Zadzooks: Resident Evil: Revelations review (Xbox 360)
This shooting gallery allows either a solo or pair of players (online and offline) to cooperatively tackle waves of enhanced enemies on almost two-dozen stages with more characters control including the addition of a Hunk soldier and human form of Rachel.
Raid mode is quite the feast with plenty of weapons, levels of customization, the accumulation of Battle Points currency and other goodies to keep players interested in working through the missions and offers a complement to the already time-consuming campaign of Resident Evil: Revelations.
Note: Resident Evil: Revelations is also available for the Wii U with some extra content and functionality tied to the GamePad and Miiverse. For the dozen or so folks who actually bought Nintendo’s nearly irrelevant entertainment console, it’s worth checking out — considering the smattering of games available for the system.
Parental advice: The ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board), after looking through a maggot-filled carcass for a key and watching Jill Valentine’s body get shredded by the disgusting Scagdead (with blood splattering on the screen), decided to label this game “M” and that stands for mature — adults 17 years and older need only take part in Resident Evil: Revelations. So don’t let your 14–year-old convince you that “I’m just running and gunning around a classic monster movie.” Killing really horrific enemies and bosses keeps the story progressing, and it’s a moaning, groaning and intensely bloody affair throughout.
