Product Description

From Amazon.ca

Resident Evil, the game that is often credited with starting the survival-horror genre, is being reinvented for the GameCube. For those unfamiliar with the series, a mysterious corporation has secretly been performing ungodly biotech experiments in the sleepy little town of Raccoon City. When reports of gory attacks come in from nearby areas, two crack military squads are sent to investigate. Players take the role of either sharpshooter Chris Redfield or demolitions expert Jill Valentine to track down the source of the town's problems--specifically, something in a decaying mansion that's mutating animals into grotesque killers and turning humans into bloodthirsty zombies. Supplies and ammunition are scarce, so players have to know when to fight, when to run, and how to keep their wits about them. Players can't afford to waste their shots and expect their characters to survive.

The story is being retrofitted with motion-captured animation, next-generation graphics, real-time lighting and shadow effects, new areas, and newly rendered in-game video segments to create an even more cinematic experience. Also, a redesigned combat system lets players attack and defend themselves with a variety of items found in the environment.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Rebirth of a new Nightmare.... July 14 2004
Format:Video Game
Resident Evil the Remake is easily one of the best looking Games to ever be created to a console system. The graphics are just plain beautiful. The controls...well...uh..mmhh..SUCKS!
I don't get how people wyn about the camera angle...It was find to me. A little frustraiting but fine.
I loved this game even though Zero was a disapointment...I loved ZERO but still The remake will be a classic in the RE series.
Lets start of by saying RE is a very messed up game...Biological mutating monsters, Zombies, ect...The game is just plain creepy..The Remake makes silent hill 3 look like another episode of micky mouse.
Lets start off with my review of everything in the game now...
The controlls..
Yes the controlls suck! Big time! I hated em'...Couldn't stand em...But I still managed to beat the game..It's 2 disks I think..
Capcom should have done better on the controlls.....4/5...yea...after all that whyning I still give it a 4/5..hmmm
The graphics..
Do I really need to review this?.....5/5!!!
The story..
Great...just like the Original except better and nothing was censored like the original PSX version in the U.S. Very smart..very cool and very exciting. The story is also great cause it has some twists and turns...Great..5/5..
I liked the gameplay alot...the graphics saved it alittle though..The part with the tanks with the shark scenario with Jill and Chris was brilliant...the water movement was just...GORGIOUS....My spelling sucks I know...The tryant part was fun too...Everything was fun...and Creeeeeeeeepy...5/5
Is this the best Resident Evil game ever?...
Oh hell no...the best RE game was 3..Nemisis...

5.0 out of 5 stars Resident Evil: Return of the Clunky Controls! July 9 2004
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
For those of you who don't know, "Resident Evil" was a super popular survival/horror game that originally appeared on the PlayStation. It has since spawned several sequals, although after the third they started to really kinda suck.
Well, the other year Capcom re-released the original "Resident Evil", with updated graphics and extended gameplay, for the GameCube. I bought it yesterday and played it for about eight hours, as Jill. It's a far cry from the original, that's for sure.
Things that have changed:
Voice acting has improved drastically. When you first enter the mansion you don't see anybody making strange, exaggerated arm gestures and rattle off absurd lines (like when Barry gives Jill the lockpick and says that she, "a master of unlocking", could use it better).
Graphics are much, much better--candle flames look damned good, for one, and the human characters move their mouths and blink and their eyes glint, that sort of thing. Zombies don't look quite so ridiculous.
Gameplay has been extended enourmously, and the layout of the mansion is quite different. Based on seemingly trivial things that you do, the story can take more twists and turns than it did before and often it isn't until much later that you find out that you've screwed up beyond all hope.
You can now defend yourself if attacked--Jill can carry a tazer and a few daggers. That way, you can actually do something if a zombie grabs you instead of just try to wrestle free.
Things that haven't changed:
The controls are still clunky and for the first hour it's a struggle just to get around a corner, but it's not impossible to adjust.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome (read the book too) July 4 2004
Format:Video Game
I really like this game. I think it has the most difference from the original. It looks great, with the environments matching those in Silent Hill. But since there isn't blood everywhere, you can see a little better. The camera angles are annoying sometimes, and it's especially confusing in the beginning. It's tough to control, because you turn as slowly as the zombies and you can't really control the gun. It would be nice if you could blow off zombie heads by pointing the gun up just a little, but you can't. There are weapons that shoot off their heads anyway, like the Magnum. And if you use the shotgun right, you can use that to do it, too. There are no good melee weapons, and you'd get killed trying to kill much with the knife. The voice acting was alright, and I had sympathy for some of the characters. There is some replay value because there are different difficulties, such as invisible enemy and real survivor. You get rewards for defeating the game in a certain amount of time or on a certain level. So overall, the game was fun and is worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite game ever by far! July 4 2004
Format:Video Game
I had never played a Resident Evil game before I bought this game. I didn't know what to expect, but I had high hopes. And man, I sure wasn't disappointed. Resident Evil lives up to any expectation you can ever have. I had read reviews for it before buying it, (only two days after its release) and read that the controls are terrible and too hard to get used to. I read the manual and began playing and the controls were simple. It took me about two minutes to get completely used to every control for the game. My first time through I began with the Hiking (Easy) difficulty, but go slightly bored due to the lack of zombies. So I began playing on Mountain Climbing (Normal) and had tons of fun finding the best way to maneuver around monsters. However I've now played Resident Evil so many times I've memorized everything in the game. So due to this I have unlocked everything possible, including the Rocket Launcher. It's not too difficult to tell some of you, my total time was actually 1:46:02, and yes, it was the Hard difficulty. Sorry if I'm bragging... Now, let's review shall we?
The graphics in Resident Evil are superb, the best graphics I've seen on a console. The lighting and shadow effects are excellent, especially dealing with flames. And character models are superb. Monsters are almost too realistic. And of course the Mansion, Residence, Caverns, and Laboratory are all excellent looking. The layout is also very easy to memorize.
The gameplay is excellent. A lot of people say the controls are clunky and too hard to use. But they aren't hard at all. I had them mastered in no time.
The music in Resident Evil is another thing that makes it so great. Some parts the music makes the game very very intense.
