  • I recommend playing on a big screen TV (if available) in a room, with all the lights off, because this game is seriously SCARY
  • The mansion looks amazing, using pre-rendered backgrounds, and the characters and enemies are very detailed and well animated as well
  • Resident Evil is probably one of the best looking Game Cubes ever created

      Since the release of Resident Evil for the Playstation, many remakes have arisen, but none have been nearly as good as Resident Evil for the Nintendo Game Cube.

      The story of Resident Evil is good, but basic. You choose between 2 characters, Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine, both of which are part of Alpha team of S.T.A.R.S., a special police force. Alpha team is sent out into the forest to find the survivors from the downed helicopter of Bravo team. After landing in the forest, Alpha team is forced into a mansion in the forest, and from there the goal is survival.

      Resident Evil for the Playstation was one of the original survival horror game, and Resident Evil for the Game Cube (commonly referred to as REmake) delivers the scares. I recommend playing on


      a big screen TV (if available) in a room, with all the lights off, because this game is seriously SCARY. Resident Evil is filled with many heart-stopping moments, where paranoia will take control of you and nothing will happen, and when you will feel safe, but be far from it.

      Another plus side of this game is that the graphics are astonishing. The mansion looks amazing, using pre-rendered backgrounds, and the characters and enemies are very detailed and well animated as well. Resident Evil is probably one of the best looking Game Cubes ever created.

      Like I mentioned before, there are 2 characters to choose from, both with slightly different storylines and different available skills and items to collect. Jill Valentine’s main perk is the fact that she can pick locks that Chris Redfield ...


      • would normally need to find a key for, and can also pick locks to cabinets that are completely unavailable to Chris, meaning she can obtain more ammo and healing items. Jill also can hold 2 more items than Chris, which is very useful. Chris, on the other hand starts with a lighter (Jill CAN obtain the lighter later in the game), which he can use to burn dead zombies, so they don’t come back to life as faster, stronger zombies known as Crimson Heads. Generally, Jill is the easier path to take, if you are interested in trying the easier mode first.

        Now we get to controls, which have always been a downfall of the original Resident Evil games. Resident Evil uses controls commonly referred to as “tank” controls, meaning that the character

        uses the left and right positions of the control stick to turn and the up and down positions to move back and forth. WARNING: The controls are hard to use at first, but become MUCH easier as you play, until they feel natural. I recommend borrowing the game from a friend if they own it to try it first, because the controls do take time to learn, and if you aren’t satisfied with them, it can ruin the whole game for you.

        I was able to easily learn how to control the game, and as a result had a great time scouring the zombie-infested mansion in search of items to complete the game’s mind-bending puzzles. I gave this game an 8 out of 10, based on the graphics, gameplay, controls, and general level of entertainment.
