This is without a doubt the greatest game I've ever played. A REmake of the PlayStation one original the graphics are spectacular. The pre rendered backgrounds are at near photo quality and the shadows Jill Valentine casts across the objects will leave you wandering backwards and forwards admiring the way it bends. Then you realise a Crimson heads just run in. Your rear end bites down hard and you bolt, for this isn't the shooty shooty laughy laughy, look at everyone in the airport dying under my hell fire kind of a game. This game you have to think. Do I have enough bullets? When we'll I need this item? Shall I carry this with me, I only have 6 places to place items. Have I examined everything. Is this room fully explored? Do I have enough ink ribbons to save.
Your mind is constantly being exercised by the process of playing. The greatest thing about this game is you can make it as difficult as you want. There's even a setting where you can unlock a kamikaze zombie that if you kill him he blows up taking the mansion with him. So, basically they add a zombie that's faster than you that you can't kill. Also, you can make the magic lock boxes only store the item you placed there meaning a whole plethora of exploration has to be done to find that crank, or lighter you left somewhere, was it that one who knows?
The talking cut scenes have been rerecorded from the hammy originals which is slightly upsetting for the PS1 ones were hilariously bad but it did take away from the darkness of the game. I guess comic relief is good, but if you want balls to the wall, lose the battle of the bowls, hell ride of a horror fest pop this in and get cracking.
Summary: Great re-imagining of a great game on the most underrated console made
