Resident Evil 2

Face your fears in the ultimate test for survival. Something is desperately wrong in Raccoon City. A muta-genic virus has broken loose and the entire town is infested. Blood thirsty zombies, hideous mutations now overwhelm the community. When rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy and civilian Claire Redfield arrive in town, their nightmare is just beginning... now you control their destiny.

Resident Evil 2 is the game that embodies pure fear, suspense and terror in an experience like no other. You thought you escaped alive, but now comes the next chapter in the unparalleled game that defined the genre.


Leon S. Kennedy

Leon is a graduate from the police academy who has been selected for the Raccoon Police Department's newly established Select Police Force. Due to personal problems, Leon arrives late to the precinct for his first day of duty.

For the young rookie, it soon becomes apparent that he will have to make use of all his training and crime fighting capabilities in order to survive what awaits him in Raccoon City.

Claire Redfield

Claire Redfield is a college student and motorcyclist who has come to Raccoon City in hopes of finding her older brother Chris. As a confident tomboy-ish 19 year old girl, Claire manages to tackle any situation with extreme enthusiasm. Even with the lack of any formal training in combat/survival skills and weapons usage.

She is in fact, a natural survivor.


  • The Resident Evil 2 port for GameCube is based on the PS1's Dual Shock edition. Therefore, the graphics are similar. However, the GCN port has cleaned up visuals, character graphics look improved and the backgrounds are sharper. The quality of the FMV can be disappointing. Yet they still run with a higher resolution than PSX, though. Graphically, only the Dreamcast version fares better than this port.

  • Because this port does not make use of the power of the GameCube and looks very dated by present standards, it received mostly negative reviews from critics. Consider that fact when you look at the port's scores seen at the bottom of the page.


  • The game is compatible with GCN's analog stick and D-pad. It also offers rumble functions.
  • Play as either Leon or Claire, each with their own scenarios and different endings.
  • Extreme Battle - A minigame which is unlocked after completing any scenario on the normal difficulty setting. Contains three difficulty settings and four playable characters (two unlockable).
  • Arrange mode - It follows the course of the normal game with the same characters but instead of needing to find weapons, ammo e.t.c the player gets the rocket launcher, gattling gun and sub machine gun with infinite ammo.
  • The 4th Survivor & Tofu Survivor mini-games are included.
  • Cutscenes and dialogue can now be skipped, plus loading times are less time consuming than in the original version.
    This is how the critics scored: RESIDENT EVIL 2 (GCN)

    IGN 5.0 points ( out of 10 )
