Resident Evil: Revelations. Capcom (2013) Xbox 360

Originally released on portable devices in 2012, Revelations got a proper full release on home consoles in 2013.

In a weird way, I quite enjoy being proven wrong about games. Capcom are responsible for over half of my personal top 50 games of all time, and this includes most Resident Evil games. However, none of Capcom’s games released after 2005 feature in my list. That isn’t to say EVERYTHING Capcom released since 2005 is crap, but a lot of it is. With specific regards to the Resident Evil series I won’t mince my words, Resident Evil 5 was crap, and Resident Evil 6 was an incoherent bag of wank, so jumping into a semi spin-off set between 5 and 6 I was not exactly expecting much.

Resident Evil 6. Capcom (2012) Xbox 360

I LOVE the Resident Evil series probably even more than the Final Fantasy series and when Resident Evil 5 came out I was so hyped it was ridiculous.

It didn’t just jump the shark, it jumped the shark in a volcano.

Resident Evil - Code Veronica (PAL) - Front

I previously reviewed Code Veronica X on the GameCube, and thought it was finally time to come and play the “proper” version of the game. Continue reading

Resident Evil, Capcom (1996) PlayStation

Resident Evil PAL cover

This is the ORIGINAL release of a Game that not only spawned (to date) over 20 sequels, but currently has 3 remakes.

So, for a game to get 4 remakes, it must either be one of the best games ever, or a deeply flawed gem in need of a polish.

So what is it? Continue reading

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles. Capcom. (2007) Nintendo Wii

Resident Evil The Umbrella Chronicles

To be honest, I am not very sure why I am reviewing this. I was on holiday, I only had my Wii,  had finished Resident Evil 4, and I needed a game to play.

I wasn’t expecting much and I was STILL disappointing.
