Resident Evil HD Remaster comes out today in North America and there are several reasons why it needs your attention. The game’s initial reviews have all marked it high scores, something that was probably obvious since the game’s announcement but yet people were perhaps still worried over the possibility of Capcom messing with the brew.
The game is a remastered version of a remake of the original 1996 game, which was released for the Nintendo Gamecube in 2002. The new versions supports 1080p resolution and gives you the choice of aspect ratio between 4:3 and 16:9. Additionally, there is support for surround sound and analogue controls, as well as the older tank controls. There’s also a new ‘very easy’ mode for obvious beginners.
Here’s a roundup of the game’s published reviews.
