We reviewed RE Revelations 2 Ep. 4

All the episodes of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 should now have been released, with two bonus episodes adding some content to those who purchased the complete season or the box version of the game. The fourth episode is a bit slower than the previous two but there are still a few surprises that keep it interesting enough. Inside, you'll find our verdict and a couple of videos of the PC version. Beware that the second one should be avoided unless you want to spoil yourself the main campaign.

Verdict


Although this final episode is disappointing on several aspects, among which the unsurprising conclusion, it should please most fans thanks to its undeniable qualities. The episodic choice Capcom made could have been the game's downfall, but it works well here, and the price/quality ratio is actually good for those who want content. Our only grudge with the game is that the 2 bonus episodes feel cheap, even though they try hard to bring something new to the whole thing. That being said, we can't help but feel that Revelations 2 is no more than a snack offered to fans to ease the wait until Resident Evil 7. Some might even argue that this new spin-off has no real legitimacy in the series, which is somehow true. The silver lining is that the overall experience is pretty enjoyable and at the end of the day, it's better than nothing.



On the plus side


+ The length of the Barry/Natalia scenario
+ Tongue in cheeks references that should please the fans
+ UNlockables are plenty (character statues, costumes, special weapons, visual filters…)
+ Two different endings
+ The digital version is worth your money


Les moins


- The first part with Claire & Moira lasts 15 minutes
- Disappointing final twist
- A bunch of improbable situations
- No new enemies (except for the final boss)
- The bonus episodes aren't worth it, particularly the second one

Episode 4 - Gameplay
The struggle - extra episode (SPOILERS)

I noticed that someone was streaming this game on twitch, so I decided to giv it a view, just to see what it looked like. I noticed it was an action-packed cutscene.....then I seen the credits. I just seen this game's ending. :( I guess I can scratch this one off my 2015 purchase list. Lesson learned.

    GriftGFX People need to not get caught up on the tick rate and look at how revealing the response delay/lag compensation analysis is. Which aint good. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX The reason that most interactions feel good on the shooters side is because it's drenched in latency compensation, which isn't actually good. (1 Hour ago)

    Melmoth abbreviated as PS, while people often write PS1. I remember buying pirated Playstation games from HK in 95-96 which had a crappy PSX logo pasted over the top of the artwork.. super legit :) (5 Hours ago)

    Melmoth @KORNdog: yea, i laugh when i see PSX. somehow it's stuck for all those years. Ofc there's an actual product called PSX which is the PS2 based recorder. As for Playstation i think it's officially (5 Hours ago)
