We will start off with the single player portion of the game which thrusts you into the dutiful boots of one Nick Mendoza. He is a Miami police officer who hates corruption, but also has no qualms with shooting up the city in stupidly over-the-top shootouts or killing dozens of people on a regular basis.

Revelations 2 is finally complete after its last campaign episode released this week after dropping a new episode every Wednesday for the last four weeks. This is the first time the series has attempted a release schedule like this and I think it has really payed off. Each episode ends with a cliff-hanger, like the original 3DS game did, and thanks to that and the new release schedule I have been excited about the game for the past month...
