Resident Evil Zero felt like a dated game in 2002, and an additional 14 years hasn’t exactly helped the game feel fresh. While the modern controls are a nice addition, they’re not nearly enough to make this a great game anymore. That said, it’s still the best way to play Resident Evil Zero by a mile. It won’t blow anyone away, but Capcom has done a serviceable job with this HD remaster.
Resident Evil 2 is a polished, respectful remake of a survival horror classic that probably would have benefitted from a slightly more daring approach. Hints of a braver revamp are sprinkled throughout, but it doesn’t take the risks necessary to join the canon of truly great video game remakes. Make no mistake though, if you loved the original Resident Evil 2, you’ll likely love the remake, and new players who can tolerate a few old-school quirks ought to have a gruesome good time as well.
Overall, I have to say that this remake is everything I’ve hoped for and more. Capcom has really gone a long way to please the fans of the series, and they have certainly succeeded in that. I heartily recommend this game, not just to fans of the series, but to all gamers who love the horror genre, as this is a game all the fans were crying out for. This is the game that gave me those same thrills I experienced 20 years ago, and I am glad that I had the chance to experience it again.
