Storyline

The year is 1998 and the place is Raccoon City, a small, reserved town in the American Midwest. In the heavily forested surroundings of this peaceful town a series of bizarre murders have been reported to have occurred, with both increasing ferocity and rate of occurrence. When a surviving pair of hikers were discovered at the outskirts of the city and laid claims of a dozen or so attackers who feasted upon their live victims, Raccoon City's police department decide to send in the Alpha Group from their resident specialists, STARS (Special Tactics and Rescue Squad). Alpha Squad set off into the Forest by helicopter, only to lose contact with base ten minutes into their flight. Beta Squad, consisting of Marksman Chris Redfield, Escape Specialist Jill Valentine, Weapons Specialist Barry Burton and Team Leader Albert Wesker amongst others, were subsequently dispatched to investigate their colleagues' disappearance.

Trivia

There are several possible endings according to your choices and which character you're using. The canon ending is Chris, Jill, Rebecca and Barry escaping in Brad's helicopter. See more »

Goofs

There is a secret passage to the caves in the courtyard garden that cannot be accessed because there is a waterfall over it. Entering the caves involves diverting the water. However, getting wet should not deter the playable character from entering, especially since there is a whole section later that takes place inside a flooded shark tank. And even so, there are plenty of objects around that could be used as a make-shift umbrella. See more »

A brilliant remake!
16 November 2008 | by TalesfromTheCryptfanSee all my reviews

In the city of Raccoon City, strange murders have occurred with reports of families and some folks getting eaten by creatures. The Raccoon Police City department sends out the S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team of Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, Albert Wesker, Barry Burton and formerly Joseph Frost are sent to investigate a large mansion in the outskirts of the city. But what they don't know is that inside the place there's dangers galore with zombies, giant snakes and other weird monsters just waiting to have their blood as they must complete their investigation of what is behind the weird killings and the creatures.

A wonderful and absolutely brilliant remake that manages to be better then the original! it stays clear of the cheesy dialog that some fans of the series thought the original game's dialog was stiff that it needed to be improvised but you still can play as either Jill or Chris. It also improves on the original's live-action opening with actors who are just plain bad. The graphics and game-play are really outstanding as it gives us a bigger look at the Mansion and even some brand new puzzles. Here in this new version there's even a Nemesis-esquire female creature named Lisa whom is a true abomination of a creature beyond anything in your nightmares.

The music score for this remake is terrific as it used a remixed version of the original soundtrack score. The game also uses new plot element that enhances the original in every way and it's one hell of a scary and gory video game that will scare the crap out of you.

This game is a solid winner all the ways! strongly a must play.
