The Resident Evil Retrospective Part 2: The Fall of Raccoon City details the background and history behind Resident Evil 1.5, Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3.
The first part directly follows the first Resident Evil Retrospective Part 1: Horror Survives by going into the early details of Resident Evil 2’s development. This includes a lot of interesting video footage taken from the early, scrapped builds of Resident Evil 2, one of which has been dubbed by the active online Resident Evil community as Resident Evil 1.5.
The retrospective then dives head-first into the campaigns of Resident Evil 2 protagonists Claire Redfield and Jill Valentine as well as their prospective partners Sherry Birkin and Ada Wong. You get a look at the game’s overall storyline, the weapons, enemies, environments, unlockables and what separates the many versions of the game from each other.
GameTrailer’s retrospective then dives into Resident Evil 3. Interesting enough, it first separates into the two previous games that Capcom had tagged as “Resident Evil 3” during development. One went on to become Devil May Cry while the other become Resident Evil: Code Veronica. The third was finally released as the real Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. Like the above, it then dives into the game’s storyline, characters, details and extras.
Overall a very good retrospective as always. Can’t wait to see the next part!
