Resident Evil 2 Story –

If you don’t know the plot of Resident Evil 2, There’s not much that you’re missing on. Although it is my advice to see the background and origin of the Zombie breakout to feel the real joy of killing those dead men. In Midwest American central, a mountain community named raccoon city is affected by a virus outbreak called “T-virus.” T virus is a biological weapon developed by a pharmaceutical community named Umbrella Corporation. Leon(Police officer) and Claire (college Student) are on their way to hunt the swarm of the dead army and mitigate the virus from the city.

Next, the sound of this Resident Evil 2 game is much better than any other in the role-playing games. The salvo of Zombies dropping all over you, trying to have a piece of your brain, the growling, and weird creepy noise of scratching scare you. The noise and terrifying sounds put stress on your decision-making veins and make it more difficult to survive. The composition is to kill for, and the blasting background makes me wonder whether I’m against a real zombie apocalypse.

Best facelift ever, an upgrade that was there for modern age generation, in fact, the game is somewhat a recollection for people who played the game in 1998 and an adventure of a lifetime for those who are new to Resident Evil 2.

Gaming sequence and add on features in Resident Evil 2 are something one must look out for. I can write many paragraphs on the enhanced gaming skills this game has to offer. It is by far the best shooting game. The mass killing of zombies is satisfying.
