Mad zombie orgy monster mash!

AdvantagesZombies, shotguns, carnage, hoo-gah!

DisadvantagesStraight port of the Playstation game, takes no advantage of a PC's power.

"RESIDENT EVIL 2 Muugh! Raaaauuuugh! Graagh! Bacon sandwich… are the normal zombie-like sounds that emanate from most bedrooms after a Friday night out with the beer monkeys. Along with the feeble, unbalanced shuffling to the kitchen and pathetic attempts to out-stare the fridge into opening because you've forgotten what a handle is, you begin to recognise how spot on George A. Romero's assessment of a crumbling society within Dawn of the Dead really ..." Read review

Good Conversion Of A Great Game - Resi2

AdvantagesGameplay, Plot, Sound & Music, Longevity & is worlds better than Resi1.

DisadvantagesNothing new on PlayStation original.

"Forking out 8 quid at EB for this vital piece of gaming has made me a happy man! Admittedly a man who fully expects to be brutally mauled by the nearest flock of crows or timid pet alsatian, but this is a small pay-off to owning what will become a great addition to your collection. It was the first game I owned on my first console, the Playstation, so I have fond memories of staying up late scaring myself to sleep (don't we all). Now I've fallen ..." Read review

Not if you suffer from high blood pressure!

AdvantagesGraphics, zombies

Disadvantagesview a bit sad

"This must be one of the scariest games I have played. I must agree with the comments made be below about the puzzles being easy but then again, most games today are about violence and gameplay. In a lot of ways this is a shame. The weapons are fantastic and it is a very addictive game. It has lasted an extremely long time and still going strong. One fault I found was the view is a bit annoying as the computer continually changes the screen. As ..." Read review

A great improvement over number 1

AdvantagesImproved graphics, sound, voice acting, stability

DisadvantagesUnfortunately we should've demanded these things in the RE1, the graphics and sound are still well below par of today's games

"...see how it compared to resident evil 1. Thankfully I was impressed, and ordered the game. One of my biggest gripes has been addressed: the stability. Resident evil 2 is much more stable than its predecessor and has crashed very few times. The graphics are greatly improved, though still not up to the normal expected PC standards. Objects which you can interact with are still drawn in a higher resolution, though the problem is not so pronounced ..." Read review

Scared straight

Advantagesvery scary

DisadvantagesToo hard on original, too easy on arrange

"When I bought Resident Evil 2, I didn't really know what to expect. All I'd heard was that is was very scary, but a good game. Both of these are definitely true, but I was also greatly impressed by the whole storyline of the thing, that really wraps you in. Basically (it comes as 2 CDs, one male (Leon) and one female (which I haven't used - but it gives a slightly different storyline with different tasks to complete), you are in a city which has been ..."

Puzzles too easy?

AdvantagesGreat Graphics, Sound, Gameplay

DisadvantagesPre-rendered backrounds, thats it!

"Resident evil is the first game I have "ever, ever" completed. It had me gripped from start to finish. This game is ideal for the gamer who doesn't play on a regular basis but enjoys a good game. It has all the elements you want, suspense, puzzles, action, great graphics, good sound. Suspense: Have you ever seen the Birds by Alfred Hitchcock? There's a scene like that in there! Puzzles: Yes they are not difficult, and for your experienced ..." Read review

Bigger and better than its predecessor

Advantagesgreat visuals, engaging story, lots of violence, engaging puzzles, very atmospheric

Disadvantagesnone

"...huge success of the first Resident Evil game, Resident Evil 2 effectively offers the same experience all over again, only this time bigger, gorier and with much improved visuals. As before the game is played from an isometric perspective, with rendered 3D characters roaming through stationary, beautifully designed backdrops, the gameplay consisting of a mix of ultraviolent zombi-killing mayhem and cerebral real-world puzzles that must be completed ..."

Zombie see, Zombie kill

AdvantagesGreat Gameplay and story, Plenty of shootin,

Disadvantagesmore of a shooter than survival, no long appeal

"after completing the first resident evil game i was eager to play the second but after a while i became disapointed. Just like the first resident evil you play as a S.T.A.R.S member but this time you are in an abandoned zombie filled city. On first looks the camera angles/ graphics are very similar to the prequel, but the gameplay is a different level altogether. You still have to solve puzzles and find items in order to progress, however it ..." Read review

Not as good on the PC

AdvantagesGreat game

Disadvantagesnone

"An ultimate role play/adventure/beat em up game. A great blent of blood,guts, head munching living dead creatures who like the taste of brains Its a great conceptual game based on the idea of "night of the living Dead" type films. if you ever get the chance to play this on the playstation, do it. It is fab. It may be a couple of years old but it is still a good alternative to Tomb Raider/ Duke Nukem type games. It involves shooting a lot of Zombies ..." Read review
