Resident Evil 0 (Zero) GameCube Full Story video walks you through the storyline, including boss battles, and shows all cut-scenes from beginning to ending
Easily one of the most overlooked Resident Evil games of recent times is Resident Evil 0 (Zero), for the Nintendo GameCube. It was released on Nov. 10th 2002, only 6 months after the Remake of the original Resident Evil was released on the Cube, therefore RE0 hardly felt new, and matter of fact, it wasn’t. The game was actually originally scheduled for release on the N64, and only many years later was it ported to the GameCube (after many thought it had been canceled for good).
That didn’t hurt the game though. Upon release Resident Evil 0 had (and still has) some of the slickest graphics you will ever see. It definitely impresses, although it’s very similar in style to the GameCube remake, both use extremely detailed pre-rendered backgrounds.
Resident Evil Zero is quite unique in that it stars Rebecca Chambers and is a prequel to the first game. Rebecca is the rookie S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team member you run into while playing as Chris Redfield in the original. Another new character introduced in Zero is Billy Cohen, a convict who was charged with murder, and ends up stuck on the train with you. Eventually the two characters grow closer to each other as they the face their horrible adventure together, and while the beginning is set on the train, the game quickly dives into other more traditional Resident Evil environments and a whole new subplot in the RE Umbrella mythos is revealed.
Resident Evil 0 is a really enjoyable game (I’ve beaten it several times) and one that all fans should check out. For those who have never played it or maybe think they never will, or are just curious to put more pieces of the complex Resident Evil mythology together, check out this Resident Evil 0 Full Story Video, which shows all the cut-scenes from the game, from it’s crazy opening to it’s conclusion and includes bits of gameplay footage, including boss fights.

It amazes me how remarkably similar the N64 version looks to the finished GameCube version. The graphics don’t look too shabby, in they look better than the PS1 games, and the scene is a complete match with the finished Cube version.
