Genre: Survival Horror,Remake
For Christmas my brother gifted me Resident Evil 2 for PC on Steam. I absolutely loved playing this game minus a few things I didn’t like about it.
I am including the plot to this game based on wikipedia for you before I get into my thoughts.
The game is set in Raccoon City in September 1998, two months after the events of Resident Evil. Most of the citizens have been turned into mindless creatures, referred to by survivors as zombies, due to an outbreak of a viral bioweapon known as the T-Virus, manufactured by Umbrella Corporation. The game begins at a gas station outside of the city, where rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy meets college student Claire Redfield, who is looking for her brother Chris.
After being separated following a car accident, Leon and Claire agree to meet up at the city’s police department. The building is infested by zombies, and other monsters, including the “Tyrant”, who is dispatched to hunt down and kill any survivors. The creatures and various obstacles prevent Leon and Claire from actually reuniting as they are forced to find a way to escape the city.
I love all the scares and the jumps that came along with this game even thought some of them could really scare me shitless lol. This was my first time playing RE2 I have played RE4 countless times and have beat it countless times but this time around i just finished Leon’s Main Story Line and Claire’s 2nd Story Line all in about 20 hours. I still need to play through Leon’s Second Story and Claire’s Main Story.
Over all during the first time through as Leon I noticed that the ammo is very scarce and that his knife does have a durability and does break unlike in RE4, The bosses can be really bad if your new to gaming or have even played games for a few years. I didn’t start gaming til about 5 years ago or so and this game i can say really challenged me since my aim sucks lol.
Anyway back to the review, The Tyrant will follow you around the entire police station which scared me the most because he will just come out of no where. The Lickers can be mean as hell as well and those also did the same to me as the Tyrant did i got jump scared by those damn things like no tomorrow I even left about 3 of them in the police station as I continued the story line.
About half way through though I did have to get out a walkthrough because my ass got lost. I can say if you are not an experienced gamer and you don’t wanna die a lot I would suggest you not play the game but I am not an experienced gamer and i died a lot and you will run out of ammo a lot if you can’t aim worth a shit.
In my perspective they could have added a bit more ammo to the game and which gun powders make which ammo and took off the durability of the knife I hated it every time my knife broke. I didn’t have another one in my inventory or my stash thing.
As for Claire’s Second Story. I can say they give her an over abundance in ammo that I noticed more than Leon’s Main Story. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to change her Flame ammo to her Acid ammo rounds til almost being at the last boss.
Claire get’s a lot of different gun’s in her Second Story as for her Main Story I honestly don’t know yet because like a ditz I did her Second Story before her Main lol.
But in perspective I can say I loved this game and am so happy that my brother bought this for me as a christmas gift.
