As is the Capcom tradition, this game has been released before and will likely be released again. Originally, Resident Evil: Revelations was released for the Nintendo 3DS and an HD version was released for Xbox 360 (and other consoles and PC) a few years after that. And now, a few years after that, weíre seeing it released again for the Xbox One, the version Iím playing for this review.
Youíll be spending your time in various environments such as an abandoned ship, urban buildings, and frozen mountains. The characters such as Jill, Chris, Parker, and Jessica are all nicely detailed. In the end, itís hard to pick out any details that give away its handheld origins.
Itís not the most gorgeous game, but then, thereís no evidence of a quick job to convert to HD. In other words, there aren't a bunch of blocky objects that have a nice texture slapped on, or strange, flat objects with no depth. Still, it lacks some final touches that we normally see in the console releases. Maybe we should see reflections on some surfaces or some additional shadow and texture - just small touches that could really make certain areas pop. All the rest is classic RE, with creepy music, growling and scraping noises, and lots of icky, slimy sounds from all the mutated monsters. The voice acting in this game is pretty good too, on par with the major console releases from the last couple decades.
