Muito puzzle, é vai vem pra lá e pra cá, muito bom. E divertido ficar pensando no pra serve isso e aquilo.

This is remaster of the 2002 Nintendo Gamecube remake of the 1996 PlayStation original game. But in reality, all you need to know is that this is a genre-defining awesome survival horror game worth your money.

While this game may feel a bit archaic in terms of controls and use of fixed-camera angles, these features make this game unique and up the level of tension all while adding to the overall eerie atmosphere courtesy of the beautiful pre-rendered backgrounds. The fact that this game still looks great after all these years is a testament on how well the game was remade. Replay value is high since you can play the game with two characters with slight differences in their stories and progression, as well as a number of unlockables and challenging achievements.

Do note that this Steam version has some flaws. I noticed subtitles are usually not synched with the speed of the voice acting and that the "second disc" content (laboratory final area) has severe audio lag in the cutscenes. Maybe these problems were unique to my rig but thought they needed to be mentioned.

Despite these issues this game still retains a masterpiece label in my book and it's a must have for any survival horror fan out there.

Um dos meus jogos favoritos, conseguiu superar o original em todos os sentidos, mantendo toda a essência do jogo, o melhor exemplo do remake perfeito, jogo lindo para 2002, jogabilidade muito mais flexível que o original. Um jogo desafiador na medida certa, usando o sistema da ink ribbon, onde você precisa achar uma para salvar o jogo, te deixa sempre na dúvida, será que salvo agora, ou é melhor guardar para depois? Mesma coisa com as munições, sempre atire apenas quando necessário, é um jogo sobre zumbis, não sobre matar zumbis, essa é a última opção.
Um jogo tenso, assustador, com uma ótima atmosfera, te deixando constantemente com medo do que está por vir, ainda mais com adição de certo fator que acontece quando um zumbi morre, que não irei revelar para não estragar a surpresa, mas é algo que sempre te pega de surpresa para quem estava acostumado com o jogo original. Realmente acho que não é um jogo para todo mundo, pode ser difícil se acostumar com os controles tank hoje em dia, mas peço para que tentem, experimentem essa obra de arte, não vão se arrepender.

I still need to play more of the series but this is my favorite one so far.
