Capcom's 1996 blockbuster PlayStation game, which helped establish survival horror as a viable genre, is the subject of this enhanced remake exclusive to the GameCube. Franchise creator Shinji Makami has supervised the translation, which introduces real-time environmental effects designed to make the pre-rendered backgrounds more believable. Grass will sway in the wind, water will run, and blood will drip as players witness new animations for main characters Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine.In addition to the refined visuals made possible by the jump from a 32-bit to a 128-bit system, Resident Evil features new voice-overs recorded to elicit a more dramatic mood than the stilted and monotone deliveries heard in the original. As players progress through the haunted mansion, battling zombies, ravens, dogs, and other undead creatures, a number of new bonuses can be unlocked. These include costumes, a different game mode, and additional weapons to extend the horror classic's core gameplay.
