Redefines the idea of survival horror for those who have forgotten


The Introduction:
While I consider the Resident Evil series to be a complete joke and to be about as scary as a sheet with eye holes, there's something alluring about the first Resident Evil game - particularly its remake on the Gamecube. Unlike later instalments which honestly just feel like shitty action games, this is a legitimate attempt at horror where you really have to be careful around every corner as one zombie can mean the difference between life and death. Now, given that this is a remake, you'd expect a game that's simply the original with better graphics. Actually, you'd be wron...

In comes Resident Evil Remake for the Gamecube (and Wii) one of my personal favorite games of all time and in my opinion, the best Resident Evil game of all time easily. Shinji Mikami (creator of the series) not only once again invented a masterpiece, he did so out of no luck. He broke down what a survival/horror game was down to it's core and added multiple new elements while changing a lot of the own, yet he still faithfully recreated the original Resident Evil.


You have your same basic Resident Evil controls such as tank movement, camera angle (some of them brilliantly placed) and...

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?

Never expected such a good remake!

The good:

Not only one person to play as... but two, Jill and Chris. They both have their own uniqueness to them so that they won't be just different looking but with the same story.

Major touch-ups on the graphics from the original game for the Playstation, and not only that you can see extra areas never before seen such as the new Graveyard area and the appearance of Lisa Trevor.

There are various endings to go through with each character, each being different from each and having certain plot twists or something you would never expect, they are very interesting indeed.

Also included are a few extra weapons such as the Gasoline which lets you burn the zombies. And on that note as well, the zombies react a little bit better and are actually more lifelike (deadlike?).

The bad:

The story is still pretty much the same so you'll know everything that happens if you played the original.

Aiming wasn't improved much, you still get the three points for aim only which severely reduces your accuracy and increases wasted ammo (which is hard to come by).


After major success of Resident Evil on the Playstation the game eventually was announced to be ported onto the Gamecube, but not just the original, but a remake! I'm glad this happened as well because I certainly enjoyed the first one and this one turned out to be, in my opinion, ten times better.

The major reason I have to say is why this one is so much better is the voice acting. Why? Because if you compare:

Barry (PSX Version): "Take this lock Jill, you'll do much better with it. Since you are the master of the lockpicks."


Barry (Cube Version): "Jill, take this lockpick, I know it'll be ...


The game that started it all

The good:

Good Graphics
Good Sounds
Great Gameplay
Excellent Storyline

The bad:

Voice Acting
Nothing Else


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 ou...



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 o...
