5.0 out of 5 stars "RESIDENT EVIL!!!" He Said In A Deep Voice 11 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Resident Evil. The game series that gave birth to "Survival Horror." The game series that made zombies cool. The game series that made stars out of Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine. It can be argued that the Resident Evil series has lost its way since the start of the PS2 days. But the PSone games? Capcom certainly knew how to make them back in the 90's, and Resident Evil from 1996 is yet another PSone classic.

The story takes place in the future time of July 1998...the future time from 1996's POV that is. A special task force from the Raccoon City Police Department known as STARS Alpha Team is searching for their missing fellow STARS members from the Bravo Team in the forests northwest of Raccoon City. Both teams are investigating some weird murder cases that are taking place in the forests, with victims apparently being eaten. When the Alpha Team land they are attacked by flesh-eating dogs and are forced to run away and hide in a nearby mansion. But this is only the beginning of their worse nightmare.

Before you start the game you have a choice of two characters to play with. Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine, which is basically an Easy and Hard mode. Jill's game is easier. She has eight inventory slots, access to a lockpick, later access to a bazooka and can do certain tasks that Chris can't. Chris's game is harder. He only has six inventory slots, more enemies to kill and er...can't play music. He can however run faster than Jill and take more damage before he pops his clogs.

When you start the game the first thing you'll notice is the voice acting (yes, you'll notice it even before the graphics). Whatever negative words you can think of it describes the quality of the acting perfectly. It stinks.

5.0 out of 5 stars A legitimate, worthy classic 9 Mar 2010
By Rambleast Reviews TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Several nights ago and a fair bit before I knew it I had popped Resident Evil into the PS3 and was playing away. I'm not a fan of revisiting games from what I consider gaming's awkward period, that odd couple of years of polygonal hell and messy 3D controls lodged after the 2D success of the Mega Drive and SNES but before the glory years of the PS2 and Tekken Tag Tournament (really) onwards. Many times I've tried to revisit Metal Gear Solid, and despite my huge affection for every choice made in the creation of that game, I simply can't play it. It's too difficult. You can't see where you're aiming half the time and you health bar is like this > < small. Other classic titles that have got the better of me from this period include Tekken 2 (crouch and kick is the only way I can play this one), Super Mario 64 (going back to that tri-pronged controller is just too complicated for this spoiled brain) and Crash Bandicoot, whose insistence on using the D-Pad for movement in his fully 3D world has lessened my respect for him. Bad Crash.

Not so Resident Evil. I sat through the game in two sittings (I've been known to do it in one, once even twice in a row) and despite noting how terrible the character models look I found the game as fresh as I always have. The controls (which I recall dividing people at the time who just couldn't get around the turning scheme, morons) are so very simple, and the characters responsive and quick (making the keeper's attack from the closet quite pointless is you're equipped with anything other than the default Beretta). I can quote huge chunks of dialogue from the game, so getting back to the good old, pretension-free days was bliss, as the games' acting saw a marked improvement from as soon as the second game onward.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch out...its a monster!!! 19 Mar 2014
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.

This disc works perfectly. A previous one I bought did not, so I was a little skeptical about this one, but it works fine and I have enjoyed playing the game, Thank you

Bought this for my husband to play. He's not keen on the new ones as they seem to have lost that original puzzleyness (new word invented). He loves it. In great condition too. Thanks.
