No patch then. Hopefully there's nothing fucked up with this port.


Right. Hopefully Capcom did their QA on it man.


Do me a favor.

Since you are going to play this first please see if the audio from the start of chapter 3 is not screwed up. On the PS3 version some dialogue from Morgan and O'brian was cut off.

Hopefully it got fix here.


I'll keep my ears open in that section for sure.

I'm considering buying Rule of Rose again, but man, have you seen what it costs on eBay? My sister ruined the booklet. Revelations is one game I'll certainly buy again, but it's gonna have to wait. At least it's so cheap. Just £20 or less now.

I hope they don't just reuse textures though.

That this is a true upscale.

Capcom says it will be:

Set between the events of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, Revelations for PS4 and Xbox One includes all available Raid Mode DLC, a “crisp” 1080p resolution, and increased environmental detail and refined creature movements.


Also I know many have complained that the laser sight on the gun didn't match with the aiming.
I never quite noticed that myself but will be sure to let you guys know.

Might look a little better based on all the original renderings but I doubt it's going to be that much better, to be honest. It looks alright on PC right along, which already runs at 1080p. Can't see it looking much different than that.

I haven't had much of a chance to play the game and it doesn't look like I will anytime soon (sorry Vito) but here's a not so good review from PlayStation Lifestyle /-:

http://www.playstationlifestyle.net/2017/08/29/resident-evil-revelations-ps4-review/#/slide/1

Originally released for the Nintendo 3DS in 2012, Resident Evil Revelations (née Revelaitons) was a return to form for Capcom’s survival horror series. In contrast to the action-oriented Resident Evil 6, Revelations focused more on horror and ammo conservation. It was a perfect way for Capcom to serve both audiences, and in the years since it has been ported to a wide array of consoles. Now it’s received another round of ports, with it landing on PlayStation 4 for the first time.
The meat and potatoes of the experience can be found in Revelations‘ campaign. Despite featuring a sort of strange episodic structure, this is a full-length Resident Evil game that stars Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield as they explore a supposedly abandoned cruise ship called the Queen Zenobia. It’s very much in the style of classic RE, as players will be scrounging for ammo, and taking on some ooze-filled enemies.
Most of the action will feel familiar to players (especially those that have played previous incarnations of the game), but it does feature a pretty cool Metroid Prime-style scanning device. This is especially helpful on higher difficulties as it can find ammo that is otherwise hidden, and players can gain health items for scanning enough enemies. I’m not even sure the pseudo-science of the series can explain how that happens, but nonetheless it’s a cool mechanic that helps separate it from the many survival horror games on PS4.

The PlayStation 4 port has been advertised as “the best-looking version of the game to date” and that’s definitely true. From a graphical standpoint it’s shocking how much the 3DS title has been able to hold up at a 1080p resolution. That said, players will definitely notice that this wasn’t designed to be on a PS4 at first. Some textures look rough, and there are enough low-quality models that pop up throughout that it ends up detracting from the experience as a whole.
While the graphics are generally solid (and occasionally underwhelming), I only have praise for Revelations’ audio design. Despite never making me squirm in my seat like Resident Evil 7 did, the excellent ambient noise always put me on edge. It may be five years old, but it still manages to pack a punch as far as a horror game.
The biggest change I noticed was that I couldn’t aim my gun for the life of me. Clunky controls aren’t new to the survival horror genre (trust me, they’re well acquainted), but Revelations handled great on the 3DS (at least as one of the five people who owned a Circle Pad Pro). There’s something about the way it handles with an analog stick that felt arbitrarily stiff to me, and it made me waste a lot of ammo while fighting off the gross creatures. Sadly, there’s no way to adjust the sensitivity for aiming, so I was forced to stick with it. I got used to it over time (and had to play at a slower pace to really line up my shots), but it definitely had an impact on my enjoyment.

Beyond the campaign, Resident Evil Revelations also features a Raid mode that allows players to replay through levels of the campaign. It’s not a straight shot, though, as there are multiple new characters to use, remixed enemy layouts, and a progression system unique to the mode. Those who dig the action side of RE will definitely want to hop online and devise strategies with another player. I don’t quite like it as much as the Mercenaries mode in past games, but it’s a fun way to spend some nights with a buddy.
Raid mode is also the home of the biggest content addition to the game which is a new level called The Ghost Ship: Chaos. Unfortunately, the added content isn’t unlocked from the get go, so even if you’ve played through Raid mode before you’ll have to do it again to see the new stage. It’s a cool bonus, but one that most players won’t see. Additionally, the game features four separate controller schemes (yet no button remapping), so if you want to use tank controls in Revelations then knock yourself out. No, seriously. Knock yourself out since you’re clearly a masochist.
My hang-ups with the aiming aside, the PlayStation 4 version of Resident Evil Revelations is the best version of the survival horror outing. The problem is that it’s 2017. It’s been over five years since Revelations (or I guess it was technically “Revelaitons” then) released on Nintendo 3DS, and what was once a technical marvel is an outdated-looking title on current consoles. Capcom has done a nice job cleaning it up, but it’s still ultimately a handheld title that was designed to be viewed on a 240p screen. That won’t matter to the die hard Resident Evil fans who plan on picking up the same game for the third time, but it’s becoming harder to recommend to newcomers as time passes.

Pluses:
+Great audio design keeps it scary.
+Graphics have held up for the most part.
+Raid mode is good fun.

Negatives:
-Aiming feels off.
-Some textures really show their age.
-Not much is new for returning players.

I see nothing wrong there. If the aiming is the same as the PS3 version then the reviewer just sucks at the game.

STARS_Tyrant already confirmed there is no audio issue anymore on chapter 3. This appears to be the definitive console version.

Yes they can, lol.

Saw some other reviewers talking about the aiming too.

It would be interesting to hear STARS Tyrants thoughts on that.

I remember him saying how he felt the aiming in the PS3 version was off.

I don't recall myself, but I heard more then once that the laser pointer doesn't go where you aim.

Anyways, hopefully I get a chance to play some of it today.

I hope it runs great at 60 frames per second, from what I read it sounds like it does.

That's a win for me.

I won't be getting this version for a while, but I will eventually.
I REALLY love this game.
