Description Edit | History

"Resident Evil 2, known in Japan as Biohazard 2 (バイオハザード2), is a survival horror video game by Capcom originally released for the PlayStation in 1998. It is the second installment in the Resident Evil series, and was later ported to Microsoft Windows, Nintendo 64, Dreamcast, Nintendo GameCube, and Game.com.

Resident Evil 2 follows the same gameplay mechanics as its predecessor. The game's graphics are composed of polygonal character models, and items superimposed over pre-rendered graphics, using fixed camera angles. The player must travel through a variety of locations, solving puzzles and fighting numerous mutated creatures in order to complete the game. The player can arm themselves with a variety of firearms, although ammunition is limited. The game features an improved graphics engine over the previous game, allowing for more zombies to appear on screen. In addition, the player can now determine their character's health based on their animation. A character in the 'caution' stage of injury will cover their stomach with his or her hand, while a character on the verge of death will limp."
