Remember when Resident Evil was about surviving against the undead, as opposed to just blowing their heads off? Remember when Resident Evil was about exploring and solving puzzles, as opposed to just killing zombies? Remember when Resident Evil actually made you conserve your items, as opposed to being allowed to go all guns blazing? Remember when Resident Evil was the video game equivalent of a B-grade horror movie, as opposed to an action movie?
Pepperidge Farm remembers. It also remembers that while it was far from the first survival horror game ever made, it was the game that got the genre on the map in the first place. In fact, it even coined the term “survival horror”, and throughout the game, you'll know what they mean – a haunting atmosphere, limited items around the place, limited space in your character's inventory packs, zombie dogs jumping through windows to attack you and, above all else, just the feeling that you could be dead at any moment is the definition of survival...
THE GOOD: Good Graphics Good Sounds Great Gameplay Excellent Storyline
THE BAD: Voice Acting Nothing Else
SUMMARY: As far as I can tell this game is one of my favorites on the PlayStation One. This is my 3rd favorite Resident Evil game in the series, and I can tell you why.
The graphics in this game looked realistic when it first came out in 1996. The graphics are out dated and it's still looking great on the PlayStation. When I first played this back in 2002, I thought the game looked bad on the back cover of the game, but when I played this I was wrong the graphics were good.
The sounds were great and it's still great now. The Voice acting was the problem of this game, I was laughing through out the whole game. But this game is still great. The zombie sounds was kind of scary and the bite sounds was terrible. The only best sound in the game is the Menu when you hear "RESIDENT EVIL!". There's another thing I want to add, the music. The Music in the game were great and kind of corny,...
Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where, uh, Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment...
THE GOOD: Great sounds, music, puzzles, characters, graphics, story-line, gameplay, and scary.
THE BAD: Bad acting, the zombie-bite sounds, zombie movements.
SUMMARY: Storyline 10/10
This game has a great story-line. Bravo Team helicopter discover a mansion. The engine of the helicopter brust. The helicopter crashed over the mountains. Alpha Team discover Bravo Team helicopter. But, no one wasn't in the helicopter. Also they been chased by monsters like dogs, and entered the mansion. But, the horror was just the begin.
The sounds are good except the zombies sounds, and maybe you people think the characters voices are not that good because, the way how it sounds bad. But, i think it's pretty good.
Excellent 3D colorful graphics of all time of 1996. It makes it scarier than the old playstation horror games.
You control Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine from S.T.A.R.S Alpha Team to escape from zombies, dead dogs, snakes, bees, and other creature...
THE GOOD: Unique storyline and some good puzzles along with good camera and graphics at the time, scary.
THE BAD: Some of the worst dialogue yu will ever hear in a videogame, slow combat and a slow moving game, and a overall difficult experience
SUMMARY: If you look up survival horror in a dictionary you will see Resident Evil as its definition. Resident Evil is what truly started a genre that has grown since its release. But how good is it? This game has one of the most unique storylines ever. a team of special agents called S.T.A.R.S. has its Bravo team investigate bizzare murders in the woods of racoon city. Victims have been eaten. Some say cannibals. Some say animals. But noone knows for sure. After Bravo's helicopter crashes and loses contact with the S.T.A.R.S. departament yo are sent with the other members of Alpha team to check it out. Yu find the copter crashed but dont know why. you have no time to figure out wat happens as you are attacked by dogs. You run to a nearby mansion...
THE GOOD: Genuinely creepy atmosphere, some tough puzzles, tough bosses, decent graphics, very good in-game music
THE BAD: Ridiculous voice-acting, tough camera angles at times
SUMMARY: This is probably one of the creepiest games I've ever played and the first title I ever owned for my Playstation. From the first time those two Cerberuses scared the hell out of me when they jumped through the windows early in the game I knew I was in for something good. The whole time the game has you on your toes as you play through a very creepy environment with music that makes your situation that much more tense. You never know what is going to happen every time you turn a corner or open a door. And that's what made this game so great and spawned so many sequels.
Probably the most noticeable negative aspect about this game is the horrendous voice-acting. Jill sounds like a clueless blonde, Wesker sounds like a confused school teacher and Barry sounds like a complete moron. Other than that you've got s...
THE GOOD: Great story line, the graphics are outdated now but looked great at the time
THE BAD: Very old now, controls were tricky to start with.
SUMMARY: This was the game that started the wonderful series that is resident evil. This is something not to play on your own on a dark night as if your like me (a wuss:P) you'll be too scared to play after a while.
I don't reccomend you go buy this game thought what I do reccomend is you get yourself a Gamecube and go buy the remake.
