Resident Evil (2002) Film Review

Resident Evil Film

So this marathon has finally made me sit down and watch the Resident Evil live action films… You’d think I would have seen them already given how much I like the game series, but half way through the next film I was out, and never returned (more on THAT tomorrow…) This film, while nothing like the original game (or its remake!), does at least capture a lot of parts that regularly appear in the games, and by creating a whole new cast means they were free to do what they want without upsetting the game fans. So what was it like? Let’s find out!

Resident Evil: Remake (Gamecube) Review

RE Remake

Thanks to already having reviewed the original Resident Evil, I’ll be tackling the far superior remake up against the film of the same name, which is vastly different in every way despite being released in the same year! The Resident Evil Remake still remains one of the most legitimately tense and atmospheric games I’ve ever played, as well as one of the more challenging for newcomers… Let’s take a look!

Resident Evil: Vendetta Review

Resi Vend

After finishing off the original trilogy of games yesterday, we now finish off Resident Evil Week in general with the reason for the week in the first place: the release of the new CG film Vendetta! Boy… it’s certainly a lot more violent and gory than the two before it, that’s for sure. It also has some extremely entertaining set pieces in it, and is generally a fun “shut your brain off” movie set in the Resi game universe. With that said, let’s take a closer look!

Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (PS1) Review

Resi3

Capping off the original trilogy of Resident Evil games on the PS1 (and continuing Resident Evil Week from yesterday’s look at the second CG film) we have Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. While this still uses the same engine as the previous 2 entries, they have at least finally addressed some of the issues that have been plaguing the games and delivered a nice slice of continuity by setting the game in and around the other two entries in the series. Let’s take a closer look!

Resident Evil: Damnation Review

Resi Damn

Continuing on from yesterday’s look at the second Resident Evil game, we look at the second Resident Evil CG film, Damnation, once again staring Leon S. Kennedy, and this time fellow Resident Evil 2 debutant Ada Wong. Thankfully the four years between the two films were obviously full of either leaps forward in technology, or just better technology becoming cheaper, as this film is a lot prettier to look at and full of a lot less awkward animations! Let’s take a closer look…

Resident Evil 2 (PS1) Review

Resi2

After yesterday’s look at the first CG film that starred Leon and Claire, it’s time to pop back over to the games that started it all and look at Resident Evil 2, the game that gave us the same duo in the first place. While it still suffers from a lot of the same problems that playing the first game in 2017 did, it does have some additions and little tweaks to talk about… so let’s get to it!

Resident Evil: Degeneration Review

Resi Degen

Resident Evil Week continues after yesterday’s look at the first game in the series. Resident Evil Degeneration is the first in what is now a trilogy of CG films set within the computer game universe of Resident Evil, and it’s a wonky affair to watch in 2017. The CG and character movement have now dated to the point where it feels like it could have been pulled off on the previous generation console hardware… Is there anything redeeming in watching this now? Well…

Resident Evil (PS1) Review

Resi1

Kicking off Resident Evil week across my two blogs, we have, rather fittingly, the game that started it all in the first place. Slow tank controls, blurry / pixelated graphics and so-bad-it’s-funny voice acting, it’s safe to say this hasn’t aged well… especially when a superior remake exists! Oh well, let’s take a good look anyway…
