The year is 1998 and the place is Raccoon City, a small, reserved town in the American Midwest. 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.

A brilliant remake!
16 November 2008 | by (Albuquerque New Mexico) – See all my reviews

In the city of Raccoon City, strange murders have occurred with reports of families and some folks getting eaten by creatures. The Raccoon Police City department sends out the S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team of Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, Albert Wesker, Barry Burton and formerly Joseph Frost are sent to investigate a large mansion in the outskirts of the city. But what they don't know is that inside the place there's dangers galore with zombies, giant snakes and other weird monsters just waiting to have their blood as they must complete their investigation of what is behind the weird killings and the creatures.

A wonderful and absolutely brilliant remake that manages to be better then the original! it stays clear of the cheesy dialog that some fans of the series thought the original game's dialog was stiff that it needed to be improvised but you still can play as either Jill or Chris. It also improves on the original's live-action opening with actors who are just plain bad. The graphics and game-play are really outstanding as it gives us a bigger look at the Mansion and even some brand new puzzles. Here in this new version there's even a Nemesis-esquire female creature named Lisa whom is a true abomination of a creature beyond anything in your nightmares.

The music score for this remake is terrific as it used a remixed version of the original soundtrack score. The game also uses new plot element that enhances the original in every way and it's one hell of a scary and gory video game that will scare the crap out of you.

This game is a solid winner all the ways! strongly a must play.
