Trivia

In the cemetery directly behind the mansion (the one you enter through the painting in the main hall), all of the tombstones have ancient Greek texts on them. One word that is on every stone phonetically translates to 'Chapchom' in English, a reference to Capcom, the game's developer. It is best seen when walking towards the subterranean tomb, on one of the tombstones seen in the foreground. See more »

Goofs

When you play as Chris and fight Lisa along with Wesker, if Lisa should knock Wesker off and falls to his death, the games ending does not change, and both Chris and Wesker acts as if the event never happens. See more »

The best game ever made...
1 May 2002 | by Lando_HassSee 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.
