The Resident Evil "REmake" is frequently offered as an example of just how fantastic the series was back in the day. With its stunning visuals, impressive additions, and less embarrassing opening cutscene, it's easy to forget that this enhanced version of the survival horror classic sold well under two million copies on the...
Tips, tactics, endings, and advice
If you joined Capcom's survival horror series with its action packed fourth instalment, then you're in for a rude awakening in the recently released Resident Evil HD Remaster. While titles like Outlast and Alien Isolation have plotted a return to the more classical type of video game terror, they're still...
Surprisingly hard to come by
Resident Evil 4's recent remake modernised the classic in several ways, including updating the character model for deuteragonist Ashley Graham, AKA Baby Eagle. Remake Ashley is portrayed by Dutch-born model Ella Freya (who lives and works in Tokyo) and recently recorded her adventure to find a copy in the wild...
The Doctor will see you now
The imminent and eagerly anticipated remake of perhaps the most beloved survival horror game ever made, Capcom's Resident Evil 4, is almost upon us (launching 24th March). In the meantime, though, we did get a decidedly awesome demo for the game, which, as it turns out, actually has a super-secret Mad Chainsaw difficulty...
Who's a good boy?
The Resident Evil 4 remake showing we got last week is still fresh in our minds; we got to go hands-on with the title and were spoiled afterwards with a second trailer, this time focusing on the story. And while RE4 on PS5 looks to remain faithful to the original in most things, one purported aspect has managed to get some fan's...
Hot on the heels of Capcom’s complete Claire Redfield blowout this week, new footage has emerged at Gamescom 2018 showing off her portion of Resident Evil 2’s campaign. In this first Dengeki Online video, the heroine comes face-to-face with Sherry Birkin and her father – although fans of the original will know that the latter...
It turns out that classic survival horror is still popular: Resident Evil HD, the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 remaster of Capcom's legendary GameCube remake, has sold more than one million copies worldwide. When you consider that the first version of the game is now nearly 20 years old, it's impressive that this title continues...
Once bitten, twice shy
There's usually a standout for Pick of the Week, but we're really struggling to choose a favourite this time. Sure, you could make the argument that Saints Row IV: Re-Elected is little more than a re-release, but it comes with Gat Out of Hell, which is brand new. On the flipside, Resident Evil is nothing but a lowly port, too...
Barry Burton demands it
Quit tucking into that Jill Sandwich, and take a look at this: ten whole minutes of Resident Evil Remaster HD footage, running on the PlayStation 4. Also due out on the PlayStation 3 early next year, the title is a port of a port, possibly designed to pull the leg of those who’ve been complaining about the number of...
Dancing with the S.T.A.R.S.
If you’re not a fan of the beret boasting Jill Valentine of old, then you’ll be able to swap the S.T.A.R.S. operative’s uniform for something a little more modern in the upcoming PlayStation 4 re-release of the original Resident Evil. As part of a trailer on the property’s official YouTube channel, Capcom has...
In the courtyard by a licker
The good old Biohazard t-virus has caused a mass of problems over the past 18 years, but it all had to start somewhere. It's those humble beginnings that you'll be able to re-experience, this time in the high definition remake of Resident Evil due out on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 early next year. To help the...
Return to Raccoon City
Resident Evil is set to return early next year on the PlayStation 4, as part of a re-mastered edition of the GameCube’s well regarded REmake. Rumoured earlier in the week, the title has now been officially confirmed by Capcom, and will launch early next year on both the PlayStation 3 and Sony’s next-gen machine...
The intense horror fans first experienced with the release of the original Resident Evil in 1996 is back in this HD remastering of the classic that improves on the praised 2002 "REmake".
Taking place in the now notorious Raccoon City, players choose to take on the role of either S.T.A.R.S. (Special Tactics and Rescue Service) team member Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine who have been sent into the city to find the missing Bravo team. When the team is suddenly attacked by a ferocious group of mutated dogs, desperate for an escape they take shelter in the Mansion, but will they ever get out alive again? Players will need to be brave as they adventure through the dark, enclosed spaces searching out the horrors that await them. With limited ammo and survival items available gamers will need to keep their wits about them to survive the various traps and puzzles that greet them at every stage.
Enhanced for HD game platforms, resolutions and textures have been significantly upgraded, resulting in characters and backgrounds coming to life in greater detail than ever seen before in Resident Evil. Not only will the graphics impress but the tense sound effects have been fully remastered with 5.1 surround support for a greater gaming atmosphere. Players can choose between classic 4:3 ratio or a custom 16:9 widescreen mode that scrolls with the action. The classic control scheme remains for fans of the original play style or there's an alternative scheme where the character moves directly in the direction of the analogue stick.
