Resident Evil: Revelations review round-up – Survival Horror reborn?

Capcom’s Resident Evil: Revelations hits stores in the U.S. tomorrow and this Friday in Europe, offering a shiny high-definition revamp of the original 3DS horror romp. Unlike the past few games, Revelations is a definitive return to the classic Survival Horror template of old and – with a few notable exceptions – certainly does a great job at capturing that old-school Resident Evil vibe.

Aside from a new coat of paint, the console edition also boasts several new features, such as new characters for Raid Mode, a brand new enemy, residentevil.net functionality and new costumes. In other words, this is far from just a quick cut & paste port. The game itself reunites Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield in a story that bridges the gap between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5.

How did it fare with critics though? Read on to find out.
