Amazing Story & Gameplay, but..

Resident Evil Revelations 2 is an amazing episodic survival-horror game with great game play, but challenging and a bit on the violent side. The story is told from a split perspective, one of these follows two women who are part of an anti-bio warfare, as they get abducted by strange people and brought to a very Alcatraz style prison on an unknown island. The second perspective follows one of the girl's father, looking for his daughter, and a young girl that the father encounters on the island. First off, many in-game references will be missed if you aren't familiar with previous titles in the franchise. Such as jokes referring to events in previous titles, and returning characters and references to other important characters in the series. This will ruin some of the comedy that helps remove some of the tension the player will have while playing, so keep that in mind if this is your first RE title. Other issues people might encounter is yes, the scare factor. Now, its sense of terror is derived in a similar way Alien Isolation does it. If makes you feel helpless, sure you have weapons, but it makes you question if there ever is a 'safe' spot in the game. Because of that, it might scare some people, and it is a very depressing game. Certain events in the story help build on the feeling of 'all hope is lost' that the game sets up shortly after the initial cut scene. With many violent sections in the standard game play, certain scenes also have a high level in violence. In one scene (trying to stay as spoiler free as possible), a man stabs his arm repeatedly to cut it off to prevent from turning into one of the zombie-like creatures you encounter all throughout the game. The story is very well done, but some of the violence might disturb some younger children playing the game. (There is a side mode with much less violence, but isn't nearly as well-done as the story mode, very simple arcade style fun featuring characters from the story.)

i think it's okay for teen-agers

i think it mirrors a typical culture for teen-agers and scares them in a way that is fun and freaky.

Strong bloody violence, horror, language

Revelations 2 has a much darker story than the first game, following the story of how its main characters are captured and put on an island full of zombies and mutants, with all of their actions monitored by a cruel villain called the Overseer. The game features some intense violence towards these mutated creatures and often has a lot of gore, though it doesn't focus on the very strongest of details. The player characters bleed if attacked by enemies. Some of the cutscenes are quite intense as well. The environments are dark and oppresive, resulting in an immersive and scary experience. In the game you'll come across rooms with corpses hanging from the ceiling, rooms overflowing with blood and more. The enemies also have a horrific, nightmarish look to them. There are several uses of strong language, usually spoken by one of the characters, Moira, who says f*** a lot.

Impressed me!

This game is one of my favourite Resident Evil games. This game is not over the top gory, it does not give as many scares as you would expect. Although the characters do tend to swear a lot, I don't think this game is something that should be hidden from kids my age.
