    The graphics are fantastic for this game! The only issue I saw – and this is nitpicking – is that your partner’s mouth didn’t move while he was talking in-game. The sound effects and music are stellar, too. Truly a showcase for the 3DS’s capabilities.

    On a random note, has anyone tried playing with the 3D on ‘very strong’? It’s an option in the settings and, combined with the 3D slider on max, will make you want to throw up in about 5 seconds. Seeing how long you can keep your lunch down is almost a game in and of itself!

      I never knew about the “very strong” option in the 3DS. I feel like going to best buy and changing the setting on those demo units.

      I also have to say that the small feature like that can make or break a game. The illusion is broken and you can’t stop paying attention to it.

        Sorry if I wasn’t totally clear – the option is for Resident Evil Revelations, not for the 3DS as a whole. As in, when you launch the demo and go to ‘Options’ -> ‘Game Settings’, one of the settings is ‘Enhance 3D Depth Slider’, with the possibilities being Normal/Strong/Very Strong

    I played a demo of it a few months ago at a Capcom event and really enjoyed it. I would say that the game played better with the Circle Pad Pro, and with other games such as Metal Gear primed to use it too, it might make sense to pick one up.

    Graphics by the way, looked fantastic!
