Be afraid of Resident Evil 2: Platinum for Windows 95/98. Be very afraid, for if the suspense doesn't kill you, something else will!
In the mid-western town of Raccoon City, a sudden epidemic spread throughout the city when an "accident" occurred at the mansion lab located on the forested mountain. The Umbrella Corporation developed the T-Virus for its biological weapons use but their experiments lead to the creation of decaying zombies and creatures that killed for blood. The case was supposedly closed but a new virus was introduced and it's up to rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy and Chris Redfield's sister Claire to wipe the slate clean and free the city from rotting flesh.
Capcom felt that the success of their extremely popular Resident Evil games for the PlayStation would translate very well, if not better, to the PC. With this update, you get the original U.S. and Japanese versions which take advantage of 3D accelerated cards. Plus, you get extra bonuses such as the Extreme Battle Mode where you select one of four characters to play (each with his or her own special abilities and weapons) in a race to the police station while battling armies of zombies. A picture gallery with concept sketches and a Microsoft desktop theme pack with screensaver are also included to set the mood.
Resident Evil 2: Platinum is a horror fan's delight, staying faithful to the PlayStation's quality, yet giving you more bang for your buck. And, with the special add-ons, high-resolution graphics, various levels of difficulty and uncut blood and gore, playing in the dark couldn't be more frightening.
