Resident Evil 0
When it was first released on the Nintendo GameCube, Resident Evil 0 was a huge deal. It was fairly well received and it is actually one of the more forgotten about games in the Resident Evil series. Capcom love to re-release their older Resident Evil games and that is just what they have done with Resident Evil 0, but they have given it an HD coating and improved a few things too.
So, It Starts
One of the things that I love about Resident Evil 0 is how it is a prequel to the very first game in the series. It actually works way better than you would think and the story is one of the things that I do like best about the game. Resident Evil 0 will see you play as Rebecca Chambers who is a rookie on the S.T.A.R.S team and who is sent to investigate a series of strange murders.
Well, something goes wrong and she finds herself on a train that has crashed. This is where we meet our second playable character, Billy. Billy is a prisoner who is actually on death row and his story is also quite interesting.
Ok So Now It Is Your Turn
The “gimmick” of Resident Evil 0 is that you can switch between the two characters. Past Resident Evil games have let you play as different characters, but that was always a pre-determined thing. Resident Evil 0 changes things up by not just letting you play as Rebecca and Billy, but changing to either one of them whenever you want.
This swapping feature is a huge part of the game and you will have to use each character’s strengths to get through the game. This is done very well and the two of them can work together to do puzzles. It is not uncommon to have Rebecca doing one thing somewhere, Billy another and the two coming together for one puzzle. It is actually quite well done and I feel that Resident Evil 0 has some of the better puzzles in the series.
Classic Resident Evil
While Resident Evil 0 does have this new mechanic. The core game is still that of classic Resident Evil. You have to conserve your ammo, look for herbs and always decide if running away is better than trying to stand and fight.
Hey That Is New
To be fair to Capcom they did a lot of good with this HD remaster of Resident Evil 0. To start with the game looks great, I am very impressed with the visuals that the game has and the sound as well has been given a bit of a kick. They really did a wonderful job in making Resident Evil 0 look as good as possible.
Another new feature is the controls. You can play this with the old-style Resident Evil controls if you like. They have though introduced a more “modern” kind of control scheme which my suit new players better. As a long time, player of the Resident Evil series I really cannot say for sure if I like the new control scheme better as I am so used to those old tank controls.
Capcom has also added a really fun Wesker mode! When you beat the game, you can then play through it as a super jacked up and overpowered Albert Wesker and let me tell you this is an absolute riot and a lot of fun!
I think that Resident Evil 0 is a really great game and Capcom have made it even better with Resident Evil 0 HD. The game looks great, sounds great and those puzzles are very clever and really do make you think. Plus, the story is really exciting and one of the more underrated in the whole series if you ask me.
- The HD remaster looks great
- The sound has some real punch to it
- Switching between Billy and Rebecca is fun
- One of the better stories in the entire series
- New Wesker mode is great
- Controls may throw some people off
- Some of the puzzles are quite challenging
