Product Description

Product Description

Resident Evil 2 for Sony Playstation. One of Capcoms Best Games Ever.

Raccoon City has been overrun by the living dead, and you are one of only a dwindling handful of survivors. You must escape the doomed city or become part of a ghastly new food chain: one with you at the bottom.

You play as either Leon Kennedy, a rookie cop who's having a really bad first day on the job, or Claire Redfield, sister of one of the stars of the original Resident Evil. Leon and Claire's meeting is depicted in a visually stunning, B-movie cutscene. They're quickly separated, but occasionally meet up throughout the game.

Right after the gruesome intro, you're dumped into the thick of things and have to dash through the devastated city streets, fleeing from one horde of zombies after another. As you make your way to a supposed refuge--the city police station--you find evidence that the citizenry fought bravely against the undead menace--and lost. Smashed barricades, abandoned police cars, boarded-up stores, dismembered bodies, and hundreds of expended bullet shell casings are all-too-common sights. Once you reach the station, you discover the remains of a siege. The defenders' desperate final hours are recorded in a fragmented journal. Its pages detail a possible escape route through an underground passage. Did the cops make it out? The alarming number of zombies wearing tattered police uniforms may be a clue.

Resident Evil 2 keeps the terrific puzzles and action of the original while vastly improving cinematic qualities such as dialogue, camera angles, cutscenes, atmosphere, and location design. An instant survival horror classic, Resident Evil 2 has it all. --John Cocking

5.0 out of 5 stars the best in the series; flat out awesome January 2, 2002
By A Customer
STORYLINE: Resident evil 2 places you into the boots of Leon Kennedy or Claire Redfield (your choice), who after arriving into Raccoon City realize that its infested with man eating zombies, giant spiders, and other things you can't even imagine. Unfortunately, simply driving out of the town in a car will not cut it, so you'll have to guide 'em through such places as research facilities and police stations to find an alternate escape. Along the way you'll discover the story behind all the chaos and come across many plot twists, and you'll meet some nice, and others bizzare, characters along the way.
PROS: This games replay value is off the charts. There are so many hidden features (two hidden characters, and an alternate scenario for the two main characters) that you won't want to drop this game for a very long time. The action and suspense levels are also mind blowing, as you tackle down hordes of the zombies and much worse enemies with pistols, grenade launchers, and magnums. Graphics, control, and sound all hit the bullseye with this game.
CONS: Voice acting is absolutely horrible. Each characters voice is monotone and has no feeling behind it. Though it hurts the game, its not so effective that you hate the game; its only a minor, minor problem.
OVERALL: a must have game if you are a Playstation owner. The storyline and gameplay makes Resident Evil 2 one of the best PSone games to own.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is by far my Favorite Game!! November 18, 2000
By A Customer
If you are thinking of buying this game, do not hesitate... I have played this game all the way through twice, and I am about ready for another go at it. When my husband first bought it, I thought, "Oh great, just another shoot 'em up game." Then I started watching him play, and I got so into it that I couldn't wait for it to be my turn. The replay value is great, and I guarantee that this game will not let you down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly Addicting Horror Game December 7, 1999
By A Customer
Is it a movie or a video game? Try both and they suceed fairly well. So well, that it will keep you in front of the TV screen for hours on end, trying to reach the end. Breaks will be brief, only as long as it takes the paramedics to restart your heart after a particularly terrifying scene.
The opening computer generated opening is well done and tense, creating an atmosphere of horror as the dead literally rise up to attack you. Hollywood should take note. From there music, camera angles, and surprise manipulate the player as do cinematic cut scenes that allow you to know the character you play and care what occurs to them.
With only a thin sheen of realism (would there really be such strange puzzles?) the game involves the players in a storyline that is told through his or her actions, cut scenes, and printed information. The pacing is tense with surprises all abound right up to the ending.
What makes this game work so well is its attempt at depth. Not only can you play as two different characters with somewhat different storylines, beating these games open up alternative versions or "B" games. These B games are even better as you are stalked by a mysterious and indestructible Mr. X. Never knowing when he may appear allows you to replay the game again (with some differences) and not get bored.
All told, the game is highly satisfying. Though there are minor quibbles with inventory (a discard command to set down an item would work SO well) and a too difficult final battle in the B game, they do not detract from the game. Told as a movie, with moving scenes, it sets a new standard for gaming excellence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two thumbs WAY UP for Resident Evil 2! June 15, 2001
Hi, everybody! I am just going to talk and say that Resident Evil 2 is one of the best games out there, and in my opinion, it's even better that Nemesis! I guess it is because of the gameplay, and how there are two disks total in the set! And it is also so cool how you can also just pop in the 1st or 2nd disk and can play with either Leon or Claire in the very beginning! And with this copy, the Dual Shock edition, there is an Arrange mode, where you can start off with 3 HUGE weapons with unlimited ammo! They even start you off with a rocket launcher! How cool is that? It is just so fun to see the zombie's body parts blow up all over the place! To me, the best handgun is the Magnum, especially in the end, when you can get the added part to it to make it even stronger! It's cool, because when you shoot Zombies, it automatically aims for thier heads!
The main boss in this game is William, who is a man who made the G-Virus. These people from Umbrella tried to take itfrom him and when he moved, they shot at him! Then when he was on the ground, they took the sample and left. He then took the G-Virus and drank it! The people from Umbrella then get slaughtered to death by the mutated William! And now, he's after Leon and Claire! It's up to you to save Racoon City and the survivors (if there are any)! Destroy the zombies and William and you will be joyful about finishing this wonderful game, wanting to play it over and over again! Trust me, it is definately worth buying! No matter what the price!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Screams Go On December 29, 1999
By A Customer
OK. It may lack overall spookiness,and the city doesn't seem as maze-like as the mansion in the first one, but man, it still rocks. Graphics have been pumped up, and the background scenes are simply superb. The FMV is amazing too. The new weapons and characters are also great. Thankfully, they improved the voice acting, and the characters conversations are more beliveable. The zombies are still blood-chilling, and they look different. Some are cops, S.T.A.R.S. troops, and civilians(well, they were, anyway). The best part is the way you have to beat the game using one character, save it, then use that saved file for the other character to get the whole story. Nifty! Anyway, if you liked R.E., buy this. If the first 10 seconds of the intro film doesn't grab you, maybe you are a zombie yourself.
