As we get closer to the end of Resident Evil Revelations 2, there have been a few consistencies across all the episodes so far, and I have no doubt that the same will be applied to the final episode next week. Instead of explaining it all again, I’ll be doing a quick bullet point of things that are still relevant to Resident Evil Revelations 2: Judgment.
- The replay value is still really high.
- Moira is warming up to me.
- The bosses and where they are at is still predictable.
- Raid Mode is still a lot of fun as it gets more challenging.
This week’s episode, Resident Evil Revelations 2: Judgment focuses more on puzzles than the last few episodes. There are few that will take trial and error to get them right. Claire had the best part in this episode, while Barry’s side was one long puzzle. Barry moves so much in the game while not really moving along on the island. Compared to Claire, Barry’s half reminded me of Episode One, Resident Evil Revelations 2: Penal Colony, where nothing happens and there wasn’t much to do. You do know why Moira won’t touch a gun and thankfully it was justified. Both Moira and Natalia had more to do this time around as switching between characters become a bigger part of the gameplay.
In the past episodes, it would take me about 40 minutes or so to complete each part, but this time it took me 80 minutes to beat Clair and almost an hour to beat Barry’s. This is a much longer episode and when you think it’s almost over, it keeps going, especially on Claire’s side. While it’s not puzzles all the time, the enemy’s placement is becoming more erratic and they are more likely to ambush you. Resident Evil Revelations 2 became more challenging because of this. Ambushes keeps the suspense going and keeps the game from becoming too boring. Unfortunately, you can still see when the bosses are coming from a mile away. Barry has the most worthless boss in the season so far, while Claire had the most frustrating boss. Judgment felt like it took the best aspects of Penal Colony and Resident Evil Revelations 2: Contemplation and fused them together. Barry’s act keeps it from being better than Contemplation, but it’s still better than Penal Colony.
The Verdict 7.0 out of 10
Resident Evil Revelations 2: Judgement is a decent episode with a few issues within its bosses and some of its puzzles. The puzzles were a nice change of pace, but it was not enough to help make it better than Contemplation. With its final episode next week, it’ll be interesting to see if Resident Evil Revelations 2 was worth its episodic format.
