Be prepared to relive the first nightmare in Resident Evil 0, a remastered version of the popular prequel to the original Resident Evil game. This remastered version takes the fear-inducing atmosphere from the original 2002 release and transforms it with stunning new HD visuals, improved sound, widescreen support and an optional modernized control system and more. It’s the best way to experience the story of what really happened before the iconic mansion incident that was the catalyst for the entire Resident Evil saga.
The story of Resident Evil 0 takes players back to 1998. Reports have been mounting about unusual murders on the outskirts of Raccoon City. The city’s Special Forces division, S.T.A.R.S., sends their Bravo Team - including rookie cop member Rebecca Chambers - to investigate. On route, the team’s helicopter suffers engine trouble and is forced to make a crash landing, where they find an overturned prisoner transport vehicle. Splitting up to search the area, Rebecca discovers the Ecliptic Express, a train stopped dead on the tracks. Inside, she meets death row convict and ex-Navy lieutenant Billy Coen. Throughout the game, you will take control of both Rebecca and Billy, at times switching between both characters in order to proceed. Learning the advantages of each character is the key to solving puzzles and surviving the nightmares that lie ahead.

Resident evil 0 is definitely one of the best survival horror games. The HD Remaster version looks dazzlingly, everything is kept in very high quality. The game offers an amazing tense atmosphere just like in good old times, great gameplay and plot that explains quite a bit about the origins of this cult series. It is worth adding that the game does not goes easy on the players who are trigger happy, it's simply not reasonable to kill everyone and dispose of ammunition so that it will ran out at the end of the game.
Excellent game and of course excellent resident evil, A classic that will return us to the true survival horror, to the true essence of resident evil, with that feeling of continuous tension, scarcity of items, a pretty good story, two interesting protagonists and with Perfect scenarios taken care of up to the last detail.
Resident Evil 0 serves as a prequel to the original title, showing what Rebecca was doing before the events of the first game. The lightning, character models, and textures have all been updated and even in the original Gamecube version the environments were atmospheric and offered some nice details. The PC version of the RE0 update will offer 60FPS and higher framerate options when compared to the console versions. The story cutscenes have unfortunately not been updated like the rest of the game. You can choose to play with the old style controls but a newer and more easy to use method was created and chosen for the default. The game still has the old elements that people might not like from the old Resident Evil titles like managing the inventory and the game itself never did tell an interesting story or add much to the overall franchise lore. One new addition is the ability to unlock and play as Albert Wesker with new abilities throughout the original game. If you enjoyed the original game you will likely enjoy this and enjoy having it on a more modern platform but if you never were a big fan of the series or if you just didn't enjoy 0 this won't do anything to change your mind.
Resident Evil 0 is an old school survival horror and a prequel to the first Resident Evil. You play as STARS member Rebecca Chambers and a criminal called Billy Coen and you have to use their different strengths depending on the situation to move through the game. Billy is much stronger and can take more damage and move heavy objects, Rebecca is weak but has two more inventory slots and can combine herbs/chemicals. Graphics of the game are more consistent and overall improved from the previous REmake with better effects. There is a lot of backtracking involved since there are no item boxes and you must drop the items on the floor but the items don't disappear, this is very frustrating especially for newcomers to the series. I recommend this game if you want to play a classic RE game with improved and modern graphics/sound design with a choice between classic "tank" or modern 3D controls.
Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster is, as it name suggests, an HD remastering of Resident Evil 0, a game that tried to be a sequel to the original Resident Evil. The game looks great but functions almost identically to the original game, which is both a good and bad thing. Unlike Resident Evil games at the time, Resident Evil 0 was a semi-co-op experience where you had an AI controlled partner that you had to keep alive. This was both a good and bad thing, as each character could do things that the other could not and in order to finish the game you would have to use both; many times puzzles would require you to switch between characters constantly. Sadly this character system didn?t work as well as it should, and if one character was being attacked while separated you would have to switch to them, kill whatever was attacking the character, and then switch back to the first character and continue with what you were doing. It got annoying very quickly. The story is typical Resident Evil cheese: somebody is angry at Umbrella for being evil so they will be evil themselves and do what Umbrella would do in order to make sure Umbrella would never do what they?re about the world and so on. It?s stupid, but it?s classic Resident Evil stupid, which is a far cry from the current Resident Evil stupid. Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster is good. It tries to do things differently from Resident Evil and both succeeds and fails; some changes are welcome, while others either didn?t need to exist or need some tweaking. Either way, it?s still better than Resident Evil 6.
