations is a horror gamer's Resi title that's sure to keep old school fans of the series happy.
