Resident Evil Zero
Platform: Nintendo GameCube
Condition: Excellent, complete
NB! Requires NTSC (American) console
Welcome back to the world of survival horror–again. After the awesome remake of the first game, Resident Evil Zero goes even further back in time with this all-new prequel to the infamous “mansion incident”. This time you control Rebecca Chambers (the rookie medic featured in Chris’s story from the first game) and “framed for a crime he didn’t commit” prison escapee Billy Coen. Unlike previous Resident Evil games, though, you actually get to control both characters, and simultaneously; you can switch between either at any time, choose to have your partner tag along with you, set them to shoot automatically whenever a monster comes near or even control them manually with the C-stick. This unusual system works well and is, as you’d expect, a basis for a lot of split-up-necessitating puzzles.
