Holy crispy crap what a post! The only game Ive played in the whole of this series is... the REmake on the Gamecube. I guess Id be atleast tempted to pick up the fourth if I see it on the cheap somewhere because apart from it obviously having better graphics than most games alive today, I hear that the controls are a bit better.

 

I mean, pressing up to go forward all the times all well and good... when your characters pointing up!

What a post!

Anyways.. hooray for Resident Evil... Its incredible how every single game is so exciting and fun from the beginning to the end.

Btw do anybody know where I could get that GC box set from 2003.. I've been looking all over for it for a few years now.. and how much do you think I'd have to pay for one?.

 

If I remember correctly that box contains:

Biohazard Zero

Biohazard Remake

Biohazard 2

Biohazard 3

Biohazard Code Veronica

Wesker Reports 1&2

 

correct?

Hi everyone! First post!

 

But I'm chiming in to note that the topic creator of this thread (shamelessly) stole the content I created over at Gaming-Age. So please don't give Dante the credit at all as none of his post is any of his work! Thanks!

Along with Zelda, R Evil has to be one of the greatest gaming series to date. R Evil 2 is still the best in terms of storyline but 4 beats it for gameplay.
