Default Resident Evil

This game looked great in 1996 but in 2002 it looked so much better. I got the original game a week before my 15th birthday. The opening movie is definitely one of the best I've ever seen. Although the one in the remake is much more serious, I laugh at the noises the S.T.A.R.S. members make in the first game as they run through the forest.

Well I'll start by saying that the pre-rendered graphics do make this game look special, unlike all the 2D crap they used in the 1990s. Mind you, that is a bit harsh because back then, such graphics were very important. The graphical changes in the remake really does make for a superb horror game because you feel like you're in the mansion yourself. I got a GameCube in 2002 just to play this game alone.

If graphics were a woman, they would probably be Amy Weber. They're that beautiful. The amount of detail put into the game is very special. Capcom have never disappointed me yet and they probably never will. They definitely are dedicated to bringing us the best games around and even if they don't spend a big budget, we've seen classic examples of their talent.

How many other games make you jump like this one? The wind, the trees, the paintings, the monsters. The best part is, these zombies don't stay down like obedient boys unless they are destroyed. Now every entry to the series has seen zombies get quicker and smarter, but never have they been as fearsome as they are in the remake. Being a S.T.A.R.S. agent proved to be messy work, but it would have been even more messy if they had their way with you.

Everything looks and sounds so real. Sadly, the interactive environments weren't introduced until Resident Evil 4 gave us that kind of freedom. I thought everything else was magnificent though. Now the graphics in Resident Evil 4 were also amazing, but in the remake they definitely are very appropriate for the Resident Evil saga.

The acting in the original game is very infamous. I mean, the whole picking locks thing between Jill and Barry is best forgotten. Although I used to cringe when Chris finds Rebecca in the rest room. They sounded really nervous and I thought Rebecca was trying to flirt with him.

We definitely need more great games like this. I've played through a lot of creepy games but nothing can topple this. I am usually against remakes, but this remake remains true to the original game. However, I do think the Lisa Trevor character was slighty wasted because she was nothing more than a glorified extra in the plot.

You can use this thread to talk about both the original game and the remake. I often believe the director's cut is harder because there is more zombies and less bullets. Although a cheat exists, the game is still brutal.

My god, I love the Resident Evil series along with Final Fantasy and Tekken.

Ever since that picture of a Zombie in Resident Evil 2 made me wet myself, I have been addicted. I just loved it (Before RE4) how they all linked up XD. From blowing up Mr X to blowing up Saddler (Is it me, or do all the final bosses get blown up?) I loved every second of it.

Never played RE0 though.
