    This HD remaster of Resident Evil 0 is an easy recommendation for anyone who enjoyed the original GameCube release and has enough patience to navigate the sometimes tedious inventory management.

    Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster has improved graphics, some new stuff, new modes and still is a great classic Resident Evil game 13 years later.

    An uneven but occasionally excellent update to one of Resi's most overlooked entries. [March 2016, p.74]

    Resident Evil Zero's remaster doesn't manage to surpass the series' previous remaster work, mostly missing the opportunity to fix some of the glaring issues the original edition of the game had.

    Resident Evil Zero HD isn’t exactly the most beloved game in the franchise, yet the high quality of the HD upgrade makes it well worth a look for fans of the series. It still features the main issues that the previous version had, but the detail that’s gone into the restoration work is highly commendable and the new Wesker mode is worth unlocking. If only the base game wasn’t more inventory management than surviving a zombie outbreak.

    A joyless game. Every section feels like a tedious lateral thinking puzzle – "the farmer has a fox, a chicken and some grain, but can only carry one at a time" – and the locations and creatures are half-heartedly designed. If you haven't played it, it provides valuable insight into where Resident Evil, and perhaps games at large, went wrong over the past decade or so. Other than that, it feels like work.

    Love the game one of the best entries in the series! Scary, atmospheric, great characters, story, everything about this game is so AWESOME. MyLove the game one of the best entries in the series! Scary, atmospheric, great characters, story, everything about this game is so AWESOME. My advice to everyone not to trust the game sites bull crap review since all are biased, especially IGNorants, they hire ppl who are new to the series who have no experience playing these games to review the games and they complain about stupid minor issues like inventory case, loading doors, fixed camera angles, etc. I think it's perfect the way it is, and that is what made the old RE games so memorable and legendary than the new ones.

I didn't like the luck of storage boxes but all the other things gave me the nostalgia that i needed. Nowadays the most gamers searching about graphics but they don't see the basics things which must have a game. I thing that it is a MUST. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Spoilers in the end of the review, I will let you know.
    Resident Evil Zero was the first game in the saga that I played and is to date one of my favorites, starting with the new modality of introducing two playable characters and how you interact with them, the different locations where you play and of course their protagonists, Rebecca Chambers and Billy Coen seem to me one of the most underrated characters in the franchise and that personally (more Rebecca) are my favorites. The only bad thing about the game, in my opinion, was that at times it felt a bit repetitive and therefore boring, but this only on a few occasions, I also don't understand why they removed the trunks of objects since if it is very angry to be returning for objects you left on the floor.
    Entering Spoilers !!
    As for the plot, I found it quite interesting , to put a mysterious man outside the train with a rather peculiar robe, it catches your attention and you want to know more, the story also explains why the Alpha team arrived at the mansion in search of of the Bravo and well throughout the game basically explains what and why things are happening, the zombies and the monsters that we encounter, we are shown that William Birkin and Albert Wesker are behind these things but soon it is revealed that the one who unleashed the infection was the founder of Umbrella, James Marcus, how the events of the story unfold, it seems to me that it was done well but neither expect the great story, it is simply a good plot, which he did perfectly It was connecting directly with the events of Resident Evil, seeing how Rebecca addresses the Spencer mansion.
    In conclusion Resident Evil Zero is a great game of the series, a great challenge and a title with good playability, graphics and good history although at times it becomes quite flat.

    I just finished Re 0 on normal difficulty without looking at walkthrough. It took me 9 hrs 20 mins to complete. I had played Re1 before and II just finished Re 0 on normal difficulty without looking at walkthrough. It took me 9 hrs 20 mins to complete. I had played Re1 before and I rated it 9/10. Despite the love of series, I decided to give Re 0 7/10. Gameplay is as great as Re 1. Shooting zombies and various creature still gives sense of sanctification. I never get bored doing that. Puzzle solving is also very fun. Although, in my opinion, it does not have any memorable puzzles as Re 1 has. Perhaps, because I had finished RE1 before, so I could handle Re 0 puzzle very well due to experiences. Graphic looks nice, no port issue even though the cut scenes are out-dated but it is expected.

    The bad parts, however, are the story and storage management.

    First, the story is very terrible. There are a lot of things that do not make sense. Many cut scenes feel out of place. RE 1 is much better in term of horror story; you are in the house fulled with zombies and you want to get out of this hellish place asap. I did not get this feeling in RE0. I felt like in RE0 I was exploring things here in the mansion. The relationship between characters feel unreal. The ending is too plain. Even I am not that into the RE story, the story in RE0 is just so bad to the point that I can't ignore and feel disappointed.

    Second, storage management is what I don't like in RE series because I don't feel fun to backtrack. I didn't give 10/10 for RE1 only because their inventory is too small but this RE 0 is even worse due to the fact that there is no storage for you here. While you can drop items on the floor, it does not compensate the magic box. You can use some room as a hub to put all things in there but the later of the game you have to move to other places and you can't carry everything with you. You are forced to ditch out some ammo and herbs you accumulated. There are also new enemies that come out of no where in the area that you already cleared. Those enemies make backtracking even harder. This is unfair. The game will become unforgiving if you drop some important item, then backtrack and find yourself have to fight through the horde of new enemies, waste even more necessary ammo. (But I have a lot ammo left when I cleared the game, so it might not be as bad as I said)

    Difficulty is also risen a lot from RE1. Enemy's positions are well placed enough to get to you if you don't move away. This game has easy mode but Re0 easy mode (from my research) is as equal as very easy mode in RE1. Zombies dies in2-4 shots. However, normal mode RE0 is harder than normal mode RE1. So RE0 only has "very easy", "normal" and "hard", which means difficulty scale is bad.

    In sum, RE0 is still good game. Nevertheless, I would recommend everyone to play RE1 first. If you like RE1, then RE0 is also a game you should play. However, don't expect too much about the story and prepare to get frustration from backtrack even more. If you don't like RE1, then don't bother this one.
