About This Game

Armageddon. Apocalypse. The end of days. Mayan prophecy foretells the beginning of a new world age on December 21, 2012 when the road to the stars will descend from the sky and civilization as we know it will come to a tumultuous end. That date has arrived and with it the awakening of a most formidable enemy. Galactic alignment has enabled an artifact which opened a portal allowing villainous Gods access to our universe. Fate has chosen 4 characters to teleport through this portal into another dimension and battle against all odds to rescue mankind from destruction and enslavement. Using teamwork and strategy, can the four heroes save humanity by defeating these evil foes?

In Revelations 2012 players progress through an alternate dimension in a sweltering jungle environment heavily influenced by ancient Mayan culture. First-person shooter action is combined with puzzle solving requiring methodical yet quick-thinking team play in a captivating campaign that can be played with up to four players in co-op mode. Players navigate their way through this perilous maze in 15 different maps gathering "suki-tok" to advance themselves all the while fighting hordes of demonic minions. At the end of each level, the characters are faced with their greatest challenge yet, the Gods themselves!!! As each God is defeated players acquire a crystal to increase the capability of their weapon. Players must use each successive crystal in the next trial that awaits them. Gather all the crystals and overpower the Gods to be victorious in this epic journey.

In addition, multi-player modes let you compete four-on-four with friends playing as either heroes or demons in stasis tag or team death match. Revelations 2012 also boasts the premiere of battlegrounds multi-player maps.

revelations 2012 is like having an out of body experience of having your prostate examined before the doctor suddenly gets angry and smashes your nuts with a tennis racket, hilarious, painful, and entirely pointless

My brother ended up winning four copies of this game during some summer/winter sale a couple of years back. He insisted that I play with him and our crew. The problem is that the three of them played it once when I was at work and never played it again for some mysterious reason. I finally put this thing on my computer and found out the reason they never touched this game again: this game is abysmal in every category.
You start the game out with three other players , but this game came out two years ago, i.e. more than enough time for people to try the game out and decide that they've had enough of it, so you'll probably end up playing the single player version of the game with your teammates being played as bots. Your choices are a noble hick, a British historian, or two hot chicks. You illustrious four have been warped from wherever the heck you were to some part of Central America by a Mayan priest, have been given futuristic weapons and armor (which he states were worshipped by the Mayans) and you must stop the 2012 apocalypse from happening by essentially murdering the Mayan people. Or at least I think that's what happens. I kind of stopped playing after half an hour and have no intention of continuing whatsoever.
The concept is a lot like the Left 4 Dead games (four players slaying a swarm of enemies), but the gameplay is very much along the lines of Painkiller (swarm of enemies with limited weapons and powerups to kill them in a very linear area). The only difference is that Painkiller and the Left 4 Dead games all have very well written stories, interesting characters, professional voice acting and superb graphics, whereas Revelations 2012 has none of that. The story sucks, the voice acting is laughable at times and the gameplay is boring and intellectually devoid. Skipping over such trivialities as the PLOT or the DIALOGUE to get straight to the action can be a good thing, as the Unreal Tournament series has so often shown us, but the gameplay in this one justifies nothing. And the graphics, ZOMG the graphics! The graphics look like they were made by a two man independent development team from a third world country who were trying to make a video game where all the characters have vision problems...for the SEGA SATURN!!! I usually don't dwell on the graphics of the game so long as every other aspect of the game is amazing, but the graphics of Revelations 2012 deserve a special whistleblowing.
In conclusion, you want to stay the hell away from this game. I was literally given a copy of it completely free of charge and I still feel like I've been cheated. I doesn't matter if the game is only $2.49, no price is low enough to blemish your STEAM account or your hard drive with this genital sore equivalent. If you want a four person game where you run around and kill stuff, play Left 4 Dead. If you want a game with a Latino presence, play any of the Tropico games, Grim Fandago, Black Ops II, or hell, play as the token latino guy in any of the Rainbow Six games. Even that will be more culturally enriching than this abomination. You may think that I'm not warranted to speak about this game having only played a half hour of it, but just trust me on this one, okay? This isn't about me being right, even though I am. I'm looking out for YOU.
In fact, let me show you something. Scroll up a bit on this page. See the one critique listed by Valid Gaming? Click on the hyperlink "valid gaming". It took you to a web domain that no longer exists, didn't it? Want to know why? Valid Gaming:
a.) didn't know what the hell they were talking about and because of that was ignored until they were forced to quit.
b.) was Dark(f)artz Entertainment secretly inventing a publication that would actually give their game a thumbs up.

or

c.) was purged from existence by the powers that be for supporting this game.

You decide! Any way you slice it, this game is cursed.

I liked nothing, it's a 2012 release, and has 2D sprites.

I didn't even know source engine supported that.

You're the type of gamer who enjoyed numerous hours in Left 4 Dead 1 & 2 and now looking for something different but similar at the same time. To you Revelations 2012 seems like an alternative! But beware! 2012 might not be the year the world ended as predicted by the Mayans but your computer's life might end if you install this game... If you're in desperate need for revelations in life you will find one in this game : it is the worst Left 4 Dead clone ever made! But saying that is not enough! It is just the worst game of 2012. Now is that a REVELATION to you?

This is absolute ♥♥♥♥♥.

This is one of those games that you gift as a prank, or to someone who doesn't mind a game so bad it provides laughs. I, for one, fall into the latter category and was gifted this game by a friend. Thing is, other than some of the terrible dialogue (Corey's "Oh yeah" everytime he picks up health never ceases to get a chuckle) and odd design choices, the game is just sort of lackluster.

It's not as outright terrible as Secret of the Magic Crystals or Bad Rats (ESPECIALLY Bad Rats), it has some broken/not quite right mechanics at play, but it's not really enough to get any humour out of the game. Gameplay can be fairly frustrating, with enemies coming out of what feels like nowhere (not in the cool L4D2 sense of that phrase, where the level design complimented large amounts of enemies rushing at you and kept action tense and enjoyable) as well as poorly pointed out objectives.

At the end of the day (and this shoddy review), Revelations 2012 is one of those games that yeah, you can get a laugh with some mates if you play it together and have the right group of people, but as it stands it's just a lackluster and boring game with some occasional moments that might (emphasis on MIGHT) make you chuckle.

tl;dr Bad game, worth the price of admission if you know what you're getting and you derive some ironic form of entertainment from crappy games such as Bad Rats, otherwise leave it be.

I arrive to the main menu, and discover it's a shooter with online coop. My "Hmmm" glands tingle, surely nobody would go to all this trouble for a joke game.
Only then I started a proper level and get a faceful of ♥♥♥♥ty...everything. I go to change the controls and encounter that distinctive Source engine style, with controls for "Spray tag". After playing a bit more, I notice the bad guys have some familiar animations, the ammo and teammates have a coloured outline through walls and with the revive UI it hits me: it's a Left 4 Dead mod. And by L4D mod I mean monkeys puking into typewriters writing the story, voice acting composed of woman moaning ♥♥♥♥♥♥ically and a general ♥♥♥♥tyness that defies expectations. The most insulting thing is that I see that this game was created to capitalize on Youtubers, by being ♥♥♥♥ "ironically" and getting exposure that way.

I tried joining a friend's game, but while we were both loading said co-op game up, mine failed to connect. Looking at his screen while he plays through this ugly mess of an L4D clone, I think I can consider myself the lucky one.

What happens when a family who went on a vacation to a Mayan ruin make a game? This.

This game is the WORST Left 4 dead rip that was ever made.

Run. Just leave this one in the dust
