As is my understanding this game is not out in the US until some time next week or even later? It was released in the UK a couple of days ago and I happen to have a copy, I even have the 3DS Circle Pro Pad. I've played the game for 2 hours now so I am happy to answer any questions you may have on the game.
Ask me anything about Resident Evil Revelations.
The game was about 7-8 hours long with me. But then there is the new game+ thing with the hell difficulty, the mission/achievement stuff for unlocking things and the co-op Raid mode with RPG elements to try and complete, level up, get better gear, etc. (though things are seperate, gear in raid mode dosn't carry over to story). Raid mode is 20 missions, and a bonus one on the basic difficulty, then a further 20 that you unlock for finishing them. So a decent amount of content really. Hope Raid mode is in RE6 rather than a mercenaries mode again.
How good is the Raid mode? Does it feel like a fully featured game mode, complete with plenty of stuff to do, or is it just some one-off thing that you have some fun with and then forget about? EDIT: Nevermind, the guy above me answered my Raid mode questions.
Also, how are the unlockables? Are there any? Is there a crazy huge list a la RE5?
Finally, controls with and without the Circle Pad. I saw the Quick Look and it didn't really sell it to Brad, but I'm wondering how others feel. Is it worth the extra money or can it be satisfactorily played without the Pad?
Finally finally, do you think this game is close to, or on par with, RE4 and 5? Worth buying a 3DS for? No system is worth it for just one game but I'd like to have a big one to look forward to.
- Not tried Raid mode.
- Not really played that far to say that.
- Controls without the circle pad not so great, controls with quite good.
- I haven't played enough yet, but RES4 and RES5 are so far better, only because there on a console though. This game has certain elements of older RES games as so far there has been a bit of backtracking.
