Resident Evil HD Remaster Reviews
The game that launched the 'Resident Evil' series' HD overhaul brings it up to date for newcomers, but doesn't change enough to make it worthwhile for veterans.
Newcomers should be aware that some of Resident Evil's old-fashioned style can frustrate, but it is still a creepy, involving slice of bona fide video game history.
Resident Evil for Nintendo Switch is a great adaptation of the cult game. This is one of the best projects in the series, which you should definitely play, especially if you've already completed an amazing Resident Evil 2 Remake.

If you can get past the clumsy controls, you'll see why the Resident Evil series is held in such high esteem and how it kickstarted the survival horror genre.
Buy this game, especially if you are like me and have a hard time enjoying the series outside of Resident Evil 4. It might even make a Resident Evil fan out of you too.
For those who are fans of the Resident Evil series like me, who have not played the original in a long time, Resident Evil HD Remaster is great fan-service, and for the price how could you say no? So what are you waiting for? Grab your gun, get your green herbs ready, and go forth into Raccoon City, where the nightmare all started!
Still considered one of the best (if not THE best in the series) REmake still holds up today as a trendsetter in the gaming world. Every other title wanted to be it, but none ever quite nailed the formula the way this Gamecube remake does. Definitely recommended for fans of the genre, as this is the pinnacle of what Shinji Mikami created all those years ago.
Resident Evil has small issues here and there, and the silly writing and survival gameplay have never been for everybody, but these negatives don't change the fact that this is a fantastic release. The REmake is as enjoyable as ever, enhanced by small improvements that make it that much more playable, and the whole experience hints at just how great a new "classic" Resident Evil could be with today's technology behind it.
An absolutely gorgeous update to a timeless classic, Resident Evil is every bit as thrilling and enjoyable now as it was when it was originally released in 1996. The controls still feel rough at times, even with the updated options, but the atmosphere and experience is second to none when it comes to the survival horror genre.
Resident Evil HD is a stunning recreation of one of survival horror's all-time classics. While some aspects may appear outdated, Capcom's zombie killer is one of the toughest, most rewarding adventure games you'll play, and the HD makeover ensures it looks better than ever.
It's a straight HD remaster of the 2002 remake, but as long as you can live with Resident Evil's numerous and well-known idiosyncracies you'll be surprised at how well it still plays. If you're a major Resi fan it's questionable whether there's enough new here to take another dip - your Resident Evil memories are probably scarier than the real deal. First timers and long-absent friends, however, should open the creaky mansion door and step nervously inside. This horror pioneer is still one of the greats.
Context is essential, then, but the Switch port shows this classic at its absolute best and there’s arguably no better way to sample the original Resident Evil formula in 2019, provided you’ve got the stomach for it.

Resident Evil is a fine horror game that stands the test of time, and that game is still here. However Capcom's job updating it for 2015 is lazy and insulting to fans.
Resident Evil is an excellent, successful resurrection of a timeless classic. While there may not be enough content to satiate those familiar with the 13-year-old remake, things still felt fresh, in a rotted, unsettling sort of way.
Resident Evil HD Remaster often disappoints when it comes to the HD part, but the rest of the game is so damn good, newcomers and old-timers alike should check it out.
With all its technical upgrades and incredible attention to every little bloody detail, the mansion looks magnificent and the game fulfills its purpose in reminding fans why we fell in love with this series in the first place. Sure, I do miss the campy live-action intro (who could forget the suave, Val Kilmer look-alike Albert Wesker slicking back his hair?) from the original PS1 version.
This HD remastered Resident Evil preserves the original experience of the game for fans who have their rose-tinted glasses polished and ready to go. From a next-gen standpoint, there are just too many things that get in the way of an enjoyable and immersive gaming experience.
I would definitely recommend Resident Evil HD Remaster for anyone who needs their classic Resident Evil fix on PC or next-gen consoles.
