The environment was extremely well detailed maybe a little more detailed as most of the Resident Evil games out there with little to no movements. This is no Resident Evil 4, the graphics pretty much stayed the same way as the original Resident Evil game but gave it quite an interesting upgrade when it came to how the zombies moved, looked and attacked.
With the additional storyline that adds to the game you find out more about what's going on in the Spencer Estate Mansion and you learn more about some of the monsters including Lisa Trevor an experiment gone wrong. You even come across more areas in the mansion that the original never showed, like being able to go outside the back of the mansion or into the deep spooky woods of Raccoon Forest to find a strange cottage home of Lisa Trevor.
What I found most interesting is how the voice acting still sucks in the game, they could of hired a better experienced voice actor and actresses to play the parts, Wesker never sounded so original in my life even though Richard Waugh was not the one playing him I felt Wesker was just some typical asshole who wanted to create the most powerful biological weapon. I don't get how Richard Waugh plays Wesker in Resident Evil Zero but then a completely terrible voice actor voices him in Remake.
Once you beat the game you get some pretty awesome guns, and cool features like Forest chasing you around or more like stalking you around the mansion and you can't shoot him or else he'll explode because he has grenades around him making it impossible to even touch him. Another great part was the addition of the best fucking zombie ever the Crimson Head. Even though they are zombies that regenerate after they've been killed by the player they surely make an interesting appearance when you come across their dead body again later on in the game and they awake but faster, stronger and more creepy looking.
If they ever decide to make a Resident Evil 2 Remake from the looks of it they already decided to make Darkside Chronicles it is most likely we won't be seeing a RE 2 Remake, but if they did the gameplay they should use is from RE Remake that way it will look just like the original Resident Evil 2 game but with updated graphics, also they need to seriously take out that bad ass Leon rendering because in Resident Evil 2 on PS1 Leon looked so original he looked like he gave a rat's ass about people, but if they decide to make the Leon in Darkside Chronicles like the Leon Kennedy in Degeneration all hope will be lost. Could you imagine Leon being like that in DC? Ada is there holding on to dear life and Leon stands there and says "Let go, you lied to me you stupid bitch, I could care less about you Ada"
Leon isn't even sexy anymore he's so bitter that he makes Simon Cowell look like a positive person. Ditch that Leon Degeneration attitude and he'll be a liked character again.
