A great package packed with modern-day Resident Evil nostalgia. The original horror elements in the franchise stand as tall today as they did back then, but some of both game’s mechanics may annoy newcomers.
Resident Evil Origins Collection is not really worth it. There are no extras and every game is already on sale for half the price of this collection. The inventory of Resident Evil Zero is so complex that it still makes the game feel like work. Just play Resident Evil HD Remaster and stick with that, please.
RE: Origins Collection is still the closest thing we have to a proper original Resident Evil remake but it is still an amazing title worthy of a near perfect score. If you are a survival horror fan and have somehow never picked this up stop reading right now and just go and buy this game. The only minor things that stop this game from getting a perfect score from me is that some of the pre-rendered artwork scenes have clearly just been put through some filters rather than being re-made which does cause visual inconsistencies and the menus have some rather horrible colour banding issues, the latter of these problems at least I would have though could be fixed for the ports to PC, Switch, XBOne and PS4, but nope. If you are craving a classic survival horror experience made with pre-rendered backdrops this is probably the last game that did it and masterfully done it was. There is still something you get from an artists high resolution static backdrop that you just can't accurately create and portray in a fully 3D environment and as the last game of a now dead game design concept you owe it to yourself to play the finest example of where art, imagination, and 3D combine seemlessly.
Very nice visuals, but tank controls, general area shooting, bad cameras, & poor ammo dispersement against updated & more difficult enemies, holds this one back, for me.
If this would've existed before the original RE4, the controls, at least, would've still made sense. If they do "quality of life" remakes/remasters of these,I'd buy it.
What is Capcom to do with the Resident Evil series? Should they revamp it, or keep going with their current continuity? Neither in fact they decided they’d rather re-release all the same games we’ve already played; oddly I’m okay with that. Hello everyone B-rod here to with some reasons on why the Resident Evil Origins collection is not a half bad of a buy. Now before I get into this any further I am not a huge Resident Evil fan. I honestly have only played about five of the bazillion games to have come out, and not all the way to the end might I add. If you happen to be a purest or think I missed something about either of these two games then you are not wrong. So let’s find out how wrong I am.
This collect for those who may have missed it is a forty dollar package that includes the HD version of Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0. I have played both of these back in the day so was curious if my skills have gotten better with age or atrophied. What I found out is I’ve gotten better, but have little patience for **** Let me dive into what I mean so I started with Resident Evil, and was moving right along until I picked up a shield key and was lost on what to do. For those who may not know the first Resident Evil is a **** with inventory, and it just so happens that this shield key took up my last slot. Now in a normal game (even older ones) if you fill up your inventory there is some way to drop the item. Not in good ole Resident Evil. No in this game it allowed me to get **** over in the FIRST **** 15 MINUTES. Not a huge problem if I didn’t wonder the mansion for over an hour looking for the one door that this key went to. So I restarted the game and figured out where I was going by using a walkthrough which royally pissed me off. Let us just say I didn’t stick with Resident Evil for very long.
Resident Evil 0 however was a blast. It was the good old school gameplay without the pain in the ass inventory clogging. Now it still has a limited inventory, but it at least lets you drop the **** you may not need at the moment. I made some good progress in this game much further than I did as a kid, and was glued to the screen. Unlike the first game with 0 I only had to use a walkthrough once to figure out what to do with the grapple gun. There are some issues with 0 that I need to bring up. Your AI partner will either waste their ammo shooting at everything that looks funny, or stand there and get their ass eaten alive. The other thing is present in both is the damned door load screen. Now I understand nostalgia reasons for having it, but who honestly misses that about Resident Evil? I never hear anyone think fondly of the **** door opening. On the PS4 it really is unacceptable, there is no way that game actually needs to load at all it should be open a door and in the next room.
Now I will gloss over the story for a couple of reasons. First, most have seen the story many times. Secondly the story in both is **** dumb. The first Resident Evil is you play as either Chris or Jill as part of the S.T.A.R.S. task force and are chased inside this mansion filled with zombies and obituary keys. Then find out it is all made by the Umbrella Corporation blah, blah, blah. Resident Evil 0 is a prequel where you play as Rebecca the rookie and Billy the convict, and you are on a train full of zombies that bring you back to that annoying Mansion, because you can’t have a whole game on a train apparently.
Overall if you dug the old Resident Evil games this is a no brainer, and you probably already own it. For those who are new rent, rent, rent. This is not for everyone the camera and controls are old school. You know about the **** off inventory. If you think games do too much hand holding now in days how about you give this a whorl and see if this is more up to your speed. In the end $40 for two games isn’t a bad deal. I give this a 3.5 out of 5.
Terrible, por un momento pensé que haría explotar la playstation 4, cualquier juego en versión play es bastante malo o quizás es la consola la que de por sí hace tanto ruido que parece que está a punto de explotar, no lo sé.
