Advantages Good game, good playability
Disadvantages Graphics could have been better
Since I’ve never been much of a fan of Sony, the Resident Evil hoopla was always something I heard about, and never tried. When the one and only RE for the N64, RE2, was released, I decided to check it out. At first, I abandoned the game for 2 reasons; first, I couldn’t figure out what to do, and at the time I never liked to use guides for games...big mistake. And second was the controls and camera angles. Most can relate. The trademark controls and camera angles have always been frowned at. After boring myself to death with all my other N64 games, I decided to give it one last chance, this time with a guide. As I was finally able to progress, and get used to the quirky controls (easier than meets the thumb), I saw that the camera angles were making me feel strange. After a zombie kill, my pants always felt a bit heavier. Camera angles were the only reason these games were so famous when you think about it. No other type of angle, whether it be first-person or second-person could captivate the crimson head coming at me, where I couldn’t see him. Since this was my first ever RE game, I feel this review is quite special. Anyways, with the previous RE and RE Zero for Game Cube exclusives, I couldn’t wait for Nintendo to come up with the rest of the series. Under my very nose did they finish them. I was expecting the last on, RE3: Nemesis, to come out at the end of 2003, so when I saw both of them up at Blockbuster, I was instantly thinking something had gone wrong. I was expecting 2 things, lower quality graphics, and lower quality sound. When I looked at the back of the box, the graphics did look inferior to the previous GC titles, so I decided to have a look-see for myself. For some reason, RE2 was apparently testing my faith. The graphics look great. I regularly don’t care much for graphics, but with the eye-spectacles from the previous GC RE games, I was really hoping for no less.
