Let me begin by saying that my introduction to the Resident Evil series began with the Sega Saturn port of RE1. It really changed the way I looked at games at the time. Recently I've been getting back into the series, reading into it, trying to grasp the storyline, become familiar with all the weapons and enemies, etc. Something I've noticed during a lot of my online studying of the games, is that the Saturn RE1 takes a lot of unjust trash talk. Everywhere I looked I saw phrases like "It looks nasty", "It's slow", and my personal favorite "OMGROFL SATURN GOT PWNED SONY4LIFE!". My main complaint about this is they never explain why they say that. No details. Nothing. Maybe they are correct. We're here to find out.
This leads me to believe that none of these people even played the Saturn version, or that the initial shine of the game in their minds had already worn dull, so they were just disappointed that it turned out to be...just the same game. I mean they DID play through the game on Playstation about a year before it hit the Saturn. So I'm here to place both versions in a head to head match up. I'll try to cover all aspects of the game and give an unbiased conclusion, with visual representation of course.
