Better than the remake!!
16 November 2002 | by (The Thuderdome, b**ch!!) – See all my reviews

Resident Evil 0 takes place BEFORE the mansion incident that occurred. You play as both Rebecca Chambers, and convict Billy Cohen. Billy is sentenced to death, and is being transported through a train. Meanwhile, Rebecca's helicopter crashes, and most of her team disappears. She gets on the train, only to find out that every passenger, and conductor has been transformed into flesh eating zombies. Rebecca and Billy have to team up in order to stay alive. Resident Evil 0 delivers a wide variety of game play. This latest installment to the series has new game play. Unlike the previous Resident Evil games, you can control two people, and switch between characters whenever you fell that it is necessary. The controls take some time to get used to, but still, Resident Evil 0 has better controls than the remake of Resident Evil 1. For example, it is easier to control your character, the button set-up is back the way it used to be, and it seems to be easier to play. Resident Evil 0 lacks the interactivity that the remake had, but to make up for that, it has gotten rid of all the jaggies that the remake had. Still, the graphics seem to be the best featured on a console so far. Each little detail in the environment is noticeable, which gives the game more of a disturbing tone. Resident Evil 0 is more scarier than the last one, because most of the monsters look more eerie. A new feature in Resident Evil 0, is the ability to drop items whenever you need to, this feature has taken the place of the old item boxes in the previous games. The game play is solid, and addicting, even though it seems to be the same old thing. This is one of those Resident Evil games where you just cant put down the controller. The difficulty level seems to have risen, now the puzzles seem to be harder, yet tedious. The sound effects have not bogged down in quality, character movements sound perfect. More enemies have been introduced into the game, such as mutant leeches, monkeys, scorpions, centipedes, and frogs. Overall, Resident Evil 0 proves to be the best Resident Evil game to date.

Graphics: 10 out of 10 Controls: 9 out of 10. Game play: 10 out of 10. Sound: 10 out of 10. Difficulty: 10 out of 10.

Best Feature: Great graphics, and entertaining cut-scenes. Worst Feature: The absence of item boxes makes the game harder.

Overall score: 10 out of 10.
