Parents will most likely want to steer their young children clear of Resident Evil for the GameCube. It is extremely graphic and bloody.
Most fans of the original Resident Evil or it sequels will probably find this game a dream come true for its expanded story and groundbreaking updated graphics.
However, those who were hoping the series would finally evolve in any significant way will be somewhat disappointed. People who arent familiar with this series might have mixed reactions.
Those coming to the style of the series for the first time may find it well worth the gameplay, but others may find it needlessly clunky regardless.
People looking for a good horror game will probably like Resident Evil since it does deliver some nice atmospherics, scares, and a creepy plot, but those looking for something that challenges the imagination like Silent Hill should probably stay away.
