Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro One of the strongest Resident Evil game in the series
RE: Revelations 2 is an excellent installment in the series. It has a very solid, engaging plot and memorable characters that keep you motivated throughout the story.
Pro The campaign isn't the only draw to the game, Raid Mode adds dozens of hours of content for you to play
Raid mode is back, and it's so much better than the first game. Raid Mode is a run-and-gun game that can be played either solo or cooperatively with a friend; you get to blast your way through enemies in short stages and upgrade your equipment on your way. You also level up in Raid Mode - you obtain a set amount of skill points and can use them to customize your character in order to make your Raid Mode experience more fulfilling.
You can also unlock several characters to play as you go through the episodes of the campaign and earn achievements.
Pro Thoughtful gameplay
Revelations 2 uses its horror theme to encourage thoughtful play. Ammo is scarce, so players need to be thoughtful about inventory management. Players will have to solve puzzles to get through some of the encounters. Sometimes, it is wiser to sneak past enemies than shoot them.
Pro The return of classic characters
Revelations 2 brings back characters like Claire and Barry, who have been missing from the Resident Evil series for years. Their absence has been disappointing, so it's great to see them returning.
Pro Great variety
Revelations 2's episodic structure means that players switch between different characters with unique play styles. Additionally, each episode sees players exploring different locations, with a lot of cool gameplay variety.
Pro Entertaining episodic story
Episode-style games are still catching on fairly quickly. It's a great way to keep people entertained and keep the content flowing.
Con Lack of detail in the visual design
One of the more plain looking Resident Evil games, the graphics are not really going to wow anyone.
