    Stunning to look at, questionable decisions

    Random chicken scratch I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with this port after the soupy textures and immersion breaking pop-in of 2016's DOOM. Fortunately, this game consistently performs on par with, or better than the "Day One" copies of RE: Revelations on previous consoles. If I can pass along just one word of advice: ADJUST AIM SENSITIVITY BEFORE GAME BEGINS. -It's so sensitive that while holding right on the left thumbstick, your character will pull off a 720 every second. That being my only gripe with the gameplay, and it's easy to switch using an intuitive menu system. PROS: 1 - Far and away the best argument for all games on Switch, especially Resident Evil, is the ability to sleep the console while playing any game and instantly resuming the game following a push of the power button. 2 - The Switch in handheld configuration, will display at a solid 720p/30 for over half of the game's story. Only slowing down slightly when 4 or greater enemies are on screen. 3 - Even with the single (1) blower fan spinning fast enough to cool a custom-built Nvidia Tegra X1 under 100% load (the X1 is based on the older and less power efficient Maxwell architecture when compared to the current-gen Pacsal), the fan has been meticulously designed to resonate at frequencies that humans can barely perceive. CONS: 1 - The inclusion of motion controls implemented on top of a game designed with no practical uses for motion control aside from the shoot (waggle left JoyCon)-shoot-punch (waggle right JoyCon). etc... 2 - The onscreen UI does not show which action each face button triggers. You can easily start inhaling green herbs through accidental presses, then be left with nothing on a boss. -MOST ANNOYING/CONFUSING PART- 3 - The cartridge only has Revelations 1. In order to play the second game, you are required to buy a micro SD card due to the game download file containing 23.6GB. That's the second largest game currently available for the switch. Revelations 1 is only 12GB. The Cartridge should have had the inverse.

    Rev1 meh but Rev2 is great couch co-op

    As an old school RE fan, Rev1 didn't do much for me, but there is some nice scenery in the game that is reminiscent of the old mansion. The enemies are uninspired except for a few token bosses and the game play is something else. RE has always had tank controls, but the movement in this one seems very outdated and awkward, and the dodge mechanic works like RE3, only way worse and too unresponsive. Rev2 improves on pretty much everything except the environments, which are a bit boring except for a couple of parts. My fiancée has never played a RE game before but she loves playing the partners. Raid mode Co-op is pretty fun as well, but co-op almost feels like cheating sometimes. A pro controller plus a set of joycons or other standard controller is recommended over trying to split the joycons with two people. The joycons are just too tiny, and you'll lose the ability to shoot and move at the same time because you pretty much have to revert to old school RE controls with them.

    Not So Bad

    I used to own a 3DS and was pretty impressed by the demo for Resident Evil Revelations on that system. Unfortunately, I soon lost my 3DS and never got a chance to play the full game. I was pretty excited when I found out I would get a chance to finally play through the game on my Switch. Game played well and I would recommend it to fans of the series and also someone looking to get into RE. I was a bit skeptical at first, about having a huge title like Revelations 2 eat up so much space on my SD card. But I have to say it isn't so bad. The rest of the games I have downloaded are small so one or 2 large games aren't so bad, but I can't make a habit of plopping AAA titles onto memory. The proposition turns into budget issue quickly, especially since the Switch only has ~27 GB of ROM to begin with and U3 SD cards aren't cheap...

    Two Games, One Price

    One thing to be noted is that this is a collection of *both* Revelations games, plus all of the DLC - and a couple Switch-exclusive mini-games as well. The first game is represented on the cartrridge, but the second comes in the form of a download code to be used in the eShop at the tune of over 26GB, so a microSD card is required if you do so. Performance-wise, it plays well on the Switch, and I'd say that Revelations 2 even runs a tad smoother than on PS4. Both games are good in their own right and makes this a great collection. It'd be perfect, though, if both games had its own physical cartridge.

    Great RE experience on Switch

    So far since playing the game I must say that I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I've played both previously on PS3 but I definitely feel the Switch version is one of the best. Controls feel right at home and are responsive. Both games look great as well with Revelations 1 slightly edging out 2. Part of that however is because they look different due to having different tones as games. Revelations 1 plays more like an action game while 2 gives you more of the survival horror element. Raid mode on both games is fun and addictive as well.

    Great coop experience, small complaints

    I really enjoyed playing Revelations 2 coop with my friend. They did a great job porting the game over, with generally smooth performance the whole time we played. I do wish that they had put Revelations 2 on the cartridge and made Revelations 1 the downloadable game though... Revelations 2 was over 20gbs, and it would have been great to have the option to have it on the cartridge as it was the main reason we bought a physical copy of this game

    I've never gotten into the Resident Evil series, but this collection has been a lot of fun. These games definitely made my skin crawl playing them. The game play was a lot of fun and the graphics looked great! I was especially impressed with Revelations 2 with the local 2 player co-op. There is also an online multiplayer raid mode for both games that you can get even more play time out of. The only downside to this collection is that only Revelations 1 is on the cart. Revelations 2 is download only.

    I played the original on the 3ds and fell in love right away. However, some of the stages on the 3ds were hard to navigate due to the small screen size. That problem has been eradicated with the crossover to the Switch. Playing it on a tv has been wonderful. I suggest any Resident Evil fan with a Switch to scoop this up and lose a week of your life to playing this game. It include both Revelations and Revelations part 2. Great price for a great duo game pack.
