Ain't no thing like me, except me. I am the biggest half behind this website and love to write about my deep love for fighting games, (J)RPG's and Destiny. Really do not like Call of Duty and absolutely love pizza.
Finally the wait is over, did we get our well-deserved end in this thrilling tale? Resident Evil Revelations 2 reaches its end with episode 4 Metamorphosis.
The last chapter of Revelations is the most serious of the four, and also in my opinion the worst when it comes to the story. Where I liked the approach of not over complicating the story in previous episodes, episode 4 does it all in one go. All the plot twists and well worked out story in previous episodes all lead to the conclusion of Revelations 2, and in doing so Metamorphosis does the one thing it didn’t do in previous episodes, which I think was the reason the previous episodes were that good, over complicating the story.
Capcom tried to explain all the complexities of the story in this episode and in doing so created a vortex of “WTF” moments and deep “sighs”. Not only do we find an open diary revealing our villainous mastermind’s innermost thoughts, there’s a manifesto lying about in her lair titled ‘Hatred of ??’ followed by reasons why she hates??. Resident Evil has never been subtle, which I think is part of its charm, but this is too obvious for me. I can’t help but feel that Revelations 2 deserved a better conclusion.
Thank God for gameplay, Claire’s and Moira’s story is this time by far the best part of the episode, battling invisible enemies while you trying to escape and even feeding us more story as we go. Where in previous chapters Barry and Natalia were my favorite this time their part is a lot worse, we have our huge standout and that was great, but besides the fight on the crane, the whole chapter was a huge mess, killing the same enemies over and over and walking back and forth felt more like a torture than a great experience, not even close to the like experience I had with previous chapters.
Resident Evil Revelations 2 has 2 endings a “Good” and a “Bad” ending, both of them leave room for a sequel, which I think is a great thing, The more the merrier. Both endings still work out a lot of the questions raised in the episode, and by answering them, or at least, quite a few of them, still leaves us with a satisfying end. The two bonus episodes, ‘Little Miss’ and ‘The Struggle’ fill in further gaps, and in doing so, gives us even more story and gameplay.
One of the best things of Revelations 2 is the Raid Mode and since episode 4 is out you now have access to all of the Raid Mode Content and this gives Revelations a great replay value and offers so much more than just the story.
