The fear that was originally brought to players in Resident Evil Revelations on the Nintendo 3DS system returns redefined for home consoles complete with high quality HD visuals, enhanced lighting effects and an immersive sound experience. Furthermore, the home console version will deliver additional content including a terrifying new enemy, extra difficulty mode and improvements to Raid Mode such as new weapons, skill sets and the opportunity to play as Hunk and other characters from the series. Raid Mode, which was first introduced to the series in the original version of Resident Evil Revelations, sees gamers play online in co-op mode or alone in single player taking on the hordes of enemies across a variety of missions whilst leveling up characters and earning weapon upgrades. The critically acclaimed survival horror title takes players back to the events that took place between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, revealing the truth about the T-Abyss virus. Resident Evil Revelations features series favorites Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, plus their respective BSAA partners - Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat. The action begins on board a supposedly abandoned cruise ship, the 'Queen Zenobia', where horrors lurk around every corner before players head for the mainland and the devastated city of Terragrigia. With limited ammo and weapons available, the race is on to survive the horror of Resident Evil Revelations.

Nintendo Wii U runs games in huge action scenes or small rooms at a solid, outstanding, sharp colorful unbreaking 60FPS at 1080P. This is something the Playstation, and Xbox 360 never did. (note - not every developer takes their time to learn the secrets behind the consoles power). One rule is clear at this point in the game though, Japanese companies at least like Capcom, and 100% of all Nintendo games released thus far have the best looking graphics any console has ever been able to pull off.
Playing in 3D was cool, but I now play on a 300 inch short throw projector, and it makes the dark hall ways and surprise battles that this game did a good job of refocusing on, and I personally choose Wii Revelations over my own copy of 3DS revelations. I need to see things, bigger, clearer, and really let this system flex it's muscle. Last point - this game unlike most, allows you the decisions whether you want to play on the small handheld screen, the TV screen, both, or combine them so that the handheld has things like maps you'll need.
Basic Synopsis: Taking place between Resident Evil 4 and 5, the story revolves around a bio-terrorist group known as Veltro who has seemingly created a virus known as the T-Abyss virus with the intent to spread it across the world's oceans. In addition, RE veteran lead Jill Valentine is searching for her missing colleague, Chris Redfield; whose last location was somewhere in the Mediterranean Sea. A whirlpool of deception follows as the BSAA delves deeply into the mysteries exuding from the eerily quiet Queen Zenobia cruise ship, filled with horrifying creatures ready to spring surprise attacks at any place at any time.
With that in mind, the actual story is very interesting, if not confusing at times. Still, it keeps you guessing and is well worth experiencing, so I won't spoil anything else regarding it. Now for the good stuff:
Technical Stability: The Wii U version of Resident Evil: Revelations features the most direct conversion from 3DS to console experience of the game. The touch-based puzzles are present here with the sole exception of one particular element but it isn't much to be concerned about. In terms of technical stability, the game performs just fine on the Wii U. It looks lovely to the eyes and sounds lovely as well. In addition, you can play the game off the TV and have access to Miiverse, which allows you to display screenshots if you're into that sort of thing. On a fundamental stability standpoint, the game is solid on Wii U.
Fun Factor vs Price: If you've bought and played the game on the 3DS when it first came out, then you'll already be aware of how fun the game is to play. Between the campaign mode and Raid Mode, there is plenty to enjoy in Revelations. The price of the game is also less than most console priced titles as well, an additional incentive to purchase it. For those that got the game when the price was reduced for the initial period, you would have basically got the game for the same price that it was on the 3DS. Even with the raise in price, the game offers enough content and enjoyable gameplay to make it worth the price tag.
Replay Value: Revelations is pretty packed with replay value. In addition to Raid Mode, the game mode which features separate areas of the game filled with enemy waves to fight through for points and new weapons and gained levels, the main campaign has multiple difficulties to play, including the new Infernal mode. To those not aware, Infernal mode offers a sharp raise in difficulty to test the skills of the true experts of Resident Evil. There's also a new enemy type to be mindful and it is as disturbing as you may have seen it. Include the prospect of online co-op in Raid Mode and you have a full package of content you can play for a long time.
Final Word: I loved Revelations on the 3DS and the Wii U version gave me the same wonderful experience as well as more content with it. Between the new difficulty, the new characters to play in Raid Mode, plus just being able to play the game again on a larger screen, it is definitely a title worth having as well as playing. If you are looking for a modern Resident Evil game with that old-school feel and atmosphere, you definitely want to play Revelations on any console of choice. However, if you want that direct conversion from 3DS to console, I would suggest playing the Wii U version. Plus, it's another title to add to your Wii U game library.
In the words of Dante: "Abandon Hope, All Ye Who Enter Here..." but it's hard to when a game is this fun.
