Capcom released 3 gameplay videos for Resident Evil Revelations 2, each showing various functions like how to use a flashlight.
Some videos hurt the game more than help it. In this case, after watching the videos, I’m convinced that Resident Evil Revelations 2 will feature NOTHING NEW. Same old gameplay with the same old interface with the same old same old. Swinging a crowbar or a knife is the same action going back to way back when. Likewise with changing weapons, characters, and shooting zombies. Evading and strafing is like late ‘90s Shadows of the Empire feel.
And the graphics aren’t killer new-gen either. A box explodes when hit with a crowbar like they did in the old N64 Zelda games. Box don’t bust up like that. And the Zombies move like Gene Kelly on the ballroom floor. Yes, Kelly was graceful, zombies are NOT supposed to be graceful but they side-step oh so smoothly.
I can understand those Zelda games having a gameplay videos to show off its innovative target-lock system. Or another N64 game, Goldeneye and its multiplayer. But Revelations 2…. I love the old school Resident Evil and had I not known what I know now, I might have picked up Revelations 2 just on the nostalgia factor.
Revelations 2 is out early 2015 on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PC.
