Playing the Resident Evil 2 Remake is like watching a marathon of the best horror movies. The greats are all here; disgusting Cronenberg monstrosities fused with humans and writhing slimy tumors, the dark cinematography of Craven, the stark colors of Hitchcock's noir style, the ominous mind-warping slaughterhouse fear from a Hooper flick, the raw paranoia of a Carpenter film, and the classic overwhelming shambling presence of Romero's immortal Night of the Living Dead.
This game shoves you in your own cinematic slice of hell and you're directing the scenes, and it's so immersive you often forget you're actually playing. With this game, Capcom prove to be the undisputed kings of terror and have found a way to perfectly encapsulate the thrilling magic of everything scary.
The developers have clearly spent an incredible amount of time immaculately crafting the game's environments, visuals, lighting, and sound--everything is oozing with atmosphere and blends perfectly into the overall experience. This is Capcom's macabre masterpiece that's painted in blood, psychological terror, and all the other dark hues and colors that all interactive horror media strives to achieve.
Not only does the RE2 Remake harken back to the golden age of PlayStation gaming, but it revitalizes it in a way that's easily accessible and consumable, and redolent with fear-inducing action to keep us up at night.
If you absolutely love spooky movies and enjoy putting yourself in mental duress for entertainment, then you absolutely can't miss this one. Play it with the lights out, with headphones on, and try not to warp your mind too much.
Resident Evil 2 Remake ignites that primal excitement within all of us and feeds that internal hunger for razors-edge chaos. Raw silvery fear cuts through the fog of the game's abandon-all-hope malaise like a scalpel, letting a kind of strange corruption bleed through. It's here where we revel in the terror and weirdness Capcom has summoned, and here where the true curse and magic of all horror lies.
