You control two characters in the game Rebecca Chambers, she is part of S.T.A.R.S. a Special Force Unit and Billy Coen, who is an ex-Navy lieutenant and military prisoner charged with killing civilians in war. The story is set in 1998, Rebecca is sent with Special Force Unit to investigate murder reports in Raccoon City but the helicopter undergo an engine problem and forced to crash land somewhere close to prisoner vehicle. The Team split up and search the area, Rebecca found a train full of death and Billy Coen. In the entire game you two have to work together to like switching between Rebecca and Billy to solve different puzzles/riddles in order to survive and escape this madness.
Like other Resident Evil Games you have to face limited inventory space, you can just carry handful things to survive here. There are limited slots to carry your gun, ammunition, health items and other key items to solve different puzzles. Most of the time you have to make choices that what is more important for you to carry in your bag and what you should leave.
But this limited inventory slots can be coped as you have two characters to control and you can use this to your advantage. You can switch between characters easily with just push of a button. You can leave items anywhere you want and pick these items later. But with low ammo, health and resources the game really puts you in a serious situation of life and death and every choice you make will definitely make a difference.
The game has pretty decent sense of fear, anxiety and tension, you will have to pay a lot more attention to your environment which is really beautifully rendered and has has good fixed camera angles. Sometime these fix camera angle make things difficult such as you can not judge the depth of a scene or movement of characters is difficult when moving from one scene to another.
It’s really good to put you on a train at the start of the game where the story and the environment is linear and has less puzzles and zombies. You can easily get a grip of controls your movements and sense of exploring your environment. After that things seat up and game catches speed with new enemies, puzzles and low resources.
Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster also has a Wesker Mode, where billy is replaced by Wesker but only for appearances because you still hear Billy’s voice from Wesker’s mouth which is kind of funny. Wesker Mode unlocks after you complete the standard story mode. Wesker has pretty awesome super powers such as fast sprint where he can knock over anything in his way and unlimited energy bursts that will over power your enemies instantly. In this mode there are no rules, as you can easily over power zombies and monsters and have fun after completing tense survival story.
Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster is definitely worth playing with all it’s impressive looks, environments, updated controls and graphics and flaws. You can still see some issues that were there in the original game but that fades after some time. You can easily feel the difference of Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster and 2002’s version of Resident Evil. And at the end of the game you have the Wesker Mode to release all your tensions and fears.
