Resident Evil 7 was a first-person perspective, soft reboot of the franchise. The developers knew they had to get away from the high-paced action of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 and return to survival horror basics: one person, trapped in a house, outnumbered by creepy enemies.
The Resident Evil 2 remake is further evidence of the franchise's return to form. Like in the original 1998 title, you'll take on the role of Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield as you fight your way through Raccoon City. With lots of "wet gore" to give your shotgun blasts extra splatter, this game is shaping up to be bloody good fun.
