Resident Evil Anthology

1996 — Resident Evil

If the genre of survival horror and originated Alone in the Dark, then RE definitely pulled it to the masses. Born in the head of designer Shinji Mikami, the game in a sense blew up the industry, showed it a new branch of development, and itself for a long time settled in all sorts of tops.

It would seem that a million cliches and frankly poor dialogues should have confused the game (for which the game was even awarded a place in the Guinness Book of records), but the reviews were on top: “RE is not only interesting to play, it is interesting to watch it in principle.”

Resident Evil

A story about special forces soldiers: Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine. They had to survive in a mystical mansion filled with zombies and built over the laboratory where the deadly T-virus was developed.

Root treatment, safe rooms with huge storage boxes for items that don’t fit into your inventory. Typewriters for saving and screensavers in the form of opening doors. All this was born in the first part, and for several years it was the key elements of the series.

Resident Evil

1998 — Resident Evil 2

For many, RE 2 is still a favorite game of the series. First, the events of the second part of the first time moved to the virus — infected city Raccoon City-setting, which is usually associated with RE. Secondly, the protagonist for the first time was Leon-probably the most popular character in the franchise. The story of the first working day of a newly minted police officer, turned into a nightmare.

Resident Evil

Like the sequel to Silent Hill, instead of using familiar characters, the developers offered to play for completely new characters in a different setting, but with a plot related to the first part.

Resident Evil

1999 — Resident Evil 3: Nemesis

Once again, we had to spend time in the infected Raccoon City, fighting through hordes of zombies, which this time added a Nemesis-an overgrown mutant and the main antagonist in one mutated face. Again, as in Silent Hill, in the third part we act as the hero from the original part-Jill Valentine. The developers have created many more locations in the city, improved the camera. The zombies became “smarter” and could now chase the player down the stairs.

Resident Evil

Also, one of the key tasks of game designer Shinji Mikami was to create a sense of paranoia with the help of Nemesis, which, by the way, succeeded perfectly. After each battle with this powerful monster, in each new location, you expect the next attack, listen for every rustle, and this keeps the player in constant suspense.

Resident Evil

2000 — Resident Evil Survivor

The first failed experiment in the world of RE. With a first-person view, you had to quickly shoot back from the zombies with a guncon light gun, which contradicted the game’s trademark slow pace. In continuation of the misunderstanding, the American version generally refused to use a third-party device due to concerns about the impact of video games on cruelty. Despite this, according to reviews, even playing with a gun, the pleasure is questionable. As a result, fans received a strange parody collection of all the most ridiculous things in their favorite universe.

Resident Evil

2000 — Resident Evil — Code: Veronica

Originally released for the Dreamcast, the sequel to the third part. Chris’s sister, Claire Redfield, is captured trying to get into the umbrella branch in Paris and asks her brother to help her. Actually, the main story line and will take place for the brother and sister.

Resident Evil

The game marked the transition to the sixth generation of consoles and the use of polygonal environments instead of pre-drawn backdrops. Code: Veronica was adopted with a Bang and subsequently released wherever possible (except for PC, of course). All editions sold a total of four million copies.

Resident Evil

2001 — Resident Evil Gaiden

Can you imagine RE for the Game Boy? Capcom, like Umbrella, has set a goal to spread its virus in the form of the Resident Evil series on as many platforms as possible, even if the quality of these ports is questionable. RE Gaiden is a great example. Actually, the development was done by third-party people, receiving small instructions from Mikami. The plot, retelling the events of the first parts, easily deviated from the Canon, and the puzzles were reduced to collecting items. The resulting game was not liked and quickly forgotten, praising only the dark visual component.

Resident Evil

2001 — Resident Evil Survivor 2 Code: Veronica

Game with light gun number two. It is difficult to say whether Survivor 2 has become better than its predecessor. The plot is tied around the escape from Rockfort island, and there are characters and enemies from Resident Evil-Code: Veronica, hence the name. Also in the game is an unexpected Nemesis cameo from the third part, which appears every time the player runs out of time.

Resident Evil

2002 — Resident Evil (Remake)

Oddly enough, almost the most successful title in the series was the remake. Re-voiced and re-written, according to the developers, the new RE has become 70% completely different game. And all the work took a little more than a year. For a while, poor developers worked for two months without days off to meet the required deadline. Their work has undoubtedly paid off. Critics everywhere shouted that this is the worst horror, setting new standards for graphics for the industry.

Resident Evil

Unfortunately, despite the praise, the creators were not satisfied with the sales of the GameCube version, and this caused the transition of future parts of the franchise to action territory. In early 2015, a new HD version of the game was released.

Resident Evil

2002 — Resident Evil Zero

The visual side of RE Remake so impressed the audience that on the same engine Capcom released RE Zero-a prequel game to the first part. And again for the GameCube.

Resident Evil

In addition to excellent graphics, the game has an excellent plot and characters (including Rebecca from the first part). The company is held simultaneously by two main characters, each of which has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Resident Evil

2003 — Resident Evil: Dead Aim

Capcom’s latest attempt to impose a light gun on RE players. It is worth mentioning that all these dubious spin-offs are consequences of the fact that at that time Nintendo had a certain influence on the development of the series, which in turn was the result of Mikami’s not entirely successful decision to transfer the series completely to the GameCube.

Resident Evil

There is almost nothing to tell about the game itself. Except that the gameplay is now varied by switching to a third-person view and shooting while walking. With the events of the main story line, the game is connected only to the General universe.

Resident Evil

2003-2004 — Resident Evil Outbreak File #1 & File #2

Outbreak has become a retelling of old events by new characters with an emphasis on online. There are eight characters and five scenarios that can be played together. The problem was that the release on the European market was delayed for nine months, and this greatly affected the popularity of the game.

Resident Evil

In 2007, the us servers were shut down as unnecessary, and in 2011, the remaining Japanese servers were also shut down. The second part, released a year later, was generally very similar to its predecessor. The game has become faster, and some gameplay elements have been improved.

Resident Evil

2004 — Resident Evil 4

The best-selling part of the franchise and the record holder for sales in the genre of survival horror. Here, most likely, a lot of credit to Shinji Mikami-the father of the series. Whenever he took full control of the development (RE, RE Remake, RE 4), he took the series to a new level and set the standard for the rest of the genre.

Resident Evil

In the fourth part, Leon Kennedy took up the case again, having grown up and hardened by service in intelligence. No sullen zombies, now they are crazed villagers and religious fanatics. The game has become much more dynamic than its predecessor — quick time events are present both in the story and in an ordinary fight, and the camera is now hidden behind the hero’s back.

Resident Evil

But the most important thing is that all of the above was perfectly put together and liked even those who do not recognize anything other than the Canon, connoisseurs.

Resident Evil

2007 — Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles

An exclusive rail shooter for the Nintendo Wii, later released for the PlayStation 3 in 2013.

The plot is a collection of stories from different parts of the series that remain behind the scenes. In addition, the game has an additional Chapter, in which you will have to play the role of Chris and Jill to deal with the Umbrella Corporation in Russia.

Resident Evil

Critics agreed that railing does not interfere with the game, but rather makes it scarier. Although this made the Umbrella Chronicles seem too long, it received excellent reviews for almost every aspect of the game, including the graphics.

Resident Evil

2009 — Resident Evil 5

In RE 5, you will play as the classic hero of the series – Chris Redfield. This time in the heart of Africa, he will fight again not with classic zombies, but with mad aggressive people, like the inhabitants of Ganado from the fourth part. Although the game was generally received warmly, the fifth part received a lot of negative criticism: both for the fact that it became almost a shooter, leaving only the standard running around with the search for keys, and for the fact that it turned out to be too similar to the fourth part, allegedly changing only the scene and the main character.

Resident Evil

Saving elements for the game were excellent graphics and a clever co-op for two people. As it turned out, to pass RE 5 together is extremely exciting, and in this mode there is no matter about genre flaws.

Resident Evil

2009 — Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

Another series of flashbacks to previous installments, this time in RE 2 and Code: Veronica. As well as in the Umbrella Chronicles, there is one additional story already about the adventures of Leon between the events of the second and fourth parts. In addition to improving the already good visual component, the developers did a good job of listening to the wishes of the players about the last game.

Resident Evil

There were changes in the interface, added the ability to treat familiar green roots. Aiming has become much easier, and the parameters of the weapon itself can be built manually to your taste. The game was received warmly with a couple of rebukes in the direction of camera movement.

Resident Evil

2011 — Resident Evil Merchenaries VS.

Surprisingly, the first mobile VERSION was released only fifteen years later. The developers took the characters from the fifth part and placed them in the locations of the fourth, and provided the resulting game with several modes, including 2×2 multiplayer, in which you had to kill enemies for a while.

Resident Evil

2011 — Resident Evil: The Merchenaries 3D

Like the previous title, the Mercenaries 3D contains time-based missions. Released specifically for the Nintendo 3DS, the game has better graphics and improved gameplay that uses the features of the 3DS. Unfortunately, most critics agreed that the game lacks content, and it is more likely to be an add-on than a full-fledged release for the standard price. Capcom’s unusual move to fight the market for used games was also criticized. The Mercenaries 3D did not allow you to delete saves, thus hoping to prevent re-sales of copies. The reaction of the players was so negative that in the next parts of the series this point was corrected.

Resident Evil

2012 — Resident Evil: Revelations

In Revelations, the classic Duo of the first part, consisting of Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, returned. This time, the couple was thrown on a huge liner “Queen Zenobia”, covered with a new form of the notorious virus. Apparently, the fact that Revelations tried to return to its horror roots and become more frightening, the game is somewhat similar to the horror Cold Fear in a similar setting.

Resident Evil

Capcom decided to experiment with an episodic format and turned the game into a kind of series with cliffhangers at the end of each episode. After the game performed well on the Nintendo 3DS, it was safely ported to the rest of the top platforms a year later.

Resident Evil

2012 — Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

Together with Operation Raccoon City, developers from Slant Six Games once again provided the opportunity to replay the events of the second and third parts in the form of cleaning up the destroyed Raccoon City. Back in 1998, you can join the team of the company-the villain Umbrella, or Vice versa, work for the state and save innocent victims.

Resident Evil

ORC allowed up to four players to play in a co-op and pass a single company. Despite the seductive setting, the game failed to create the right nostalgic atmosphere, and it received very low-key reviews.

Resident Evil

2012 — Resident Evil 6

Tired of players complaining about the absence of classic zombies in previous installments, the producers of RE 6 returned their favorite dead, diversifying them with other forms. Moreover, the developers went further, saying that they plan to make the sixth part of the lead in the series and focus it around the most favorite elements of the franchise. As a result, the game almost turned into an action game, which in the future caused a lot of criticism.

Resident Evil

A special feature of RE 6 was the paired passage of four story companies. Leon, Chris, Ada Wong, and a couple of new characters travel around the world, once again fighting the virus, now called C-Virus.

Resident Evil

Despite the fact that RE 6 was the second best-selling in the series and has now sold over six million copies, Capcom was not satisfied with the result. About six hundred people participated in the development, and the expectations were appropriate.

Resident Evil

2015 — Resident Evil: Revelations 2

In the second part of “Revelations”, Capcom decided to follow the established recipe and released a worthy continuation of the last part. The main feature was the ability to play as Barry (a minor character in the first and fifth parts) and return to the ranks of the heroes of Claire Redfield.

Resident Evil

Nintendo 3DS this time bypassed and released the game simultaneously on all leading platforms. The episodic structure was maintained — four episodes aired one per week.

Resident Evil

2016 — Umbrella Corps

The most recent and probably the most unsuccessful release of the franchise. Seriously, the developers have moved so far away from the Canon in terms of genre and atmosphere that we can say that they presented a game that is not related to RE in any way.

Resident Evil

Resident Evil

2017 — Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

Announced at E3, RE 7 is going to offer a lot of new things. Developers succumbed to the fashion for first-person horror in the spirit of Outlast and Amnesia and decided to work in this direction with RE 7, and of course with VR support. The kitchen demo shown at the last E3, you can say, was a training session before the main title. It is noteworthy that for the first time in the entire series, the plot will be handled by a Western screenwriter. Maybe, in this regard, we are waiting for a completely new main character in an unfamiliar setting. He will be extremely bad with weapons, and no Leon or Chris will come to help him.

Resident Evil

2019 — Resident Evil 2 Remake

In contrast to the original game in 1998, the game world is represented by painted backgrounds, which “moved” three-dimensional models of heroes and enemies, the game world of the remake is represented by full three-dimensional levels. The game camera has also undergone changes: the remake uses a third-person perspective with a view “over the shoulder” of the main character, while the original uses a “static” camera.

The game takes place on September 29, 1998, two months after the events of the first Resident Evil, in the Midwestern American city of raccoon city. As a result of the leak of the T-virus, the latest biological weapon secretly developed by the pharmaceutical Corporation Umbrella, almost all the inhabitants of the city turned into zombies. The two main characters, rookie COP Leon Scott Kennedy, and College student Claire Redfield, meet at a suburban gas station where they discover infected people. When they reach the city, they get into an accident, because of which they are forced to separate. Both agree to meet at the police station, where they plan to find shelter from the mutated residents of the city

2019 — Resident Evil 3 Remake

Like the remake of Resident Evil 2, which was released a year earlier, Resident Evil 3 is a three-dimensional game with a third-person view. The behavior of the Nemesis monster chasing the main characters has been changed — its artificial intelligence has been improved. Despite the fact that the remake is more dynamic and intense relative to the original 1999 game, the project is not positioned as an action game. As in Resident Evil 2 2019, the player needs to save ammunition, monitor the health indicator and carry only the most necessary items of equipment, and in between battles to solve puzzles.

The game tells the story of a member of the special forces “S. T. A. R. S.” – Jill Valentine, who is trying to get out of the epidemic of an unknown virus in raccoon city. Actions will begin to occur a day before the story of Resident Evil 2, as well as 2 days after.

re3

Twenty years makes a pretty solid list. You can immerse yourself in the world of Resident Evil, passing titles from the first to the last. By the way, in THE near future, the re regiment is expected to be replenished again. In the near future we will be pleased with the long awaited Resident Evil 8
