The only real difference between the original and the director's cut is the ability to choose what difficulty you want to play, and different camera angle and item places in the Advance game. See more »
Gameplay footage of each playable character is used while the credits roll, but is only available when you play the game that ends with the mansion blowing up. See more »
One of the best computer games you will ever play!
I first played Resident Evil for the Playstation when I was only about 13 or 14. I found it to be a one of the most highly charged and addictive computer games of all time and loved playing it. However I decided to lend it to my friend and the b-tard scratched it completely ruining it!! I NEVER DID GET TO FINISH IT! Although I played the other 2 sequels to it, the fact that I never got around to finishing the first one still went around my head like and obsession and then I finally got my hands on a copy a while back ago so I decided to finish what I had set out to do all those years ago. I don't know what the difference is between the directors cut and this one but I still went ahead with it and well I truly felt satisfied! The story really does not need explaining as I could still pretty vividly remember what it is about however having said that acting that seemed to amaze me now just seems so cheesy that it seems like a badly made B-movie and that also goes for the dialogue. But where after all these years Resident Evil still is impressive is on the level of game play it offers, there is so much for you to do along with creepy music and still a few jump-out-at-you scene however and it may just seem a bit like running around but trust me - it is so much fun. The controls may seem a little fiddles-om at first but once you get used to the it is worth it and there might be a few things to do that one might find tiresome but trust me it is all worth quality of this game. I would urge people who are going re-visit this classic to play as Chris Redfeild because it is harder as he can carry less items than his counterpart Jill Valentine and that will make you enjoy the game a lot more whilst Jill Valentine has the ability to carry more weapons and fire power which makes you whizz right through it. I manage to complete the game as Chris in 5 hours and 21 mins, while Jill took me 4 hours and 15 mins. To conclude Resident Evil is the game that after all this time still has not lost any of its shine, I am aware that a remake was made for the Gamecube which looks brilliant but however this was a piece computer game nostalgia which I truly enjoyed.
