It's tradition by now.

Hmm, I thought that might be the case. Not sure that's a good enough justification to keep it in though - there are newer players to the series to think about too. If everyone's favorite "MAN. AT. 100. METRES." can be fixed I'm sure this is eligible for update too :)

I see no problem with it. Revert means to change back to a previous state. It does exactly that, and as such I feel the word is just fine. No mistranslation here.

"Revert" is technically applicable but it isn't colloquial, which is what most UIs get written in for usability reasons.

I'd also concede that "Revert" sounds more army-ish.
