A survival horror masterpiece!!
26 January 2019 | by toshirosanSee all my reviews

Why can I only give this 10 stars? I would give it 100 if I could!

Well done to Capcom, this is how a remake should be done! Resident Evil was the first game I ever played and RE2 was the best game in the entire series for me. The original game was stunning for its time but this remake came at the perfect time and boy did Capcom go all out. Resident Evil 2 remake is a survival horror masterpiece.

The sense of nostalgia is definitely there as it brings back all of the great memories from the original, and sets an unbelievably high standard for video game remakes. The attention to detail that the creators have put into this game is stunning and gives you a real sense of being scared and Resident Evil 2 not only looks great, it plays well, and it forces you into a series of dark encounters that are a total rush.

This is definitely not a game for the faint hearted but a game everyone should own. A stunningly beautiful game and definitely a contender for GOTY!!
