Resident Evil 2

released on Jan 21, 1998

Resident Evil 2 is a sequel to the first Resident Evil title. Like the previous game in the series, Resident Evil 2 is a 3D action-adventure using three-dimensional polygon characters over two-dimensional pre-rendered backgrounds, with the action viewed through a variety of cinematic fixed camera angles in each room. Players can choose to play as one of two possible characters, each goes through the same initial scenario but with differences in the type of weaponry they find and the people they meet along the way.

Peak horror gaming. The police station lobby theme has been ingrained in my brain. The horror, atmosphere, story, characters and everything is just perfect. Really enjoyed both Leon and Claire's routes in this one. Loved seeing the different perspectives. PS1 Ada had me feeling different.

O ápice dos Resident Evil clássicos está aqui. Uma sequência que supera todos os aspectos do antecessor de 1996. Apenas Resident Evil 2.

great sequel new setting new characters but maintaining that great gameplay loop and exploration

Such an upgrade to the story in the original game, even to REmake, giving me a reason to care for the characters and continue to play. I only played Leon A, but even that was a tonne of fun to go through. The music in the game is also much better than before, being much more memorable and powerful to coincide with the story. If this game got the '02 remake treatment, it would honestly be perfect, and might even be better than RE4.
