As the story goes, reports of missing people and sightings of dog-like monsters have come out of Raccoon Forest. Bravo Team was sent in to check out the situation but after their helicopter crashed all contact was lost. You and your comrades, Alpha Team, are then sent in to investigate.
Soon after your helicopter lands the team is attacked, some of which is shown in full-motion video. Out of fear the helicopter pilot takes off leaving the whole team behind. Some of the Alpha Team members are killed while the team flees for cover. Three of you escape into a nearby mansion that turns out to be filled with deadly creatures. At this point you take control of one of two available characters.
Your choices are Chris Redfield, a former member of the Air Force who hopes to prove himself to the team quickly, and Jill Valentine, a master at picking locks who has already rescued many other team members from danger. Chris can take more damage but Jill can hold two more items. Some of the other main characters found in the game include Barry Burton, weapons expertand Chris Redfield's old friend; Albert Wesker, leader of Alpha Team and founder of the Raccoon City S.T.A.R.S. unit; and Rebecca Chambers, the youngest member of the team and an expert in first aid.
While moving through the mansion the view automatically switches between fixed camera angles, but is always from a third-person perspective. The mansion is filled with puzzles and monsters, the majority of which are zombies. Players will need to either avoid the enemies or eliminate them while searching for clues, keys and various other items as they unlock the many secrets of the mansion. ~ Jonathan Sutyak, All Game Guide
