I remember the first time I saw the Resident Evil game on the shelf at my local video game store, I was intrigued. The game was nothing like I had ever seen before and the guys there really said it was something special. I got home, unwrapped that baby and popped it in.
For the next 8 hours, the game enthralled me like very few games have ever done before or since. I fondly recall jumping out of my chair the first time the zombie dogs came crashing through the window. The dialogue may have been horrible, but the atmosphere and mood of the game were second to none. I never ended up beating the game, but I had more fun not beating that game than many that I have beaten.
Many years later, and many stories later, we have a brand new chapter in the franchise. That chapter is Resident Evil: Revelations!
You're no stranger to horrors. You faced danger around every corner as you fought to solve the mystery of a grim kidnapping in Resident Evil 4. You witnessed the terror as human beings mutated into ghastly, blood-thirsty beasts in Resident Evil 5. You thought you could handle it all — but nothing could prepare you for the nightmare that awaits as you discover what really happened in the lapse between the kidnapping and the epidemic. As you board an eerie, abandoned cruise ship, the Queen Zenobia, in search of answers, you'll soon discover what secrets lurk in the waters.
First, it horrified handheld gamers on the Nintendo 3DS. Now, Resident Evil: Revelations is coming after you — through the screen of your TV — in its console debut. For the first time ever, you can live the harrowing events that take place between Resident Evil 4 and 5 in high-definition on the Xbox 360. Enhanced with immersive new sound and lighting effects, this latest installment adds an extra dose of terror to acclaimed series. And it doesn't stop there — no one said console gamers would get off that easy. It's your distinct honor to welcome a ghastly, never-before-seen enemy to the campaign, as well as an additional difficulty mode and chilling improvements to the original Nintendo 3DS Raid Mode. Access new weapons, skill sets and the opportunity to play as Hunk and other Resident Evil characters. Join Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine, along with their BSAA partners, Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat, for a grueling journey to finally discover the truth about the T-Abyss virus. Take the horror a step further on Residentevil.net, where additional content expands the action. This is no pleasure cruise, and there's no rescue boat coming to save you. It's up to you to take the helm and fight for your life.
