Terror Tuesday!

Now with 50% more corny lines

 Are you ready for one of the best zambie games ever?


Didn't think so


Resident Evil gets credit for being one of the best games in the Survival-Horror genre. These focused more on evading enemies you encounter, being vulnerable to nearly everything, and puzzles than running around and killing every single monster you see.

The game's plot is that you're part of a rescue squad sent to find out what happened to the first team sent in to discover why people are disappearing in the nearby mountains. Of course, shit hits the fan in record time in the form of hordes of zembie dogs attacking, and your chickenshit helicopter pilot gets scared and leaves you for dead in the woods near a big spooky mansion. Guess where you get to spend the night!

Looks legit

You make it to the mansion, and you get split up from the rest of your group within the first five minutes. Now you get to investigate the spooky house on the spooky mountain.

It's a survival horror so the gameplay can turn ruin the game for you if it's not your thing. It has the notorious tank controls that can be an absolute pain in the ass when trying to run away from monsters. The camera will also kill you a couple times. Running away from a zumbie? Time for a CAMERA TRANSITION! Now you're running at the zimbie! It's near impossible to kill every single monster encountered unless you are a god of conserving ammo, but you can thankfully avoid fighting nearly everything. The puzzles are neat, but almost all of them are around first grader level difficulty.

The graphics and the soundtrack are pretty good. Nothing amazing, but definitely not bad. The spooky, ambient music can help immerse you.


Now why is this ambient horror game on a manly game blog?

Watch this ACTION INTRO



The game also is credited with some of the most QUALITY voice acting in gaming.

The bosses in the game and RE series in general have one of my favorite video game cliches of all time.
PLEASE SHOOT MY BIG GLOWING  OBVIOUS WEAKPOINT

There was a Gamecube remake a couple years back that has a great Wii port now, and the director's cut of the original PS1 version is also on the PSN now if you want to try it on your PS3.

If you'd love a corny zombie game, I can't recommend this game any higher.
