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.
Resident Evil on the Switch is a familiar experience with some excellent gameplay that can be enjoyed in handheld mode. The few flaws it has shouldn’t detract, but the price might.
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.
