|Resident Evil 2 was my first N64 game I owned when I bought a 64. Though I played this game before on the PSX, I was a bit shocked it released on the N64. Those who never played it need to.
Graphics are great... back then, but now they show their age. Don't get me wrong this is STILL a solid game so don't judge a book by its cover. Some impressive and interesting cut-scenes really put this game in perspective.
Sound is okay, but the PSX version beats this by far. The sounds in the N64 version of the game seem to sound "messy" in some places.
If you played any classic Resident Evil game you know what to expect, but if you are new to Resident Evil then you might get a bit frustrated by the tank controls. Once you get used to them it actually ain't that bad.
Though it's a straight port of a great PSX game it matches up well. The only thing I have a problem with is the sound filter and chippy cut-scenes.
I like the Resident Evil series and this title IS one of my favs. I favor the PSX version of the game, but the 64 version closely resembles it. If you like survival horror games this is the one to play by far. Period.
