Harder, better, faster, stronger

Last week we witnessed the beginning of the new Resident Evil, this week we pick up from where we left the four protagonists at the end of the season premiere.

Contemplation sees Barry Burton still shaken from the news that the radio message from his daughter, Moira, that drew him to the island is six months old, and according to Natalia Moira is dead, but leaves him now even more determined to track her down, while Natalia has an encounter with a figure from her past that leaves her…

Claire and Moira’s focus is to escape the penitentiary, but they’ll need to overcome more than just a rusty lock and a few enemies. They continue to be bugged by the mysterious villain in an intriguing story that’s getting more interesting by the minute.

Contemplation is just what we need its bigger, better harder, faster and you’ll need to be stronger. This episode has a much faster pace, and even a chase scene, tough boss battles, and even fewer supplies than episode 1. Where Episode 1 was a bit too easy Contemplation makes up for it, with hard boss battles and new enemies that are harder to kill and come in greater numbers than before.

This time Co-op plays an more important role than before, with even more character specific abilities. The downside in Co-op is the lack of physical strength in your partners, Moira is no way close to being a badass that kills zombies, she doesn’t use guns and don’t want to us them. This makes her fragile and tough to play with, and I don’t like my women weak, it’s true that she can deal some damage with her crowbar, but not nearly enough to be a badass. Moira can be used as bait, but only works out well if she’s player controlled, so grab a buddy and play together, that’s the best way to go in Revelations 2.

Raid mode
Raid Mode had some upgrades as well, with new levels and, two new characters to play, Pedro and Gabe, the game mode gets even better and better. Raid Mode is one of the biggest assets in Revelations 2, and with every episode comes even more content.
