VGChartz's Jake Weston: "There are still certain trepidations I have toward the remaster, though they certainly can't be helped. For one, I'm disappointed that the game's cutscenes appear to still be in the original low resolution. Not a big deal, I understand that; what I don't understand is the need to crop the original fullscreen-rendered cutscenes to fit into widescreen. Even when selecting the option for them to be played in the original 4:3 aspect ratio, cut scenes are still cropped for widescreen, removing a big chunk of the original image. I also could take or leave Billy's voice acting (although the way he says "Staaaaaaaars" is hilarious).
With this re-release, Capcom is one step closer to bringing every Resident Evil game to HD platforms (Resident Evil 2 and 3: Nemesis remakes - get on it Capcom!), as well as re-introducing players to one of the most interesting games in the series."
