Resident Evil 0 remains a good game in the series. Even with your AI partner's occasional lapses in judgment, the dynamic makes the standard formula feel fresh, while the lack of chests can be either good or bad depending on your outlook. The stunted load times ruin the mood since they occur all the time. If you don't mind that and you want to own the game in a portable form, this port isn't all that bad.
Resident Evil 0 is a product of Capcom experimenting with the series as it made the jump from fixed camera angles to a third-person behind the shoulder perspective. It’s certainly an interesting part of the franchise’s history, but if you’re not a huge fan of the series, it might just be worth skipping.
Another difference over the GameCube version is an unlockable mode after you finish the game called Wesker Mode. This mode allows you to play through the game with Wesker, rather than Billy. The big thing here though is that this is a powered up Wesker from Resident Evil 5, meaning it is not just a pallet swap. Of course, this makes the game much easier but I think that is the point. It's now more about how fast you can get through the game, as opposed to simply staying alive and making it to the end.
