    Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster proves that 20 years is still young, outside esports of course. [March 2016]

    Nearly identical title as it was years ago. This necessity for the fans of the series could be a painful journey into the history for others. [Issue#260]

    RE Zero is a great example of why old-school horror releases are beloved and special. With a few new technical upgrades, it has largely made a graceful return on current systems.

    Zero’s not a bad game. The opening train sequence is one of the coolest parts of the entire series, and while the character swapping mechanic isn’t the deepest gameplay addition, it adds a sense of cooperation missing from the other games. But its poor pacing and excruciating inventory management problems keep its unique additions from having the impact they should. The visual upgrades and improved control options help to make revisiting it a bit easier, but its flaws stand out all the more now, a decade-and-a-half later.

    Sufficiently good-looking, sufficiently entertaining and very antiquated. Still, it’s nice that you don’t have to buy a Nintendo console anymore to get acquainted with this part of the series. [Issue#206, p.61]

    A beautiful remaster of a game that tries to recreate the magic of the original Resident Evil, but repeatedly fails to do so.

    Nostalgia with a visual upgrade but gameplay stagnation.

    I love resident evil series, i dunno why the 0 game is not very loved like others but this game has innovated with the elimination of itemI love resident evil series, i dunno why the 0 game is not very loved like others but this game has innovated with the elimination of item boxes, this means that is more difficult do speedruns and will need a little more strategy to beat the game without backtracking a lot, is also the only game of the ancient gameplay where "hard" is really f*ck*ng hard, i love this game more than 3 entry.

Definetely a must play, it's one of the best "old" resident evils, would rank it right next to the first one, it's just a great experience overall, eventhough the hard mode is REALLY hardcore, don't try hard mode before getting experience with the game.

I did not like this remaster because for me it has a high price for a small work they have done. It feels like they just refined the graphics and resell the game. I spent 5 mins setting up my screen resolution and other video options. The game is basically good could say that is a classic ( some might disagree ) but this remaster is bad because they should have changed more that just graphics. If you played the original game i do not recommend you to buy this because it is high price for something you already played and just improved graphics Expand
