Yup. I reached those earlier today and decided to just take a break from the game ;p

Hey guys, what are the puzzles like in the game? The demo gave a tiny taste with the 'connect the terminals' puzzle behind the panel, but the rest was shooting and scanning.

Are they good puzzles? Numerous?

I'm looking at getting the game when the finances are back up to scratch and would hope the puzzle element is solid.

After just finished Episode 6, the only puzzle type so far has been what you saw in the demo.

It's definitely a bit disappointing since they hardly even require any though, but at the same time, the game itself has been so surprisingly amazing so far that I can overlook this shortcoming in the thought-provoking puzzle department.

So far, there's only been one puzzle that is not a "connect the terminals"-type puzzle...there have been several of those already.

Just finished the fourth chapter.

...That was creepy! This game's actually delivering pretty nicely on the spooks. The action isn't quite on the level of RE4, and the exploration isn't quite as good as Remake, but there's still a lot to like and it's definitely one of the stronger RE games I've played so far. I really enjoy the Raid Mode too, there's a lot to do there and it's pretty addictive. Kinda like a Mercenaries-style game, but possibly even better because of the longevity.

Bought a brand new pair of KILLER ear buds just for this. Game SOUNDS amazing, and, oh yeah, looks pretty good, too. I'm just now to the point where I'm fighting the comms officer. He's kicked my ass twice so far. Pretty intense stuff. I hate that I won't get to do Raid mode with you until long after you've lost interest in it due to my lack of a decent online provider. I may have to cave and crawl back to my ex. >:{

If Raid Mode is as great as it's been touted, I may be coming back to it for quite some time.

Finished Episode 3 last night. I like the way the chapters are organized, and the "episodic" feel of the game. Nice bite sized chunks, perfect for handheld gaming.

Just got up to where the demo started.

Scanning and Jessica are horrible, surprising nobody.

Overall I like the game so far. More detailed impressions as I go along.

Just beat the game. Going to start a second run-through later today, in Hell mode.

Overall, I liked it. It's a solid Resident Evil title that probably falls somewhere in the middle-of-the-pack, as far as the whole series goes. It doesn't quite live up to some of the old-school games, but I definitely prefer this to RE5. There's some definite issues that hold the game back from being great, and there are some things that the game does that are totally unnecessary and I'm not sure why the developers felt the need to force them in, but the game does a lot more right than it does wrong. The game takes some cues from the first Dead Space, and while it's not quite as dark and unnerving as that game, it brings back some of the claustrophobic and tense vibe of the original RE games that was largely missing from 4 and 5. I finished at around 13 1/2 hours, and there definitely seems to be quite a bit of replay value.

This is definitely not a half-assed RE game like the on-rails games for Wii. It's a full-fledged RE that holds up well with the rest of the series. A lot of effort clearly went into making this game, so hopefully it garners good sales. I'd like to see a Revelations 2, as well as more survival horror-focused RE games regardless of platform.

@TheBigG753Congrats, you breezed on through! I'm taking my time and enjoying it all the same. Have you checked out Raid Mode? I've heard nothing but good things about it.

I had a 25$ GameStop card and I went to pick up this game today. Apparently it is sold out there? I went to Walmart and figured I'd buy it there and use my gift card to get the circle pad pro at GameStop. It was sold out at Walmart as well.... I did not want the circle pad but I was desperate. Well I decided to go to the Kmart right next door to my gym I work out at, I was going to the gym anyway, it was no hassle. Well.. They had ONE left but they were still charging 50 bucks for it. I figured I shouldn't dump 70 plus tax in to this game so I passed on it.

I will get it down the line. I really want to get tales of the abyss next week and I have dead space one and two from gamefly to scratch my survival horror itch..

I am just shocked this game was sold out at those two places that never sell out of games.

I'm confused. If you don't want the circle pad why not just... don't get it? And then it is cheaper?

And the K-Marts by me often get games late. So maybe they were not sold out, but just didn't get it in yet? They sell out of games too though, especially since they often have awesome deals going on (though not this time.)

@Zero i apologize for the confusion. I should've phrased it differently. I was willing to buy the game at another store and use the gift card on the circle pad if I needed it, as in go back some day when I was I town to pick it up with the gift card. The problem I had was, with the gift card, I could've gotten the game for about 15 plus tax, I was desperate and willing to pay full price cash at another store, but when I saw Kmart charging 50, I made the smart decision to just save my money. I do think the game is worth it, but i couldn't bring myself to pay that much cash out of pocket. The circle pad was just something I would've bought if I bought the game at another store and felt that I needed it after playing (because I would've still had the left over gift card).

I think I made the smart move of passing for now. I still want to get this game but I need to learn to be patient.

Yeah I'm waiting too, until I find a deal.

This game is sold out everywhere in nyc, very annoying... oh well I'm glad y'all are enjoying it I'll be joining you as soon as I can find it...
Posted: 02/13/12, 04:12:31
My hunch is that they only shipped a few copies to each store due to the spine typo. The second shipment should be a big one.
Posted: 02/13/12, 05:21:10
That misprinted spine is going to be worth big bucks someday! maybe

Finished the game last night.

I thought that Assassin's Creed Revelations would be the least revelatory game to feature "revelations" in the title somewhere, but man was I wrong. I cannot believe that in a 12-13 hour playthrough there were less than 30 seconds tying this game to the RE mythos. I'm not a huge RE storyline junkie, but it feels like they didn't even try.

As far as "RE4 style" RE games go, I probably like this one a little more than 5 and less than 4, thanks to the setting. I'd have enjoyed it a lot more if the enemy design was more interesting and varied. The environments were good, though, as was the music.

I did have a beef with a couple design choices. There's a moment where you get ambushed by a strong enemy. You can run right past it into the next rooms, though, and the enemy won't follow you. However, you need to do enough damage to that enemy in the first room you encounter it in order to get it to move on, then you rinse and repeat a few times. But there's nothing that lets you know you should stay and engage the enemy, so I ended up walking around for a good 20 minutes before I went back, damaged the enemy and then forced the next scene. Pretty lousy. Then again, I suppose I should know that these days, survival horror = kill everything.

Also the scanning is annoying.

I haven't played Riot Mode at all yet, I'm looking forward to giving that a go.

That's actually really good to hear. This may be a bonafide killer app for the 3DS. Its sold out on Amazon directly, too, I noticed. Now have to go through those 3rd parties at Amazon with about a 2.50 markup. Good signs, hopefully. Game deserves every sale it gets!
