Gamersyde was invited to a preview session of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 in Paris some time ago, and we were able to try out the second episode of the game starring Barry Burton and the young and mysterious Natalia. Added to that, we were also given the ooportunity to play the game's Raid mode in two chapters set in a town that looked very much like Raccoon City. The full preview is on the French side but we'll translate the conclusion as soon as possible. Until then, make sure to check the two long gameplay videos we were authorized to show you. They showcase the main campaign and the Raid mode so you can see what the game has to offer. Enjoy!
This second episode will give us a chance to discover a new character, Natalia Korda, which is certainly interesting in terms of scenario design, but players controlling her may run into limitations pretty quickly in cooperative mode. Stealth fans, however, should appreciate her gift of clairvoyance which proves rather useful when it comes to detecting the enemy. In order to respect the episodic tradition, the storyline seems rather promising and is revealed in small bits. If you’d like to unsheathe the infected following the main campaign, the raid mode will offer the chance to unleash your primitive instincts, but this won’t be to everyone’s tastes. Even if it fails to revolutionize the genre, the RPG aspects may be enough to drive players to fully engage in the experience while impatiently awaiting the next episode!
... I can't even think of what they want. Maybe expecting CoH or AoE or even a Starcraft like game, but it's not even trying to be a strategy game like that. (6 Hours ago)
@rayy: I think so. If I hit on something later in the game that I haven't gotten to yet I'll let you know, but so far I don't see any control flaws. (6 Hours ago)
If you took the sword work and handling from Witcher and put it in Skyrim, you have the ultimate game in that genre. Mods made Skyrim in my opinion; vanilla was stunted outside of stealth backstabbery (6 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (9 Hours ago)
And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (9 Hours ago)
I get that you think Skyrim is crap, but The Witcher 3 aint "a good version of Skyrim" because they have totally different goals. TW3 doesn't even attempt half the systems that Skyrim does. (9 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Nah, that's *really* not all there is to it. You're comparing a broken apple with a poorly designed orange. (9 Hours ago)
