Resident Evil 2 Biohazard RE:2 for PC is a horror survival game, a remake of the original which was released in 1998. The original was very well-received and often appeared on ‘top ten video game’ lists: hence the idea to remake it using all the beloved elements from the original, but merged seamlessly with modern game development and design techniques. There are twenty-four Resident Evil games altogether, and the series has grossed millions.

About the Game

There are two protagonists to play as rookie cop Leon Kennedy or college student Claire Redfield. The original game begins with Leon’s first day on the job and unfortunately for the poor newbie cop, this momentous occasion coincides with the release of a virus that turns the citizens into mindless blood-thirsty zombies. In the remake, the game starts about two months after the release of virus, when many of the citizens are already turned.

Leon meets up with Claire, who is looking for her missing brother, but events transpire to split them up. Fighting through town, whichever protagonist you choose has to try to make it to the police station, the agreed-upon meeting place. Depending on which character you choose to play as, you get a different series of events.

Play Through to Unlock a Second Run

Once you have completed the whole game as one character, you unlock 2nd Run which gives you the opportunity to do the game all over again, but this time from the point of view of the other character.

Because you have already completed some missions as the first player, for example, unlocking doors, solving puzzles or finding clues, your second character will not have to do these tasks all over again. But they may face dangers that you didn’t see the first time, so stay alert!

One Story: Two Points of View

Claire’s story: Claire finds a young girl, Sherry, in the grasp of a zombie and rescues her. She takes her home, only to find that her dad has turned (he was the creator of the virus) and is trying to infect his wife, Sherry’s mother. Claire has to repeatedly battle William as she struggles to keep Sherry safe even as she tries to meet up with Leon again.

Leon’s tale: Leon teams up with (is saved twice in quick succession by) FBI agent Ada Wong. They work together to try and get hold of a sample of the virus, all the while dogged by the mysterious Mr X. After a battle in the laboratory, Leon reunites with Claire, also meeting Sherry who is still with her.

Leon and Claire work together to kill Sherry’s dad, blowing him up in the laboratory. All three vow to continue the battle against the evil corporation behind the virus’ production.

Tips for Better Play

  • Pick your targets wisely. Ammo is limited and some zombies are better left in your dust rather than painstakingly taken out with bullet after bullet

  • Find all the hip pouches you can. These expand your inventory storage space and you will need as much as you can get. Each pouch adds two inventory slots to your armoury, so look out for: there are six in total. Look in the lab, the sewers, the underground facility and the police station

  • Stay armed at all times. Knives are reusable, grenades will take out a lot of zombies that are nearby and flashbangs will give you enough time to get away. Having one or more of these at all times is a must to give you the edge, should a zombie catch you unawares

  • Red areas on the map still contain secrets so don’t assume you’ve found all their secrets. Some objects are hidden, so make sure you open or examine everything. Completed areas on the map turn blue. Make sure you complete each area before moving through a point of no return, of which there are several

  • Flamethrowers are powerful, but dangerous and hungry for scarce fuel. If you find one, use it sparingly and in short bursts

  • Resident Evil 2 Biohazard RE:2 for PC is available for purchase on Instant Gaming for a fraction of its retail price. You will receive an official key and be able to play the game in seconds. Play smart. Pay less.

    Capcom is back! This RE 2 remake is so good. To me this is how it should look RE game not in some first person view like re 7 did. I had a lot of fun playing on hardest difficulty. Everything is top notch. Every step you take you need to think about it. This is not pew pew run run fiesta. Every bullet counts. Dont waste it. Mr X makes you ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ in a pants if you stay to long in one place. This feeling of danger makes your skin crawl. If you like old RE games this is for you. My only one downside is that there was no spiders in this game. Why? Doesnt make sense at all. Capcom fix this in RE 3 remake please. 9,5/10 Almost perfect.

    Worth Every Penny. I bought this alongside Re7 and RE8 (Still have to play 8) on a whim. Let me say I'm not disappointed with RE2. Probably in my top 10 favorite games of all time. Mr. X is my favorite part of the game without a doubt. Having him roaming the station is truly menacing. Did I also mention the police station is my favorite section of the game? Spoiler: It's because of Mr. X. Seriously though, I highly recommend this game to anyone, even if you aren't really into zombie games. I'm not a big zombie game person so i thought this would be sort of a game where i play it once and never again, but i found myself continually coming back to the game and replaying the police station section, and a few extra full playthroughs. The only thing I can think of that isn't the greatest with this game is the RTX functionality with this game. It doesn't have very good optimization for RTX and will have a lot of problems with RTX cards that don't have very much Vram (like my 4060ti 8GB). But other then that i would highly recommend this game to anyone who is on the fence of this game, because i remember playing this for the first time and being truly immersed and wish I could go back and experience that again. Because playing this game for the first time is like playing Minecraft for the first time. It is truly a unique experience that you only get once. Addendum: I also played this game blind in 2023 so I didn't know what it was about so it was an even better experience than the average person.

    Resident Evil 2 Remake is a phenomenal gaming experience that seamlessly combines nostalgia with modern gameplay mechanics. The updated graphics are stunning, immersing players in the dark and atmospheric scenario of Raccoon City. The revamped controls make every encounter intense and satisfying, while the intricate level design keeps you on your toes. The game strikes a perfect balance between preserving the essence of the original and introducing fresh elements. From the heart-pounding encounters with iconic enemies to the gripping storyline, Resident Evil 2 Remake is a masterful reimagining that captures the essence of survival horror. It's a must-play for both fans of the series and newcomers alike.

    As a long-time fan of the Resident Evil series, I eagerly dove into the remake of Resident Evil 2 with high expectations. I'm pleased to say that this game not only met but exceeded those expectations in terms of sheer terror, immersive gameplay, and the exhilarating fun it delivered. Capcom has truly outdone themselves with this remake, capturing the essence of the original game while adding modern elements that enhance the experience. Brace yourself.

    i ablsolutely love this game, the RE engine makes gore amazing, how the damage of guns shows in the bodies, the story is great. the standard mode is fair and easier the more you explore but hardcore is THE challenge, and the extra modes are what you need for even more gameplay and challenges. the 4th survivor ost is a banger

    Bought this game to prepare for Resident Evil 4 remake. Although different from the original, it provides a new experience and tale based on the original game. It's a great resident evil game by itself but just like RE3 Remake, it's rather terrible remakes of the original games. If you go in with the perspective of it being a reimagining of the original than it's totally fine.
    • Replayable with Bonus Content (NG+)
    • RE engine looks amazing.
    • Tons of side objectives to do.
    • Removed some content from the original game

    The right choise for people that love a good horror. The story is really good but it could have been longer. I like that you can put different outfints an that you can play as Leon and as Claire. Extra modes are good edition too.

    If you have never played a resident evil game, this is the one to start on. The ambience is perfect with great visuals, and it even runs on slower pcs due to AMD's FSR, which basically renders the game at a lower resolution and upscales it, giving you a boost in performance on any card, AMD or NVIDIA alike. It's definitely got some quirks and you might not enjoy the genre, but if you do, it's a great franchise.
    • Good Performance due to FSR and great optimization
    • Fantastic Price (offering great replayability)
    • A fun game with challenging mechanics and difficulty
    • Kind of a niche game (in my humble opinion)

    This was my first survival horror game after being reluctant to try one but being intrigued by the resident evil universes' lore, and, I must say I was not disappointed. Segments of the game really make your blood congeal and the omnious ambience which is present within some areas of the game really frightened me. It is far more of a psychological horror rather than throwing jumpscares at you. Overall I enjoyed this game due to its grotesque graphical style and its fun and harrowing gameplay mechanics.
    • Excellent graphics
    • Stimulates great horror
    • Survival gameplay elements well implemented
    • Second run of the game doesn't feel much different from first

    Probably the best of 3nd person Resident Evil games! Played two times back to back. A master piece, second only to Resident Evil 7 (I am devoted to more horror thriller tone, even I really enjoy action oriented games like RE 2 also!).
    • Excellent graphical environments
    • Best series control

    NOT A BOT : Works well, runs on Linux out of the box. Will require some tweaks which can be found on ProtonDB. Good story, graphics are nice and the FPS should remain stable with a decent-ish PC. The map is rather small sadly and Mr. X is just annoying at times.
    • Good gameplay & story
    • Story and map too short

    oved the biohazard series and played em all.

    this is a remake how a remake should be. it feels the same, just modern.

    the ambient is point on if you loved the old re 2 you will love the remake.

    however, im having a blast with this one.

    the game is absolutley amazing in my opinion. from the graphics, to puzzles, to letting the player use their brain unlike some other game (re3 remake). the story of both characters are amazing and interesting, though they could have made it so that they dont colide into eachother (for example 1st birkin boss). gunplay and gun variety is amazing and so is the enemy variety. levels are very good (no matter if the original had different, this is better in my opinion). my favourite level is the lab. it's amazing.the animations and voice acting is very good too. mr. x is very scary and i can garauntee everyone who played pooed their pants when they heard him walking around. my favorite in the resident evil series most likely because i'm bad at the fixed camrea games. i have beaten them but i just like this one more. love this game!

    An amazing remake of the classic game. Fantastic game really liked it and got it for a good price. My only negative is as mentioned zombies can be a little bullet sponge at times but saying that its made that way so you have a sense of suspense as you have to decide which ones you want dead and which ones your happy with avoiding.

    I have played the game for around four hours already and I don't want to stop but I guess sleep is more important. There are still some issues ofcourse in the game but I don't see that many issues at the moment. No game braking bugs for me yet and the game is yet to recieve updates and stuff. All new games start rough with a 10GB+ update

    I never enjoyed the old RE 2 but this one was such a blast to play! Highly recommended if you are interested in a single player zombie experience. There is more to the game than just killing zombies and running away screaming.

    Quite a good game, I've already played once as Leon all the way through and now i'm playing as Claire on my second playthrough which is very different from the first so make sure to replay. The game isn't as scary as i wanted it to be and if u compare it to outlast its a joke so don't count on being scared, I must say that the puzzles and backtracking are actually done very well and I enjoyed backtracking which would sound insane to someone new to these games such as me. This game is definitely worth a buy even tho i gave it a 70, i just judge games correctly and harshly but any game above a 5 is worth playing as that means its above average and most games these days id give something below a 4.
    • good story
    • Puzzles and backtracking are actually fun
    • Fun gameplay
    • Not very scary
    • Too many bullets to kill zombies

    Resident Evil 2 Remake is a great remake of the original, Capcom did an awesome work of mixing modern and old school gameplay! You have everything that make Resident Evil series a good game, the zombies are tough so you feel vunerable, Mister X chasing you is pretty stressfull and nice! Bosses fights are cool!
    The story still the same with some little changes, so it's nice.
    The only thing that bothered me a bit was the music, most of the time no music, I miss originals themes (you can buy it but I still think it must be in the game in the first place....). But the atmosphere, the sound design is awesome.
    Technically the game can be really demanding but you have plenty of settings to find propers settings that will fit your PC.
    Here, my all settings tested video (configuration used Ryzen 2700 GTX 1660 Ti 16Go RAM) :

    This is a must have game for sure!

    Everything i love about classic Survival horror with modern sensibilities in one tight clean and well crafted package
    heading back into Raccoon city has never looked so inviting

    Leon and Clair with supporting roles trying to escape the city after the T-Virus has caused a zombie epidemic,
    and a zombie outbreak has never felt so good.

    PC version comes out on top but console version are totally fine too,

    No glitches bugs or crashes to speak of,

    a well made piece of modern entertainment Well done capcom

    Estamos ante uno de los mejores juegos no solo del año, sino de la generacion. Es increible como un juego de la vieja escuela pueda volver a hacer historia en los tiempos que acorden, donde los videojugadores valoran mas los graficos, la violencia, y el componente online sobre todo lo extraordinario que ofrecen juegos como este.

    Resident Evil 2 es un juego que nadie se deberia perder, si bien se de antemano que no es para todo el mundo, es un juego estresante, agobiante y sobre todo dificil; es para aquellas personas que valoran un reto sobre otras cosas, por supuesto, un survival horror con todas las letras. Y espero que Capcom entienda de una vez por todas que este es el camino a seguir, no solo haciendo remakes, sino nuevos juegos de la saga Resident Evil o de otras sagas muertas, o incluso nuevas, pero de esta manera, sin abusos contra los jugadores, y con una dosis impresionante de creatividad.

    Tan solo me queda decir ¡Bienvenido de nuevo Resident Evil! Y espero que esto genere una nueva ola en juegos Survival Horror de este estilo, que ya lo veníamos necesitando desde hace mucho tiempo.

    • El juego es una “reimaginacion” del clasico Resident Evil 2, por lo que es una experiencia nueva.
    • Gameplay acorde a los tiempos, respetando el tradicional Survival Horror.
    • No es un juego para todo el publico, es para los que gustan superar retos y aman el genero del terror.

    One of the bes remakes I've played. The atmosphere is really good and scary. The graphics are awesome, although a bit demanding on lower spec computers. There is also free dlc for the game with interesting campaigns.
    • Very entertaining
    • A bit demanding on the graphics.
