Hello and welcome to Jay’s Game Reviews! Today I am reviewing Capcom‘s Survival horror game remake of Resident Evil 2.
Resident Evil 2 pits players against a seemingly never ending horde of flesh eating ghouls. The game takes place (like others in the franchise), in Raccoon City; primarily within the confines of the police station. Players of the original game will have their nostalgia itch scratched while still getting to experience something brand new and fresh. Players who have never played the original game will still be able to enjoy this game without feeling like they are missing part of the story.
- Beautifully remastered. The game has been remade using modern gaming technology. Everything is rendered amazingly and looks phenomenal! Every hair, pool of blood and drop of sweat has never looked better. The shadows and glare of lights adds a very gloomy and dark feel helping set the creepy mood for the world around the player.
- Voice acting. The voice acting in the game is well done and believable. This helps the player care about the characters that they are controlling as well as the NPC’s throughout the game.
- Costumes. Yes, for a few extra dollars players can add a few extra costumes. While normally I would count DLC as a Con, in this case it helps add to the experience. If players choose to play in the Noir costume, the game will be played in black and white. This, in my opinion gives the game more of a creepy feel.
- Scary. Speaking of that creepy feel, this game is both scary and surprising. There is just enough different from the original to make everything feel new and each corner feel like a potential game over.
This remake of the classic survival horror game Resident Evil 2 uses today’s gaming technology to give a fresh new look to an already amazing game.
Does this weeks game sound fun to you? You can pick up Resident Evil 2 for yourself on Steam or at the website and fight to survive yourself!

Game: Bright Memory – Episode 1
Available Platforms: PC
Price: $6.99 (USD)

Genre: Action, First Person, Shooter, Melee
Developer: FYQD Personal Studio
Release date: Nov 15, 2018
Hello and welcome to Jay’s Game Reviews! Today I am reviewing FYQD Personal Studio’s Early Access Action game Bright Memory – Episode 1.
Bright Memory is a First Person Action Shooter that mixes gun play elements with magic and sword art. The game is full of monsters that each have a weakness and it is up to the player to find and exploit that weakness.
- Beautifully rendered. This game, created with the Unreal Engine, is pure art. The level of detail combined with gorgeously designed characters and worlds are something to marvel!
- Plethora of enemies. This game is loaded with unique creatures and monsters all of which have a weakness to exploit. Some have shields, some fly, while still others are just freaking huge and can take a beating!
- Long list of skills. As the player you will have a ton of skills and abilities at your disposal. From an EMP type blast that blasts the enemies back to a simple bullet to the skull. You can do a simple slash with your blade or perform an electrified ground pound that will send enemies flying across the screen!
- Combos. Players can use the large variety of abilities to juggle monsters in the air building up massive kill combos.
- A fun and interesting story. If you take the time to read it (or listen if you understand Chinese) you will experience a fun story about a war between the ancients and modern science.
- Controls. Playing this game as I did with a mouse and keyboard is a massive undertaking. There are so many button combinations that it makes playing the game with anything resembling skill near impossible.
Bright Memory – Episode 1 is a terrific shooter game with a nice element of beat em up style fighting mixed in. The game is a steal at only around $7 USD and a fun, addicting masterpiece that keeps on giving. The graphics alone really make this game stand out and I highly recommend it.
Does this weeks game sound fun to you? You can pick up Bright Memory – Episode 1 yourself over on the Steam Store and kill all the things!
