Here we are again with another entry, the fifth, of the [Game of the Week] column and this time the game featured is Resident Evil Zero for Game Cube!
Platforms: Game Cube (pictured), Wii
Genre: Survival Horror
Release Date: 21 November 2002
I still don’t own a Game Cube. This is probably the most successful console among the ones I don’t have (even though I shiver when I say “successful” about the GameCube since it was probably Nintendo biggest bomb). On the other hand I have two Wii and one of them is capable to read GC games so if some good GC game pops up online at a decent price I try to get it anyway. At the moment I only own two GC games and, as you may imagine they’re two games I’ve very fond of, Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0. While RE is the more polished version of the original game that is also the “base” for the latter remakes (until the Xbox One version), Resident Evil 0, whose events take place before the events of Resident Evil, was meant to be a Game Cube exclusive, breaking the almost-monopoly of Sony, “house” of the series since the beginning.
The game was later ported on other platforms and received good reviews praising the music score and the spectral atmosphere and represent an attempt to refresh the idea of the classic survival horror introducing new features, like the possibility to play with a partner.
Do you own this game? Have you ever played it? Tell me more in the comments section, let’s discuss!
