Acid Rounds: Resident Evil Revelations (3DS)


Acid rounds is a semi regular, irregular spot on TGAM for games we have beasted from start to finish.

Richie: I guess this is a Resident evil game about turning things? Does the square crank or the Valve handle feature profoundly in this one? What about the fan favourite Hex Crank?
Cunzy: Why haven't you played this game yet, you own it on at least two platforms?

Richie: Oh "Revelations", not "Revolutions" What does this reveal then? Is there a nude cheat?
Cunzy: Why haven't you played this game yet, you own it on at least two platforms?

Richie: So beasted it then? Did you Catch 'em all?
Cunzy: Why haven't you played this game yet, you own it on at least two platforms?


Richie: Would you recommend this one as a gift?
Cunzy: Okay, I was dedicated to the joke but I feel I actually need to make the case for you to play this game but also you have missed the boat to play the best version of it. I really enjoy both Revelations games. Yes, the episodic thing is a bit goofy and I think already kids won't understand why this was a thing but, if you were to ask me, which you sort of have done, I'd say this was Resident Evil but more arcadey. The plot is the plot of a Resident Evil game so make sure you're sat down when the big company turns out to be an evil one but Jill's back! Chris is back! Why is the 3DS version the best version and why have you missed out on the best version of this game? The answer is Raid Mode. Although I enjoyed Mercenaries, I was never that good at it and didn't invest the time to learn the layouts of every level. Raid Mode is slightly different in that it isn't a score vs time mode, it's almost a LOOTER SHOOTER. Level up your character, get higher level gear and customise with parts. Rinse, repeat and slightly increase the numbers everywhere. What really made it for me on the 3DS though was the StreetPass integration which would generate Raid Mode missions for the Raid Mode currency and weapon parts plus it was always a giggle hunting down an enemy called 'Mum' or 'Richie' for rewards. Obviously, StreetPasses are much much rarer these days so this added extra isn't available to new players. For me this was an example of when a game and the platform came together perfectly and I not only beasted but MASTERED Resident Evil Revelations. I'm playing through the sequel now and although it has all the same parts, I'm enjoying Raid Mode but it's less the daily thing to look forward to as it was in this game's heyday.

THIS is why I'm angry you've not touched it Richie.
