Resident Evil 2 (or Biohazard 2 as it's known in Japan) is one of the most popular games in the series and has had a numerous amount of ports. In this video we examine all of the content, plot, and changes between the original PS1 release of Resident Evil 2 and all other versions that came afterward.
Special thanks to the Play Old PC Games blog (http://www.play-old-pc-games.com/2014/09/04/resident-evil-2/), the-horror.com, and the Resident Evil wiki on Wikia. All footage was captured by actual gameplay on hardware save for the final emulation comparison.
***It has come to my attention that there is another video on YouTube that was very similar by user Lotus Prince. This is a great video that came out first and covers a majority of what this video has in it. This was coincidental and not intentional and I have personally spoken with Lotus Prince. I had not seen his video when I selected, captured, and wrote the script for this project. You can find his video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQGlB1LITGA ***
