Trivia

Along with the remake, this is the only "Biohazard"/"Resident Evil" to feature a "best-case-scenario" ending which does not elude to a possible sequel or spin-off and suggests that "everything is finally over". The reason for this is possibly because the company was uncertain how well the game would be received, so this game could stand on its own story-wise if it failed economically. See more »

Goofs

In the underground Arklay Lab, there are a few rooms where there's a red light that would light up under an emergency. Once the triggering system is activated (an emergency situation), those red warning lights never lit up. See more »

simply amazing
3 November 2004 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

one of the best games in the world to date,and still going strong,this has paved the way for games such as parasite eve and silent hill in my opinion,resident evil truly is a classic,from the graphics,to the suspense of walking down a dimly lit corridor,with eerie music being played in the background,wondering whether you heard the squelch of a footstep behind you,to the plot of the games(i'm not going to give anything away!).sure enough there are flaws (the dialogue is atrocious,but it doesn't bother me) but every game has flaws,i've bought near enough every resi game thats followed on from this,and will carry on to do so,i'm hooked! amazing 10/10 :)
