5Resident Evil 2

There’s quite a lot more to the 2019 remake of Resident Evil 2 than simply being a zombie game, but that’s the crux of it. Playing as either Leon or Claire, you’ll find yourself battling your way through Raccoon City Police Department and a host of other locales, facing grotesque undead foes as you go.

True horror is the recipe of the day in Resident Evil 2. It’s less about battling through hordes of zombies as it is about carefully sneaking past freaky enemies. It’s tense, it’s terrifying, and it’s all the more brilliant because of it. We’re not sure exactly if Mr X counts as a zombie, but we’re not here to argue semantics. He isn’t fully human anyway, put it that way. And if he’s chasing after you, you better just run.
