    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.

    It's absolutely stunning game.

    Pros.:
    - Further development of the original game story. 0, 1, 2 are now very alike and follow the same style and narrative pattern that makes them iconic, great, interesting and immortal.
    - The gameplay is very smooth. There are no spots you feel "WTF is that".
    - Music could be better but follows the same style as RE1.
    - Characters and their stories. It's makes so much sense now with Enrico.

    Cons.:
    - I guess the game is pretty short. But that's the only cons.

    Also, I think the story may be a bit better regarding Billy's departure. But we have what we have.

    Recommend to everyone. Unlike RE6.

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.

    A descent remaster of an old Resident Evil title.
    + Nice background. On a laptop screen it looks like a triple A game. Character models aged not so well but still no problem. The least improved had those CGI videos. Now they look too blury.
    + Old fashioned controls and slow paced action with puzzles. Classics.
    + Some new modes and features may make some of the fans stay with the a game a bit longer. Though I beat the game on normal within almost 10h, which is just enough. Not too short and not too annoyingly long.
    - Backtacking due to the inventory limitations a really a pane. Especially closer to the end when you have several weapons and ammo types for grenade launcher. They even have a limit for the items per room (location). Why??
    - The story is intriguing, but akward sometimes. No extra endings anymore and a sour disapointment for the faith of some characters.
