I didn't even know there had been a remake of part 1 until 3 days ago, so I borrowed my friend's Wii and tried it out. I thought this game was incredible.
Visuals/Graphics --> beautiful. The gripe I have with the fixed camera angles is that it's hard to see what's really going on or about to happen. Sometimes, as in the real part 1, I'd be fighting an enemy while the screen kept popping back and forth b/w two views. Annoying. However, you can learn to deal with it. The big reason I like the fixed angles is the beauty. I've yet to feel that RE4 and RE5 have as much beauty as RE0 and this one. Also, as one reviewer said better, it does make the game scarier.
Sound --> terrific. I love the zombie sounds, as monotonous as they may be. I played this on my 7.1 system, and hearing that random thunder scared the heck out of me. You could kill a monster, stand there for a second, and then the thunder just goes off. Timing! It just sounded great! I also loved the sound of that stun gun destroying the zombies.
Gameplay/Moves --> great. The dagger and stun gun were awesome. Movement is a bit clumsy, but, it's like the others, really.
Overall, this game was a blast. To the updated graphics/sound to big-as* Neptune (that scared the heck out of me) to Tyrant (I hated them all, except this one), this game is worth the buy, and I'm considering buying a Wii just for this game.Read more ›
Using the "classic" format of the older RE games (pre-RE4 style), this is the definitive version. RE2 may have had more jump scares, but this game has much more suspense and of course superior graphics. Even today this game impresses with it's lushly detailed pre-rendered backgrounds and high-polygon character models. Chris & Jill never looked so good, and in fact I prefer how they look here compared to their new RE5 designs. This game is pure survival horror, so if you tire of the more action based game play of RE4/5 then get this game ASAP.
In terms of visuals and in game extras, it's exactly the same deal as with the GC game. While it would have been nice to get a wide screen mode, the game can be stretched to fit your screen by setting the Wii settings to 4:3 and fiddling with your HDTV options. The game doesn't look bad this way, but given the choice I prefer the 4:3 aspect. It would have been cool if Capcom had used the extra space from the borders to display the map/items or health meter during game play. This way the game would retain it's proper aspect but still take advantage of the extra space from the wide-screen TV.
Despite being on the bare bones side, this port does include one major visual improvement over the Gamecube version;http://www.amazon.com/review/edit-review 480p progressive scan mode. I admit this was the main reason why I picked up this port since I already own the GC version. In 480p, the game looks much sharper on my CRT HDTV. I also tried this mode through VGA on my PC monitor, and wow beautiful stuff.Read more ›
In the Wii remake, everything that made RE one of the greatest games of all time is still here. The thing that blew me away was the graphics. I own a PS3 as well, and while this game is obviously not as crisp, it's still beautiful. So much so that it's actually pretty intense at times. In my opinion, RE games are not action based zombies-can-shoot-things-at-you-because-they're-actually-monsters-not-zombies type of games. They're tight corridor, dim-lit, fixed camera games. Please don't get me wrong, I love RE4 and RE5, and can't wait for RE6, but those are separate games from the first three.
While this game is incredibly familiar, they have added some things to it. There's a little more outside exploration, as well as new puzzles. For example in the original (on PS1) there's a room with knight statues that you must push over grates in the floor before pushing the switch. This room is still in the Wii version, only with a slightly different puzzle and completely different item. I've only played about 4 hours of it so far, and just killed the snake. Like I said , it's a little different, but for the most part the same game. I love how in the dialogue they will sometimes say the same thing in the same tone of voice as the original, even though back then the voice acting was laughable.
The camera is fixed, and it's amazing.Read more ›
