Summary

A good classic horror game.

The Good

Since the incident of the mansion has passed,involving Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine,Raccoon City has been a mess. Chris Redfield has gone missing and the game does not mention Valentine. After a while Raccoon City turns into a city of blood-thirsty zombies. Claire Redfield,the sister of Chris,comes to Raccoon City to find her brother.Leon Kennedy is a new cop on Raccoon City Police Department. He is the only cop left alive in the city. Leon and Claire meet each other and the game begins. In Resident Evil 2 you choose either Leon or Claire. Each with their own storyline. The games difficulty is arrangeable,well at least it is on the dual shock version. The story lines are great as the game makes sure that you know the story lines. Resident Evil 2 has great environment graphics! The game has great weapons and surprisingly easy puzzles! The voice acting is way better in this one unlike the crappy acting in part 1.

The Bad

The character and creature graphics are poor and I'm sure they could have made them better. The gameplay gets boring after a while and only at certain spots do you get suspicious and wonder what's going to happen next. Some enemies in this game will really start to get on your nerves! Players will find themselves dying a million times by a dog or Mr.x. The cut scenes are too long in my opinion. The game starts out kinda slow but it'll eventually get better.

The Bottom Line

Resident Evil 2 is a game that will definitely give you the creeps. Besides it's bad stuff it's still a good game overall. I highly recommend this game to any horror game fan or a Resident Evil fan.

Grade:B+
