  1. The control in RE is completely unforgiving and ruins what should have, could have and would have been a great game.
  2. 60
    The same formula that was once termed as ground-breaking now become tired and old.
  3. The bottom line is that Resident Evil Zero's title perfectly describes the content and play value of the game itself.

    YES!! I really like all the RE games and this one blew all the other ones away! The graphics made this game 100 times more scary then the YES!! I really like all the RE games and this one blew all the other ones away! The graphics made this game 100 times more scary then the others. The way you can play with Billy and Rebecca is one of a kind and I hope that others will come out just like it. I love this game!!! Full Review »

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. I always felt this was a game that didn't need to be made,the story was convoluted,I didn't like the drop and swap item mechanic or swapping between characters at times,the visuals were good but there was a blandness about it,everything seemed brownish yellow.IMO it would have been better if the game just stared Billy,trying to tie in Bravo team just has you asking more questions,in fact im surprised there wasn't a scene at the end of RE0 where Rebecca losses her memory as she never talks about the events of Zero ever again´╗┐ Full Review »

    Billy's character was so one-dimensional to me. Rebecca on the other hand, was quite impressive in the way that she was so fragile and naiveBilly's character was so one-dimensional to me. Rebecca on the other hand, was quite impressive in the way that she was so fragile and naive (keeping in mind that she's only about 18 in the game). The controls are awful for the whole partner system. I'd love to see this re-released as a 2-Player game. Full Review »
