    This re-imagining of Resident Evil 2 is everything a Resident Evil fan could ask for, taking the series back to its roots without feeling old. It is single-player survival horror at its finest, and quite possibly the best Resident Evil game ever made.

    Perfectly captures the essence of the original while offering something completely new.

    The new Resident Evil 2 is everything the original was; tense, scary, brilliant and filled with secrets and additional content to find. But it's also a game perfectly suited to 2019, not just because of its cutting edge look and sound; but because we don't get games like this anymore, and that's a shame.

    Resident Evil 2 comes in 2019 in all the glory you'd expect from such a mammoth franchise, bringing players new and old the same magnificent story but with spine-chilling new graphics and mechanics that will make even those of you with nerves of steel to experience the occasional lift-off from your gaming couch. Nothing negative can be said regarding the game, except for the difficulty and sense of dread and helplessness you get sometimes, but then again, that is the recipe for a good survival-horror title!

    After reinventing the series with Resident Evil VII, returning to Raccoon City to relive past glories proves more than welcome. Calling Resident Evil 2 a remake, however, almost seems reductive. It looks and plays like a brand-new game, prodding the nostalgia glands while delivering something that feels fresh. Resident Evil 2 is expertly executed and bloody sublime.

    If one were to judge a horror title solely on its ability to suspend its audience in a state of dreadful tension, Resident Evil 2 would be quite accomplished.

Basically 20 years waiting for this remake and let me tell you; it delivers on all fronts. From graphics to sound to the story and to the game mechanics. The enemies are absolutely terrifying and for most part offer a fair challenge. Obviously the game is not without some faults here and there but nothing noteworthy enough to ruin the experience. I love it and it gets a full 10 and I urge anyone that hasn't played it yet to give it a try. I fully trust Capcom again after this masterpiece and I can't wait for Resident Evil 3 Remake!!! Expand

Also the best remake I’ve ever played. I never got to experience the original, but I don’t see how I could go back to it after this masterpiece. I love almost everything about this game, the multiple campaigns are stellar, the atmosphere is genuinely scary, the graphics are astounding, everytime I think about this game I get butterflies in my tummy. There’s a couple things that held it back from a 10/10, I didn’t really like the Ada or Sherri sections. In such a short game, I don’t think they were really needed to break the pace up. It was basically just you failing until you got it perfectly right, not fun. And that stupid fluid puzzle in the NEST can go to hell. Other than that, this game is so close to perfection. It’s scary & addictive. PLAY IT. Expand
