1UP's Favorite Games of 2012 - RE: Revelations

Excerpt: Like any year in video game history, 2012 had its share of interesting surprises, but the one involving Capcom's fan-favorite Resident Evil series may have shocked me the most. If I could travel back and place a bet on which of 2012's three RE-related projects would deliver a satisfying survival horror experience -- one that felt in line with the original game -- I would've placed the safe bet on Resident Evil 6. Judging from some early trailers and Captivate impressions, how could I not? And, somehow, it turns out I would have chosen wrong. Resident Evil Revelations, a portable experience for Nintendo's 3DS, pulled off an unfathomable upset over its console counterparts.

Resident Evil: Revelations wins “Best TPS of 2012”!

Resident Evil: Revelations wins “Best Third Person Shooter of 2012”!

"Resident Evil has certainly enjoyed a roller coaster of all time highs and lows throughout the years. The fourth entry, despite being one of the best reviewed and beloved games of all time, had its fair share of detractors complaining about the series' departure from its strictly survival horror roots. That little tidbit of information is very important because it explains precisely why Resident Evil: Revelations is such an astonishingly good game.

Blending the best jump scares and creeping horror from the first three entries of the franchise with the impeccable action oriented perspective and controls from the second half of the series means that this is arguably the best of both worlds, and that not only surprised but greatly impressed us. Of course, the fantastic visuals and moody audio mixed with the sheer amount of content and addictive multiplayer means that not only is this a great handheld game, but it would've been an excellent main entry in the franchise."

RUMOR: Resident Evil Revelations coming to Wii U ?
