Resident Evil 2 originally launched in 1998 and is considered a cult classic. It's quite possibly one of the best survival horror games ever made. The title features tense exploration and puzzle-solving gameplay that are staples in the series even to this day. Players join rookie police officer Leon Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield, who are thrust together by a disastrous outbreak in Raccoon City. The illness transforms the population into deadly zombies who just want to kill. Your job is to escape.
Today, Xbox Live's Director of Programming Larry Hryb announced that the Resident Evil 2 remake was on sale only during the weekend on the Microsoft Store. This means that only the Xbox One copy receives the discount of up to 33 percent off. The Standard Edition is going for roughly $40, and the Deluxe Edition costs roughly $52. Keep in mind that the Standard Edition has received the 33 percent discount, while the Deluxe Edition has only gone down by 25 percent. Since there aren't any expansions or critical content, you should probably pick up the Standard Edition this time around.
In our review, Jez Corden said, "Resident Evil 2 retains some of that... writing cheese, but the attempts Capcom made to inject more emotion into proceedings while fleshing out other aspects of the story undoubtedly pushed the game beyond the original. It all leaves me hungry to see what other classics like Resident Evil 3: Nemesis... Resident Evil 4 might look like reimagined by this team."
If you're in the market for a truly spectacular survival horror game, then look no further. However, you have to pull the trigger soon because this digital edition will go back up to $60 in 3 days. This is the first time Resident Evil 2 has received such a substantial discount. Hopefully this will happen in the future, too.
