The Resident Evil series is a Japanese horror video game saga that has frightened and entertained players since the release of the first Resident Evil (or Biohazard in the Japanese version) on the PlayStation console in 1996. This series is among the horror favourites of many players worldwide, rivalling only Konami's Silent Hill.

Resident Evil: Revelations 2, which serves as a follow-up to Resident Evil 5 and also Revelations 1, was released in 2015 and focuses on four main characters: Claire Redfield and Moira Burton, who you play as for half the game, and Barry Burton (Moira's father and a character in some of the other titles) and Natalia Korda, who you play as in the other half of the game.

The Story

What is entertaining about Revelations 2 is that it can be played as a co-op, so people can play in pairs as well as alone. With two characters in each chapter, a single player can switch between Claire and Moira one chapter, and Barry and Natalia the next, utilising the unique skills each of them possesses.

As well as various modes in-game such as Raid Mode, the main focus of this game lies in the main campaign, a fun and scary adventure. Claire and Moira are taken away by masked men while at a party, and wake up on a nightmarish island filled with monsters and a woman, who calls herself the "Overseer," speaking to them through irremovable bracelets.

Six months later, Barry heads to the island to find Moira, only to meet a little girl the Overseer is hunting named Natalia, who can see invisible things and sense when other monsters are nearby.

How to Get the Good Ending

The main storyline of Revelations 2 has two endings. The bad ending involves the death of a main character and the triumph of the villain. However, it is perfectly possible to get the good ending with one simple step.

The Battle With Neil

In Chapter 3, you will fight Neil after he is shot with a serum by the Overseer. He transforms into a monster and is given immense strength and annoying tentacles that can hurt Claire and Moira.

With the battle itself, there are many healing items around the arena and, as with many of the monsters in this game, you must hit the orange boils (they appear when he sprays water on himself from a pipe) with a gun, although Moira's crowbar can do some damage, too. After fighting him, you will end up in an elevator, where he will attack again.

Who Is Your Favourite Character in "Resident Evil: Revelations 2"?

You will see a cutscene where Moira will be pinned down by Neil, causing her to drop her gun. When this happens, do not grab the gun as Claire. Switch to Moira.

When Moira was a child, she found her father's gun stash and accidentally shot her younger sister. Although her sibling survived, the guilt suffered by both herself and her father drove them apart. After that, she swore never to touch a gun again because of the trauma. This time, however, she has to save Claire by using her gun to finish Neil off.

Make Moira crawl towards the gun. The scene feels urgent, but you have plenty of time. She will have some bad flashbacks of her hurting her sister before finally grabbing the gun and shooting him.

By making Moira be the one to kill Neil, you have secured the good ending for your playthrough. You can see the full clip below.

Making Moira face her past and get over her fears gives her the strength to survive a very tight spot later on in the game, leading to a much more positive outcome! Getting Moira to reach for the gun instead of Claire can be easy to miss when the screen is frantically asking you to get Claire to grab it instead.

If you are playing in co-op mode, the player controlling Claire should simply sit and press no buttons while the player controlling Moira edges forward. You can enjoy some messed up memories and finally understand why Moira has a crowbar as her weapon of choice.

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is a fun and frightening game to play with a friend or alone. A good ending is always preferred because where's the fun in all your hard work going to waste? Although Resident Evil: Biohazard was the more critically acclaimed title of the series, Revelations 2 is nevertheless entertaining, enjoyable, and well worth playing if you love horror. Have fun!

Questions & Answers

  • In "Resident Evil Revelations 2", I played as Moira and shot Neil with her but she still died. Why did this happen?

    You have to shoot him in the cutscene and not let Claire grab the gun. Make sure you’ve played with the correct save file.

  • Do you have to start the Resident Evil Revelations 2 campaign from the start if you have already got the bad ending or can you start from episode 3?

    As long as you haven’t seen the cutscene with the gun yet, you can play from an old save.
