Nothing is generic here. There is no rote, bland content only there to pad for time. Every feature of every place in this game is something you haven't seen anywhere else, maybe it's something you haven't seen in any other game before or since. If there's an herb there, that's the only place that herb will ever be. If there's a rolling boulder trap, it's not a minor inconvenience you can take on the face, suffer -10 HP, and keep on trucking, you either find a way to dive out of its path or it squashes you right back to the Game Over screen. What's best about Resident Evil, for all its burdensome controls and obfuscating camera angles, is that it's never arbitrary; nothing in this game is randomly allocated. If there's a zombie in that hallway, they put him there for a reason. If something's in your way, it's because the game has carefully crafted a route around it, you just haven't seen it yet.

Gameplay wise, it's Resident Evil, so expect lots of puzzles, an interesting array of monsters to tackle, the odd satisfying boss fight, and some extremely effective exploration that slowly but gradually opens up the huge mansion. It's a very strong update of a classic game that is certainly worth its asking price.

Ich mag Resident Evil. Immer noch. Und als Fan des GameCube-Remakes freut es mich besonders, dass ich den gruseligen Abstecher ins Herrenhaus jetzt mit zeitgemĂ€ĂŸer 16:9-Anpassung und echtem 5.1-Surround-Klang erneut erleben darf. Weniger angetan bin ich dagegen von der schwankenden QualitĂ€t der grafischen HD-Aufbereitung: WĂ€hrend die Figuren von der Schönheitsoperation profitieren, pendeln die Kulissen zwischen sichtbarer Restaurierung und liebloser Konvertierung.(...) Okay, ich freue mich auch so ĂŒber meine RĂŒckkehr ins Spencer-Anwesen. Der Vater des Survival-Horrors hat zwar nach all den Jahren etwas an Faszination eingebĂŒĂŸt und wirkt stellenweise einfach nicht mehr zeitgemĂ€ĂŸ. Aber er schafft es immer noch, mich besser zu unterhalten, als es das enttĂ€uschende Resident Evil 6 jemals konnte.

Resident Evil will always be remembered as a classic video game that popularized the survival horror genre. Even to this day it still holds up as a fantastic video game. The puzzles are still a lot of fun to solve and shooting zombies is still a thrill. 20 years later Resident Evil is still worth your time. I wish more thought would have been put into the new control scheme to make it smoother, and there are features missing from versions of Resident Evil that came out 18 years ago, but this HD Remaster is still worth playing. Let’s just hope the next time Capcom re-releases Resident Evil they can take a look at getting rid of the inventory system instead of trying to fix the controls.

Games TM (7 out of 10) (70%)

You're going to fall into one of two camps - either it won't be as great as you remember it being, or you've not played it yet and it just won't live up the hype everyone else has been drenching it in for the last decade-plus. It would be impossible at this stage, but even with that in mind, Resident Evil is still a survival horror classic - this just isn't a classic re-REmake. Now we'd just like Capcom to make a sequel worthy of this game's legacy.
