One of the headliner additions to the PS Plus game catalog for January 2024 is the Resident Evil 2 Remake. I played the PS5 next-gen upgraded version which was released in 2022 and offers the best experience for this game that you will find on modern consoles.

The Resident Evil 2 Remake is a remarkable reimagining of the classic survival horror game originally released in 1998. Developed and published by Capcom, the remake was released in 2019, introducing a new generation of players to the terrifying events that unfold in Raccoon City. This modern adaptation not only pays homage to the original but also elevates the experience to meet the expectations of contemporary gaming standards.

One of the most significant changes in Resident Evil 2 is the shift to an over-the-shoulder perspective, providing players with a more immersive and intense viewpoint. The RE (Reach for the Moon) Engine powers the game, delivering stunning visuals that enhance the atmospheric horror. The environments, characters, and grotesque creatures are meticulously crafted, creating a chilling and realistic atmosphere that heightens the fear factor.

The narrative of the Resident Evil 2 Remake follows Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield as they navigate the nightmarish streets of Raccoon City during a zombie outbreak. You are given the choice to play the story as either character. The game maintains the core plot elements of the original but introduces new details and story elements, offering surprises even for those familiar with the 1998 version. The voice acting, script, and pacing contribute to a gripping narrative that captivates players from start to finish.

In addition to the updated visuals and storytelling, the gameplay mechanics underwent a significant overhaul. The remake introduces modernized controls, a redesigned inventory system, and enhanced gunplay. These changes strike a balance between preserving the survival horror roots of the original and catering to the expectations of contemporary audiences. Resident Evil 2 received critical acclaim for successfully revitalizing a classic and delivering a horror experience that resonates with both longtime fans and newcomers to the series.

I am not a big fan of Resident Evil. I do love the movies and TV shows, but the games have always swayed me away from them. Not because they are bad, but more so because horror video games stress me out to the max. For some reason, I can't enjoy them like I do horror films. Games like this make me feel like I'm on the edge of a heart attack nonstop, it's just torturous to me.

With that said, it's quite clear that this game is outstanding. If I didn't get so scared playing it then I would 100% take the time to finish the story at least once. I sadly just can't will myself to do such a terrifying thing.

Enjoy watching me scream like a little girl in my gameplay and first impressions video.
