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 original Resident Evil is still a unique game among its sequals.

Resident Evil is one of the most influential games so far. It borrowed what was so great about 'Alone In The Dark' and helped to pioneer what the genre of survival horror is today. It is still creepiest in the series. The original Resident Evil is a unique game among its sequels. Gameplay- The gameplay in this game is complicated, to say the least. Controls are difficult at first, but if you get use to it, you will kind of see the point to why they decided to make the controls this way. Its because the game uses fixed camera angles throughout the various hallways and rooms your character comes across, giving it a truly cinematic and atmospheric experience for its time. The controls are detrimental to the tension of the experience of coming face to face with your enemy, you must have your specific weapon of choice equipped, prepare to aim with R1, aim manually towards your target and fire. Perfect tension. The game is also set up with two scenarios. One being a woman, who has a more involved story, able to unlock a number of doors and has a much easier setting. The male is more challenging and follows a story path of its own, with less ammo and limited items. the game overall is set mostly in a mansion within a large forest. Probably the biggest house you would ever see. Resident Evil has a number of challenging bosses, such as a Gigantic Snake, a Monster plant and many other creatures of the night. Item collection is detrimental this game, ammo for all weapons is limited and must be preserved in order to survive against more dangerous foes. Collecting and knowing how to combine and use herbs is important, they heal health. Graphics- For its time, Resident Evil's graphics were stunning. The playstation was still a new system in 1996 and Resident Evil used its capabilities well. The use of 3d polygons with moderately detailed clothes, faces and hair, walking around a brilliantly designed mansion was amazing for its time. The zombies were terrifying and designed very well. This was perhaps the finest looking game that year. Sound- Resident Evils sound was exceptional. The music was really its sound highlight. The use of slow creepy orchestra as the character moved through a hallway, not knowing whats around the corner was trully cinimatic. The sound effects, such as explosions were done fairly well, you would think a grenade launcher would make more sound than it displayed, but really, its not a problem. Voice acting however, well, wasn't very good. However with that being said, the voices do there job and dont hinder the games feel. Playability- This game is worth playing again and again, just like a good b-grade horror movie. There is lots to do in it and completing both 'Jill' (the woman) and 'Chris' (the guy)is rewarding.There are unlockable costumes and multiple ending depending on your bravery for the other sub characters during the last act of the game. This game has charm, class and atmosphere. Overall Resident Evil 1 is still one of the best titles.

Absolutely fantastic game, one of my all time favorites : 11/10

I've always loved the older Resident Evil games, however the last one I actually remember much about was Resident Evil 3 as I owned that one growing up, and only played the previous games at a friend's house. This Remaster/Remake is just was I was hoping for. The newer Titles RES 5 and RES 6 focus way too much on action, and you often end up with a small asenal at your disposal with a ridiculous amount of ammo. This is not the case with this Remaster/Remake. Ammo is limited, Inventory space is limited, and even your vision is limited depending on where the camera is situated. (this is a good thing) It makes you use caution when moving somewhere, often you may want to rely on your senses... can you hear a zombie groaning in the other room? or was it just your imagination? I started out playing this game on hard mode, just to see what it was like. I died from the 2nd or 3rd zombie I encountered. It was a brutal experience, the zombies were tough as nails eating most of clip from my hand gun before finally dying. I was stuck relying on my knife almost immediately due to not having enough ammo to take care of the zombies, and since I needed to get around the zombies to proceed, there was little choice. Due to being in close melee range, it also meant they could grab and eat me.. which is what usually ended up happening. Hard mode was INTENSE.. It was terrifyingly amazing how useless and weak I felt. This made me actually FEAR the zombies. Everytime I entered a new room I was a tense situation not knowing if there would be a zombie to greet me as soon as I stepped though the door.. After a couple of deaths I decided to switch to Easy Mode and progressed through the game much better. While it was Easy Mode, I still thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It wasn't a walk in the park, the game was still challenging but the player can take more hits before dying, and there are more healing herbs and ammo scattered around the mansion. This was greatly benifital to me as I had no idea where I was going, or what I was to expect up ahead and it allowed some room for error. There were still times where I died, but often it was due to being ill prepared. There are multiple traps in this game, and while they look like they would probably be insta-death I managed to avoid all of them by being cautious or just seeing ahead. I finished the game after about 20 or so hours.. This was actually a pretty long play through and could have been done much shorter. This was widely because of not knowing where I was going. Not to say that you are wandering around aimlessly.. (although you kind of are in a sense) There is a map, and its the key to progressing. Some areas of the mansion are unaccessable until you find a certain objects.. like keys, or items used for puzzles that open way for new areas.

Great PC port!

Resident Evil HD Remaster is a great game, despite being a fact it's a port of a Gamecube version still it has been improved. I had the game made for Nintendo console and couldn't force myself to play it because of the awful tank controls which were acceptable in the Playstation version of the game because analogue sticks were simply not there at that time but Gamecube had those so I don't really understand this decision. Luckily PC port doesn't suffer the same problem as now there is an option to switch to more intuitive character controls.

A remaster of the Gamecube version of Resident Evil comes to the PC

Resident Evil started out as a Playstation title, which was followed by the Playstation Directors Cut, then a Gamecube remake, and now comes a remastered version of the Gamecube remake. This version keeps the atmosphere and gameplay elements of the Gamecube title while improving the resolution, textures, backgrounds and lighting, though there are some blurry parts. The PC version of this remaster allows you a higher resolution than the consoles and the ability to have 60FPS. There is a new control option that should make things easier for new players but if you want to play the game with the original "tank" controls you are able to switch back to that. If you were fan of the either the original or the Gamecube version then you should enjoy this title, it's also a good game for players new to the series, but if you already have the means to play it you might not see much of a need to pay for a few updates.

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.
