Question about the solo/partner thing. Gonna determine if I buy or not.

Is it a REQUIREMENT to have a partner with you in the solo campaign? AI or otherwise? I'm worried it's going to be like RE5 or 6. I prefer the solo RE4 mode. Even Ashley wasn't THAT big of a pain because she was only in short bursts.

I find RE games to be more tense when you are going it alone. If I constantly have an AI partner with me via requirement for story or something. I'm not getting this game. Wanted it for Survival horror. Not a Gears of War knock off.

I played this on the kids 3ds, its actually a good game, I do recommend, but I do agree with you I like to go solo, resi 4 was good, but resi 5 the other character gets in the way lol.

I cant remember if its a big deal on revelations in all honesty, but this is a good game, and I do recommend.

You do have a partner with you in solo play but there are alot of parts where you get seperated and you go alone. Also, the partner has unlimited ammo.

Some times he follows you around, you dont have to worry about him though, like in resi 5 or 4 with Ashley and he is not always there, like in Resi 6. Overall a much better formula with less frustration and plenty of moments when you are all alone in the dark. Ussually, when you discover a new area, you scout ahead alone and your partner scouts another sector, just like they did in Resi 1 and when you have to leave it, your partner follows you on the run, or rarely leads the way, if you get lost.
