Game description

“The models look great, especially on a high-end PC with all of the settings jacked up.” 9.5/10 – Destructoid

“One of the greatest horror games of all time becomes even better” 9.5/10 – GameInformer (print)

“This is the perfect opportunity for newcomers to jump in, and hardcore fans can look forward to the definitive version of a survival horror classic.” 9.3/10 – GameTrailers


The game that defined the survival-horror genre is back! Check out the remastered HD version of Resident Evil.

In 1998 a special forces team is sent to investigate some bizarre murders on the outskirts of Raccoon City. Upon arriving they are attacked by a pack of blood-thirsty dogs and are forced to take cover in a nearby mansion. But the scent of death hangs heavy in the air. Supplies are scarce as they struggle to stay alive.


Key features:

Graphics

  • More detailed graphics that retain the horror.

  • The environments come alive with detail thanks to resolution upgrades and non-static 3D models.

  • Post-processing effects like Bloom filters, which were not easy to do at the time of the original release, have been added to make the HD graphics even more realistic.

  • High-Resolution Environments - We've increased the resolution of the background environments by recreating them with a mix of high-res static images, plus animated 3D models.

Widescreen Support

  • Widescreen (16:9) is supported, so players can experience a greater sense of immersion.

  • In widescreen mode, the screen will scroll. The parts of the screen that get cut off on the top and bottom will scroll into view automatically depending on the character's position.

  • You can switch the display mode during gameplay in real time.

Sound & New Controls

  • High-Quality Sound - The audio has been remastered to increase the sampling rate, and of course 5.1ch output is also now supported.

  • New Controls

  • You can play using the original control scheme or an alternate control scheme that lets you just push the analog stick to move in the direction you want to go.

  • You can switch the control scheme during gameplay in real time.

The best zombies don't stay dead

Capcom takes us back to the origins of one of its most famous franchises in Resident Evil. In what is perhaps the best video game remake of all time, it is fitting that such a fantastic treatment was finally given to the game that single-handedly defined the survival horror genre. The graphics, redesigned from the ground up in modern HD, are nothing short of fantastic. Each environment and scenario has been faithfully recreated and the results are stunning. Never have the dead looked to beautiful. While the gameplay remains very similar to the original, this is by no means a bad thing. Make no mistake, Capcom has channeled the best elements of a game that is well deserving of its status as a true classic. The storyline is as haunting and memorable as it first was when Capcom launched their fledgling horror title, and the atmosphere has really been brought up to current day standards. This reissue of this archetypal hit is actually much more enjoyable to play then some of the newer Resident Evil games. Many later iterations to the series have since lost the distilled essence of excellence that is the original Resident Evil. Whether you are new to the series or a diehard fan, it is well worth the time to investigate the frightening mansion where it all began.

Never have the dead been so lively

Resident Evil was the iconic game that started the survival horror video game genre. This wonderful remake takes you back to Capcom's roots, putting you back in the shoes of the original characters that started it all. While the story is the same and the gameplay similar to the original, this version is completely redrawn from the ground up with beautiful HD graphics and a modern game engine. If you are a fan of the genre or the series, this is a must-play. The dead have never looked so good, and you will see why this story was ground breaking enough to change the face of video gaming as we know it. The strange occurrences in the mansion that started it all are worth investigating again or for the first time.

Pretty much what you'd expect

If you're thinking about buying this game, consider this: If you've played the GameCube version, there's nothing new or different about this one at all, except for a new control scheme which kind of sucks, and I think they added a bloom effect. Whoopdeedoo. It still gets a thumbs up from me because, well, if you haven't played the GameCube version and/or you just prefer old school RE over this new garbage, this game is still pretty good.

Pleasantly surprised, first time experience!

First thing I have to say is I never had the courage to played the Gamecube version or the original PS1 version of Resident Evil when I was younger, so this is all new to me. From a PC port perspective, everything runs great and the game looks stunningly beautiful. I love the pre-rendered background, and the updated character models look nice. The atmosphere feels very unique and unlike anything I experience in this modern age of horror games.Just from the opening cutscene, the game sets a tone that this game will be very dreary, unsettling, and depressing(in a good way). The music and piano cues amplifies this even more. Another thing I have to give props to is the use of environmental storytelling. Although this game does have in-game cutscenes that push the narrative forward, I say 90 percent of the game is done through environmental story telling, and I love it. A great example in a part of a game is when the player stumble upon a room full of fish tanks, bugs ornament on the wall, and insects in cages. It would of been simpler for the game developers to tell the player in a cutscene or radio what happened in that room, but this game never did that. Instead the designers left it up to the player's imagination to determine what happened in that room. It is up to the player to piece everything together and figure out what happened in the mansion. This game is full of things like that. Now in terms of gameplay, I was fine with it. I didn't have any problems with the updated modern controls and I understood the shooting mechanic isn't suppose to be like RE4. The Ink Ribbon saving system never really bothered either, because I found many Ink Ribbon scattered about. The only problem I had was the inventory, which was quite limiting. I felt like my inventory filled up pretty quick. Since my inventory fills up pretty quick I had to backtrack to my stash a lot or sometimes I have to waste an herb to pick up an important key item to unlock a gate. Overall it was a very compelling experience and I don't think any horror fans should miss out on this gem.

Survival Horror Defined

An almost perfect example of Survival Horror, REmake REmaster is the definitive updated version of the original 2002 Gamecube game (itself a remake of the classic 1996 Playstation title). Everything that is expected of modern-day ports is here; native controller support, framerate settings, resolution settings, Anti-Aliasing, Vsync, and a choice between the original 4:3 display and widescreen 16:9 or 16:10. The game also has achievement support which will give even veteran players a reason to move out of their comfort zones (like attempting to complete the game using just the combat knife). As for the game itself, as far as I'm concerned it does everything right. At no point do you feel on top of the situation, and as such you are always on edge and in fear of what could be around the next corner. Even when you get better weaponry you are still at the mercy of the limited ammo available. It's not just ammo though, all supplies are scarce which fuels the tension of every enemy encounter. Throw in some puzzles, mystery and conspiracies and you've got yourself a truly compelling game. By far the best Resident Evil title and a strong contender for the best Survival Horror game of all time.
