TGS '14 - Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Shares the Scares - Preview

gamrFeed - Fri, 09/19/2014 - 22:15

Resident Evil (Or Biohazard as it is known in Japan) Revelations 2 is seriously scary. I played a short portion of the game on the Xbox One at the Tokyo Game Show. Before the demo began it asked me whether I preferred to play on Casual or Normal mode. I was unclear about the difference between them but I chose normal. Series mainstay Claire Redfield is joined by the young Moira and the demo takes place in what appears to be an abandoned prison. The two women try to obtain a ring of keys attached to the dead, hanging body of a security guard. The guard’s body plunges to the ground down below, forcing the pair to find a way to retrieve the keys.

The first thing that struck me was that this really does not look like a 'next gen' game. Resident Evil is one of the most graphically driven series out there and this is certainly not how I imagined it would look in its debut on a new generation of consoles. The graphics are far from poor but it felt like I was playing an Xbox 360 title (which, tellingly, the game will also be available for). There was also a graininess to the graphics that appeared to be added as an aesthetic choice in order to further the horror atmosphere. During a cinematic early on, the camera changed perspectives as if the two characters were being watched on grainy security video, which went a long way in upping the creepiness factor.

Once the pair made their way to the dead body, Claire searched for the keys but only managed to find the officer’s gun instead. By holding the Y button I switched control over to Moira. Moira suggested that perhaps the keys snagged on something above as they fell. Equipped with a flashlight, I aimed the beam at a shiny object hooked on a pipe. Because guns solve everything, Claire shoots the keys down. They then decide to double back to try opening a locked door.
