Resident Evil HD
Resident Evil HD Remaster is the high-definition version of 2002’s Resident Evil, which in itself was a remake of the original 1996 Resident Evil. The new HD version has a vast slew of features and upgrades intended for both modern-day gamers and veteran fans returning to the franchise. The game features a resolution boost to 1080p, a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9 and support for 5.1 surround sound. The much-criticized controls of the original game have been replaced with a new control scheme, allowing players to move their character in the direction of the analog stick or direction key. Players can, however, choose to play with the original control scheme if you they wish, with the switch being possible in real-time. Apart from these basic enhancements, the game features considerably detailed graphics, non-static 3D models, post-processing effects such as bloom filters and high-resolution background environments, as well as animated 3D models.
Resident Evil is set in 1998: a special forces team is dispatched to investigate bizarre murders on the outskirts of Raccoon City. Attacked by bloodthirsty dogs, the team is forced to take cover in a nearby mansion, but they find their troubles have only increased there, and that that they must now struggle to stay alive, conserve resources and fight off zombies to survive their ordeal. Players can take on the role of either Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine, which each character having his or her pros and cons.
The original Resident Evil was a genre-defining work for the survival horror genre, and has players navigating and exploring an environment while avoiding, outsmarting and defeating monsters such as zombies, undead dogs and giant spiders. The game features adventure game elements, such as inventory item puzzles that can be put together to grant the player access to new areas. Players can also use firearms to take on the monsters, but have limited ammunition and are forced to instead evade or outsmart the enemies. Players can regain their health by using herbs, although if they are poisoned by monsters, they will require a serum, or special herbs. Additional care must be taken in defeating zombies, as the zombies that are not decapitated or burned will eventually revive, mutating into much faster and deadlier opponents. The game also features an automap to help navigate the mansion. One unique feature to the game is its save system: players must find ink ribbons and use them with typewriters. The supply of ink ribbons being rare, however, makes for limited opportunities to save.
