Okay, so, I decided I had to play Resident Evil 2 again. I guess it was when I was midway through watching 'night of the creeps' that I came to this conclusion. Well, my playstation is only a memory now, drifting somewhere out in the world, so I decided to turn to the world of emulation. With a bit of work, I've gotten it working, and I'm going to play Resident Evil 2.
But I haven't actually started yet. I think I'm going to play as Claire, since the other time I played RE 2 I played as Leon. I got to the end of the game, too, but I had six handgun bullets and a knife. Suffice it to say, I didn't win.
The game is super-sweet though. RE 2 was the first game in the series I played. I missed RE 1, but I did play the game cube revision. Because it was the first, I'll always have special affection for RE 2. Something about a zombie infested police station that is a nice spin on the zombie infested theme. Sort of like how Dawn of the Dead takes place in a shopping mall. Actually, come to think of it, Dawn of the Dead might be my favorite Zombie movie. Either one, take your pick.
In terms of it being a sequel, I'm not sure that RE2 really upgrades the game play in any significant way. But in this case I don't really mind, again, because it was the first one I played. Also, the gameplay of Resident Evil was so unprecedented, I was thrilled to have more than one. It wasn't until RE3 that i started to think things were waning a bit. Really those first three games are like clones of one another. Awesome, terrifying clones.
I'll spare everyone and not talk about RE4 and beyond. Even if it was the triumphant return of Leon. Alright, well, this is sort of a non-post, but I'm excited to play Resident Evil 2! Woot!
