A heads-up (well, if I can stop staring at that gif, of course).
Revelations 2 is very disappointing on a technical level. This aside, it is probably one of the most strangest Capcom/Resident evil games I've played. It tries to do some really random stuff, at times, and I honestly have to say it surprised me. There's just an overall disconnection between what's happening, what you're doing and what people are saying that I couldn't really understood what was the director's idea with this new take on Revelations. But I don't say this in the bad sense, as craziness has always been something present in Capcom games. I found it pleasant, and while the core material never really changes much, you're doing something from one moment and then do some weird shit the next one; it doesn't help (but again, in the good sense) that every structured chapter tries to be radically different from each other.
Also, there's tons of fanservice thrown at the player, with hilarious quotes coming from Barry and Claire. While they didn't make me laugh, I did chuckle a bit in happiness. They're campy, but never overstays their welcome. Also, achievement/trophies have some really bad puns added in its titles.
I was just playing the extra content (from the physical version), and I'm really surprised, as, once again, they shook the core game and added some random stuff (not to spoil anything at all, but I'm HUNTING. As in, hunting stuff for eating). Seriously, who came up with this?
You should definitively play it and give me your opinion. Also, Barry is a badass, although I more often that not had to be playing as their partner because, on a negative note, you can't find secret items unless you go playing with the side partner (which acts like a walking GENESIS from the original Revelation). A minor problem, though!
Just how bad are the technical problems, though? Bad enough to hinder gameplay, or just kind of unpleasant to look at?
Also, frame-rate drops on pre-rendered cutscenes, but hey. At least that's not gameplay!
More than that, though, I'm really looking forward to playing as The Keeper.
Well, The Assigment beaten. My total time was 2:51:41, with a total of 8 deaths. Also managed to find all the collectibles on the first go (not very difficult, to be honest, this is probably one of the rare instances where I find everything without a guide on my first try).
So...it wasn't that short, or at least, it didn't feel that short to me. I enjoyed my time with it, and it has some nice twists and connections to the main game. Also a nice middle-boss sequence, albeit way too easy. Mikami wasn't kidding when he said everything would be more stealth-oriented, and while that's a bit disappointing to me, everything else was ace, so I can't complain.
Given its lenght, I'd suggest you go beat it now! I'm going to try KURAYAMI mode, which I'm wondering what is it about, because I doubt it's the same as AKUMU mode.
I'll let you discover it by yourself!
I have to say, I didn't like it quite as much because it tries to do too much and loses focus, yet at the same time it feels more restrictive. In the original there were just two characters who were exactly the same, but you could choose which mask you wanted to wear and thus which bonus you wanted. This time there are many characters, but the way it's done you actually end up with less choice about how to tackle the level.
But that said, it's still very good! I found myself liking it more toward the end than I did in the beginning/middle, so it may grow on me some more once I start trying to chase high scores.
