Resident Evil 0 is a great game to own and play. It shows how the events of the series started. It is an entertaining, frustrating and scary journey though a series of unusual environments.

Graphics - 9.5/10

Superb graphics give the game a real-life look. Every speck of detail can clearly be seen. The lighting effects are some of the best I have seen. However I still think the remake has the best graphics out of all of them.

Controls - 7.5/10

On first play the controls can take a little bit of time to get used to, especially the "zapping" system between the characters which can become a little bit annoying at times. However after a little bit of time you will soon get used to them.

Length - 8/10

This will take some tackling to complete upon first play as well as more after that.

Scare Factor - 9/10

The graphics, sounds and gameplay elements do the trick creating atmospheric environments. From spooky dim candlelit rooms to the moans and groans of zombies as well as other enemies. The camera angles also play a good part in the uneasiness in a way that sometimes you can't see what is ahead/around a corner meaning you are anxious to go ahead at times. Sometimes the camera will "follow" you around making it seem as though someone is watching you.

Difficulty - 9/10

Upon first play it will seem very hard. There are more enemies and sometimes ammo is scarce. They have also took away the item box so now you have to leave items that you don't want where your characters are standing. I liked this at first but it soon became a pain. The character zapping system at times is also difficult. Sometimes your characters will need to work together but can sometimes be miles apart from each other depending on whether you cooperate or go alone. Also if one character dies it is game over.

Sound/Music - 10/10

Great music and sound effects, sometimes quite terrifying.

Replay value - 7/10

Depending on how you complete the game a hidden extra will be at your disposal for you to go back and play.

Worst bit - those doors.

Overall 8.5/10

A very good game to add to your Resident Evil collection.
