Resident Evil 0 deserves more credit.

Bạn đang xem: Resident evil 0

Of all the more traditional games in the series prior to Resident Evil 4"s more action-y gameplay overhaul, 0 receives the most trash talk. It first appeared in 2002, well after all but the most ardent of fans were tired of the survival horror formula & ready for something new. Despite a few minor additions, Resident Evil 0 didn"t offer that.

But that"s precisely why this Resident Evil 0 HD re-release from Capcom is so useful. With distance from the atmosphere surrounding its release, it"s a lot easier to view Resident Evil 0 for exactly what it is: a flawed but generally satisfying và, more importantly, smart take on Capcom"s approach khổng lồ horror.

Of all the traditional games in the series, Resident Evil 0 receives the most trash talk

As the name might suggest, Resident Evil 0 is set just before the events of the first game in the series. Rebecca Chambers, a field medic with the military team STARS, is sent khổng lồ track down an escaped convict aboard a train on the outskirts of Raccoon City. Before she can take murderer Billy Coen inkhổng lồ custody, though, the train is overrun by zombies, forcing the two characters on opposite sides of the law khổng lồ team up. Of course.

While Resident Evil games featuring multiple characters with intersecting stories is nothing new, the partnership between Billy & Rebecca is on a totally different level. Aside from a few setpieces where they briefly go along branching paths, these two spover the entire game together. You"re able to lớn swap between them at any point, và they have differing skillsets that require doing so often.

inventory juggling is made worse by the huge amount of backtracking

While it kills a little bit Resident Evil"s traditional tension, I loved having a secondary character to lớn bachồng me up in hairy situations. When you"re not directly controlling a character, a shockingly solid AI takes over. Initially I was hesitant to equip the AI character with a gun and risk them wasting my very limited ammo, but I soon discovered that they"re conservative & careful in how & when they fire a weapon.

Another benefit of the two-survivor system is that it allows you actually carry more weapons. As is normal in the older Resident Evil games, one of the key challenges to lớn Resident Evil 0 is managing a tiny inventory crammed full of whatever rare and precious resources you stumble upon (not lớn mention keys và other puzzle solutions). Where lugging around a shotgun that takes up two full inventory spaces would seem like an absurd ask in many older Resident Evil games, it was no big giảm giá khuyến mãi with two characters & two inventories to pachồng full of stuff.


That"s not to lớn say everything involving the inventory & thành tích management is good. Inexplicably, Resident Evil 0 has no item boxes, an element of the series that had been well-established by this point, which allowed you lớn drop items up in one location"s box và pichồng them up in any other area that had a box. With no công trình box, your only choice is to just drop items on the floor & return to them when you have sầu more space. If you play like me, you"ll find yourself juggling limited inventory space fairly often, dropping whatever you can spare from your inventory lớn make room for keys.

That inventory juggling is made worse by the huge amount of backtracking required in Resident Evil 0, particularly in the game"s final area. Without spoiling too much, Rebecca và Billy eventually leave the train for more familiar Resident Evil settings, và these tkết thúc to lớn require lots of jogging baông chồng và forth between the same rooms & hallways to lớn unlochồng new paths one by one.

WESKER MODE

Most of the changes in Resident Evil 0"s HD upgrade are visual, resulting in a quite beautiful game. But there is one new major gameplay addition: Wesker Mode, a new option that unlocks after you beat the game once.

In Wesker Mode, Billy Coen is replaced as a playable character by long-time series villain Albert Wesker. Notably, this is a gameplay & visual change only — Coen"s voice is still featured in cutscenes, and the story is unchanged.

However, the gameplay change is significant. Wesker has some incredible abilities, including being able to dash và powerful psychic powers that he can use to lớn lash out at enemies from a distance, even if he"s out of his regular gun ammo. It"s fun lớn run through the game as an overpowered quái dị, and it"s also smart that this is saved for a post-game bonus.


if you love the cornier approach to survival horror, Resident Evil 0 is a blast

And yet, aside from the very last area, I found Resident Evil 0"s locales interesting enough lớn alleviate any frustration from backtracking. These are tightly-designed settings, paced perfectly khổng lồ emphasize tension. I was rarely sent running in a direction I"d already been in without the area suddenly being invaded by a new nightmare creature, or without finding myself unexpectedly stalked by a returning foe. Even as the game advanced và I built up a healthy backpachồng of ammunition for my guns, I always felt just one or two bad rooms away from losing everything.

For as much as Resident Evil 0 embraces the series" classic gameplay, it also adopts the goofy, heavy-handed & poorly voice-acted storytelling of the franchise"s earliest entries. If you"re expecting serious drama from Rebecca và Billy, you"re in for a disappointment, & don"t even get me started on the game"s hilariously ineffective villain. But if you love the cornier approach lớn survival horror, before everything took itself so seriously, it"s a blast.


Wrap Up: Resident Evil 0 is better in retrospect than it was at release

Removed from the moment in time when it debuted, Resident Evil 0 is just a really good classic RE game. It didn"t phối the standards for this style of game the way Resident Evil 1 did; it"s not as ambitious or unblemished as Resident Evil 2. But it"s far from the mess that history made it out to lớn be. Whether you"re a veteran who"s played it before or a new người who never tried out Resident Evil 0, it"s good enough lớn deserve sầu this second chance.
