Addictive and clever, easier too.
8 December 2004 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

I loved the first RE game on the Gamecube. The graphics, the sound, the ambiance were all top-notch. Never before (with the exceptions of the Myst games on the PC) had I been so totally immersed in the atmosphere of a video game before. RE was thrilling and frightening.

All of that returns in Resident Evil Zero, a prequel about the events leading up to the T-Virus outbreak in the Umbrella Mansion in the Arklay Mountains. There are a few differences though.

This time around you are in control of 2 characters. One is Rebecca Chambers, the medic girl from RE. And the other is Billy Cowen, an escaped convict who teams up with Rebecca when they meet on an abandoned train.

Together they take on Zombies and giant insects as they try to figure out what has happened in the Umbrella training facility. It's a lot easier than the first one. Though there are far more enemies to blow away, there are way more bullets. So you don't have to be so careful about reserving ammo. The Crimson Heads are also gone (thankfully) so when a zombie is dead it stays dead. And lets be honest, those Crimson Heads were terrifying.

Originally this game was made for the Nintendo 64 but was never released so they just remade it for the Gamecube. I wise choice as the game fully shows off what the Gamecube is capable of. RE Zero is full of ominous camera angles, dingy locations and a dark atmosphere extending all the way down to the tiniest detail. Though I did particularly like the bright and somber (?) ending.

Complete this game quick enough and you'll unlock a bonus game called Leech Hunter in which Rebecca and Billy (now in different clothing) can run around the training facility blasting at things. It's just for fun but it's still quite cool.

If you're a fan of RE 1 then RE Zero is a must have. Not quite as good but still a damn cool game!
