Raccoon City is under attack. A mysterious outbreak has transformed the population into ravenous zombies. The story begins a week into the outbreak, most of the police are already dead, and supplies are few and far between. Play as rookie police officer Leon Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield as they try to survive the night.
Each character has their own gameplay and storyline that unfolds as you explore the game. The zombies are relentless, clever, and never as dead as they seem. The majority of the game takes place in the Raccoon City police department and despite the relatively small map; it never feels repetitive or cramped.
Like many, I'm suffering from zombie fatigue, but this game reignited my fascination with the undead. Originally released in 1998 for PlayStation, Resident Evil 2 is a staple in survival-horror video games. Now remade, it is even better than before. The graphics elevate the suspense and the updated mechanics allow for more control and realism. The puzzles are as tricky as ever and just as satisfying to solve as the first time around. Unfortunately, it still takes a ridiculous amount of ammo to take down zombies, so make sure to use it wisely! Resident Evil 2 is available for checkout for PS4 and Xbox One.
