Well after reading the review I rushed to GameStop and bought my copy. I thought well it's probably gonna be real good, but how great can an action/horror game be, I played them all. Well after getting home, popping the first little disc in my GC and turning on my 34" TV and watching the intro movie and playing the first 20 minutes. All I can say is WOW!!! Why the heck can't more game companies make more games like this?! Where shall I begin. The intro movie looks, feels and sounds like your classic Resident Evil, which is simply scary. But then the fun part begins. You enter a small, melancholy and evil looking village somewhere in Spain and that's when the new RE begins. The boring zombies are no more. What you encounter is a deranged man who swings at you with an axe inside his own home. He's completely human, no doubt about it. You check out his closet and find a dozen human skulls. This part just makes this game so much better, so much more realistic and terrifying then the previous REs. The only thing I didn't like at first is that the game is played entirely in wide-screen mode. I later understood that this is done on purpose. It actually enhances the gameplay infinetly and makes the game look like a haunting horror movie rather then a video game. The control are smooth and super responsive, which I cannot say about previous RE games and the camera angle is finally that of a regular FPS (well not exactly). Well that's all I have to say for now, I want to play. Get this game now and get a GC if you don't have one, it's WELL worth it. I have evey other game system on the market (ps2, xbox, pc, gba, pc) and yes GC gets used the least, but I treasure it for the dozen classic and breathtaking games that it has. It's well worth the 99$. This game is the new platform seller!

I'll admit, it's difficult supporting Nintendo. The lack of games is certainly the main issues, which explains why Nintendo is #3 behind XBOX and Playstation 2. It's reason enough to hold onto the little Cube a little lo... Read Full Review
