The first instalment of the Resident Evil games this edition was released in 1996 but then rereleased in 2002 with upgraded graphics, music plus plenty of new game play features. It is a whole lot of zombie fun where you will have a great time shooting the monsters into oblivion by using many different means that are made available to you. It’s fast and furious with a great storyline that zombie fans will really enjoy playing.
Following up from The Umbrella Chronicles this is a great sequel. The story carries on from the previous edition and is filled with excitement and fun that will keep you playing for hours. I am a huge Resident Evil fan but do try to come from an “on the fence “perspective being objective in my opinions while at the same time true to myself. This game is superb plus is definitely one for the zombie collection. Where else can you commit murder or cause mayhem guilt free except in a gruesome zombie game, so let’s get under way.
This game as you would expect is set in the Resident Evil Universe with teams completing missions against the clock to free the place of zombies. There are twenty missions across six levels that get more and more difficult as you progress. The first few are more like tutorials so you can reduce that number by three or four in reality. The game has the time honoured features of Resident Evil the Mercenaries but with great 3D effects making it a worthy release in this fabulous format for the zombie genre.
What other way could you run around the place blasting at the enemy while taking great delight in blowing them to smithereens? Resident Evil Revelations is simply a superlative, fantastic zombie fighting game that I cannot praise highly enough. It is filled with suspense, so will keep you on the edge of your seat as you play, something that not all zombie games actually do. This game is so realistic that you will almost think you are there facing the evil hordes in person.
Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles is a combination of light gun game play plus gun survivor game that will take you into the superior realms of the Resident Evil series. As a long time ardent fan of Resident Evil games I was really looking forward to this edition and believe me I am not disappointed. It incorporates all the characters, weapons, locations plus much more into one huge nostalgic saunter down memory lane for those of us who have played Resident evil from the start.
