Why Resident Evil: Revelations could be better than Resi 5


The plot hopefully won't stink like rotting zombie ass

"It doesn't matter, because you're already..." Cheers ambiguous tied up dude. Chris and Jill are already what? Infected? Reality TV contestants? Dead?! Are you trying to pull a Lost/Sixth Sense of us, Revelations?

While that cryptic nugget is exciting on its own, the whole theme of the trailer, namely Redfield making a dubious decision that's royally f*cked everything up, is what really interests us. It's clear Chris and Jill have had a right ruddy falling out, even drawing their guns on each other at the end.

Above: John Woo would cream his shorts over this

Ted Mystery also alludes to the pair trying to find something, which we'd gamble could be a new strain of the T-Virus. Put all these pieces together and we could be in for the most engaging story since Resident Evil 2.

Praise our undead overlords, it looks like zombies are back

Freeze the trailer 31 seconds in and it's clear Johnny Juggular Biter has returned. That's right: ZOMBIES! Nothing personal, Los Illuminados, but frankly, the real stars of the series are back and we couldn't be happier.

Above: Oh hells yes

Just stop bloody changing Jill!

She's had more facelifts than Dolly Parton. Just leave the poor girl alone.

Above: Seriously, stop it

What do you want to see in Resident Evil: Revelations? Excited about the prospect of survival horror in 3D? And, like us, were you also slightly disappointed in Resi 5? As always, let us know in the comments.

    Revelations could be better than 5 because as Resident Evil goes, 5 sucked. And I find it hard to believe Revelations could outsuck resident evil 5.

    A better game than its other counter-part. That's about it. Had no real problems with Resident Evil 5, it just...wasn't Resident Evil 4, if that makes sense. Thank you for the article, gamesradar. As always, delivering the goods I'd always like to expect. :D

    At this point, I may just avoid every single AAA game coming out between now and the 3DS release just to get a 3DS (except Portal 2, it's impossible to resist that). Maybe it's because half of the triple A games I want happen to be on the 3DS (at least they are AAA in my mind).

    @elmaropwnz : Biohazard is the Japanese name of the series. If they go with traditional Resident Evil style or even RE4/RE5 controls I'll be happy. If they make it another shitty on-rails shooter I won't be. Resident Evil: Deadly Silence on the DS was great at least, so that's at least one good portable RE.

    John Woo isn't the only one who creamed his shorts.

    Bring back Tofu and I'll be happy. Oh, and make it an actual horror game this time around recaptcha: authoritative broilers
  • philipshaw - June 23, 2010 10:17 a.m.

    This does look cool but I have to agree with the changing of Jill, when I saw her in RE5 it took me a couple of minutes to figure out it was Jill
  • Spybreak8 - June 23, 2010 6:58 a.m.

    Playing RE4 right now on my PC due to it's infamous existence. God I can't stand it but I'm trying to be patient with the controls and game design. I'm excited about this title mainly hoping they'll evolve the damn franchise to modern day games!
  • darkvare - June 23, 2010 5:49 a.m.

    i hope this gets made into dlc for re5

    I don't pay attention to Resident Evil series, but I thought every normal enemy was a zombie, they look like zombies move like them too.

    While this is a great article and EXACTLY why I'm wanting this for my soon-to-be Nintendo 3DS, I will say that the closing picture of Jill shows that, compared to Chris who looks NOTHING like he did RE 1 and Code Veronica, her facial structure and body type hasn't really changed since RE 3. Closing point still remains though lol
  • hardcore_gamer1990 - June 23, 2010 12:08 a.m.

    @D0CCON - I have the same feeling man. But I only have a PS3. And I love it. Soooo....
  • Sabtos - June 22, 2010 11:49 p.m.

    Rotting zombie ass is a horrible prospect.
  • gilgamesh310 - June 22, 2010 10:46 p.m.

    Is this set b4 or after Resi 5?
  • taterboob - June 22, 2010 10:35 p.m.

    Zombies return. FINALLY! It's been far, far too long and, frankly, the Las Plagas paled in comparison.
  • D0CCON - June 22, 2010 8:56 p.m.

    I think I'd be willing to sell my PS3 to get this. I'd still keep my 360, but I would prefer this handheld over a full-fledged console.
