What is Resident Evil 0 about?
The story of Resident Evil 0 takes players back to 1998. Reports have been mounting about unusual murders on the outskirts of Raccoon City. The city's Special Forces division, S.T.A.R.S., sends their Bravo Team - including rookie cop member Rebecca Chambers - to investigate. On route, the team's helicopter suffers engine trouble and is forced to make a crash landing, where they find an overturned prisoner transport vehicle. Splitting up to search the area, Rebecca discovers the Ecliptic Express, a train stopped dead on the tracks. Inside, she meets death row convict and ex-Navy lieutenant Billy Coen. Throughout the game, players will take control of both Rebecca and Billy, at times switching between both characters in order to proceed. Learning the advantages of each character is the key to solving puzzles and surviving the nightmares that lie ahead.
The game is a remake of the GameCube version released in 2003. You can definitely tell the game's age, because the game mechanics are still the same. The second thing that hasn't been changed, is the fact that you can't hardly carry things with you! And that there are no boxes where you can store things, like the first part. One simply leaves things somewhere and must run to them when needed. This is annoying and time-consuming!
