Resident Evil Revelations 2 – Story:
I have accepted that when it comes to Resident Evil, it’s best not to expect a scary game and Revelations 2 lives up to those expectations. Episode 1 starts you off with Claire. Then quickly you are introduced to Moira the daughter of Barry Burton. Within five minutes while you are at a fancy party the place is attacked and you are both taken to some holding bay in some mysterious location. You also wake up with some weird bracelet on your wrist which the purpose of it is revealed later in that episode. Half way through you then take the role of two other characters one of them being Barry Burton. Which at least in my opinion is the weaker of the two halves. I just enjoyed the atmosphere and what came with the first half more than Barry’s half though there are some good story moments within Barry’s part. The question is though who is this mysterious women known as the overseer who seems to be watching our movements throughout the game. Also on another note episode 1 took me a total of 100 minutes to complete and I cannot forget those silly references to Resident Evil 1
Resident Evil Revelations 2 – Gameplay:
While the gameplay in Revelations 2 isn’t horrible. You do get a double barreled shotgun within 20 minutes of the game and a lot of the time you will be shooting monsters, trying to complete a puzzle which really aren’t all that puzzling or you will be reading notes. The main issue with the gameplay is that Revelations 2 is too focused on trying to scare the player and there’s never really the chance to allow tension to build up. However I will say the game got me twice with jump scares! Due to story reasons, Moira refuses to use a gun which limits her combat capabilities to a crowbar and while you can use her for combat, it’s just easier to gun down enemies as Claire. Moira can see things on the wall or find hidden ammo using her flashlight making her not completely useless. But I only really used her when I was forced to or when I wanted to find hidden items. Of course you can combine herbs, find gun parts and there’s the addition of inventory management, which really adds to the experience. Each set of characters, provides different types of enemies with the more traditional enemies being in Barry’s half of the game based upon the style of Barry’s gameplay half, I was hoping it would end a bit sooner which considering the amount of episodes there will be and the length, this certainly isn’t a good thing. There is also the raid mode to play, if that interests you.
Resident Evil Revelations 2 – Graphics:
While the graphics aren’t amazing and Claire looks rather odd. Running the game at 1080P, maxed out.It certainly looks pretty good. As said I jumped twice from the jump scares, but based on the setting more tension would do wonders. The soundtrack also adds to the experience, stupid green herb sound effect. While I didn’t come across any bugs, I have seen some bad enemy AI and heard there is some clipping issues. Which despite this being half the price of a full release.Some issues shouldn’t be looked past. Also any puzzles so far in Revelations 2, that went find this item in the room felt a bit like a chore.
Resident Evil Revelations 2 – Summation:
While I cannot see Revelations 2 living up to the first title, if they can improve some of the issues and have the story continue to get better I can see this being a pretty enjoyable game. I don’t really see it becoming any more scary and I didn’t expect it to because how often can we associate Resident Evil and horror these days. It’s nothing amazing, but it’s still worth a play.I’m going to give revelations 2 my thumbs up.
- Some solid shooting
- An interesting story
- Looks pretty decent
- Some moments that made me jump
- Fails to scare
- AI bugs
- Somewhat less enjoyable Barry section
- Some puzzles feel like chores

“we weren’t able to go 60fps, we could do that, but that would mean we could only show four enemies at a time on-screen. That isn’t what Payday is about. Payday is about the onslaught of police officers coming at you at the same time, 20-30 rushing you.” – Almir Listo
What does this mean? It means that the systems are so handicapped! So early in their birth that they can’t handle a game that’s 2 years old made for PC at the standard that is 1080p and 60fps on the next generation hardware. This is yet again more proof that the systems are medico-ire at best and will continue to let gamers down in it’s console cycle. Consoles do truly hold back the medium known as gaming and if you don’t think that you’re in denial.
Hi! I’m Craig and I’m the owner GTN Gaming Tech News. I just want to be clear and frank about what this website is for and what it offers you. GTN strives to be an honest publication that only posts about relevant and important things about the tech or video game industry. Being an avid reader of more than 20 different video game and tech websites everyday. I’ve noticed a serve lack of quality within these sties like Gamespot, IGN, Kotaku and Polygon.
These sites seem to make sensational articles with misleading titles and their content is very thin across the board. Sites like these offer no value beyond the title for news and I strongly believe they are bought out besides Kotaku which is just click bait filth with no meaning behind any article at all and that’s just fact jack! Don’t believe me? Well lets take look at Kotaku’s awful recent feed below.
This is GTN’s Feed:
However not all gaming websites are bad and have earned my respect like GamesIndustry.biz, Game Informer, PC Gamer, GameTrailers.com, ScrewAttack, Engadget and even EuroGamer.net. Please notice how I linked to these sites and not the totally awful ones I mentioned up above. These sites mentioned bring you interesting articles and offer blunt and honest material inside the industry.
Anyway the point of this article is that GTN plans to be an honest publication that purely runs off of personality while getting the news that gamers would like in a condensed from. I’m Craig of GTN. GTN Gaming Tech News is the website and brand. I am the person and other people will post here in time. We are not cut and dry. We are not here to pander to fan boys. We are here to share news with like minded gamers and spread truth to gamers as well. No companies are going to buy out this site and force me to say “Assassins Creed Unity is a flawless gem that runs super smooth.” For one I have standards and for two I don’t have it in me to lie on purpose. I’m not a sell out and if you’re looking for a sell out website I’d strongly suggest IGN. – Craig Of GTN
“You can play at much higher resolutions, 1920×1080 and beyond up to the capabilities of your video card. You can also use much higher graphic settings on PC – which you gives you the best texture filtering, texture quality, and anti-aliasing in addition to other benefits. You can adjust your field of view or run higher than 60 FPS if you choose. You can even play with a three monitor setup for an immersed experience. Lastly, you get to use a mouse and keyboard which gives you the best control setup for a first person shooter.” – Mike Glosecki
