Despite shortcomings, the remake of the first Resident Evil title is a tense, exciting romp through a mansion that has a ton of creepy secrets. There are definite signs of aging here that make me appreciate current day luxuries, but once I got past those I enjoyed Resident Evil’s puzzles, scares and horrors.
A big question a lot of gamers will need to ask themselves is just how much they value the ability to play Resident Evil on the go. At a price of ÂŁ29.99 ($29.99) for a game that a) is an HD version of a now 15-plus-year-old game and b) can be found much cheaper on other systems it does seem on the high side. As novel as it is being able to play a full-fledged Resident Evil game anywhere, itâs a tough job to justify the inflated amount.
All these years later, Resident Evil remains an excellent survival-horror game. The puzzles are still good, the brief bouts of action are still tense, and the scares still deliver even if you know about them beforehand. The appeal of this port is the fact that the game can now be portable, so the benefits of the smaller screen really come into play. It might have slightly longer load times in some areas, but if you want to play the remade classic on the go, this is a well-done port.
