Product Description

Zombies, an old mansion, and limited ammo. What more could you want? Resident Evil: Director's Cut plunges you into the world of B-grade zombie flicks, and does a first-class job of it. From the cheesy dialogue and voice acting to the confusing camera angles, you'll jump and squirm through a series of mind-numbing puzzles and heart-pounding attacks. The trick is: conserve your ammo, and learn to run.

The game is interspersed with movie-style cut scenes that all too often annoy rather than elucidate. The gist of the story is this: you and your special forces teammates have come to investigate the disappearance of the last team, and you have no idea what you're getting into. You spend the rest of the game trying to find your way out of the mansion in which you're trapped. The bottom line: If you like zombie flicks, buy it, play it, love it. And the best part--try blowing the zombie dogs' heads off with the bazooka. --John Cocking


  • Scary sound, camera angles, horror-movie action
  • Sense of dread, dropping ammo count
  • Zombies
  • Horrible dialogue
  • Back-tracking for puzzles
  • The bazooka won't blow open a door

Best Playstation Game Overall!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Playstation's Finest Games December 28, 1999

"Resident Evil: Director's Cut" is great! Not another DOOM-like game where you blow everything to bits, this game is all about survival in an old mansion filled with zombies, mutant dogs, giant snakes, and other horrible mutations. The suspense and atmosphere will have you shaking in your boots, then you'll be scared to death when something goes crashing through a window just when you've calmed down. A must-have title. I even played "Resident Evil 2" first, and it's still a must-have! That's my two cents.

This game is only for mature players,yet...I can't get enough of it.It combines a horror flick with cheez-E dye-o-log wit a action packed 3D game with great graphics and puzzels almost impossible to solve without a guide (or plenty of ammo)! I've played RE2 and RE nemesis,But this game still remains the beast in my heart.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 Stars - This is where it all began July 20, 2004
Format:Video Game
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Resident Evil: Director's Cut (1997). The PSX re-release of the 1996 survival horror game.

Back when the PSX was first released, the system didn't have much in the way of standout games. Of course, there were a few noteworthy PSX launch games like Twisted Metal, Doom, and Tekken, but for the most part, the PSX didn't have anything outstanding yet. Thus, Resident Evil was made. Taking influences from the earlier survival horror series Alone In The Dark, Resident evil took all of its aspects to the next level and eventually became one of Capcom's most successful franchises to date, ranking just behind the Mega Man and Street Fighter games. In fact, the original RE game was probably the first PSX game to make the system worthwhile before other important games were released in the following years.

Most everyone who's played the games already knows the story, but for those who haven't, here's a brief synopsis: A strange murder occurrence just outside of Raccoon City has caused Police officials to be suspicious, so they sent two Special Tactics and Rescue Squad (STARS) teams to go investigate. You play as either Jill Valentine or Chris Redfield, both of them surviving STARS members. The teams end up getting stuck in the mountains, so they eventually find themselves inside a huge mansion, where the STARS members discover numerous creatures such as zombies, mutilated dogs, giant spiders, and other monsters. These were all created due to Umbrella Corporation's disastrous T-Virus. As the game goes along, more important discoveries are made.

Now let's talk about the game itself.

Of the three PSX RE games, this one easily has the worst graphics. We're talking first-generation PSX graphics here, if that's any indication.

4.0 out of 5 stars Resident Evil: Director's Cut review November 11, 2000
Format:Video Game
Resident Evil is one of those games that needs to be rated, not on the game itself, but what it did for the video gaming world. RE was the first video game to actually put the gamer into a real life horror movie and then say, "survive this!" So, RE, along with other games, became known as the "survival horror" games. While RE, on terms of gameplay, might not be the greatest game ever made, it's still fun. Of course though, that's not what the game focuses on anyway. This game focuses on trying to scare the dickens out of every gamer who picks it up, at least, the first time they play it. Scenes like where you head out of the dining room and into the long corridor. You look right; nothing but doors. You look left; a corner that you can't see around, so you head to the left and turn the corner and your first taste of a true horror game/movie starts. The cut scene reveals the back head of your first encounter with a zombie, one that happens to be munching on one of your comrades. As he turns around to look at you, you see that pale, ugly face of the undead that you'll see all throughout the game. After you dispose of the creature you finally realize just what you're in for. The second scene that had everyone talking is your first trip down the carpeted, "L" shaped hallway with all the windows. As you enter there aren't any zombies so you think, "Oh, good, no creatures to kill me..." or so you think. As you're making your way down the hall, your first encounter with a Cerberos (zombie dog) occurs. The glass breaks and you jump out of your seat as the dog heads toward you. Everyone out there might as well admit that the first time you ran into that dog you were frozen with fright just long enough for him to take a bite out of you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better to play RE1 before RE2 November 21, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought RE2 before RE1DC, and not suprisingly, RE1 was a bit disappointing. It is a great game and I enjoy playing it, but once one is accustomed to playing RE2, RE1 seems a little "lame". Kind of like driving a Lexus around for a while, then changing to a Corrolla. Still a nice car, but not quite the same.
Don't get me wrong, I HIGHLY recommend the game, but if you're just getting into the RE series, buy and play them in order.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best in it's time May 29, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
What can I say? I remember the first time I played this game, how much the atmosphere drew me in and almost made me forget it was a video game. I remember the first time I jumped because I was so focused on exploring and wasn't prepared for that first dog.
I originally owned this game on the now defunct Sega Saturn. I was thoroughly enjoying the game, and my Saturn died when I was about 3/4 of the way finished. That was about when the Saturn was seeing it's last days, so I didn't feel like dropping more money into another Saturn, and at that time, I just figured I'd get Resident Evil for the PC. Now that I have a PS2, I decided to get this for that system. I'm really glad I did.
Although the graphics are dated by today's standards, they are still sufficient for a great game experience, and all of that atmosphere makes up for the graphical limitations the game had when it was originally released.
The thing that I most like about this disc is that it has the original and director's cut both on one disc. I bought it for the original, but I'm looking forward to the slight changes in the director's cut when I finish that.
So, what it comes down to is this: If you like creepy games, and can find the enjoyment in slow exploration type games (I was a big multi-player Quake fan for a long time because of the non-stop action, but this was a nice change of pace), pick this up for sure. It's a classic, and will always be a fun game to play.
