Dino Crisis, PlayStation

Dino Crisis was a 1999 PlayStation release for Capcom and features soldiers taking on dinosaurs in a futuristic setting.

It was probably made to cash in on the success of Jurassic Park and plays a bit like an early Resident Evil game. No surprises when you consider that Dino Crisis was made by many of the same team who made the Resident Evil series.

Dino Crisis is pretty good. It’s got a female lead. Maybe too many door entry sequences though? It has sold more than two million copies worldwide, so someone out there certainly loves it…

Resident Evil 4, PC

The high-def Windows version of Resident Evil 4 looks a bit sharper than the GameCube original, but is essentially still the same great game.

The updated version (shown here) is the 2014 re-release called Resident Evil 4 Ultimate HD Edition.

Resident Evil 4 is considered to be one of the greatest games of all time, and for good reason. If you’ve never played it, you have never lived.

It’s on Steam. Wait for that sale. Then go get it.

Resident Evil 4, GameCube

Resident Evil 4 – THE standout survival horror game of the Noughties – was released exclusively by Capcom on the Nintendo GameCube in 2005, and it immediately became a critical and commercial smash hit. For all the right reasons.

The traditional zombie approach has been tweaked slightly, and this time you’re battling with weird Eastern European villagers and some super scary sub-bosses.

Resident Evil 4 has memorable moment after memorable moment, whether it’s fighting El Gigante, or having your throat torn out by zombie wolves – the action is relentless.

Those disgusting tentacles that spurt out of decapitated heads are a sight for sore eyes too.

Resident Evil 4 is a must-play game for all gamers. Except small children and people of a nervous disposition.

Killer7, PlayStation 2

Killer7 – it has to be said – is possibly THE weirdest game of all time.

Part first-person shooter; part on-rails shooter. A full-on nightmare of strange characters, both playable and not. Bizarre monsters, called “Smiles”, that approach you invisibly, before revealing themselves in a screech of laughter. A power-up system that collects the blood of your fallen foes. Unconventional boss battles…

Killer7 is relentless in its determination to weird you out. Hell, even the tutorial guy is dressed in a gimp suit and hanging from the ceiling…

Definitely an acquired taste, Killer7 is, although the game’s creators – Grasshopper Manufacture – must be applauded for trying something different to the norm.

Killer7 was released for both the PS2 and the Nintendo GameCube in 2005. It was developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and published by Capcom. These grabs are from the PS2 version.
