Description

You're Dead Scared -- Face Your Fear!

A series of gorey cannibalistic attacks surrounding a remote mountain range on the outskirts of Raccoon City brings in S.T.A.R.S. (Special Tactics And Rescue Squad) to investigate. On arrival, Bravo Team's communications are abruptly cut off. Now it's up to your team.

You arrive at an isolated mansion under-powered and on the run. Arm yourself with anything you can find: Knives, Pistols, Shotguns, Flamethrowers -- search for hidden rounds to stay alive!
There are puzzles to solve, traps to disarm, and mysteries to uncover while trying to avoid a blood-bath with the freaks of nature that populate the mansion. Each lurking horror you survive will bring you closer to the source of the Resident Evil.

* Unprecedented detail-intense texture maps, shadows and lighting effects.
* Unique camera angles, action perspectives and realistic polygon character graphics.
* Face unstoppable zombies, monstrous spiders, mutated snakes and other unknown horrors.
* Explore hundreds of rooms in the gigantic mansion, secret underground lairs, the garden, the graveyard and guest houses to solve mind-bending mysteries and discover fascinating secrets.
* Ominous digital surround soundtrack adds to the rich and evil 3D environment.
* Choose which trooper to play; each creates their own graphic storyline.
