Resident Evil: Revelations

Developer: Capcom

Platforms: Nintendo 3DS

Release Date: February 7, 2012

The first Resident Evil game on the 3DS was a bit of a mess. Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D was a nice distraction, but it didn't deliver the true survival-horror experience that fans were expecting. Thankfully this year saw Revelations' release and boy did it do just what we wanted.

Capturing all the elements that define the Resident Evil experience and condensing them on to a handheld is no easy task, but it's made slightly easier with the inclusion of the (sometimes awkward) Circle Pad Pro. It also doesn't hurt that this is by far one of the best looking games on Nintendo's system, putting the 3D effect to good use.
