About this product
|As the story goes, reports of missing people and sightings of dog-like monsters have come out of Raccoon Forest. Bravo Team was sent in to check out the situation but after their helicopter crashed all contact was lost. You and your comrades, Alpha Team, are then sent in to investigate. Soon after your helicopter lands the team is attacked, some of which is shown in full-motion video. Out of fear the helicopter pilot takes off leaving the whole team behind. Some of the Alpha Team members are killed while the team flees for cover. Three of you escape into a nearby mansion that turns out to be filled with deadly creatures. At this point you take control of one of two available characters.|
Your choices are Chris Redfield, a former member of the Air Force who hopes to prove himself to the team quickly, and Jill Valentine, a master at picking locks who has already rescued many other team members from danger. Chris can take more damage but Jill can hold two more items. Some of the other main characters found in the game include Barry Burton, weapons expert and Chris Redfield's old friend; Albert Wesker, leader of Alpha Team and founder of the Raccoon City S.T.A.R.S. unit; and Rebecca Chambers, the youngest member of the team and an expert in first aid.
While moving through the mansion the view automatically switches between fixed camera angles, but is always from a third-person perspective. The mansion is filled with puzzles and monsters, the majority of which are zombies. Players will need to either avoid the enemies or eliminate them while searching for clues, keys and various other items as they unlock the many secrets of the mansion.

Survival Horror At Its Best
Everyone is familiar with this series. Capcom does it again with another hit. The only thing that I disliked, was the voice acting; however, I found it rather amusing at times(Barry: What is this?! Jill: What is it? Barry: Blood. I hope this isn't Chris' blood. Jill, see if you can find anything). See what I mean? Lol. I like the camera angles and the eerie music the game has to offer. The Saturn version has an Battle Mode option after you beat the game. Battle mode was pretty cool. Resident Evil wasn't a bad game for its time. I actually enjoyed watching my friends play it before I owned and couldn't wait to see what would happen next. Beating this game shouldn't be a problem if you manage your time wisely(you will be rewarded) and conserve your ammo. Vanquishing the Tyrant, Giant Plant, Hunters, Giant Snake, and Giant Spider was loads of fun. I still take time to relive the action of the game when time permits.Read full review

ITCHY, TASTY *****RATING
The Japan sega saturn version offers a little more blood and gore. Compared to it's American toned down playstation cousin . This game works great on pc emulators. If you don't have a japan sega saturn console. The graphics are a little less smooth then playstation but still delivers that same great feel. With new story line twist and boss fights this game will leave you wanting to play when ever you can. All audio is in english with Japan subtitles.Making it easy to play for those of us who don't speak Japanese. Instruction manuals offer new anime artwork and full character bio's. ***** rating hardcore resident evil/ bio hazard gamers only!

Evil moves to the Sega Saturn
The Resident Evil series is one of my all time favorites. The first game I played in the series was Resident Evil 2 for the Playstation, and for the three of you out there who haven't played it, it's a must. Resident Evil for the Saturn is more for the hardcore fan of the series than a casual gamer.<br>Directors Cut for the Playstation is far more easily obtained, is cheaper, and many claim is overall the better game since it has many features the original did not(see SteveMV's breakdown of the two games). Saturn exclusives are an unlockable battle mode after you beat the game, new alternate costumes(Chris Redfield's is awesome), a new B.O.W(a reskinned hunter), among others.<br>The fact is this, if you already have a version of Resident Evil for the Playstation or the REmake for Gamecube, this game is probably not worth getting. I got it because I didn't have a version other than the REmake, and the Sega Saturn is my favorite game console. If you have a Saturn and you love Resident Evil, get this game. The battle mode is the first one ever in a Resident Evil game and it's quite fun to blast your way through.Read full review

The Greatest Survival Horror Game Of All Time
This is the game that started it all. Resident Evil or (Biohazard) in Japan is truly the first survival horror game of it's kind and any fan of the series should buy a Sega Saturn just to experience the original, not only that but the Sega saturn version features an exclusive Battle mini game and zombie wesker fight not featured on any other platform. Resident Evil was also the first horror game to have 3D characters with pre-rendered backrounds. Why did I decide to buy it? why not it's the greatest survival horror game of all time!<br>My verdict 10/10.<br>Dawn3556
