Resident Evil: Revelations was a surprise hit for Capcom, at a time when Resident Evil 6 was receiving a less than stellar reception. The ocean-based horror finally made Resident Evil feel fresh again. So it was only natural that Capcom revisit it and produce a sequel. Unfortunately, the result is a mess.

As you might expect, Revelations 2 is an over-the-shoulder shooter, which pitches you against all various foes. And by 'various', I mean knock-offs of the zombies from previous games. The only difference is they appear to be cloaked in sackcloth. Barry Burton and Claire Redfield, both series semi-regulars, return. In fact everything from the series returns, and not in a good way.

Revelations is dull as ditchwater, for the simple fact that it's Resident Evil by the numbers. Every location seems recycled from previous games and even if you're a newcomer to the series, there are far better games out there. It's lacking any humour, and while it's no cakewalk, completing an episode feels oddly unsatisfying.

Yes, it's episodic. Which is in itself absurd as all four episodes were released at the same time, so there was no reason for it to be so. True, Revelations had an episodic feel to it, but the storyline was so well paced, and the episodes so short that it was genuinely suspenseful. Here you've got four episodes of utter tedium.

Were it not sporting the Resident Evil name i doubt Revelations would even have got greenlit. You've got dull run of the mill enemies, boxy levels - speaking of which, there's actually a box-shoving puzzle at once point - and it's genuinely hard to find anything to redeem this game.

No matter how much of a Resident Evil completist you are, there's no reason to get this. Resident Evil 7 is a far superior game and you're best off saving your cash for that. This just feels like a cheap and nasty cash grab.

We can only hope that Revelations 1 hits current generation platforms at some point but for now, this mess is best avoided.
