While it is not one of the most talked about Resident Evil games, Resident Evil 0 is still one of my favorites. The Resident Evil 0 / biohazard 0 HD REMASTER is one of the more underrated remasters that Capcom has done. While this was a Game Cube exclusive when it was first released. The HD remaster is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

The Game Review
Part of what got me excited when Resident Evil 0 was first released was the story. Resident Evil 0 HD REMASTER is actually a prequel to the first game. While it may have originally been released at a time when storytelling had a tendency to be a little “cheesy” the story is actually quite engrossing.
The game sees you playing as the rookie of the S.T.A.R.S team, Rebecca Chambers. She has been sent to investigate these strange murders and she ends up in a bad train crash. Here we meet our second playable character, Billy. Billy is a prisoner who has a pretty interesting back story and he is a character that I really like.
While other Resident Evil games have let you play as different characters. None do it in the same way that Resident Evil 0 REMASTER does. You control both characters at the same time, swapping between the two of them. This sounds like it would be a pain in the butt, however, I feel it works very well.
Many puzzles require you to switch between the two frequently and you can have Billy in a completely different area to Rebecca. You can leave items for other characters to get and in general, it adds a really fun and interesting edge to the game. While I love it, the swapping mechanic I feel could be something that some people have a hard time getting into.
The game is classic Resident Evil! This means that you have to conserve your ammo, solve puzzles and deal with tank controls. Actually, the controls have been changed a bit. You can use the old tank style controls if you like, but Capcom has added a new control scheme that is apparently there for players who are new or who never got into the tank controls.
The big addition to the Resident Evil 0 0 HD REMASTER is the visuals. This game looked good on the Game Cube, but this HD remaster is fantastic. I love the lighting effects and the whole game looks great. Resident Evil 0 actually has some pretty diverse locations and they really do look great in this newer version of the game.
One other thing that has been added to this version is a Wesker mode. This is a lot of fun and lets you play as Albert Wesker in his super powerful form. I am sure that longtime Resident Evil fans will get a real kick out of this and it is certainly something I really did enjoy.
No matter what you game on I do feel that Resident Evil 0 / biohazard 0 HD REMASTER is worth checking out. It has a good story and I think the character swapping makes it one of the more interesting of the old-style Resident Evil games. It is tough as nails, but the challenge is fair. One other thing to add is that you can quite often get this with the remaster of the original Resident Evil and that is the version you want to look for.
