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

Goofs

During Jill's opening cut scene, when she and Barry investigate the shot, they are shown opening the dining room door quickly and entering. The next shot is of a black close up of the door slowly being opened which leads into the continuing shot of Jill and Barry entering the dining room on the other side. Once on the other side, neither character closes the doors behind them, but once the scene is over, the doors are closed. See more »

A Love Letter from Capcom

I would like to point out how much I adore Capcom for giving the players a thing not many other companies have, a totally re-rendered ultimate version of the original RE, with a lot of added content.

The graphics are some of the best the Gamecube has to offer, boasting chilling life-like fog, intensely detailed backgrounds and nerve-shattering enemies. And the sound is absolutely stunning, with different sounds of footsteps for just about every surface, different howls for every enemy and very realistic sounds of thunder, that really set the mood for any horror game.

Some players might be turned off by the constant running around and little action, but that makes it all the more terrifying when the action gets going. Ammunition is low, there are never enough health kits and one is constantly pushed into narrow hallways.

RE is a tough game, with an emphasis on the "survive" part of horror games. It'll probably take you from 20-25 hours to complete, but those hours will be as nerve-wrecking, mind- shattering and tension-fueled as any other horror game on the market today.

In all, RE has the same style of gameplay as presented in the original, so the haters should stay away, but the fans are in for one heck of a thrill ride.
