| Best remake of one of the best games in the series.
4.5 out of 5 stars.

Resident Evil remake delivers a faithful adaptations of the original game. I played this on the GameCube and loved every minute of it. There are some new additions like new areas to explore in the mansion. Every enemy like zombies. Undead dogs. Hunters. Chimera. And the tyrant are all great. There is a new thing if you don't burn the dead bodies after you killed a zombie. It will rise again in another time and the zombie will be a lot of faster. Which was scary and intense. The controls are great. The graphics are amazing. I loved every detail of it. One issue I did have with the game is the music score. It was very quiet and the music score was set to a low volume or kept to the shadows with this game. I loved the original music score that was in the old game. And really missed it in this remake.
