Resident Evil HD Remaster (Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, & PC) Review

Capcom released their game, Resident Evil, in 1996 which became a massive hit and helped create a new genre called “survival horror”. Since the release of the cult classic, they have spawned numerous sequels that have expanded on the original story, but have gone in a different direction since the original title, especially gameplay wise.

In 2002, Capcom completely revamped the original game and released it on Nintendo Gamecube with new graphics and much much improved voice acting. Now for the next generation of gamers, Capcom has released the HD Remaster of the game in order to bring a new experience to the Next Gen gaming world. Will Resident Evil HD Remaster, a original remake, be something that will please new and old fans alike? Let’s get into the review and Find out!

Story:

The story of Resident Evil tells the tale of a two elite team called STARS_GROUP_PICS.T.A.R.S and Bravo, as they investigate mysterious murders that have been going on the area of Raccoon City. The game starts with the S.T.A.R.S team that consists of Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield, Albert Wesker, Barry Burton, and Joseph Frost investigating what has happened to the Bravo team, who they have lost contact during the initial investigation.

After being attacked by vicious dogs, the S.T.A.R.S team take refugee in a nearby mansion, and this is where the plot thickens and the game really begins.  The entire story of Resident Evil is very great, there is a lot of mystery and conspiracy  behind it all that, everything won’t be clear until the very end.

Gameplay:

Resident Evil HD Remaster is a single player third person survival horror. You maneuver your character throughout various rooms, hallways, gardens, and basements. You of course run into zombies, dogs, and many other creatures in this mansion.

In this game, you have a choice of choosing between two characters, latestChris Redfield or Jill Valentine. Each character goes through many of the same situations, but have different outcomes. Chris and Jill have various differences they will impact gameplay. For example, Chris only begins the game with a hunting knife, while Jill has the knife and handgun at the start. It can sometimes challenge the player’s ability to survive during the journey through this massive mansion.

A great thing about this game is the fact that you are able to make choices that will change the story for better or for worst. Some choices could actually affect the final ending of the game because they are numerous endings for both Jill and Chris.

 

Presentation:

Controls: This can be something that can either help or hurt this game. There are fixed camera angles, meaning, as you explore different areas of the mansion, the camera angle will change thus may change the way your control your character. This is a big issue many have had with older Resident Evil games, that is still present in this game. Capcom tried to create a new control scheme, that would allow for players to move their character a bit more free, but it’s just as clunky as the original controls.

Graphics: This is where the game truly shines,  the original release of Resident Evil Remake on Nintendo Gamecube was ahead of its time. Now that Capcom has brought the Remaster to Current Gen and Next Gen consoles, it has been made even better. This game looks best played on Next Gen Consoles, because it runs in 1080p and looks like it could be a regular Next Gen title.

One thing that was very upsetting though was that some of the CGI cutscenes, other than the intro and outro, are the same Gamecube  CGI scenes. This was very lazy on Capcom’s part and it made no sense to make the entire game better, but leave the blurry Gamecube scenes still included.

But other than that, the in-game cutscenes look really good and the character models look better than before. The various environments of the game, will surprise some new to the series because there are so many different areas to explore, that there is even a achievement/trophy for going to every place in the game.

Sound: Resident Evil HD Remaster has the same spooky soundtrack as it once did, but many who have played the game for the first time, have criticized the voice acting in this version of the game. But it is such an update from the voice acting in the original title, that fans of the series will know what I mean.

Final Thoughts:

Resident Evil HD Remaster is a nearly perfect game! It re-introduces resident-evil-hd-remaster-screen-26the series in a great way. Though there is some lazy cutscene problems that throw off the rather impressively good looking game, it is not a reason to not purchase this. For $20, this is a really great buy with some added extras for fans of the series to enjoy. But now the big question is, by giving the HD touch to Resident Evil Remake, it has now opened the door for fans and now new players to want older/new games done in the same fashion. Will Capcom deliver? Only time will tell.
