Liner Notes VII: The atmosphere and drama of Resident Evil 2

(Editor’s note: From Parasite Eve to Silent Hill, everyone’s got at least one videogame tune stuck in their heads. Enter Liner Notes: a Pixelitis feature in which our writers discuss their favorite videogame soundtracks.)

When it comes to horror games, music creates an interesting duality. On one hand, it can be one of the most essential parts in enhancing the game’s atmosphere, while in other titles (like Clock Tower), it’s the lack of background music that heightens the tension.

In the 1998 survival horror classic Resident Evil 2, the score is rife with the the sort of horrific ambiance you’d expect to hear in a horror title while also taking into account the more adrenaline-induced, Hollywood-style moments that the game entailed.

I really want to see this remade like RE1 on the Gamecube.
Improved graphics, voice acting and a few surprises like new areas and enemies.
Would be amazing. RE2 had some pretty big set pieces and with today's graphics it would look stunning.
Thinking about it it could even work with RE4 style controls with the over the shoulder view.
Just keep it faithful to the original without QTEs and punching boulders.

Also nostalgia levels were high listening to these old tracks in the article!
Brings back some great memories.
