Ready or not, the terror of Resident Evil 2 is here. In chapter one, the case of the disastrous T-virus outbreak--a mutagenic toxin designed for biological weapons--was eventually closed but the experiments were far from over. Control the destiny of Leon Kennedy or Claire Redfield as their nightmare begins when a biotech terror runs rampant in Raccoon City. Relentless zombies and hideous monsters are all out for a taste of your blood. If the suspense doesn't kill you, something else will.

3.0-424 Windows 7 x64 Intel Core i7-950 @ 3.07Ghz nVidia GeForce GTX 570 Noticeable slowdowns in some areas, mainly where there's many zombies (~70% speed). Full speed in most empty areas. Anisotropic filter must be off (x1) to avoid textures borders bug. Skullbot
3.5-1054 Windows 8 x64 Intel Core i5-3570 @ 3.4GHz AMD Radeon 5770 Glitchy audio bug is reintroduced in rev 3.5-1055, expected to be fixed shortly. The game runs perfectly otherwise. fly16
^3.5 Windows XP SP3 x86 Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 @ 2GHz AMD Radeon 4650 Very playable, with 100% almost all time. Slowdowns occur when there are many zombies (68% -> 78%). There are problems with the audio, but probably, this can be corrected with the use of LLE. DmitryN
4.0 Windows 7 x64 Intel Core i7-3930k @ 3.2GHz ATI Radeon HD 7900 Series Noticed no flaws whatsoever. Absolutely perfect. (However, it can be noted that I never played this title on the real Gamecube). Senistra
4.0 Windows 7 x64 Intel Core i7-4770 @ 3.4 GHz nVidia GeForce GTX 770 100% playable from beginning to end. Solid 30 FPS. No slowdowns even in areas with many zombies. Sometimes the sound cracks for a second when opening doors or changing areas. Clownseuche
4.0 Windows 7 x64 Intel Pentium E5700 @ 3GHz ATI Radeon HD 5570 Absolutely perfect. No slowdowns during the whole game. Atheoi
