Digital Trends Pens a Fitting Resident Evil HD Remaster Review
Resident Evil is a legendary, iconic name in the world of video games. We already got a remake with Resident Evil REmake on the GameCube but Capcom has decided to give the original another fresh coat of paint. This one is an HD Remaster and horror aficionados everywhere love the idea of playing the shiniest, most accomplished version of this freaky classic.
It can be tricky to approach a review for such a game, mostly because it’s not a new effort. In fact, not only is it not a new adventure, the game in question is very old; archaic by today’s standards. Therefore, many younger gamers might not be that interested in such an old-school style, and you have to compare the game against what’s currently on store shelves. Well, that’s up to the reviewer but that’s the point: Approaching a review for something like this is tricky.
We think Digital Trends critic Anthony John Agnello did a fantastic job tackling the analysis. There’s a highly readable combination of proper technical evaluation and nostalgia. It basically explains the updates in detail and then tries to ascertain whether or not the long-time fans will appreciate it. Let’s face it: This is fanservice and if it’s to be done correctly, it has to satisfy various parameters. For those who want to learn more about the new Resident Evil HD Remaster, you can’t miss the review from Digital Trends.
Why We Like It:
— Explains the updates in great detail but doesn’t get overly technical. It’s easy to focus too heavily on the graphical upgrades and all that; there’s a nice balance here.
— Understands that in truth, this product is indeed fanservice, and reviews it as a game that should cater to the hardcore fans.
— Offers a brief history of the series, as would be fitting, and also steps back and evaluates without getting lost in a maelstrom of subjective nostalgia.
