  1. No Resident Evil has established such gloomy mood as effectively as Resident Evil Zero, which paints every screen with a decadent artistry that is unmatched in its extraordinary detail and inspired darkness. [Dec 2002, p.70]
  2. Zero's sound effects are mighty impressive.
  3. A fantastic achievement and a must buy for any Resident Evil fan. The new gameplay additions may even sway those of you who couldn’t get to grips with Remake.
  4. The complex inventory and quick enemies might have you screaming, but most of the time it’s in a good way.
  5. Where it scores above other games is simply the emotions it inspires.
  6. I didn't find it very scary. Maybe after so many games we're on to its tricks, but there seem to be far less boo! moments than in other RE games.
  7. The bottom line is that Resident Evil Zero's title perfectly describes the content and play value of the game itself.

In terms of graphics, I would put Resident Evil in top 25 best games for GameCube and it should be played at night to see how excellent the graphics are. The controls, music and story are good but I like unlocking the revolver by playing the minigame Leech Hunters. Expand
