I completed it a few hours ago, quite enjoyed it, specifically Barry's segment. Moira unfortunately doesn't really carry her weight very much and seems kind of useless for the most part, whereas Natalia is kind of great! Has her own 'detective vision' equivalent and can smash zombies heads in with bricks. Barry's segment is also significantly more atmospheric, and using Natalia to spot the Revenant's weakspot to then shoot through it as Barry is a fun dynamic, especially when there's multiple of them. Really cool to see them reintroducing the Uroborus stuff from RE5 again, rather than inventing yet another virus strain or something. The twist that Barry's segments are 6 months ahead of Claire's was pretty cool and has me intrigued to learn more. Some funny throwbacks to the Barry's classic sandwich and master of unlocking lines, too. Story overall isn't half bad either thus far, with the voice acting and dialogue being at the right level of ham & cheese.
Shooting's pretty fun too and is a vast improvement over both RE6 and the first Revelations. Movement takes a little getting used to, but only because of how different it is to every other RE shooter. Currently writing up a blog anywhoo and I live-streamed my whole playthrough of it! Rarely got any views or anything of course, but I enjoyed it all the same and was glad to get it all captured.
Raid mode is pretty great too and a significant improvement from the original. Just a lot more going on regarding character skills and variety of weapons. Also, kinda funny how this is like an amalgamation of so many other Capcom games. Lots of RE6's animations carry over, as do some sound effects, and many of the Gestures in Raid mode are taken from Lost Planet 2.
''Now who's the master of unlocking!''
