Soli HD remaster of the 3Ds game.
Classic Resident Evil gameplay.
Exciting sense of gameplay and storytelling that always keep you wanting to see more.
Creepy atmosphere punctuated by bits of action.
Inspired enemy design.
A lovable (if a bit campy) cast of characters.
No remarkable enhancements.
Revelations has a gigantic, inexcusable flaw: At times, it makes you play as that big doofus Chris Redfield.
Off-boat sections are poor.
Trial-and-error boss fights.
Backtracking in search of helpful items.
Grinding for gear in Raid Mode.

Outside of the campaign, there's Raid mode, an opportunity to fight off enemies solo or with another player, and though the process of leveling up and earning points with which you can purchase more and better gear is predictably compelling, the combat still lacks the spark of scariness that infused the action of earlier Resident Evil entries.65

So much of what makes Resident Evil: Revelations work is how Capcom plays it safe with level designs and gameplay mechanics. That said, the new characters and the bio scanner help turn the game into something more than a well made by-the-numbers Resident Evil.80

This HD edition builds subtly on the 3DS foundations, but thankfully doesn't crush them under the needless AAA junk that has dragged the series so far off course. That leaves a game that is just rough enough around the edges to win over fans who still pine for the series' heyday, and suggests the saga might yet come back to life.70

Revelations has a lot to offer fans of the series and players looking for a more evenly paced, thoughtful shooter. The new content, including an entertaining challenge-based two-player co-op mode, along with dual-analog stick control make this the definitive version of Resident Evil: Revelations.88

While it doesn’t completely escape the shortcomings of its original outing, Capcom’s HD-ified version of Resident Evil: Revelations is still as fun and enthralling as it was on the 3DS - while now also benefitting from the improvements in controls, visuals, and audio that other gaming platforms can offer.85
