Resident Evil 1 (1996) has recently been released on GOG, and if you haven’t played it yet, you’re missing out. Despite being a game from 1996, it runs impressively well on modern systems without the need for tweaking or modding. The game’s graphics may be a bit outdated, especially the pre-rendered backgrounds, but it doesn’t hinder the gameplay experience.

As a fan of the Resident Evil series, I was pleasantly surprised by how smoothly the game runs on GOG. Unlike other older games on the platform that may require additional work to run properly, Resident Evil 1 just works. The controls are responsive, the graphics are sharp, and the voice acting is top-notch. While there are fan patches available to enhance the visuals, I found the default settings to be more than satisfactory.

If you’re hesitant to revisit classic games due to compatibility issues, rest assured that GOG has done an excellent job with this release. Whether you’re a long-time fan of the series or new to the world of survival horror, Resident Evil 1 on GOG is a great way to experience the original game without any hassle. So, if you’re looking for a nostalgic trip back to the Spencer Mansion, give this version a try—you won’t be disappointed.
