Resident Evil is an HD remastered version of the 2002 original survival horror game’s remake. This version features improved graphics, full support of high-definition displays and many more visual overhauls while keeping the gameplay features mostly intact.
The story of the game follows two Special Forces agents through a city full of nightmarish enemies, with different puzzles and challenges set upon the player, and an ultimate goal of revealing the mystery of the catastrophe that occurred in the Raccoon City. Each of the two selectable characters has their unique abilities, which gradually affects gameplay, as some locations would only be accessible with only one character.
The game is the ‘founding father’ of the survival horror genre, and it is seen through the ambient soundtrack, which stresses the player even more, apart from limited ammunition and far outnumbering enemies. Different approaches must be chosen, as the game’s save points are scarce, and the characters may meet their demise at the nearest corner.
