Brilliant game, my first survival horror game that I played back in the day and I am here to tell you now that it scared the pants off me. That first zombie that you run into gave me the heebie jeebies like I have never had. put a few bullets into it and it kept getting up. They are actually faster then the zombies in the sequel games.
I know everyone gives out about the seriously "wooden" acting in this but I honestly like the fact that its so bad..it gives you something to laugh about. The rest of the game is so damn tense, its very quiet, you are all by yourself with whatever weapon you have and there could be something just around the next corner ready to jump out at you and tear your head off.
sometimes you can hear them walking around and you pass the controller to someone else because you are bricking it. Its not what is waiting for you really its just because you don't know what is there....waiting. The part with the hunters really freaked me out they are so fast, you know it is coming and can kill you really easy.
This is a game I would recommend to old fans to be honest because it is very much dated but I truly don't think it has lost any of its essence. The music and monsters are still there and you just cant help but be nervous. Standing the tests of time.
