In the heavily forested surroundings of this peaceful town a series of bizarre murders have been reported to have occurred, with both increasing ferocity and rate of occurrence. When a surviving pair of hikers were discovered at the outskirts of the city and laid claims of a dozen or so attackers who feasted upon their live victims, Raccoon City's police department decide to send in the Alpha Group from their resident specialists, STARS (Special Tactics and Rescue Squad).

Did You Know?


A full remake of the original Resident Evil (1996), the new version includes an altered mansion layout with brand new rooms and enemies and new plot elements that take into account developments in the later Biohazard games. Also, the entire script was retranslated, eliminating the notoriously poor English dialogue that was present in the original. See more »


Every time a player character pushes a tall object, their hands push against the object with their hands/arms flat against it, despite the fact many such objects include suits of armor and intricate statues. See more »

Crazy Credits

After the credits, a screen shows up telling you what your play time was. Wesker's voice can be heard telling your character that you did well, which is strange he said that because in this game series, Wesker prefers Chris and Jill dead. See more »

The best game ever made...
1 May 2002 | by (The Thuderdome, b**ch!!) – See all my reviews

Resident Evil for the Gamecube is a remake of the original that hit the Playstation in 1996.This game is a completely different game,it is alot harder and it has alot more areas.The graphics are revolutionary,the gameplay is excellent and the control is pretty good.Resident Evil has new updated graphics that are so far the best out there,you can see every little detail on the characters' clothing,and the lighting and fire effects are amazing.This one also has better sound effects,the gun shots sound more realistic,and the zombies/enemies sound more disturbing.The game is also very interactive,for example,you can burn zombies when they're on the floor,stab them in the head,shove grenades in they're throat,and shock them.The games controlling in my opinion is the same,the control scheme is the same as the previous games,the joystick is a little to sensitive,but it cant effect your gameplay.Capcom has completely remade Resident Evil,it has some new bosses,more areas,more items,different puzzles,and I think a new gun.From What I have heard,Resident Evil has lots more replay value,it has 10 different endings,and invisible enemy mode.The best part of this game is indeed the fun factor.You can now stab zombies in the head,shock them with a tazer,and put grenades down they're throat.The blood effects are more realistic,when you shoot a zombie,the blood will go on the carpets and soak into it,and when you stomp on zombies heads,blood splatters all over the floor.Really,Resident Evil is so far the best game on the Gamecube right now. Graphics:10/10 ; Control:10/10 ; Gameplay:10/10 ; Fun factor:10/10. Resident Evil is a great game that delivers everything you could possibly want in a game.10 out of 10.
