We speedrun through the Resident Evil: Revelations demo. Can you beat our time?

The free demo of Resident Evil: Revelations went up on the 3DS store yesterday and, as with the one that came with Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, it's over far too quickly. But that doesn't mean we can't have more fun with it once we've explored all the area has to offer, right? For instance... how quickly can you finish it?

We've made a video of us (i.e. me) doing it in 4 minutes from pushing 'start' to triggering the final cut-scene. After a few goes to practice, naturally. On the video, you'll hear the voices of my good self and GR's UK Editor, Matt Cundy. I'm doing the playing, Matt's doing the distracti... sorry, 'helping'.

This was a modestly fast run for a third attempt (aside from getting exploded in the kitchen), though my unrecorded practice run was 3m 47s. Can you go faster? Hope you've got enough of your allotted 30 plays left to give it a go...

    Wrong, Justin. I don't know how you came to that conclusion, but after having played the demo many, many times, and already finding this out on the FIRST TRY, I know that the last monster, the spiky one, does NOT have to be killed.

    Also, the first time I tried to speedrun it, I included the cutscenes, but I concluded that it is pretty much impossible to get the time you guys got while excluding the cutscenes (I got, like, 4.20, especially considering I straight up ran through it, and you guys had problems with the first monster and the exploding monster, that time seems silly). So I tried it again, excluded the cutscenes, and got 3.17. So I guess I'll count that as the actual time.

    Wow... Just finished playing this demo. Now THIS is how you build expectancy for a game! Proper introduction of some of the enemies you will encounter during the game, introduction of new game mechanics like the Supply Scanner, actual scares and great visuals to go! All in 10 Min. of gameplay. I was cautious about this game, but this in many ways a Game Changer. (Awful Pun)

    Man was I impressed by this demo. I guess I didn't believe all the previews that said this game went back to its roots, but it sure does. I even liked the Metroid Prime-esque environment scanner. Seems like they borrowed that, as well as the ability to gather research on enemies as in BioShock. Anyhow, this demo took the game from a "wait for a sale" to a day 1 buy for me. I guess that was their plan all along. Damn you, Nintendo! As for a speedrun, I was too busy admiring how great everything looked to even consider it. The smoke/fog looks particularly outstanding. The aiming was a little rough, but I know it's just because I need to get used to it.

    "As for a speedrun, I was too busy admiring how great everything looked to even consider it. The smoke/fog looks particularly outstanding.

Controls still like a little getting used to however! Will have to get the circle pad pro just for this game, so I can admire the just how everything looks! Oh and good run through! Guys do more like this, well done Gamesradar team :)
