The best Resident Evil game ever to be released.
Introduction - Resident Evil is an action adventure horror game. It has an interesting storyline and gameplay that will keep you in the edge of your seat for the majority of the game. Remade from the original PS 1 version, this one has been improved to include better graphics, sounds and voice acting, making it unarguably the best RE game to be ever released.
Gameplay - Game is very fun to play. Scarce and limited ammo make it more challenging, not to mention the occasional enemy popping up here and there. It can get pretty scary the 1st time around and very surprising. Difficulties vary depending on the ones like easy or normal and/or the character you choose. There are also special difficulties you can unlock later in the game. Character difficulties just add more backtracking and less item space, though. Controls are pretty hard to get at first, but once you get the hang of it, they are very easy.
Story - A lot of bizarre murder cases have started appearing on the outskirts of Raccoon City. The RPD send in the S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team to investigate...but shortly after, they lost contact. Then they decided to send in the Alpha Team to search for them. A while after searching, they find their crashed helicopter. Shortly after landing, they are attacked by some strange creatures, forcing them to retreat to a nearby mansion. Their mission is not only to find their teammates...but also to get out of there alive.
Graphics/Sound - Graphics are awesome. Definitely a great improvement from the original version. Some areas increase the 'creepy' factor with scarce light. As for the sound, music is very scary and gives the game a dark and eerie feeling; voice acting is pretty solid, and the special effects are high end. The special effects are the soul of the game, giving it a dark and ominous feeling in every corner you turn.
Play Time/Replayability - Most it will take to clear is about 3-4 hours. After doing so, replayability is pretty high. Lots of things to do, files to collect and special things to unlock. This will keep you entertained for some time.
Final Recommendation -I highly recommend this game. It has entertaining gameplay, great quality sound and voice acting and excellent graphics. It's great, and one of the best in the series. Years may pass, but Resident Evil will remain to still be as good as it is today.
