Resident Evil 2 (1998) (PS1)
Adventure 21 January 1998
The second installment in the best-selling action-adventure game series following the survival horror convention. Similarly to the original installment, the game has been developed by the Japanese Capcom. The action of Resident Evil 2 is set after the events shown in the first installment – nearly all of the citizens of Raccoon City have been infected by a mysterious virus, which changed them into bloodthirsty zombies. Once again, a player gets to control two characters – this time around it is Leon, a young police officer and Claire, a journalist. Their task is to save Raccoon City from complete destruction and stop the virus before it spreads all over the world. In Resident Evil 2, gameplay revolves around exploration and solving environmental puzzles – another important aspect of the game is fighting numerous foes using a wide range of weapons limited by scarce ammunition. As befits an installment in the Resident Evil series, in order to survive and escape consecutive dangers, a player has to carefully manage the supplies he acquires on his adventure.
