Resident Evil HD Remaster is, as you’d expect, a remaster of the 2003 Nintendo Gamecube remake of the original Resident Evil game. If you’ve only ever played the Playstation original – you’re in for a treat. This is a remake in almost every aspect. Visuals have been completely redone. Several side character arcs have been added. New enemies appear here and there. There’s even brand new areas to explore in the surrounding areas of the mansion. It is, more or less, a completely different game.
What hasn’t changed, however, is the story. And since it was originally penned between 1995 and 1996, it’s a bit of a typical and predictable story. A series of bizarre murders have taken place in the outskirts of Racoon City, in the Arklay Mountains. Victims appeared to be eaten.
Noting a problem, the Raccoon City Police Department sends the Special Tactics and Rescue Service (S.T.A.R.S.) to investigate the murders. Bravo Team are sent first, but after contact is lost, Alpha Team (lead by none other than series stalwart Albert Wesker and joined by Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield) are sent to investigate their disappearance.
