Excerpt: The Resident Evil series is a long running series which goes back to the PSX days. Today the Resident Evil series is a phenomenon like none other in the "survivor horror" genre. The first Resident Evil series has finally made its way to a Nintendo system (actually RE 2 was on the N64) and comes as no surprise to me, since it was originally planned for the Nintendo 64.
Summary: Something terrible is seeping into the once pristine mountain air. The residents of Raccoon City go about their lives unaware of the dark fate that surrounds them. It’s only the beginning! Sent in to investigate a series of grisly murders in the area, S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team scrambles into action. On the way to the scene, Bravo’s helicopter crashes. Although everyone survives, what they discover next is a gruesome site.

Slick graphics and a brand new two-character simultaneous play mode set Zero apart from its predecessors.
Pros: ups: Good puzzles; interesting storyline; very creepy; great musical score.
Cons: downs: Still stuck with old control scheme; fixed camera angles still cause a problem.
Summary: Blood, guts, zombie brains and more... Who could honestly resist?
Pros: Beautiful art direction and pre-rendered visuals animate stunningly, Characters are extremely detailed, Item System works well and revamps core gameplay., Lots of references to previous games for fans to pick up on, Using two characters to explore areas co-operatively is fun, and it’s nice to finally have someone watching your back., Zombies!
Cons: He’s wearing a dress, Capcom. WHY?, Since Rebecca has so little strength, you’ll designate her as “pack mule”, Why do we have to suffer with this control scheme still?
Excerpt: Dramatic camera angles, grotesque zombie dogs, menacing mutants, and horrifying controls--for better or worse, all the things that Capcom's Resident Evil series is known for are present in Resident Evil 0. Set just before events that took place in the original game, Resident Evil 0 features highly detailed characters and environments similar to those seen in this year's Resident Evil for the GameCube, along with a soundtrack that will keep you in constant fear of...
