Resident Evil 0

Overview -

Last year, Capcom remastered the outstanding 'Resident Evil' remake made for the Gamecube in 2002, and brought it to modern platforms. The success of the remaster has led to Capcom reconsidering their stance on the series and contemplating bringing it back to its survival horror roots, having already announced a remake of 'Resident Evil 2'.

It makes sense then, that they've also decided to remaster the series prequel 'Resident Evil 0', bringing another horror classic to a new audience.

Video Review


One of the best looking remasters ever. Character models have been entirely replaced with terrific new ones, and the already artistically stunning backgrounds have been cleaned up in a way that makes them look tremendous. 'Resident Evil' already got a fantastic remaster, but the work here is even better than that. The new lighting is fantastic and really brings much of the game to life in a way that honestly makes this one of the prettiest games in the last few years. It's hard to believe that this was originally from 2002, because the game looks nothing short of excellent. The only sore spot, and it's minor, is that the few CG cutscenes in the game have aged rather poorly and haven't really received much attention here.

Audio Review


The voice acting in '0' ranges from mediocre (Rebecca and Billy) to awful (just about everyone else), but the rest of the audio is terrific. The music is great, and the sound design is outstanding. Hearing the rain beating down on the Ecliptic Express or the creak of some of the game's doors is wonderful, and makes the game scarier in a lot of really cool ways.

Final Thoughts

A tremendous remaster of a really great game. 'Resident Evil 0' might be a little too difficult at times, and the inventory system really could've used some tweaking, but there's never been a better way to experience this survival horror classic. If you've never played the game before, it's a fantastic time, and if you have, it's hard not to appreciate just how much has been done to make this version of it extremely worthwhile.
