The latter isn't seen often, but it basically lets you Cross-Save between the Wii U and 3DS versions, which is a nice feature — though of course, it's not a Cross-Buy game, so you'll have to purchase both. While Remote Play is always appreciated, the …

  1. You can add poor controls as a negative on that list because that’s the
    case without the circle pad pro.

  2. This game was great. Enjoyed playing through it and beating it.
    The best Resident Evil game is still Resident Evil 4.
    RE4 never gets old.

  3. “propelled the series to new heights” – Hello, what drugs are you taking
    sir. 

  4. Loved this game. great graphics, controls, everything. 

  5. “lame story”

    damn…. lol

    think about gettin this, right now, lol

    a Link Between Worlds screwed me over. i love love love love love, loved
    loved loved LOVED a Link to the Past….

    the SNES was the last Nintendo system that i’ve owned. I had the NES and
    OG Gameboy and that was it for me and Nintendo (i recently turned 27 so
    i’ve been gaming for a while) but then A Link Between worlds happened….

    I tried to resist, i really did , and i did ok for a while. Was never a
    fan of handheld consoles, ever. but a man could only do so much
    considering Nintendo’s power over me using nostalgia and them great
    childhood memories…. So i went ahead and got the 3ds XL a Link Between
    Worlds bundle. One major problem….. I had already spent almost 3,000
    bucks on a new gaming rig (primarily a PC gamer here so had to) i finished
    building by the end of July, also got the PS4 on release date, along with
    games for PC, PS4 and PS3. Christmas was around the corner and presents
    had to be gotten for family and loved ones in general….

    but i fell in love with a LBW, and worse yet the 3DS XL and I just couldnt
    put my finger on where me and Nintendo went wrong…… and all of a sudden
    my impulse buying tendencies went full steam ahead. Besides a LBW which
    came bundled with the system i also ended up getting Ocarina of Time 3D,
    Link’s Awakening DX, Mario 3D Land, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Pushmo, Fire
    Emblem: Awakening, Etrian Odyssey IV, Shin Megami Tensei IV, Monster Hunter
    3 Ultimate, Zero Escape: Virtues Last Reward and even got Pokemon X, and
    all those games I got in 3 days, just had to have em, couldnt resist.

    Thankfully, Holiday shopping went great too and didnt miss 1 single person,
    and got everyone what they wanted, or as close to what they wanted as
    possible…..

    now I’m thinking about buying this game, and i probably will buy it in a
    few minutes…..

    to the average gamer out there ( the around 30 year old or so educated
    professional, such as myself) you must, YOU MUST get a Nintendo 3DS XL,
    with 99%, if not 100% of those games that I got (still missin out on a few
    great ones that i heard great things about that i will get in the future,
    like Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon)

    to all the imbecile “TL:DR” 90s troll generation babies, go ahead and
    continue to play only COD, cause i play COD/BF4/Red2-Rising Storm and such
    myself, but to the ones only playin COD, its about time to start using your
    brains and firing up them neuron connections inside of it. Your head will
    most likely hurt for a while, but you’ll get used to it. do you really
    want to be imbeciles for the rest of your lives???

    we as a gaming community have failed, in my opinion, because we’ve let a
    vocal minority aka imbecile troll generation babies come to represent the
    gaming community which leads to non gamers thinking that all gamers are
    imbeciles and failures

  6. They forgot to mention that the Circle pad Pro is absolutely key!

  7. zombies is not really THE ONLY THING that matters. If you all played the
    R.E games then you’ll realize that a virus does not only make zombies but
    mutants as well and besides zombies are too main stream for a survival
    horror. Capcom creates new possibilities for the term viral outbreak and
    bio weapons(B.O.W) if you fella’s wants zombies that much then go play left
    for dead cause R.E games is all about thinking outside the box.

  8. I got the Xbox 360 version and I must say I liked it a lot. It was
    defiantly better than 6. Cut the flashbacks and Quint and Keith, focus on
    horror with about this level of action and you’ve got yourself a good
    foundation for RE7.

  9. this game was so boring :[ RE ive had the least fun with. overhyped as
    hell. never touched it again after playing the story. worst RE EVER.

  10. Really this is the best 3ds shooter ever. I think a nine 

  11. I am really enjoying this game on my PS3…the graphics are awesome (no
    screen tearing) and the enviroment creepy…

  12. Just bought this game for the xbox, and wow! I saw the ooze monsters and
    thought ‘ew ugly, but not zombies’. Playing is a different matter though.
    They absolutely eat bullets, and their movements are completely
    unpredictable. It really doesn’t take many at once for you to think ‘I’m
    fucked’. The problem with RE’s more recent enemy line up was never that
    they weren’t zombies. The problem was that they were way too human,
    wielding all sorts of weapons and shouting actual words. The ooze though,
    they feel real… And terrifying. 

  13. It’s been years since I’ve genuinely enjoyed an original Resident Evil
    title. Originally I was kind of skeptical of Revelations. After sub-par
    experiences with 5 and 6 there was no reason to think this would be much
    better. However about half way into this game I am hooked. Playing this
    now I can’t help but think that this is how Resident Evil should have
    evolved. I mean sure I would have loved to have had zombies, but the
    emphasis on exploration, the creepy atmosphere, decent enough scares,
    characters I can actually root for, and just the right amount of action
    makes me wonder why it took so long for something like this to get made.

    In fact before playing Revelations the only Resident Evil game I had
    enjoyed since ReMake was The Darkside Chronicles. So at that point you’re
    talking about 10 years from 2002 to 2012 for me to find a Resident Evil
    game to enjoy (PS3 version of Darkside Chronicles) and 12 to 13 years since
    the last time I enjoyed an original Resident Evil story in Code Veronica.
    At that rate I’m essentially competing with Half Life fans for longest
    wait. Though Half Life fans will always win in cases like that.

    Regardless of what the future holds it’s nice to finally be able to sit
    down and play a Resident Evil title as a fan rather then a critic. 

  14. GREAT GAME. if you have 3ds get the demo now!

  15. Im a big resident evil fan have played all of the main games and i have to
    say this is the best in my eyes. It made me jump again and the story was
    very different to the others and how it had the “previously on resident
    evil” reminders was brilliant

  16. What bkkilla ?90s imbecil babies? You are the imbecil have you seen the
    amount of games you bought in such a short set of time , did you even
    watched a review or read what was the main plot? No. Because you are an
    impulsive person who will buy any crap thats put in front of your face.
    Have fun playing a game that as lost all of is origins , and now its
    nothing more then a milk product.

  17. expecting a decent and coherent story from a resi game is hilarious to me.

  18. What?!You want the old RE survival horror back?And you are saying to do it
    like revelations?! Are you fucked up?! Revelations had some tension in jill
    campaing but not horror at all ,not to talk about the horrible action
    oriented chris and parker parts , also called, call of evil.And one more
    thing for the people who liked RE6, you are giving you re money to a bunch
    of fat sell outs who completly destroy the franchise just because it makes
    more money , this game is a cheap ripoff of other games

  19. This game is a 9 hands down but the story was stupid spoiler alert Chris
    and Jill are bsaa members in this game and it leads up to RE5 but if you
    payed attention to the story and cutscenes for RE5 you would know that
    Chris and Jill are still a part of the stars unit when they fought wesker
    its interesting to see capcom interfere with its own story

  20. You can get this game on club nintnedo for about 150 pts. right now

  21. this game is like the very first game I ever own and I got my first Gameboy
    with it!

  23. I’m getting this from Club Nintendo later. 😀

  24. @OmegaZeroX100 Watch LordKat’s most recent This Week in Games. He has a 24
    hour stream that focuses on video games, and isn’t worried about the bill
    at all.

  25. @0Achicaru0 The introduction for Operation Rainfall or the Dr Who/ Voltron
    intro.

  27. @kNIGHTWING01 I’m glad that Chrono Trigger was re-released. It actually got
    me into that style of RPG.
