The Video Game Critic (Oct 27, 2012)
Resident Evil 2 is true survival horror at its best, and if you think this game has aged poorly, you need to go back and take another look.
Etwas ganz Besonders ist die technische Seite des Spiels: Auf dem 512 MBit großen Modul haben minutenlange Render-Sequenzen ebenso Platz gefunden wie glasklare Sprachausgabe und geniale Render-Backgrounds. Ein Novum auf dem N64! Man bekommt es mit der Angst zu tun, wenn man seelenruhig durch einen Gang läuft und urplötzlich durch verbarrikadierte Fenster von Zombies angegriffen wird. Um das Spiel also vollends zu genießen, ist es ratsam, nachts zu spielen, jede Lichtquelle auszuschalten und den filmreifen Sound möglichst laut zu stellen. Dann erst wirst du merken, wie phantastisch dieses Spiel wirklich ist.

Porter Resident Evil 2 sur Nintendo 64 était un challenge de taille... Pari réussi ! Amateurs du genre, il vous le faut !

I personally think, Resident Evil 2 is one of the scariest games I've ever had the pleasure of playing. I say this because even though I've played this before on the PSX, it still made me crap my self the first time I played the N64 version!:) Those damn zombies just have a habit of sneaking up on you when you least expect it! I only wish I had the memory expansion because I know it's gonna be even better. If that is at all possible. This game must be pretty scary and violent because it has a 15 certificate! After playing both versions of the game, I can quite easily say that I really do prefer this version of the game!

Hardcore Resident Evil fans have more than a few reasons to check out the Nintendo 64 version of the game and, for those of you who have never played it for PlayStation or PC, it's a must-have. So what are you waiting for? The zombies are getting restless.
Nintendo Life (Oct 16, 2010)
Dread and looming terror accompany those who explore the haunting, unique, blood- and personality-soaked locales of Resident Evil 2. Its once-stunning graphics show their age a bit and the controls take some getting used to, but beyond its niggling flaws lie a game that will keep you entertained for a very long time, featuring what amount to eight unique ways to play and a storyline that, while paling in comparison to some narrative-heavy games of today, will still draw you in and keep you and captivated from beginning to end.
90 (Feb 10, 2000)
Au final, Resident Evil 2 sur N64 reste une simple adaptation de sa version PSX. Rien de plus et rien de moins... Cependant, adapter un tel chef d'oeuvre sur une console qui ne s'y prêtait vraiment pas, cela mérite vraiment un grand bravo et on passera sur le scénario trop ressemblant au premier ou les petits problèmes de maniabilité.
X64 (Jan, 2000)
Resident Evil 2 aurait eu un 99% s'il avait été inédit aux yeux de tous. Néanmoins, le jeu reste toujours aussi passionnant et divertissant.
GameSpot (Nov 19, 1999)
But even with those few detractions, Resident Evil 2 is still as much an experience as it is a game. A huge improvement over the first title, RE2 succeeds in making you feel as though you're in the middle of a horror film - one in which you'll jump many, many times. If you've already played the PlayStation or PC versions of RE2, there's really no reason to buy this game, but for N64 owners who haven't tried yet, it's an absolute must-have.
Gaming Target (Jun 22, 2000)
Aside from the controls, RE2 doesn't have many problems. It is a must buy, or at least a good rental if you dislike playing video games for the N64 targeted for a younger audience. Here is to Capcom and the intelligent thinking when they picked up a 512MB cart for this game!
80 (UK) (Apr 22, 2000)
To summarise, then, the game is a fantastic piece of work, and hasn't been done any less justice on the Nintendo 64 - it remains a genuinely scary, thrilling and totally engaging action/adventure. If you fancy having yourself a good month or so to finish a game in its entirety (and I'm not talking on and off gaming, here), then you can't go far wrong with Resident Evil 2, as long as you keep a few spare pairs of pants handy. Not that I... oh, never mind.
HappyPuppy (Dec 14, 1999)
Resident Evil 2 is like a good horror movie. It works its way into your subconscious and when you least want it to, it reminds you that it's still there. Long after you're done playing, you'll be walking down a dark street and you'll swear you hear groans and footsteps. If you thought the creepiest thing about your N64 was the kid at Electronics Boutique that sold it to you, fire up RE2 and turn out the lights.
För hardcorefantatikerna finns det tillräckligt med inslag för att de ska bli intresserade av den här versionen. För andra inte helt insatta, är Resident Evil 2 ett självklart alternativ. Det har alla de kvaliteter som ett spel i den här genren ska ha. Och med sina två intensiva grunduppdrag och allt annat smått och gott lär det inte göra någon besviken.
