Ah... Resident Evil: Director's Cut, a updated version of the first Resident Evil. The first Resident Evil really defined the genre known as, "Survival Horror". It was originally released in 1996 for the Playstation and later ported to the Sega Saturn and PC. Director's Cut is an arranged version of Resident Evil, and it changed the location of almost every item in the mansion.

The game is set in fixed camera views. Which means you can't change the view of the camera while playing. This adds to the suspense and horror of the game. You go around the huge mansion, finding clues, horrors, etc. You find a variety of things once you start exploring the big house, ranging from little notes, herbs, guns, and a lot more. It encourages you to go deeper into the house, and find the biggest secrets of the game!

The plot is very well planned out. The Raccoon City Police Department's Special Tactics and Rescue Team (STAR) are given orders to investigate strange murders in the outskirts of the city. 2 Teams are sent, Bravo first, Alpha second. But Bravo loses contact with the Police, so they send in the Alpha team to investigate what happened to the Bravo team.

The major flaws of the game are kind of.. Major. The voice-acting. It is just terrible. You might feel like vomiting after you see the first scene between the Alpha team, because it is just bad. But it can be forgiven, there isn't too much of cut-scenes, but still, a major flaw.
Also, you only get 6 or 8 slots (Depends on Character you choose), which means you have to leave something when you find something even more important. I had to leave my pistol, just because I needed to get a key to open a door. And once you drop something, you have to find it.. Somehow. You can't just go back to where you dropped it, and pick it up again.

Final Words: Though the flaws can be quite annoying, Resident Evil: Director's Cut is an excellent game. It really makes you feel scared through the long, empty hallways, and the eerie music. This has got to be worth your hard-earned 10 buckaroos.
