Après avoir fait un premier remake magistral en 2002 d’une oeuvre datant de 1996, Capcom est rattrapé par ses vieux démons et livre un portage Switch conventionnel de la version "HD" sortie en 2015. S’il reste encore des joueurs n’ayant jamais franchi la porte du manoir Spencer et qui souhaitent le faire aussi bien devant leur télévision que dans les transports en commun, cette édition Switch devrait les intéresser.

Capcom liefert für Switch eine gute Umsetzung des Remasters von Resident Evil ab. (...) Größter Vorteil der Switch-Version im Vergleich mit den anderen Fassungen: Man kann den Survival-Horror jetzt auch mobil genießen, wobei die ohnehin schon sehenswerte Render-Kulisse auf dem kleineren Bildschirm noch einen Tick eindrucksvoller und vor allem knackig scharf wirkt. Weniger glücklich bin ich mit der Steuerung im Handheld-Betrieb, weil ich als Fan der alten Panzersteuerung nicht auf den Analogstick zurückgreifen will und das grausige Digipad der Joy-Cons für mich einen ähnlich großen Horror darstellt wie das Zombie-Szenario. (...) Der Vater des Survival-Horrors hat zwar nach all den Jahren etwas an Faszination eingebüßt und wirkt stellenweise nicht mehr zeitgemäß. Aber er schafft es immer noch, mich besser zu unterhalten, als so mancher moderner Vertreter des Genres.

Way Too Many Games (8 out of 10) (80%)

With this game, you know what you’re getting. It’s the same Resident Evil from 2002, but with a few extra quality of life improvements, as well as the fact you can play it on-the-go. Honestly, that’s all that was needed. It’s a game that managed to age much better than a lot of its peers, despite the confusing control layout and slightly long loading times. If you’re a Resident Evil and horror fan, don’t think twice. You may think that playing a game like this on a small screen might reduce its overall scare factor, but you’re wrong. It’s as tense as ever and that makes it as fun as it has ever been.

In many ways, the first Resident Evil is – and can only ever be – a product of its time. Even when tuned and honed and buffed to perfection, it has its own idiosyncratic personality and ways; change them and you change the game. Cumbersome and horrifying in equal measure, it refuses to let you have your brains and eat them, so while series veterans will know what to expect, new players should prepare themselves for a schooling in game mechanics which have largely fallen out of fashion. Context is essential, then, but the Switch port shows this classic at its absolute best and there’s arguably no better way to sample the original Resident Evil formula in 2019, provided you’ve got the stomach for it.

An undeniable classic, and well worth a look for those wondering about the origins of what's become an incredible series, existing fans are sure to be delighted with the prospect of being able to play Resi on the go. But without the nostalgia factor, first-timers might be slightly less enthused by the overall experience.
