5.0 out of 5 stars Needs no introduction - completely flawless, 30 May 2003
This review is from: Resident Evil - Platinum (PS) (Video Game)
It's not often one finds a game that remains playable (or even relevant) a whopping SEVEN years after its release but there's probably nobody out there with a PS2 who doesn't own this gem.
The premise is brilliantly original and this game's locale (the titanic, sprawling mansion) is arguably the best out of all subsequent imitators. At that point, RE was also the longest running game available and is still incredibly engaging.
For those few who don't already know, RE is a third person (the camera does not move and is outside of the character) blend of zombie culling and puzzle solving, but neither of these facets are easy in any sense of the word. Monsters evolve throughout the game and riddles become genuinely challenging.
Although graphically a bit dated now, especially on bigger tellies, hyperactive 3D rendering is simply not necessary, and the sound is wonderfully atmospheric.
This game's pull, though, lies in its duration. First time players can expect to stay in the mansion for at least 8 hours, and with two characters generating two completely different adventures that's a lot of game for a tenner.
Just make sure you've got a memory card...
