Sound in the game is also done very well. Though the game features the cheesy dialogue we've all come to expect from Resident Evil, it is delivered very well and with conviction by the game's voice actors. The music is also done very well, and the game features a deep and moody score designed to get under your skin.

In addition to the eight-hour story mode, Resident Evil: Revelations also features some nice additional content for those who aren't quite ready to say goodbye to the creepy seas. There's a StreetPass-powered mission mode that allows you to take on missions in the context of the story mode that have been shared with you by other players. There is also a co-op mode that allows you to team up with a friend either locally or online. This mode is arcade in nature and allows you to take on waves of oncoming enemies to get a high score. Both of these modes augment the experience nicely and definitely add value to this bundle.

Resident Evil: Revelations proves that you don't have to be on a home console to enjoy an expansive game. The story is one of the best in Resident Evil's recent history, and the shooter controls are pretty much perfect. Fans of the series should definitely pick this one up, and even those who aren't necessarily into the Resident Evil franchise would do well to check it out. Though Resident Evil has had a bit of a rocky relationship with handheld consoles, Revelations perhaps redeems the franchise while providing some legitimate scares along the way. This is one trip on the ocean that you are unlikely to forget any time soon. Bon voyage!
