This is a remake to one of the most influential survivor-horror titles ever made; Resident Evil. The game puts you in the place of two members of the Special Tactics and Rescue Squad based in Raccoon City. There have been reports of bizarre murders throughout the Arklay Mountains, and it is your job to investigate what exactly has happened....
The first thing everyone notices with this game is its graphics. This game really pushes the Gamecube to the limit with almost photo-realistic visuals and lighting effects. All of the characters look as if they have stepped from the real world into the television. Trust me, they are that good.
The sound effects are very effective. Shots from the various weapons you can acquire are very realistic. The ambient noise heard while trekking throughout the outdoor portions feels like you actually stepped outside yourself and heard crickets chirping and dogs barking. The voice acting is MUCH more improved in the remake than from the original Playstation game.
People who are used to the original game on the Playstation might need to run through this game once more to notice all of the differences this time around. The grounds for the majority of the game have been either moved or completely revamped. A large amount of the puzzles have underwent a facelift as well. Fans of the old one will have a fun time exploring an almost new mansion.
Overall, if you are a Resident Evil fan or a horror game fan in general, you must buy this game!
