Resident Evil 2

The Greater of Two Evils

by Ben Reeves

For more than a decade, Resident Evil has felt like a franchise struggling to find its identity. The seminal Resident Evil 4 put a greater focus on action, but subsequent entries lost their luster. Resident Evil 7 was a major course correction but still felt like a radical reinvention that was finding its footing. Fortunately, Capcom might have finally found the magic once again. This brilliant homage to Resident Evil 2 not only revitalizes many of the survival horror elements that put the series on the map, it paves a brilliant path for the future of the franchise.

In its era, Resident Evil 2 was the pinnacle of survival horror. While the original Resident Evil established a formula, its sequel raised the stakes in nearly every way with tense exploration and nail-biting action. In 1998, Resident Evil 2's action was as intense as its atmosphere was horrifying, so it became a benchmark for PS One horror. Unfortunately, Capcom's classic has aged about as poorly as a zombie-eaten corpse.

Capcom's remake gives Racoon City a much-needed facelift, but a new third person perspective does even more to update Resident Evil's action. This remake returns to the series' slower-paced roots. Thankfully, slowing down the shootouts doesn't diminish Resident Evil's intensity. On the contrary, Resident Evil's action feels better than it has in years, and its smooth shooter controls are incredibly intuitive. Zombies shamble forward like herky-jerky wind-up toys. These animations are unnerving, but they also create an exciting metagame in which you must time your shots perfectly to hit these brain eaters in the brainpan. If you miss your shot, they keep stumbling forward, meaning that even two flaking zombies can pose a challenging if you're off your A game.

Concept

Revive Capcom's classic survival horror game with more than a visual overhaul. This feels like a new game that plays homage to the original - not a classic with a new coat of paint

Graphics

Its new third-person perspective and detailed 3D environments bring Racoon City's police department to life like never before

Sound

The soundtrack is subtle but effective. However, creaking floorboards and other ambient effects do an even better job creating an uncomfortable atmosphere

Playability

RE 2's action is slow-paced but intense; the environmental puzzles are clever and never grow frustrating

Entertainment

For Resident Evil fans this is a must-play, but even those without nostalgia for RE 2 will have a good time
