A slouching goliath

It’s hard to know when to say goodbye. After almost 20 years, the “Resident Evil” series has kept itself alive through mutation, joining blockbuster spectacles, mobile miniatures, multiplayer experiments, light gun games and lavish remakes. “Resident Evil: Revelations 2” (Capcom, PS3, PS4, Xbox, PC) is a sequel to a 2013 spinoff that’s been split into four unique episodes, each culminating in a cliffhanger reveal meant to keep players lumbering forward for another few hours. Like a punch-drunk heavyweight in the 15th round, “Revelations 2” is a sad echo of former glory and an agonizingly perfect summation of it. It should have been over long ago, but it remains a marvel to see how much will remains in the slouching goliath.
