    Once you get used to the awkward keyboard controls, you've still got the same good old Resident Evil.

    At first, everyone knows that Resident Evil is best on the Playstation. But, some of us gamers didn't have a playstation (like me) at that time, so our only option of playing Resident Evil was on the PC. Now, I'm going t... Read Full Review

    Best in the series.

    Sure, the PC port was a little screwed, but the controls are easy to get used to. You can also use a Joystick if you like. And if you say this is a poor port to PC, you haven't seen Resident Evil 4 I thought the co... Read Full Review
