Storyline

In this sequel to Resident Evil, the genetically made zombies are back and it's up to two new heroes to stop them. Leon S. Kennedy picked a bad day to join the racoon police department. He finds the town of Raccoon City crawling with zombies. Along the way, he meets Claire Redfield (the sister of Chris Redfield from the first game). Claire has come to the town to find Chris. Leon and Claire decide to separate and search for survivors on thier way to the police station. Along the way, they meet some interesting characters. Leon meets Ada Wong, a mysterious woman who doesn't like talking about what she is up to; Claire meets Sherry Birkin, a troubled little girl searching for her parents. The game comes on two separate disks to follow the separate adventures of Leon and Claire. Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>

Great game from great series
19 July 2003 | by (Norwalk Ohio) – See all my reviews

This game is a must play. You play as either RPD's own first day rookie Leon Scott Kennedy or S.T.A.R.S member sister Claire Redfield in this zombie feasting, cap busting, blood spirting, hell of a good time video game.

When you play as either character the walkthrough is different. I prefer Leon because he can obtain a Shotgun that later in the game enhances into a powerful weapon, a Magnum which also upgrades, a Handgun that upgrades and many more while as Claire has a crowbow and a Grenade Launcher that shoots many different types of rounds.

The bottom line my friends is that this game kicks ass!

10/10
