Alternate Versions

A very near completed version for Nintendo 64 exists. It was never released and there is a possibility it was dismantled by Capcom shortly after the work began on the Nintendo Gamecube version of the game. The Nintendo 64 version is EXACTLY the same, but with very low quality graphics due to Nintendo 64's small memory and lack of polygons. See more »

Better than the first Resident Evil for Gamecube
29 December 2002 | by duffjaSee all my reviews

This is the second RE game that I have played (the first one being the REmake), and I found this one to be better than it in every way, except story, where they are equal. One of the things that I like is that there are many more cut-scenes in this game and they look very well done, and do not stutter like the ones in the REmake. The in-game graphics are good to, and they add to the creepiness of the game, along with the eerie music and scary new monsters. It is much more fun to play since you control two characters at once and I like the fact that you can drop items in this game, since I found the item boxes in the REmake very frustrating since I kept having to run back to them in order to dump all my useless items. Although the game is slightly shorter than the REmake, it is still more fun to play and it has a lot of replay value. I was a bit disappointed with the extras though, since the only good things that you can unlock that are cool are the new weapons. This game also has more weapons and monsters than the REmake, but not as many extras. Overall, it is better than the REmake, and a very good game, and I can't wait for Resident Evil 4.
