This is an early impressions piece based on playing through the first episode of Resident Evil Revelations 2. We'll have a full review once all episodes are live in the middle of March.
Capcom's classic Resident Evil franchise returns, manifesting on current-gen consoles in the form of two releases in the first three months of 2015. First up, we're in remaster territory, with a full HD rendition of 2002's Resident Evil remake - enough to tide over fans until the March launch of the next major entry, Resident Evil Revelations 2. But to what extent is the more powerful Xbox One and PlayStation 4 hardware actually utilised in this brace of titles?
The recent direction of Capcom's Resident Evil franchise has become as tormented as one of its monsters. The series now has a split personality: sometimes happy to be a quiet and shuffling creature of lingering menace, but at other times suddenly much louder and brash in character, concerned more with action than atmosphere.
