Resident Evil HD Remaster
Top Critic Average
Summary: Resident Evil HD Remaster is a faithful HD port of the original game. This does mean all the flaws of the first Resident Evil, such as awkward controls, do remain but so does its charms such as its genuine sense of fear and quirky dialogue.

Nevertheless, Spencer Mansion ultimately fails as a locale because of its implausibility. It is a place that has been designed in service to the designer's puzzles, rather than vice-versa and, for this reason, feels fake and contrived, characteristics that undermine the horror rather than heighten it. As a product of a unique moment in the medium's technological evolution, Resident Evil HD is a fascinating place to revisit. But for many contemporary visitors it will be an unpleasant stay, not because the game's inhabitants are unusually hostile, or because its idiosyncrasies are unfashionable, but because its formative designs have simply been bettered.
