The host of the virus

The Good

Resident Evil showed people what a survival horror game was. The graphics, as old as they were, had a proud feeling behind it, like one of a kind. The controls were a little tough to get used to, but after a while it just made the game better. The endless hallways and surprising zombies keep you on your toes. There's nothing better than walking down a quiet hallway and a zombie crashed through a window. The two available characters had stories of there own, Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine. The story is the greatest thing about the game. While playing you totally forget that you are playing a video game, you think your in the game trying to escape the mansion. Thats how good the stories are, you can get into the stories by reading the files laying around the game.

The Bad

There wasn't really anything I didn't like. There's things that you really shouldn't complain about, like the poor voice-overs and the graphics. That's what you get for Playstation 1996, but for that it was awesome. I think that the two characters stories don't interact with each other is a minus. It would be great to play as Chris and have Jill meet up with you somewhere, and the other way around.

The Bottom Line

Resident Evil isn't something your going to like if you are a next generation gamer or have never played a survival horror game. I hear many people complain about how bad the Resident Evil series is, but like I said, your not going to like it if you haven't been playing for a long time, and if you do like it, your one of a kind. Resident Evil something that you have to have a liking for it before you even play it. This game has a story to easily fall into. The twists in the game are constantly making you think of who's doing what. Play it to know the story.
